Holiday Rental House
An architectural gem. Original design features of the house remain and combined with the spectacular view of the ocean, garden and forest combine to make this a very special property. The house has been carefully furnished to ensure a comfortable and relaxing vacation for couples or families. Fully equipped for a comfortable stay (linens, towels, kitchen supplies, kitchen appliances etc etc). Relax on the deck, the wood burning fireplace or one of the special seating areas located around the property on the walk down to the waterfront. Try fishing or swimming off the rocks, spotting eagles, seals and whales from the deck and waterfront. There are also all the amenities and activities (restaurants, museums, zip-lining, hiking, fishing tours, kayaking tours etc) available in Sooke and Victor...An architectural gem.

We had a wonderful time for New year's and my gf birthday. If we needed anything it was in the cupboards or a short drive away. Hiking in East Sooke park was phenomenal. Just stunning. The house was perfect and the view from the deck was perfect. I'd stay again. We posted lots of pics on Facebook and many of our friends asked for the details so they can try it.

We stayed for a week near the end of April. We discovered one week wasn't nearly long enough. Next time we will know better. The house was furnished with everything anyone would need except food. Food for cooked meals can be had at either of two big grocery stores in nearby Sooke. For eating out, the 17 Mile Inn (a favorite of ours) is a few minutes away just across highway 14. Also, there are lots of good seafood restaurants in Sooke. Nearby hiking trails abound and the East Sooke Regional Park, a really beautiful place, is a few minutes down the road from the cabin. Hint: Google the park, print their map and take it with you. The park is hard to find without a map. The most amazing part about the house is the view from the porch. It is spectacular.

For us a good value. My husband was impressed by how clean and well organised the house was. Really well equipped kitchen with all kind of spices and condiments... if you forgot something in your groceries you will find it. The porch is giant with lots of furniture and yes the view is amazing! Attention to details is all over the house and it creates a really welcoming feeling. Our bed was huge and very confortable. The sheets super soft. Jackie please tell me where you got those sheets and the really cool globular solar lights in the garden... Oh yes the garden has lots of birds for bird lovers and a beautiful pond. Get a cocktail and walk down to the water and sit on the bench and relax... that why you are there and you wont regret it. Sometimes the road is a little noisy but at night it is dead quiet. Sooke has a lot to offer. Lots of beautiful hikes and the town has every things you wish as far as groceries if you forgot something.. We are considering moving there. Thank you Rodney and Jackie. Good job.
