That's me Lara and my husband Tim. We're long time Tofino residents and surfers. We live on the property in an adjacent suite. We are here to offer local knowledge and to answer any questions.
Owner purchased this House in 2009
Why Owner chose Tofino
The Chesterman Beach neighbourhood is a quiet residential neighbourhood set amongst the rainforest adjacent to the world class Chesterman Beach. This location offers unparalleled access to awe-inducing nature & waves daily. We're livin' the dream!
What makes this House unique
Nalu House's location at South Chesterman Beach is truly the best in Tofino to access all the surfing spots. Walking, biking or paddling distance to all the surf breaks.

Great spot close to the beach
Close to N/S Chesterman. Heated outdoor showers and Hot-tub are awesome after a cold surf
Glad you enjoyed it, Matt. Hope to see you again.
Great location, well kept and comfortable. A 2 minute walk to the beach.
Spent Easter weekend in Tofino. Plenty of space for the four of us. Owners live upstairs and there is a second rental suite, but we saw and heard very little of anyone. Cooked most of our meals and the kitchen was well equipped. A very short walk to the beach (cross the road and walk the length of the neighbour's property). Beach access trail is right across the road.
Thanks, Carla. So glad you had a great stay. Hope to see you again.
Great accommodation in a beautiful location
My wife, two year old son and I stayed for three nights in March. The accommodation was perfect - every you need for a short stay and just a very short walk to Chesterman Beach. Tofino is beautiful beyond words - we could have stayed a lot longer and hope to be back one day.
Glad you had a great stay Dan. It was a pleasure having your lovely family stay with us. Hope to see you again.
We absolutely loved staying in the Groundswell Suite!
Close walk to beach, nice sized, well stocked kitchen, just a nice space to stay in. Thank you!
Thanks Marcie, it was a pleasure hosting your group. Hope to see you again!

Very enjoyable respite
We found the Groundswell Suite to be nicely located, spacious and well equipped, perfect for an eagerly anticipated relaxing getaway. The hot tub was great, though the sauna (a real wood-fired one!) looked as if it hadn't been used in ages and lacking wood so we didn't try it. A few small complaints...the beds were super soft but a little too much so for us, and there was no cable TV (which meant we read more books...not so bad after all).
Thanks to our hosts Lara and Tim!
Nalu House was my 1st booking on VRBO ... and definitely not my last!
The VRBO online booking process was super easy (a friend recommended it).
The owners of Nalu House made us feel welcome as soon as we booked:
* email responses were responded to within hours
* I felt the rate charged was reasonable
* owner Lara was home to welcome us when we arrived
* the online ad is accurate, but does not convey how well outfitted the house is (we kept finding great things: iron & board, flashlight, games and a giant puzzle for rainy days, flashlight, picnic things, microwave, mini library, dog bowls, raised deck in backyard with two giant Adirondack chairs, and many more)
* the house was very clean
* the kitchen was well stocked with every appliance and gadget for guests who want to set up a home away from home and do some serious cooking at home
* my bed was very comfortable with a deep foam topping, and the closets were large (with loads of hangers) and filled with extra bedding and blankets
* the beach is a few steps from the door (across the road and down a short path)
This was my third visit to Tofino and I still haven't seen/done it all. There are loads of things to do for adults and children. This town is a surfing, hiking (and now dining) paradise. There are many marked trails for hiking, endless beaches, galleries, restaurants (something for everyone from cheap and cheerful to fine dining).
Nalu House is the perfect home base for you to explore Tofino. Tofino is one of the most beautiful, peaceful and amazing parts of the country. It is a hidden gem and worth the effort to get there.
Thanks so much Sylvia we're so glad you enjoyed Nalu House and Tofino. We agree there is so much to do and see! Hope to see you back again. All the best, Lara & Tim.
