Vancouver Island Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Chalet, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, Sleeps 11 (or 15 when rented with the Cabin)

The chalet is a stunning custom open concept cedar chalet with all the comforts of home. 27 foot vaulted ceilings in the great room, custom woodwork throughout and a large open concept layout make this a breathtaking vacation home perfect for families and groups. You will not find another vacation rental with this much open space!!

Norah House Retreat offers two separate, private vacation rentals on one large property just off the main road in Ucluelet, BC. This VRBO listing is for the chalet which offers sleeping accommodations for up to 11 guests with four private double bedrooms, an open loft with another two beds. The chalet has two bathrooms. The chalet also has a hot tub and a large bbq. Upon request we can also rent the adjacent cabin which features self-contained, private accommodations for up to 4 guests featuring a sleeping loft with queen bed, pull-out in the living room, private bathroom, a kitchenette and a small bbq. The cabin also has a fire pit! Ask us for rates for both units. The chalet and cabin combined can accommodate a maximum of 15 guests.

This accommodation is located in Ucluelet with easy access to Tofino, Long Beach, Pacific Rim National Park, and the Wild Pacific Trail. The Norah House Retreat is the ideal balance of rustic west coast charm and comfortable luxury. Located near Tofino, BC in the west coast fishing village of Ucluelet, Norah House's accommodations are only a 15 minute drive from world famous Long Beach, and Tofino is 30 minutes up the road. This lovely seaside village is framed on 3 sides by the Pacific Ocean giving our quaint village an island feeling.

Stay for two nights or two weeks, you’ll never run out of things to see and do in Ucluelet, Pacific Rim National Park, Long Beach and Tofino. Try walking, hiking, reading, surfing, kayaking, birding, relaxing, boating, fishing, storm watching, cycling, diving, spa treatments, and so much more! The Norah House Retreat sits on a large wooded lot just off the main road that runs from Ucluelet in the South to Tofino in the North of the Esowista Peninsula on the west coast of Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada.

About Tim Munson

We bought Norah House Retreat in December 2009 and are enjoying renting our new house to guests from around the world. Since we both love travelling, hosting people from different places and cultures is a natural fit for us.

Tim Munson purchased this chalet in 2009

Why Tim Munson chose Vancouver Island

We both grew up on Vancouver Island and have spent a lot of time in Ucluelet and the surrounding area over the years. We divide our time between 'Ukee', Sproat Lake (which is just north of Port Alberni) and Victoria. We are both outdoor enthusiasts who love the West Coast lifestyle. We spend most of our spare time surfing, hiking, and exploring our beautiful Island.

What makes this chalet unique

Vaulted ceilings and beautiful post and beam cedar construction. Towels, linens, soap, shampoo, conditioner and locally roasted coffee are provided. There is a full kitchen and dishwasher, hot tub, off street parking for boat trailers, bbq, deck and patio.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A group of ten of us stayed in The Chalet over the Easter long weekend. The place was absolutely superb. A massive place with a beautiful design both inside and out. The bedding was really comfortable, with pillow top mattresses on the beds and the comfiest sheets. The place had a hot tub which was perfect after a long days surfing, a wrap around balcony for bbq’s and a piano for the entertainer. The place had everything you could ask for, for a relaxing weekend away. Great location, just around the corner from relic, and a short walk to the ocean. Tim was very pleasant to deal with. He answered all questions and was very informative. He even allowed for additional people at the last minute. A great vacation home. We will be back for sure!!!

Loved our Ucluelet Chalet!

  • 5 of 5

My family gathered together to celebrate my niece's wedding and we wanted a home that would sleep all 11 of us. The Norah Street Chalet was the perfect fit. We all slept comfortably, had wonderful discussions around the large dining room table and family room. Also, loved the addition of the hot tub just outside. It met all of our expectations! Tim was very prompt at replying and Julie the house keeper was great at dropping off some more towels. Overall, a wonderful place to stay, perfect location too!

Great location, wonderful accommodation.

  • 5 of 5

This is the fourth time I have booked a group into Norah House. Tim, this owner, has always been very accommodating to all my requests. The house is beautiful and very grand. The location is convenient to everything in Ucluelet and only a block from the main road to Tofino which is a short 30 minute drive. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a family or group stay.

Super place close to downtown Ucluelet

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 5 adults and 3 kids stayed here while attending a wedding in Ucluelet and we enjoyed it very much! There was more than enough space for all of us, the property was very clean and well maintained, and the kitchen very well equipped. We found the beds very comfortable, and enjoyed having such a welcoming space to come back to at the end of the day. We had a wonderful stay and are already planning our return. Highly recommend!

Great Family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated some 40th bdays with a few families. The chalet was a great venue for parents and kids. Lots of space for everyone. We really enjoyed checking out the Aquarium and Wild Pacific Trail. Both are must sees!

Thanks for a great stay. Chalet was very well equipped and clean. Love the high ceilings in the great room.

Beautiful home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 11 ladies here for a bachelorette party and we all had a wonderful time. Overall the experience was fantastic and I would stay here again in the future. A few things I would say for improvement would be more in depth instructions on how to work the hot tub. It was luke warm the first night and cold the second. Also a few updated kitchen utensils (can opener - had a few laughs trying to open cans!), scissors were very dull, and a few new baking pans. These minor things aside, this place was more beautiful than the photos show. Gorgeous House, comfy beds, all in all a beautiful space. Thank you for hosting our special weekend!!! We'll see you next time Norah House :)

Excellent Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

tldr;

You should stay here.

We loved our stay at the Norah House. Tim (owner) was very professional in dealing with us. He responded promptly to the original booking, informed us ahead of time that the previous occupants were a little late getting out and that we might be delayed checking in (didn't affect us anyway), and in returning our damage deposit after our stay was completed. Thanks, Tim, for making this booking stress free!

The house itself is awesome and looks exactly like the pictures. Have to say, we always try to book places with hot tubs and this is the first time we've actually had a hot tub with hot water in it (and not a lukewam tub). We had 8 adults bedded very comfortably. Everything that we needed was available (dishes, kitchen stuff, towells, ironing stuff, wifi, etc...). The location is very convenient both for getting to places in town and for getting to the hotel our friends were being married at (Black Rock).

I can't say enough good things about our experience in Ucluelet and at the Norah House, and I hope we can return someday.
