About June and Ron Williams
We purchased our property in 1991 after spending months searching for the ideal oceanfront location that offered a forest of tress, absolute privacy and quiet. We wanted to be on the west coast oceanfront with views over the Juan de Fuca Strait and Olympic mountains. It also had to be south facing to escape the cold westerly winds. We found our piece of paradise protected by the Sheringham Lighthouse point of land. The 6 plus acres with cedars fir and old growth alder provided the material to mill and build . thus began the process of design and constructing our home by the sea.

A truly beautiful place and a very relaxing time. It was everything they said it was and more! You can quickly tell Ron and June love their place. They are very gracious hosts. Have recommended it to others who have asked about our stay.
Beautiful, peaceful , a great place for a relaxing time away. Will definitely return.
The cottage was beautiful and it was so peaceful.
It was our first time in the area and we loved the atmosphere of the cottage. It was exactly what we were looking for, with beautiful views of the ocean.
Thank you for your lovely review...we are always happy to hear from our guests in such a positive manner...we hope you will visit with us again !Happy New Year!!
Really enjoyed the weekend stay. The cabin offered all that we needed. Ron & June really took care and were thoughtful to ensure the kitchen had all the basics in case we forgot something. This is our second time here. Will come back again.
Best get away ever!
Incredible private get away. Perfectly positioned to take advantage of the amazing view! The spacious cottage was neat and clean. The private hot tub was a nice touch. Perfect place to unwind and relax. The owners were very helpful.
Quiet piece of heaven
My wife and I stayed for a weekend and the cottage was beautiful, it was very clean and comfortable. The decor showed very nice details and added to the ambiance. It was far enough away from the road that the only thing we heard was the crickets and wind in the trees, but close enough to other beaches and to town if you had to pick up some food or wine. The view of the ocean from the hammock or private hot tub is sublime. My wife and I plan to stay here again, to rejuvenate our souls.
Thank you for your kind words.. it is always our pleasure to hear how the guests spend their time here at Orveas Bay. This has been and exceptionally dry summer so it is not as green and lush as it generally is, so you will need to come back again , perhaps in the spring, once again to sway in the hammock and let the world go by. Your review makes our day.!
Just a great area to explore unlimited miles of secluded beaches, hiking trails,set in a magical rain forest setting. Watch ever changing oceanfront activity, Orcas families flash white while spy watching you on shore, soaring bald eagles, shore birds, and occasional wild animals all live in harmony in this wonderful west coast area. A great escape to turn off the noise and your busy life in the city. Yet only a short drive to the airport and ferries. An easy one hour drive to Victoria will bring you to another world. Enjoy seclusion, privacy and comfort in your little cottage by the sea. Visitors come from the world over to see towering cedars, stately firs and experience the solitude and serenity hearing the murmur of the trees and the waves gently lapping the shoreline . Come step back into another time, you deserve it!
