  • Beautiful property in the Town of Tofino

    "We have been to Tofino many times and have always stayed on the beach. We wanted to see what it was like to stay in town and this is the first time we have done so. Lucky for us as this was a great place to stay. We arrived a bit late the first evening because, although we live in Victoria, we had flown in from a weekend in Alberta and our plane had been delayed. This was no problem for Tom and Christine, and they were very accommodating. When we woke up the next morning, the views from the condo of Meares Island and Clayoquot (a protected Unesco site) were breathtaking. Eagles flew over our patio every day. The comings and goings of fishing trawlers, excursion boats and float planes were better than watching t.v. And speaking of t.v., although there isn't one in this condo, you won't miss it at all. There is too much to do and see in Tofino to bother with t.v. I took our teenage daughter to Mermaid Tales, the amazing local bookstore, and she read the whole time we were there (when she wasn't surfing or shopping in one of the cute local shops). The condo itself was lovely and the photos almost don't do it justice. And yes, you can lay in bed and enjoy the view - a real treat. We love to cook, and the kitchen and barbecue exceeded what you find in most vacation rentals.The only hitch for us was that the wifi didn't work well but Tom is aware of that and I'm sure it will be rectified (as best it can, as Tofino in general does not have good wifi). This is the only reason I didn't give the property 5 stars. I would certainly recommend this vacation rental."

  • The property was perfect! We were very comfortable and could not have asked more!

    "The listing for the Hillcrest House was right on! When we arrived the outside looked exactly like the photo's. We loved the wrap around deck and the perfect spot for Willie. The inside was also exactly like the photo's! We were so happy and excited to have found such a perfect house. The house was very clean and very well maintained. We were lucky to have almost two owners. After the we booked the house it was sold to a new owner. Both the new and old took great care of us and we feel that we have made so really special new friends. I would recommend this to my friends and in fact have! We are planning on returning next year and can't wait. The location is perfect. In the mornings we would walk to Starbucks (800 steps) with our dog Willie. In the afternoon we could walk to the bottom of the hill and we were right on the water where we could walk into the inner harbor for lunch, dinner, shopping and people watching or have a lovely dinner and a brew at Spinnakers at the bottom of the hill. There are so many spots we loved it hard to name them all. Try the dinning room in the Parliament Building. You will need a reservation. We also found a wonderful restaurant called Zambri's on Yates Street. It's a nice walk from the bottom of the hill ask for Jessica! She is lovely. We also enjoyed the winery Church and State and Uusworth and their great little restaurants. (Make a reservation) You won't be disappointed if you stay in any of the three suites at Hillcrest House and I know you will enjoy the new owner Kathy!"

  • Great Stay!

    "We stayed at John's apartment for 4 nights and everything was excellent! John answered our questions and was kind enough to let us check in early on our arrival day. The place was clean and comfortable and the location was amazing! We walked everywhere until the last day when we rented a car to drive to East Sooke park for a wonderful hike. The parkade across the street was convenient and there was no charge to leave the car there over night. Highly recommended!"

  • Surpassed our expectations!

    "In so many ways, Serenity By The Sea exceeded our expectations. The location is perfect, walking distance to everything, and water taxis available of a quick trip across the harbor. The condo is perfect. So comfortable and well appointed. We lacked nothing. And the views! Somehow our glasses of wine tasted so much better here! How can you not love a private rooftop patio? We fell in love with Victoria, and I'm sure Serenity By The Sea played a big part. Chidakash and Francis were amazing, making sure everything went so smoothly for us. They didn't miss beat! We highly recommend Serenity By The Sea to anyone visiting Victoria. But please don't take our week! Patty and Jim Scottsdale, AZ"
