Why Kathie Vitale chose Sooke

As soon as the gates open you will feel at home amongst towering trees and lush gardens lovingly created and maintained by the owner. The cottage gardens are alive with birds and the occasional racoon or otter sighting! Our property is a serene magical place with an inviting waterfront that has majestic sunrises, many migratory birds as well as resident eagles and herons. Just a short pathway down the property leads you to the patio at the waterfront where guests can enjoy all we have to offer! Small beach fires are also permitted when regulations are favourable

Peaceful and tranquil

We spent an amazing three days at this gem. The cottage has everything you desire and is super private. The ocean is a short stroll through the beautifully manicured gardens. Perfect location and Kathie was an amazing hostess, highly recommend!

Phenomenal. So beautiful. So serene. So well set up.

  • 5 of 5

You come to a house in a lush garden. The garden is set up for privacy, there are flowers everywhere! The house is clean and well set up. We came for a stay with our 3 month old son and are leaving relaxed! We haven't felt so relaxed since long before he was born. It was definitely worth our drive!! We would highly recommend this oasis.

Relaxing private cottage

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this place! I was there for a girl's weekend getaway with 2 of my friends. It is a cute little cottage with everything we needed. The private hot tub was awesome after a hard day of crabbing at the boardwalk. One thing that would be nice is a dryer for our wet clothes and towels. Besides that, it was everything we could want for a reasonable price. The place was clean and the bed was comfortable. Kathie ensured that we had our privacy and didn't bother us. The added bonus was the bottle of wine which we definitely enjoyed as soon as we dropped our bags. Thank you for a wonderful weekend in Sooke! We shall be back!

My husband and I stayed at Sweetgrass Cottage for a week and it was truly a little slice of heaven. We escaped from the hundred plus degree temps in Oklahoma to the 60 degree weather and an adorable cottage that was perfect for the two of us. We were warmly greeted by Kathy who left bouquets of flowers and a bottle of wine! We soaked up all the local flavor...went whale watching, explored the various beaches, went kayaking, and our personal favorite...toured Butchart Gardens. We cooked a lot of meals as the food in Canada is a little pricey but the local restaurants were excellent. Kathy made our trip even better with all of her hospitality. You won't go wrong staying here!
