Come explore Tofino from our affordable beachfront cabins. Great for couples, families, or even pets!
Clayoquot Sound is one of the most spectacular places on earth, with ancient cedar rainforest bordering on miles of sandy beaches, volcanic rock outcrops, and shimmering surf. The natural beauty resonates deeply with visitors and residents alike.
In such a breathtaking setting it’s easy to see the connection between the choices we make and the impact they have on the planet. We know that the types of soap and cleaning products we use will impact the health of the stream that runs through our property, and that of the ocean that rolls onto the spectacular beach we look at everyday. We know that the amount of fossil fuels we use will have a long-term climate change impact on that very same ocean. We know that the type of wood that we use in construction impacts the hillsides around us.
That’s why we’re committed to making choices that minimize the resort’s eco footprint. After all, our business depends on the health of the environment.
