Reviewed 23 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

First time staying in Tofino. Enjoyed the sunrise views from the cabin. Perfect place if you are looking for a relaxing quiet getaway.

This is a beautiful cottage in a perfect location. Waking up to an amazing view of the bay is fabulous. The cottage is warm and spacious and very private. Fully functional kitchen and cosy bathroom with plenty hot water. Shops, restaurants and beaches close by.
Lovely owners who were very welcoming and helpful and a pleasure to be greated by their lovely dog, rocky.

Five fabulous nights in a warm, sunny July at Ocean Dream, proved to be the highlight of our holiday. The house has great character and fab views from the deck and through the enormous windows. Ate locally caught salmon and halibut on the bbq. Loved evening fires on the beach. Watched the Orca swim past. Friendly and helpful hosts made for a great stay.

A lovely characterful house with amazing views over the water, beach access and BBQ. Very clean, comfortable and tasteful accommodation. The owners could have not been more helpful and pleasant. Also within walking distance of the town and all the amenities. Would definitely go again!

First of all we would like to say the hosts, Gisele and Verne Bruhwiler are the most amazing accommodating people that make the stay so great. This incredible getaway has been our choice for over three years. There is something to be said about the incredible cabin with it's great character and very unique design with an amazing view of the sound. We have typically visited in the fall; this time was in spring, either time fires are (permitted) on the beach and they are a blast with the mountain views and the protected surroundings. The stars were amazing. This quaint location provides a solitude comforting relaxed atmosphere. You are so close to town which is a huge plus. A stroll into town is very quick, a must do to get to fine cuisine. The shower and bathroom are a energy recharging experience every time. The art work, figurines and books are also something to mention. Incredible to say the least you should definitely see those for yourself.

Fantastic wooden cabin built by the owner and his sons. We stayed for a week travelling around the area by day and sitting on the veranda in the evening. Lots of bald eagles flying around and chased by the crows; humming bird and racoon in the garden. Short walk to Tofino town or minutes in car. Cabin had everything we needed, bar a hair dryer!! The owner Verne is a real character, do ask to see his tree felling video, truly amazing.

“The Perfect spot”
Reviewed 12 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Very comfortable cottage, with large windows overlooking the inlet. The kitchen facilities are easy to cook in, and the view spectacular. It was great to sit on the deck and watch the boats and listen to the birds. Easy to walk to the grocery store and restaurants. Great base to explore from!
