This beautiful home features 2000 square feet of comfortable living with natural, cedar beams and floor-to-ceiling windows capturing the rugged seascape. Climb to the third floor 'lookout' and view the surf from the 360-degree view and bay window with built-in desk.

The house features three spacious bedrooms, three bathrooms, and an expansive, open plan living/dining/kitchen area. There are two wood-burning fireplaces with firewood, skylights, stain-glass windows, hard wood floors, HOT TUB, large wrap-around deck to watch the sunsets while you BBQ dinner, washer/dryer, fully-equipped deluxe country kitchen with stainless steel appliances, quartz counter tops, four TVs with full cable, DVD,CD/stereo, ipod deck, and Wireless Internet. The glow of candles enhance every room.

There is a queen-size bed and a double-size sofa bed in the lower-level spacious master bedroom with rock fireplace and large bay window with skylights. Twin beds are in the third bedroom with a sliding door to a private patio area. A queen size sofa bed is in the living room by the fireplace. A single bed futon is available in the upstairs den/lookout. Please note that the sofa beds and futon are best suited for children.

Just put your feet up and soothe your soul in this comfortable, spacious home, and unwind to the sound and vision of the surf while the fireplace crackles and you leaf through the many reference books available for your leisure. Walk to the Wickininish Inn for fine dining or a massage, explore the sea caves full of sea life at low tide, cycle to Tofino along the village bike trail, visit the botanical gardens, museums, hike the many scenic trails and rain forests, visit the hot springs, view the wildlife or go on a variety of whale-watching expeditions. There is so much to see and do!

Any time of year is the right time. From the fall/winter storm watch with ten-foot waves, to the spring whale migrations, to the long hot summer days on the sandy beach with campfires at night under shooting stars. For a bit of heaven on earth - this is it!

Charming, comfy getaway at Seascape

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful visit to Seascape in late October early November. The weather played a major factor as it was warm and sunny for our whole stay so we spent a lot of time wandering the beach and boogie boarding. Nice to have the outdoor shower and garage to hang wet suits. It was just two of us and our two Bernese and they loved the beach! Chesterman is doggie heaven. The green space right outside the garage door for the dogs to have a late night bathroom break was great. The house is very spacious, comfortable and clean. Very clean The kitchen is ridiculously well stocked with everything a cook could wish for. The beds are comfy. Everything was great from the throws on the recliners, puzzles and books, towels and beach toys. There's even a couple of indoor plants! Very much a homelike atmosphere. The hot tub was wonderful after being in the ocean and we used a bucket of water to rinse our feet prior to getting in. Pine needles are an issue. The breaker for the hot tub blew a few times and that's perhaps why it's so well marked in the electrical panel. We enjoyed incredibly colorful sunsets whilst having sundowners at the beach. The view is spectacular. We loved it so much we've booked it for next year.

Absolutely fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Chesterman beach is the perfect place for a real vacation for all ages. There's nothing better then waking up to the sound of the ocean out your bedroom door. The kids have an ever changing playground steps away. The house itself is clean, comfortable and well appointed. We wouldn't hesitate to return...if there is availability, book early!

Wonderful week at Seascape

  • 5 of 5

We go to Chesterman almost every year and Seascape is definitely one of the the best places we have stayed. The location on North Chesterman is ideal and the view from the dining room and deck make it very pleasant to sit and enjoy the view and the sea air, whatever the weather. The layout of the house is ideal for multi generational families or groups of friends getting together and the soundproofing between rooms is amazing.

Beach access is easy and what a great idea to access the beach through the garage. You can leave your wet and sandy gear outside, or in the garage, to keep the sand out of the house. The outside hot shower is wonderful. There is nothing nicer than coming in from the waves to a hot shower rather than hosing off with cold water as you try to peel off your wet suit.

We admired the beautiful stained glass window every time we went up and down the stairs. It is one of the nicest pieces of stained glass I have seen, very west coast and done by the same local artist who did the lamp shade in the living room.

We had a very west coast week with fog every day (they don't call it Faugust for no reason) but the week was wonderful anyway. Thank you very much for sharing your lovely house. We all enjoyed it very much and we will be back.

Wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Wholehearted second the review by Anonymous! We visited Seascape for five days, meeting up with our 3 grown children and their partners to enjoy some time together. The location on the beach was absolutely perfect and the view absolutely exceptional. The 'kids' rented SUPs and surfboards and had a blast. The kitchen was well equipped for preparing family meals and the home is well laid out to accommodate 6 adults. The fourth couple used the pullout couch in the living room which worked OK.

There was a generous supply of firewood which allowed use to enjoy livingroom fireplace as well as fires on the beach. Good supply of beach chairs, towels and boogie boards were definitely appreciated.

We would love to come back! Thank you for sharing your bit of heaven with us.
