Tofino Dream Cottage is a stunning example of contemporary West Coast architecture. This timber-framed, bright spacious home is located in the midst of its own half-acre professionally landscaped gardens. It is private, yet only a 3 minute walk down a sandy path is spectacular Chesterman Beach. Surfing, beachcombing and close proximity to surf rentals, an array of neighbourhood shops restaurants, cafes, and the village of Tofino. Here is accommodation that offers it all. Tofino Dream Cottage will be enjoyed by everyone: It is a wonderful place for couples seeking a romantic retreat. It is a superb place for a group getaway. It is a perfect family home for adults and children.

We built this beautiful westcoast vacation home by the sea for family, friends and the many visiting guests who come to celebrate this spectacular location. The cottage harmonizes a nice flow between outdoor and indoor living spaces. The outdoor hot tub and expansive multi-level decks surround the home and reach out to the forest edge. Manicured gardens, total privacy, dramatic forest landscape and the beach nearby, make Dream Cottage the perfect getaway retreat..

We hope you choose Dream Cottage for your getaway and that you become one of our many returning guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This place is up in the top ranks for best luxury stay in the area although for what you get and the amount of guests possible, it’s quite affordable for a week. In the Summer months when the demand is high you’re looking at just about $3500 for Saturday to Saturday. The Tofino Dream Cottage is close to the beach, surrounded by beautiful dense rain forest and is an ideal vacation spot for a getaway with the family or a great group of friends! This home has all the luxurious features and the kitchen was amazing..I literally cooked up a storm every night we were there. I loved the hot tub on the wrap around cedar deck and the wifi made working a little easy.

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect property for a vacation in Tofino. Close to the beach and all of Tofino amenities. The property itself is gorgeous, very private with great deck space going around the entire house. Beautiful landscaping with lots of flowering shrubs and trees. The inside is warm and inviting and immaculately kept. The outdoor shower and hot tub were such a pleasure following a day at the beach surfing with the kids. The pictures on the website are beautiful and the house lives up to the photos. Just absolutely perfect. Thank you Dianne, we will definitely be back.

Beautiful home in ideal location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Dream Cottage. The home and property is beautiful - close to everything, but so private you really feel like you have gotten away from it all (even in one of the busiest tourist months.) We loved our misty morning walks on Chesterman beach, the daily bike rides into town, hanging out on the deck and cooking together each evening. One of the best family vacations we've had in years and we're all looking forward to coming back!

The perfect family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Tofino Dream Cottage. From the moment we pulled up to the property and saw the beautiful landscaping and deck that surrounds the house, we knew we'd picked the right place for our family holiday. It's in the perfect location - walking distance to chesterman beach, a short bike ride on designated bike paths or quick hop in the car to Tofino centre, and right by a cute little cluster of shops (grocery store, bike rental, chocolate shop etc). When our toddler napped at lunchtime, we had the hot tub and sun-trap deck to enjoy in peace. Thank you very much. We'll be back!

Fantastic home!

  • 5 of 5

The "Dream Cottage" is well named. It is truly stunning both inside and out and we had a very comfortable stay for four nights. The location was perfect - our boys walked to the beach at least 4 times each day and the hot tub and outdoor shower were awesome. The place was immaculate when we arrived and the grounds and large deck were lovely. Dianne was very responsive to our enquiries. A perfect retreat and we will definitely be back!

A Stunning Stay

  • 5 of 5

The Dream Cottage is an excellent base to explore the Tofino - Ucluelet region. It is a stunning west coast design with fabulous natural landscaping and a surrounding forest. The stone fireplace, 2 story bathroom with stained glass window, and huge deck are highlights, along with a new hot tub. Appliances and amenities are first class and the beds are very comfortable. We spent many hours relaxing, reading and watching hockey playoffs in the comfort of the living room. The beach is a short walk through a forest trail and the neighbourhood is extremely quiet. The owners have a cottage nearby but we felt totally private and enjoyed meeting their personable son.

Diane was extremely responsive and helpful from my first contact. Highly recommend as a wonderful setting to experience Vancouver Island's West Coast.

Amazing and private

  • 5 of 5

This place is just AWESOME. Clean, spacious and stunning landscaping. My wife and I were here on our honeymoon and just loved this place. This is truly a place where you go to relax and just take a step back from everything. The hot tub is awesome! The beds are so comfy and the shower/bath tub is second to none. You are very close to the beach, a quick walk and a short drive to some great dinning. We surfed and did some sea kayaking and spent most days walking or running on the beach. Even if it rains, Tofino Dream Cottage is amazing. I could go on all day, I will just say that if I was to move to Tofino, this is the kind of house you dream of, they did not cheap out on anything.

Owner's Response: WOW! Thank you so much for this unsolicited positive review. It was a labour of love building our first home and somehow it emits an aura of joy for us when we know our guests have a good experience. Good luck on the upcoming addition to your family.
