About Paul Newman
My wife and I have two daughters and we live in Richmond, B.C.
Paul Newman purchased this Townhome in 2007
Why Paul Newman chose Tofino
We began visiting Tofino when a good friend moved there with his family to become a fishing guide. Over the years we visited them and came to enjoy the secluded tranquility of Tofino as well as the many outdoor activities that it had to offer. When we started a family of our own and the opportunity to purchase this unit presented itself, we jumped at it. Over the years it has become a second home to our family. It's a wonderful place to get away from the everyday stresses of life and to lose yourself in nature. Our children have grown up knowing our 'Tofino home' is a place to enjoy the outdoors while exploring the beaches, fishing, prawning, and surfing at Chesterman Beach.
Short stay in Tofino
Good location on the edge of the main part of town, easy walking distance to the restaurants and local services. The property is directly on the water with fantastic views and a private wildlife screening with eagles, otters and a variety of birds from the deck and windows. The property was as advertised and would have been a good choice for a longer stay to actually utilize the kitchen and grill. The king bed in the main room was very comfortable and there were plenty of towels, blankets, pillows, etc. The property was clean, albeit a little dusty in some of the harder to reach areas. The washer and dryer came in handy as we arrived most of the way into a longer trip and were happy to be able to wash our clothes before repacking for the trip home. The basics were provided in the kitchen and bathrooms so it kept us from having to shop for necessities for our short stay. We were two couples who did inquire about having the twin beds set up as a king and were told it was an option, but the beds were still set up as twins upon our arrival. It's possible there was another set of king sheets someplace but we didnt bother rifling through the closets to find any. The beds were moved together and served their purpose but didn't get the rave reviews of comfort that the king bed in the master received. The communication from the owner was quick and to the point. When I made initial inquiries and on check-in day when I realized I was never provided instructions for access, he responded quickly with the necessary information.
Overall, the property was a good choice and met our needs. With a few minor improvements and updates, it could certainly earn a 5th star.
Weekend in Tofino
This was the perfect place for a relaxing weekend away with family. I'm visiting BC from the UK and this was my first visit to Tofino - it didn't disappoint! The accommodation was fantastic too and exactly as it was described. The condo had all facilities as well as superb views from the deck and living room. It was a short walk into town and was extremely comfortable. I will definately recommend. First class!
Wonderful place to stay
Stayed in Tofino for 2 nights. The accommodations were everything we expected. Spacious ,clean and comfortable. Everything we needed was there for us to use to make our stay comfortable. Even though it was raining we enjoyed the view of the activities on the water front when we were in.
We would definitely stay there again. Thank you.
Spacious, Comfortable, Conveniently Located and a Great View
My wife and I stayed here in early September. We really appreciated the great location. We highly recommend that you consider staying here on your visit to Tofino.
Pros: Great location, spacious accommodations, well supplied kitchen, unmatched views of the bay, quiet neighborhood.
Cons: Cleaning and maintenance could have been better. When we arrived there was a load of towels and bedding left in the dryer. There were burned out lights in the second bedroom and the upstairs hallway. There was no body soap or shampoo in the main bathroom, only hand soap. The main cleanup issue for us was the condition of the free-standing circulating fan in the master bedroom. The protective cage and the fan blades were covered with a deep coating of old dust and grime. This fan had not been cleaned in a long time.
Bottom Line: This is a very desirable place to stay in Tofino and you should consider it when your travels take you there. A little more attention to cleaning and maintenance details would have easily earned the home a five star rating.
Condo was spacious, clean and on the water. Great location! easy and interesting walk to town. Amazing restaurant across the street.... enjoyed our stay.
Beautiful property and views! Highly Recommend.
Our family of 4 really enjoyed our stay in Tofino. Your town home was so comfortable and clean with exquisite views. Nice linens, comfortable beds, and overall very well appointed. The pictures don't do it full justice. We loved sitting on the deck watching the birds and boats in the harbor. Nice to have a grill too for fresh seafood dinner. Perfect location for walking into town as well with beaches a close drive away.
