Owner info

Year Purchased: 1992

About the owner: 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. First theyu camped, then pulled 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 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 the coast. You may experience for yourself the reluctance of having to leave this spiritual spot, that Janet and Saint hope one day to retire to.

Why the Owner Chose Tofino, BC, Canada:
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 exploriung 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. With 2 homes on the property we can accommodate various group sizes, from a romantic couple or small family in the Cottage, or a larger group in the mainhouse, or a large family reunion, take both the Cottage and the Main house.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
2 homes that can suit your needs and size. The mainhouse that can sleep up to 6, or the Cottage that can sleep up to 4.
