Tucked away on a very exclusive 2 acre parcel, sits a fantastic custom built home resting in the Tofino rain forest. This property has all the imagined privacy and interaction with nature possible in Canada’s surfing mecca. This home is currently run as the Slack Tide Inn, a B&B revenue property with a separate entrance and ensuites from the upper floor’s residency.
First, the wood finishes: douglas fir exterior doors, red alder interior doors, birch and red cedar window sills, fir floors, post and beam inside and out. The vaulted ceilings add to the character pieces such as drift wood mirrors and well lite rooms and a 23 x 10 covered outdoor entertainment area. The metal roof and the cedar siding help offset maintenance costs. The location of the property is a fantastic draw. There is a 20 minute walk to inlet tidal flats and a 3 minute walk to the surfing on the Cox bay oceanfront. The UNESCO recognized mud flat biosphere has an international draw. The beaches of the Pacific Rim National Park are minutes away by vehicle or bike. Surfing is across the highway or a short drive to Chesterman Beach.
The Tofino Tourism Booth is at the driveway and a great resource for the guests. There is another area on the property already cleared that you could build a cottage, store the toys, have guests park their recreational vehicles or create other services for guests. There is one parking space but multiple areas to park outside. Great sun exposure on the house and room to put in gardens.
The bed and breakfast maintains a steady revenue stream with further potential that cannot be ignored. Land in the Tofino district is not easy to find and a unique property like this is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Book a showing today and start living the west coast dream with profitable margins. Why have regrets?
Surrounded by the Pacific Ocean, the Strait of Georgia and the Inside Passage, Vancouver Island is one of Canada’s finest island getaways. With its vast wilderness, picturesque peaks, temperate climate and fertile soil, this stunning locale is a paradise for those seeking serenity, natural beauty, and enchanting coastal communities.
Unlike much of Canada, Vancouver Island's weather is mild year-round. Spring comes early, with cherry blossom, tulip, and daffodil blooms lit by sparkling ocean sunsets. Summer is close behind, with the first sightings of migrating whales and local fishermen. In fall, a plethora of farms, vineyards, orchards, cideries, and breweries take local culinary culture to world-class levels. Come winter, cars loaded with kayaks, surfboards, paddle boards, skis, and snowboards come out to play, while golfers teeing off, and joggers taking to the trails remain common sights.
Whatever the season, there’s plenty to enjoy on Vancouver Island.
