About The Owner

I moved to Tofino for the 'Summer' and never left. That was over 18 years ago. I love to travel but I when I return home to Tofino, I feel truly blessed to live in this amazing place!

The Owner purchased this studio in 2002

Why The Owner chose Tofino

This cozy harbourfront studio was my home for 8 years. My family outgrew the space and sadly, we needed to move. I now welcome travellers from around the globe to appreciate this great little studio apartment.

Great value!

  • 4 of 5

My fiancée and I discovered Tofino for the first time in September - this place made it so easy. Great view off the deck, we watched the daily blue Herring fishing off the dock among other birds. The hourly float plane takes off just down the way, which we loved (we took that float plane to Maquinna Cove hot springs, HIGHLY recommend it!). Unit was equipped with the basics for cooking your own meals, the bed was comfortable and everything was in working order. There's a ramp from the parking lot making it easy to lug your luggage to the unit. Unit is walking distance to everything, that's the beauty of Tofino it's so small!

The only negative was that the place smelled of marijuana when we arrived, we bought an air freshener and left all windows open and it improved.

Overall great spot to explore the town with a nice view!

My husband and I stayed here for a mini-honeymoon following our wedding and totally enjoyed! You can't beat the amazing view - cup of coffee on the deck in the morning was perfect! Nice and close to everything in town so just park and walk.

Ideal vacation getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 5 nights inn the studio. Naomi did everything over the phone to make check-in and check-out seamless. Both of us found the location and the amenities ideal for this trip. Able to quickly put together breakfasts and lunches. In walking distance of whale watching and kayak tours, great restaurants and grocery shopping. Plenty of beaches and hikes are within a short drive.

My family and I stayed in the studio for 4 nights. The studio is located within walking distance to central Tofino. The studio is equipped with everything you need while there. I highly recommend staying in the studio!

All-round terrific experience

  • 5 of 5

We stayed four nights in the studio and found it to be just perfect for our needs as a couple traveling on our own. The studio was very well-appointed including a comfy bed, big couch (love the massive ottoman) and well-equipped kitchen which I did cook in on three of the nights we were there. I'm an avid home cook and I found everything I needed to make a nice meal.

The owner was very kind, responsive, and knowledgeable, and made sure we had everything we needed. She made our stay very relaxing and easy.

The studio is also extremely well-located by the water and close to the shops in town. We'd love to come back sometime soon! Thank you!

A Definite 5-Star Experience

  • 5 of 5

Add our names to the list of very satisfied guests! Naomi was most helpful and the accommodations were wonderful! If anything, the photos don't do the view justice. We had the added bonus of a group of 12 bald eagles sharing a fish on the beach right out front. We will be back!
