About Cathy Thicke
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.

Why Cathy Thicke chose Tofino
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!
What makes this house unique
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!)
