About Katherine and Ryan

We are a family of four who live on the property. We have worked hard to make this place our home, and look forward to sharing it with guests. After living in New Zealand for two years, and exploring different parts of North America, and experiencing awesome hospitality, we thought it would be amazing to bring the world to our doorstep, and host people ourselves.

Katherine and Ryan purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Katherine and Ryan chose Sooke

This property has the 'Wow' factor. The day we initially viewed this property, we sat in the house for nearly an hour and just imagined what it would be like to look at this view our whole lives. We watched the sun sparkle off the water, the morning mist moved in and out, the birds, the boats, the seals. The view is constantly changing! We immediately wrote an offer, and the rest - as they say - is history.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed in this suite for 3 months and absolutely loved our time there. It is newly renovated, very clean and well-stocked with everything you could need. The waterfront location is very convenient being just a 5-minute walk to downtown Sooke. We had our own balcony with an awesome view of the ocean. Katherine and Ryan were great hosts. They respected our privacy but were also very quick to help us with anything or answer any question we had. I highly recommend this suite if you are looking for somewhere to stay in Sooke.

Peaceful, Clean, Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay at the Harborside Haven. It was the perfect springboard for all of our Sooke area adventures. The hot tub was especially a perk after a long days of hiking and beach combing! Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Charming private stay with a view

  • 5 of 5

The private room was a really nice private apartment in the small town of Sooke. Katherine was very engaging and helpful. The apartment had a lovely veranda overlooking the water. We would definitely recommend this location.

Perfect location, comfortable accommodation with stunning views.

  • 4 of 5

Easy walking distance to local facilities and easy to locate. Great access to sites of interest. We loved breakfast time on the deck and being able to get down to the water from the garden. Clean and well equipped apartment.

Beautiful, quite getaway

  • 5 of 5

The suite is beautifully renovated with a nice living room, a fully equipped kitchen, a queen-size bedroom and a tasteful designed bathroom. From the deck, there is an amazing view other the bay. Kathrine got us high chair and a baby crib for our son and her son even brought us toys. Ryan also gave us a lot of useful tips what to do on Vancouver Island. BIG THANKS FOR THAT! We could pick fresh raspberries and blackberries from the garden and enjoyed the hot tub as well as the BBQ. We had an awesome time and would love to return for another vacation.

Lovely suite with view of Sooke Basin

  • 5 of 5

Spent 2 nights in this new, clean and well appointed suite. Quiet with beautiful view of Sooke Basin. Convenient location in town, but very private from neighbours. The kitchen and BBQ were great for preparing meals. Hot tub was a bonus. Perfect for 2-3 people, but a little small for 4 of us. Would definitely recommend to friends. Katherine was helpful in her emails and quick to respond.

Thank-you for a great stay!

Amazing Experience!

  • 5 of 5

The place was clean and tidy upon arrival, and completely stocked with everything we could ask for. Kitchen was really well equipped, which made it really easy to cook several of our meals, although the restaurants in the area made it hard to stay in! The property is gorgeous, and having the hot tub for a late night soak was the best. Would 100% recommend for anyone looking for a place in the area.
