About gordon fika

My wife and I used to travel west to the Vancouver area Islands with our two children when they were small. We explored the beaches and tidal pools enjoying morning coffee while the kids beach combed, went fishing and hiking, and kayaking. The ocean always has wildlife activity geese, otters, seal and a lot of crab, shrimp and fish.

We rented a house out here in Sooke in 2000 after we completed a week of trekking on the West Coast Trail - and it was a luxurious end to a great experience.

gordon fika purchased this house in 2005

Why gordon fika chose Vancouver Island

We wanted an area close to a city, yet away from it all.

We selected this property because of its spectacular view and quietness, and its location: it's just a short walk to serious coffee, a number of restaurants and groceries.

We just built (sep. 2012) a contemporary west coast style inviting house designed by a Victoria architect: it is quite an improvement to the old house torn down in 2007.

We wanted a clean, efficient and strong house. It is warm and cosy, energy efficient, and built to current seismic standards.

What makes this house unique

WOW, is the word heard most often when people come for a visit. We have a truly stunning view from most rooms in the house and the guest house. You can walk down the 25 steps and explore the beach in low tide. Or sit out in comfort on the decks looking right into the water.

On clear nights you can watch the moon rise and travel, accross the Sooke basin, its reflecting lights playing on the often still waters of the basin.

Handy but away from it all.

Just perfect

  • 5 of 5

The house is just perfect. Literally It has everything you need. Attention to every detail. Great location as well. Close to market and other restaurants just less than 5 min drive. The host Gordon is very helpful too. Definitely will come back again. Only one thing was that the house cleaning service came at 11am but the check out time says 12. But its not a big deal as we were pretty much all ready

A breathtaking view from almost every room!

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful modern home with the latest appliances, well supplied with extra bedding, pantry basics, and thoughtful extras. Spacious rooms gave everyone in our party of 7 their own space with lots of central areas too. Amazing views of the water and lots of wildlife sightings kept everyone's attention. Fantastic!

Exceptional experience

  • 5 of 5

We visited this beautiful property in May 2017 (4 adults and 3 children). The home exceeded our expectations. The house itself is stunning and obviously cared for meticulously - everything is in excellent condition and very clean. It made us feel like we were the first ones to have rented the property. The setting is spectacular, right on the waterfront, and the kids enjoyed walking in the water and collecting shells at low tide. The house is stocked with everything you could possibly need. Arrangements with Gordon and Theresa were seamless. We hope to come back as soon as we can.

The house and setting were amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The house is architecturally beautiful, and the setting was perfect. The proximity to shopping and dining was great. The property is lovely. And the house was extremely well equipped in terms of the kitchen and bathrooms. And there is lots to do in Sooke and the surrounding area. Dining at Point No Point was great, as was the Sooke Harbour House.
