About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

Nestled within the the hemlock trees, this private modern one bedroom cottage is only a few minutes walk to Chesterman Beach and Cox Bay. The suite is perfectly suited for two, with a custom handcrafted queen size bed, built from locally sourced timbers. We can however accommodate up to four guests, with a queen sofa bed in the living room (we also provide a portable crib for your little one, because we know you have enough things to pack when you have a toddler!).

Amenities include private entrance with parking, an indoor shower as well as a private outdoor shower for after your surf, a fully equipped kitchen, TV, cable, DVD, and the luxury of radiant floor heat throughout the entire cottage. Our family lives on the property in a separate house, so we're just a short stroll away should you need anything

About Lisa

Pete was born and raised in Tofino, and Lisa moved here over 13 years ago from Toronto. We have a 9 year old golden retriever named Nai'a, and our son Asher came along in 2010 to make us a family of 4. Pete's a professional surfer, often traveling to remote locations around the world, but he still insists that his home is the most beautiful place he's ever been. Lisa, Asher and Nai'a spend less time traveling, because honestly, who needs to take a vacation when you live in the most beautiful place on Earth. We look forward to sharing our little piece of paradise with you.

Lisa purchased this cottage in 2013

Guestbook comments from the owner

Absolutely the best place we could chosen to stay in Tofino! There was nothing missing from this beautiful hideaway. It was quiet, well-furnished and spotlessly clean. The bed is super comfortable; linens delicious and kitchen totally equipped for whatever you may want to cook.

Only minutes from South Chesterman beach and about 10 minutes from the delightful village of Tofino. Next time we will stay at least a week.

Many thanks, Lisa, for your welcome and attention.

I have already recommended your property to many friends and relatives.

It was just like the photo on the internet, nicely decorated, neat & tidy, very comfortable bed, well appointed kitchen with island. Close to downtown Tofino, all the amenities you could want at your fingertips. Enjoyed being close to Chesterman Beach. Will come back in the springtime! Thank you Lisa!

Cute Bungalow

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay there. My husband and I and our daughter and two year old son stayed there. The place was very clean and outfitted with every thing we needed. They even had a bed and highchair for the little one. Wifi was great. It was close to Chesterman Beach which is a beautiful beach to walk on. We would definitely stay there again.

The Hideaway was comfortable, clean, quiet, amidst trees and a short walk to Chesterman Beach. It was an ideal place to stay. The hosts were reachable if needed and respected guest privacy. I would return to this spot, thank you.

Wonderful Stay at Hemlock Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

We love the Tofino-Ucluelet area and booked Hemlock Hideaway for a 3 night stay at the beginning of November. It was the perfect getaway with the cottage tucked away on a quiet street in a great location and was easy to find. It was a quick 5 minute walk to Chesterman Beach, a quick drive north into Tofino, and a short drive south to the beautiful Pacific Rim National Park. The cottage was spotless and well equipped with everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The only item missing was a large pot for cooking fresh crabs. Chesterman Beach is a great place to walk or just spend time watching the surfers catch the waves. We headed into Tofino where we enjoyed wonderful meals at some of our favourite restaurants including Sobo, The Fish Store & Oyster Bar for their seafood chowder, and who couldn't resist stopping at Tofino Brewing Company for some excellent craft beer. Just outside of Tofino, check out amazing takeout food at Wildside and Tacofino. We also enjoyed exploring the beaches in Pacific Rim National Park... make sure you check tide tables before heading to some of the beaches. In Ucluelet, we loved our walk on the Wild Pacific Trail. There's free parking at the starting point of Lighthouse Trail, and despite the shorter distance of 2.6 km, make sure you allow extra time for checking all the incredible viewpoints found along the trail. Oh! and, and don't forget to include a stop at the bakery cafe in Ucluelet called Zoe's for delicious food. Thank-you Hemlock Hideaway... Highly recommended to anyone looking for a quiet retreat in a beautiful setting.

Awsome Vacation Destination

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at Hemlock Hideaway. It was a home away from home with everything we needed ....a five minute walk from the ocean at Chesterman Beach.... The house was modern, clean, spacious, and comfortable. If you plan to go to Tofino, this is the place to stay. When our next travel westward, we will stay again!
