We your hosts, Al and Michelle, like many others, fell in love with Tofino and decided to make it our full time home. We moved to Tofino and started up Cedarwood Cove in May 2013, getting married three months later on the beautiful North Chesterman beach. We love to share our home with others, and meet interesting people from around the world! We will help you live like a local whilst visiting this slice of paradise. We will guide you through the feasts of Tofino, magical beach combing, forest bathing, wave watching, and ensure you find all the food havens! Michelle offers wellness treatments, massage, nutrition, and yoga, and she can’t live without fresh juice, books, coconut oil and the ocean. Alan will provide you all you need for the surf, bikes, adventure hikes and unique stand up paddle tours. He can’t live without his bike, potatoes, surfing, tooth floss, Michelle and Koli our dog. Together we make great hosts who hope to inspire you to enjoy the outside, and all of its elements, and invest in your health and happiness.
We live onsite most of the year and are available to help plan your stay, but we can also offer complete privacy. We both volunteer a lot in our community protecting what we love, the ocean and beaches. When offsite, cohosts will be arranged to ensure you have everything you need.
