About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Welcome to Ebb & Flow, a new and modern Harbour View Vacation home near downtown Tofino.

Open spaces and natural design elements compliment floor to ceiling views of Clayoquot Sound and the Strathcona mountains, drawing a fine line between indoors and out.

Come in, relax and enjoy the view.

Kick back and un-wind after a day surfing at the beach or get cozy with a glass of wine and a good storm. Whether you’re here for adventure or some much-deserved R&R, Ebb and Flow is the perfect retreat to head back to after a busy day on the coast.

Designed with socializing in mind, Ebb & Flow offers an open upstairs floorplan with a stunning view from the bright and social kitchen and living rooms, which are centered around an open atrium looking down to below.

Ebb & Flow features three bedrooms centered around an open living space with big comfy sectional for cozy movie nights watched on the flatscreen. The floor downstairs is heated concrete.

Two bedrooms offer luxurious queen beds with fluffy duvets and refurbished vintage dressers while the third has two matching twins which can convert to one large bed. The master bedroom has a clean and modern ensuite with rainsoaker shower head and glass doors.

The private backyard offers a wrap around covered porch with BBQ, while at the front of the house is an upstairs deck perfect for sharing a glass of wine and enjoying the view of the ever-changing Tofino Harbour.

Walk to town for fine dining or shopping, or take the bike path to the local beaches a stroll. Hop in your car and its only five minutes til you're in the surf catching some waves.

About Steph Wightman

Steph and Donny have been living, working and surfing in Tofino for quite a few years now. Donny is a contractor and he built the house, while Steph is a manager and senior surf instructor at Surf Sister Surf School. We live onsite with our surfing dog, Penny. We are here to help you out if you need suggestions of what to do, who to fish with, or where to surf, or anything else for that matter. Otherwise though, you'll hardly notice we're there at all because hopefully we'll be at the beach!

Steph Wightman purchased this house in 2010

Why Steph Wightman chose Vancouver Island

Donny and Steph both moved to Tofino to chase waves, but have since fallen in love with pretty much everything it has to offer, from local music and great food to open ocean fishing and exploring Clayoquot Sound...the list goes on!

We built a big beautiful house but realized that we didn't need all that space, so decided to offer it up to the many tourists that visit Tofino.

What makes this house unique

Ebb and Flow is close to town for all of the conveniences it offers, yet close enough to the beach the you can ride a bike! The back yard is private and lush and you'll often see eagles soaring overhead. If you're really lucky you might even see orcas swim through the harbour from the front deck!

The Ebb and Flow guest house was fabulous for our Tofino vacation. The view of the Inlet from the house is fabulous and the yards and decks were stunning. It's a couple of blocks to town where there are fun bars and exquisite restaurants. A short drive takes you to Chesterman and Long Beach. Owners, Donny and Steph were friendly and helpful. The home was spacious and comfortable for our group of 4.

Great experience and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed four days at Ebb and Flow. This was our first trip to Tofino and we were looking for a place that was fully equipped, would accommodate six adults and four kids, that was close to the beaches for surfing and close to the town for walks and shopping. This property delivered everything as advertised. The home was modern, clean and spacious, hot tub was thoroughly enjoyed by all. The homeowners were very responsive to our questions and requests. I would recommend this property without hesitation and would certainly return.

Superb, new, modern, and wonderfully comfortable property!

  • 5 of 5

The Ebb and Flow was simply perfect for our group. We rented this home, and the adjacent home, The Lucky Eagle, for four days of adventure (swimming, surfing, hiking, biking, beaching, hot-tubbing) as well as reading, chilling, and eating! Perfectly situated! Gorgeous views. Close to everything: beaches, restaurants, excursions. We were a larger group and the proximity of the two houses was ideal! Beautifully designed, furnished, and fully equipped. There was nothing we needed. The homeowners have really thought of everything for a perfect stay. We are already planning our next visit. I recommend this property without hesitation!

A Wonderful Weekend!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is everything you can imagine and more! We had an amazing weekend in Tofino. The home was big, clean and exceeded all expectations. The hot tub was a great way to end the day after an afternoon at the beach. The location made it easy to walk to town or a quick drive to any beach. Thank you for a great stay and we will definitely be back!

Nice modern house

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this house for 4 nights at the end of june. It 's a very nice house (almost new) with modern decor and great view. It's also close to shop and restaurant. It was clean (except the oven). Steph is very flexible and she was very easy to deal with. We will be back!

Try Sobo restaurant when you will be there, it was delicious specially the flourless chocolate cake.
