About the Property
3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6
The three bedroom, two bathroom suite, large living room, dining room, with hand adzed beams, wood-burning fireplace, and sundeck create an ambiance not replicated in other Tofino homes. There is a king sized bed in the master bedroom with adjacent three piece en-suite, queen bedroom with completely new shower en-suite, and twin bedroom with extra long twin beds. The living area is spacious enough for games, the fireplace, and flat screen TV. The dining room table has space for 8 comfortably. A large south facing sundeck wraps around the three bedrooms, overlooking Tonquin Beach. At the main entrance, there is a small covered deck with large barb-b-que.
Following the steps down to the beach on a short trail, there is a beautiful pocket sandy beach, perfect for sunsets, outdoor beach games or a hot dog roast. A long beach walk can be enjoyed from the private beach to Tonquin Beach and beyond at low tide. Tonquin Beach is a hidden treasure, with cultural history, scenic coves, and a natural freshwater pool perfect for young children to enjoy. We also have a trampoline on the property that is available with supervision ! For those interested in fishing, you can fish right off the rocks in front of the house at high tide !
If you prefer, you can walk the 1 km. road into town to enjoy an evening meal or go shopping.
We have boogy boards available to borrow at no extra cost! Enjoy the simple Tofino experience of surfing, fishing, and hiking and eating at the best restaurants on Vancouver Island ! We will provide all the information you need to make your experience here memorable!

Tofino is a beautiful small town on the west coast of Vancouver Island. It is known as the Surf Capital of Canada, with the average age of 34! Tofino is in the midst of the Clayoquot Biosphere Reserve, a world -reknowned UNESCO designation. There are less than 600 Biosphere Reserves in the world and 16 are located in Canada. Tofino is adjacent to the Pacific Rim National Park, Provincial Parks, Tribal Parks, and in a World reknowned shorebird flyway. Tonquin Beach, a municipal park is adjacent to the house. The Tonquin Trail is at the top of the driveway, 2 kilometer trail, with spectacular views over the Clayoquot Sound Biosphere, and the wreck of the Tonquin ( 45 min. round trip). At low tides, Tonquin Beach is the best beach in the area for tidal pool viewing. Whales, eagles, and fish abound and may be seen from the sundeck or beach in the spring and summer. Tofino is the best place to learn to surf in Canada ! There are many stores providing lessons, with Surf Sister generally thought to be the best. Whale watching or bear watching by boat is also an option, with Remote Passages offering family packages. Sobo restaurant, only 1 km. away offers very healthy food at affordable prices ( child friendly menu), and the best margaritas in Canada! There is bear watching, sport fishing, hiking, beaches galore, stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, and culinary delights in this small jewel of a town.
Year Purchased: 1989
About the owner: We bought our house in 1989, and began doing Bed and Breakfast in Tofino in 1990, as one of only 5 homes to do so. In 1998 we converted the main floor of the large house into a private vacation rental suite, allowing guests to share our experience of living 'on the beach'. My husband works at the hospital in Tofino, as a physician, and I serve on the District of Tofino Council, Tonquin Trail Committee, and the Clayoquot Biosphere Trust.
Why the Owner Chose Tofino, BC, Canada:
We chose this property for its 1.3 acre south and west facing beachfront, and its proximity to town and the local hospital! It is a very unique property, with two beaches, hiking trail, great kayaking, 'supping' opportunities, whale watching, breath-taking sunsets, and the best low tide viewing on the Tofino coastline. You can even surf on Tonquin Beach in the winter! The sunsets here are sublime!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Beach walking, Tonquin Trail through old growth rainforest and sandy beaches, SUP-ing, kayaking, fishing from beach ( June to September ), whale watching from the beach in front, surfing, storm-watching, trampoline on property, and to finish- Tofino has many Canadian culinary delights ! ( Sobo, Tacofino and Shelter are our favourites!)
