About June Bartel
In l992 I was on my first vacation to Sooke, saw and walked Gordons Beach and fell in love totally. I knew immediately this was the place for me. It felt so right. Two years later on another visit I found this place, bought it immediately and then went back home to Vancouver to sell, pack,and move. I have never looked back. All my friends describe this spot as 'healing, calming, rejuvenating'. Now retired and still enjoying life and people its time to share this bit of paradise.No matter what season, this is the place.
June Bartel purchased this Cottage in 2011
Why June Bartel chose Juan de Fuca
I bought my home to relax and retire. Later the seperate cottage was built to allow others the pleasure of a very special place. If you desire activity and adventure its all In the close area. If you desire solitude and peacefulness, thats a given. Come and enjoy and discover..
What makes this Cottage unique
Wow! to the private outdoor shower. It feels so-o-o naughty but nice. The ocean, the sky, the clouds, the waves, the surf, the rainbows,the colors, the marine wildlife, the marine traffic, the fresh fresh air-----and the peace.

A very welcoming place
We had the most pleasant stay again at the little beach house. There is hardly anything more thrilling, then to listen to the surf on the beach right outside the door.
Thank you Mrs.Bartel for another memorable holiday (and the bottle of wine).
This cottage overlooking the sea is a wonderfully relaxing place.
Hear the steady rhythm of the surf and admire the beauty of the sea and sky, from inside this cozy cottage or outside on the sheltered patio. The pebbled beach extends all the way to ... I don't know, we had to turn back at some point, to barbecue and then watch the sunset. The kitchen is well-equipped and the house is self-contained. It's a private spot and shops are just ten minutes away in Sooke. June is an excellent host, friendly and helpful. It snowed when we were there and it was beautiful. We'll come back!
delightful scenery and creative decor
The crash of the waves on the beach, the wild of Vancouver Island's west coast within an easy drive, and June's thoughtful decor made the cottage a friendly and welcoming holiday. Thank you!
My husband and I had a wonderful stay at the little beach house. June and Lucy are so welcoming and made us feel right at home. The house is perfect for a romantic getaway and very comfortable. If you love the ocean, hiking in spectacular ancient forests and watching amazing sunsets sipping wine on the gazebo, this is the perfect place for you. We will be back soon!
Had a wonderful stay, perfect weather and even swam in the ocean. Very quiet and relaxing and hope to stay again soon!
My husband and I absolutely would recommed the little beach cottage. The pictures were reflective of the actual cottage. The gazebo was well sheltered. The sunsets were amazing. Lucy the dog visited everyday and was very friendly. This cottage is worth looking at for a vacation. June was a perfect host and respected our privacy.
Numerous parks and beaches nearby for strolling and hiking, both easy going and wild and wooly. A wildlife paradise with eagles, whales and more. Windsurfing, kayaking, fishing at your door.
