This place is up in the top ranks for best luxury stay in the area although for what you get and the amount of guests possible, it’s quite affordable for a week. In the Summer months when the demand is high you’re looking at just about $3500 for Saturday to Saturday. The Tofino Dream Cottage is close to the beach, surrounded by beautiful dense rain forest and is an ideal vacation spot for a getaway with the family or a great group of friends! This home has all the luxurious features and the kitchen was amazing..I literally cooked up a storm every night we were there. I loved the hot tub on the wrap around cedar deck and the wifi made working a little easy.
The Dream Cottage is an excellent base to explore the Tofino - Ucluelet region. It is a stunning west coast design with fabulous natural landscaping and a surrounding forest. The stone fireplace, 2 story bathroom with stained glass window, and huge deck are highlights, along with a new hot tub. Appliances and amenities are first class and the beds are very comfortable. We spent many hours relaxing, reading and watching hockey playoffs in the comfort of the living room. The beach is a short walk through a forest trail and the neighbourhood is extremely quiet. The owners have a cottage nearby but we felt totally private and enjoyed meeting their personable son.
Diane was extremely responsive and helpful from my first contact. Highly recommend as a wonderful setting to experience Vancouver Island's West Coast.
This place is just AWESOME. Clean, spacious and stunning landscaping. My wife and I were here on our honeymoon and just loved this place. This is truly a place where you go to relax and just take a step back from everything. The hot tub is awesome! The beds are so comfy and the shower/bath tub is second to none. You are very close to the beach, a quick walk and a short drive to some great dinning. We surfed and did some sea kayaking and spent most days walking or running on the beach. Even if it rains, Tofino Dream Cottage is amazing. I could go on all day, I will just say that if I was to move to Tofino, this is the kind of house you dream of, they did not cheap out on anything.
If only this property wasn't 4690 miles away we would have already booked to return. Coming from the UK & spending so much on air fares we wanted somewhere special to stay on Vancouver Island & we found it.
Being less than 5 min drive to the village Tofino Dream Cottage is close enough to be convenient & far enough to be quiet & peaceful. The house is situated in a turn off from the end of the road & then along a small gravel drive which means you are surrounded by rain forest & not in view of any neighbours. There is a small property behind the house but we only saw someone there once so it really doesn't affect your privacy.
The house has a light & spacious feel thanks to the two story height of the living areas & windows virtually all the way around the ground floor. All the windows that open have a fine mesh guard to keep out any unwelcome critters. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you would need to self cater. The main bathroom has a huge two person shower with a heated slate floor. There is another bathroom upstairs with a bath under the skylights so you can look at the stars. There is one double bed on a mezzanine on the level and two bedrooms downstairs. All the beds were comfortable and the linen has a high thread count for that luxury feel. I am a light sleeper but slept very well at the cottage.
The cottage was very clean and well maintained.
You are only a few mins walk from a wonderful beach and a few mins more will take you to the Wickaninish Hotel with its lounge and fine dining restaurant. The house is on the edge of the Pacific Rim National Park which is an area of world importance for it's ecology. There a many trails through the park some very easy with boardwalk all the way and some more challenging. We did the rainforest walk which takes you into the heart of the rainforest & the south beach trail where we encountered a bear foraging on the beach ( once it smelt us it ran off into the woods - thank fully. ) Lots of different outfits offer a variety of tours from whale watching to helicopter trips to a glacier. We went on a whale watching tour but didn't see any whales but that was just bad luck.
Tofino has everything you need including a well stocked but expensive supermarket & lots of places to eat from high end to fish and chips. Very near the house is the tacofino van which serves excellent Mexican food.
If you are looking for a great place to stay in Tofino stop looking cause you've found it !
Thank you! Our family stayed at the beautiful Dream cottage on the May long weekend. It was so amazing, so clean, and we felt so at home. It was like walking into a magazine; all the trees around the home are spectacular, and the short walk to Chesterman beach - it was all like a fairy tale. We bought groceries and we able to make our own meals, all the utensils, barbecue, everything was there. Thank you very much for a wonderful stay, I so look forward to coming again and have recommended your beautiful home to several folks at my work. Thanks again
I would highly recommend this cottage for those looking for the perfect vacation home. We had an amazing stay at the Tofino Dream Cottage. The property far exceeded our expectations on every level. Meticulously clean. Incredibly warm and cozy with super comfy beds. The forest trail to the beach was magical and hearing the ocean surf from the property was sooo relaxing. The wrap-around cedar deck with the hot tub was lots of fun for the kids and so close to the beach. I now know what my dream house would look like.

Dream Cottage was the perfect retreat for us to celebrate my birthday. We loved the location, with the sandy path to Chesterman Beach. We enjoyed a day of whale watching, hiking, and the weather was great. The cottage was spotless and very warm and cozy. Awesome shower. The kids especially enjoyed the outdoor hottub. Thanks you for sharing this piece of paradise with us. We will be back.
