Venue Highlights

The Homestead is located in the heart of Tofino, perched high on a rock point over looking Stub Island to the west. This prime location, surrounded by a United Nations World Biosphere Reserve, provides you with a front row view to amazing wildlife and serene sunsets, giving you a sense of being miles away from civilization when in reality the charm and convenience of Tofino is only a few minutes’ walk away.

Tofino has recently become one of British Columbia's top vacation destinations for those who revel in unspoiled wilderness. Situated on the Esowista Peninsula on the West Coast of Vancouver Island, its current population is less than 2000 residents but thousands of years ago it is believed that as many as 100,000 First Nations inhabited the area across the water from Tofino on Meares Island.

When visiting The Homestead Tofino, see First Nation's history as well as Canada’s surf mecca. Tofino offers boutiques with beautiful local art, restaurants and cafés with many local specialties. The village has a “super chill” vibe where it is easy to let yourself go and connect with all it has to offer.
