BEACHFRONT TOFINO- FOR FAMILIES!

Tofino Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Lovely large private suite, family- friendly, private sandy beach 25 steps from the door! Floor to ceiling windows throughout giving panoramic views towards the open Pacific, Lennard Island Lighthouse and Tonquin Beach. The new Tonquin Trail begins at the end of Tonquin beach and leads through virgin rainforest, platform lookouts over Templar Channel and two more beaches.The UNESCO Biosphere of Clayoquot Sound is at your doorstep. Discover the story behind the wreck of the Tonquin!

The three bedroom, two bathroom suite, large living room, dining room, with hand adzed beams, wood-burning fireplace, and sundeck create an ambiance not replicated in other Tofino homes. There is a king sized bed in the master bedroom with adjacent three piece en-suite, queen bedroom with completely new shower en-suite, and twin bedroom with extra long twin beds. The living area is spacious enough for games, the fireplace, and flat screen TV. The dining room table has space for 8 comfortably. A large south facing sundeck wraps around the three bedrooms, overlooking Tonquin Beach. At the main entrance, there is a small covered deck with large barb-b-que.

Following the steps down to the beach on a short trail, there is a beautiful pocket sandy beach, perfect for sunsets, outdoor beach games or a hot dog roast. A long beach walk can be enjoyed from the private beach to Tonquin Beach and beyond at low tide. Tonquin Beach is a hidden treasure, with cultural history, scenic coves, and a natural freshwater pool perfect for young children to enjoy. We also have a trampoline on the property that is available with supervision ! For those interested in fishing, you can fish right off the rocks in front of the house at high tide !

If you prefer, you can walk the 1 km. road into town to enjoy an evening meal or go shopping.

We have boogy boards, and a surf board available to borrow at no extra cost! Enjoy the simple Tofino experience of surfing, fishing, and hiking. We will provide all the information you need to make your experience here memorable!

We bought our house in 1989, and began doing Bed and Breakfast in Tofino in 1990, as one of only 5 houses to do so at the time. In 1998 we converted the main floor of the large house into a private vacation rental suite, allowing guests to share our experience of living 'on the beach'. My husband works at the hospital in Tofino, as a physician, and I serve on the District of Tofino Council, Tonquin Trail Committee, and the Clayoquot Biosphere Trust.

Cathy Thicke purchased this cottage in 1989

We chose this property for its 1.3 acre south and west facing beachfront, and its proximity to town and the local hospital! It is a very unique property, with two beaches, hiking trail, great kayaking, 'supping' opportunities, whale watching, breath-taking sunsets, and the best low tide viewing on the Tofino coastline. You can even surf on Tonquin Beach in the winter! The sunsets here are sublime!

Beach walking, Tonquin Trail through old growth rainforest and sandy beaches, SUP-ing, kayaking, fishing from beach, whale watching from the beach in front, surfing, storm-watching, trampoline on property, and to finish- Tofino has many Canadian culinary delights ! ( Sobo and Tacofino are our favourites!)

TOFINO PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
We rented this property for 3 nights for 5 adults and it was perfect for us. The suite is large which gave us lots of breathing room and no one felt like we were crowded or living on top of each other. All three bedrooms were a good size with sliding glass doors to a private deck and beautiful scenery. We slept wonderfully to the sounds of waves hitting the beach. The living room had plenty of sofa and chair space for us and was very comfortable too. Kitchen is adequate and about the only thing we would have liked is a dishwasher.

The location is stunning and the beach is so private and lovely. You really can’t go wrong here unless you have mobility issues because there are a lot of stairs. The suite was very clean and felt homey. The owners live upstairs but still we felt like we had our privacy and in a way, it was nice to know that someone was near in case we needed something.

Overall, we were impressed and thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We would come back without a doubt.

Tonquin Trail is newly completed and adjacent to the house- with spectacular views over the Clayoquot Sound Biosphere, and the wreck of the Tonquin ( 45 min. round trip). At low tides, Tonquin Beach is the best beach in the area for tidal pool viewing. Whales, eagles, and fish abound and may be seen from the sundeck or beach in the spring and summer. Tofino is the best place to learn to surf in Canada and is the surfing capital of Canada ! There are many stores providing lessons, with Surf Sister generally thought to be the best. Whale watching or bear watching by boat is also an option, with Remote Passages offering family packages. Sobo restaurant, only 1 km. away offers very healthy food at affordable prices ( child friendly menu), and the best margaritas in Canada!
