This accommodation is a real gem. Hidden away outside of Sooke, you really feel like you are away from it all. We stayed in the Starboard cottage for 2 nights. The view is simply fantastic. The cottage has everything you need to be able to cook (i.e. plates, utensils etc) as well as great extras such as the basics (herbs,... More

The accommodations are unique and clean. While there is limited access to WIFI, no cable/satellite, and no cell coverage; we couldn’t ask for a better place to relax. There are times when you need to disconnect from the world and recharge. Orveas Bay Resort is great base for day tripping or just enjoying this expansive property. Our whole family left... More

Thanks for your great review... it is very much appreciated... we have now completed the stairway to the beach , so much easier access than our old winding path! Very happy to hear you enjoyed the accommodations ... yes, sometimes it is a good thing to turn off from the busy world! We hope to see you again. More

The First Mates cabin is an attached suite with bedrooms upstairs and down. The adjacent suite can be accessed via an interior door, if you have a large and familiar group and want to share the two spaces. The suite was a mix of rustic Victorian style and nautical themes. All amenities were well kept and clean. Towels had a... More

We had four lovely nights to celebrate our anniversary, sleeping on a bed like a cloud, relaxing in the hot tub and lounging in front of the fire. Orveas Bay Resort offered a warm welcome and the privacy of our own piece of the Bay. We ate fabulous meals just down the road at Point no Point, terrific food and... More

My wife and I stayed at Orveas Bay Resort for a week in early April. We were so incredibly happy with our choice of places to stay. Our Starboard Cabin was so very welcoming, comfortable, and well appointed for our needs. There is great view of the Juan de Fuca Staight from our more than comfortable staged bed through the...

Last year we decided once or twice a year we need to come to Orveas to relax. It's always so calming with the fountains behind the hot tub, while you are soaking in the tub and looking out onto the ocean. It's cozy, has everything you need. . And it's quiet. I always feel so refreshed leaving from our weekend... More

Orveas bay resort was relaxing and scenic. Ron and June were very welcoming and very helpful. The accommodations were beautiful and the amenities were a bonus.

June and Ron were fantastic hosts: very kind and helpful. My family of 4 rented the captain's quarters and my son has severe asthma. June was very understanding with what cleaning products could be used and moving new furniture that could be off-gassing formaldehyde that could trigger an asthma attack. She also remembered not to use room scents for us.... More
