This home is in a stunning location and there are many positives to the house. The owners/managers were very helpful and the booking process went well and all questions were answered.However, it was only after looking on other rental sites and comments from other renters that I realized I was not renting the whole house. Which I did bring up with the owners. The top part of the home was not rented out when we were there. This makes the cost for the lower half of the home expensive (we did rent over the Labor Day weekend) Total for 3 nights over $2100.
Essentially you are getting 3 bed and 3 baths all on one level. Kitchen has the basics although I think the cooker could do with a bit of a clean and update (everything did work).
The hot tub, fire pit and sauna are great and the views from the hot tub are breathtaking. Did not have time to use the sauna though or firepit. The hottub and views alone and the closeness to the beaches and town are worth putting up with the minor points mentioned.
Some thing else to be aware of is that there is another building right next door (you cannot see it in the picture) and there are trucks parked there and the bedroom behind the kitchen was aware of alot of coming and going and it was disruptive to their sleep.
Great location and with a bit more attention to details this place could be 4/5Star.
We liked the house and enjoyed the hot tub but the house was not very clean,we found a toenail under the coffee table,the welcome pack consisted of a small amount of damp sugar and some coffee beans,there was not enough towels for the six person's booked, and the dishes needed to be rewashed, there was not enough wine glasses either, non the less having cleaned the place we had a good time
We had a wonderful stay at CedarView house & suite! My dad and his dogs stayed downstairs. My two sisters came to visit on separate nights, they were also sincerely enjoying this house! My fiancé and myself + our two dogs stayed upstairs in the suite (it was wonderful!) We loved the beautiful views and the whole house in itself. The dining room was breath taking! & Don't get me started on the two headed shower! It was very clean & modern. So cozy and bright! The downstairs was also amazing! Very big open concept, plenty of space for privacy, loved the cozy cottage feel. The wrap around deck was beautiful. We enjoyed a great BBQ! Short walk down the board walk that lead to a private hot tub & sauna! We made much use of the hot tub but didn't get around to the sauna. (Next time!) We also had a great time around the camp fire! I could go on and on about this place! It's a must see for yourself. We will for sure be staying here again! One more thing, I myself would have loved to write in the guest book but there wasn't a pen in site! Oh well I hope this review made up for it. Until next time CedarView!

CedarView House was the perfect home base for 6 of us (3 couples) on a getaway to Tofino. The setting is a private oasis of green, with a boardwalk out to the back bay. We enjoyed roasting marshmallows around the fire pit, but didn't find time to use the hot tub or sauna which looked very nice. Chesterman Beach is just a five minute walk across the road for daytime exploring and beachcombing. The house is a short drive from the main drag of Tofino in one direction, and Pacific Rim National Park (Long Beach) in the other direction. CedarView house was well-equipped for cooking and BBQ-ing meals at home.
We stayed here on a fishing trip with 4 fathers and sons. The place has a great location on the inlet side with amazing views, a hot tub, a cedar sauna and a fire pit.
The kids and adults all enjoyed the place and couldn't have asked for a better place.
I wish we could have stayed longer.
