Create lasting memories at this original post + beam inlet beach home and make it your retreat. Wake to the sunrise peaking over Meares Island, casting a golden hue over the water- from the comfort of your king bed. With ample room (just under an acre) to explore the yard and private beach, the home is spacious for up to 6 guests. Soak in the hot tub, lounge on the outdoor couch (seasonally), check out the vintage decor or the exposed cedar beams - these touches allow the home to stand out. From the house or yard, we have seen orcas, heron, seals and bears. It's amazing. 

As you enter the house, you are met with large windows overlooking the inlet. There is a bedroom on the ground floor with queen bed and forest views. The open concept living room has sweeping ocean views and a 55 inch smart tv that has Netflix, Prime, Crave log in from the TV. There is no cable. Several games, books and playing cards are available for a night in. There is a set of binoculars on the bar cart by the window - keep your eyes open! We have seen orcas, seals, bears, wolves. The kitchen is large enough to have several people cook without starting a domestic and stocked with everything you need to make an epic meal, such as basic spices, immersion blender, mixer, chefs knives. While washing the dishes, enjoy the ocean view.  The dining table has 6 chairs and has an ocean view.

Upstairs is the loft bedroom with king bed. There is a privacy screen to put out if you don't want to be waken by the sunrise. The master bedroom is next, with an incredibly large space.  A cozy chair by the window welcomes you with your morning coffee. A walk in closet has a dedicated work space with desk and chair by the window.  The ensuite attached has a shower. A yoga mat is available. Each room has two robes for lounging.

The house is pet friendly (1 dog max). We provide dog towels, small bed and dog bowls. The property is dog heaven with direct beach access. Please ensure your pup does not chase the wildlife such as shorebirds.

Seasonally there is a great patio couch and table set up outside. We say seasonally as it rains a lot in Tofino and the yard is not covered! There are two Adirondack chairs down by the beach year round. Bring your paddle boards and check the tides - go straight from the house to the water and explore the area. Safety first - wear your life jacket and tell someone you are headed out. The ocean is mighty and is active with boats and currents. Paddle boarding in the ocean is quite different than a lake.

We love a good fire and this fire pit has a beach view! Wood and axe is not provided (due to insurance). In the summer there is often a fire ban in the province, so follow seasonal bylaws. Further instructions will be in the welcome guide.

The house is on septic, so it's important to only flush toilet paper. Flushing other items will clog the pump and result in an expensive repair.
