Arrived in rain last night but was soon comforted by the warmth of a
crackling wood scented fire and the laughter and chatter of my beloved
family. Woke up early this morning and looked out to a complete and
utter calm and stillness - where 'peace comes dropping slow'. Such
moments, snatched from busy lives, are precious memories to taste and
savour for days to come with people I love. Shafts of sunlight are
beginning to to make the pine leaves sparkle like crystals. I must out
and sniff the air...............Sybil and Chad, thank you for all of this.
|If you are looking to experience the rugged West Coast this is the place to go! Lots to see and do while still feeling rested and definitely relaxed. The place had it all and made us feel at home. Location was ideal for exploring the outdoors. Kids had a blast looking for clams and just playing on the beach. It was such a treat sitting in the hot tub enjoying the breathtaking view after a day of sightseeing. This place is ideal for all ages. No disappointments!!!!
This was our first VRBO experience for our family of five - and a great experience it was! The property is clean, well equipped and well maintained. The house had everything we needed and more.
We will definitely recommend this property to our family and friends and will be back!
My partner and I stayed at Heron Point House for a few days to relax and enjoy the quiet. It was perfect, all around. The house was spotless with extra little touches that made it very welcoming. This house was exactly what we needed and I would definitely recommend it. The hot tub was easy to manage, and a lovely treat to sit outside and enjoy the crisp air.
The owners didn't contact us throughout our stay, which we liked, but knew they were available if needed.
We will definitely be back!
We booked Heron Point House to celebrate my wife's birthday, and it was the perfect getaway for us and our two young boys. The weather forecast for Victoria was for heavy rains and heavy winds, but Sooke seemed to be sheltered from this, and we had one morning of mild temperatures and sun! We hiked around East Sooke Regional Park in shorts and t-shirts - in December!
The house was well appointed, spotless, and had lots of toys for our boys to play with when the sun went down. The DVD and video collection was huge and had something for everyone. We loved the private beach, which was great for finding shells and skipping rocks. Next time we'll bring some bait and try our hand at crab fishing off the dock. Every afternoon we'd see 2 bald eagles roosting in the large fir tree right outside the house, almost directly above the hot tub. My wife and older son loved the hot tub, the view from it was amazing. I'd always have a fire going in the fireplace by the time they returned from their dip.
One word of caution - drive slowly and watch out for deer on East Sooke Road after the sun goes down! We saw 3 deer crossing the road, and numerous sets of eyes reflected in our headlights.
Highly recommended and we'll be back!
From the moment we pulled in the lane we were in love! Amazing views, property and home.
The kids were at the water before they even went inside watching starfish and crab along the rocks. The home is comfortable and airy and has lots of room for everyone. You can't help but relax at Heron Point House...we will be back!
Arriving at the Heron Point House outside of Sooke, we immediately fell in love with the home, the site, the privacy and the amenities that were provided - the hot tub and beach, too. All we had to do was bring our own, personal items and some groceries we picked up, en route.
We found everything needed; sound system with the flexibility to direct the sound to specific parts of the property (inside & out) added to the experience. We even brought a couple of DVD's with us and were able to enjoy a family 'movie' night.
When preparing meals in the kitchen and on the BBQ; everything was close at hand. As needed, the house came supplied with almost everything needed to keep things neat and tidy. Miscellaneous items could be picked up locally.
On our last night in the unit, we decided to head out for a family meal at the 17 Mile Pub where, earlier in the week, we rode the nearby ADRENA-LINE Zip Line ride and had two full hours traversing the mountain face back down to the home base.
While in the area, took couple of trips out to the Sooke 'Potholes' swim area and found the first, large pool ideal for our wading, stone-skipping and stream-crossing fun! Other trips we enjoyed in town included: a lunch at the Old Venice (?) Bakery, ice cream at the Candy shop just across the street from the Bakery, the Meadery (think wine made with honey), nature watching, sunsets and jogging along East Sooke Road.
Overall. The owners were great people to deal with; due to circumstances beyond their control, we were not able to enjoy wood fires during our time as a result of the dry conditions on the Island. A great stay, indeed!
