About Chad Verch
Pictured are two of the owners (Uncle and nephew) We love West Coast life and all that it has to offer in beauty and recreation.
Chad Verch purchased this House in 1950
Why Chad Verch chose East Sooke
This property has been in the family since 1950 with the newer house being constructed in 2003 from lumber harvested and milled on the property. The older cottage (not a rental) was built in the early 1920's with an addition added in the late 1940's. This property has over 900 feet of waterfront with a deep water dock, 2 beaches and a rocky point. You can catch legal sized rock and dungeness crab right of the dock. (remember you need a salt water licence that can be purchased online http://www.pac.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/fm-gp/rec/licence-permis/application-eng.html) and the area is abundant in sea and wild life. It truly is a piece of paradise!
What makes this House unique
Southern Vancouver Island has a mild climate with pleasant warm, dry summers and mild, wet conditions in spring, fall and winter. It rarely snows in the lower areas of this region and if it does snow it usually doesn't stay around long. At Heron Point House you will see many varieties of wildlife, both in the water and on land. It is common to see deer, peacocks, otters, raccoons, seals, hummingbirds and bald eagles daily. If you are lucky you may even see one of the local great horned or barred owls. Bears and cougars frequent the area and you may catch a glimpse of one while enjoying one of the many hiking trails nearby.

Super relaxing stay !
We stayed one week in this fabulous house, and we enjoyed our stay tremendously !
We were three adults, and never got in each others way. The house is completely equipped, in excellent condition, and very peacefully set. Great propane BBQ, hot tub, wood stove and super dining room, makes this place a perfect one. Communication with the owner Chad was flawless.
It is very quiet, and having the TV in the loft on the second floor meant we did not use it !
All in all, very highly recommended ! You will love it !
A perfect family getaway
This is truly the nicest VRBO rental we've ever stayed at. For our family of four (kids 6 and 8) and grandparents visiting from England, there was the perfect amount of spaciousness (with the TV loft area not being required as a bedroom....just a play/lounging area). The dock was used daily for crabbing and and the beach front was filled with treasures to explore for kids and adults alike. The views are absolutely breathtaking and the proximity of this property to some great (fairly easy for kids/seniors) hiking was ideal for us. Thanks to Chad and family for sharing your treasure with us!
The property is great! Nice location. I was wondering if check in time ( 4:00p.m.) and checking out (11a.m) looks just. Especially
during winter time that is dark and makes the driving difficult . Thank you.
Thank you for your review!
We often will change our check in and check outs when requested to do so based on whether another client is going to be checking in that day. We would have done so in this case if asked. We hope that Christmas was great for your family out there.
We live on the Island, but found the perfect place for an easy escape. The property is amazing, with easy access to great hikes and outdoor activities. We had a mixed bag of weather, however found that you could find well sheltered hikes nearby. The property has lots of space for playing games and being outside. You can't beat the view from the hot tub, or the smell of the fireplace.
Booking the location was very easy, and no hassle getting access to the property. It was very clean on arrival, and came equipped with everything we needed.
Would definitely come again, and recommend to any family or friends
|If you are looking to experience the rugged West Coast this is the place to go! Lots to see and do while still feeling rested and definitely relaxed. The place had it all and made us feel at home. Location was ideal for exploring the outdoors. Kids had a blast looking for clams and just playing on the beach. It was such a treat sitting in the hot tub enjoying the breathtaking view after a day of sightseeing. This place is ideal for all ages. No disappointments!!!!
Great for our family
This was our first VRBO experience for our family of five - and a great experience it was! The property is clean, well equipped and well maintained. The house had everything we needed and more.
We will definitely recommend this property to our family and friends and will be back!
