  • WONDERFUL RETREAT AND AWESOME FOR DOGS!

    "This is a stunning property smartly designed to maximize the gorgeous views of Cooper's Cove. The rooms are spacious, the furnishings fresh and high-end, and the kitchen is gourmet-level. The master suite is huge with a fabulous multi-jet steam shower and Jacuzzi tub. During the nice sunny week of our stay, often times it very tempting to just simply hang out and enjoy sunshine and views. It was a LOT of house for just me and my two dogs, but fit the bill for my annual Fall "dog week" BC vacation. The location was central to dog-friendly off-leash hiking locations such as Thetis Lake, East Sooke Regional Park, Aylard Farm, French & China Beaches, and Whiffen Spit. A fully fenced yard and waterfront location were musts, so this checked those boxes well. It's just a few steps down to a spacious cove where the dogs could swim (at high tide only, very mucky at low tide). The very large rear lawn was well-suited to ball-lobbing. The owner has very thoughtfully provided bed sheets as throws for "furniture dogs", nice to know in advance so I didn't need to carry my own throws as I typically do. Dawn, the property manager, resides in the smaller suite when not rented. She was virtually invisible, but It was nice being able to text her questions. I even went to dinner with her a few times at the Stickleback Eatery 2 doors east. Wonderful burgers/fish/noodles with a patio on the cove - highly recommend!!! In response to the prior reviewer's complaint about cleaning fees, let me add this: When contacting me about returning my security deposit, Steve, the owner, informed me that I had a partial cleaning fee refund coming. I was speechless! In 11 past VRBO rentals from BC to Hawaii, I was never offered a refund, despite the fact that all these rentals were for just 1-2 people and thus only using one bedroom & bath. I always assumed the cleaning fee was the fee, period. I have always treated rentals as my own home, tidied up the kitchen as we went, swept up or vacuumed excess dog as needed, and per request at nearly every one of them, loaded the dishwasher, stripped the beds, and got a washer load going as we departed. It was really nice to be recognized for the first time as requiring less-than-the-norm cleaning time. Will visit again without hesitation."

  • Peaceful, with all the comforts of home..

    "This loft is very well-equipped and has everything you need for a great stay. The king bed is very comfortable. The location is very private and quiet. The owners are great...very friendly, and they ensured that we had everything we needed during our stay. The awesome deck provided a wonderful spot for afternoon cocktails and to review the activities of the day. The washer and dryer came in handy after a successful day of fishing. All in all, a perfect five-star getaway."

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay this fall at Saltys on the Sea!

    "Bob and Jennifer were very accommodating in providing a "chemical and scent free" suite. Thank you so much! Our suite was well appointed and very well stocked including breakfast. We loved how the added mirrors accentuated the light from outdoors. The grounds are beautifully cared for by these seasoned gardeners and the view is breathtaking. Congratulaions on your first season of being open!"
