Property description

Come experience a private waterfront retreat on natural, spectacular, south Vancouver Island. Surrounded with a panoramic ocean view and nature in every direction, you will be only steps away from the trail-heads and beaches of scenic East Sooke Park, and a short drive to the wild Pacific beaches and West Coast Trail.

Wake up and cast off from the southern-most dock in Canada just minutes from some of the largest Chinook on the West Coast! All this and still only a comfortable drive to Canada's finest west coast city, Victoria.

Vistas of the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the Olympic Mountains. Eagles, swans, otters, seals, whales and large numbers of migrating waterfowl have been seen from the private hot tub and wrap around deck. Our private dock provides the option to fish, crab, kayak, scuba dive or just sit and reflect on the wildlife going by.

The house and landscaped grounds are ideal for a family vacation. The main house has three bedrooms, and the adjoining cabin has bunks with room for up to six more friends or family.

The full kitchen, fireplace, along with the comfortably and tastefully accommodated living room provide a 180-degree view of the Sooke basin. Victoria with its museums, gardens, sight-seeing and restaurants is a short drive away. Closer in enjoy the art, bakeries and restaurants of Sooke including the world famous Sooke Harbor House.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: Tim and Sue have a long, deep connection with the outdoors in the Pacific Northwest. Tim with a degree in Ocean Sciences from UBC in Vancouver, they have traveled the world's oceans only to return back to the most beautiful place on the planet: Vancouver Island.

Why the Owner Chose Sooke, BC, Canada:
We bought this property after a 25th wedding anniversary at the Sooke Harbor House. The beauty of the Straits of Juan de Fuca and the Olympic Peninsula during the day, the sound of the waves on Sooke Spit and the call of the Mew Gull at night were magical. We came for a weekend and have remained.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The view out the window from the house is stunning. You can see the mountains of the Olympic Peninsula to the south, and a full view of Sooke Harbor to the west. In the summer the sunset through these windows is always special. In the winter, you watch the migrating birds while a fire warms the room behind you.
