The neighbourhood

Wild Light is located in a quiet residential neighbourhood close to town. There is very light traffic in the area because there is a dead end road right after the cul-de-sac that Wild Light is on. The neighbours are a mixture of families, resort staff accommodations and a few other vacation homes.

Getting around

In the summer, Tofino Bus has scheduled trips to and from the beaches. There are bike rentals and a great 8 km bike path that starts down the street from Wild Light and takes you out to the beaches. There is only one taxi in town. Most places are in walking distance.

Other things to note

There are no laundry facilities at Wild Light. The laundry mat is a 10 minute walk away.

Great place and a wonderful host. The location was perfect for walking into town for dinner and a short drive to the beaches. Marnie was a great host who gave us some great suggestions for activities and places to check out.

Marnie's place was wonderful. We had the most amazing time. The house is well appointed, large rooms, very clean and nicely decorated. Walk into town was super easy and we got some fantastic recommendations from Marnie. Will definitely stay again and will highly recommend this place to all our friends.

The Wild Light Guest House was a wonderful place to stay for a family trip in Tofino. The house was spacious and extremely well equipped - particularly the kitchen. We loved that the house was walking distance into town and in a quiet neighbourhood. Would stay here again in an instant - thanks so much Marnie!

Stayed for three nights with family visiting from out of town. Kitchen was well equipped and good size for cooking in, gas stove and big barbecue were great. There was a spice rack but no salt and pepper which was a bit of a surprise. Not a big deal, but good for future people coming to know to bring. There was also no shampoo or conditioner or soap in the showers which I wasn't prepared for and buying them in Tofino is pricey so good for people to remember to bring along. Beds were comfortable and showers had good pressure and were nice and hot. Surf gear not allowed to hang to dry indoors so had to put on wet, cold suits in morning which was not ideal. Close to town though so easy for us to come and go as we pleased and keypad on door made it easy to have our group split up as desired. Overall good stay with family, but bit small for 7 people (as the owner had warned it might be). Property was clean and it was nice to be walking distance to some restaurants and shops.

Response from Marnie:
There was some salt after the last check out but one of the previous guests had taken the pepper. There has never been a request for shampoo or conditioner so it doesn't seem like a priority for people. There is soap in all the bathrooms. I've never told people they can't dry wetsuits inside the house. It's not recommended to rinse wetsuits in the bathroom and it's good to let them drip dry a bit outside but I usually tell guests to bring them in at night and hang them in the bathroom to dry.

Marnie was fantastic. She greeted us upon our arrival and spent several minutes with us, describing the town and giving us recommendations for our stay in Tofino. The house was very comfortable and well located.

I am a full-time freelance photographer in Tofino, specializing in portraits and weddings.. I started working in the Tofino tourism industry in 1994 because I love the land, the ocean and the lifestyle. It is the wild light that makes it one of the most spectacular places to photograph in the world.

I love to travel and have visited and lived in many places around the world. Tofino is definitely my favourite and I look forward to welcoming many Tofino travellers to the Wild Light Guest House.
