About the property

2 bedrooms, 2 baths, sleeps 4 total

Heron House is the perfect getaway for a couple traveling alone or with family or friends. Situated on the west coast of Vancouver Island centrally located on the bike and walking path between the village of Tofino and world class beaches. The cottage is nestled amongst soaring cedars on 1.5 private acres on Tofino Inlet. Relax on the deck surrounded by nature, light a fire in the outdoor fire pit or cozy up to fire inside the creative interior.

Spectacular west coast setting Heron House gives you comfort in style and perfect for those looking for something creative, private and original.

Why Pat Robertson chose Vancouver Island

It is my honor and a privilege to be the gatekeeper of this beautiful piece of property for so many years. Sharing with you allows me to share the unique spirit of the pacific northwest. After the days adventure the cottage is your home away from home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are so sad that we have to move to different accommodation here in Tofino. This is such a sweet house. Our family enjoyed the fire pit (smores), grilled salmon we actually caught and cooked on the grill outside, rode bikes up and down the bike path to get gelato and chocolates. This place is awesome. Wish we could stay longer!

A perfect trip to Tofino

  • 5 of 5

The Heron House was a key part of our fabulous trip to Tofino. The location was excellent, easy biking distance to the beaches, town and the Wildside commercial area. Nestled in a cedar grove, the house is private and quiet. Walking down to the sound with a cup of coffee was a great way to start the morning. Pat is a good communicator and very responsive.

My boyfriend and I stay in Heron House for a week in January. We had only planned to stay four nights and ended up staying six because we loved the house and Tofino so much! It was perfect for two people and would be great for a few close friends or a family. The house was well-stocked with kitchen utensils, food staples, puzzles and games, books, and movies. Loved soaking in the claw foot tub after surfing or hiking, and then sitting in front of the fire with a pint of Tofino brew.
