About Rob

We have been renting Oceanfront vacation properties in the Sooke, East Sooke, and French Beach area for 10 years. We love what we do.

Why Rob chose Vancouver Island

Orca Pass is a well-kept vacation home with much to offer a family that needs a little extra space. The outdoor attractions are endless with all the beaches and the scenic drive along the Pacific Marine Circle route.

What makes this house unique

Located near French Beach Provincial Park, a short walk from French Beach itself. The hot tub has a terrific sunset view.

This is a great house for a group gathering. The house is spacious, the view is amazing, the area is quiet and the beds are comfy. Everything I want for a west coast vacation.

Fantastic vacation house with a spectacular view!

  • 5 of 5

We chose Orca Pass as our accommodation for a mom's weekend away. We were thrilled with the house. Million dollar view from upstairs and down. The 6 of us were more than comfortable with the 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. From the gas fireplace in the living room to the heated floors in the bathroom we were very cozy during our stay. Hot tub was a nice treat on the chilly nights we had. Very private location in a lovely neighbourhood near a beautiful beach. I would absolutely recommend Orca Pass to friends and family looking for a vacation rental in Sooke.

Thanks so much for a great stay Rob!

Perfect place for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

The place is bigger than it seems in photos. Comfortable beds, pillows and sheets! Everything we needed. Well-stocked kitchen with plenty of dishes for us to prepare and enjoy a Thanksgiving dinner. We were 7 adults and 1 dog. There was lots of space for everyone to be together, and there is enough space for everyone to getaway. The location is stunning! A quick drive to China Beach for a nice hike, rewarded with a long soak in the hot tub. Well cared for space. We would love to return!

Peaceful Relaxing and Private Location

  • 5 of 5

I was surprised to see that not many take the time to write a review on this propety. We recently stayed at the property for a three day visit for a family get to-gether. The house is lovely inside and equipped with everything you need....modern and clean...the four bedrooms and three bedrooms left plenty of room for everyone. One of the lovely added touches was a master bedroom that had it's own private little fenced in patio....just loved that. The kitchen looks new and modern with its granite counter tops...but it truely is a one man kitchen...it is a bit of a challeng having two people in there preparing dinner. The hot tub was an added touch on the cooler days we experienced. The house is very private with no neighbours on one side. The view is exceptional. Flea Beach is close by and French Beach at the end of the road.....very accessible. Orca Pass was a very relaxing and peaceful holiday...would highly recommend... wish we could have stayed longer.

Sleek & Modern But Very Family Friendly

  • 5 of 5

A heavy rainstorm keep us inside for most of our four days at Orca Pass, but the house is so enjoyable it was still a nice vacation. The entire inside of the house has been completely remodeled in a beautiful Asian/Indigenous fusion with lots of interesting artwork .The bathrooms are very stylist with a huge tub and double head shower. I spent my days reading, curled up on the comfy leather couch enjoying the beautiful view and the warm gas fire. When the weather broke it was a short 5 minute walk to tiny Flea Beach which is covered in smooth black stones that make a nice sound when the waves roll in and out. . The house would be fantastic for a family with older children since the lower walkout level is self contained with bedrooms, bathroom and media room. There would be plenty of privacy for the adults upstairs while the children have their own space downstairs. It is on a cliff, as are most of the properties in this area, but the back of the property is fenced for safety. Beautiful French Beach is just a 20 min walk or 5 min drive. The property is very private with just a peek of the neighbors through the trees. We had no service problems with the owner. On top of all the nice features of this house (like the berry garden and two clothes dryers), my favorite was the heated bathroom floors. That was a nice surprise on a cold rainy day.
