This charming East Sooke house is the ideal home base for a larger group traveling to the west coast of Vancouver Island. The house sits on one acre of land and has a large sunny deck with a hot tub.

Some of the best salmon and halibut fishing on the west coast of north america is found just off the beaches here. A country store stocked with all necessities is just a 5 minute drive down the road. The house is located 15 minutes from the town of Sooke, 20 minutes from greater Victoria and 40 minutes from downtown Victoria, the capital city of the province of B.C. The house sleeps 6 comfortably in four bedrooms.

About Rob Seemann

Greetings from beautiful Sooke, British Columbia!

My name is Rob.

I have built this house and owned it for almost 20 years now. I grew up in Munich, Germany and have lived in Canada since the age of 19. I travel a lot and usually stay in vacation rental properties myself. I am happy to give my guests a wonderful opportunity to call this fantastic area home for a few days or weeks and explore the many natural attractions Sooke and Vancouver island offer!

Rob Seemann purchased this chateau / country house in 1996

Why Rob Seemann chose Vancouver Island

Staying at Llanilar House gives you the best of both worlds when you visit the area!

A peaceful country setting where no light or sound pollution spoils your evenings as you stargaze from the deck at night. Yet only a short trip by car opens up incredible nature adventures and even shopping opportunities.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay Llanilar House; it had everything we needed and was really cozy.

We would certainly stay again!

Happy New Year!

late june vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house for our late June vacation on Vancouver Island. The location is somewhat remote, which is what we were looking for. We saw rabbits, deer, bats and an owl from the yard during our stay. The house was very comfortable and provided enough privacy to accommodate our group of 5. We enjoyed the hot tub two of the nights during our stay, and it was a great place to stargaze.

Great Property for the Family

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at this property. It was very clean, quiet and located in a beautiful part of the island. Checking in and out was simple as everything was well organized by Rob. We found the house quite spacious for our family of four. The hot tub, barbeque and wood stove were nice features. We can't wait to stay again soon!

Charming, spacious country home

  • 5 of 5

We spent our Easter week at this wonderful home, it was clean, spacious and had everything we needed. The surroundings were peaceful and oh so quiet. Amazing hiking was close by and we enjoyed both East Sooke Regional Park and the Juan de Luca trail. A great get away property, well located close to Victoria and the beautiful rugged west coast. Thank you for letting us stay at your wonderful home.

Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here in late March 2017 and found our stay very relaxing and a pleasant experience. Lots of room for two couples and fairly well equipped for cooking, which we like to do on vacation. After a day of hiking - of which there is an abundance in the area - we particularly enjoyed the hot tub and the fireplace. The locations if great for accessing the East Sooke regional park and by going a bit further, the Juan de Fuca marine trail. It is also within an easy drive to Victoria, BC ferries and the Victoria airport. Finally, the owner is very responsive and willing to help. We got our deposit back promptly. Overall, we would definitely stay here again.
