About Rob

We have been renting Oceanfront vacation properties in the Sooke, East Sooke, and French Beach area for 10 years. We love what we do.

Why Rob chose Sooke

Orca Pass is a well-kept vacation home with much to offer a family that needs a little extra space. The outdoor attractions are endless with all the beaches and the scenic drive along the Pacific Marine Circle route.

What makes this house unique

Located near French Beach Provincial Park, a short walk from French Beach itself. The hot tub has a terrific sunset view.

Great view

  • 4 of 5

Neat house in a great location. So quiet and close to some great hikes. The house had great grounds, the hot tub was wonderful and decks were nice, however the home itself was under appointed, it had the basics, but that was it, no extras. The basics were outdated as well. This did not take away from our stay however. We had everything we needed, and that view really is spectacular.

Very nice property!

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent time at the vacation home. It had an amazing view, the home itself had everything we needed. The layout of the home is fantastic. It gave us the ability to be together with the open concept but also had some space for the kids downstairs to watch tv etc without bothering the quiet time when we wanted it. Was just a short trip to the beach with also other trails around the area to travel to in a very short time. Overall our experience was lovely absolutely no complaints.

Fantastic vacation house with a spectacular view!

  • 5 of 5

We chose Orca Pass as our accommodation for a mom's weekend away. We were thrilled with the house. Million dollar view from upstairs and down. The 6 of us were more than comfortable with the 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. From the gas fireplace in the living room to the heated floors in the bathroom we were very cozy during our stay. Hot tub was a nice treat on the chilly nights we had. Very private location in a lovely neighbourhood near a beautiful beach. I would absolutely recommend Orca Pass to friends and family looking for a vacation rental in Sooke.

Thanks so much for a great stay Rob!

Perfect place for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

The place is bigger than it seems in photos. Comfortable beds, pillows and sheets! Everything we needed. Well-stocked kitchen with plenty of dishes for us to prepare and enjoy a Thanksgiving dinner. We were 7 adults and 1 dog. There was lots of space for everyone to be together, and there is enough space for everyone to getaway. The location is stunning! A quick drive to China Beach for a nice hike, rewarded with a long soak in the hot tub. Well cared for space. We would love to return!
