Oh Orveas... we love coming back. If you look at the website and wonder "Could this place possibly be as nice as it looks on the website?" I wish to confirm that it is just as lovely, possibly even better, in person. We love this location - a quick hour from Victoria and only 15 minutes past Sooke places Orveas... More

We stayed in the First Mate's Quarters and found it to be warm and inviting. The whole place is very clean with all the amenities you would want. There was even a small unopened milk with butter and jams ready for the morning brews.... as well as the coffee and teas to go with it. Full kitchen supplies and nice... More

Came down here for my birthday this year and had an amazing time. The seclusion yet easy access to everything you need is unreal! The decor is well thought out and it feels just like being at home. If you've forgotten something, no worries as the cabins will likely have remembered for you! Bonus points for the amazing laundry smell... More

Myself and my adult children spent a weekend at this great resort. As the weather was not the best we spent most of our time relaxing in the spacious and comfortable Captain's Quarters. We had the fireplace roaring both nights and used the amazingly stocked kitchen to prepare gourmet meals rather than venturing out in the rain. Highly recommended.

Everything was perfect. The bed was very comfortable. Kitchen well equipped and functional. Grounds are gorgeous with huge trees and beautiful ocean views. It was decorated with all kinds of interesting pictures. Love this spot! Can't wait to spend more time there.

We celebrated our 10th anniversary this weekend. The peaceful grounds, HOT tub and the view... wow! Everything you could need in the sweet little cottage, with the perfect layout for enjoying the view. Perfect base for exploring the beaches to the West and dining in Sooke. We stayed in the Starboard. Highly recommended.

Thank you for your much appreciated review... it is really a nice gesture on your part to take the time to write.. as you know there are books of reviews from our guests but very few write to Trip Advisor.. when I asked a guest who visits twice every year for the past 10 years why they didn't send in...

We drove through the small community of Shirley to the end of Sunnybrae Road and entered a rain forest park-like entrance through to the Port Cottage, well marked. The cottage has a fully stocked kitchen, BBQ, toaster oven, microwave, and 2 burner hot plate, which worked perfectly for our pork tenderloin dinner. We picked up 2 homemade scrumptious muffins (strawberry... More

This is the most beautiful place. Part of me wants to say it was yukky, but that would be selfish. It really is lovely, and you deserve the peace brought on by the surrounding rainforest.
