The big sell: Built in 1998, this oceanfront Ucluelet home started off life as the Amphitrite Inn. It has a picturesque setting adjacent to the Wild Pacific Trail and is nestled away from some of the elements due to its position behind a tidal island. The property has been tastefully designed and built to ensure the privacy of its guests with a separate kitchen, living area and three bedrooms — all with ensuites — on the lower floor. The upper floor has a recently updated kitchen, large dining room and great room with panoramic ocean views, two bedrooms (again with ensuites) and a family bathroom. The home has an open-concept layout, with skylights that allow a generous amount of natural light, and a striking kitchen with white cabinets that contrast with the hardwood floors. The natural landscaping and beach-style rear yard means the property could stay as a B&B or could be transformed into a private West Coast home or vacation getaway spot.
