Vancouver Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

This captivating oceanfront property overlooks the peaceful Sooke Basin, just a 40-minute drive from Victoria and a 15-minute drive from the town of Sooke. Located in a peaceful country setting, the cottage is perched at the top of a small hill offering breathtaking views. Steps lead down to the waterfront and your own private dock. A small island just in front of the cottage offers excellent wildlife viewing, where eagle and heron can be seen perched on the trees and seal hunt for fish.

The property is mostly in its lovely natural state. Nestled amongst towering trees, it's the perfect setting for nature lovers, romantic getaways, family vacations, and those simply seeking a quiet respite.

Nestled amongst towering trees, this bright and welcoming oceanfront cottage features spectacular views in a quiet country setting. Superb parks, trails, and beaches are close by, making it a great place to call home while exploring the region. Stroll through the forested trails, wander along the beaches, or hike up to viewpoints with sweeping ocean vistas. Feel like having a lazy day? Grab a drink and relax on the deck, watching the birds fly by at eye level ... or head down to the dock where you can watch for sea life. Do as much as or as little as you like.

Comfort Cove Cottage is a cozy 1100-square-foot chalet-style home on three levels. The main level, where you enter, contains a bedroom with double bed, fully-equipped kitchen, bathroom with tub/shower, dining area, and a living room with large windows and spectacular views. Sliding doors lead out to a spacious deck. Upstairs is the master bedroom with a luxurious king-sized bed and stunning ocean views! There is an ensuite bathroom with sink and toilet, as well as a closet to store your belongings. On the lower level you will find a romantic wood-burning stove, a pull-out sofa bed, and the washer/dryer.

East Sooke is a natural paradise, private yet close to town, known for its lush forests and endless ocean vistas. Treat yourself to a 'supernatural BC' getaway!

About The Owner

We had been visiting Vancouver Island on vacations for many years. In 2000, we vacationed in Sooke and never forgot it - the beauty of the forest trails and the spectacular sunsets over the ocean stayed with us, so when the opportunity arose to purchase a place in the area, we took it! We come out here as often as we can.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2006

Why The Owner chose Vancouver Island

We fell in love with this wonderful little cottage for many reasons... but perhaps the easiest way to explain it is that we love it so much because of the feeling of peace it brings us. The setting is so quiet, so serene... one of our very favourite things is watching the birds from the living room or out on the deck. Starlings swoop towards us, hummingbirds flit around and overhead, all sorts of songbirds flutter around us, and sometimes we are even treated to an eagle landing on one of the trees in front of the deck! Because the cottage is up on the hill, we see the birds at eye-level - it's one of the things we love most!

When we're here, we feel wrapped in nature. The trees surround us and most often, the only things we hear are bird calls. On a clear night, we look up at the amazing display of stars... in the mornings, we watch the mist lift to reveal a stunning sunrise and start of another lovely day on the island.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are about to leave CCC within the next 10 minutes. It was such a wonderful time here that we definitely plan to come back and also tell friends and family about it. Thanks again for giving us the opportunity for such an extraordinary vacation experience!

Fantastic East Sooke Cottage on the water

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful cottage. My wife and I were visiting BC for the first time and came across this rental. The property and home are both gorgeous. Our only real comment is that the pictures don't adequately display the beauty of the property. The home is simple, but that's what we were looking for on this trip. It was well kept, and clean. The path down to the water is incredible as it zigzags to the shore. We really enjoyed watching the crabs and starfish. Totally cool for us inlanders. The home is a perfect base for some really cool adventures in the area. We caught a limit of halibut with Good Time Dave who runs charters close to the cottage. We did a ton of hiking and exploring and got to see the unique natural features of this area. Highly recommended. I also really like the owners' responsiveness in booking and even after our stay. We didn't have any issues, but it's nice to know they are available and super helpful if you need something.

Great little house close to lots of nature

  • 5 of 5

Stayed over the Labour Day long weekend at this little house with the whole family and it was so relaxing!

Besides the great view out the back windows (house is on a bluff) of the bay, there's an easy drive to parks with great oceanside hiking. As well, the house is fully equipped (stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher, bbq, washer/dryer, etc.) and make sure either to bring some supplies or buy them on the way in or at the nearby town.

Furnishings are very comfortable and there's room to spread out in the house on all three floors. Bonus: linen and towels are as good as you'd find in a decent hotel. Remember to bring your own toiletries!

Though there's some supplied rod and reels, make sure to bring your own tackle and other necessities (e.g., crab traps) if you want to try your luck off the dock -- we did and had a couple of days of crab for dinner!

Clear directions and instructions were provided by email and the guest handbook had some helpful hints and some (commonsense) rules for the stay.

Finally, this place allows pets and our dog had a blast hiking with us and exploring up and down from the house to the dock.

Everybody had something they loved about this place -- great for kids and adults and their furry friends who just want to get away!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review! It's such a lovely spot for nature lovers and for people with pets too (lots of adorable doggies have visited)... there are so many great parks, walking and hiking trails, and scenic viewpoints. Glad you enjoyed your trip, and we hope to see you again sometime.
