Blue Heron Guest House - Architecturally Designed Waterfront Home

Beachfront vacation home with kitchen and balcony
The Blue Heron Guest House is a 3 bedroom custom built home overlooking Jensens Bay in Tofino. Exceptional wood detailing, skylights, vaulted ceilings, private hot tub overlooking the inlet, gas fireplace, brand new linens and towels and Casper mattresses.

An inlet waterfront retreat situated on 1.5 acres overlooking Jensens Bay directly across from South Chestermans Beach. Jensens Bay is a bird and nature lovers sanctuary. Its a fascinating intertidal zone with the changing of the tides every 6 hours, a constant ebb and flow into Browning Passage. Often with the water out of the bay you can watch in the distance a bear or lone wolf forage across the flats.

There is a small cedar deck on a grassy knoll at waters edge perfectly situated to enjoy a quiet cup of coffee in the early morning dawn. Its also a perfect vantage point for sighting eagles, herons, murganzers, osprey and many other interesting species of birds.

Huge old growth cedars compliment the property, some you will see in the house recreated into majestic posts and beams. Chestermans Beach is ideally located across the road for surfing, beach fires, beach combing, dog walks or simply enjoying an early evening stroll to watch an amazing west coast sunset.

There is a small complex within walking distance for groceries, movies, yoga, surf rentals, fish and chips(Wildside Grill), great coffee/espresso (The Tofitian) and chocolate .....Tofino style. Yum! The Town of Tofino is a short drive in (5 km) so a car would be ideal to have with you.

This rental is perfect for a quiet retreat or family get together - ideally suited for 6 guests. Please contact us for additional rental options.
