Tidbits from Tim

Tim Hackett - Owner, Long Beach Lodge Resort

April 2024


After an amazing March with both Spring Break and Easter, we are looking forward to welcoming our April guests. April’s the last month before the late spring and early summer seasons really get underway.

During April, Tofino enjoys nice, warmer spring weather, with all of our outdoor activities including biking, surfing, beach and dog walking, and hiking. Also don’t forget our food and beverage opportunities. I think my favourite guest package this month has to be our three night visit with electric bikes included for two days. It is now possible to ride all the way through the national park to Ucluelet, a ride of over 30 KM! For the less energetic including me, Tofino is an easy 8 KM ride away, with all its attractions and shopping. Also our two night bed and brunch package including breakfast each day and an additional $100 food credit, is a no brainer! You never have to leave the resort.

I am very excited to announce that Trevor Peulen is returning to the resort as General Manager, starting on or before June 1st. Trevor has been managing a hotel in Victoria but wishes to come back to Tofino. Our staff are all really pleased that he is returning, as am I. He will be a great asset in assisting both our guests and staff. Many of you already know Trevor. He will be delighted to reconnect with many of our valued guests. 


The other big news is that our Mayor and the majority of council have banned immediately the illegal Short Term Rentals in Tofino. This will have a huge positive impact on our community and residents, as without illegal STR’s, housing will become available and more affordable for residents, and there will again be long term rentals on the market. The ban on illegal STR’s was long overdue and their predominantly out of town investors or speculators, will no longer be able to fly under the radar.

Best wishes for a happy April and warmer weather.
