“Nothing lacking! Perfect stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

My wife and I spent our honeymoon in the First Mate's quarters at Orveas Bay and could not have been happier with our time there. The views are majestically spectacular and are made all the more enjoyable by June and Ron's flawless care of the property. There is not a single detail that escapes their attention as every need is met throughout one's stay. The cottage is so perfectly comfortable, complete with full kitchen, grill, fireplace, hot tub overlooking the sea and mountains, bath, shower, two queen beds, plenty of seating, hammock, tv, dvd player, and even bouquets of fresh cut flowers! I hope it will not be long before we return to the paradise of Orveas Bay!

We stayed in the Captain's Quarters at Orveas Bay for two nights from April 7th to 9th. The weather was perfect and the place excellent. It's very clean, tastefully decorated and equipped with everything one could need during the stay. The rooms are large and bright with beautiful view. The deck has a grill and hammock. There is also a hot tub outside and it felt private (I think there were only 2-3 other families that weekend). The place is serene and the stay is very relaxing. There are several beaches, parks and trails in the area worth visiting. We recommended this place to all our friends, in fact, one friends family stayed there in May and had the same feedback as us.
We would definitely go back again and for more than 2 nights. Maybe a week.
Thank you Ron for the great vacation.

We just returned from 4 wonderful, peaceful days at Orveas. It was such a pleasure to stay there. Everything you could imagine was provided. Ron's attention to detail in the construction of the cottage was amazing. June's decorative flair was everywhere we looked. The private hot tub made it even more special and secluded. The best seafood chowder to be had is at the 17 Mile House Pub outside of Sooke. A restaurant called "Edge" is superb as well.

Thank you Ron and June for making our 1st vacation in 24 years a memory we will cherish forever. John and Teri Clearbrook, MN

This was our last stop on a 2 week tour of BC & Alberta in Sept 2008 and we were looking forward to the planned luxury after spending a few days at a time touring and staying in either cabins or hostels. This did not disappoint and we were just sad we could not have stayed longer to enjoy.
We were shown around the Captain's Quarters by Ron who also recommended some great sights for our last few days on Vancouver Island- including a whale watching tour which we were able to book from the comfort of the cottage and a lovely restaurant (our last taste of luxury before home).
The cottage itself was fantastic with roaring fires and so tastefully decorated- looks like it came straight from a magazine- we were all in awe and wanted to live there let alone stay longer!
The owners themselvs are very hospitable and have thought of everything needed to stay here- we were pleasantly surprised to find breakfast cereals included.

In all- absolutely loved the cottage, the location, the views and the ease to book and stay. Thank you!!

Room Tip: Captains Quarters- to die for!

I had a group gathering this past weekend, and we were all was so thrilled not only by June and Ron's hospitality, but by the amazing accommodations and breathtaking location (we rented the entire Beach House, well worth it). Everything was perfect, just like staying in someone's perfectly equipped and very comfortable and roomy home.
You will love the artistry of these handcrafted and artsy home structures and gardens.. not to mention the great hot tub overlooking the straight. Take the walk to the beach, but bring the walking stick, it's kinda steep! Enjoy!!

My husband and I have stayed at Orveas Bay many times over the last several years and went again last week..This place is an absolute gem. When we first went..we had no idea what to expect as it is down a country road..but the discovery was worth it. There are many "home" touches in the rooms and the grounds are lovely. The Wiliams are very hospitable and we look forward to returning in the spring.

This past weekend was my third visit to Orveas Bay. I have stayed with friends in each of the two cottages. I now want to make this a quraterly escape!

The drive from Victoria is peaceful and arriving to the natural , private setting is instantly calming to me.

We always prepare a simple meal and eat overlooking the ocean. The touches in the cottages are so subtle yet ensure you feel at home.

The sound of crickets and the ocean are soothing and make it difficult to leave.

I recommend this getaway to everyone for an escape for one or a family reunion.

Room Tip: Each accomodation ensures the same privacy and beauty
