About Zoe Rodocanachi
Having lived on the west coast, and Tofino in particular for most of my life is a testament in itself to the beauty of this temperate rainforest setting and wildness of the westcoast. I have lived through the changes from a population of 600 with an economy based primarily on fishing and logging, to the now permanent and always growing population of about 2000 with the primary industry now being tourism related. And I still love this place I call home! The rapid increase in population was not without growing pains, but with it came a wonderful community of like-minded individuals who all share a love for the beauty of the west coast. Added benefits are the amazing array of incredible restaurants to choose from should you choose to go out to eat. As someone who also loves to travel, I have made sure that from whatever part of the world you come from, the house will also make you feel at home with almost every imaginable need anticipated.
Zoe Rodocanachi purchased this house in 1994
Why Zoe Rodocanachi chose Tofino
I first came to the west coast as a teenager, looking for adventure and fell in love with the incredible beauty of the temperate raninforests and wild pacific open ocean. I lived further up the coast until moving to the 'metropolis' of Tofino when the population was still only about 600. As a young working mother I participated in the (still ongoing) Tofino housing shuffle for years, working and travelling but always returning to home base. After 4 years at University in Vancouver upon graduation I realized that despite the many opportunities afforded to me elsewhere, what I really wanted was a home for my son and I, and finally achieved my dream!
I have now become somewhat spoiled, in that in all my travels I have never found another place that not only matches the diversity and beauty of the area, but also where the surf is as consistent as it is here, and accessible by foot, bicycle, or car all within no more than a 15 minute drive to the furthest spot.
I no longer need a 3 bedroom house, but did need to build a workshop to store my tools, so with a suite above the workshop out back I am now the onsite caretaker for this vacation home, available to assist with any questions or needs that may arise, while still maintaining a discretionary privacy.
What makes this house unique
I love my property for it's close proximity to the beach, with the added bonus of being sheltered from the strong onshore winds in the private back garden.
