About Ines Swansburg

My name is Ines, I am of Dutch descend but was born in Spain hence the spanish name. I moved with my family to Victoria BC, straight from the Costa Brava in Spain when I was 14 years old. Now, that is a long time ago! I am a registerd nurse and love my job in the community. I have two sons that are teenagers and a small mix breed non-shedding 12 lbs dog. I also love my place out in Sooke that I share with many people all over the world.It is the perfect place to get away from our busy lives.

Ines Swansburg purchased this house in 1992

Why Ines Swansburg chose Sooke

This home was my first home that I owned and never could bring myself to sell it. Renting out month to month could not give me the options to enjoy it so the vacation rental option was perfect for us!

What makes this house unique

Peace and tranquility. Love getting close to the sun, fresh air and ocean breeze.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Sad to leave, had a awesome vacation went to Victoria for the day, visited Botanical Beach, drove to Comox and all with great weather. Well equipped cottage, the best view ever and the hot tub made our stay very enjoyable. We'll be back to visit again.

ps; our doggie Maggie had a fun vacation too!

We loved our relaxing stay at 'Surf Side House' Thank you Ines for sharing your beautiful home. The first thing that hits you when you walk onto the property is the stunning unobstructed view of the Pacific Ocean. The word 'Wow' was the first word out of our mouths. This view is enjoyed from that first moment and further showcased through the big windows in the house. We also loved the hot tub perched above the ocean so much! There are so many lovely things to say about this house. The open concept design, a well stocked kitchen with plenty of housewares, a super comfy long couch and reclining chairs, a cozy wood stove, a super comfy king sized bed. The special touches of an abundance of beach towels for the hot tub and a towel at the front door to dry off our little doggies. The tourist brochures, spices in the cupboard, coffee, tea and sugar in the canisters. The outdoor area is charming with views everywhere and offers privacy as well. The patio was a lovely place to watch the wildlife swim by. My husband loved the huge bbq! This beautiful property is close to so many beautiful beaches and parks. Sooke Pot Holes, French Beach and not too far from Jordan River where you can watch the surfers (rain or shine! ) We took a little day trip to Botanical Beach which I highly recommend. Incredible huge waves crashing in. We were so distracted by their beauty that we didn't see the big black bear enjoying the view as well. I don't think we've ever run so fast! There are many fantastic memories that have been made from our stay at your home Ines and I cannot wait for the next time! Thank you!!

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5
My sisters and cousin stayed four nights and it couldn't have been more fun, granted , we had fabulous weather, but the cottage was fabulous, clean and cosy, very comfortable, the view is unbelievable! Loved soaking in the hot tub in the early morning, watching the seals and otters go by. We went hiking every day, lots of trails to chose from near by. Would love to come back ( even in the colder weather , to be able to use the wood stove.
Only thing I would suggest is to bring along some DVD's of your own choosing to watch.

This place MADE our vacation!

  • 5 of 5
The photos on this ad don't and couldn't possibly do this property justice. My family including my 2 young daughters, my husband and myself as well as my father were more than comfortable here. The ocean view is breath-taking. We saw an otter, a porpoise and orcas from the balcony! The hot tub, overlooking the ocean was amazing and the wood stove made for some cozy nights and mornings when it was cool outside. The kitchen is very well stocked - as is the whole house. We had an excellent vacation to the area, regardless of accommodations, however this property put it over the top. I don't know if I'll ever be able to stay in a hotel while on vacation again! We were actually wishing we had one more day of our vacation just to hang around the cottage and enjoy all it had to offer!

Ines was fantastic to book through and very friendly and helpful for someone who has never booked a vacation like this before. I highly recommend it.

All we can say is WOW!

  • 5 of 5
We are home again after a wonderful week at your Surfside Cottage. All we could and can say is WOW. We absolutely loved being there by the ocean. Everything was perfect- from the house, to the bed, and the hot tub, to the smells and sounds of the ocean, and seeing all the fishing boats, otters and a couple of dolphins. And of course, the hot tub; so close and the vista! Thanks for the bottle of wine which we drank looking over the ocean. Our dog was loving it, too, along with our daughter who spent 2 nights with us on the weekend. Used the fireplace a couple of times when it was a bit misty and cool. Great!
We will keep this week's adventure close and also your address so we can rent again. Loved it!!!
Again, thank you.

Amazing cozy beachfront getaway!

  • 5 of 5
We went to this cabin for a girls weekend away, for some quiet, tranquil downtime from life. Surfside did not disappoint, it was even nicer than we hoped it would be, pictures don't do it justice. Huge picture windows overlooking the ocean, super private. And only 40 minutes from Victoria! The cozy bedrooms and living room, wood stove, movies to watch, stocked kitchen, patio with a windbreaker screen... and then the hot tub overlooking the ocean! Everything was super clean and maintained, great bedding too. This would be even more amazing in the summer to enjoy the private beach and dock. We picked up Mexican food to-go at "The Lazy Gecko" in the afternoon to have dinner later and it was excellent! We peeked at the 'teen bedroom' that has it's own outside entrance and were so impressed with this additional option with 2 more beds and a small bathroom! The owner was great and easy to deal with, we couldn't have asked for more for this weekend. Thank you Ines, we will be back!

Relaxing family vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We were very happy with our choice to stay at Surfside Cottage for our vacation. The cottage is very comfortable and well-equipped and the location is beautiful. We loved the hot tub and cozy wood burning stove as well as the great selection of movies and games. Perfect for the cool spring weather! We also really appreciated being able to bring our small dog at no extra charge. Thank you and we hope to be back again one day.
