LUXURY NEW OCEANFRONT RETREAT IN VERY PRIVATE GATED SETTING

Sooke House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

Lighthouse Point Retreat is an exquisite new luxury Oceanfront home with breathtaking views of the Olympic mountain range. You will LOVE this sunny south facing property, where sightings of seals, otters, pods of orcas, and eagles in flight are normal occurrences!

This is your perfect retreat for one or two couples. Your bright and spotless bedroom with a queen bed and big ocean and nature view has its own ensuite bathroom while additional guests can get a restful sleep on the comfortable new living room sofa bed with easy access to the second bathroom.

Stairs will take you to your own private beach, where you can easily launch a kayak or canoe. Fish for salmon right from shore, or set your own crab trap. Bar-B-Q your own catch from the private patio and enjoy your own casual seaside dining experience.

This new luxury cottage is ideal for those seeking privacy and solitude in a magnificent oceanfront setting.

The large picture windows and doors throughout your vacation home bring nature to your 'inside' living experience. Enjoy your breakfast in the clean ocean air where you'll be at one with nature. You'll absolutely enjoy basking in the sun on this southerly exposed property where natural light infuses the home and property throughout the day. Take a nature walk on the meandering 3 km forested trail starting only steps from home.

Exploring: You will find many beaches to explore, the nearest of which, French Beach, is only a 3 minute drive away or you may take a leisurely walk there instead. You can experience the splendor of Sandcut, China, Sombrio, or Gordon's Beaches all within a few minutes drive away - and this is just to name a few! A little further on is Botanical Beach where you will explore tide pools and experience the small community of Port Renfrew.

Dining: You'll find Sooke, 20 minutes drive away, has all that you will need: 2 major grocery stores, a wonderful bakery with Artisan breads and delicious pastries, fine dining restaurants along with a variety of delicious more casual dining options, natural food store, farms selling fresh eggs enroute, local honey, local fresh fish, and much more.

Activities: There's no end to what you can do should you decide to pry yourself away from your retreat! Hiking, kayaking, fishing, boating, beachcombing, touring, surfing, windsurfing, kiteboarding, cycling, off-roading, birding, or take in the sights of Victoria an hour away.

About The Owner

We really enjoy outdoor activities like hiking, cycling, kayaking, beachcombing, and relaxing in the oceanside air with great books. We find this property provides everything we need for a rejuvenating break from our normal pace of life. Our love of nature is satisfied to it's fullest everytime we come here!

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

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.

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5
We had the best week at this amazing little cottage. The views are the most beautiful I've ever seen. Most of the days and evening were spent on the back porch enjoying the wildlife and views. We saw whales, otters, bald eagle, bunnies, deer and a seal. We hiked to all the beaches around. Highly recommend driving out to Port Renfrew and having lunch at the resort there. Just an absolute amazing experience I'll never forget. Oh, the weather was crazy awesome!!!

PARADISE!

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I stayed at this property over the Thanksgiving weekend and it was heaven! We live an hour away and just wanted a break from busy schedules and we couldn't have asked for a better getaway! We lucked out and had amazing weather (warm full sunshine) which made for clear mountain views across to Washington State. We sat and watched 3 humpback whales all day Sunday, 8 river otters playing on the beach below, eagles, bunnies and seals. We came prepared with groceries and didn't leave the house (except to hike and walk to French Beach) the entire weekend. The house comes with everything you will need for a perfect getaway...if I could buy this house...I would!!! Views are amazing, full privacy, home is beautiful and you couldn't ask for a more perfect location.

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week at the Cottage. Scenery and setting are truly breathtaking. Cottage was beautiful, clean, comfortable, well furnished, all details considered, with plenty of towels and linens. We were lucky to have incredible weather--there is a mist in the morning which adds to the mystery of the raw nature that surrounds, but when the sun burns it off, you see mountains across the water. All in all, it was an excellent stay--with so much to enjoy, just relaxing inside watching the fishing boats in the morning, or walking the beaches and exploring the rugged nature of the area. It's less than an hour drive to Victoria, and 20 minutes to Sooke, which is a wonderful adventure. We would come again. Eleana was wonderful to work with. She was gracious and helpful.

Sheringham Point

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay in British Columbia! It was our first trip there for vacations and we were amazed by the landscape and wildlife. The cabin was much more than a cabin. It was up to date with latest appliances (note no microwave...worked for us) and the latest furnishings. It was very clean. Windows were spotless which allowed for us to enjoy the beautiful view of the Strait of Juan de Fuca. The Olympic Mountains changed in beauty every day and multiple times throughout the day. We saw two pods of orcas, seals, otters, starfish, bald eagles, deer and even caught a fish. Didn't see any bears :( We went hiking most every day and greatly enjoyed the hike from China beach to Mystic beach. Our favorite places to eat included Mom's in Sooke, Point no Point, the Resort in Port Renfrew and Stone Pipe Grill. I nice place to pick up smoked salmon and card is at Jock's Dock in Sooke. We look forward to another trip there in the future.

A GORGEOUS BRIGHT COTTAGE EXACTLY AS DESCRIBED AND PICTURED!

  • 5 of 5
We just spent an incredibly relaxing and enjoyable week at this awesome cottage and couldn’t be more pleased with it. Eleana was a pleasure to work with. She was prompt and thorough with her e-mail replies and made the planning of the stay informative and easy. Dawn, who greeted us with the key, was friendly and helpful. The cottage looks exactly as shown in all of the photos and the description of the property and contents are precise and accurate. The cottage was clean, there are lots of windows so it is lovely and bright and it has an open floor plan. The furniture is new and comfy and the bed is comfortable. The owners have thought of everything a person requires in the way of making your own meals as well as special touches such as binoculars to look out at the unbelievable view of the ocean and mountains, a heated bathroom floor and most appreciated free long-distance phone calls. The thoughtfulness and organization that has been put into designing and equipping the cottage is second-to-none and very much appreciated to make a person feel at home. We thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the patio, the relaxing peace and quiet and the soothing sound of the ocean waves slapping against the shore. The bbq is a nice size and worked very well. With all this comfort and awesome view, we didn't move from the rental very much at all, except to stock up on the necessities of life, like food and wine. We enjoyed shopping at the Village Market which has a wide variety of deli foods, as well as an incredible selection of groceries at a reasonable price. No need to stop at Safeway in Victoria which we'll know for next time. Shirley Delicious Cafe not far from the house had excellent coffee drinks and desserts. Vienna Bakery and Mom's Cafe in Sooke had delicious baked goods and meals. We will not hesitate to recommend this cottage to friends and family and hope to return to it ourselves. Thank you, Eleana, for a very pleasant VRBO experience and for the wonderful chance to enjoy your unforgettable ocean-front retreat.
