We’ve certainly been loving the feedback we’ve received about our Oceanfront Cabins.
Originally built in the 1950s our two cabins are definitely arguably the closest accommodation to the waters edge in the area.
Each cabin was completely renovated in 2017. With the cabins being so close to the water’s edge (probably the closest in Tofino) building by laws wouldn’t allow us to increase or change the footprint, which was fine because the location and size was perfect, the layout just needed tweaks to bring out all the potential.
This renovation was a doozy. It is a worthwhile 50 stairs to access the cabins, which means every piece of demo, and every construction supply had to be lugged up and down. Let me tell you, sometimes our staff find bringing luggage up and down is a challenge, these guys were up and down carrying heavy stuff upwards of 50 times a day.
Our owner Denise not only gets her hands dirty when needed, but also has a wicked sense of style. She’s a designer at heart we’re sure! Here’s the details of the project:
We removed a small closet to allow for much needed extra space in the bathroom.
A custom tiled stand up shower replaced the old tub, which had cumbersome headspace.
The kitchen was completely remodeled with a beautiful large window, which invites the rainforest views in.
The kitchen renovation was completed with a moveable island for dining, granite counter tops, and high-end appliances. A dishwasher was also added to make your post dinner clean up easy.
Upstairs in the loft we removed a wall that closed off the bedroom. Opening up the space allows wonderful air flow and the upstairs guests now wake to a beautiful ocean view. This loft is a kid favourite!
The old cabin design featured a wood stove, which was lovely in the colder months. The new design with a gas fireplace now adds wonderful warmth without the bulk and mess.
Finally a 50” smart TV, luxury beds, and all of the luxury touches we pride ourselves in were added.
Post renovation, the cabins maintained their privacy and charm. Now they have a modern design, and all of the comforts you could ever want to make your stay relaxing. Guests fall asleep here to the sounds of the ocean, or stay cozy in bed and take in the power of our winter storms. "Ocean beauty at it's finest." This is an accommodation choice like no other.
