Why The Owner chose Sooke
We fell in love with the natural beauty of this rugged coast the first time we laid eyes on it. There is a soothing beauty to the rythym of the waves as they spray against the rocky shore, there is excitement in the orca and grey whale sightings, and we enjoy watching the majestic eagles soar above the sea. We enjoy the forest trail just steps away, and the various local beaches. All this with the backdrop of the magnificent Olympic mountain range! We love that it's easily accessible from the Victoria and Nanaimo ferries. There are great local restaurants within a short drive, and downtown Victoria is only an hour away.
What makes this house unique
We experience a trememdous connection to nature here and when we arrive, all the tension just melts away and goes out with the tides! It's so thrilling to be able to sit and spot whales, dolphins, seals, otters, eagles from our home! Also, we love taking a stroll through the meandering trail just steps away. The night sky is special here...no light pollution means we get to enjoy the brilliant canopy of stars.
