What makes an ideal west coast vacation home is a place on the beach for a large or a small family, with indoor and outdoor fireplaces, and a hot tub with view. Driftwood Beach House has all of this. In addition, this property is a short drive from some great area attractions. The house is on the scenic Sooke to Port Renfrew Cowichan Circle route (the Pacific Marine Circle Route). Botanical Beach is at Port Renfrew and in the other direction there is Butchart Gardens. Victoria is a great place to visit with its quaint waterfront downtown, and Canada's oldest China Town.
There is a separate cabin that can be rented along with the house for an extra $50 / night (plus tax and cleaning). This contains the 4th bedroom and the 3rd bathroom. The cabin is never rented out on its own. Posted rates do not include the cabin.
Please note that VRBO is showing prices in US dollars. Keep this in mind when you see the price quoted for anything on VRBO.

I have been renting out vacation homes in the Sooke area for over 10 years. I love the Sooke area as a place to live or to vacation. I like to go kayaking and mountain biking.
Why Rob chose Juan de Fuca
This home is one of the few in the area with low bank beach access. There is a gentle sloping path to the beach and about 3 steps down onto the beach. It is a great place to launch a kayak. Kite surfing and sailboarding opportunities are nearby.
What makes this House unique
The beach is the defining feature of this home, but the hot tub which is practically right on the beach makes it just right.

Great location. Home was well equipped and lots of space for our family. Loved the beach and garden
Wonderful spot. We loved spending time on the beach, use of the hot tub, cooking hot dogs and smores at the fire pit and enjoying the amazing views from the decks. A very comfy home that easily accommodated 6 adults and 2 grandchildren. Cute cabin and the garden and paths were enchanting. The home had character and charm.
What a gorgeous spot for a girls weekend! The house is charming - plenty of room for the 6 of us - & situated on a fantastic stretch of beach. The terraced gardens are beautiful - even in the winter - & the hot tub was so relaxing. We even had the neighborhood peacock pay us a visit! We plan to return in the spring for more R & R & admire the gardens in bloom.
Thanks so much, Rob!
This is your place if you love west coast beaches. The house has a beautiful beach, and is located a short drive from French Beach Provincial Park. Jordan River, and China Beach, Sombrio, and Port Renfrew are must-see locations. Humpback Whales and Orcas are a common sight in this area and are occasionally visible from Driftwood Beach House -- more than occasionally in the summer months! Book a whale watching tour or go salmon fishing to add adventure and great memories to your west coast trip. The months from November to April are good surfing months in this area.

The cleaning fee is on sliding scale from $200 - $300 based on occupancy (# of people and the duration of the stay). Use $250 as a rough guide for the cleaning fee. The damage deposit ranges between $500 and $1000 depending on the number of people in the house. It is a temporary hold on your credit card that expires after you leave the property.
