Sooke apartment description

Just past the town of Sooke, on the beautiful southwest coast of Vancouver Island. World famous hiking trails, beaches and wilderness just minutes from your door. Spectacular, panoramic views of the ocean (Strait of Juan de Fuca) and Olympic Mountains. Natural beauty and tranquility … all in one stay.

Your luxury one bedroom suite is in a separate section of our new “West Coast contemporary” custom built home, completed in 2008 on 2.5 acres. With an amazing south vista view from this high point, experience both the beautiful sunrises in the east and breathtaking sunsets to the west.

Open the door to your bright, beautifully decorated open concept suite. In about 700 square feet, you will have everything you need to feel at home. The fully-equipped kitchen has a cork floor, custom cupboards and pantry, island with double sink, and new full-size appliances including dishwasher, refrigerator, range, microwave. The bright dining nook with seating for 4, has large windows facing the ocean/mountains.

With floor to ceiling windows, the living area offers great ocean and mountain views. Cuddle up on the cozy furniture around the gas fireplace with a book from your bookshelf, or watch satellite TV. A DVD player and selection of movies are available. Internet connection is in both the living room and bedroom, along with wireless access.

Sleep deeply on the luxurious King size bed with cozy down bedding in the separate, private bedroom (synthetic bedding available on request). Ocean breezes, along with a ceiling fan, will keep you at a comfortable temperature. The queen-size sofabed in the living area accomodates up to 2 additional guests (bedding provided).

When you open your sliding patio doors from the living area, you'll find a private covered patio with table and chairs for 4, and Ducane Gas BBQ. Your own private sunny patio extends from the covered patio…...lounge chairs await. Snooze in the sun, listen to the soft trickle of the water feature, soak in the vista ocean/mountain views and wait for the deer to pass by in front of you on the way to their thicket.

Enjoy a relaxing bubble bath in your sparkling 4-piece bathroom, with warm in-floor ceramic heating, acrylic tub/shower and fluffy towels.

Or, head outside to the hot tub for a glass of wine while you watch the sun go down over the ocean. Heavenly!

We love it here ... we know you will, too!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2008

              About the owner: We came to this beautiful part of the world after winding down from our fast-paced lives, ready to enjoy more leisure time while still keeping active. Signy was a financial planner who built a successful business over 15 years and then retired to become the key person in running our vacation suite. Doug was a Vice-President of People Development for a major pharmaceutical company and now does executive coaching part time. He is also a fine cook, and now has more time to indulge in his favourite pastime!

              Why the Owner Chose Sooke:
              The 'Wild West Coast' of Vancouver Island appealed to us as an unspoiled wilderness area where we could live and still be close to urban amenities. Sooke is an area of tremendous diversity, with original residents involved in the area's fishing and logging activities, along with its more recent residents including outdoor enthusiasts, artists, musicians, and retirees. We both enjoy the challenges of landscaping our new rural property, while still finding time to hike and explore this marvellous area, and take advantage of the cultural attractions of nearby Victoria. Now, our days are still busy, but filled with exploring the many natural wonders that we are so grateful to be near!

              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
              If you are looking for a place to get away from urban pressures, but still be close enough to have some luxuries at the end of the day, then Sooke is the ideal location. It is an area of contrasts. You can be in the wilderness within a 15 minute drive, and return later in the day to treat yourself to spa treatment or a meal in a five-star restaurant. You can outfit for local fishing or kayaking....or spend the day touring artisan studios. There is a huge emphasis here on 'living green'....increasing our sustainability and environmental responsibility is a way of life for many of us who live here. When you visit, you will see why....the pristine wilderness at our doorstep is increasingly rare, all over the world.
