Personal fireplaces, spacious kitchens, and private patios are enough to make the accommodations at Cox Bay Beach Resort sound enticing. Add to that their beachfront location near laid-back Tofino, just outside Pacific Rim National Park on Vancouver Island, and you've got a Pacific Slope dream home.

Pinch yourself during a one-night stay for two in a One Bedroom Beach House, Sundays through Thursdays between February 14 and May 11 (C$99) or a two-night stay inclusive of a Friday or Saturday night between March 16 and May 11 (C$268). All dates are 2012.

After you've woken up in your king- or queen-size bed, brew a pot of coffee in your full kitchen, then head for the living room, which is equipped with a queen-size sofa bed and a TV with DVD and CD player.

You'll also have access to a fitness facility with a meditation and yoga room; a sauna and outdoor hot tub; and a lounge outfitted with a local San Juan stone Rumford wood-burning fireplace and a library of books, magazines, and board games.

In winter, Tofino becomes Canada's pre-eminent spot to spy storms. Seriously. In recent years, this town on the Clayoquot Sound has drawn hundreds of travelers who revel in daydreaming by the fire while a maritime tempest rages outside. When it's not raining, make a trip out to nearby Hot Springs Cove.

Come March, the Pacific Rim Whale Festival celebrates the start of whale-watching season (think 20,000 gray whales and events like the Chowder Chowdown). Foodies shouldn't miss the locally caught seafood prepared with Tofino creativity at Schooner's Restaurant. And surfers: You've found your holy grail in Tofino, named the continent's best surf town in 2010 by Outside Magazine.

This hamlet at the far-north reaches of Vancouver Island is starting to sound like California—sleek, beachy accommodations, ultra-fresh seafood, and epic surf? It's Malibu without the pretense. Oh, and a few dramatic storms.

  • "Tofino combines the rugged Canadian frontier (the road ends here, literally) with the mellow vibe of a California surf town—think Mendocino in a toque."
