The house was purchased with a partner in 2006. We did some vacation rentals under the name of 'Cloudbreak Vacation Rentals' between 2007 and 2010. My husband and I have recently bought-out the partners and are excited to be offering year round vacation rentals. We have made some exciting changes, from changing the name of the house to renovating the basement suite.
My husband and I love the Bamfield community, the wilderness and the beautiful long sandy beaches.
