About gordon fika

My wife and I used to travel west to the Vancouver area Islands with our two children when they were small. We explored the beaches and tidal pools enjoying morning coffee while the kids beach combed, went fishing and hiking, and kayaking. The ocean always has wildlife activity geese, otters, seal and a lot of crab, shrimp and fish.

We rented a house out here in Sooke in 2000 after we completed a week of trekking on the West Coast Trail - and it was a luxurious end to a great experience.

gordon fika purchased this house in 2005

Why gordon fika chose Vancouver Island

We wanted an area close to a city, yet away from it all.

We selected this property because of its spectacular view and quietness, and its location: it's just a short walk to serious coffee, a number of restaurants and groceries.

We just built (sep. 2012) a contemporary west coast style inviting house designed by a Victoria architect: it is quite an improvement to the old house torn down in 2007.

We wanted a clean, efficient and strong house. It is warm and cosy, energy efficient, and built to current seismic standards.

What makes this house unique

WOW, is the word heard most often when people come for a visit. We have a truly stunning view from most rooms in the house and the guest house. You can walk down the 25 steps and explore the beach in low tide. Or sit out in comfort on the decks looking right into the water.

On clear nights you can watch the moon rise and travel, accross the Sooke basin, its reflecting lights playing on the often still waters of the basin.

Handy but away from it all.

Beautiful home with a stunning view!

  • 4 of 5

I stayed here with a group of girlfriends for an annual retreat. Both the main house and the smaller guest house are equipped with everything you would need for a relaxing time away from home. This was the first time we rented this property and we were blown away. We loved the views from every single room in the house. A very high end kitchen in the main house made for an inspiring place to cook and hang out while we had a fire going in the fireplace in the open concept living/dining/kitchen area. Each bedroom had a very comfy bed and the master suite is absolutely stunning with the most beautiful views and spa like bathroom with stand-alone tub. Over all I would highly recommend this place. The only thing I would change and that prevents me from giving the property 5 stars, is it would be nice to have a couple comfy couches upstairs in the living space to facilitate a larger group to hang out close to the kitchen. This is a very minor detail but I think worth mentioning. I hope to rent this property again next year!

Spectacular home and view!!

  • 5 of 5

This is the most amazing vacation home ever! It's modern, beautiful, bright, roomy, has everything you'd ever need and the views are absolutely stunning!! The owners have thought of every possible need - well equipped kitchen, spices, condiments, plenty of fluffy towels, comfortable beds with lovely linens, places to put all of our things, laundry detergent...the list goes on and on. We are three couples who love to traveling together but want to have our own private spaces and bathrooms. It worked perfectly for us, and we all had gorgeous views from our bedrooms as well as in every living space in the home. There are many 'visitors' - deer, numerous birds, seals and otters. It is so relaxing and beautiful that we never wanted to leave!

3rd time here!

  • 5 of 5

Truly a hidden gem on Vancouver Island. Clean, modern and inviting. Gordon and Teresa are great hosts and always made sure to reply to any questions we had within minutes. The home is fully stocked - all you needed to bring was a toothbrush. 5 stars as always. Thanks!
