About Rebecca Sharp

Our Summerisle Cottage was purchased and renovated as our family escape in 2009. Three generations of our family use the cottage to escape to the wild west coast for surfing, hiking and just being together as a family. Come and see why travellers love Tofino!

Rebecca Sharp purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Rebecca Sharp chose Vancouver Island

Welcome to an amazing, clean, landscaped cottage with loft! Privacy, beachcombing and surfing and whalewatching opportunities abound. Relaxing on our sunny, luxurious deck is always an option... The west coast of Vancouver Island is so unique in its beauty and diversity between the ocean and the surrounding mountains. We bought this property to enjoy the best of both worlds.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is set in the forest and is a short walk to spectacular Chesterman's Beach. There are several other beautiful beaches and a National Park within a short drive. We are located a 5 minute drive to the village, which has specialty shops, grocery, liquor and a wide selection of gum boots to be found.

What a great spot for a weekend getaway! My fiancé and I had such a relaxing weekend with our dog, walking the beaches of Tofino!

We were walking distance from several beautiful beaches and the botanical gardens which were even more romantic with a dusting of snow. It rained and snowed for most of our visit but the cottage was a perfect haven for us to stay warm by the wood stove and listen to the rain on the skylights. We were even a couple steps from a Super Bowl event which was a great way to chat with young locals and get some tips on several hidden beaches to visit!

The cottage provided everything we needed to have a carefree, relaxing weekend and we are excited to come back and visit it season to season.

Cozy with convenient location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with a group of 6 aged 16 and up. The location was great for access to the beach by foot(10 min or less) or car and right on the bike path to tofino. You can get rental surf gear only a short way down the road and walk to jaimies rainforest inn restaurant a couple doors down if you want brunch out or a drink in the evening. WE had smores at the fire pit and set up badminton/ volleyball net on the lawn. Good facilities: BBQ, outdoor dining table on deck, laundry and great outdoor shower for after surfing. The kitchen is well equipped and the cabin with queen loft, bedroom with queen and second room with single over double bunk provided adequate room for us and the layout was intimate. We warmed up with a fire in the wood stove one night.The cabin is quiet inside: you can hear the roadway from the deck as it is not far off pacific rim highway: this did not bother our group but if you want dead quiet in your Adirondack chair, it might. I would book again.

Lovely, warm cottage in great location

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here. The cottage was very clean, well equipped and tastefully decorated. We utilized the fire pit every night (fire wood is provided) and there was a beautiful back yard for the kids to run around in.

Location is wonderful. Chesterman beach, surf + bike rentals, Tofitian Coffee, and Tacofino are all a 7-10 min walk away.

Rebecca was a very gracious host and even mailed me my sunglasses after I had left them there.

Will DEF stay here again when we return to Tofino.

Lovely cottage in the rainforest

  • 5 of 5

Don't let the weather worn exterior fool you, the inside of this cottage was lovely. Our family of 5, had plenty of room and felt very much at home. The beds were comfortable and cozy, nice updated fixtures & tiling, stocked kitchen and wood burning stove. My husband and boys surfed every day and loved the warm outdoor shower. The BBQ is great and there is an enclosed lawn area with an outdoor fire pit. I wished we would have brought bikes, as the cottage is near the bike trail into town. This is a great cabin for families, I highly recommend!

Perfect Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This place has the perfect cottage feel and excellent layout. Offers two private bedrooms with a Jack and Jill half bathroom between them. There is a full bathroom off the living room area and a loft above with a bed.

The property is beautifully maintained with a grassy area and a fire pit area that we enjoyed nightly. The outdoor shower with hot water is an excellent way to rinse off after your water activities. The property is private and sheltered by thick tall trees from the Pacific Rim highway. Tacofino taco truck, wild side grill, coffee shop, ice cream, surf and bike rental shops are a short walk away. Tofino is about a 10 minute drive away. Chesterman beach is a 5 minute drive away. We absolutely loved this place and hope to return again. Thank you for making it available for others to enjoy!
