Chesterman Beach Fine Art Vacation House - Walking Distance to North Chesterman

Family-friendly vacation home in Tofino
Built in the early 2000’s, our 1100 sq ft open-concept family home was designed to maximize observation of nature and yet make one feel cozy and sheltered from the elements. Vaulted ceilings and ample windows allow lots of natural light into the house. There are sheer curtains that provide privacy but no black out curtains which allows you to observe where the sun, moon and stars are located in the skies. We are located in a quiet residential neighborhood. Nestled in the trees, you can hear the sound of the ocean with a secluded beach path minutes away from spectacular Chesterman Beach. We are now opening up to offer visitors a unique experience to explore nature and culture at the same time. Our home features a collection of original oil paintings and watercolors of the region painted over the last decade with a self-guided exhibition, just as you would find in a major art museum. These paintings feature different scenic landmarks of Clayoquot Sound and give visitors a unique experience and hopefully a deeper appreciation of all the surrounding nature.

In the evenings, get warm and cozy by our natural gas fireplace in the sunken living room, play somemusic and enjoy sipping some wine while taking in a large format oil painting of the rainforest.

Fall asleep on one of the 2 twin beds in the upstairs loft bedroom where lots of windows showcase the trees and starry night skies and allow you to follow the path of the moon through the night. The cozy master bedroom shares the double-sided gas fireplace with the sunken living room and has a queen bed. All our beds have comfortable sheets and duvets.

Our cedar deck comes with a propane BBQ and outdoor hot shower. The bathroom comes with heated floors, bath tub, shower and towels. We offer a complimentary bar of locally made soap from Clayoquot Sound but please bring your favourite bath and beauty products for your own use. We have a hairdryer for guests to use.

The kitchen with custom fir cabinetry is fully equipped with cookware , blender, coffee maker, salt and pepper etc. Dish cloths and dish soap are also provided.

We encourage sensible use of linens and towels. Recycling, biodegradable garbage bags and composting are available here.

The house is perfectly suited for 4. However, we also have a double futon couch in the living room if you are a family of 5 and can provide a portable crib and high chair upon request.

The artist’s studio is in a building adjacent to the house. We are a family with young children and we live on the property in the studio and also in a suite downstairs. We are usually outdoors but occasionally you can hear the sounds of our studio grand piano floating in the air. We value your time, enjoyment and privacy during your vacation and will not be interacting with you much during your stay but should you need anything please don’t hesitate to let us know.

Please note this rental is not suitable for those looking to party. We live in a quiet residential neighbourhood with wonderful neighbours and quiet times in place.
We're all here to "listen to the loons instead of the tunes."
We are also a licensed Short Term Rental business in Tofino operating under license number # 20170222

4/5 Good

Spent 2 days at this place. Overall it was perfect for what we needed and the price was right.not having access to the hot tub wasn’t a big deal. The place had all the basic necessities and was comfortable. We spent most of the time outside so the place was used only early in the morning and before bed. Cheap place and close to the beach . 5 min walk along a trail. I’d stay again.

5/5 Excellent

A Safe Getaway Amidst These Difficult Times
Property was easily located. We found the cottage exceptionally clean with enough amenities available to prepare all our food items. Loved the double sided fireplace, living room to master bedroom. Would like to see the following: A rail of some sort for the stairs to assist when stairs slippery and wet Upstairs bedroom - garbage receptible and a mirror for hair, makeup etc. Other than that we enjoyed our stay and would recommend. A lovely short walk to the beach and other trails.

4/5 Good

Great getaway
The short 10 minute walk to the beach is really what makes this property so great! Having access to a full kitchen is really nice and it is well equipped with everything you need. The house itself is really quite big and would be ideal for a family or two. It was almost too big for just 2 of us but realistically you could sleep 6-8 people with all the couches and beds.

4/5 Good

Great location
This spot can't be beat. Easy walk to the best beach in Tofino. Could use some updates but great price for location.

4/5 Good

Great beach getaway
Our stay was quiet, safe and exactly what we hoped for. Our family of four had plenty of space and loved the walk to the beach from the rental.
