A real Canadian experience. Situated across from parkland offering a secluded sheltered beach on the south west coast of Vancouver Island, this West coast cedar cottage overlooks a Pacific Rim garden with views of the ocean.Its the ideal place for beach lovers, seaside adventurers, wildlife observers and those who just want to get away to a unique setting which offers ultimate relaxation. Jacuzzi on deck to to relax in while listening to waves of the Pacific Ocean. Set back a little from the water in the area is an advantage because the breeze from the water can be cool whereas on our sheltered deck you can be in bathing suits. Mile long French Beach, 5 min.walk away and from there on beach after beautiful beach all up the coast. Fishboat, China, Sombrio, Sandcut beach, the list goes on and on. All within 15-30mn The walks down to them are spectacular, you are surrounded by old growth cedars and spruce. Victoria is only an hour away so even for the half day it's not far. And it really is a haven of peace to get back to. Sooke village with all the amenities you need, two supermakets, 2 drugstores, banks, gas stations, restaurants, renowned Sooke Harbour House & Markus' Wharfside are amonst them, as well as the Vienna Bakery for tea/coffee, and lunch. And plenty of other shops to visit as well as a beautiful indoor pool and museum.

we had a lovely stay at Seastar, it truly is a beautiful house in a stunning location.............we found it hard to leave, I don't think I would if I was the owner.
Far enough away from Victoria to get that real west coast experience but close enough to Sooke fro amenities and to Victoria for a day trip. But don't bother head in the other direction and explore the Juan de Fuca trail and the amazing beaches along the coast.
We rented the house for our small wedding and it was just perfect.
The beautiful house is surrounded by nature and has an amazing ocean view.
Just a view steps away there is Flea Beach which is a very cute little bay. French Beach is just a view minutes away which is perfect for taking long walks or just hanging out at the beach all day.
I love the furniture in the house. It is very beautiful and suits it perfectly.
You can tell that the owner pays attention to details and wants you to make you feel you are at home. The flair of the house is welcoming and warm and we are very happy that we found this place for our little fairytail beach wedding.
Thanks again to make our special day perfect
Relaxing on Seastar's warm deck on an exquisite day,
The sound of the dancing aulders as they gracefully sway
In a gentle breeze carrying the sweet smell of the sea,
Creating in us a divine feeling of harmony.
When we booked the seastar we were unsure of what we were getting. The pictures looked great but they always do on these rental sites. When we got there we found the pictures really didn't do it justice. It is a very private large lot with a huge sundeck and hot tub built in, also very private. The Cottage is very comfortable and fit our family of 5 nicely, there is also a small suite on the lower level that sleeps 2 more but is only accessible by going outside and entering through a lower door (not a big deal). There is a great little beach about a 2 minute walk away, and a huge beach (French Beach) about a 5 min drive away. All the basic necessities are provided including towels, bedding, etc. We found it very relaxing having no TV and no cell phones for distraction to our holiday, and we were able to spend every day exploring some of the many beachs in the area. We look forward to booking our next holiday in summer 2010
The house is located on the west coast of Vancouver Island just outside the town of Sooke. Victoria is about an hour drive. It is located on the west coast and is surrounded by several beautiful beaches and magnificent forests. There is Internet at the house however no cell service.
