About St Clair McColl
The Story of Chahayis. Janet and Saint, visited this piece of paradise as early teenagers. When they got married with kids they decided it was a good idea to expose their kids to the invigorating environment of Clayoquot. After staying in a couple of B&B's they decided to buy some dirt. Chahayis was Born! First they camped, then pulled up a travel trailer, then they started to build. Saint spent a summer working as a seaplane pilot in Tofino, while he supervised the construction, ensuring Chahayis and the home he was building reflected the westcoast environment. Although their 3 sons have now grown into their 20's and 30's, they all spend as much time as they can revitalizing themselves on at Chahayis. You may experience for yourself the reluctance of having to leave this spiritual spot, that Janet and Saint hope one day to retire to.
St Clair McColl purchased this House in 1992
Why St Clair McColl chose Tofino
Chahayis, is unique in that its architectural features reflect so soundly the Clayouqout environment. It is situated on the south part of Chesteman Beach, which offers a benign environment to the beginner surfer, or boogie boarder. We are in close proximity to the rocky head lands of Rosie Bay which afford you of hours of exploring the tidal pools, caves, blow wholes, and tunnels to Cox Bay. Or you can venture for a 40 minute stoll along the beach to the world renown Relais Chateaux Wickinninnish Beach resort for a cocktail or a steam and a massage in their Cedar Spa. Our home on the property can accommodate various group sizes, from a romantic couple, small family, or a large family reunion.

Family & friends fun on a fantastic beach. Gorgeous surf, beach fires, too much fun to list!
What a great time had by all. This is a special place. Rustic but homey, amazing view. Chesterman beach is fantastic! We met many visitors from around the world. Gorgeous sunsets, beach fires with s’mores, boogie boarding and beach combing. This house and cottage has everything you need. We had a party of 6 and everything was terrific. Rustic cottage style home & cabin made us feel like we were miles away from everything.
Fabulous girl’s surfing weekend.
This property is fully kitted out and in an amazing location! We loved the views, the ambience and would go back again and again! Great stay...nothing lacking.
A million dollars view!
Just returned from an 8-night stay at Ch-ahayis main house and it was everything and more. Very comfortable for everyone, well sound proofed & cleaned, lovely fireplace, very comfortable beds, and living room was a great place for us all to sit back and relax to a movie or board game. The washing machine was definitely a bonus!
And what a view of the ocean and Chesterman Beach! The location is perfect for long walks on the beach without having to take the car.....The property is as advertised.
All in all I would definitely recommend Ch-ahayis. By far my best stay in Tofino and we are already planning to go back.
Best Get-a-way ever!
My husband and I spent 6 days at the main house the end of May. Friends joined us and we had the best time exploring Tofino for the second time. The house was more than we expected! It is so well appointed and best of all just steps from the beach. The home was spotless, including the kitchen drawers which had everything needed to cook everything we wanted to cook. The caretakers, which are next door, were so helpful and fun. I can't imagine anyone could find anything to complain about with this well tended home!

Our party of 5 celebrated a memorable birthday week at this very accommodating beach house. Perfect location well appointed kitchen ideal for 5 "foodies "who love to cook and gather around the kitchen.
It was the first time to Tofino for our friends from Ottawa who were enthralled as we were by the beachfront and the ocean. The main house was ideal for the easy relaxed visit we had hoped for. Looking forward to making this an annual event.
