Rachel Will Be Your Host



Slack Tide Inn, (Business Number # 20210023), opened in 2015, is a cozy, family-run enterprise situated across from Cox Bay on the outskirts of Tofino, BC. Nestled in the rainforest bordering the UNESCO biosphere, about 20 minutes from the mudflats, this south-facing property is home to hummingbirds, bluejays, eagles, ravens and myriad other birds; the occasional wolf runs through at dawn or dusk. Bears and cougars have been sighted nearby. Slack Tide Inn provides easy foot-access to surfing, hiking, walking and beach time. This small, 6-person Inn, is animal, baby and child-friendly. There is also a black cat who lives nearby and likes to visit.



Slack Tide Inn offers a peaceful stay beyond the vibrant, artsy, surf-gourmet hub of historic Tofino.


On one side, is a 2-bedroom suite with queen beds, which sleeps 4. It has a kitchenette, living room, and a bathroom with a shower. There's a

comfy living area and a deck with a propane BBQ out looking surrounding old-growth across from Cox Bay.

Downstairs, the lower Rainforest Suite is a small 2-person suite with a queen bed, kitchenette with a mini-fridge, two-burner stovetop, and a bathroom with a shower.

Guests Love Slack Tide Inn

'We came to Tofino for our first time from California and were blown away. It's like a Canadian Hawaii.We loved how gentle the energy is in Slack Tide Inn.

Rachel taught a great apres-surf Yoga class which we were able to book when we wanted it. We brought the dog and felt super welcomed and comfortable.'

Additional Info​

Please bring your own food, and
drinks, condiments, and bathroom items. Cox Bay and the other stunning beaches of Tofino are
wonderful places to picnic, so a picnic basket and beach blanket would be good to throw in the
vehicle before you depart.

These suites can be rented together or individually.

Please note:
*Slack Tide Inn, like many rural properties, is on a sewer pump, which is a more delicate plumbing system.
Please do not flush tampons, condoms, baby wipes or anything other than toilet paper and waste. There is a
$150 charge for sewer pump back-up related to flushing 'unwelcome objects'. There are reminders on each
toilet as this can be a bit of a jump for people used to 'larger urban area' toilets, which are more solid and so
can handle other items.
*This is a wood-frame building. Cigarette smoking is not permitted on site at all.
*We ask that guests wind noise down by 10 pm out of respect to other Inn guests and our neighbours. This is
is a quiet, relaxing, back-to-nature space.
*It is wise to bring or (buy out here) bear bells and bear spray. From May-Oct, wild animal sitings are
somewhat frequent outside of town.
Thanks for respecting the limits we require on this rare peice of Canadian soil.
