We are keen outdoor types,enjoying hiking & the variety of trails in the area, with our 2 dogs Jaffa & Mocha. Cycling, kayaking ,fishing are all right here on our door step,you don't have to drive far to get away from it all. We both enjoy cooking,travelling & have a fair size garden to grow our own produce.
Sallie & Jeff Pocock purchased this House in 2004
What makes this House unique
We enjoy sitting & watching all the activity in the Juan de Fuca it's a busy section of water way, Orca whales,Grey Whales,Humpback, Stellar seals, Otters travel in the strait. It's also a busy shipping way,Cruise ships ( which I love to see light up at night), naval, cargo ships travel in & out of the strait. We love that the house faces south for getting the most out of those sunny days & the garden areas to choice from to sit relax or play games. It's in a perfect location for us for the life style we live. We like the light bright open plan lay out of Williwaw. We try to make our guest feel at home & hope you enjoy the house & area as much as we do.

Wonderful place to stay!
Lovely front yard, great house (accommodation), very clean and well stocked!
The place to come home to.
Spacious, well equipped, great view of the ever changing Juan de Fuca Strait, loved the warmth and comfort of the wood stove. It was nice to soak in the hot tub after a day on the trails. The house is designed with windows that look on beauty in every direction. Sallie was available when needed but never intrusive. She had great suggestions about things to do in the area, like visiting the Shirley Delicious cafe, yum, or having a facial or pedicure next door at West Coast Esthetics, magical.
There are plenty of local activities in the area. 8oo meters from Williwaw is a small ocean front park ( Otter Point Park),which has a typical West coast feel. There is a bench , picnic table to sit & enjoy the scenery. There are several beaches near Williwaw that are only a short 5-20 minute drive away, Gordon's Beach, Ella Beach, Muir Creek, French beach to name a few.
The Galloping Goose Trail is an 55km(34 mile) former railway line. Great trail to cycle, walk, run, jog, ride a horse,only thing not allowed on the Goose is a motorized vehicle.
There are also amazing hiking trails in the area, where you can great views over the Sooke Harbour, Juan de Fuca Strait, even into Victoria. Being a keen hiker my self this is a great area for hiking.
There are also great trails for the more adventurist mountain bikers.
If you like water sport activities, there is kayaking, fishing,crabbing & shrimping. Which you can enjoy either in the Sooke basin ( which is a bit more sheltered ) or out on the Juan de Fuca Strait.
If you want to travel a bit further Botanical beach in Port Renfrew is worth a visit. It is about an hours drive from Williwaw. Check on tides before you go, low tide is best to enjoy the sand stone rich tide pools.
Hatley Castle National Historic site is located in Colwood at Royal Roads University grounds. The gardens are worth a visit.
Also located in Colwood is Fort Rodd Hill & Fisgard Light house, this is a beautiful historic site for all ages.
Victoria is a beautiful city to visit,the city does an amazing display of their garden's , hanging baskets & planters. There are plenty of places of interest to enjoy. Empress Hotel ( their Bengal Lounge has an amazing Indian Buffet), there are several great restaurants in town. We are keen cooks ,so have tried most restaurants in town,if you want any idea's on where to eat.
The Beacon Hill Park & Dallas road scenic ocean front walkway are beautiful to stroll through for all ages.
There are so many places to spend & enjoy your holiday time, please don't hesitate to ask Jeff or my self for idea's &/or information on the area.
