Vista Hermosa Guest Comments

Here's what some of our guests had to say about Vista Hermosa:

Its more then 10 years since our first visit to Vista Hermosa but we are well and truly hooked. We have had a stay in the beautiful Oceanfront Suite but our favourite is the Captains Quarters as we now can't come without friends. We always come in the fall when Tofino is quieter and we are always surprised at the beauty of the area. We have had everything from wild and stormy to balmy summer weather. We love it no matter what the weather as Vista Hermosa offers us the best in comfort and relaxation. We love the views and we never get bored watching the boats, planes, eagles and wonderful sunsets. Add to all that the hot tub under the stars at night. We couldn't ask for anything more and hope to continue returning year after year.

Two years ago, our first visit to Vista Hermosa just left us speechless. This time we pulled ourselves together to express what we feel :) If Vancouver Island is a beautiful sea shell and Tofino is a stunning pearl in it - then Vista Hermosa is that little golden grain of sand from which it all starts. We never felt like it is a vacation rental, it always seemed to be one of a kind and only for us. We think this is the best impression possible, and you successfully achieved it. We wish you the best of luck, as apparently you have everything else, we are sure your business will prosper and we will be coming back!

Vista Hermosa is certainly a rare find in Tofino. This is our third vacation in this great town, and this place certainly is the cherry on top and much more. So glad we found it. The kitchen rocked! BBQ was great. Hot tubbing, first thing in the morning. And right on into the night! Thanks so much, this is our place the next time we come to Fino.
Lisa & Shane, Richmond, BC
Thank you for the great stay. The view was awesome along with the whole area. Wish the stay could have been longer, oh well just gives us an excuse to come back.
Zac & Stephanie, Vernon, BC
Awesome time gazing across "Browning Passage." But, sounds like we did not have as much fun as Vanessa (see March 25 2005) (plus, we did not find a bear in the tub!, just a naughty rubber ducky) Enough of our comedy English ways, thanks ever so much. T'was a great stay or grrrreat as Tony the tiger would say. Loved the whales (but Wales is a bit of another story). See ya soon!
Hugh, Jenny Stickland-sheggield, UK and Nick & Becky Bansback, Vancouver, BC
We had the best time here! Lovely place, lovely view. Jacuzzi,....we'll be coming back again soon. Thanks!
Thank you for the great place to stay! Great view!
Thanks for the awesome stay! Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful! Loved the hot tub in sunny weather and rain! So much to look at at the Wharf and so close to everything! The place to stay in Tofino! Thanks!
Terri, Allan, Thomas (4) Marie (2), Bowen Island, BC
Beautiful place, loved the deck and both washrooms! Very comfortable-lovely view and quiet. Excellent location, close to the best rib-eye ever (at Schooner's.) Going to try surfing today with Surf sisters, so hope that goes well! Whale watching is a must (Pacific Adventures had a great deal) Will recommend to all, and will definitely return. Thanks so much!! P.S. Hot tub and warm nights were amazing! Loved the deck!
Olivia & Sadie, Coquitlam, BC
For two months I've had clinical depression. Just before this trip, my doctor wanted to have me hospitalized before I hurt myself. I felt life was just not worth living until my stay here. It's not just the view, or the luxury of Vista Hermosa, but the company. On the first day, I sat on the porch with my best friends in the world and realized how beautiful life can be. I admired them as they admired the view and thought about how fortunate I am to have such wonderful people to share this amazing experience with me. My doctor thought IӤ loose control during this trip and tried to stop me from coming. I canӴ imagine regretting anything anymore.
Thank you, Karen
What a fantastic place. We have had the loveliest time here. Tofino and surrounds are beautiful. WeӬl try to get back here again someday, maybe on our tenth anniversary? This really has been the highlight of our honeymoon. Just amazing!
Love, Jonnie & Rose, UK
Many thanks for a fantastic stay here in Tofino. Everything in the suite has been absolutely perfect and much more that we expected. WeӬl be heading home with lots of magical memories. An awesome whale watching trip, beautiful seaplane experience, fantastic barbeque, watching the sun go down on the deck and of course, looking up on a clear starry night from the fantasy hot tub. This really is an amazing place. On our three week honeymoon, weӶe seen Niagara Falls and traveled through the rockies, but nothing beats Tofino! We hope to be back again. Best wishes
Julie & Daniel
No alarm clock by the bed-a perfect indication that we would be relaxing and resting. We thought we heard whales splashing outside when we were in the hot tub on Saturday evening. UhƗhat can we say? Big waves and a creaky pier sound just like a pod of orcas! Who knew? : ) Thanks for a wonderful stay. Wish we had more time.
Ashley & Jesse, Vancouver, BC
This place rocks! Best memories. Sippin bear in the hot tub. StrippinҠdown to just about nothing, waking up to a view of the ocean and a sea man beside me. Mmmm! ( I wonӴ get into the dirty details) Thanks,
Vista Hermosa was everything we expected and more. Thanks.
Jerry & Dianne, Ontario
Vista Hermosa feels like home, we had crab & steak for dinner and everything we needed was here. The view, the BBQ, the hot tub, and even a fireplace. We couldnӴ have asked for more. Truly the best vacation spot for the ultimate experience. We will be back. This is the perfect way to vacation. Thank you
Maya & Anwar & Baby Kegan, Vancouver, BC
Vista Hermosa was just like home, only with a view! Many thanks for all the details, big and small that went into making the suite so comfortable.
Felicity, Orcas Island, WA
We had a great get away from home weekend. This place is everything we could want. Thanks!
Tanya, Dan & Morgan, Nanaimo, BC
Thank you for everything, we both had a wonderful time. It was so quiet and relaxing that we both agreed that we should come back. We loved it!
Erin & Scott
This is a wonderful place-everything we could want and more. The extra touches greatly appreciated. Wonderful time-superb weather for January. Thanks so much.
Janet & Bill, BC
Thank you for your hospitality. It was great working with the girls. They are all so receptive. We really enjoyed our little getaway during the storm. Sitting in the hot tub during that was amazing! Thank you again.
Greg & Heidi
Great place, all the comforts of home but with a beautiful view. What was even nicer was that I was still able to watch the soap operas on movie central.
Graham & Debbie, Cloverdale, BC
The time was really too short to enjoy Tofino, but the sample visit was a foretaste for more.
From Germany
Absolutely stunning! I have lived in some amazing places, like the Rockies, Okanagan, Victoria, and I would trade it in for all this. I had worked in the tourism industry for years and will be sure to recommend you to everyone! Drive up was stunning. The town adorable, and the people are all kind. The suite was also stunning. The rain did nothing to dampen my spirit. Thank you
Vista Hermosa is certainly a rare find in Tofino. This is our third vacation in this great town, and this place certainly is the cherry on top and much more. So glad we found it. The kitchen rocked! BBQ was great. Hot tubbing, first thing in the morning. And right on into the night! Thanks so much, this is our place the next time we come to Fino.
Lisa & Shane, Richmond, BC
Everything we needed after the trip from Whistler. Arrived at 8:30 pm. And were immediately relaxed by the setting, tranquility, hot tub etc. Very impressed with the size of the beer fridge! Special mention should go out to the builders who helped us to extract the maximum from each day by starting work on the stairs outside the bedroom window at 7:00am every morning : ). Despite that, this is probably our favorite place after 5-6 visits to Tofino. We canӴ wait to come back.
Jane & Andy, Portsmouth, UK
Excellent spot; peaceful place... Saw two bald eagles flying over and a ruffus humming bird just below the decking. Enjoyed sea kayaking with remote passages. Cheers!
Graham Bannister, Portsmouth, UK
We canӴ say too much about how wonderful our stay was. The comfortable spacious, spotlessly cleaned house. So welcoming & intimate. And the amazing view- the hot tub. We feel totally at home as we relaxed and enjoyed ourselves. Time actually stood still. Our only regret is that we canӴ stay longer but we feel just lucky and grateful to have discovered Casa Hermosa.
Judith & Stefan Collignon, A bietot et un grand "merci", Paris, France
Thank you for everything. We had a wonderful time here and we want to come back soon.
Marce & Henry
Thank you for such lovely accommodations, truly a wonderful time and something we obviously need to do a tad more often. The peaceful surroundings and the private, spotless and quiet little hideaway just balanced our souls. Thanks you, thank you, thank you! WeӬl be back!
Sandy & Val Davis, Victoria, BC
Even hailstorms and rain showers couldnӴ hinder a great relaxation vacation. Loved the raw beauty mixed all the comforts of civilized living. There is nothing like waking up & jumping into the hot tub with a cool rain, except jumping into it with a cool beer in the afternoon, evening or night. A great way to spend the day! Thank you!
Jay & Loreen (birthday girl) amd Steve & Tracey
Wonderful views and location. Really appreciated the fireplace and heater in the bathroom after a cool, rainy day outside. Thanks for all the food supplies as well, very handy.
Marianna & Peter
Nice diversion from the normal hectic pace of life. Seafood every day all dayƹum! Mucho wildlife sightings, taking the guided tours are the way to go for "first timers" to find. Then feel free to explore from there. Nice digs, perfect for the crew. The view of the water with the islands and mountains as a backdrop put me in a chill of mud the whole week. Just what I needed after a frantic first year in the pacific NW. Itӳ starting to grow on me, and the only TV station showing NCAA football had my on state Buckeyes featured, so I guess IӬl be back next year! Thanks!
Beautiful view! We loved our stay here. We enjoyed whale watching, the beach and great food at Shelters. WeӬl be back soon I hope! Thank you!
Sarah & Jonathan Halton
We had a great time mostly relaxing. The snow was unexpected which enhanced the spectacular view of the sound from here. Thank you for the paying attention to little details that made our stay much more enjoyable. WeӬl definitely be back.
Michel & Karen
What a perfect view from our suite! The accommodations were everything imagined. WeӶe thoroughly enjoyed Tofino and the surrounding beaches and area, including kayaking, and of course, the hot tub..a bonus! Thank goodness it rained and the water restrictions were lifted. Most our tip was sunny and fabulous.
As far North by northwest weӶe ever traveled and definitely worth the trip! Spent an entire day whale watching & bear watching and while disappointed to not run into any orcas we did see some gray and black bear cubs. It was the highlight of our afternoon. Shops and galleries better than any weӶe encountered back in Victoria last week. Tonightӳ out last night. WeӬl spend it watching for the sign of the whale from the hot tub. P.S. my husband promises to take me back here. I just hope it does not take another ten years! I enjoyed spending our tenth anniversary in the BC!
Alan & Kim, Atlanta, GA
We enjoyed our stay at Hermosa House. Amazing views, beautiful scenery and spacious accommodations we would stay here again!
Shelley, Joyce, Jack, Brian, Juan and Ethan Cox, Winnipeg, Canada
We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves during our stay with superb views and amenities. A truly relaxing time for all of us (6) very well appointed.
Julie, John and family
We had a wonderful time during our stay. Beautiful views, spacious & relaxing! A truly amazing experience.
Kim, Lethbridge, AB
WeӬl always remember!
Johanna & Marci
What an amazing place! The apartment is perfect and the view from the hot tub superb. Good places to eat-Schooners, the Rainforest and Shelter- and donӴ miss lunch at Sobo in the botanical gardens. All the beaches are wonderful, but our favorite is Florencia Bay. Love the Canadians-we will certainly be back!
John and Shana, Argyll, Scotland
Excellent accommodations and superb views across bay. Lots to see and do but whale watching the best. The hot tub was an excellent way to relax at the end of the day.
Brian and Gill, Hampshire, England and Natasha & James, Vancouver
Killer whale sightings from the porch-awesome! Jamieӳ gave a great bear watching tour complete with dolphins & whales and bears!
Tom & Kimberly Noble, Houston, TX
Thank you it is a beautiful view!
Marie & Wes
Lovely house, lovely views, amazing to see the grey whale, Stella, sea lions and sea otters with Jamies Whale Watching Company. Blue Heron Restaurant (down on the bottom of Days Inn) great views & food.
The Stephens, England
What an amazing experience we have had here in Tofino. Whale watching, surfing, hot springs etc. A great place to stay with wonderful views.
Risull, Nicola & Charle Jamieson, England
Perfect setting for our honeymoon-very relaxing hot tub, superb local marine life fab dinners served with correct wine of course!! Would really recommend this setting even if not on a honeymoon.
Barbara, Ottawa, Ontario
Great fun trying to surf with "Live to Surf." Fun time in Zodiac with Adventures Pacific-great ride, but difficult to spot the whale(whale watching better in Telegraph cove) but ride was exhilarating. Fishing with Jim Shanks 726-8426-reasonable fishing for a bad day. Great position of apartment and the views spectacular. Cold beer recommended on a hot day. Would love to come back sometime.
Gilly, Grame, Kristy, Cameron, Eastowne, England
Wonderful new house, hot tub etc. Shame about the builders. Had a brilliant trip to the Hot springs with remote passages. Fantastic meal at new restaurant upstairs above Schooners.
Jonathan & Andrew
A very relaxing patio looking over the sound of the harbor. Pleasant atmosphere like a home away from home. Loved the view, the hot tub and the music. What a wonderful view and excellent three days and nights of surfing, kayaking & whale watching!
Shannon & Scott, Stratford, Ontario
IӶe had an unbelievable weekend! The house was the perfect compliment to the sun and surf! Thank you, we really felt at home. See ya soon!

Thank you for your efforts in developing a perfect setting for a stay in Tofino. The view is great and your property is awesome. Tofino will be a regular point of travel for our family for many years to come. God Bless you! P.S. thanks for all the little extras in the kitchen supply.

Dear Barbara & Desmond, what a location, and what a superbly appointed apartment. Our warmest thanks to you for everything. Tofino harbour is full of interest. The binoculars are a great bonus in this respect. The beautiful beaches, Grice Bay, and the best trip from Tofino - Port Alberi will forever be in out memories.
Andrew, Bruspol, UK
Great view, cozy and well equipped. We enjoyed going out to see the whales. We saw a beautiful humpback who put on a great show. A very relaxing stay. Thanks.
Gwen, Ontario, Canada
A most enjoyable visit. Beautiful view. Hope to be back before too long thanks.
Helen & Trevor, BC
Dearest Barbara & Desmond, So neat and tidy and new! We loved your place-views are very spectacular. Congratulations on your new home. Will be back very very very soon!
Mary & Alex, Santa Fe, New Mexico
Dear Barbara & Desmond, We spent 3 wonderful days in this nice flat. We enjoyed the beautiful view, the sun and the atmosphere of Tofino. We made an exciting tour to Meares Island and thought "this must be paradise." The schooner fish restaurant is the best we have experienced. We saw a black bear who stood on his back feet to pose for us. All in all a great experience. We were the first to use the BBQ grill and the steaks coming off it were excellent! As we have not seen all the nice spots at Tofino yet, we will come back!
Paul, Elisabeth, Annita, Lous, Germany
We arrived in the middle of the night, exhausted, after our long drive. But we were delighted to find ourselves in such a beautiful apartment. Even better, we woke in the morning to find such a wonderful view. Everything we wanted. Thank you, we'd love to come again!
Becky & gang, London, UK
Marvelous! In a few minutes is this our house? How different is the beach and the sea between Tofino and Holland. Thanks
Ellie and Jan, The Netherlands
You helped make this a very memorable weekend. A sensational view and a very stocked house. Very much encourage the use of the hot tub. Thank you
Katherine Bartlett
We had a great stay. Everything was wonderful. You have a great place here. It will be highly recommended. Thank you

Had a wonderful time in Tofino. Be sure and do the schooner trail at low tide. Lots of things to explore. Cheers!
Vancouver, BC
This is our last day after four days. This was just what the doctor ordered. A month would have been great! Sign up for surfing lessons at surf sisters. Eat seafood, Drink Australian wine and avoid the move channel. Let go and relax, Great Place!
Good Surf, Good times, thank you!
Adam & Elliot, Victoria, BC
Thanks for the great stay! The food was awesome. You have a nice place here. Everything we needed.
Juanita & Leo, Ft. Mcmurray, AB
Simply wonderful! We had a better time than Vanessa earlier! The view from Vista Hermosa was without parallel! A wonderful time in great accommodations!
Watching a beautiful sunset from the hot tubs after a day of hiking and whale watching-what a perfect way to spend the holidays. See you again soon!
Holly & LW, Guelph, Ontario
Visiting Tofino is something I can now cross off my list of "things to do before I die." While we loved the "Tofi experience," it was enhanced even more by the Vista Hermosa experience. They are together a full package! Loved the view, sunshine, warm breezes, and food! This place has definitely everything to make stay comfortable no matter what the weather is like. We enjoyed the hot tub, view, BBQing and convenience of having all amenities so close.
Olga, Slava, Irina, Moscow, Russia and Mark & Angelina, Vancouver, BC
What a wonderful and cozy place you have here. The view is spectacular and the front row center view of Canada Dayӳ fireworks was the highlight of our trip! We enjoyed our stay and loved the hot tub (must get one!) Thanks for your hospitality.
Gina, Gio and Mocha ( I loved looking out the window), Coquitlam, BC
We had a wonderful week here; despite warnings from friends, we didnӴ need the waterproofs at all! Six days of bright, clear sunshine with only small foggy interludes. The air is great and the views truly memorable. The comings and goings of the seaplanes and the boats in the harbor below made a small 5 year old boy truly happy! We all enjoyed a whale watching trip and saw humpbacks, orcas, and sea lions. We really hope to come back one day!
Paul & Sue
What a great place-thoroughly enchanted visit.
Veronica, UK
Now I know what "awesome" really means. Thanks a lot! Simply Great! Best wishes from Vienne (Austria)
