For a home away from home experience, you can’t go wrong with a vacation rental. In Ucluelet, there are endless vacation rental options to fit any budget and desire. One thing is certain to come with all of them though, you’ll feel right at home on the west coast of Vancouver Island.

What makes a great vacation home? That’s up to you and it’s the best part of having one as an accommodation option. You could live in your dream ocean-front condo for a weekend, or post-up in a swanky loft. Choose the amenities you want: washer and drier, fully stocked kitchen, parking; and how luxurious, or cozy you desire. A vacation rental can be a truly catered experience and offers insight into what it would be like to live there. For some, you don’t even have to meet anyone – the place is yours from start to finish.

Vacation rentals are a huge market in Ucluelet, so there are endless options for you to pick from. Many are ocean view, and pretty much all of them are just a short walk away from downtown. There are plenty of luxury options, as well as more low-key budget-friendly selections. From large houses with hot tubs, to cozy cabins and stunning condos, the town has something for every taste, too. With so many things to do in the summer, it’s nice to come back to a place that feels like home and be able to put your feet up after a big adventure. Not to mention, you can cook a fantastic meal in your own kitchen, which breaks up that endless parade of restaurant meals when you travel.

If you want to have a local show you around and let you in on all the secrets, a vacation rental can also be a great option for that. Ucluelet locals are friendly, and often welcome questions about the area. Not only do they know a ton about local wildlife, activities and the best spots to eat, some might even take you there themselves and show you. Then, when you return, you already have some friends, and know all the best places to go. You’ll also feel like you know Ucluelet better than you might have if you’d taken that room at the resort.

Tofino Beaches worth visiting

Tofino is only 30 mins north of Ucluleet and there are many beaches in between the two towns. Wild Pacific Trail is one of the prettiest hikes in the world and that is well worth going to see. The Wild Pacific Trail is south of Ucluelet about 2 miles and has a very nice trail. Big Beach is also worth visiting and there is a public access, however you must find parking in the Community Center across the street. Just north of Ucluelet about 10 mins is the Wickaninnish Beach that also has a restaurant overlooking it. As you keep driving up there are many small and large beaches to explore and enjoy the natural beauty. Long Beach is the most popular. Chesterman Beach is rated one of the top 25 beaches in North America and is north of Long Beach. There are many beaches and trails in between Ucluelet and Tofino and the Tofino guide is great resource for beaches and trails with incredible pictures that will leave with a large itinerary for coming to visit the west coast.

Accommodations in Ucluelet a great deal

Tofino may get most of the attention from government advertisers, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find affordable accommodation on the west coast. You will also find a quiet town that doesn’t even seem that busy in July and August which are the busiest months of the summer season. Ucluelet took quite a bit longer to upgrade accommodation and bring in a couple resorts, but it has caught up in scale and you can find some great high end accommodation here overlooking the ocean.

Ucluelet is only 30 mins to Tofino and half that to the start of the beaches which will be on your left side as you drive up the coast. It is worth spending a few days exploring. You may want to start with the Wild Pacific Trail in Ucluelet though, as it is one of the prettiest trails in the world. Have a great time on your stay here!
