Welcome to Heron's Perch.
This cozy and elegant beachfront cottage is nestled in the trees right on Chesterman's Beach. You can hear the ocean while in bed and watch magnificent pacific sunsets from your deck chair or hot tub. There is a perfect balance between privacy and direct views to the beach and water.
Sleep to the sounds of the ocean waves, wake to the smell of old growth forest and the ability to step right onto the stunning Chesterman beach that will give you hours of exploring pleasure. It has Canada's best surfing and is rimmed in dramatic Mountains.
The cottage combines all the elements of having the inspiring expanse of shifting light, and horizon, and dramatic sunsets, with being cozy and embracing.
The cottage ideally takes 2-4 people. There is an extra suite downstairs with another bedroom, memory foam pull out sofa and full bath, which can be rented additionally, it allows families or couples to travel together, while having private space to retreat to, or to send the kids downstairs etc... The photos show a dining table for 4 but it has expanded to be able to fit 6.
Some like to rent the additional suite as a way to secure your complete privacy. The design however is such that the downstairs suite gains access to the beach through the side of the property rather than walking in front of the deck, which would visually impair privacy, so even if there is someone staying downstairs, they will in no way compromise your romantic sensibility (or ability to skinny dip in the hot tub). There are no current pictures quite yet, but the deck has been expanded and there is a hot tub with an ocean view:)
As per the by-laws of Tofino, there is also a caretaker on site downstairs.

Even though adventure will take up most of your day - kayaking, whale watching, hiking, surfing.... sleeping is the other half and the bed
is really comfortable with down pillows and down comforter. There is a pillow top for those who want a little bit more comfort and there is also a fabulous sofa that doubles as a 2nd queen bed. It is firm rather than being a lumpy spring pull out. There are also two window seats which kids absolutely adore sleeping in as it make them feel like they are in a tree house.
You can make a fire right on the beach, walk across the sand to the famous Wikininnish Inn to enjoy their world class dinning or indulge yourself at the Ancient cedars Spa.
There are great board games, and comfy reading chairs where you can watch the bald eagles and whales. There are few spots right on the beach as romantic as Herons Perch. We hope to make your stay a treasure of a memory.

Interactie met gasten
The Cottage has incredible privacy. You can see the neighbors through the trees and there are people walking along the beach access path. You can hear them occasionally, but not see them. Over the hedge you can see the ocean and the surfers riding waves and the dogs chasing birds, but never is there a sense of exposure. There is the goldilock balance of view of the ocean and the sunset and yet not having to watch everyone who is walking on the beach.
