Why Jim & Liz Grice, Chris Grice, Karen Debi chose Vancouver Island

After building CedarView House we looked for another property that would suit our needs for an additional vacation rental home. The lot we chose was a beautiful 1 acre forested property that met all of our criteria. Located midway between Chesterman Beach and downtown Tofino our AlderView House location was perfect. Because of the size of the lot we were able to build the house well back from the main road and provide a peachful tranqill setting for our vacation rental guests.

stayed last weekend

  • 4 of 5

our stay was very lovely and the house is very nice and clean but we were shoked when we were asked to check out at 10 am and that we would be charged extra if we stayed passed. It was difficult to organaize everything for check out. I am booking for a different house next time with 11 oclock check out eventhough I liked everything else about my stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review on your stay at AlderView House. We are glad that you enjoyed your visit. We have discovered over many years in business that although inconvenient at times the 10 am check out time is necessary to allow time for our cleaning staff to prepare our home for guests that may arrive later that day. Our check in and check out times are posted in our booking confirmations and on our web sites. Jim

Room for six + baby+ dog

  • 5 of 5

Tofino weather did not cooperate. We put on raingear and carried on. Our party of six found Alderview very comfortable and spacious. There are three washrooms and the showers were great. Kitchen supplies were more than adequate and the location is perfect and walkable to downtown Tofino. The hot tub was lovely being nestled against a huge tree. The sauna could have been hotter. The beds were fine and washer and dryer worked well. Internet was fine.

Chris offers an excellent chartered boat ride and despite the weather we enjoyed the hot springs and the offshore boat ride back to town - sans whales as it was not the best time of year. Chris emptied his crab traps on our return and we ate in for two of our nights stay, Crab + both nights. We enjoyed our meal out at the Shelter Restaurant.

Recommended. The price, I think is fair for 4 + people. Take the boat ride and the crab.

Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two teenagers, my father and I stayed here for three days and really enjoyed our stay. The house is lovely, the kitchen is well supplied (well, everything but a decent bread knife to cut the yummy bread from the local bakery) and the hot tub is fantastic. You are close enough to walk to town and Chesterman's beach. The house is just off the main road, but it is quiet and peaceful, and when you are in the hot tub you feel like you are alone in the middle of a forest, very relaxing.

Our daughters loved the loft bedroom with it's own bathroom, until we woke them up in the morning. Put the early risers upstairs, as the noise does drift up.

My father is not in the greatest of health, but managed the one set of stairs to his bedroom on the second floor without difficulty. He really appreciated the comfortable living room when we dropped him off midday to rest as we continued with our explorations of Tofino and the coast.

A great stay in a beautifully designed and appointed home.

What a fantastic stay we had.

  • 5 of 5

My family (2 daughters age 10 and 12, and my wife) had a great time at Alderview. It was our first time to Tofino as a family and we found the house to be very central. Halfway between town and Chestermans Beach it was a short drive to either. The girls and I took a surf lesson from Surf Sisters which was excellent value and surprisingly warm even though the air temperature was only 8 degrees.

We also chartered a trip with Chris which was also excellent value. We tried to see some whales but unfortunately there were not many in the area while we were there. There was a couple of sightings and we went to the area that they were but they remained hidden to us. The great thing about doing a trip with Chris is that we went and saw some Seal Lions, caught a few fish, and did some crabbing during the same trip. We got a little bit of everything a trip on the ocean could be. The house itself was great. Comfy beds, great kitchen, and awesome hot tub. The spiral staircase to the loft Bay 101, 6303 30th Street SE is a long way up and so you did not want to forget something you needed. Not fir super young kids because if the spiral stairs. Overall our best vacation with lots of adventure, excitement and rest as well.

Thanks for a great home away from home.
