About the property

Spacious oceanfront home on 1 acre with 3 Bedrooms and 3 full Bathrooms.

Clayoquot Calm is located on 1 acre of private, peaceful, oceanfront property that overlooks the stunning views of Browning Passage in Clayoquot Sound. This custom designed 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom, one level, spacious home easily accommodates families and groups who enjoy vacationing together and is accessible to those with mobility issues. Ideally located within walking distance (1km) from the village of Tofino and within 5km of world-renowned surfing beaches like Chesterman Beach, Cox Bay and Long Beach, Clayoquot Calm is perfect for those seeking an idyllic west coast experience.

From the instant you walk in the door, our uniquely designed home welcomes you with breath taking waterfront views of Browning Passage from the living room, dining room as well as the master bedroom. Once inside, the open floor plan leads you through the living room with a wood-burning fireplace into the gourmet style kitchen. Off the kitchen, through beautiful, double patina fir doors, you find a games room that offers a fully equipped pool table and a large indoor sauna completely finished in cedar.

To enjoy the awe inspiring views outdoors, step out the glass French doors, between the dining and living rooms, onto the large concrete patio. Once there, have a seat in a handmade cedar chair to take in the amazing view while you deep breathe the fresh west coast air.

From the covered portion of this extensive patio, a 5 person hot tub, easily accessed from the living room, or master bedroom and ensuite, offers "apres-surf" or evening relaxation -- yet another soothing, relaxing venue from which to drink in the intoxicating phenomena that is the west coast.

Once you experience the rejuvenating magic of this idyllic retreat that is Clayoquot Calm, two things are certain: you will want to extend your stay and you will definitely need to return!!

Very Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Clayoquot Calm! Spacious & private, this is the perfect place to relax & unwind. The kitchen is well equipped, we cooked in frequently even making Eggs Benedict for breakfast one morning. The heated floors made it so cozy. We sat in the hot tub every night, even when it was stormy. The town of Tofino shuts down a bit in January, but we had nice experiences at the Shelter Restaurant, Tofino Brewing, & Wildside Grill. If you are looking for a fun relaxing getaway this is the place for you!

I’d like to start by saying the pictures don’t do this place justice. It is much nicer in person.

We stayed here 3 nights for my wife’s 30th birthday. We had friends and family come to stay and visit. All of them were impressed at the amazing home, the view, and amenities. We will be booking again in the future and I imagine so will some of our group.

The first night we had some trouble finding the rental. It was dark and the address doesn’t show up correct on google maps. So if possible, travel in day light.

Thanks Phil and Louise

Escellent location and facility. Tranquil, secluded setting with spectacular water views.

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely first-rate experience. The tranquil setting has magnificent views. The house is very well maintained and furnished. Very well-suited for a group, but also excellent for a couple. The hot tub is wonderfully situated. The sauna and pool table make the facility feel like a five star resort. Owner is very accommodating to special requests. We visit Tofino only at Christmas time, and appreciated the Christmas decorations in the house. Highly recommended.

The property was beautiful. Couldn’t have asked for s more serene place to spend my birthday.

  • 3 of 5

Although the property was beautiful, it was slightly disappointing that the sauna was not working, I was informed late into booking but not offered any conpensation. Also the floors were incredibly slippery, which I had picked up on from other reviews. We were careful all weekend but one of us ended up taking a huge spill and severely injuring her leg. Luckily x-rays confirmed nothing was broken, should really look into a fix for this problem. Out of the eight of us there, four slipped. Other than that the place was clean and spacious.

Owner's Response: We are pleased that you found our home suitable, but very disappointed that you had some difficulties. We did notify you in advance that the sauna needed repairs. Fortunately we were able to locate new heating elements and have them delivered promptly to Tofino. Our caretaker made the repairs and the sauna was working correctly before your stay. The miscommunication is unfortunate. You could have called us or our on site caretaker. We were all available to help during your stay. The slippery floor is a serious concern and we are monitoring it carefully. We stayed at the home for 3 nights after your stay to look after routine maintenance and to set up the Christmas decorations. The floor was clean and well maintained but we did not find it slippery. We will monitor this closely to ensure it is safe. We have also asked our current guests to be careful and to let us know if they find the floor slippery. We hope your friends are all well and that the leg injury is healing.

Great Location, Concrete Floors

  • 3 of 5

Large home with a lovely ocean view. Beachfront below the home is rocky, however Tofino has incredible public beach areas. Well equipped kitchen. Great location away from down town Tofino. As stated in other reviews, the entire home has concrete floors, they are heated, but you do need shoes on if you are prone to back or leg aches . 2 of our 6 guests slipped inside the home, and fell hard on the concrete. We encouraged the owner to provide non slip backing for the entry rugs. The hot tub is really nice, clean, the sauna did not provided much heat all and was a disappointment. When our message was received about the sauna not working it was acknowledged later in our stay, but the owner did offer to send someone to see to it. Happy hour at Long Beach Resort provided incredible storm watching, and fantastic beach walks.

Owner's Response: We do appreciate your review. Honest feedback is helpful as we continue to maintain our home and amenities. It is very unfortunate that 2 of your guests slipped on the floor. This is the first time in our 8 years with VRBO that this issue has been reported to us. Your suggestion regarding the rubber backed floor mats beside the doors is a good one. Unfortunately one of the sauna heating elements burned out during your stay, and the sauna did not heat up very well. Our apologies for the malfunction. We do feel that we responded very well to the problem. 1. We were available immediately by telephone when you called us. You did not need to leave a message. 2. We offered to have our on-site caretaker check the sauna that evening, but you indicated you were checking out early the next morning, and that the problem should be reviewed after you checked out. 3. Our care taker investigated the issue the next day, identified the problem, and promptly ordered new elements for the repair. We make every effort to be sure that all of our facilities are operating correctly, and when repairs are needed we try to act promptly and efficiently. We hope that the miscommunication regarding the sauna did not limit your enjoyment at our home.
