About Chad Verch
We love West Coast life and all that it has to offer in beauty and recreation. We enjoy travelling and mostly rent other homes through the VRBO network.
Chad Verch purchased this House in 2003
Why Chad Verch chose East Sooke
This property has been in the family since 1950 with the newer house being constructed in 2003 from lumber harvested and milled on the property. The older cottage (not a rental) was built in the early 1920's with an addition added in the late 1940's. This property has over 900 feet of waterfront with a deep water dock, 2 beaches and a rocky point. You can catch legal sized rock and dungeness crab right of the dock. (remember you need a salt water licence that can be purchased online) and the area is abundant in sea and wild life. It truly is a piece of paradise!
What makes this House unique
Southern Vancouver Island has a mild climate with pleasant warm, dry summers and mild, wet conditions in spring, fall and winter. It rarely snows in the lower areas of this region and if it does snow it usually doesn't stay around long. At Heron Point House you will see many varieties of wildlife, both in the water and on land. It is common to see deer, peacocks, otters, raccoons, seals, hummingbirds and bald eagles daily. If you are lucky you may even see one of the local great horned or barred owls. Bears and cougars frequent the area and you may catch a glimpse of one while enjoying one of the many hiking trails nearby.

Damage and incidentals
You will be responsible for any damage to the rental property that is caused by you or your party during your stay.
Everything was just as advertised. There is something very special about this place and its hard to explain until you're actually there . We caught fresh crabs off the dock, saw sea otters and seals, all while watching the landscape drastically change as the tides rushed in and out . We will be back soon!
Thanks Chad for everything!
Peaceful Oceanfront Retreat
We loved our stay! I’m afraid to give this the 5+ star review I did because it will be booked up next time :). We will definitely come again.
The property is one of the mist spectacular I’ve ever seen. 180 degree views, dock, beach, whales, sea otters, seals. What more could you ask for!
The house is clean, well appointed and spacious enough for up to two families with the loft.
There are many hiking trails and beaches within a ten minute drive, a corner store about five minutes away and restaurants about twenty minutes away. It was so amazing we didn’t want to leave!
Great stay at Heron Point House
The property and house were lovely and we really appreciated the extra touches that made our stay great. There were books for our kids, games for us, and even a couple crab traps on the dock for us to experiment with!
Great house. Great location
This was our 2nd time here. Relaxing beauty in a great house. Superb vacation.
