Sooke House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

Lighthouse Point Retreat is an exquisite new luxury Oceanfront home with breathtaking views of the Olympic mountain range. You will LOVE this sunny south facing property, where sightings of seals, otters, pods of orcas, and eagles in flight are normal occurrences!

This is your perfect retreat for one or two couples. Your bright and spotless bedroom with a queen bed and big ocean and nature view has its own ensuite bathroom while additional guests can get a restful sleep on the comfortable new living room sofa bed with easy access to the second bathroom.

Stairs will take you to your own private beach, where you can easily launch a kayak or canoe. Fish for salmon right from shore, or set your own crab trap. Bar-B-Q your own catch from the private patio and enjoy your own casual seaside dining experience.

This new luxury cottage is ideal for those seeking privacy and solitude in a magnificent oceanfront setting.

The large picture windows and doors throughout your vacation home bring nature to your 'inside' living experience. Enjoy your breakfast in the clean ocean air where you'll be at one with nature. You'll absolutely enjoy basking in the sun on this southerly exposed property where natural light infuses the home and property throughout the day. Take a nature walk on the meandering 3 km forested trail starting only steps from home.

Exploring: You will find many beaches to explore, the nearest of which, French Beach, is only a 3 minute drive away or you may take a leisurely walk there instead. You can experience the splendor of Sandcut, China, Sombrio, or Gordon's Beaches all within a few minutes drive away - and this is just to name a few! A little further on is Botanical Beach where you will explore tide pools and experience the small community of Port Renfrew.

Dining: You'll find Sooke, 20 minutes drive away, has all that you will need: 2 major grocery stores, a wonderful bakery with Artisan breads and delicious pastries, fine dining restaurants along with a variety of delicious more casual dining options, natural food store, farms selling fresh eggs enroute, local honey, local fresh fish, and much more.

Activities: There's no end to what you can do should you decide to pry yourself away from your retreat! Hiking, kayaking, fishing, boating, beachcombing, touring, surfing, windsurfing, kiteboarding, cycling, off-roading, birding, or take in the sights of Victoria an hour away.

About The Owner

We really enjoy outdoor activities like hiking, cycling, kayaking, beachcombing, and relaxing in the oceanside air with great books. We find this property provides everything we need for a rejuvenating break from our normal pace of life. Our love of nature is satisfied to it's fullest everytime we come here!

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why The Owner chose Vancouver Island

We fell in love with the natural beauty of this rugged coast the first time we laid eyes on it. There is a soothing beauty to the rythym of the waves as they spray against the rocky shore, there is excitement in the orca and grey whale sightings, and we enjoy watching the majestic eagles soar above the sea. We enjoy the forest trail just steps away, and the various local beaches. All this with the backdrop of the magnificent Olympic mountain range! We love that it's easily accessible from the Victoria and Nanaimo ferries. There are great local restaurants within a short drive, and downtown Victoria is only an hour away.

What makes this house unique

We experience a trememdous connection to nature here and when we arrive, all the tension just melts away and goes out with the tides! It's so thrilling to be able to sit and spot whales, dolphins, seals, otters, eagles from our home! Also, we love taking a stroll through the meandering trail just steps away. The night sky is special here...no light pollution means we get to enjoy the brilliant canopy of stars.

Breathtaking

Beautiful property, stunning views, amazing location. Spent hours on deck watching the amazing ocean views and all the wildlife. Everything was perfect ..... apart from the fact we had to go home! Can't wait to return.

Very Special Spot

  • 5 of 5

A really special cottage in a wonderful location. The view across the wide water to the USA is brilliant. The silence only disturbed by the chug of fishing boats trolling near the lighthouse. Plenty of wildlife swimming past to lookout for and fishing from your own shingle beach and cliffs. Cottage is well equipped (for us, only lacking an ipod dock for some mood music and sun loungers). Its a long way back to town & we ate in every night as no restaurant could have matched our table view!

What an amazing week we spent at the Lighthouse Point retreat celebrating our 40th anniversary. Words just seem inadequate to express the peacefulness, solitude, and pure sense of tranquility that we experienced all week long. Every window had stunning views of either the ocean or the rain forest. No need for TV as the property manager Dawn (who is wonderful) summed it up.. you have the nature channel on 24/7. We saw sea otters, seals, hummingbirds, stellar jays, and had an eagle visit for a couple of days in a nearby tree. We took our chairs close to the ocean front.. my husband fishing off the rocks and myself, gazing at wind formations on the surface of the water, or the large ships in the distance or just listening to the waves crash on the rocks below. Food for the soul. We had our coffees and applies on the patio and ate all our meals ( except one) with an ocean view table!! Doesn't get any better. The cottage was very elegantly decorated and equipped with everything.. a coffee press which we love, washer and dryer, lovely dishes, impeccably clean bedding and linens and even a first aid kit. They have thought of everything!! This area around Sooke is beyond beautiful and we visited rain forests and amazing beaches that can take your breath away. This sweet cottage was the perfect place for us to celebrate our anniversary.. an oasis in the busyness of life. We left not wanting to leave and are hoping that we one day we can come again. Thank you Eleana.

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

We had the best week at this amazing little cottage. The views are the most beautiful I've ever seen. Most of the days and evening were spent on the back porch enjoying the wildlife and views. We saw whales, otters, bald eagle, bunnies, deer and a seal. We hiked to all the beaches around. Highly recommend driving out to Port Renfrew and having lunch at the resort there. Just an absolute amazing experience I'll never forget. Oh, the weather was crazy awesome!!!

PARADISE!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed at this property over the Thanksgiving weekend and it was heaven! We live an hour away and just wanted a break from busy schedules and we couldn't have asked for a better getaway! We lucked out and had amazing weather (warm full sunshine) which made for clear mountain views across to Washington State. We sat and watched 3 humpback whales all day Sunday, 8 river otters playing on the beach below, eagles, bunnies and seals. We came prepared with groceries and didn't leave the house (except to hike and walk to French Beach) the entire weekend. The house comes with everything you will need for a perfect getaway...if I could buy this house...I would!!! Views are amazing, full privacy, home is beautiful and you couldn't ask for a more perfect location.
