Guestbook comments from the manager

We really enjoyed our stay at the Dunes - a long way from our home in the Netherlands, Europe. A wonderful, cosy house in a beautiful surrounding. A great way to combine family visit in Vancouver with holiday.

Thank you for the great experience, you fulfilled your promise in the internet ad.

Many regards from

My stay at the Dunes was wonderful! The home was very private and the location was perfect..Good friends ,good food and drinks, and the beach is calming. We had great weather for both storm watching and walking the beach. The home is tastefully decorated(very west coast)..and spotless. We will be back same time next year.Cheers!

I recommend the Dunes to everyone who loves a bit of luxury in the wilderness

  • 5 of 5

My stay at the Dunes was one of the most memorable surf trips of the last year, a mini "mancation" with a couple of buddies for a few days in January. The accommodation was the stand out part of our trip and the hub of our pre and post surf fun. The back deck and hot tub were amazing! Totally private. Fire up the barbie, make yourself a gourmet coffee. Close enough to hear the waves but not be pummeled by non stop wind. The Dunes is the perfect spot and the place is set up to a super high standard. Love it!

We had a great time retreating from real life responsibilities for a few days. We really enjoyed your home and hot tub especially! The location was perfect for us to surf every day and enjoy the beautiful weather that we were most lucky with. We felt like we were in the forest with all the greenery and birds, Perfection!

Cheers to a great holiday, we'll be back soon!

Fabulous place for couples retreat

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous place to have a couples retreat and celebrate a birthday! Nothing like good drinks, old friends, and new experiences. We were blessed with sunshine this morning for our private helicopter ride around Tofino and surrounding areas. A memorable holiday!

Love the Dunes!!!

  • 5 of 5

Hello all we stayed at the dunes this winter during a surf trip. The place is amazing. Walking distance to north chestermans beach for epic surf walk back and straight into the hot tub. The house is perfect size, super clean and modern. The kitchen has everything needed for cooking five start dinners and even has a pro espresso machine for the morn to get ya pumped for the surf. High speed internet and a great stereo system to hook up your ipod or computer to. The place is very private and has a huge deck off the back for relaxing/chilling after surfing. short drive to town but still close enough to get what ever you need. It's also just around the corner from live to surf if you need to rent surf gear.
