About the Property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

LITTLE BEACH HOUSE - CLOSE TO OCEAN AS POSSIBLE WITH MILES OF INCREDIBLE VIEW

A Little Beach House is a newly built artistic retreat for a single adult visitor or a couple. Located on beautiful Gordons Beach (Orveas Bay), facing southwest overlooking the Salish Sea and the Olympic Penninsula of Washington,USA. A panoramic ocean vista with rare walk-on beachfront and amazing sunsets.

Three steps and you're on the beach. Walk for miles, beachcombing and discovering this natural wonderland. Eagles, gulls and ravens soar high above. Seals, otters, Orca (Killer) whales swim at your doorstep. The ocean a known 'hot spot' for first class fishing of salmon, halibut and cod. Wander and examine the smooth beach stones while on the look-out for the unusual flower rock. I dare you to go home without a few of these tucked in your suitcase. The driftwood piled high on the shores hint at the winter storms. Many visitors marvel and enjoy storm watching in season. On sunny days the waves sparkle. The sunset reflecting on the water can be breathtaking. Eventide in this west coast paradise suggests a romantic stroll, star gazing or building a small campfire (when permitted) to enhance the beach experience. On days of 'liquid sunshine' viewing the ocean and sky is not a problem from the covered gazebo or the warmth of the cottage. Nearby parks and hikes abound, both easy -going or wild and wooly. The capital and scenic city Victoria only 45 min. away as well as the International Airport. Eateries in the village of Sooke are both budget friendly and award winners of fine cuisine. You've travelled here to experience the best of the Pacific west coast and its delivered in spades when staying at our little beach house. All in all, an ideal place to discover and enjoy.

This newly built adult oriented cottage is bright, attractive, cosy and cheerful. You have sweeping ocean views. The open kitchen-living room has three sides of window showcasing the outdoor natural beauty. The fresh, clean and inviting decor suggests you relax and refresh from past day to day challenges. Wi-Fi availability keeps you in touch also telephone,CD,TV, if desired. A well supplied kitchenette opens to an inviting courtyard. This sunny wind-sheltered area is the ideal spot to read, write, or simply doze and dream. The small but perfect four piece bathroom includes a soaker tub. A seperate cozy bedroom with queen-size bed awaits. There you recline with a picture framed garden and water view. Be lulled to sleep with gentle surf sounds. From the living room french doors lead to a large sheltered gazebo. You'll barbeque your favorites while sipping a glass of wine enjoying the peaceful ambiance. Can life get any better? A surprise awaits around the corner...a private outdoor shower! What a refreshing and exhilarating experience. Having both hot and cold water you'll want to start every day this way. A Little Beach House inspires your creativity and spirituality. Time to wonder, discover, contemplate and meditate.


'Lucy' resident Shitzu, will meet and greet you (tail wagging).

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Juan de Fuca, BC, Canada:
I bought my home to relax and retire. This year 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..

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
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.
