Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

You wake up with the sun rising over the ocean from your antique French bed. You take your coffee and relax on the walk-out deck and watch the float planes land and the kayaks gliding past. The gourmet kitchen is outfitted with everything you need to make delicious meals using the organic ingredients and fresh seafood available just outside your door. After a glorious day of hiking, kayaking or surfing you decide to eat out, choosing from multiple possibilities including the acclaimed Wickaninnish Inn. (You'd stay there but you prefer over 1000 sq ft of private living space and your own deck). We are located in downtown Tofino on Main Street. You are within walking distance of everything in town.

You enjoy nature fully but you don't always want to stay rustic. You appreciate design and are well travelled. If this sounds like you we have a match for your accommodation in Tofino.

Miele appliances including washer, dryer, DW, stove, oven, micro, Sub-zero wine fridge and fireplace. Our luxury condo is beautifully and professionally furnished.

We hope you love it as much as we do!

About Margot

I am from Calgary, but I lived in Vancouver for 5 years. We spent every summer vacation during that time on Vancouver Island. Many years ago, I learned to surf in Tofino. I have very fond memories of the area.

We chose Tofino because it is remote and walkable. This property also gives us the urban comfort we expect and at the same time a real sense of nature.

Margot purchased this condo in 2009

Why Margot chose Tofino

This property was designed by the same architect that we used to renovate our 100 year old home in Calgary. We knew the project would be spectacular.

We love that Tofino is remote. I love walking the oceanside and the smell of the sea breeze.

It is perfect for a girls weekend, romantic getaway or some well deserved R&R.

What makes this condo unique

It is pure heaven. The air is fresh. The town is quaint and welcoming. We feel like we are in our own little oasis.

Great views, close to everything!

  • 4 of 5

Our ground floor condo with patio provided us with wonderful views and many opportunities for watching the sunrise and set in Tofino. The unit itself was spacious and new. The only negative I would say is that a float plane company is right outside the property and the planes are very loud and conversation would have to wait until they took off (which is quite regularly). Thankfully the unit insulated the sound quite well so it wasn't much of an issue inside.

If you like planes I would highly recommend the unit, if you don't you may wish to look elsewhere. We would definitely rent here again.

Beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

The location was beautify and well located in walking distance of a number of activities.

The air conditioning system was a little loud but nothing that impacted anything about the stay.

Perfect spot in the heart of the action

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for our family of 4. We loved being able to walk everywhere and watch the float planes and charter boats go by from the deck.

The kitchen was basically equipped, making it easy to prepare simple meals after a quick walk to the nearby Co-op.

We took advantage of the outfitter located in the same building and booked a trip to the Hot Springs (highly recommend!).

The owner is easy to deal with and communicates quickly, and the property manager was friendly and helpful. I would not hesitate to book this condo again.

Great location but Extremely dirty and no windows in one bedroom and no windows that open

  • 1 of 5

First of all I would like to say the owner was very helpful and accomodating concerning the issues. The owner lives in Alberta and has someone manage the Tofino property. We arrived late on the 21st of June, we did let the manager know we would be late. We picked up our keys from a lock box which was full of other keys and headed to the unit.

We found the condo no problem. When we entered we were extremely disappointed. The place was filthy. Hair, and crumbs everywhere. The bench at the table was so covered with hair and crumbs we didn't sit on it. The couch was severely stained and covered with black dirt under the cushions. Barbecue and oven were so dirty we couldn't use them the whole stay. Beds were looking a little messy. Dirty glasses, dirty fridge etc. Couldn't even use the tea kettle until we scrubbed it. Hood fan caked with grease and on and on. Called the owner immediately and she said someone would be there in the morning. THey came around 11AM and started cleaning. They told us when they came to clean after the last guest she had not checked out so they just never came back.

Toilet paper holder was on the floor in the main bathroom, tub would not hold water and you could not shut the shower off when you wanted a bath. No fresh air and the "fan" was so loud you had to shut it off to sleep.

As a previous vacation property owner I was shocked at how dirty it had been left.

The owner was very responsive and compensated us immediately.

Unfortunately I would not recommend this unit for several reasons, structurally with no windows in the one bedroom and no windows that open it is extremely stuffy. The lack of, in my opinion, professionalism with regard to the management company etc. No grab bars for seniors in the bathrooms. The fact of how dirty the place was left.

The location is great and the owner in Alberta was good to deal with.

Great family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic BC Family Day long weekend in Tofino, staying at this property. Check in and out was a bit of an adventure, but the stay and property itself was great. Our first VRBO, I think we will do it again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely comments. And thank you for pointing out the error in my key pick up instructions. I have fixed the information on the VRBO website, so this shouldn't happen again. Please come back again. You are wonderful guests.

Beautiful Stay

  • 5 of 5

Well appointed apartment centrally located in Tofino, with gorgeous views. Ideal for a family of four with two ensuite bathrooms. Only minor criticism is that it got a little warm at times so could do with a fan to cool it down, but we'll no doubt be wanting to come back next year!

Owner's Response: We are delighted you enjoyed it. It's been a very hot summer, we will most definitely look at getting a fan. Thanks for your feedback.
