Property description

What makes an ideal west coast vacation home is a place on the beach for a large or a small family, with indoor and outdoor fireplaces, and a hot tub with view. Driftwood Beach House has all of this. In addition, this property is a short drive from some great area attractions. The house is on the scenic Sooke to Port Renfrew Cowichan Circle route (the Pacific Marine Circle Route). Botanical Beach is at Port Renfrew and in the other direction there is Butchart Gardens. Victoria is a great place to visit with its quaint waterfront downtown, and Canada's oldest China Town.

There is a separate cabin that can be rented along with the house for $50 / night. This contains the 4th bedroom and the 3rd bathroom. The cabin is never rented out on its own. Posted rates do not include the cabin.

Additional information about rental rates

Fees:

  • cleaning fee C$250 + tax
  • Pet Fee C$25 + tax
  • Tax Rate 13%

Notes:

To rent the cabin add $50 / night. The cleaning fee is on sliding scale from $200 - $300 based on occupancy (# of people and the duration of the stay). Use $250 as a rough guide for the cleaning fee. The damage deposit ranges between $500 and $1000 depending on the number of people in the house. It is a temporary hold on your credit card that expires after you leave the property.

Traveller pays 50% at the time of booking and 50% 45 days before the booking begins. There is a damage deposit, but I left the damage protection section blank, because I don't want it listed as part of the booking cost estimate. Damage protection is done with a temporary hold on your credit card. The hold ranges between $500 and $1000, depending on the number of people in the house.


Please wait... Travel with confidence

Pay with an approved method (credit card, check, or bank transfer) to protect your payment up to $1,000. Before making a payment always call the owner at the number listed on our website, and never use instant money transfer services such as Western Union and MoneyGram.

Car: Recommended

This is your place if you love west coast beaches. The house has a beautiful beach, and is located a short drive from French Beach Provincial Park. Jordan River, and China Beach, Sombrio, and Port Renfrew are must-see locations. Humpback Whales and Orcas are a common sight in this area and are occasionally visible from Driftwood Beach House -- more than occasionally in the summer months! Book a whale watching tour or go salmon fishing to add adventure and great memories to your west coast trip. The months from November to April are good surfing months in this area.

 

Manager info

About: I have been renting out vacation homes in the Sooke area for over 10 years. I love the Sooke area as a place to live or to vacation. I like to go kayaking and mountain biking.

Why Sooke:
This home is one of the few in the area with low bank beach access. There is a gentle sloping path to the beach and about 3 steps down onto the beach. It is a great place to launch a kayak. Kite surfing and sailboarding opportunities are nearby.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The beach is the defining feature of this home, but the hot tub which is practically right on the beach makes it just right.
