About Trinita Waller & Jeff Letain

Jeff Letain and Trinita Waller are both artists. They share and intense love for nature. The property and house have been a labor of love since buying a little cabin by the water in 2002. The major renovation and addition to the house was designed and built by Jeff. Trinita was a little less hands on with the building and her design abilities are evident all through the house. Much of the woodwork in the house is Jeff's craftsman ship. The home is a gallery for both of their work. If you would like to see more art and woodwork ask for a tour of the shop / studio.

Trinita Waller & Jeff Letain purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Trinita Waller & Jeff Letain chose Vancouver Island

Once we found Sooke, we fell in love. The property is a mix of rock, arbutus, towering heritage fir trees and amazing views. Jeff's love of wood and trees was a motivating force to go ahead and make the property our own. We are both artists and have a studio that you are welcome to visit at the top of the hill. We have a large green house on our personal part of this acreage where we grow a variety of produce. Renters are welcome to come and see and we will show you what you are welcome to eat.

Amazingly relaxing, beautiful home & views.

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of enjoying this vacation home over a weekend. There was plenty room for all our guests, lots of space to spread out. The views were beautiful and the layout of the house was very functional. Hottub was enjoyed by all, grassy area facilitated some catch. Enjoyed dropping the crab trap in the basin and going for a nice row when the water was calm. DEFINTELY a home I would like to stay at again.

Fantastic location! Fantastic property!

  • 5 of 5

Jeff met us upon our arrival and gave us a quick tour of the property and amenities. Clean, well maintained! Kitchen was well-equipped; loved the gas stove top :)

Great layout which suited our two families (4 adults, two children) quite well. Large kitchen and dining areas. In addition to open-concept living room (with wood burning fireplace and amazing views out large windows), there is a very generous TV room on the lower level. Hot tub was perfect! Row boat was a fun perk - particularly as the weather was calm and clear :)

The property exceeded our expectations!

Fantastic spot for girls weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Seven of us had a fantastic weekend here. Absolutely gorgeous spot where we could go for a walk or hot tub or just hang out around the kitchen table. Plenty of room for the 7 of us and fantastically stocked kitchen. It was a treat!
