Car: Recommended

Main attractions are the many wild beaches with the ocean either stormy or calm as glass. See ocean wildlife such as Orcas, seals, sea lions and otters. For birdwatchers there are eagles, ospreys, owls, grebes, loons, herons and even the occasional pelican. There are world ranked restaurants such as Sooke Harbour House specializing in serving local produce. Fishing in the area is perhaps the best of the Island. Whale watching is well worth the experience. Bring your camera!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: My daughter Jo and myself manage the cottage and live on the estate. The cottage was designed for complete privacy - although if you need/want personal contact we are nearby. We love the Sooke area , know it well and are always delighted to introduce people to it.

Why the Owner Chose Sooke, BC, Canada:
1400 ft of wild ocean frontage with two accessible private beaches pretty much sums it up. There are also magnificent tall trees, trails through the rain forest, gardens, the beach house and stunning views across the Strait of Juan de Fuca to the Olympic Mountains.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
In this Architect designed luxury cottage guests will enjoy the original artwork by Alex Fong, quality linens, the up-to-date kitchen, and the wood stove The cottage is near the point of land known as Otter Point. Otter Point is the only place in the area where you can cast a fishing line from shore and catch a salmon.
