The perfect artistic retreat for a single adult or couple. Located on beautiful Gordons Beach (Orveas Bay), overlooking the Salish Sea and Olympic Mountains. A panoramic ocean vista with rare walk-on beachfront and amazing sunsets.

Three steps and you're on the beach. Walk for miles, beachcombing and discovering this natural wonderland. Eagles and gulls soar, seals, otters, Orca whales swim at your doorstep. The driftwood piled high on the shores hint at the winter storms. On sunny days the waves sparkle. The sunset reflecting on the water can be breathtaking. Eventide in this west coast paradise suggests a romantic stroll, star gazing or building a small campfire (when permitted) to enhance the beach experience. On days of 'liquid sunshine' viewing the ocean not a problem from the covered gazebo or the warmth of the cottage. Nearby parks and hikes abound, both easy or wild and wooly. The capital city Victoria only 45 min. away as well as the Airport. Several eateries in the village of Sooke. Experience the best of the Pacific West Coast. All in all, an ideal place to discover and enjoy.

This adult oriented cottage is bright, attractive, cosy and cheerful. The open kitchen-living room has three sides of window showcasing the outdoor natural beauty. The fresh and inviting decor suggests you relax and refresh. Wi-Fi availability. A well supplied kitchenette opens to an inviting courtyard. This sunny wind-sheltered area is the ideal spot to doze and dream. The small but perfect four piece bathroom includes a soaker tub. A seperate cozy bedroom with queen-size bed awaits. There you recline with a picture framed garden and water view. Be lulled to sleep with gentle surf sounds. From the living room french doors lead to a large sheltered gazebo. You'll barbeque your favorites while sipping a glass of wine enjoying the peaceful ambiance. Can life get any better? A surprise awaits around the corner...a private outdoor shower! What a refreshing and exhilarating experience. Having both hot and cold water you'll want to start every day this way. A Little Beach House inspires your creativity and spirituality. Time to wonder, discover, contemplate and meditate.

'Lucy' resident Shitzu, will meet and greet you (tail wagging).

About June Bartel

In l992 I was on my first vacation to Sooke, saw and walked Gordons Beach and fell in love totally. I knew immediately this was the place for me. It felt so right. Two years later on another visit I found this place, bought it immediately and then went back home to Vancouver to sell, pack,and move. I have never looked back. All my friends describe this spot as 'healing, calming, rejuvenating'. Now retired and still enjoying life and people its time to share this bit of paradise.No matter what season, this is the place.

June Bartel purchased this Cottage in 2011

Why June Bartel chose Juan de Fuca

I bought my home to relax and retire. Later the seperate cottage was built to allow others the pleasure of a very special place. If you desire activity and adventure its all In the close area. If you desire solitude and peacefulness, thats a given. Come and enjoy and discover..

What makes this Cottage unique

Wow! to the private outdoor shower. It feels so-o-o naughty but nice. The ocean, the sky, the clouds, the waves, the surf, the rainbows,the colors, the marine wildlife, the marine traffic, the fresh fresh air-----and the peace.

                                                                      Bruno W.

                                                                      We had the most pleasant stay again at the little beach house. There is hardly anything more thrilling, then to listen to the surf on the beach right outside the door.

                                                                      Thank you Mrs.Bartel for another memorable holiday (and the bottle of wine).

                                                                      This cottage overlooking the sea is a wonderfully relaxing place.

                                                                      Hear the steady rhythm of the surf and admire the beauty of the sea and sky, from inside this cozy cottage or outside on the sheltered patio. The pebbled beach extends all the way to ... I don't know, we had to turn back at some point, to barbecue and then watch the sunset. The kitchen is well-equipped and the house is self-contained. It's a private spot and shops are just ten minutes away in Sooke. June is an excellent host, friendly and helpful. It snowed when we were there and it was beautiful. We'll come back!

                                                                      delightful scenery and creative decor

                                                                      Perfect Holiday!

The house is perfect for a romantic getaway and very comfortable. If you love the ocean, hiking in spectacular ancient forests and watching amazing sunsets sipping wine on the gazebo, this is the perfect place for you. We will be back soon!

The gazebo was well sheltered. The sunsets were amazing. Lucy the dog visited everyday and was very friendly. This cottage is worth looking at for a vacation. June was a perfect host and respected our privacy.
