Property description

This one-bedroom walk-out executive suite overlooks the exquisite Clayoquot Sounds in Tofino with stunning views across the water to the mountains beyond. While the SHORE is located in the center of the village of Tofino, it is set on the water below the street; the only distractions are eagles calling, fishing boats and the occasional float plane. The suite is within walking distance of world-class restaurants. Should you choose to dine at home, the designer kitchen is fitted with Miele and Krups appliances, with ample stone and glassware for entertaining guests. Use the outdoor grill to cook the fish you catch. Dine indoors at the recycled fir dining table that seats eight, or dine al fresco on the patio made private by strategic plantings. JC Scott designed eco-furnishings provide an understated west coast ambience where the outdoors commands center stage. The custom-made western maple desk divides the dining and living areas and looks out onto the sounds and mountains beyond. It is the perfect place to write! Sit on the sofa, or on the ledge under the window with your coffee, and watch the morning sun creep onto the mountains across the sounds - or the setting sun paint the sky with unimagined colors. Lounge on the sectional or patio with your favorite book, if you can pull your eyes away from the ever changing view. Luxuriate in 300-thread count linen in the queen-sized western maple custom-made bed and drink in the view of the Sounds. Practice yoga in the bedroom alcove by the window. Soak in the generous tub or shower in the travertine-tiled bathroom with heated floor tiles. There is ample cupboard space in the bathroom and adjoining dressing room. Float planes, boats and kayaks that can transport you to more remote parts of the coast, rain forest, mountains, glaciers are close by. Bus, bike or drive to local beaches and hiking trails.

Other Amenities

  • This is the perfect space for writers, artists and photographers! While in the centre of Tofino, the only traffic noise is the distant sound of fishing boats and the occasional float plane landing in the sounds. Tofino has a range of annual festivals: Whale (14-22 March); Shorebird (1-3 May); Food and Wine (5-7 June); Pacific Rim Summer (4-20 July); Carving (28 Aug-19 Sep); Lantern (16 August); Oyster (19-22 Nov). The SHORE is situated on the water in the Clayoquot biosphere, where eagles wheel in the wind currents, birds migrate each year, orca visit and sea otters play. When you tire of active adventure, soak in a hot pool, visit a spa or organise a massage in your suite and soak in the peace and stillness that are without parallel. To minimise distractions, there is no TV or phone in the suite. As evening falls, visit one of the world class restaurants nearby, cook in the well-equipped kitchen or use the Weber grill on the patio, while watching the sun sink below the horizon....moreless

Car: Not Necessary

The SHORE is situated on the water in the Clayoquot biosphere, where birds migrate, Orca visit and sea otters play. Come to celebrate one of many festivals in Tofino: Oyster Festival (November); Whale Festival (March); Food and Wine Festival (June); Carving on the Edge (September). Spend time relaxing and just be-ing, soaking in the beauty of the surrounds, or engage in the many water sports offered in this combination of Sounds and surf, visit the ancient rainforest on Meare's Island, learn about the First Nations' culture, see bears in their natural habitat, soak in hot springs, take Atleo Air's float plane or helicopter to remote locations along the coast or in the mountains, or go storm watching at Long Beach. When you tire of action and adventure, soak in a hot pool, visit a spa or organise a massage in your suite and soak in the peace and serenity that is without parallel. As evening falls, watch the sun set from the privacy of your suite or at a range of easily accessible west coast sites. Then your biggest decision will be whether to dine in on the fish you have caught or sourced locally, or at one of the world class restaurants that are close by.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: I am from New Zealand and my recent work has been based in the South Pacific. Since purchasing this property in February 2013, I am using every possible opportunity to spend time in Tofino.

Why the Owner Chose Tofino:
I first visited Tofino in June 2012. My stay in the SHORE building gave me an opportunity to experience first-hand the exceptional construction and award-winning design that are the outcome of the developer's dream and long-term relationship with Tofino and the Clayoquot Sounds. I left knowing that it was imperative for me to have a soul space here. This achieved, I look to share it with discerning guests when I am unable to be in Tofino.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The beauty, tranquility and wonder of the Clayoquot Sounds, the size of the village (pop 1800), along with a wide range of opportunities for adventure in one of the most stunning playgrounds in the world, captured me in that first visit. The SHORE provides unobstructed water and mountain views of the Clayoquot Sounds where eagles soar on the wind, numerous bird species rest during their migrations, sea otters play and Orcas visit occasionally. While the SHORE is in the center of town and within walking distance of world-class restaurants, it is totally divorced from the bustle of traffic and street noise. This is the perfect place for me to write, work on photography, kayak and begin to explore the many natural wonders in the Clayoquot Sounds, in short, following my dreams while living in an executive suite with west coast eco-friendly ambience.
