Located in the quiet neighborhood of Jensen's bay, your home is situated overlooking the bay with spectacular vistas featuring majestic Meares Island and the waterways of nearby Tofino. Expect to see ocean and shoreline wildlife, including eagles and many other bird species, including our daily hummingbird visitors right on the property, while enjoying your BBQ on the wrap around sundeck. Also view from within the home with its unique vaulted ceiling, and panoramic view. Many other bird species, and occasional bears to be seen foraging out on the mudflats, we've even had some very rare wolf sightings in the clearing just 100m across the bay.

The home is situated on beautiful Jensen's Bay, just a short walk, or a quick drive over to world-famous Chesterman beach, with its unique tidal features, shore walking, surfing, storm watching, and enjoying the all the beauty of the west coast.

Tofino municipal bylaw requires a caretaker to be living in the property. There is a basement suite with occupants.

For your supplies and further adventures, Tofino town is just 5 kilometers down the road, with plenty of restaurants, shops, bars amenities, stores and tour operators, where you can charter your fishing, kayaking and whale watching trips, and rent your surf gear. Take our "Cruiser" bikes to enjoy the bike path to and from town.

We had an amazing 2 weeks staying at the tofino panorama. The house was spotless and the perfect choice for our family reunion. Dane and Pat were very responsive and the perfect hosts. Tofino is a beautiful place to visit and I can't wait to go back!

Spring 2017 three-night retreat at Tifino jewel

  • 5 of 5

This home has everything you could want - and more - in a vacation home with waterfront views. The tidal influence on Jensen Bay provides a view of the water at high-tide and mudflat experience at low-tide. The low tide allows many shore and wading birds an opportunity to forage, as well as bear, wolves and other critters. The privacy is outstanding yet still close enough to Tofino restaurants , shops and outfitters. you can easily book whale watching, bear watching and fishing trips within a 10 minute drive. I highly recommend you book this house!

A beautiful home in a tranquil setting with great amenities...and a view to die for!

  • 5 of 5

Dane and Pat have clearly put so much work and love into this home -- you'll notice the beautiful Thai wood furniture and decor throughout, with photo canvases of Tofino nature on the walls. Not only is the home cozy (w/a fireplace!) it's SO quiet...there were four of us city-dwellers and we all commented in the morning that we had slept in far longer than we had in years thanks to the tranquil setting! And the view of the inlet (which you can gaze at from the hot tub) is incredible. It's also a short walk from Chesterman's beach, and the home has surf boards and boogie boards that we used! Also a warm outdoor shower where you can take off your wetsuit. We also used the paddle boards and went for a beautiful paddle through the inlet. The home is immaculate and has all the cooking utensils you'll need (plus oils, etc). The master bedroom is so private -- it's upstairs on its own with an en-suite bathroom, and has its own balcony with beautiful views. We can't wait to rent this place again -- it's quintessential Tofino.

A gorgeous home in beautiful Tofino

  • 5 of 5

The very best reviews already posted are a mirror of our experience - the home was beautiful, spotlessly clean, with stunning views. We arrived during a rather cold spell and the hot tub and in-floor heating were a luxurious treat. The owners were great. Dane was very responsive and helpful. Although we didn't take advantage of it on this trip, the house is equipped with stuff for use outdoors : two paddle boards, 5 surfboards, 4 bikes, 4 heavy duty rain coats, an out door fire pit, and a dock to access the tidal flat. It's a truly great spot.
