About Peter Maltby

Why we chose the West Coast of Vancouver Island:

35 years ago when our children were young we decided to venture to the west coast of Vancouver Island to enjoy the Pacific Rim National Park, the ocean wildlife, and rain forest. We camped for an extended period of time and fell in love with our surroundings. We meandered through life venturing to many other parts of the world, but to this day the west coast of Vancouver Island is our favorite. In 1999 we bought this property between Tofino and Ucluelet on an inlet where we could enjoy nature, weather and our own peace and solitude. Since that time we have renewed the property and made it into a duplex where, we along with our son's family, can share / pass time in this beautiful pristine setting.

Why Peter Maltby chose Ucluelet

The Unique benefits of this home:

We have enjoyed the beauty of the inlet and the surrounding mountains, rain forest, scenery, hiking trails, proximity to Tofino and Ucluelet, sand and surf, and the peace this environment brings. You can sit on the deck and watch the birds around you, enjoy the winter storms, and travel the many trails in this wonderful part of the west coast. There is no place like it. Inside it’s warm and cosy with all the necessities for comfortable living, even so far as plumbing on all floors. One can enjoy the winter storms from the warm protected environment of “the Inlet”. It is rare that we have an opportunity to experience nature in such a magnificent way.

What makes this cottage unique

Other Possibilities:

When our two families decided to convert the original house into a duplex, we saw the potential to bring family and friends together in one place. Two families or close-knit groups could come together and enjoy the wonder of this place. Time seems to stand still, no pressures from normal, every day stress. It is a different kind of “lost world”. One you will want to experience.

Beautiful & tranquil!

This property was the perfect choice. The inlet made for incredible views and bird watching. The home itself was clean & spacious enough for us. We were so happy with our stay. I highly recommend Peter’s home if you’re visiting the Ucluelet/Tofino area!

This was a very comfortable and well appointed duplex style of accommodation well designed for a vacation stay for a small family, or couples. Views are beautiful. Our stay was most enjoyable.... for myself and my son to catch up and go hiking, fishing and beach walking which were all nearby.

This lovely home was just as represented in the description and so much more. It was peaceful, comfortable, and very clean. There were so many little extras..from the "welcome" chocolate to cooking condiments! It was an easy run to either Uclulet or Tofino and the many beaches and hiking areas in between. For us it was a holiday to remember.
