About Rob

We have rented Skye House for holiday stays in the past. It was popular and people loved the place, but we took it off the rental market to renovate the bathrooms. Now we are offering Skye House for vacation stays again.

Rob purchased this house in 1986

Why Rob chose Vancouver Island

We think this property has it all -- beaches, hilltop views, a dock for our boat, and your boat. There are 2 houses on the property, but there is good separation between them. The other house is our private residence. You won't know we're there (if we are there).

What makes this house unique

The hot tub has the best view by day or night. There is a dock. This is a very romantic private location. Being within a few kilometers of the Galloping Goose Trail, it would be a terrific destination for cyclists coming from Victoria, Langford, or even further away.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi Rob, I just wanted to let you know that we had a good time at Skye House on Anderson Cove. The property is amazing with such a great view. The hot tub on the "helipad" was perfect. Thanks for making this property available to us. We will definitely be back!

Breathtaking hilltop retreat

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

This was a wonderful place for a girls' retreat weekend. It was large and yet cozy; it was clean and organized and well equipped; it was extremely comfortable and welcoming. And what can I even say about the location? The views are stunning; you can't stop looking out the windows, no matter what the weather is like. You feel like you're on top of the world and away from it all. The peace was incredible. And the hot tub was perfectly located to take advantage of the views. I'll definitely be recommending it to friends, and I hope to come back myself!

Communicating with the property manager was easy and fast; we had no problems at all with our experience at Skye House. Loads of towels available, clean and warm bedding and plenty of it, great living room furniture to accommodate six people lounging around together. It was honestly just as advertised, or even better.

Breathtaking vista

  • 5 of 5

Just stayed at Skye House. Magnificent sweeping views - breathtaking even for a long-term BC resident. Place was clean and comfortable. Decks everywhere. The pinball machine and pool table were a fun bonus! Close to the East Sooke Park trail head. Couldn't have been better for a women's getaway!
