About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 3 Baths

Located on spectacular west-facing Chesterman Beach with a mile-long sandy beach, glowing sunsets, and rolling waves at your doorstep. 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 pillow top king-size bed in the upper master with en suite bathroom and sliding doors to the oceanfront deck. 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!

Walking into Seascape we knew that we were in for a treat, but it actually took our breath away and our jaws dropped to the floor!!!!

The view from the entire front of the home was SPECTACULAR !!

We have stayed in many rental homes in Tofino, but Seascape has them all beat.

The view, layout, the attention to details i.e. coffee, sugar, tea,spices, plenty of kitchen equipment, rainy day activities books, dvds,cds,games,umbrellas, hot tub, beach towels, boogie boards,were extremely well thought out.

The beach is right in front of you. 2x's walks, on the beach,watched a whale for well over an hour right out the dining room window while we ate breakfast!

We were 3 couples who all felt blessed to have stayed in

this wonderful home.

If you can find an available date , book it.

You will not be disappointed!

We will be back, so fortunate to have been able to stay here.

Thank you again for allowing us the opportunity to stay at your home.

Beautiful views of surf and super child friendly

  • 5 of 5

Just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful Seascape. We had a wonderful time staying here. All the kids took turns sleeping in the "Tower", and made use of the free boogie boards almost every day in the Ocean which was just outside the doorstep. The rooms were clean, beds were comfortable, views from within were incredible. It would be hard to find a better place to stay around Tofino.

Extraordinary house -- beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

There’s not much that I can add to all the glowing reviews from those who have stayed before. They tell the truth – this property is spectacular! The pictures on the internet looked lovely enough, but there is nothing that can prepare you for how lovely the house is, how beautifully decorated, and how very clean it is. And the beach!!! We were content to just be … and look at water – from outside our bedroom, outside the dining room window, outside the living room window, and my favourite room of all – the charming den, with windows all around, lots of light, and an unobstructed view of the ocean and the busy beach (great for people and dog watching). There is a desk in the den and that’s where I set up my laptop, but mostly I just looked out the window. Also, the den has the strongest cell phone signal in the house. Cell signal in Tofino is not always consistent, but who cares?

The kitchen provided everything except groceries that you would need to eat “at home”, thereby cutting some costs. The Co-Op in Tofino is pretty good – good selection and decent prices.

The hot tub is not a huge one (3-people), but it is a little bit of paradise on the corner of the deck. We spent lovely time there watching the surfers. The deck has outdoor furniture and a bbq. Alas, it was usually too rainy, too windy, or too cold to use it.

Speaking of rain and wind, we arrived at the beginning of a fabulous two and a half day storm which was amazing to watch. That’s really why we booked, hoping to see a wild West Coast storm. We were not disappointed. And by the end of the week, the weather transitioned to sunshine and blue skies. That’s Tofino.

Maret, the owner, is fabulous to deal with. She responds very quickly and I enjoyed our interactions.

I can’t say enough about this property. It’s amazing, and I wholeheartedly recommend it. Thank you, Maret and Lyle for providing this piece of heaven. I would return in a heartbeat.

It was so nice to just walk out the door and be on the beach. The hot tub was a little small for a house that size but we worked it out. The kitchen was nicely supplied with all the necessities. Highly recommended :)

Amazing even in a storm

  • 5 of 5

We anticipated the weather to be stormy for the time that we were there and were cautious on the drive up. Upon arriving the view from the dining room took my breath away! The house was way bigger than I expected. With a large open kitchen, dining room and living room where you could look out at the ocean. Watching the waves and the brave surfers was a highlight! Point being, even in stormy weather the view and this property is incredible so don't let that deter you, and storm watching is really neat!

Meters from the beach we walked along the shoreline-make sure you bring a rain jacket. I was super impressed and happy to find gum boots in the garage that we could borrow! :) very handy.

I had a room downstairs which felt like my own suite. Beautiful rock fireplace and big windows and besy of all, the bed was sooo comfy. Really nice pillows, super comfortable bed which I was very grateful for.

There are 3 bedrooms and a really neat little office area which could also sleep a couple people so there is plenty of space in this giant house. Did I mention it is also immaculate?! Super clean. 3 bathrooms. Washer/dryer. Feels secluded but it's only a few minute drive down the road before you hit restaurants and stores.

I highly recommend and would return in a heartbeat!!

Kritur and company

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful 4 day getaway and reunion with family and friends. The house was perfect! On the beach it allowed us ready access for leisurely strolls, playing in the surf and an evening bonfire. The house was well equipped, comfortable and relaxing. We brought all we needed to make a thanksgiving meal with all the fixings but it was unnecessary. All we needed was there including a stockpot for soup. A wonderful spot for memory making!
