We would rate our stay as 4.5

  • 4 of 5

Everything was clean and the suite is very well equipped. We appreciated Laura's help with the TV.

A major consideration in booking Nalu House was the dog friendliness. The beach being right across the road was also just great!

This was our second stay and once again we really enjoyed our time at Pacific Rim!

Fantastic accommodation and location!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved Nalu House. Having stayed in the area at a different property previously, we were thoroughly impressed with the accommodation. Great set up for surfing or chilling out. Comfortable and well equipped. Cannot recommend Nalu House enough!

Private yet close to town with access to beach. Charming.

  • 5 of 5

The Nalu House had great amenities and linens. The lawn and foliage were extremely well kept and quite beautiful. We loved being able to walk to the beach so easily. There were only three of us but the house is big enough for at least two couples and some kiddos. Absolutely a great trip to Tofino and we can't wait to return.

Lovely location, owners and suite! Everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time we stayed an extra night! It is well located across from beach access. We could hear the waves even with the windows closed! Enjoyed the hot tub and the well stocked kitchen. Everything you need. There is a sweet, bright dining room and very spacious common area. Very comfortable beds! We'll be back.

great for a group

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at Nalu with friends, and one dog ... and it was a great weekend in a great location. The yard is beautiful, the beach is close, owners are very friendly and helpful. Loved the outdoor shower for rinsing off sand. Hot tub was clean. Bedrooms are comfortable. Kitchen is well appointed, and we really enjoyed the dining room and the open living area ... and an excellent stock of board games (for the rainy weather). The only downside was running out of propane on the BBQ halfway through cooking supper ... but hey, that happens at home too! Was sad to leave ... would definitely stay there again!

Fantastic Stay at a Great Property

  • 5 of 5

My wife, son, and I stayed at Nalu House in June 2014 and had an amazing visit. The house and grounds are wonderful, and they are only a short walk from the beautiful beach and an easy drive from town. The 2 BR suite was very spacious, quiet, and included all of the necessary amenities. The owners were great as well. We highly recommend this spot and would definitely stay here again if we ever make it back to the area.
