An architectural gem. Original design features of the house remain and combined with the spectacular view of the ocean, garden and forest combine to make this a very special property. The house has been carefully furnished to ensure a comfortable and relaxing vacation for couples or families. Fully equipped for a comfortable stay (linens, towels, kitchen supplies, kitchen appliances etc etc). Relax on the deck, the wood burning fireplace or one of the special seating areas located around the property on the walk down to the waterfront. Try fishing or swimming off the rocks, spotting eagles, seals and whales from the deck and waterfront. There are also all the amenities and activities (restaurants, museums, zip-lining, hiking, fishing tours, kayaking tours etc) available in Sooke and Victoria only a short drive away.

About Jackie Straughan
We came to BC with work, and fell in love with the island and the weather. We both enjoy hiking, biking and kayaking, and what better place to do all that than here.
Jackie Straughan purchased this Cottage in 2016
Why Jackie Straughan chose Sooke
Our work brings us all over Canada. (we splice fiber for the telecom industry ) My wife and I have seen some truly amazing places But they do not seem to compare to the AW inspiring views and feeling we get from the East Sooke house property. We hope you can experience it first hand.
What makes this Cottage unique
Rating from previous Guests Erlangen, Germany Great views in quiet surroundings We stayed there for twelve days and really enjoyed the house and the garden with all the variety of birds stopping by, the rabbit family living there and a deer from time to time outside the fenced area. The view over the bay is stunning each time of the day and we didn't get tired of it. We cooked every day, kitchen is well equipped and in good condition. Our son is 6 and the shorter trails had been ideal. Some nice beaches close by. Stayed: May 2015 Submitted: June 15, 2015 Source: VRBO

Beautiful house and deck- comfortable seating everywhere. Well appointed and convenient.
The cottage has a beautiful view and a private setting and came with everything we needed. It was a great stay.
Rodney and Jackie are gracious hosts. The house is very clean and offers amazing views. We would definitely stay here again!
very quiet, with 10/10 view of the water, feels secluded, yet close to amenities, an overall wonderful 4 day stay.
