Vancouver Island Condo Rental Photos and Description

Stunning modern 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath with ocean view and full amenities.

This is our family's vacation home, and while we absolutely welcome our guests, we are not running a volume business. Our sincere apologies if sometimes our responses are slow. We receive a lot of inquiries surprisingly, and just not able to get back to everyone it seems sometimes.

It is a modern 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath home featuring a master suite with king bed, ensuite with shower and his/her sinks. Second queen bedroom with ensuite, jacuzzi soaker, and his/her sinks. Third bedroom with custom built (very comfortable) single bunks for two adults. Fully equipped kitchen with stemware, appliances, and full assortment of useful kitchen tools. Gas fireplace, high quality home furnishings, full entertainment center, wifi, and a telescope. Large ocean view patio with seating, table, and barbeque. Home has high vaulted ceilings and is of post-and-beam style construction. You will not be disappointed!

About James McDonald

Everyone in the family are born and raised Vancouverites with outdoor passions. This is our family's vacation home, and while we absolutely welcome our guests, we are not running a volume business. Our sincere apologies if sometimes our responses are slow. We receive a lot of inquiries surprisingly, and just not able to get back to everyone it seems sometimes.

James McDonald purchased this condo in 2008

Why James McDonald chose Vancouver Island

Ucluelet is one of the most amazing settings in the world and just happens to be in our back-yard and offers activity options to suit everyone in the family. Although dad would tell you nothing but the surfing really matters.

What makes this condo unique

The view, the view, and the view. And while the view is second to none, we have taken very special care to ensure our home away from home is a home in all regards.

Modern, well-equipped condo with great sea view

  • 5 of 5

My husband, adult daughter, and I spent a delightful week hiking and kayaking in the Ucluelet-Tofino area and returning each evening to this spacious, airy condo with great views over the Pacific, a large, sunny deck, fireplaces, and a barbecue we used most nights. The space is ideal for a family of for two couples. We hope to return.

Oceanfront tranquility!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I, including two kids aged 11 and 8, just returned from almost two weeks staying in this oceanfront condo in Uclulet. The pictures of the property itself are accurate but it is hard to capture the view that you have from the deck. It is stunning. We spent many a lunch time and early evening having a bite to eat or a drink just enjoying the view or taking in the sunset, or on the first morning that we woke up in the condo, the deer just outside! The third bedroom is a little on the cosy side but our kids took turns and seemed to manage just fine.

The property itself has everything you need including a barbeque on the deck and was clean and tidy when we arrived. All questions that I had were answered by the owner, both in advance and during the stay, or a contact in Ucluelet who helps to address any needs locally.

I would definitely recommend the property. It was ample room for the four of us, you could probably comfortably sleep 6 and I noticed that there is a cot bed for an additional person to make 7 if needed.

There is a lot to see and do near by. A lot of information is provided in the condo. I would recommend surfing lessons with Relic and whale watching with Spyhop. The Black Rock resort is just around the corner, which is great for a drink and they do have a very good restaurant, Fetch. There are lots of local food options for both lunch and dinner. And Tofino is about a 30 minute drive away so more options there.

We would definitely come back.

Great accommodation for families

  • 5 of 5

Our 2 families (4 adults & 2 children) had a wonderful long weekend staying in this condo! The pictures and description of this listing accurately reflect the spacious condo and wonderful views. Most of the areas were generous, although the kids room with 2 bunk beds was small and dark, but they were only in there to sleep. Everyone said how comfortable so the beds and pillows were! The kitchen was well appointed with cooking and cleaning supplies. The whole place was well maintained and clean. There were neighbours around but we never heard them so the condo must be built with privacy in mind. We appreciated the telescope and binoculars for spotting birds and whales from the living room. Also the national park pass, clear instructions and files full of information were thoughtful touches. We loved the location, just a few min walk to the beach & Pacific Rim Trail and a little further to downtown. Close enough to walk or bike. We had an awesome trip with Jamie's whale watching adventures - saw grey and humpback whales, lots of sea lions chasing herring, probably 50 bald eagles, and numerous other birds. It was March so we took their larger boat with heated deck and really appreciated being able to get out of the wind and rain. One night we walked over to the Black Rock resort and had a lovely dinner with 300 degree views of dramatic seas and the sunset. Loved the Pacific Rim Trail from end to end!

Great Condo!

  • 5 of 5

Just back from 5 wonderful days in Ucluelet and our stay at this very beautiful, modern condo. This unit is fully equipped and comfortable with everything anyone would need, right down to the complimentary Pacific Rim National Park Pass. It is a great location; right on the Wild Pacific Trail and a 10-minute walk to the Blackrock or 15-minute walk to downtown and the Co-op. It is very quite, the only sound we heard when leaving the condo was the waves crashing, Sea Lions barking and the foghorn off in the distance. We were a party of 6, 4 adults and 2 children and there was lots of room for everyone. The views from this condo out to the Pacific Ocean are amazing! Hopefully we will be back very soon.

Experience of a lifetime!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is exactly as described! The photo's in the listing are spot on! Not only was this Condo VERY clean and well maintained, the whole surrounding area was absolutely beautiful & pristine! Priceless views at no additional charge! I conversed with the owner a number of times prior to our arrival & he was very professional, helpful & quick to respond! I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a spacious & very modern condo to rent! I took my Dad to Ucluelet this past summer for 3 days of salmon & halibut fishing to celebrate his 60th B-Day. Mom came too so I really wanted to find a perfect place to stay while we were there so the 3 of us would be comfortable & in the event that my mom would opt out of the fishing, she could enjoy herself at a luxury condo with lots of room and spectacular views! I hit the nail right on the head by picking this place! My folks were SUPER impressed and enjoyed every part of it! Turned out mom came out fishing everyday with us though as the action was non-stop & we limited out everyday with monster halibut, chinook salmon & coho salmon! We brought home 500 lbs of fish!!!! Whatever it is that is taking you to Ukee, if you are looking for a first class condo to rent, look no further!

Pacifica is located within easy walking distance to the shops, restaurants, and amenities of Ucluelet. The amenities include the nearby community centre and the Blackrock Resort. Charter fishing is a very popular activity as is surfing and both can be enjoyed year round. Famous and stunning Long Beach is a 10 minute drive North of Pacifica.
