About the property

So close to the ocean, you might think you are on a boat!

With magnificent views of the Strait of Juan de Fuca, glimpses of sea life and the sound of pounding surf, this spacious 4000 square foot home is the perfect spot for a family holiday on the ocean. Sou-ke-bye is designed with an open floor plan on the main level, a delightfully separate master suite and private decks off all the bedrooms. The house has 4 bedrooms. Three of them have queen-sized beds, and the 4th has a single bed. There are 2 pull-out sofas. There are 3 bathrooms; one is a spacious master ensuite bath, the other two are 3 piece hall baths. One of these has a shower, and the other has a tub/shower unit.

Please note that VRBO has recently begun showing prices in US dollars. If you are a Canadian, you will have to ask for a quote in Canadian dollars or go into the rates section look at the pricing for the time of year you want to visit.

Why Rob chose Sooke

It has an ideal location. It is close to Sooke, but far enough from town to have a terrific view of the ocean.

What makes this house unique

The house is good value for the money. What I love about it is the view from the kitchen, from the deck, from the living room . . . anywhere you are in the house you have a wonderful sense that this is an oceanfront home.

Beautiful view and a great house!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our four night stay. The location of this house really is fantastic. Only a 10 minute drive from Sooke and little under an hour away from Victoria. The view you get with this house will never be boring. We saw whales, sea lions, seals and even jellyfish right from the living room!

The house itself could have been cleaner and more maintained. Also the lack of attention for people travelling with little children is a downside from this house.

The contact with Rob really was good. Nothing was too much and he always responded really quick. We would definitely return to this house when we ar coming back to Sooke.

Stunning view and great spot for our girls' weekend!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Sou-ke-bye. The house is very spacious and comfortable and the view is stunning at all times of the day. Blackberry picking in the front yard were also a treat! Our only complaint was the rather musty smell in the downstairs bedrooms, but otherwise everything was great.

We had a great experience here and with the property owners. The house is fully stocked and we had an amazing weekend filled with exploring sooke (such a stunning part of the world). Thank you so much and we will definitely be back!

Amazing views!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The house offered us all the comforts and more. Great time was had by all. The open kitchen living room design made our stay even more accommodating to family entertaining and comfort. It was difficult to decide which outings to take because just being at the home was a vacation in itself. Whale watching, beach walks, and visiting Victoria were all wonderful. Shopping in Sooke was very incredibly easy and we found everything we needed. Wish we could have spend a month.
