Non existant owner, no help

  • 1 of 5
Well, coming from a person with many years of food/beverage and hotel experience I would have to say that Elizabeth and John fall flat on a large part of their rental suite experience. First off, it took a number of times to pay for the place because the email Elizabeth sent me would not show up on the email(blocked) and when i tried to sort it out with her it took days to communicate. That said, after paying in full for some mystery place in which we didnt get to really know where it really was until payment, we set out. Upon arrival, the place was quite nice, clean and what we were looking for. The parties that were going on next door in their house were managable to deal with, but when we tried to lock the doors upon leaving, the lock was seized so we couldnt lock the door. Now, our time up there was so nice, we wanted to talk to owner about door(#1), Possibility of staying another night(#2) or a late checkout(#3). We called three times leaving messages on both their phones which they said would be the way to contact them to no avail.
Off we went for Victoria(home) only to realize that we forgot an important item and I once again tried to get ahold of Elizabeth via Email, upon which she was uncommunicative. It has now been a week since we checked out and still havent heard from her/them.
We know that this is not a hotel, but they did not live up to what they advertised, promised or were trying to provide. From the looks of it, its not the first time either.

Owner's Response: Dear Marty, I'm sorry our email thread of nineteen replies back and forth and 6 phone calls wasn't enough communication for you... its just a little rental that is super easy to book into and find, the majority of people have very little difficulty with the process. The directions to the address are very specific and there is no mystery as to where 925 Sandpiper Place is. As far as the party in the large rental next door, unfortunately sometimes we have BAD RENTERS, they are never invited back! And yes sometimes I am out of range with my phone, I cannot always answer my phone 24 hours a day but I do my best and I check my emails consistently throughout the day. As far as the moccasins, as we told you, we checked twice they are not here I am really sorry about that.

Awesome little place!

  • 5 of 5
Me and my girlfriend stayed here over the weekend and it was fantastic! The place is cozy, warm and inviting and it exudes relaxation; just what we both needed. I would recommend this place for any couple looking to get away from it all to relax and enjoy what Tofino has to offer. Close to surfing, great hot tub, great fire pit. Recommended, thanks Elizabeth!

Awesome!!!

  • 5 of 5
My teenage son and I stayed here for 5 nights in September. Everything was amazing!! The location was perfect, short walk to Chesterman's beach (my favourite!) and a very short drive to town, or a reasonable bike ride. My son loved the relative privacy of the loft and I loved the comfort of the bed on the main level. The kitchen was well stocked with lots of spices as well as olive oil and emergency coffee! I brought my own beans from home and truly appreciated the coffee-maker that would grind them fresh for a cup or two as well as a pot for those days when we wanted go-cups :) as well as any utensil or dish I was looking for. I also loved the deck with the privacy screen from the view of the house. The tides were particularly low while we were there so we only had an occasional peek at the water (mostly mud flats with the extreme low tides) but it wasn't an issue at all as we were out enjoying all that Tofino has to offer all day so I truly appreciated the quiet and privacy this location provided. There were people in the adjacent house while we were there (I saw their cars) but it felt like we were alone in the woods - perfect!!! As for the space, it was beautifuly decorated, well laid out, clean, well stocked with towels and extra bedding, the internet and cable was great (important with the teenager) as well as the movie selection. I liked the desk area which was a little surprise not pictured. We had a wonderful time in Tofino and coming "home" to the Nest each night just made it so much better!! I would definitely recommend this rental and would return in a heartbeat. Thanks Liz!!!

Lovely rental, but no communication from owners and not as described

  • 4 of 5
The Nest is actually a lovely, cozy, comfortable rental that I recommend with some reservations. The only communication we had with the owner, Liz, was at the time of the reservation confirmation. She requested, and we paid, the entire cost of the rental up front and she gave us the arrival information. We never received (as requested) a rental agreement and she had no further communication with us after that. On a positive note, the studio is nicely decorated, clean, with almost everything needed for a comfortable stay. The location is across the street from Chesterman Beach, about 4 miles from Tofino. The bike trail is close by, so a bike rental is a nice option and one we took advantage of. The kitchen is well stocked and easy to cook in, and the grill worked well. Pick up some fresh fish at the Tofino Fish Co! Although there is a TV, the satellite TV did not have a signal and we had no channels at all. We called Liz, who did not answer, and had a full mailbox. We then called Ken, who explained he was on the road and would notify Liz. We never heard back from either. The wireless internet for The Blue Heron had no connectivity at all. There was an excellent signal from an unsecured wireless in the area, so we connected to that. In addition, The Nest actually has no water view and no mountain view, as described. The views are actually in the back of the house/Blue Heron rental, which is across the driveway from The Nest. And although there is a 'shared hot tub' behind the house and Blue Heron rental, there was no information in The Nest to indicate that the renters are welcome to use it. For this reason we did not feel comfortable using it. The coffeepot only makes 12 cups and will not work if less water is added, which was a pretty big waste of water/coffee. Overall, we did actually like this place, but some of the advertised features that convinced me to rent this unit over other places were not provided, so beware! And the owner communication/contact was not acceptable.

Owner's Response: Im so sorry for the lack of response, we recently suffered a house fire and lost everything, it has been difficult getting back on our feet and getting organized again. I did not actually have a phone or computer for a few weeks until I could manage to get out and buy new ones. Everything is in working order in The Nest, the Breville coffee maker is top of the line and makes 1- 12 cups of coffee effortlessly (just tested it) but the satellite wireless can be spotty in Tofino. As far as the location I have never had anybody complain, Its such a beautiful piece of property but the trees do grow up in the summer so there is less of a view, makes the nest even more nestled in the forest. Im sorry you did not enjoy your stay, it was definitely bad timing for any sort of communication with us but in 3 years this is the only unhappy comment we have ever received.

Remote, quiet, fresh and relaxing

  • 5 of 5
We loved this location, a little tricky to find in the dark and not located on gps. Perfect walking distance to the beach! We liked that everything we needed were provided (ie- spices, cooking oil, all dishes, guest soaps) It was nice and clean, so quiet... no direct view access to the neighbours (only two buildings nearby). Only thing we would have changed is to stay another night or two. Highly recommended if you like privacy, and open space concept. 5 mins to town, perfect in case you forgot anything.. but go early as stores close early (5-7pm)
Enjoy!

Exquisite

  • 5 of 5
My husband, our newborn and I stayed 3 nights at The Nest. We loved it! It was serene and relaxing and not only had everything we needed, but had many extras that made us feel pampered. This property is beautiful and comfortable and the owner was a delight.
We would (and already have!) highly recommend The Nest to our friends and family.
