We will do our best to accommodate all dietary restrictions within reason.
This will be on a case by case basis so give us a shout and we shall see what we can do!
Is everything going to be Super healthy?
We believe in eating a BALANCED diet! That means fueling our bodies for what we expect them to do while enjoying what we eat!
We will be eating healthy 80% of the time, and the other 20% of the time we will be enjoying various treats, sweets, and island eats!
Where is Tofino?
Tofino is located on the West Coast of the Beautiful Vancouver Island.
How do I get there?
There are a few different ways to get to tofino!
~ Car ~
Tofino is a 3 hr drive from Nanaimo
If you are coming from the mainland, then you will have to take a Ferry to get there
We highly recommend carpooling with a friend (old friend or new!) to keep it cost effective
The bonus of driving is that you will have a vehicle with you to scoot about in your free time!
~ Plane ~
You can either fly into Tofino or Nanaimo (the next closest airport)
We can Pick you up/Drop you off in Nanaimo or Tofino!
Flying will be more expensive but less travel time
Where are we staying?
We are staying in a beautiful house, a 10 minute walk away from Cox Bay, one of our favourite beaches in Tofino!
Does the house have wifi?
Yes, don't you worry!
While we encourage you to stay unplugged as much as possible we know that staying connected is important too ;)
We are going old school sleep over style!
There will be two people to a queen sized bed.
The house is equipped with:
- 2 Bathrooms
- Washing Machine
- Amazing Fire pit
- T.V. (can someone say movie night?)
