About Julie Hughes or Brian Buckle
Brian and Julie completed construction on this vacation rental in June of 2006. Built by themselves, it was created to provide a comfortable lodging for family and friends when they come to visit in Tofino. It has proven to be extremely well liked by numerous groups and always has repeat guests.
Why Julie Hughes or Brian Buckle chose Tofino
The Abalone Inn is situated on an amazing 2 acre property that is completely surrounded by trees which makes it very private but still very close to the beach. You feel like your in your own little paradise here surrounded by ancient cedars. Still lots of sun on deck and you can here the surf.
What makes this House unique
The Abalone has beautiful fir logs supporting the ceiling which were salvaged and milled by Brian and Julie. The ceilings are cedar tung and groove and the floor is solid hardwood. There is a beautiful large jetted tub in the master bathroom to provide that spa- like atmosphere.

Cozy and quiet
In the trees off the main road. Just a short walk to Chesterman Beach. We slept 7 people there comfortably. Hot tub was hot and kitchen well stocked. Would come back again!
Perfect surf getaway!
Super clean and had everything we needed for a great weekend of relaxation, surfing and fun!
The Property was very private and ideal to enjoy the forest and short walk to Chesterman Beach.
We were two couples. The cabin was comfortable for 4 and we enjoyed the hot tub. We had two surprises: First. there was no shampoo or conditioner and the small rounds of soap were inadequate for a shower or bath. This is unacceptable given the nightly rate charged. Second, the book instructions stated that internet access was from 3 p.m. onward. This did not work well for us because we wanted to go on the internet in the early morning to decide our plans for the day. It would have been better if we were given a choice of time for the internet. Apart from that, we enjoyed our stay.
We appreciate any feedback.
Our vacation rental rates are a great value considering it has 3 bedrooms, a hot tub on a large spacious deck and a jacuzzi tub in the master bathroom.
We have a fully equipped kitchen and have a washer and dryer for your convenience.
We provide hand and facial soaps that are never fully used. We do not provide shampoo or conditioner as it comes in small plastic containers.
Our internet is working perfectly and can be used 24 hours per day.
Please email, text or call us if you have any questions when staying with us. Our phone #s are provided in guest info booklet.
We are more than happy to answer questions that will help you have the most comfortable stay possible.
Well appointed cottage in a great location
The cottage is comfortabel and well equiped including gas barbeque and hot tub. The beds are good, so are the bathrooms and the kitchen
Perfect little cabin stay for our family!
This is a very clean and comfortable accommodation. We really enjoyed the hot-tub on the deck as well as the heated outdoor shower. A 5 minute walk to Chesterman's beach, which the kids really enjoyed. Super private with trees all around, feels like you are nested in the forest. Well stocked kitchen with all the tools that you need, as well as lots of extra towels and linens. The upstairs master bathroom is large and gorgeous. We visited with our 2 toddlers and 2 babies, but you could easily accommodate a family with kids plus grandparents or another couple. We put 2 playpens in the master bathroom (need to cover the lovely skylight if you do this); any of the bedrooms are large enough for a playpen also. The bedrooms have good blinds that keep it really dark! The owners were very responsive to email/text leading up to our stay. We would stay here again :)
Lovely place to stay in Tofino!
We went up for my 25th birthday with a group of girls. The place was absolutely beautiful! Very easy to get to, great location, and the house itself was everything we could have asked for. Clean, spacious, private, and convenient. Would definitely stay here again :)
beautiful beaches, excellent hiking, Pacific Rim National Park, whale, bear, wolf and couger watch and tours
surf lessons, kayak rentals and guided tours, bird watching
