Guestbook comments from the manager

We really enjoyed our stay at the Dunes - a long way from our home in the Netherlands, Europe. A wonderful, cosy house in a beautiful surrounding. A great way to combine family visit in Vancouver with holiday.

Thank you for the great experience, you fulfilled your promise in the internet ad.

Home away from home in Tofino

The Dunes Cabin was a fantastic home base for our visit to Tofino. The house was well equipped and felt very secluded. Thanks!

Very nice

  • 4 of 5

This house is in a good location near Chesterman Beach. The kitchen is well equipped and the deck and hot tub are a plus. Bedrooms are a bit odd with no windows in one except the door window and no closet. Other bedroom is very small. There is only one bathroom but it is large.

Owners are responsive and the place was clean.

Amazing cabin with excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just spent our honeymoon in Tofino at the Dunes Cabin. The place is spacious and cozy at the same time. We loved the short walk to Chesterman beach, hot tub for nights and rainy days, excellent natural lighting, and well-designed kitchen. We will definitely be back!

My stay at the Dunes was wonderful! The home was very private and the location was perfect..Good friends ,good food and drinks, and the beach is calming. We had great weather for both storm watching and walking the beach. The home is tastefully decorated(very west coast)..and spotless. We will be back same time next year.Cheers!

I recommend the Dunes to everyone who loves a bit of luxury in the wilderness

  • 5 of 5

My stay at the Dunes was one of the most memorable surf trips of the last year, a mini "mancation" with a couple of buddies for a few days in January. The accommodation was the stand out part of our trip and the hub of our pre and post surf fun. The back deck and hot tub were amazing! Totally private. Fire up the barbie, make yourself a gourmet coffee. Close enough to hear the waves but not be pummeled by non stop wind. The Dunes is the perfect spot and the place is set up to a super high standard. Love it!

Put this location on your bucket list

We had a great time retreating from real life responsibilities for a few days. We really enjoyed your home and hot tub especially! The location was perfect for us to surf every day and enjoy the beautiful weather that we were most lucky with. We felt like we were in the forest with all the greenery and birds, Perfection!

Cheers to a great holiday, we'll be back soon!
