  • Inn of the Sea Beauty

    "My husband and I spent a relaxing week in this fabulous condo! Space was limited but adequate for the two of us. The condo was well appointed, nice furnishings and most of all peacefull and QUIET. The bed and linens also excellent. A great week by the sea!!! Thanks Pat for sharing your lovely condo. I would definately recommend this property..."

  • 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! :)"

  • Hot tub heaven

    "We had a lovely 2 night stay in Jane's duplex apartment. Jane was a welcoming and friendly host who's apartment is spacious and comfortable. It is situated just a 15-20 drive from downtown Victoria in a tranquil spot overlooking an inlet. It was a fantastic place to recharge our batteries after a long day traveling and busy day sightseeing. We especially appreciated the hot tub which really did relax our weary bones. We would recommend staying here to anyone wishing home comforts and a touch of luxury."

  • Sidney Mews

    "Lovely accommodation! Nicely furnished and very well equipped. Well located in Sidney for easy walking along the ocean front and very close to the main street in town. Barb was easily accessible and a pleasure to meet. Would stay again in a heartbeat!"
