Nestled in an acre of cedarwood forest in a cove just you and the calming ocean tides, dotted with islands of cedar forest, and the surrounding snow capped Bedwall mountain range... Thousands of birds, soaring bald eagles, and if you are really lucky some wolves and the odd bear living on the island opposite hunting salmon and crabs... This is the magical landscape of CedarWood Cove.

Interaction with Guests
If we are not at work or in the ocean, we will be 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 absolutely love to hear all about your adventures, but we also value your privacy. Airbnb provides a unique experience unlike hotels, which allows connection with people all over the world. Whether its sharing a fire pit under the stars or chatting on the deck under an umbrella, or a quick hello/goodbye we are pretty easy going and laid back and adaptable to your needs. Honeymooners, we always give privacy and lots of space and are very considerate of your special time together.
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!

We loved staying at Michelle and Alan's place. We were made to feel at home and were cloaked in the serenity the place has to offer, making our reunion with friends a weekend we will remember forever. We also participated in yoga with Michelle, and for two busy mom's, the practice freed our achy joints and was a wonderful way to wind up the weekend! We will definitely book with them again if/when we are back in Tofino! Thanks guys!!
Michelle and Alan, are wonderful hosts. Friendly, kind and gracious. They made our group of six feel very welcome and were very helpful in getting us prepped before we arrived - lots of messages and communication!
The house was well setup, comfortable and had everything we needed and then some. The views are stunning. The Standup Paddle Boarding is a must-do! Our group had so much fun playing around in the water and Michelle and Alan were great teachers.
We would all highly recommend Cedarwood Cove as your Tofino go to and we can't wait to come back!
Welcome to paradise!!!! We had an amazing stay in Tofino. Michelle and Allan made us feel very welcome, always willing to help and give advise. My two sons (5&7y) could help Michelle gardening and had the time of their live. The views from the house were indescribable beautiful and kept changing with the hour. Would definately want to go back here. It's one of these places which you hope can be kept a bit secret.
Place was as described and right on the water front. I live in Victoria so already knew (and can confirm) that this is a greta location. Very clear and friendly instructions and the place was great. Thanks so much
Michelle and Alan were very welcoming. Their emails were warm and inviting in tone. They provided lots of valuable information on places to hike and places to eat. Their home was equally warm and inviting. There were six of us in the house and it was a perfect fit. The vista was beautiful, the waters, calm and somewhat magical with the changing tides. All in all a beautiful few days in Tofino in an awesome home.
Michelle and Alan were excellent about providing information about the rental and always quick to respond to our inquiries. They were welcoming and greeted us warmly (by text!) even though they were away when we were visiting. The home was clean, comfortable, and well-stocked with what we needed. We felt very at home. We are looking forward to visiting again!
Michelle and Alans home is in the perfect place to come and relax . Stunning views of the inlet right from there porch and luckily while we were there we had the chance to watch the amazing flight of the shore birds . Thank you Michelle & Alan for an amazing stay.

I'm Michelle and I'm a Registered Holistic Nutritionist, Bodyworker and am credited with Yoga Alliance RYT200 and taught Yoga in Vancouver for 2yrs whilst at school. My passion is for healing and holistic health through food, touch, movement, love and laughter all washed down with plenty of cake :) I offer my services at Cedarwood Cove and practice various massage & bodywork treatments to suit your needs and mood. I provide organic homemade breakfast supplies for all guests, and we try and grow as much food as possible, fish and gather the fruits of nature. I'm always grateful to talk nutrition with guests and have lots of handy tips on food and health aswell as providing private consultations if required. I'm also a qualified Stand up Paddle instructor (Paddle Canada) and urge you to try out SUP from the luxury of the private jetty to the water! I love to share laughs and fire pits with guests, I also know the value of solitude and quiet.
Alan my husband runs a business in Victoria renting bikes, scooters and motorbikes and so commutes a lot between Victoria and Tofino. He is an active member in the mountain biking community and is often found hardcore biking up roots and shoots all over Victorias finest mountain bike trails. He is the outdoor adventure guy, with a keen eye for safety and a dangerous lust for risks. He loves to surf and play in the ocean and is ready to share his passion with friends, guests and anyone else willing to jump in the Pacific! He is the one to ask to fix your bike, teach you how to do a wheelie, assist with surfing, directions, chop you wood, make fires, tell you where to get a good coffee and give tons of knowledge on local hikes and trails (and what to wear!)
We both love Nature, surfing, yoga, food, health, the Universe, laughing, sillyness, love, books, mountains, oceans, travelling, snowboarding, biking, the beach, flowers, people, star gazing, hiking, cooking and chocolate!
Travelling is a big favourite of ours! Ive been known to couch surf, sleep at homestays, work on farms woofing, snooze in Morrocan Riads, try and live authentically as possible in new countries from new zealand to costa rica and all over europe. We never stay in hotels, hence the reason why we are offering to share our piece of paradise and holistic homestay/cabin in Tofino with you. Our dream is to expand the homestay in Tofino and develop in Costa Rica. We invite all people to come and eat organic farm grown foods from the greenhouse, do yoga, surf, collect shells, hike, bike, paddle board, sleep in hammocks, heal, drink wine, make friends, show gratitude and eat chocolate. Wanna come? :)
We want to inspire you to be the best that you can possibly be.
