It's a museum space where I am collecting pieces of Northwest Pacific First Nations art.

Tom Olsen purchased this condo in 2010

Tofino is a natural wonder on the West Coast of Vancouver Island. It has its own unique charm as it has transitioned from a sleepy resource based town of forestry and fishing to what is today: a bohemian surf hangout boasting some of the best cuisine, accommodations and amenities on Vancouver Island. Having a place here gives me more options for longer stays when I require the time to rejuvenate.

Tofino has a range of amenities for those that want to be doing; whale watching, Hot Spring Tours, Cougar Annie’s Garden, fishing, surfing, hiking, beachcombing and for those that are less inclined and just want to be; Tofino is great for this as well. Tofino sits on the Edge of the World and looks out upon the open Pacific from one side and into the mysteries of Clayoquot Sound from the other side of the peninsula. It is a elemental portal into Natures tapestry.

Our stay at the Shores loft exceeded our expectations in every way. We were delighted with the transaction, amenities, & especially the fantastic location & breathtaking view. We whale watched, chartered a float plane, enjoyed massages & fantastic dining ALL walking distance away. So much to do & our teen daughter says her time there was magical. I will recommend this location to family & friends and look forward to returning again soon.

Great place for a getaway close to Seattle.

My husband and I had a lovely time staying at this artist's loft in Tofino. The space was beautifully appointed with local art work. It's proximity to everything in town made it within walking distance to restaurant's, art galleries, tour groups, groceries, etc. The kitchen had the essentials for light meals so we ate in for breakfast most days and explored the local scene for mid-day meals/dinner. Special recommendation for Sobo Resaturant (casual). Or, if you have a car and want to get out of town for more upscale fare, try The Point at Wickaninish Inn.

No TV, so we enjoyed sunsets from the deck, did a lot of reading, or watched Netflix from the laptop. All in all it was a very relaxing vacation. We would definitely stay there again.

Perfect honeymoon spot!!!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I absolutley loved staying at this place. Walking into the unit was an experience in itself. The decor is very upscale and yet it still felt like i could be at home. We moved right in, unpacked our bags and stared out the window over the harbour. We could see eagles flying and boats coming in and out of the docks. We even saw a sea lion following a fishing boat trying to get some free fish :) I had picked this unit after searching hard through the VRBO website for the best place to take my wife on our honeymoon and it was better than the reviews. There was a pro surf competition at the beach for a couple days. There was a pretty exclusive party being hosted in a building not far from the unit so the owner went out of his way to buy us tickets so we could attend the event. We felt very taken care of.
All of the practical things are here. Great appliances, good decor and a fantastic location. We could walk anywhere in Tofino easily. It was a short drive to the beach each day if we wanted to go. Sometimes we found it more relaxing to be around the apartment it was so nice.
One of our favourite parts was the chance to watch a beautiful sunset each night off of our balcony.

Perfect Tofino vacation spot.

From start to finish, the booking process and check in was easy and went smoothly. We found the unit to be spotlessly clean, with beautiful artwork through out, including a totem pole. The view through the floor to ceiling windows was amazing. We also enjoyed the large balcony which has a barbeque. The big, comfy couch in the livingroom was great for relaxing on and looking at the view. No need for a TV in this place. There is a tour company in the downstairs part of the building so we didn't have to go far for our whale watching experience. Everything else in Tofino is also within walking distance. Would love to stay here again.

So Beautiful!!!

  • 5 of 5
WOW!!!! This waterfront condo is stunning. My family and I had 5 incredible days in Tofino in July. After our adventure-packed day, we would LOOK FORWARD to getting back to our accommodations and relaxing with a glass of wine. As nature lovers, we were mesmerized by the view which was beyond words. How fortunate we are to have experienced this beautiful piece of our planet in this beautiful loft. We hope our future sees us there again.

The Loft

  • 4 of 5
The Loft is at the perfect location if you are visiting Tofino. Right by the ocean, and central to the town, we walked everywhere. Although a bit pricey, the loft is perfect for a couple. It has a private feel, and a great get-away. I would replace the sectional couch. It has been well loved, but is in dire need of cleaning for sure. Replacing would be best, since it is very hard to 'crawl' out of. We did miss the fact that there isn't a TV in the suite. The appliances are excellent. Thomas, our host, was exceptional and very accommodating on-line and in person.
