Children can play on the safe sand bar, where they can be easily supervised from the sun deck and the Hot-Tub for eight, overlooking this spectacular beach with extraordinary views of the Pacific Ocean, the Olympic Mountains, Mount Baker, and Victoria, British Columbia.

Wildlife abounds including whales, seals, otters, and an incredible array of birds including, bald eagles, hawks, blue herons, and humming birds. Watch cruise ships and giant ocean-liners as they quietly make their way to Alaska, the Orient, and other world destinations.

Sunrises are spectacular and the home is bright and sunny all day long.

The computer area includes a state of the art system with color printer and broadband Internet access. The lower level of the home includes a play area, a treadmill, nautilus weight system and pool table. A sunny back-yard patio overlooks a grassy and private play and garden area complete with a water view hammock made for two!

SandGate is located in a quiet, tranquil country setting where you can purchase fresh farm vegetables and eggs just down the road and pick fresh blackberries right on the property. And it's ideal for visiting Victoria and other parts of Vancouver Island. Victoria is only a 30 minute easy drive, where you can visit the world famous Fairmont Empress Hotel, the Royal BC Museum, Beacon Hill Park, and numerous other tourist attractions.

The Butchart Gardens is a 40-minute drive. Golfing (Spectacular Olympic View and The Royal Colwood Golf Courses are within a few minutes), diving, ocean (salmon, halibut, crabs) and lake fishing, sea kayaking, horseback riding, hiking and bike trails, tennis courts, wildlife sanctuaries, shopping, and the Casino are all nearby! The possibilities are endless!

Rural oasis

  • 5 of 5

Wow what a lovely place! We just spent 3 nights at Sandgate. Had such an enjoyable time. The house is so well set up and the location is amazing. Perfect for a family vacation. Something for everyone. We used the bikes, kayaks, pool table, hot tub and of course the scrabble game and crib board.We appreciated that our dogs were welcome as well since they are a huge part of our families. Be sure to check out the fudge stand just up the road, best fudge ever and the sweetest lady selling it! Thanks Paul for everything. Great memories for our family!

Wonderful home - all the fun of a resort

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our stay on Vancouver Island. Whenever we vacation - we always rent home through VRBO. This ranks as one of the best. It's really a great spot - beautiful beach with private access - pretty quiet - and reasonably convenient to Sooke and Victoria.

Paul, the owner, was fantastic and very accommodating - waiting for us with a late arrival and then warmly welcoming us to the home and making sure we were comfortable and set up dip or the next morning (even ran to the grocery store so we had breakfast). The house is very well equipped. The bikes, kayaks, crab traps, RIB all got used. The downstairs with pool table and separate sitting area and tv was great for the kids - and morning coffe and evening wine was fantastic on the deck overlooking the water. Really a great spot - highly recommended.

Can't wait to come back!!

  • 5 of 5

This place was amazing...Paul went above and beyond for us. With 5 kids and a dog, you don't usually get that kind of reception LOL. Made all kinds of memories here and hope to come back someday and make more if Paul will let us.

Beach access was great and we were able to watch the kids have fun playing in the sand while BBQing on the deck. The hot tub was a nightly ritual that the kids loved and the robes for everyone were a nice touch especially for some family pictures.

The kids also loved the loft and the basement pool table and darts and game system. We loved the kitchen, deck and fireplace. And our dog loved the fenced in backyard.

Hope to come back in the future and just spend time at the house now that we've got all our Victoria sightseeing done this trip LOL. And maybe schedule a little fishing time too!!

Hidden Gem!!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this place last weekend for my 30th birthday. It was my best birthday yet! Beautiful sandy beach with a deck and hot tub that looks over the ocean. The owners are very nice and helpful. I will be booking this place every year from now on!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a family getaway here this year and just absolutely loved it. It was perfectly set up, with water in the front, and a nice sunny lawn in the back. The kitchen was well equipped, and everything was sparkling clean for our arrival. We loved using the bikes and kayaks as well, especially with the proximity to the galloping goose! We will most definitely be back!

Incredible blessing!

  • 5 of 5

Such an astounding getaway!

All the comforts you need!

This property created a seamless, perfect getaway. We felt completely taken care of! Paul has thought of every detail! It felt like a huge hug!

We hosted my mom's 65th birthday, and this rental was delightful for grandmas as well as grandkids.

My fiancé loved how you could see the shoreline so well from the hot tub. The sunrises were dazzling. Sunsets on clear evenings illuminated snow-covered Mt. Baker! The plush bath robes were great. Great bathroom towels. Plenty of beach towels. Laundry and a dishwasher. A spacious fridge. Every kitchen convenience was thought of including spices and foil, cling film etc. Comfortable beds and covers. Panoramic ocean view. Picked dozens of strawberries! Even had the man cave in the basement! So close to what feels like a private beach...Awesome! Thanks be to God--it was wonderful! Am very grateful to Paul too. :)
