Reef Point B & B is the realization of our dream to live on the wild
side of Vancouver Island
In 2002 we left our home in Lethbridge, Alberta on a trip to look for our
perfect oceanfront home. We searched all of the Gulf Islands, and the coasts of
Vancouver Island looking for that perfect house which would hug us and we would
know we were home. After a month of searching with no results we crossed the island,
as we had done many times before, to spend time at the Pacific Rim and visit with
friends. We looked at one oceanfront house for sale in Ucluelet but, alas, it
did not hug us.
We had agreed that we did not want to build so in our travels we did not look
at vacant land. However when we took a walk around Reef Point Beach Estates in
Ucluelet, we walked down a long winding driveway to a vacant lot on the ocean.
This acre of forest on the ocean hugged us so tight we knew we were home.
Our designer and builder in Ucluelet, Peter Stade of Sound Design, came highly
recommended. After an initial meeting we spent many hours conferring with Peter
by phone, fax and email and our perfect retreat was designed.
In June 2003 construction began on our dream home while we were still living
in Alberta .. We saw our house for the first time in October when the roof and
siding was on. It was a moment to remember walking down the long driveway and
turning a corner and there was a house where vacant land had been. The forest
hugged our house on the edge of the cliff. It was a moment to remember walking
to where vacant land had been.
When we moved to Ucluelet in January 2004, we moved into a construction zone,
the house at the drywall stage. For three months, with the help with family and
friends, we painted and laid floors and have a whole new appreciation for the
term “sweat equity”.
Our dream to open a B&B and an in-house photography gallery by the sea,
came true and on June 1st, 2004 we opened our doors to our first guests. Ever
since then we've been welcoming guests to our home and helping them make their
west coast vacation a time to remember.
We hope you will be one of our guests
at Reef Point Oceanfront B&B.
Come and enjoy our little piece of paradise
where there is always something to do or... absolutely nothing to do!
