About Paul Newman

My wife and I have two daughters and we live in Richmond, B.C.

Paul Newman purchased this townhome in 2007

Why Paul Newman chose Tofino

We began visiting Tofino when a good friend moved there with his family to become a fishing guide. Over the years we visited them and came to enjoy the secluded tranquility of Tofino as well as the many outdoor activities that it had to offer. When we started a family of our own and the opportunity to purchase this unit presented itself, we jumped at it. Over the years it has become a second home to our family. It's a wonderful place to get away from the everyday stresses of life and to lose yourself in nature. Our children have grown up knowing our 'Tofino home' is a place to enjoy the outdoors while exploring the beaches, fishing, prawning, and surfing at Chesterman Beach.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

Owners of the property even provide kitchen items you tend to forget like oil, salt and pepper and some spices. A great place and location. Mich bigger than it appears in the posting. I️ would definitely stay here again.

Bright, spacious two level condo with ground floor balcony. Lovely view and walk to town.

  • 3 of 5

Two senior couples shared this unit for a week. Kitchen and bathroom counters/surfaces were clean however baseboards throughout were caked with greasy dust. So were window blinds. We had to wash the kitchen mats and placemats. Shower curtain stained with significant mildew. Shampoo and bath soap not provided. Night light and living room light out. One dining chair broken. The oven did not heat to temperature. Virtually no useful cable channels (no English Canadian or US news stations for eg). Contacted the owner re cable and he assured us he would upgrade his new service to ensure basic stations would be available but this was not done.

The unit gave the impression that the owner is either inattentive or uncaring.

We enjoyed the area very much but do not feel we received good value for the rental fee charged.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I am sorry to hear that you did not feel that you received good value for your stay at our unit. I assure you that I am a diligent owner who cares a great deal about the unit and the experience that the people have in it. I apologize for any cleanliness issues and will have a word with my cleaner about the specific items that you pointed out. Items such broken chairs, burnt out light bulbs, and problems with the appliances are best dealt with by bringing them to my attention right away so that I can get someone in to sort them out, thus causing minimal affect to your stay. When we spoke about the television channels I believe you wanted access to channels to which I did not subscribe. I discussed it with my cable provider and decided that I cannot just sign up for channels that certain customers prefer. We have a good assortment of channels above the base pack including the sports networks.

Beautiful spot marred by dredging noise

  • 3 of 5

When we arrived this place seemed perfect - even watched a family of river otters cavorting under the aloof stare of a blue heron from the balcony. The view of the inlet, surrounding mountains etc just as in the picture and the apartment is comfortable and well equipped. Slight gripe that the blind in bedroom has no string so cannot be lifted without danger of damaging whole thing so view a bit restricted from there. Then the next morning the early morning nightmare started - at 450 on a Sunday morning and went on until 3, and every day thereafter, except for the day we booked an early boat departure when it started at 630 just as we were leaving - one day it started around 3am. I live under the Heathrow flight path In London and this was worse because it didn't come and go but was right outside our window - to either side of that beautiful view is a working dock and they were dredging it right outside our window.. I like to sleep with window open especially with fresh sea air, obviously we had to close it but it was so loud it made little difference. We still love the flat and the location - evenings were peaceful but it certainly blighted our first day and although we got used to it we got very tired.... tofino as lovely as I remember - sadly I don't think I'll get there again so this was a real shame. Without the dredger I'd recommend this place wholeheartedly - would have felt better if I'd been warned. Be aware the boats come and go from dock so always noise of some kind but it's the constant jcb digging that got to us.
