About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 3 Baths

Located on spectacular west-facing Chesterman Beach with a mile-long sandy beach, glowing sunsets, and rolling waves at your doorstep. This beautiful home features 2000 square feet of comfortable, luxury living with natural, cedar beams and floor-to-ceiling windows capturing the rugged seascape. Climb to the third floor 'lookout' and view the surf from the 360-degree view and bay window with built-in desk.

The house features three spacious bedrooms, three bathrooms, and an expansive, open plan living/dining/kitchen area. There are two wood-burning fireplaces with firewood, skylights, stain-glass windows, hard wood floors, HOT TUB, large wrap-around deck to watch the sunsets while you BBQ dinner, washer/dryer, fully-equipped deluxe country kitchen with stainless steel appliances, quartz counter tops, four TVs with full cable, DVD,CD/stereo, ipod deck, and Wireless Internet. The glow of candles enhance every room.

The house sleeps up to ten people. There is a pillow top king-size bed in the upper master with en suite bathroom and sliding doors to the oceanfront deck. There is a queen-size bed and a double-size sofa bed in the lower-level spacious master bedroom with rock fireplace and large bay window with skylights. Twin beds are in the third bedroom with a sliding door to a private patio area. A queen size sofa bed is in the living room by the fireplace. A single bed futon is available in the upstairs den/lookout. Please note that the sofa beds and futon are best suited for children.

Just put your feet up and soothe your soul in this comfortable, spacious home, and unwind to the sound and vision of the surf while the fireplace crackles and you leaf through the many reference books available for your leisure. Walk to the Wickininish Inn for fine dining or a massage, explore the sea caves full of sea life at low tide, cycle to Tofino along the village bike trail, visit the botanical gardens, museums, hike the many scenic trails and rain forests, visit the hot springs, view the wildlife or go on a variety of whale-watching expeditions. There is so much to see and do!

Any time of year is the right time. From the fall/winter storm watch with ten-foot waves, to the spring whale migrations, to the long hot summer days on the sandy beach with campfires at night under shooting stars. For a bit of heaven on earth - this is it!

Amazing even in a storm

  • 5 of 5

We anticipated the weather to be stormy for the time that we were there and were cautious on the drive up. Upon arriving the view from the dining room took my breath away! The house was way bigger than I expected. With a large open kitchen, dining room and living room where you could look out at the ocean. Watching the waves and the brave surfers was a highlight! Point being, even in stormy weather the view and this property is incredible so don't let that deter you, and storm watching is really neat!

Meters from the beach we walked along the shoreline-make sure you bring a rain jacket. I was super impressed and happy to find gum boots in the garage that we could borrow! :) very handy.

I had a room downstairs which felt like my own suite. Beautiful rock fireplace and big windows and besy of all, the bed was sooo comfy. Really nice pillows, super comfortable bed which I was very grateful for.

There are 3 bedrooms and a really neat little office area which could also sleep a couple people so there is plenty of space in this giant house. Did I mention it is also immaculate?! Super clean. 3 bathrooms. Washer/dryer. Feels secluded but it's only a few minute drive down the road before you hit restaurants and stores.

I highly recommend and would return in a heartbeat!!

Kritur and company

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful 4 day getaway and reunion with family and friends. The house was perfect! On the beach it allowed us ready access for leisurely strolls, playing in the surf and an evening bonfire. The house was well equipped, comfortable and relaxing. We brought all we needed to make a thanksgiving meal with all the fixings but it was unnecessary. All we needed was there including a stockpot for soup. A wonderful spot for memory making!

Seascape is the BEST

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic time. We have been to Tofino many times but Seascape is now on the top of our list Of where to stay . The home has everything you need and so comfortable. Stunning views. View from the master bedroom is priceless. We will be back!

Love the location!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect house for our extended family (two brothers, their wives, and our sister) vacation. We all agreed staying on Chesterman Beach was worth the extra money. The house was comfortable and had everything we needed.

Perfect family stay

  • 5 of 5

Myself and my husband, my parents, and my sister and her husband (plus our dogs) had a wonderful time at this beautiful house. The best feature is the location - right on Chesterman Beach with amazing views out to the Pacific. There was enough space for us all to spread out and the beds were especially comfortable. The house had everything we needed, and it was great coming in from the ocean to shower outside before heading up to the deck for a hot tub! We especially appreciated that our dogs were welcome, and they had a great time on the beach as well. We'd all love to come back!

Heaven on Chesterman Beach

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Chesterman Beach for over 20 years and have experienced a lot of different accommodations. For the last 10 years we've enjoyed renting a stand alone house because of the privacy and the fact that we can cook. We've always rented right on the beach because of the access and while it is more money than staying on the other side of the street or on the inlet side of Tofino we feel it is well worth it. There are a number of rentals on this stretch but many of them lack character and don't look nearly as good in real life as in the staged online photos. Not Seascape. In comparison to most of the properties we've stayed in it has an exceptionally well equipped kitchen, is spacious, well laid out and the owners really strive to make it a beautiful home rather than a "vacation rental shell". Another thing that sets Seascape apart from others is that it has jaw-dropping views not obstructed by trees. The sunsets are amazing and you get the beautiful sunshine during the day. Other highlights include the huge wood-burning stone fireplace, a small but well maintained hot tub, easy access to the beach and complete privacy. There are no other accommodations on the property.

When staying in or around Tofino one has to remember that it is somewhat remotely located which means that renting a house there is not like renting a vacation house near a major city center. Many of the properties for rent are older and in various stages of updating (or not). Some are better than others. While Seascape is not a "new, sleek and sexy" property you can tell the original owners had it built for their needs and that they loved it very much. Maret and Lyle have taken this to heart and have continued to update it and make it a warm, lovely retreat and outstanding vacation rental.
