Description from owner


Cedar Shack Cabin by the Beach

A Hidden Gem: Beautiful, Elegant, Private

Cedar Shack Cabin is named by many a tucked away Tofino Gem and is a favorite with small families and couples. The cabin offers two bedrooms each with queen bed, luxurious linen and duvets, a bright open concept living - dining area with a warm gas fireplace in a cozy living room with bay window and skylights. A full well appointed kitchen to cook your meal, then enjoy dinner at the handcrafted dining table.

Off the master bedroom relax on the deck furnished with cedar Adirondack Chairs, cook dinner on the gas BBQ, then soak in your private hot tub to stargaze in the evening. Cedar Shack Cabin is carefully designed by the owners with beautiful local artwork and many personal touches will make your stay one to remember. The lush vegetation surrounding the cabin provides complete privacy, yet you are close enough to hear the ocean, only three minute walk to the beach.

The cabin is located at the back of our property backing on to a forest and surrounded by natural vegetation providing guests total privacy, the great part is you're still close enough to hear the ocean. A tree lined beach path is just across the road from our driveway and a three minute stroll from door to the beach.

From the parking area to your cabin its about 100 feet along a flower and shrub lined gravel path. There is a luggage cart waiting for you at the cabin.

Very Good

“Secluded/Private, only a short walk to the beach”

Reviewed 5 Mar 2018

Wow, beautiful little hideaway! Place lived up to it's description. Only the 2 of us, so plenty of space. We were away on a little vacay and it was all that and more. Close to the beach for beach walking or having a small fire, which we did both. We enjoyed local brew and pizza. Awesome!! Went on a few hikes, nothing to strenuous but wonderful, did a little beach combing. All in all, had an amazing weekend, would most definitely come back! Oh, to add to it, we found out our parents had stayed here years ago and they also loved it!!

“An Oasis of Relaxing and Calm”

Reviewed 14 Mar 2015

We stayed at the Cedar Shack for four nights and had a wonderful time. It feels more like home than a rental. Everything you need for cooking and BBQing. The hot tub was a real treat and I enjoyed sitting in the cozy Tofino chairs on the deck reading and soaking up the quiet. Close to the beach and just minutes away from Tofino we would certainly recommend the Cedar Shack.

“I hope Heaven looks like Cedar Shack”

Reviewed 25 Sep 2014

We have to pat ourselves on the back for finding such a fantastic retreat! Everything about Cedar Shack cabin, location, privacy was absolutely perfect AND with all the comforts of home. The cabin is extremely well appointed, the owners have thought of all the little details and touches, very welcoming indeed. The beach is very close and can be accessed by a treed path in a couple minutes. We are almost hesitant to share our discovery of the Cedar Shack in case it is not available for our next vacation. We love this place! it was perfect for our getaway. We’ve all decided that we could live here and our husbands and kids could come visit once a month. We have stayed in many nice places in Tofino, but the Cedar Shack was by far the best. Thank you so much. We will be back for sure!

“The best vacation i have ever had.”

Reviewed 27 Mar 2014

Cedar shack far exceeded my expectations!! A private piece of Tofino and so cozy, a real home away from home. Only a 3 minute walk to Chesterman beach. Where we experienced the true nature of the wild west coast. Cedar shack is also very close to Long beach and Tofino, I would recommend to rent a bike or even bring your roller blades as there is a great bike path close by aa. I really enjoyed watching a kite surfer who tackled a 7 foot swell and gave a great show doing flips and getting major air!! If the beach is what you want... this is where you want to be. Looking forward to coming back

“Hot tub to die for :-)”

Reviewed 15 Oct 2013

Stayed Thanksgiving weekend with husband and two kids. Warm and spotless, right across the street from the best stretch of Chestermann's Beach...and the big bonus...a very private and perfectly kept hot tub. We'll be back!

“Perfect cottage for a beach holiday!”

Reviewed 10 Sep 2013

We had a wonderful stay at Cedar Shack. The shack is a "high end cottage" that was very clean, well kept and very well equipped with amenities. The grounds of the cottage is maintained to a very high standard with private surroundings. The hot tub is located in the garden where you are not overlooked by anyone. It was the perfect location for getting to the beach without having to drive. I had the pleasure of meeting the owner Barbara who is a very nice and friendly person.

“Our Little Home away From Home”

Reviewed 9 Aug 2013

We arrived after a long flight and drive to this little oasis on the beach. Located across the road from the famous Chesterman beach but secluded enough to be away from all the hectic bustle and hustle. The cabin was well equipment and enough space for a family especially with grown children. You will find everything you need, from laundry detergent, soap, coffee, tea and a welcome basket upon your arrival. The back deck was secluded, peaceful and included a barbeque and a hot tub. The tub was toasty warm on those cool Tofino mornings. We met the owner briefly, Barbara was cordial, professional and concerned about our stay. We would like to thank her for all the little extras in the cabin. It was more like staying in a hotel than a cabin. A true recommendation for anyone staying in the area.

“a little piece of paradise”

Reviewed 31 May 2013

This little residence is perfect for two couples. Its secluded, quiet, close to the beach, and had all of the amenities that we needed even crackers to crack the crabs we bought and cooked! All of the little luxuries of home and the big ones such as the hot tub! Warm, clean, and blissfully quiet. Its everything we were looking for in a couple days mini-vacation. Thank you :)


Reviewed 17 Apr 2013

Great place.Home from home.Very quiet location and not far away from everything.To bad that we had so many other things to do in Tofino and the Pacific Rim that there was not time enough to really enjoy the Place. If we are back in Tofino, this is the place to be.

“Absolutely perfect !!!”

Reviewed 12 Oct 2012

Cedar Shack is beautifuly located in a quiet residential area just a min walk to lovely Chesterman Beach. It is totally private surrounded by trees and flowers. The cottage is nicely decorated and fully equipped with all you could possibly need. Private Hot Tub was great. Close to Tofino for shopping. Surfing was great with Cox Beach just around the next cove... and lovely sunsets. We would definitely go back and recommend it to anyone.
