“Be careful”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2007

We stayed at this property in Sept 07. Some of the cabins are quite nice and rustic, but avoid units 5 though 8 at all costs. These are completely charmless, noisy and overpriced.

The standard of hospitalilty is low. The management seem to be completely smug, convinced that they have a 100% great property. The level of hosuekeeping is not good and the restaurant food is so-so.

Also beware the rather stringent cancellation and early checkout policies.

Overall an OK place for a few nights, but there are plenty of better choices elsewhere in the area.

We stayed in Sooke 3 nights during our vacation on Vancouver Island. IT WAS WONDERFUL! Sooke is a 30 minute drive from Victoria and is right on the coast. We stayed at Point-no-Point Resort, a group of secluded cabins right on the cliffs overlooking the bay surrounded by pine trees! The cabins are very spacious, have a bathroom and then an open area which included a small kitchen, table and chairs, bed, dresser, fireplace and comfortable sitting chairs. On the private deck was a hot tub where you can just sit and relax in the cool night air. There isn't a lot in Sooke besides nature and if you like nature and would like a little bit of seclusion to help you get away from it all then this is a perfect location!

This is a tremendous place to stay. It is a great location - isolated, yet convenient enough for dinner out or biking the Galloping Goose Trail. Huge windows and private hot tubs make it tough to leave your room though. The restaurant is good and really even better than the much heralded Sooke Harbor House down the road (though it is very nice there, too).

We arrived on the hottest day the Island had had on record and wondered what we were going to do to survive the afternoon sun in our room! After a drive into town the temperature dropped to 66 degrees and we had a lovely 3 night stay. We hiked, read, napped and relaxed. What an amazing resort in and amazing location. We were in a duplex and loved the privacy and never noticed our neighbors. We're trying to plan our return next summer! The loft was small, but we managed. The first day a bald eagle sat on a branch outside our window for almost 2 hours! That made my trip! Sunset views were wonderful! The restaurant is so romantic!

  • Liked — The privacy.
  • Disliked — lack of head room in half of the loft

Just arrived home from an extended weekend on Vancouver Island. We spent the first two nights @ this resort. we had eaten in the restaurant in the past but never stayed over.
We were delighted with our little cottage. We were in cottage 12, which is the furthest fr the restaurant. it had a loft for sleeping quarters with a little spiral staircase leading to it. you literally crawl into bed. There is a window built in so that you can see the ocean fr your bed. there is a small but complete kitchen area, a sitting area with fireplace. The bathroom was big, with roomy shower and big corner bath. outside, a completely private deck with ocean view and hottub for two.
The grounds were lovely, with secret little paths here and there leading to different beaches.
We ate supper @ their restaurant. It was very nice with a wonderful view and good service. Food was very good, presented well. .....maybe a little salty.
You should bring your own breakfast supplies, as they don't serve. there is a coffee maker, of course, but no sugar, cream etc. Also slippers would be a good idea. they supply robes.
I assume it functions as a housekeeping type place as the only thing the cleaners did was deliver clean towels and make the bed. there was no "cleaning". wood for the fireplace, however was delivered every day.
Overall, We felt this was a wonderful diamond in the rough. highly recommend it. would love to see other cabins

What a fantastic place with wonderful scenery. We stayed in cabin #13. It was very small, but the view of the sea was great. If I had it to do over again, I would have booked a little bit bigger cabin with a hot tub.

This is a very affordable little property with a lot of room to roam. No one is allowed in the facilites unless they are a guest, which is nice.

I only have 1 complaint. They really need to retire the sheets. Ours had"pilled". If you don't know what this means, it means the sheets are not of a very good quality, and they have little cotton balls on them. This didn't bother my husband, but it drove me nuts. I felt like there was sand in the bed.

However, I would still go back. I would probably take my own sheets - just in case.

The resort is owned by a family, and everyone we met was so sweet.

We did not eat in the inn, but we did go over for dessert one night. We had the bread pudding with white chocolate soup. yummy!

The view from the restaurant is beautiful.

If I had the money and the time, I could stay here for a month and just become one with nature. No tv, no noise, just wild life and the beauty GOD gave us.

Great. Go. Give yourself a treat! Very affordable too.

However, make SURE you buy your food in town before you go. Otherwise, it will take you 20 minutes one way just to get back to town to buy chow.

We stayed at Point No Point for a few nights in August 06 with some friends who had stayed there before. It was great! We had a duplex (#s 9 & 10), so that they were in one unit and my wife and son and I were in the other.

The accommodations were spotless and had pretty much everything we needed. The kitchen utensils, etc., were a little sparse, but that was not a big deal at all. The back yard of the duplex looked out over the ocean where we were able to see some humpback whales coming by! Firewood was provided for each unit, and the fireplace was even prepared with paper and kindling.

It was great to sit near the back window with my mug of coffee in the morning, watching the sun come up on the Olympic range across the Juan de Fuca Strait.

One evening we bought some hot dogs and went down to the "beach house," a shelter with a fire pit on a small beach, and had a hot dog roast for dinner. A few whales came by to say hi - wow!

Our final evening, we ate at the restaurant on the property, and it was spectacular.

This resort seems primarily oriented toward couples, but we found it to be perfectly suited to us with our 11-year-old son.
