Sooke Cabin Rental Photos and Description
1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 3
You'll be nestled in your own private cozy fireside cabin retreat surrounded by views of forest, sky, and sea located in Otter Point, BC just 10 km west of Sooke Village (50 km west of Victoria).
Little Nest Cabin is an open-format ocean-view cabin built in a timber-frame style with south-facing almost floor-to-ceiling windows. Additional skylights in the living room and bathroom areas bring in light from sunrise to sunset; perfectly beautiful whether surrounded by clear skies or moody coastal mist and fog.
The property includes a second listing for Salal House that may be booked for up to 5 additional guests separately or in combination with this cabin.
We offer a ultra-comfortable king-size bed as well as an ottoman in the living room area that can fold out into a single bed. Curtains provide between the sleeping and living areas. On request we'd be happy to make the king bed up for two singles with separate duvets.
Little Nest Cabin is friendly to those with dust mite and animal allergies. We have wall-to-wall fir wood floors and bathroom tile (the only carpet is a wool rug in the entry way). We don't host pets. We also use only non-toxic cleaning products.
We look forward to hosting you!
The kitchenette is outfitted with everything you'd need to prepare a fabulous meal away from home. Sooke also offers several recommended and well-reviewed restaurants. For a reasonable charge we'd be happy to provide continental breakfast fixings or items like locally made gourmet soup, deli platters, smoked salmon, or even a fresh-made pizza ready to bake.
Amenities include: gas fire stove, flat screen TV with DVD/Blu Ray player for movies and music, DVD movie collection, telephone for local calls to Sooke and Victoria-area, AM/FM radio, and washer/dryer.
In the forest-view bathroom we have a heated tiled floor, deep bathtub with rain-feature shower head and separate handheld shower, freshly washed face, body, and bath towels. Bath salts, shampoo, conditioner, face and body moisturizing creams, and hairdryer are provided.
Bed are made with freshly washed sheets, duvet & covers, and comfortable pillows. Two bedside tables have storage for small clothes items. A custom-built fir wood wall rack offers a shelf and hooks and hangers for larger items.
In the kitchenette we have a counter-height refrigerator, dishwasher, two-burner ceramic cook top, counter top oven, air popcorn popper, vent hood (with fan, spotlights & clock), pots, pans, cooking implements, utensils, dishware, and glassware etc.
We provide a thermal French press carafe, stainless steel Italian-style stove top espresso maker, coffee grinder, kettle, tea pot. Please bring your own coffee beans. Also provided are a selection of Tassimo coffee pods, local tea company Silk Road's herbal, green, and black teas, and both milk and dark hot chocolate mixes. For your convenience we also supply a small amount of salt, pepper, basic spice mixes, popcorn kernels, rice, and cooking/salad oils.
Juergen and Sarah reside off-property in nearby Victoria. Guests check in and check out by telephone. Cabin is accessed with key code provided shortly before arrival. Hosts are available to answer questions by telephone.
On the coast of the Salish Sea (Strait of Juan de Fuca) with a view of Orveas Bay, Sheringham Point Lighthouse, and Washington State's Olympic Peninsula you'll find yourself just a short drive from some of Vancouver Island's best beaches, parks, and hiking trails.
Watch sail and fishing boats and windsurfers and kite gliders and the occasional whale spout from almost anywhere in the cabin!
The property is 1.5 acres sloping from a neighboring privately-owned forest to the road to Gordon's Beach. You'll experience sounds and sights of a friendly beach-side rural residential neighborhood.
There are plenty of grocery, restaurant, and cafe options within a 10-minute drive. Also library, swim pool, and skate arena as well as fishing and wildlife outfitters, bike and kayak rentals, and local hiking groups. We also recommend the local open stage music afternoon held at a local cafe... always a packed house!
We recommend guests arrive by car. There is taxi service in the area but this mode of transport would limit your ability to explore. The nearest bus stop is more than 2 km away.
Two-night minimum Jan 15 to March 10. Three-nights the rest of the year except summer high season (June 15 to Sept 15) and all holidays and special events when we require four nights.
Otter Point Retreat has very limited cell service. While USA AT&T customers report a good connection, and BC cell customers will receive a good signal in Sooke and surrounding area, there is no BC cell service from Otter Point Retreat or in the immediate area.
Guests who use our compost and recycling facilities to reduce garbage sent to the local landfill will receive a partial refund of the cleaning fee.
