House of Himwitsa is located right on the bay in the center of Tofino. We were very pleasantly surprised arriving to the comfortable lodge. The check in was seemless. The room was lovely and very good sized with two double beds. There was a full, small kitchen most handy to prepare quick breakfasts. A balcony with a view of the... More

Wonderful large suite which is fully equipped including hot tub on the deck with a great view of the marina and water. Unfortunately we were unable to complete our stay because of health reasons.

House of Himwitsa is located directly behind the Tofino marina, offering a stunning view out across the Clayoquot Sound. You come to Tofino for the views and you won't find one better than this. I found the room to be quite generously sized compared to a typical hotel room with a kitchenette. Everything was clean and well appointed. The restaurant... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in October, 2015. The space itself was beautiful, overlooking the harbour. Close to everything in Tofino. The few minor issues that we had were taken care of immediately without hesitation. Richard, owner/manger, was good enough to tell us of some of the hidden gems to see and do around Tofino.

My family (2 adults + 2 children) had stayed in this place for 3 nights during Aug-2015. Overall, we were very pleased with this place. It has very good location with nice views, located in Tofino - just in front of the sea planes "airport"/wharf (which does not generate extra noise). Quiet place. Very close walking distance to few restaurants,... More

Great location overlooking the harbour. Close to good restaurants, I can highly recommend the SoBo restaurant up the hill. Our friends had a hot tub with their room, fantastic for relaxing under the clear starry skies. Locally owned with accommodation above the shops. Slept like a log here. Highly recommended

Came to Tofino with a friend to celebrate her birthday with a zero. This place was perfect! Hot tub on the balcony. Views to die for. Comfortable beds. Kitchenette to assist with the mixing of martinis. Great place to watch the eagles soar, the sun set and the float planes come and go. Would recommend without "but" to everyone!

First floor apartments will sleep at least 4 and very spacious with 2 queen beds, the kitchen is a little basic but hey we ate out anyway. View from the balcony is superb and you can choose an apartment with a balcony hot tub. The view came into it's own at sunset it was beautiful to see.
