Heron's Perch - Romantic Cottage on Chesterman Beach!

Beachfront cottage in Tofino with patio
Sleep to the sounds of the ocean waves, wake to the smell of old growth forest and the ability to step right onto the stunning Chesterman beach that will give you hours of exploring pleasure, has Canada's best surfing and is rimmed in dramatic Mountains.
The cottage combines all the elements of having the inspiring expanse of shifting light, and horizon, and dramatic sunsets, with being cozy and embracing.

The cottage ideally takes up to 4 people. There is an another unit downstairs with queen bedroom, memory foam pull out sofa and full bath, which can be rented separately, but allows families or couples to travel together, and have a ample and private space to retreat to.
The construction of the house is such that you don't need to tiptoe if you are only renting the upstairs, and the flow of comings and goings is such that everyones privacy is protected. The deck and hot tub that has ocean views and out door shower are for your exclusive use
The bed is super comfortable with down pillows and down comforter. There is a pillow top for those who want a little bit more comfort there is also a fabulous sofa that doubles as a 2nd queen bed. it is firm rather than being a lumpy spring pull out. There is another down comforter under the window seats; which kids absolutely adore sleeping in, as they feel like they are in a tree house.

You can make a fire right on the beach, walk across the sand to the famous Wikininnish Inn to enjoy their world class dinning or indulge yourself at the Ancient cedars Spa.

There are great board games, and comfy reading chairs where you can watch the bald eagles and whales. There are few spots right on the beach as romantic as Herons Perch. We hope to make your stay a treasure of a memory.
Rooms open to patios. Bathrooms include shower/tub combinations.
The recreational activities listed below are available either on site or nearby; fees may apply.

5/5 Excellent

Great spot
Really great property in a fantastic location. Only thing that needs to be addressed is the absence of a BBQ.

5/5 Excellent

Amazing Views & Amazing Host!
Absolutely love the beach side getaway and all of the amenities here. The hot tub after a cold ocean swim was amazing and the place has everything needed to cook and be well. The host was also extremely responsive over messaging and flexible with my requests. Thanks!

4/5 Good

Beautiful location on the beach
Beautiful little place in a great location. Would recommend more for 2 people. Pull out couch was very uncomfortable. Didn't feel it was thoroughly cleaned but overall really enjoyed our stay.

5/5 Excellent

We love Chesterman's! We would absolutely stay here again.
The space is clean and cozy with absolutely everything you need (except wine glasses). I loved the gas fireplace and all the sitting areas. The bedroom is dark and the bed is comfortable with soft sheets and lots of pillow options. I loved having a view of the ocean and being a stones throw from one of my all time favourite beaches made our stay such a treat. I was worried about our visit after reading the last review but we had a wonderful stay, we were so comfortable and loved every moment. I don't agree with most of the previous reviews critiques other than all of the windows could be cleaned. We cleaned some of them ourselves with soapy water and it didn't take long but it would be nice to not have to do that. I think the windows of the cottage and the deck should be cleaned regularly and it's obvious that they aren't. The view is so spectacular and looking through dirty windows takes away from that. However, this wouldn't stop me from returning. I'll just clean them myself if I have to.

3/5 Okay

Accommodation needs some TLC
I'll start by saying I love Chesterman beach. The accommodation is second to the destination. That being said, I have a long list of disappointments with the accommodation, but I'll start with the good. Overall the the cabin is very nice. I love the west coast feel of the vaulted cedar ceilings and the large windows. The furniture is not overly comfortable but adequate. The same can be said for the kitchen, adequate. We didn't find we wanted for much, except some decent wine glasses, but all of the kitchen accessories looked like they may have been picked up at a second hand store, mostly old and not matching, except for the plates. Most of the knives couldn't cut butter hot. The bed was comfortable. Now the bad. The hot tub. There was a tube of test strips which showed the level of chlorine to be undetectable. I discovered the broken chlorine dispenser laying on the concrete pad, so without chlorine and considering the current situation with Covid, we did not feel comfortable using it. Another problem was the gas fireplace. At first it wouldn't light, although I could see the pilot light was lit. I phoned the number listed on the info sheet on the counter. The fellow told me the thermostat was acting up. I finally got the stove going, but it kept going out and reguired constant fiddling. Worst of all the entire place needed a thorough cleaning. Now, I know the west coast is a harsh environment, but I also know the windows in the cabin had not been cleaned in many many months. At first I hought the sealed units may have failed, but no, they were just grafted with dirt. I understand that there is a lot of salt spray, and it must be a constant challenge to keep the windows clean, but why does anyone go to the west coast if not to enjoy the view? I set about cleaning the outside of the tall ocean facing windows, but soon realized that the inside was as filthy as the outside. After an entire roll of paper towels I had a streaky view up as far as I could reach. All the other windows were similarly filthy, particularly the kitchen. The bathroom light fixture was disgusting and missing a bulb. Black mildew was evident on the bathroom blinds and the corners of the floor. The heavy door on the outside shower was hanging by one hinge and presented a hazard. Most of the glass panels surrounding the deck and hot tub were so covered with green algae they were opaque. I have more to say but I appear to have run out of my allotted characters.
