With crystals like lapis lazuli and smoky quartz embedded in its foundation and interior walls, Tofino Hummingbird Cottage is designed to tap into Tofino’s unique healing energy. The 1,450 sq.ft. interior features the soothing palette of nature, works by Vancouver Island artists and a sustainable ethos, from no-VOC paint to beautiful floors of recycled vinyl and sustainable cork, known for its warmth and ability to soften sound.
The living room features a cozy Norweigian JØTUL gas fireplace and sectional sofa and chairs custom-designed for style and comfort. In the kitchen, enjoy preparing and cooking your food on countertops of quartz Caesarstone and a gas stove with a true convection oven. Tofino’s artisan shops allow plentiful access to fresh seafood, organic vegetables and artisan foods.
The cottage lays serenely in a coastal marine landscape, designed in collaboration with Tofino organic master gardener Kris Simmons of Captured Light Gardening. Surrounded by cedar trees, long revered for their spiritual significance and as symbols of strength, visitors can relax on any of the three decks. The grounds of the cottage are ideal for meditation or listening to the distant thunder of the waves, the whisper of wind through the cedar trees and the sound of birds.
