Property Description

Located a three-minute stroll to north Chesterman Beach, Steller’s Jay Retreat is a West Coast design inspired, light and art-filled home. Named for the resident Cyanocitta Stelleri, or Steller’s Jay bluebirds, it welcomes surf enthusiasts and families.

Steller’s Jay Retreat is situated in Chesterman Beach Estates on a lush, landscaped property. The large, private deck has a hot tub, outdoor shower, BBQ, picnic table and comfortable seating of locally-made Adirondack chairs by Jeff Arnett, providing for relaxed outdoor living.

Steller’s Jay Retreat offers 2500 sq. ft. of fabulous indoor space on two levels.  The main level features open-concept living, offering a spacious, chef-worthy and well-stocked kitchen, a gorgeous dining room with large picture windows overlooking the garden, and a cozy living room with gas fireplace, and locally-made bespoke furniture by Paul Owen Woodworks.  A semi-bathroom (toilet and sink) are conveniently located on the main floor. And, a fantastic media room/library with hand-adzed wall paneling, comfortable, contemporary furnishings, a custom entertainment unit with 47” flat-screen TV, and a selection of books including local authors completes the main level.

The second floor has three bedrooms and a second bathroom accessed by a Peter Ramos inspired photography-filled catwalk. The master bedroom features a king-size bed, and a private ensuite bathroom with separate shower, soaker tub and two sinks. The second bedroom offers a queen-size bed, and the third bedroom offers two twin-sized beds. And, a light-filled reading lounge completes the upstairs level.

Steller’s Jay Retreat offers original artworks and photography by 20th c. and contemporary artists including Jack Wilkinson, Peter Ramos, Nicholas Vandergugten, Marion Evamy, Arden Rose, Fred Peters, Paula Callaghan and Graeme Masterton. Bespoke furnishings by Paul Owen Woodworks add elegance and West Coast panache.

This is an amazing place for a family holiday in a wonderful location close to the beach. We enjoyed the deck and hot tub and also the cosy snug. We had a great night's sleep there and even spotted a Stellars Jay who visited in the mornings. The house had everything we needed for our first stay in Tofino.

The house has a great location close to the beach, and also has plenty of space downstairs for a family group, with separate dining and TV/reading areas. And there's the added bonus of being walking distance from the famous Tacofino van!

Beautiful home in a quiet yet walkable location to the beach and shops! Would definitely recommend to others and plan to return on a future trip to Tofino!
