Review of Vista Hermosa
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 21 Sept 2022
We are still at the property and have one more day left before we head out tomorrow for our next adventure. This home is so perfect to watch all the people coming and going at the wharf. Float planes doing tours and kayaks and boat’s taxiing to and from the different locations. Lots to see here. It’s also so convenient to walk into town. Grocery store nearby and really almost all you need is a short stroll from here.
I would just add that there is no air conditioning and it was very warm during our stay here. A fan would have been nice if available. Also the chairs on the balcony were very hard to sit on for any length of time, so cushions could be helpful. We also could not get the fireplace to work, although not needed for heat. More for the ambiance in the late evening and early morning when it was a bit cool. I’m really not complaining but more of a suggestion for the owner of this property. We would book here again in a heartbeat,

        We went to Tofino to have a quiet get away. This house was a bad stain on our trip. The guests in the house threw a very loud party for hours, and after calling the property managers and the police, little was done.

        If you are looking for a house used in this way, this is a great location.
        You also won't mind the smoke and pot that wafts up nightly from the harbor parking lot below when locals have their nightly get-together.

        Next trip, we will stay someplace less busy and less central because Tofino isn't as peaceful as we expected.

        We had 3 nights here in May and it was fantastic, the weather was perfect for sitting on the patio watching the boats, the people and Pedro the sea lion. Central so we walked everywhere, hot tub was enjoyed every day.Wonderful from start to finish.

        Reviewed 5 April 2018

        We just spent a family Easter weekend at Vista Hermosa, and we all agreed it is a place we would come back to. It's a cozy three bedroom with a gorgeous vista (as its name suggests), and all the amenities you need with a hot tub to boot. It's located in the heart of Tofino, so it's steps away from restaurants, grocery store, local shops and a park for the kids to play.

        I'm giving Vista Hermosa 4 stars because of its location in downtown Tofino, the cleanliness of the house, and the gorgeous view. There was attention to detail from the owners which included a bag of fresh coffee beans from a Tofino roaster, 6 chocolate bars from Tofino Chocolatier, a welcome card and lots of brochures explaining things to do in the area. The kitchen was fairly well-stocked, the only thing we found missing was a beater to whip up whip cream, but our sloppy pavlova was still delicious.

        However, it lost a star because there are a few things that I feel the owner should address, considering the steep rental price they charge: fix the running toilet because it is really annoying; get new mattresses for the beds because they have definitely passed their expiry date (sagging with a defined hump in the middle, and creaks everytime you move); and lastly, please return your phone messages as you promise to do in your welcome message via VRBO.

        All in all, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this homey three bedroom if you're looking for a great location in Tofino. And if you do decide to book it, bring a pair of binoculars so you can watch the cows of Meares Island grazing on seaweed across the way, and maybe a mattress topper for comfort.

        My husband and I enjoyed the Vista Hermosa for two nights in November and were struck by the gorgeous ocean views from every window. We were welcomed with Tofino chocolate and coffee and an inviting suite that had everything we needed for a comfortable and cozy stay with our little dog, Bella. Not every place allows pets so we were delighted to have such a nice place to stay that was welcoming to our fur friend. Situated on Main street, it was an easy walk to the many Tofino stores so when we weren’t at the beach or sitting by our fireplace in the suite, we could tour what the merchants had to offer just a few steps from our lodging. We will definitely recommend the Vista Hermosa to our friends and would love to return ourselves some day. Thank you Rosa and Eric!!! Sarah and Dan from Nanaimo

        Was impressed with the view from the deck and size of the rooms. I expected a bit more from the reviews. Don't like to knit pick but there are more than a few items that need attention. The closet door in main bedroom is broken off and laying inside the closet. The fireplace does not work. The remotes for TV have dead batteries. Their was no soap for doing dishes as well no dish washer detergent. This explains why all the dishes that are supplied were covered in grease. I called the owner and she brought soap, so we washed all the dishes. The toilet has a broken flush button and has continuously running water. I think these house keeping issues should of been addressed prior to our arrival. Good things about this place, it's minutes from shopping, terrific view and the hot tub was a plus. Good news for the next people that stay here. The dishes are all clean and we put new batteries in one of the remotes.
