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 Sooke
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.

Very cool spot! Rob was quick to respond and very helpful. The place was clean. Check in/out was simple. The kitchen is totally functional and equipped to cook REAL meals in and even though it's a little outside of Victoria, access to everything was easy. Plus, with the drive being so beautiful, we hardly noticed. And though we were traveling with 4 adults, I think this space would be fantastic for a family or maybe two? Our favorite parts were the hot tub, the flowers, the wild bunnies, being visited by a family of Quail with babies every morning, and a beautiful 3pt. buck Deer in velvet!
Great place to stay
Very quiet, very clean. Overall great place to rent, only downfall there was no outdoor fire place.
I am happy that you enjoyed your stay at the house!
Regarding outdoor fires:
East Sooke rarely receives any rain from late May to September. As a result the area gets extremely dry and the wild fire hazard becomes enormous.
During those months we can't allow outdoor fires and we were informally requested by the fire department not to provide outdoor fire facilities.
However - the fire place inside the house can be used year round.
A note to our future guests: While smoking is permitted outside the house please be very careful especially during the months of May to September!
A carelessly discarded cigarette can have catastrophic consequences in no time...
Relaxing and private
House was clean and cozy upon arrival. Was stocked with all the little things you may need, they even had a fire ready to be lit. Great open floor plan made for a comfortable stay with 2 kids and 2 dogs.
We wanted a nice quiet vacation, and this was perfect. Great hiking at East Sooke Regional Park, check out the copper mine site. Nice hot tub to relax in at the end of the day, and stargaze. Nice, and clean house with plenty of room. We saw rabbits, deer, and eagles in the yard during our stay. Rob was helpful and quick to reply.
Comfortable and well presented
We had a lovely time in Sooke. We loved the property ideal for a large party very comfortable beds and sofas. The hot tub was a bonus Sooke is beautiful Rob returned our deposit very quickly and was easily connectable. Overall we all had a lovely holiday.
Our family stayed here on our vacation, we were very impressed on how clean and well kept this place was !!! It is also very private and quite. I would highly recommend this place to anyone staying in the Sooke area , you will not be disappointed!!!
