About Rob

We have been renting to holiday guests for 10 years and are proud to offer Madrona Cottage

Rob purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Rob chose Vancouver Island

I personally like this cottage for its quiet luxury and the tranquil beauty that surrounds it. Madrona Cottage is a great place to paddle a kayak with its access to the best stretch of shoreline in Sooke Harbour.

What makes this cottage unique

The sheltered peaceful decks and the feeling that you are away from it all make this cottage a real gem. The hot tub on the deck is just steps from the cottage . The locally made quality cedar deck furniture is comfortable and allows you to just sit and watch the water.

Great property!

  • 5 of 5

The Madrona cottage was extremely comfortable with every amenity a person needed. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a quiet place that is out of the way and very clean. Also, very stocked kitchen (with utensils, pans, etc.) if you want to do your own cooking.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

The location of this cottage was perfect. Only about a 45 min drive into Victoria but far enough away for some peace and quiet. There are neighbors but we did not hear them very often. The cottage was perfect size for the 2 of us and still would have worked if we would have brought our 2 youngest children. There are a lot of stairs so be prepared. My husband kept calling it the house of stairs. The views of the ocean are perfect. We would love to come back during the Summer season. If you stay here make sure you hike to Mystic Beach. It was so worth it.

The booking was perfect with a lot of communication both ways.

Comfortable, cozy with great views

  • 4 of 5

I went for a long weekend away with my parents. The house was very comfortable and well stocked. The kitchen had every dish and appliance that you could want; including a proper coffee pot and ice maker in the freezer. All of the rooms were very clean and spacious. There were many stairs in the house which were a bit of a pain for my parents, but it is not something to complain about, just be aware if there are mobility issues. We had a power outage for a few hours one night, but the house was stocked with many flashlights and candles. The hot tub was amazing. Overall a very nice get away!

We loved almost everything about Madrona Cottage!

  • 3 of 5

The cottage was gorgeous and very well equipped and the view was amazing. We did however encounter the unfortunate noise of construction right next door which started at 8am and continued until after 6pm. This wouldn't have normally bothered us however we rarely get quiet time together. This was our 17th wedding anniversary escape and we were both looking for some rest and relaxation which we didn't get until after the construction crew left for the day.

Cosy and quiet retreat

  • 5 of 5

We have spend a week with our adult kids during Christmas time at Madrona cottage and it was the perfect place for us. I had never seen such a well equipped kitchen in a rental property and it was perfect for our family Christmas cooking. We enjoyed the wood fireplace and the hot tub and were able to explore the trails in the nearby parks. As nature lovers, Madrona cottage was a great choice for our family.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments Frederique! I take a lot of pride in maintaining Madrona Cottage and renting it out to people who appreciate it. It is the perfect location for exploring the offerings of nature. As you implied, there are plenty of beautiful trails. The beach at Madrona Cottage is a good place to keep and launch a kayak. I hope you come back!

East Sooke offers a great variety of outdoor experience. Aylard Farm Park's beach is a safe protected ocean beach. The coastal hiking trails that go west from Aylard Farm park are a must-do for walkers. The other end of these trails is located at Iron Mine Bay on the other side of East Sooke. The Galloping Goose Trail is a level and easy alternative for walkers and bike riders of all ages. East Sooke is rural community with organic farms and locally produced craft items and baked goods available mainly on weekends.
