Even though there are only five units, they are well appointed with full kitchens. Some are one room (think studios) or separate bedrooms and living area with pullout sofa. Small dining area with table and chairs. Only downfall is no air conditioning... however, most of the time it isn't needed. We were provided fans to help cool the area.

Arrived six days ago and unfortunately will be leaving tomorrow. What can I say that hasn't already been said? We love Tofino, our second visit and now having stayed at the Himwitsa Lodge wouldn't want to stay anywhere else. Our room was clean and spacious, with a beautiful view over the working small harbour across to the mountains beyond. The...

On a recent trip to Tofino we stayed at House of Himwitsa. Our room was one of 6 above a gallery, shops & restaurant. Accommodations feature a balcony with hot tub and water view. There are two rooms with spacious balconies. Ours was not one of them. It was what I expected for the price. We had one bedroom, open...

What a wonderful surprise to find such a great place. Everything just perfect, from the friendly hosts to the idyllic location. A great suite equipped with everything needed to ensure a 'hassle free' stay. Comfortable, and great views. Excellent restaurant downstairs and a stones throw away from the regular shops. We should have stayed longer,watching the sun go down every...

always something happening on the bay. a very interesting place with friendly service and great location. The few times over the week we were there we asked for something the service was brilliant and friendly. But the view was to die for.

House of Himwitsa is located right on the bay in the center of Tofino. We were very pleasantly surprised arriving to the comfortable lodge. The check in was seemless. The room was lovely and very good sized with two double beds. There was a full, small kitchen most handy to prepare quick breakfasts. A balcony with a view of the...

House of Himwitsa is located directly behind the Tofino marina, offering a stunning view out across the Clayoquot Sound. You come to Tofino for the views and you won't find one better than this.
