“Quiet, private and BEAUTIFUL”
Reviewed 29 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

This cottage was just what we were looking for. Cozy, clean and equipped with all that you might need. The scenery from the house is excellent!

Verne and Gisele are a super nice couple and very helpful!

We were four people staying and the sofa beds worked out fine.

The Internet connection was fast!

“A True Gem”

Me and my wife stayed here for the weekend and I must say this place is a real gem.
We have stayed at numerous places in Tofino over the years and hands down this one shines above the rest.
The cabin is immaculate , has everything you need plus more.
You have total privacy around you and a view to die for.
Vern and Gisele made you feel right at home and the night before we where leaving Vern said no need for regular checkout time as they had no one booking in.
Thanks for sharing this piece of paradise.

“Best Stay in Tofino - Private with great access to the city!”

Highly Highly Recommend! Would definitely stay here again - maybe for a month next time.

The couple that runs this B&B was easy to get a hold of to reserve the rental and they were very helpful during our stay. The recommended local restaurants and provided pamphlets for other attractions. Their house is just up the road but they kept to themselves unless we needed them.

The cabin and property were excellent! The cabin has been meticulously constructed and maintained, it was also very clean and had everything we needed - towels, kitchen dishes etc, and many books! The bed was VERY comfortable and the view can't be beat! We spent a lot of time in the folding chairs on the waterfront and could have had a camp fire there as well. There was also laundry facilities in the basement if we needed. Internet was free and very reliable.

The cabin is located a short walking distance to town - many restaurants and attractions. There is also a gas station directly across the road if needed.

We loved the view and the atmosphere in the cabin - no complaints!!!

“Amazing!”
Reviewed 12 June 2012 for a stay in June 2012

I stayed here this weekend with my partner. The cabin was hand built by the owner, on his property. The cabin is incredible. We had the cabin just the two of us, although you could easily have 4 people stay and not be remotely cramped.
The cabin is so secluded, with the most spectacular views. No one could see into the cabin, we had the blinds open the whole time. We built a fire on the private pebbled beach area on the Friday night, using the big BBQ on the decking, we even had their gorgeous dog Rocky keep us company!
The bathroom is all fitted professionally, and the shower is suprisingly good from what you would anticipate in a hand built cabin! Better than some hotels I've stayed in.
I can't rate this place high enough. And the owners were amazing!! On Saturday I realised I didn't have an adaptor for my UK hair straighteners. My partner asked the owner, and he drove over to his daughter's just to borrow one for me!
I didn't want to leave, the bed was so comfortable, the cabin itself amazing, and the ocean view incredible.
In the morning the sun comes into the bedroom as the skylight doesnt have a blind, so take an eye mask or you'll be up early, thats the only thing my partner would have changed as he would never wear one.
The cabin is also really clean, you honestly couldn't ask for more from this couple. LOVED it - best birthday weekend ever, largely down to the cabin being a total Dream!
