About Betty Tully

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.

Betty Tully purchased this cottage in 1997

Why Betty Tully chose Sooke

1265 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.

What makes this cottage unique

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.

This is a special place!

  • 4 of 5

Amazing ocean views, especially from the private beaches around the property. This was really a special vacation and a magical location. We saw bald eagles in the trees above the beach, and otters swam in the water (we even observed them playing on the beach one evening!) The cottage had everything we needed, however it was a bit chilly with the tile floors throughout the downstairs—bring your slippers and a warm sweater, even in summer! This property is shared with another cottage, but it still felt quite private. There was more traffic noise than I had anticipated from the road behind the cottage (including loud truck traffic) which was disappointing, but not at all noticeable from the beach. Overall this was a lovely seaside getaway.

Great Vacation Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The Cottage at Seward was a great get away spot! It has a beautiful view of the Strait of Juan de Fuca with trails right to the water's edge. On the property, we saw rabbits, otters, deer, quail, eagles and Bella the resident cat. In the strait we saw whales, seals and sea lions. The cottage was clean and comfortable and Betty was a wonderful host!

Overall, a great place...!

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

This guest cottage is truly outstanding. The location overlooking the Strait of Juan de Fuca is dramatic, the beaches a delight, and the cottage beautifully designed and completely equipped for a brief or extended stay. Betty is a wonderful hostess - available whenever we needed her assistance but with complete respect for our privacy.

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!
