"Our family rented this "gem" beach house direct through owner Susan Scott from 10-20 July 2014. This location cannot be beat for sunsets (use west-side patio), full moon rise (viewed from around fire pit), morning sun with coffee (use east-side patio), outside eating (with propane BBQ and roll-out awning for shade if needed), happenstance wildlife viewing (bald eagles, loons, otters, herons etc - bring your binocs), strolls and beachcombing (step through the gate and the lagoon's your oyster - we brought our own kayaks). We visited the Galloping Goose, Sooke potholes, Whiffen Spit and Botanical Beach (at Port Renfrew) and made lasting memories all over. A relaxing, yet energizing vacation. The house has all the services you'd expect (as stated in the listing), all appliances worked fine (our beer and wine was cold quickly, the dishes came out clean as did our laundry, and we fresh-baked blueberry pie, choc-chip cookies, pizza and salmon dinner to perfection). Everything was neat and clean on arrival with sufficient spare linen, towels, cutlery, crockery & glassware. Bedrooms, bathrooms and lounge/dining/kitchen areas comfortably accommodated mom, dad, two adult daughters, a granny and one overnight visitor. We appreciated the understated, user-friendly décor (wood, tile, blue & skylights) and the easy-living ambience of the Beach House. We will be back !"
