  • Lovely in Everyway!

    "This lovely property opposite Beacon Hill Park more than met our needs, perfectly! The location is close to downtown and only 2 blocks from Cook St Village. This would be an ideal location, if you did not wish to rent a car but there is off street parking, if you do. Cook St. Village has just about everything you would need; groceries, health food stores, drug stores, restaurants and great coffee shops! The suite's location is also off the main traffic routes, so it is also very quite. The lower suite is wonderfully appointed with everything you would need to make your meals at home. It's as if the owners lived there and made sure you would have everything imaginable to feel at home. We were there for several months, so we prepared many of our meals in the suite. The two bedrooms are nicely separate, if you wanted to share with family or another couple. The furnishings were up to date and very comfortable for longer stays. The gas fireplace was a real treat and the private, side patio a lovely spot to enjoy our morning coffee. Nancy the manager, was great! Very professional, yet warm and most helpful with anything we might have wanted but honestly there were very few things that needed her attention. This property is a gem and we would make it our first choice, for our next visit to Victoria. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay, we are missing it already! Susan & Steven"

  • Roomy and Relaxing

    "My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this apartment. It was larger than expected with all the amenities needed. It felt like home away from home. We enjoyed the natural light coming from all the windows and skylights, the nice warmth coming from the gas fireplace, the large wall TV with sound system, all provided with some special treats to welcome us during the Christmas season. The owners were very friendly and welcoming."

  • Our stay at the Sooke River Cottage was nothing short of amazing.

    "As soon as we stepped onto this property, our breath was truly taken away. The outside of the cottage has a spanning yard space and a wraparound deck that is fitted with a picnic table, a barbecue, some lounge chairs and even a hot tub! The far end of the yard has steps that lead down to the Sooke River. We spent many days trekking up and down the river or just sitting near the bank admiring our incredible surroundings. I hesitate calling the Sooke River Cottage a cottage at all because it is more like a dream home! Seriously, Gary and Meredith, I want a copy of the blueprints ;). The house has one master bedroom with a washroom just off of it, a spacious sitting and dining area and a loft with another bed and sitting area. The kitchen was fully-equipped with everything we could ever need. All we brought along were a couple spices and we were set for a week of good food! The decorating was impeccable and was filled with all kinds of subtle details that made the cottage feel like a real home. I certainly could have gotten used to living there! When we weren't taking advantage of the amazing home and yard, we ventured out into the charming town of Sooke that has all the necessary amenities and some very friendly locals. If you go to the Village Foods Market, remember to mention you're a tourist - they give you a discount! We also found an off sale liquor store called Buffy's which we used when the provincial liquor board store was closed. The cottage was about an hour's drive from Victoria, and we enjoyed doing some sightseeing there as well. One of my favourite things about the trip was visiting the Sooke River Potholes. It was only 1.5 kilometres from the cottage, and we were pleased with all the hiking we got to do there. We spent almost an entire day at the Potholes, hiking around, swimming, and just enjoying the scenery. It's a picture perfect place that is just steps away from the cottage - what could be better? For beach-goers, we were about a 30-40 minute drive from the Juan de Fuca straight/ West Coast. We visited the popular French Beach, but my favourite spot was Sandcut Beach. It wasn't as busy, had a small hike from the parking lot to the beach, and we spent an entire day going up and down the beach enjoying the mountain view - fantastic! Our stay in Sooke was truly phenomenal. Gary and Meredith were amazing hosts who were incredibly welcoming and kind. I hope we will be able to return again soon. You gotta stay here! :)"

  • Heaven away from home

    "Michelle and Cam's guest house is the perfect retreat. Immaculate, well thought-out, convenient, homey, comfortable, and a spectacular view! Plus, Michelle's hospitality is evident in all of the amenities offered, and her promptness and warmth on communication. I would recommend staying here in a heartbeat. In fact, the only reason we might *not* come back to stay here is tht we loved it so much we want to move to the area :)"
