"Arriving at the Heron Point House outside of Sooke, we immediately fell in love with the home, the site, the privacy and the amenities that were provided - the hot tub and beach, too. All we had to do was bring our own, personal items and some groceries we picked up, en route.
We found everything needed; sound system with the flexibility to direct the sound to specific parts of the property (inside & out) added to the experience. We even brought a couple of DVD's with us and were able to enjoy a family 'movie' night.
When preparing meals in the kitchen and on the BBQ; everything was close at hand. As needed, the house came supplied with almost everything needed to keep things neat and tidy. Miscellaneous items could be picked up locally.
On our last night in the unit, we decided to head out for a family meal at the 17 Mile Pub where, earlier in the week, we rode the nearby ADRENA-LINE Zip Line ride and had two full hours traversing the mountain face back down to the home base.
While in the area, took couple of trips out to the Sooke 'Potholes' swim area and found the first, large pool ideal for our wading, stone-skipping and stream-crossing fun! Other trips we enjoyed in town included: a lunch at the Old Venice (?) Bakery, ice cream at the Candy shop just across the street from the Bakery, the Meadery (think wine made with honey), nature watching, sunsets and jogging along East Sooke Road.
Overall. The owners were great people to deal with; due to circumstances beyond their control, we were not able to enjoy wood fires during our time as a result of the dry conditions on the Island. A great stay, indeed!"

"First time being in Sooke and we decided to stay at the Surfside Cottage. The cottage really made our trip. It has everything you need to just stay in and relax. Full working kitchen, BBQ outside and a outdoor hot tub. It slept 6 of us comfortably. The cottage it right on the edge of the coast so the view was amazing. There is a wooden bridge and staircase that leads down to the peddle beach. The beach is super private. Such a great place."

"We had a great time staying in June's cottage, such a great location, literally steps to the beach. June was very kind and attentive, making us feel very welcome. There is so much to explore nearby, or if you want to just kick back and relax, the gazebo off of the living area is perfect for a glass of wine and the sunset. We'll definitely be back, our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer!"

"What an amazing week we spent at the Lighthouse Point retreat celebrating our 40th anniversary. Words just seem inadequate to express the peacefulness, solitude, and pure sense of tranquility that we experienced all week long. Every window had stunning views of either the ocean or the rain forest. No need for TV as the property manager Dawn (who is wonderful) summed it up.. you have the nature channel on 24/7. We saw sea otters, seals, hummingbirds, stellar jays, and had an eagle visit for a couple of days in a nearby tree. We took our chairs close to the ocean front.. my husband fishing off the rocks and myself, gazing at wind formations on the surface of the water, or the large ships in the distance or just listening to the waves crash on the rocks below. Food for the soul. We had our coffees and applies on the patio and ate all our meals ( except one) with an ocean view table!! Doesn't get any better. The cottage was very elegantly decorated and equipped with everything.. a coffee press which we love, washer and dryer, lovely dishes, impeccably clean bedding and linens and even a first aid kit. They have thought of everything!! This area around Sooke is beyond beautiful and we visited rain forests and amazing beaches that can take your breath away. This sweet cottage was the perfect place for us to celebrate our anniversary.. an oasis in the busyness of life. We left not wanting to leave and are hoping that we one day we can come again. Thank you Eleana."
