Tofino Dream Cottage is a stunning example of contemporary West Coast architecture. This timber-framed, bright spacious home is located in the midst of its own half-acre professionally landscaped gardens. It is private, yet only a 3 minute walk down a sandy path is spectacular Chesterman Beach. Surfing, beachcombing and close proximity to surf rentals, an array of neighbourhood shops restaurants, cafes, and the village of Tofino. Here is accommodation that offers it all. Tofino Dream Cottage will be enjoyed by everyone: It is a wonderful place for couples seeking a romantic retreat. It is a superb place for a group getaway. It is a perfect family home for adults and children.

We built this beautiful westcoast vacation home by the sea for family, friends and the many visiting guests who come to celebrate this spectacular location. The cottage harmonizes a nice flow between outdoor and indoor living spaces. The outdoor hot tub and expansive multi-level decks surround the home and reach out to the forest edge. Manicured gardens, total privacy, dramatic forest landscape and the beach nearby, make Dream Cottage the perfect getaway retreat..

We hope you choose Dream Cottage for your getaway and that you become one of our many returning guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This place is up in the top ranks for best luxury stay in the area although for what you get and the amount of guests possible, it’s quite affordable for a week. In the Summer months when the demand is high you’re looking at just about $3500 for Saturday to Saturday. The Tofino Dream Cottage is close to the beach, surrounded by beautiful dense rain forest and is an ideal vacation spot for a getaway with the family or a great group of friends! This home has all the luxurious features and the kitchen was amazing..I literally cooked up a storm every night we were there. I loved the hot tub on the wrap around cedar deck and the wifi made working a little easy.

Beautiful, comfortable house in great location

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful spacious and bright house with comfortable furniture and beds. Quiet private location near Chesterman beach. We walked the sandy trail to the beach every morning as soon as we got up, just a few minutes walk. 5 minutes drive from Tofino. We liked the gas fire place in the evening.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the positive review! We are pleased you found it warm and comfortable. We take pride in the feature fireplace. It was a labour of love building it from rock that came all the way from the Colorado River. We hope to see you visit Dream Cottage in the future.

A beautiful retreat!

  • 4 of 5

Just what our family needed...unstructured time together! The Dream Cottage is well appointed, clean and centrally located to all of the beaches & hiking trails for one to explore plus Tofino and all of its quaint charm is just 10 minutes down the road. We plan to be back!

Beautiful Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Tofino Dream Cottage! My husband and I and our two young boys (and lab pup) stayed here with my in-laws who had never visited Tofino before. The cottage was bright and light with so many windows but still cozy with the huge fireplace and great decor. We loved the deck that wrapped around the cottage and the landscaping was beautiful. We had lots of space for all of us and all the beds were super comfortable. The location is good with a short walk to what we think is the best beach in Tofino and also a quick walk to the Tacofino truck. We will definitely stay here again!
