Tofino condo description

The charming fishing town of Tofino, British Columbia draws vacationers from all over the world. A little hard to get to but worth the trip, this remote Vancouver Island destination boasts The Pacific Rim National Park Reserve, The Wild Pacific Trail, varied and eclectic dining opportunities, a world-class Resort & Spa (The Wickaninninsh Inn), Canada's only competition-level surfing beach (Long Beach) and numerous recreational outfitters who are ready to treat you and your party to whale and bear watching excursions and a host of other unique guided tour experiences.

Tofino is a scenic 3 hour drive from the ferry boat port of Nanaimo or a five hour drive from Victoria. Along with the 'weirdness' and charm that is Tofino, you will find every modern 'necessity' from WiFi and the grind-your-own gourmet coffees sold at the Tofino Co-Op to the chef's Tasting Menu with wine pairings at The Pointe Restaurant.

The Loft Condo (we prefer the Canadian term 'Strata') is only a few years old and everything in it was purchased new and was selected to be comfortable and esthetically pleasing. If your idea of vacationing is resting and doing a whole lot of nothing then welcome to our world. You can spend all of your time in the strata watching movies (regular DVD and Blu-ray formats) on the 51-inch high definition Sony TV with Bose 3.1 sound, listening to music, staring at the fireplace, gazing out the two-story wall of window at the slow parade of float planes, fishing boats, kayaks and birds (frequent North American Bald Eagle sightings) or at the distant snow-capped peak or the not-so-distant rain forest islands across Clayoquot Sound.

If you like a little more action on your vacations, try surfing, cycling (mountain or cruiser bikes) hiking, kayaking, fishing, touring the islands from the air, beach combing, surf sailing, skateboarding (Tuff City Skatepark) or just about any other recreational sport activity you care to dream up (that doesn't require snow).

So come recreate, reinvigorate, relax, refresh or just eat & rest your way to vacation contentment.

              Year Purchased: 2009

              About: Please come and enjoy 'Beautiful British Columbia' in our Pacific Coast gem. Equipped for maximum comfort and enjoyment, we count the days until we can get away from our daily grind and the heat of South Texas and return to the majestic, scenic and temperate Pacific west coast town of Tofino. 'A Quaint Little Drinking Town With A Surfing Problem.' PS You MUST try the polenta fries, fish tacos and macadamia chocolate cookies at SoBo Restaurant - a pleasant walk from the strata. Cheers!

              Why Tofino:
              We stumbled onto this amazing project (The Shore) while celebrating a wedding anniversary and everything fell into place. We think it's one of the world's unique vacation destinations. Cool summer temperatures are certainly a big draw for us when South Texas swelters.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              The ultimate 'down time' experience.
