Nestled in an acre of cedarwood forest, in a small cove, the ocean tide comes in... and goes back out. Islands of dense old growth forest are scattered in the ocean, the Bedwell mountain range and Strathcona peaks poke through the clouds, hundreds of birds nest, bald eagles soar, wolves and bears hunt for fish, curious seals pop their heads up... This is the magical landscape of Cedarwood Cove.

It is a bright studio space of approximately 280sqft with kitchenette/bathroom seperated from living/bedroom space with some loungers and table aswell as a queen bed, and can accommodate two people quite comfortably.

Interaction with Guests
We live onsite most of the time and we love to share the best things to do in Tofino so you can feel like a local rather than a tourist.

We are perfectly located between the major surf beaches, Chestermans beach is a stroll away and is absolutely perfect for surfing, walking, beach dogs, sunsets, stargazing and beach fires. Its a short walk to the local shops for coffee/grocerys/ tacofino/surf lessons and Tofino village shops are just a 5 minute drive away with tons more restaurants, crafts, art, surf shops, good food and plenty of locals to enjoy stories with. Cox Bay is 5 minutes away, and Long Beach 10 minutes away. So much to do outside or simply relax at the cabin, kick back and watch the neverending stream of nature passing by.
Rent a bike from us! There is an awesome bike path from here all the way into town which takes around 10-15 minutes to cycle, and also goes to as Cox Bay just 5mins cycle away. Its the way locals get around rain or shine so leave the car behind. Be kind to the environment!
