Ocean Wilderness Inn is a little off the beaten path, but well worth the 15 minute drive from Sooke. Quiet and peaceful, the room was large and comfortable, with chairs facing the large windows with views of the water. The bed was very comfortable and the shower was to die for. Rick was friendly and helpful. And the grounds were lovely. Very pleasant stay.

My husband and I stayed 2 nights here. Karen and Rick are so friendly, helpful, and welcoming! Rick told us where to hike and Karen gave us fantastic restaurant ideas. The views are stunning. There is a nice path going down to the beach. At the beach we saw otters and seals! We could see the Washington state mountains from our room and had our normal American cell service (Verizon) because we were so close to the stares! The room was clean and the bed was so comfy. There are robes, coffee, and tea in the room. The breakfast was very tasty. Wonderful view of stars. Highly recommend!!!

Absolutely great place to stay, the view, the rooms and the hosts, all part of a great experience. Two nights only, basically too short. Extra's above standard the good advices given about our plans, a great breakfast and organizing us a breakfast to go when we wanted to leave early. Do not forget to walk down to the beach!

We stayed at Ocean Wilderness for two nights and were stuck by what a stunning location it is. Once you turn off the highway it gives the feeling of complete tranquility, with the secluded location, and garden path winding down to the ocean. Rick and Karen were great hosts with a warm welcome and great advice. Room was comfortable and well equipped. Very much enjoyed the stay.

We had a lovely visit. OWI had everything we needed - access to ocean walks, eagles, seals, hummingbirds, comfy beds, views, great breakfast, accommadating hosts, hot tub, good advice and in-room coffee. The walk down to the beach is about 300 steps so if you aren't mobile, you will have to be satisfied with the great view! But what a view!

Thanks for staying with us... and the beach is a lot closer than you think! Remember... 150 steps down but yes!! 300 up. It was great to have you here. Please visit us again when you are on the island. Safe travels, Rick and Karen
