About Peter & Clarice Maltby

Why we chose the West Coast of Vancouver Island:

35 years ago when our children were young we decided to venture to the west coast of Vancouver Island to enjoy the Pacific Rim National Park, the ocean wildlife, and rain forest. We camped for an extended period of time and fell in love with our surroundings. We meandered through life venturing to many other parts of the world, but to this day the west coast of Vancouver Island is our favorite. In 1999 we bought this property between Tofino and Ucluelet on an inlet where we could enjoy nature, weather and our own peace and solitude. Since that time we have renewed the property and made it into a duplex where, we along with our son's family, can share / pass time in this beautiful pristine setting.

Why Peter & Clarice Maltby chose Vancouver Island

The Unique benefits of this home:

We have enjoyed the beauty of the inlet and the surrounding mountains, rain forest, scenery, hiking trails, proximity to Tofino and Ucluelet, sand and surf, and the peace this environment brings. You can sit on the deck and watch the birds around you, enjoy the winter storms, and travel the many trails in this wonderful part of the west coast. There is no place like it. Inside it’s warm and cosy with all the necessities for comfortable living, even so far as plumbing on all floors. One can enjoy the winter storms from the warm protected environment of “the Inlet”. It is rare that we have an opportunity to experience nature in such a magnificent way.

What makes this cottage unique

Other Possibilities:

When our two families decided to convert the original house into a duplex, we saw the potential to bring family and friends together in one place. Two families or close-knit groups could come together and enjoy the wonder of this place. Time seems to stand still, no pressures from normal, every day stress. It is a different kind of “lost world”. One you will want to experience.

Simply perfect

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this rental was perfect! The location was a great jumping off point for everything the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve and Ucluelet/Tofino have to offer. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you would need for meal prep. The beds were comfortable, and the linens and towels were in great shape. The house itself is stunning, with a great layout. We plan on returning one day.

Lovely property with a beautiful view.

  • 5 of 5

The property was very well maintained and the beds very comfortable. The view from the lounge room is beautiful , framed by large windows. There is a spacious deck overlooking the water which would be good for bbq's in summer.The kitchen has good quality appliances and is well equiped.This property would suit 2 couples travelling together or a family. The property is a short drive to the shopping centre and restaurants and an approximately 20 minute drive to Tofino. The owners son was staying in the duplex next door with his family and was very helpful . I would definately recommend this property.

Lovely home in a beautiful area!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely house with a great view in a beautiful area. Our family (mom, dad, and two college student sons) had a wonderful time here hiking and visiting the beaches during the day and relaxing at home in the evenings. We cooked in some nights (grilling and cooking in the well stocked kitchen) and went out on other nights (we especially enjoyed Hanks). Highly recommended!

Heaven on the West coast of Vancouver Island

  • 5 of 5

Look at the pictures, they are worth a thousand words. Peaceful, serene and perfect for two couples traveling together. Would definitely lease the property again if we are ever in this part of Vancouver Island again.

Ecluelet has some amazing eateries, explore and ask the locals. The Pacific Rim National Park is a treasure and takes a week to explore at a leisurely pace. Start at the visitor center in the park, informative and the nature talks by park service personnel are educational and fun.

Although not advertised as being available (kayaks, canoe or bikes) if you are an avid kayaker, biker or surfer (as were are) and enjoy being on the water, the inlet is worth exploring. This property would be absolutely heaven if some of the mentioned additional amenities (kayak, canoe or bikes) would be available for guests.

Wife worked fine. I did have to call Peter for the password and he was quick to respond. We loved the home!
