Welcome to our garden! This is a bright, self contained, private, space attached to the back of our home. It includes an outdoor sitting area with custom made sling back chairs, designed and built by your host, John, who openly admits to having a wood working problem. :) The solarium entrance way offers an additional warm, cozy space for chillaxing. The entirely fenced and hidden yard provides the perfect sanctuary right in the heart of Tofino!
Private, clean, convenient, funky and affordable. Full Kitchen and private bathroom.
Your studio suite is totally private. The solarium entrance is also our access to the back yard and gardens therefore is shared with us, your host family. We will do our best to honor your privacy but the yard and gardens are a shared space.
Interaction with guests
Your hosts are local Tofitians with an intimate knowledge of, and connection to Tofino and the surrounding area. We are all outdoor enthusiasts, surfers, kayakers, and foodies. We are more than happy to help answer any questions you may have and help inform and guide your Tofino experience. We are typically out and about a lot and also try to respect your space so you may not see much of us, unless you want to! ;)
Other things to note
Menina is our furry, family friend. She is a gentle, mellow, sweet, loving two year old dog who you may encounter during your stay. She is not a barker or a biter but does love to escape. She is rarely left in the yard but we do occasionally let her back there. Please make sure the gate stays closed and is latched well when you leave! Thank You!
There is no TV in this space. The WIFI info is posted on the fridge.
The stove in the suite is a propane stove.
Just ask if you have any questions or concerns about it!
Considering your hosts/neighbors are non-smokers and have young children, we would really appreciate it if any smoking could be done well away from the windows so it doesn't waft inside our home. No smoking indoors. 10 pm is quiet time around here. Thank you for being mindful about noise, and respecting the family atmosphere :)
We have a self check in system so please feel free to arrive anytime after 3:00 and check yourselves in. Please park on the far right hand side of the drive way to make room for three more vehicles. Go through the gate on the far right of the house to find your unit :) If arriving by bus, an earlier check in can usually be arranged in order to coordinate with the bus schedule. Just ask!
We do compost and recycle! Please help us to limit the amount of waste in the landfill! You will find both a basket for recycling and a compost bucket under the kitchen sink. Please only leave clean recyclables and no meat or cooked foods in the compost please, just fresh veggies and fruit scraps. There are two-usable shopping bags under the sink as well; please use them!
There is unfortunately no fan in the bathroom so please ensure you keep the window open, especially after showering to combat excessive moisture!
And please make sure the gate is always closed and secure when you leave. We occasionally let Menina, our dog, out in the yard. She loves to escape!
Thank you :)
