About Zoe Rodocanachi

Having lived on the west coast, and Tofino in particular for most of my life is a testament in itself to the beauty of this temperate rainforest setting and wildness of the westcoast. I have lived through the changes from a population of 600 with an economy based primarily on fishing and logging, to the now permanent and always growing population of about 2000 with the primary industry now being tourism related. And I still love this place I call home! The rapid increase in population was not without growing pains, but with it came a wonderful community of like-minded individuals who all share a love for the beauty of the west coast. Added benefits are the amazing array of incredible restaurants to choose from should you choose to go out to eat. As someone who also loves to travel, I have made sure that from whatever part of the world you come from, the house will also make you feel at home with almost every imaginable need anticipated.

Zoe Rodocanachi purchased this house in 1994

Why Zoe Rodocanachi chose Vancouver Island

I first came to the west coast as a teenager, looking for adventure and fell in love with the incredible beauty of the temperate raninforests and wild pacific open ocean. I lived further up the coast until moving to the 'metropolis' of Tofino when the population was still only about 600. As a young working mother I participated in the (still ongoing) Tofino housing shuffle for years, working and travelling but always returning to home base. After 4 years at University in Vancouver upon graduation I realized that despite the many opportunities afforded to me elsewhere, what I really wanted was a home for my son and I, and finally achieved my dream!

I have now become somewhat spoiled, in that in all my travels I have never found another place that not only matches the diversity and beauty of the area, but also where the surf is as consistent as it is here, and accessible by foot, bicycle, or car all within no more than a 15 minute drive to the furthest spot.

I no longer need a 3 bedroom house, but did need to build a workshop to store my tools, so with a suite above the workshop out back I am now the onsite caretaker for this vacation home, available to assist with any questions or needs that may arise, while still maintaining a discretionary privacy.

What makes this house unique

I love my property for it's close proximity to the beach, with the added bonus of being sheltered from the strong onshore winds in the private back garden.

Wonderful, Relaxing, and Welcoming

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at Zoe's for 10 days and absolutely loved it. The accommodations were exactly as described, comfortable and charming. Zoe is a welcoming host and provided advice as well as answered all our questions. Bring bikes and save the drive into Tofino for some shopping.

If you like cooking the kitchen is well stocked with all the pots, pans and utensils required to make some great meals.

We would certainly stay again.

Thank you Zoe - you are a charm!

Great Place to Unplug and Relax!

  • 5 of 5

Zoe's house was incredibly relaxing and so close to the beach! My husband and I stayed there with my sister's family and there was plenty of room for us all. We enjoyed sitting on the front deck reading or taking the short walk to the beach. Zoe was very welcoming and was available if we had any questions. We really enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to book here again.

Relaxed charm on Chesterman Beach

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and another couple spent 3 nights at Zoe's Place. The house is very conveniently located a minutes walk to the beach. With a wood burning fireplace, hot tub and beautiful bed linens it was a mix of a little luxury within a very relaxed atmosphere. The house has a cozy casual chic about it so it feels like a home away from home. Zoe is lovely, very welcoming but respectful of privacy. She had decorated with some Christmas lights which really made it festive and also had a plateful of delicious home-made cookies waiting for us in the kitchen. Since I cook and we had a few special meals planned for Christmas, I really appreciated the excellent cookware and good dishes. Thank-you Zoe - we'll be back!

Perfect spring girl's getaway

  • 5 of 5

Zoe's was the perfect place to have a short spring retreat! From the initial contact, to the open door "just come on in" note on the door to the fresh homemade cookies awaiting us, it was immediately our home away from home. The decor was cozy and inviting and all the books around the house in the shelves tempted us. We kept commenting how we could have brought our families and still had enough room. A short 1 minute walk to Chesterman beach ensured we were out beach combing every morning and the hot tub was so inviting to come back and warm up in. We loved our stay and we will highly recommend Zoe's to our friends and hopefully we'll be back!

The Location was awesome, only a 2 minute walk to the beach. The house was clean and well suited for 3 couples having 3 queen beds with all the comforts of home. We enjoyed our stay and would do it again.

Zoe's at North Beach is a 3 bedroom house located directly across the road from beautiful North Chesterman beach. Leisurely beach walks and beach-combing, wildlife viewing and bird-watching, or perhaps a morning jog as a warm up for a surf are all just a 2 minute walk away. Gourmet restaurants - from take-out to fine dining, whale- watching and fishing, golfing and hiking, or spa treats and shopping are all available year round.
