My father and I had a wonderful time with our gracious hosts at Straitview Ridge Bed and Breakfast. We felt truly welcomed, despite arriving without a reservation and the beds were comfortable with a delicious breakfast following a restful night's sleep. We hope to return again soon!

We stayed here for a girl's weekend in the Sunset Room and it was absolutely perfect. Spacious room with everything we needed. Bill had great recommendations for restaurants, daily hikes, etc. Breakfasts were lovely; we felt like royalty. Would definitely stay here again!

We have been very welcomed by Janine and Bill. They are very friendly hosts and very obliging. They offered us such a good breakfast which has given us a perfekt start for the next day.

We found Straightview Ridge by chance as we explored just beyond familiar Sooke. The home sits atop a high ridge, up a long private driveway from the road, with spectacular views of the ocean and Olympic mountains. Bird feeders bring a wonderful array of birds up close over breakfast, which is a sumptuous feast that offers several options. We walked...

It was a pleasure , Bill and Eva, to receive your review of your recent stay. We appreciated the fact that you are very much into birding and took every opportunity to engage with our multitude of local species on our property and explore surrounding areas. Have a nice summer and hope you will visit again.
