On a recent trip to Tofino we stayed at House of Himwitsa. Our room was one of 6 above a gallery, shops & restaurant. Accommodations feature a balcony with hot tub and water view. There are two rooms with spacious balconies. Ours was not one of them. It was what I expected for the price. We had one bedroom, open...

What a wonderful surprise to find such a great place. Everything just perfect, from the friendly hosts to the idyllic location. A great suite equipped with everything needed to ensure a 'hassle free' stay. Comfortable, and great views. Excellent restaurant downstairs and a stones throw away from the regular shops. We should have stayed longer,watching the sun go down every...

always something happening on the bay. a very interesting place with friendly service and great location. The few times over the week we were there we asked for something the service was brilliant and friendly. But the view was to die for.

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...

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...

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. I would not hesitate...
