The Waters Edge Shoreside Suites is on a private island joined by a causeway and surrounded by the sheltered waters of Ucluelet Harbour. Waters Edge provides the ideal location for adventures in the rugged, coastal wilderness along with quiet walks along long, sandy beaches. Inviting, spacious suites offer stunning views, West Coast décor and thoughtful functionality. Each includes a bedroom with a queen-sized bed, a living room with a sofa bed, a dining room, a full kitchen and a fireplace. The property offers a wide range of amenities, including an onsite Aveda Nuture Day Spa, plus complimentary Wi-Fi.

The stunning ferry voyage across the Strait of Georgia is the prelude to an awe-inspiring drive through ancient forests and past crystal-clear lakes. Once you arrive at Ucluelet (pronounced you-CLOO-let), you’ll find windswept, sandy beaches that stretch for miles.

If you venture out from your condo, you can explore Vancouver Island’s number one ranked Wild Pacific Trail (just 5 mins away) and meander along the rugged cliffs and shoreline of Vancouver Island’s west coast. Divided into three sections – Lighthouse Loop, Big Beach and Brown's Beach – the trail gives hikers unforgettable views of the ocean and outer reefs. In the area, there are almost unlimited activities like surfing, fishing, swimming, whale and bear watching, kayaking and beach-combing, year-round walking and hiking, and winter storm-watching.

The town of Ucluelet offers Canada’s first eco catch and release aquarium (open till end of Mar-Dec), lots of parks, a waterfront promenade along the inner side of the Ucluth Peninsula, restaurants, unique shops and galleries, and harbour facilities. Nearby, there’s the surfing town of Tofino and its world-famous beaches.
