Guestbook comments from the owner
Hi Julie, it was great dealing with you and arranging everything for our weekend. The place was great for 6 people, the location being steps away from the beach was perfect and being so close to everything one would need. Great to be close to surf, rental shops, coffee shops and restaurants.

Loved the hot tub and the kitchen had everything we needed. 2 bathrooms!! One with soaker, excellent!! Being nestled in the forest provided the perfect getaway. Thank you for everything,

Jen

Brian and Julie completed construction on this vacation rental in June of 2006. Built by themselves, it was created to provide a comfortable lodging for family and friends when they come to visit in Tofino. It has proven to be extremely well liked by numerous groups and always has repeat guests.

The Abalone Inn is situated on an amazing 2 acre property that is completely surrounded by trees which makes it very private but still very close to the beach. You feel like your in your own little paradise here surrounded by ancient cedars. Still lots of sun on deck and you can here the surf.

The Abalone has beautiful fir logs supporting the ceiling which were salvaged and milled by Brian and Julie. The ceilings are cedar tung and groove and the floor is solid hardwood.

There is a beautiful large jetted tub in the master bathroom to provide that spa- like atmosphere.

GREAT HIDDEN GEM

  • 5 of 5
We stay here during spring break for 3 nights, it's in the wilderness and a 5 min walk to Chestermans beach. We will for sure stay here again. The water in the hot tub was changed for us, since the people before made a mess, that was nice to see. The washer and dryer was handy to have and the baster bathe room upstairs has a wonderful big tub. The only complaint I have is that we should have stayed longer, recommended stay 4-5 nights. The beaches are breath taking a must see. If you like somewhere quiet this is the place.

GREAT COZY CABIN FOR A BIRTHDAY WEEKEND!

  • 5 of 5
My family of 6 stayed here recently for my father in-laws birthday! We really enjoyed the location, being close to Chesterman Beach, and being nestled in between the trees. The cabin was quiet, clean and full of all the necessities. The outdoor shower was super convenient for hosing off surf gear!

We'll definitely be back! Thanks again!

BEST PLACE TO STAY!

  • 5 of 5
We came here with 8 people had such a blast. Julie and Brian provide everything you could ever need at the house; towels for the beach, games (yes, we played 3D snakes and ladders!), satellite tv and WiFi. Everything was really clean when we arrived and the dishwasher and washing machines worked really well. I felt like we used a lot of hot water too with 8 people showering and it didn't seem to run out by the last person.
If you are looking for a place near the beach to go surfing at, it's literally a 5 min walk to Chestermans beach. Very convenient. We definitely will be back :D

PERFECT SURF TRIP CABIN!

  • 5 of 5
What a great place to stay in Tofino for a surf trip! The Abalone is situated nice and close to all the surfing beaches and equipped with a great outdoor shower and hot tub so you can relax have a hard surf. Affordable, clean, quite, and a beautiful cabin design. Make sure you bring your BBQing essentials on for your visit and take advantage of the beautiful wrap around deck! Our group liked this place a lot and will be coming back soon! Thanks Brian and Julie!

TOFINO - A LITTLE BIT OF PARADISE

  • 4 of 5
My family rented this property for 4 days in September. The house is well equipped and comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay including beach towels; which came in very handy. The hot tub was great and provided welcome relief for achey bones after a lovely long walk through the forest and then along the beach. We had amazing weather the whole of our stay and saw some beautiful sunsets on Chesterman Beach and also loads of wildlife including whales, seals, bald eagles and beautiful colourful starfish. We all loved the self-guided (interpreted) rain forest hike and can now say we are proud 'tree huggers'. It was awe inspiring. We would certainly stay at the Abalone again next time we are in Tofino. One suggestion would be to light up the house number at the road with a solar light or similar, it can be a bit hard to see in the dark.

PERFECT TOFINO GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
I've been staying at the Abalone Inn every summer for over 4 years now. The cabin sleeps 6 comfortably and with a full kitchen and 2 full bathrooms, you have all the comforts of home. But there is one major difference - complete tranquility. The cabin is a few minutes walk to South Chesterman and near the Pacific Rim Highway, but being nestled within the trees of the rain forest, it is SO quiet and peaceful. I am never more relaxed than when I'm in Tofino at the Abalone Inn. The outdoor shower is very convenient for washing up after a day of surfing/beach activities and you can jump directly into the hot tub afterwards. The Inn is just a few minutes drive from town if absolutely need to leave, but the owners Julie and Brian make sure you have all the basic necessities. I plan to continue staying at the Abalone at least once a year :).
