The Homestead Tofino

About us

Welcome to The Homestead Tofino.

We are an all-inclusive fitness and wellness retreat located in spectacular Tofino, British Columbia. Tofino is located among forested mountains, green islands, bays and open oceans, home to seals, humpback, gray and killer whales, and flocks of shore birds.  It is truly deserving of its designation as a UNESCO Biosphere.

We provide guests with personalized services that use the most current evidenced based solutions. This offers you the ability to improve your fitness, health and mental resiliency.

Who we are:

Peter Stubbins (Physiotherapist)

Cheryl Duffy (Registered Nurse)The Homestead Tofino is a dynamic team of outdoor enthusiasts who believe that living well, eating well, and practicing mindfulness can provide positive long term health benefits. Proprietors Peter Stubbins and Cheryl Duffy are experienced health care providers.

Peter is a registered physiotherapist, studied osteopathy, teaches yoga and meditation and likes to base clinical decisions on solid research. He has a personal connection to First Nations culture and believes in ecological protection and restoration.

Cheryl Duffy is a registered nurse and former dental hygienist. She has over thirty years of combined health care services. She has given talks on the metabolic syndrome and volunteered with her local diabetic clinic to educate those newly diagnosed.

Both have achieved their black belts in GoJu Ryu Karate. They are actively involved in sports and their community. Together they have engaged in many projects and the Homestead Tofino is where they want to bring their mission statement to life. They aim to promote a healthy way of living, to eat quality healthy food, to gain first-hand knowledge how to improve your shopping choices and cooking skills, to find practical solutions to your exercise needs, and to calm your mind and learn new ways of living in your modern life.

The team consists of: a chef, fitness instructors and an outdoor educator. We utilize outfitters and guest speakers in the area to provide you with a complete experience. From First Nations guides and elders, to naturalists and yoga instructors. Psychiatrist Dr. M Love provides guidance on meditation and discovering your “blue mind” which combines neuroscience and psychology with nature. Other guest speakers will vary from week to week.

When experienced health care professionals team up with outdoor recreationalists and chefs, along with First Nations people, there is a synergy for a world-class experience. Your mind, body and spirit will be lifted.
