The title says it all! My husband and I stayed 5 nights at this A + + B & B. We decided to have a base to stay, while we toured around. It could not have worked out better. The location was ideal. Day trips to Victoria, Butchart Gardens and Port Renfrew area were easy and scenic drives. Elisabeth and... More

My wife and I were quite wore down from the daily hustle and bustle of Vancouver and decided to go for a short trip to Sooke as we had heard many good things about this community. We found our way to the quaint door steps of A Point of View where our wonderful hosts Gary and Elisabeth made us feel... More

My husband and I celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary at this lovely home this past weekend. Gary and Elisabeth, as all the reviews have indicated, are friendly hosts who guided us on where to explore, hike and eat. The breakfasts were amazing . . . unlike anything we have experienced at other B&Bs. Beautiful presentation and so tasty! One night... More

A Point of View is the personification of the perfect B&B: lovely accommodations and a healthy gourmet breakfast all managed by Elisabeth and Gary who are cordial and caring owners of this beautiful home just outside of Sooke. You are about a 5 - 10 minute drive west of Sooke at Otter Point, so out of the town traffic and... More

The wonderful view of the Juan de Fuca Strait is surpassed only by the congeniality of the hosts. Elisabeth and Garry are very knowledgeable about the area and go out of their way to accommodate their guests. I had a very pleasant and relaxing stay at the B&B and the Sooke environs..

We have not had a better breakfast. Ever. Seriously. We stayed three nights here and it was clean, comfortable, welcoming and beautiful! One of our favorite vacations.

We were on a two week visit to Vancouver Island and stayed with Elizabeth and Garry for a couple of nights. They run a lovely guest house where the hospitality and attention to detail is outstanding. Having travelled extensively this is one of the best B&B's we have stayed in.
