Stayed here for 3 nights in August 2016. Height of the tourist season and unseasonably hot weather part of the time, but my pleasant room at this b'n'b and its quiet location outside of the main town of Sooke made for a great visit. The proprietors, Karen and Rick, were so friendly and gracious. The property is small but there... More

Accommodation was very spacious. Fantastic location. Breakfast menu was plentiful, varied and beautifully presented. Added attraction of a private beach. Hosts were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. Would definitely return there. HW London.

Ours was a blind booking, but I've never been more pleased with accommodations. A big surprise was the breakfasts which I hadn't expected - and they were absolutely delicious.

This was a great place to spend a weekend. We were able to visit many places because of its location, from the coast to Victoria. The room was wonderful. The owners were great. They had great recommendations for places to eat and visit. They even told us were to find fossils. We would definitely visit again.

We enjoyed the stay. It was a pleasant room with a view of the ocean, and the breakfasts were great. One can climb from the inn down to the beach, which had no people when we were there. The inn in convenient to town.

Unbeatable view, no TV but that was an added bonus. Sit in the chairs inside or on the lawn and watch the marine traffic to Seattle and Vancouver. This is a place to chill out and not check your emails. Minor issue is that a bit of soundproofing between floors would be nice, but quieter than most hotels. Wonderful owners... More
