About Julie Hughes or Brian Buckle

Brian, born in Tofino in the 60s has had the opportunity to live on a few of the many great beaches here in Tofino such as Combers and Chestermans. Julie, arriving in Tofino in the early 90s for a short stay just loved the ocean, beaches and wilderness so much she never left.

Julie Hughes or Brian Buckle purchased this cabin in 2003

Why Julie Hughes or Brian Buckle chose Vancouver Island

We purchased this property because it is very close to Chestermans Beach, one of our favourite beaches but also because of the wonderful large cedar trees and lots of thick Solal to create a beautiful, serene home and still be able to hear the surf.

What makes this cabin unique

This 2 bedroom cabin is where Brian and I lived when we first bought this property in 2003. We finished the renovations on it in februaury of 2015 after moving into our newly built home in 2013.

The things we miss most about this lovely little cabin is the beautiful, sunny deck.

A lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This rental was very clean and comfortable. It was roomy with a well stocked kitchen. The deck, bar-b-que and hot tub were great, we could sit in the hot tub and watch the stars come out. Julie was very easy to get in touch with, promptly answering our texts. It is very close to the beach, maybe 6 minutes!

Perfect haven

  • 4 of 5

A great getaway spot, nicely equipped and after a day in the surf, the hot tub was a welcomed treat. Should my feet get to Tofino again, definitely would stay here again!

Okay, but not what we were expecting from the description

  • 3 of 5

It was clean, but we thought we were renting a cabin and it was a remodeled mobile home (trailer) with an addition. The hot tub was nice.

Fantastic getaway

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I stayed there with our pup and found it a perfect location for beach walks, hikes, surfing, and adventuring. It was also close enough to town that she was able to work when needed. Thanks so much, we will definitely come back!

Perfect for our family

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was clean and quiet and is great for a family. The high chair and playpen/crib, as well as washer/dryer were ideal for us. We enjoyed an evening dip in the hot tub under a magical snowfall. Overall a great value in our opinion, especially given proximity to the beach (short walk down the road). We'd definitely stay again.

The Pointe @ wicks inning Inn

The abalone inn is located within minutes to pacific rim national park which starts at the end of cox bay, another amazing beach within a 10 minute walk from us. We are within a 5 minute walk to south chestermans beach which is perfect for surfers and outdoor enthusiasts. Long beach which is located in the park is within a 10 minute drive. We are also very close to a hike that will take you to the inlet which has a completely different look and feel than the beach side.

Tofino info center is located within a minute drive from us and is a great source for things to do and see.
