The Best of Sooke!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved Skinny's Beach House! Shannon and Greg are fabulous hosts, the house is well stocked and clean. We especially enjoyed sitting in the hot tub & watching the local wildlife - otters, seals, deer, blue heron and more! We hope to return one day!

Very relaxing quiet location. Hard to leave and return to reality.

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable stay. Felt very private. Hot tub was great with all the sore muscles from so much walking and driving.. house is great. Very clean and supplied very well. Great hosts. Tides didn't cooperate so didn't get to catch any crab for dinner. That was the only disappointment.

Enchanting retreat

  • 4 of 5

Skinny' Beach House was full of character: the maturity of the building; the glorious view; the enchanting wildlife; the personal homely touches; the thoughtfulness of the condiments in the house and the kind arrival gifts and the crabs. Shannon and Greg were perfect hosts; attentive to our needs but respectful of our space for our time at the house.

Had an awesome long weekend fishing with some friends! The house was perfect, stocked with everything you could need, beds were great and the view was amazing! Shannon is super easy to deal with and very accomodating, even had a case of our favorite beer waiting for us in the fridge, cant get better than that!

Wonderful stay thank you!

  • 5 of 5

House is stylish, very clean, and comfortable, and quiet with stunning water view.

Location is fantastic.

Great and swift communications with Shannon all by email and text, so very easy, and she was very accommodating when I asked her to send my hat to me which I left in the house after we checked out. Definitely will return. Thank you

The Sooke Potholes ( Provincial Park ) are a poplar attraction for locals and tourists, the pools are fresh water and are great for swimming, cliff jumping, sunbathing, snorkelling, and family picnics. The Potholes are located 6 kms from our beach house.
