                  East Sooke is rich with hiking trails and unique beaches. Aylard Farm Park is just a 5 minute drive away and offers a beach that children love. People swim in the ocean water at Aylard Farm. There are many opportunities for kayaking. Charter fishing guides are available. Skye House has a dock, so you may dock your own boat.

                  Year Purchased: 1986

                  About: We have rented Skye House for holiday stays in the past. It was popular and people loved the place, but we took it off the rental market to renovate the bathrooms. Now we are offering Skye House for vacation stays again.

                  Why East Sooke:
                  We think this property has it all -- beaches, hilltop views, a dock for our boat, and your boat. There are 2 houses on the property, but there is good separation between them. The other house is our private residence. You won't know we're there (if we are there).

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The hot tub has the best view by day or night. There is a dock. This is a very romantic private location. Being within a few kilometers of the Galloping Goose Trail, it would be a terrific destination for cyclists coming from Victoria, Langford, or even further away.
