Property Description

 Brick House by the Beach is an architecturally unique, brick-clad home situated on a private, one-acre property. It is located on Lynn Road, across from a public beach access, and is a short stroll to spectacular Chesterman Beach. The ‘Brick House’, as it is fondly known by locals, sleeps six guests and is ideal for families or surfing enthusiasts.

The private, front-of-house garden offers outdoor dining, a fire pit, a beautifully landscaped berm with interesting plantings, and a delightful grassy area ideal for bocce ball, badminton or soaking in the summer sun with a good book.

The Brick House offers a unique living space on two levels, providing three bedrooms and two bathrooms. It features original stained-glass windows, a skylite-filled roof, heavy timber frames, heated tile floors, a floating, curved staircase and a dramatic, relief-carved entrance door by Tofino artist Michelle Foley, who trained under master carver Henry Nola. And, a new hot tub has recently been added in the private, rear-of-house garden, which also features a tiled terrace with outdoor seating, BBQ, and a fabulous outdoor shower.

The main floor features a functional, well-stocked kitchen with lovely natural light, a gas stove and wine bar (ideal for the passionate chef!), a lofty living room with comfortable seating anchored around an old-brick fireplace surmounted by a custom-made surf board graphically designed by Tofino artist Claire Watson, and an elegant dining area with views to the garden and hot tub.  A bedroom with two twin-size beds, a full bathroom (shower only), and a laundry room with washer/dryer complete the main floor of the home.

The second level features a beautiful, light-filled sitting lounge with rustic, wide-plank floors, a fireplace, fabulous art books, a master bedroom with king-size bed, a second bedroom with queen-size bed, and a ‘glam-inspired’ bathroom with a glass-block window, a ‘pink’ jetted tub and double sinks, separate shower, and heated tile floors. The second floor also features a west-facing balcony with seating for two, perfect for a late afternoon glass of wine. The Brick House shares a great collection of contemporary art by Vancouver Island artists, including Irma Soltonovich, Arden Rose, Claire Watson, and Graeme Masterton. It is also home to select vintage ceramics and objet d’art nestled amongst its nooks and crannies.

Interior design and art curation by Leah McDiarmid Creative.

Note: There is a tenant living onsite in the secondary cottage, separate from the Brick House, as per Tofino’s bylaws.

The Brick House is a visually stunning home located a few short steps from Chesterman Beach. It easily accommodated our family of 5 and is far more spacious than the pictures show. The location is perfect if you plan to surf or go sightseeing, we were able to walk down to the beach with our boards and it is just a short drive in to Tofino.

We had a lovely stay at the Brick House which is just minutes from the most beautiful beach in Tofino. Communication with the host was responsive and check-in was easy. The house is comfortable and exactly as pictured. The yard is very large with a fire pit, dining table, hot tub and giant lawn - it was a fun place to hang out when not at the beach.

The Brick House is a 2 minute or less walk to the fantastic Chesterman Beach and is perfectly stocked with all the things you need when renting a vacation property. Our family of six loved our stay here. Our host responded quickly to our questions and the house was a great fit for our family of myself, 3 younger kids and my wife in a wheelchair and her caregiver. The house is not wheelchair accessible and nor was it advertised to be, but it is definitely “wheelchair possible”. We absolutely loved our stay in the Brick House with so much character and minutes from the amazing Chesterman Beach ... we would definitely stay here again.

All the guests who stayed in the brick house for a corporate fishing trip loved the space and it was great dealing with the hosts to set everything up as a third party! - will look to book myself soon!
