Property description

The loft is like a Raven's Nest in nature. The Raven's cry from it's nest can be heard for miles, though its very unlikely one would ever find it. The Loft is a place like this, where you can stay in the abundance of nature that is Tofino, though invisible as you want to be. The Loft is your retreat, whether your plan is to write, paint, or rest and rejuvenate, it's a perfect nest.

The 20’ floor to ceiling windows are a portal into the elemental beauty of Clayoquot Sound. The vista to the west looks to Vargas Island and the most amazing sunsets you can imagine, then looking North, you see the white crested peaks of Vancouver Island's Coastal Mountains.

Wake with the dawn as the light filters into loft. As the day awakens, sense your energy inspired by the landscape of the rugged West Coast. Watch nature come alive as dawns light breaks over shades of green flora and fauna and the oceans turbulence forces the ranging shades of blue.

Sitting on the balcony as the day unfolds is a pallet of colour, movement and energy. Eagles, gulls, sea otters, seals are just some of what you can see from the loft overlooking the harbour front seaside.

The loft is tastefully West Coast, appointed by JC Scott Eco-Design and is accented by Northwest Coast First Nations art. The centerpiece which is a 19' red Cedar totem. The living room fireplace, the natural wood finishes, and comfortable furnishings create a mood for quiet contemplation.

The loft has everything you need to make your vacation a special time in Tofino.

Located on Main Street in downtown Tofino, everything is local and within walking distance. Staying in to preparing a special meal from the freshest of ingredients that await you on the doorstep of Clayoquot. This 5 star property provides a gourmet kitchen with Miele appliances including stove, oven, washer, dryer, dishwasher, Sub-Zero fridge, wine cooler, microwave, and garborater. The kitchen has all you need to prepare a gourmet meal.

If you prefer dining out in Tofino's mecca of hotspots, a five minute stroll you can be at Kuma, Schooner, Shelter, SoBo or Wolf in the Fog.

It's the Centre of Town, on the Edge of the WORLD - Raven's Nest at the SHORE

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: A contemporary space with a collection of Northwest Pacific Art from First Nations and other local artists.

Why the Owner Chose Tofino, BC, Canada:
Tofino is a natural wonder on the West Coast of Vancouver Island. It has its own unique charm as it has transitioned from a sleepy resource based town of forestry and fishing to what is today: a bohemian surf hangout and culinary mecca. Having a place here allows me to connect to nature and continue to be inspired by the art I've collected. Longer stays allow for time to rest and rejuvenate. Tofino has a range of amenities for those that want to be doing; whale watching, Hot Spring Tours, Cougar Annie’s Garden, fishing, surfing, hiking, beachcombing. For those that are less inclined and just want to be; Tofino is great for this as well.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Tofino sits on the Edge of the World and looks out upon the open Pacific from one side and into the mysteries of Clayoquot Sound from the other. Like Tofino, the Raven's Nest is an elemental portal into Natures tapestry, a place to view the ever changing panorama of Clayoquout from the luxury of a space of understated elegance.
