About Chad Verch
We love West Coast life and all that it has to offer in beauty and recreation. We enjoy travelling and mostly rent other homes through the VRBO network.
Chad Verch purchased this House in 2003
Why Chad Verch chose East Sooke
This property has been in the family since 1950 with the newer house being constructed in 2003 from lumber harvested and milled on the property. The older cottage (not a rental) was built in the early 1920's with an addition added in the late 1940's. This property has over 900 feet of waterfront with a deep water dock, 2 beaches and a rocky point. You can catch legal sized rock and dungeness crab right of the dock. (remember you need a salt water licence that can be purchased online) and the area is abundant in sea and wild life. It truly is a piece of paradise!
What makes this House unique
Southern Vancouver Island has a mild climate with pleasant warm, dry summers and mild, wet conditions in spring, fall and winter. It rarely snows in the lower areas of this region and if it does snow it usually doesn't stay around long. At Heron Point House you will see many varieties of wildlife, both in the water and on land. It is common to see deer, peacocks, otters, raccoons, seals, hummingbirds and bald eagles daily. If you are lucky you may even see one of the local great horned or barred owls. Bears and cougars frequent the area and you may catch a glimpse of one while enjoying one of the many hiking trails nearby.

Great stay at Heron Point House
The property and house were lovely and we really appreciated the extra touches that made our stay great. There were books for our kids, games for us, and even a couple crab traps on the dock for us to experiment with!
Great house. Great location
This was our 2nd time here. Relaxing beauty in a great house. Superb vacation.
Great house with complete amenities. Terrific views of the water and wildlife/sea life. Bit of a drive to Sooke stores. Would return in a heartbeat.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. City action in Victoria and then a peaceful nature retreat in Sooke. The right combination for a perfect family trip.
