Tofino House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + 2 Full Bathrooms (Sleeps 6) Close to the beach

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.

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.

IF ONLY THIS HOUSE WASN'T 4690 MILES AWAY

  • 5 of 5

If only this property wasn't 4690 miles away we would have already booked to return. Coming from the UK & spending so much on air fares we wanted somewhere special to stay on Vancouver Island & we found it.

Being less than 5 min drive to the village Tofino Dream Cottage is close enough to be convenient & far enough to be quiet & peaceful. The house is situated in a turn off from the end of the road & then along a small gravel drive which means you are surrounded by rain forest & not in view of any neighbours. There is a small property behind the house but we only saw someone there once so it really doesn't affect your privacy.

The house has a light & spacious feel thanks to the two story height of the living areas & windows virtually all the way around the ground floor. All the windows that open have a fine mesh guard to keep out any unwelcome critters. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you would need to self cater. The main bathroom has a huge two person shower with a heated slate floor. There is another bathroom upstairs with a bath under the skylights so you can look at the stars. There is one double bed on a mezzanine on the level and two bedrooms downstairs. All the beds were comfortable and the linen has a high thread count for that luxury feel. I am a light sleeper but slept very well at the cottage.

The cottage was very clean and well maintained.

You are only a few mins walk from a wonderful beach and a few mins more will take you to the Wickaninish Hotel with its lounge and fine dining restaurant. The house is on the edge of the Pacific Rim National Park which is an area of world importance for it's ecology. There a many trails through the park some very easy with boardwalk all the way and some more challenging. We did the rainforest walk which takes you into the heart of the rainforest & the south beach trail where we encountered a bear foraging on the beach ( once it smelt us it ran off into the woods - thank fully. ) Lots of different outfits offer a variety of tours from whale watching to helicopter trips to a glacier. We went on a whale watching tour but didn't see any whales but that was just bad luck.

Tofino has everything you need including a well stocked but expensive supermarket & lots of places to eat from high end to fish and chips. Very near the house is the tacofino van which serves excellent Mexican food.

If you are looking for a great place to stay in Tofino stop looking cause you've found it !

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you! Our family stayed at the beautiful Dream cottage on the May long weekend. It was so amazing, so clean, and we felt so at home. It was like walking into a magazine; all the trees around the home are spectacular, and the short walk to Chesterman beach - it was all like a fairy tale. We bought groceries and we able to make our own meals, all the utensils, barbecue, everything was there. Thank you very much for a wonderful stay, I so look forward to coming again and have recommended your beautiful home to several folks at my work. Thanks again
