Overview

About the property

Three bedroom, two bathroom, custom cottage in Tofino, with Mountain Views

Our cottage in the Resort Municipality of Tofino is nestled in a quiet residential area, only minutes walk to the town centre and all its amenities, and only minutes from the pristine beaches at Tonquin Park and Bay.

Our home has been constructed to the highest environmental standards, utilizing timber from sustainably managed forests, insulated using the highest R value available. The solid wood flooring is BC grown, harvested and processed, it is a mix of Fir and Larch from Wynndel near Creston. To conserve water our bathrooms are fitted with efficient dual-flush low-flow toilets and 'on demand' hot water system.

Our home is nestled amongst a forest of veteran red cedar trees, the understory a rich mosaic of species (including Pacific yew) true to our beliefs we have sought innovative ways to co-exist with nature and minimize our ecological footprint on this pristine landscape.

Our cottage is truly a home away from home. We try to keep the kitchen stocked with day to day essentials, like salt, pepper, flour, coffees, teas, foil, clingwrap, so you don't have to buy and bring every single thing you might need. We provide beach and bath towels - and old towels for wiping off a happy dog after a run on the beach!

About Mark

We bought the lot in 2003 and started building our cottage in 2008. We are both professional foresters, self confessed tree huggers and we love the westcoast for the pristine wilderness, temperate rainforest and miles of sandy beaches.

Mark purchased this house in 2003

Why Mark chose Vancouver Island

We hope you enjoy your experience at our home away from home....

Please take nothing but memories

Leave nothing but footprints

Kill nothing but time.

What makes this house unique

The Resort municipality of Tofino built a new trail less than 100 yards from the front door which takes you to Tonquin Bay and along a scenic cliff top walk with beautiful vista's and stunning sunsets, eventually this coastal trail will take you all the way to Mackenzie beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Very nice cabin!

  • 4 of 5

Had a great stay. Mark was so fast at responding to questions and very accommodating. The cabin is very clean and spacious. Lots of options for sleeping arrangements. Easy walk downtown for groceries, farmer's market, and restaurants. Close to a park for the kids to play. The only thing is it's a difficult walk to the beach. The walk is doable and about ten minutes or so but there are steep winding stairs down to the shoreside. We had to turn home and forgo getting down to the beach with the kids and my grandmother; would be easier for adults and older children. We just ended up driving to another beach daily (about 8 mins) where we could park beside the sand.

Overall we had a great experience.

Lovely space

  • 5 of 5

We spent three nights at this lovely, spacious cottage and had a great time. Loved the stroll into town and proximity to bakery, gallery, and the like. Mark and Sara sent us detailed, useful information and responded to all our messages promptly. We'd happily rent this cottage again on a future visit.
