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 Tofino

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.

Very comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

The property was very comfortable . However the cleaning lady was not quit finished at 5.00 pm so we had to leave in the rain for another hour. The garbage can key did not fit. And we had visitors show up at the back door the night before we were supposed to leave , we felt sorry for them. But all and all we had a great time again in Tofino and we will be coming back again next year. Thank you Mrs Sharp.

A cozy cottage in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed a lovely stay at Summerisle Cottage during the 2017 Christmas holidays. The cottage is so well set up, with comfy beds and bedding, a cozy living room, and a well-equipped kitchen with plenty of pots, pans, bowls, baking utensils, coffee grinder and more.

It was wonderful to be within walking distance of Chesterman Beach too, and the village of Tofino was just a short drive away and was fun to explore.

Thanks, Rebecca, for helping to make our Christmas holiday a memorable one!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed the cozy cabin for an extended long weekend with family. Great location made it easy to ride our bikes everywhere. Outdoor shower was perfect for cleaning off after surfing. Only recommendation would be to add a hot tub, that would top this place off.

My family and I had a fantastic stay. A cabin in the rainforest was perfect for us.

The cabin was clean, well maintained, and perfect for our family of 5. We'll be back. Tofino is magical.

Perfect family surf getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time with our 4 children. We made great use of the big yard and fire pit.

After being in our wetsuits all day on the beach, the hot outdoor shower couldn't be more perfect!!! The location is super handy with a close walk to food/coffee and surf shops. Thank you for sharing your space with us, we can't wait to return!!!

Surfing is the #1 activity enjoyed by visitors and locals alike. There are many surf rental shops to completely outfit you for the water. Surf's up!
