OUR COTTAGE YOUR WEST COAST GETAWAY

Tofino House Rental Photos and Description

Our home is nestled amongst a forest of veteran red cedar trees, the understory a rich mosaic of species (including Pacific yew) true to our beliefs we have sought innovative ways to co-exist with nature and minimize our ecological footprint on this pristine landscape.

We bought the lot in 2003 and started building our cottage in 2008. We are both professional foresters, self confessed tree huggers and we love the westcoast for the pristine wilderness, temperate rainforest and miles of sandy beaches.

Mark purchased this house in 2003

We hope you enjoy your experience at our home away from home....

Please take nothing but memories

Leave nothing but footprints

Kill nothing but time.

The Resort municipality of Tofino built a new trail less than 100 yards from the front door which takes you to Tonquin Bay and along a scenic cliff top walk with beautiful vista's and stunning sunsets, eventually this coastal trail will take you all the way to Mackenzie beach.

This cottage was a perfect retreat for my family ( 4 adults, 4 kids ages10-15). The location is ideal. The walk to the local beach is stunning. The oysters we gathered were amazing. Walk to town was a breeze.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the feedback Lisa, we are very glad you enjoyed your holiday and hope that you will come back soon. We too love the location and convenience of being able to walk to town and to our favorite beach along the new Tonquin Beach trail and clifftop walk, the views and sunsets are stunning.

Roomy house in a beautiful setting

My brother's family, my parents, and my family (total 6 adults, 4 kids) stayed here for four nights.

The location is great. It's a short walk to "downtown" Tofino and to Tonquin Park Beach. We spent most of our days in Ucluelet and Pacific Rim National Park, using the cottage as a home base, but also took some short trips to the shops in Tofino and to the beach close by.

The cottage is roomy enough for 8-10 people. (There is bedding for 8.) I brought a couple of camping cots for my kids to sleep on with sleeping bags. We placed the two familes in the two upstairs bedrooms and my parents on the main floor. Having two bathrooms, one on each floor, was adequate for 10 people although there was the occasional queue for a shower, etc.

The kitchen is well-equipped. We made almost all of our meals in the cottage during our stay. There was more than enough dishware and cutlery for our small crowd. The fridge and freezer were quite small though. I wouldn't recommend stocking it with more than a couple days worth of food between trips to the store. There is enough seating for eight at two tables plus two more on stools at the island. There is a BBQ on the deck, which we used a few times.

Other amenties included a CD/DVD player, stereo/amp and a flat screen TV (to play DVDs - there was no regular TV service). There was a pretty good selection of DVDs and CDs to choose from but we also brought some of our own.

The wi-fi was slow by most standards but adequate for internet surfing and e-mail, etc.

NOTE: The wi-fi and the entertainment system are plugged into a switched outlet controlled by a light switch by the front door and near the kitchen. Tell your roommates to leave that switch alone!

The bathrooms were well-stocked with towels and shampoo/soap. Some of the towels were getting worn out from use/age. We brought some of our own and used those as well. There wasn't enough toilet paper to last 10 people for four days so we had to buy some.

The beds are pretty basic with futon style mattresses. We noticed some mold stains on some of the pillows and pillow cases. These should be replaced.

Overall, we had an excellent experience at the cottage. It was big enough to hold our extended family, was in a great location, and was reasonably priced. Would love to return someday.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for taking the time to provide a very comprehensive review and excellent customer satisfaction feedback.
We will ask our housekeeper to remove the stained pillow cases and replace with new and replace the worn towels as well. We keep the house well stocked with bathroom tissue but perhaps the backup supplies in the bathroom cabinet and closet were not easy enough to find. We are glad you had a wonderful holiday and hope to see you again next year.
Best Regards
Mark & Sara

Quiet and clean cabin in gorgeous Tofino

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 22, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
The cabin was just as described - well furnished, clean and conveniently located to walk to the beach or to 'downtown' Tofino. Our boys especially liked the Star Trek DVDs! The annual pass for the local park was a nice touch. The only complaint we had was the mattresses seemed to be futon mattresses rather than traditional mattresses and weren't particularly comfortable. We all found them to be a little lumpier than what we are used to.

Mark made the logistics seamless - he was very prompt with email, and sent us useful tourist information about the area. He accepted my checks in US dollars, which saved me a lot of money and time not having to exchange using PayPal or a money order.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to post a review. No-one has ever mentioned the futon mattresses being lumpy before, but in the interest of providing for the comfort of our guests we will be happy to replace them with traditional mattresses when we visit again in September. Excellent feedback thanks again.
