Location of Tranquil Accommodations
Tranquil Accommodations vacation house is situated on a large private lot in the quiet residential neighbourhood of Jensen's Bay. The Bay is lush with rain forest and a haven for migrating and resident birds. The neighbourhood is low density and is a favourite with visitors and locals alike: its location between Chesterman Beach and Cox Bay Beach and its closeness to the village make it a perfect center for your Tofino vacation.
About The Vacation House
A wonderful house for couples, families or small gatherings, Tranquil Accommodations is a full-featured, three bedroom Tofino home. Privacy is assured. Tofino municipal law requires that a caretaker resides on the property. Tranquil Accommodations was built with this in mind: a smaller caretaker's residence adjoins the house and both homes are private and independent. The caretaker is quiet and friendly: he is there to assist you should you need something, otherwise your privacy is our priority.
Three Bedrooms with Queen Beds
Each of the three bedrooms at Tranquil Accommodations offers a queen bed with full linens and four pillows. If you require alternate sleeping arrangements please let us know. We are able to provide a cot or air mattress.
What to bring:
Please bring your own bedding if you plan to use the alternate sleeping arrangements.
Fully Equipped Kitchen
If you enjoy cooking then you'll feel right at home in the bright, open gourmet kitchen at Tranquil Accommodations. And if you like to chat while you create culinary delights, you'll like the custom built bar that seats six people. So kick back and watch the cooking show or get in there and participate, there's lots of space for more than one cook in this kitchen.
The kitchen is complete with:
· full size refrigerator, stove and oven
· microwave, toaster, blender, mixer and food processor
· all dishes, cutlery, pots and pans
· dish towels, cloths and all kitchen linens
What to bring:
All you have to bring along is food you enjoy and beverages of choice. If you wish to do your shopping in Tofino there is a large grocery store, an organic food market, a government liquor and beer outlet and a cold beer and wine store.
Living Room Comfort and Open Loft
Relax in our open design, two-story living room with plenty of windows to enjoy the view inside and out. A stone fireplace houses a convenient propane fireplace and large plasma TV with DVD player and surround sound. Curl up on the leather couch, love seat or chair to watch a movie, get cozy in one of the small blankets and read, or sit around with friends and chose from a variety of games provided.
What to bring:
Energy, good books, favourite DVDs.
Two Full Bathrooms
The Tranquil Accommodations has a full bathroom upstairs, as part of the master suite, and a second full bathroom on the main floor for the bedrooms and living areas. Quality bath towels, hand towels, and face cloths are provided. Hand soap, a hair dryer, a clothes iron, and ironing board are also included.
What to bring:
Bring your personal toiletries: Shampoo, conditioner, bath soap, shaving cream, etc. We have found that supplying these things means that a lot goes wasted and that extra plastic from providing personal size items is just more going into recycling programs that could be avoided in the first place. So, we ask our guests to please bring their own toiletries.
Hot Tub, BBQ and Grounds
What could be more perfect than a private hot tub surrounded by rain forest in Tofino. Warm up after your day's activities and relax in true Tofino fashion. Afterwards grill up dinner on the outdoor BBQ and enjoy some of Tofino local food choices. Then kick back in the hot tub again and let the quiet of the forest soak into your soul.
The grounds at Tranquil Accommodations are private and spacious. There are gardens, a grass area, a wrap-around covered deck, deck chairs and table, a garden hose, a rope under cover to hang wetsuits, jackets, etc to dry and parking to accommodate up to three vehicles.
Go ahead, get dirty. We realize that playing at the beach or hiking can get downright dirty but that's no problem at Tranquil Accommodations. There is a separate laundry room that is entirely independent of the residences. One washing machine, one dryer and laundry soap are available for your use. This laundry facility is used for both residences on site.
Babies and Small Children
The grounds at Tranquil Accommodations are level and a great place for small kids to enjoy. We do have a high chair, a play pen and a baby gate. We also have a small amount of toys.
What to bring:
Favourite toys and bedding for the play pen.
