An en suite in a 2.5 acre 500' ocean frontage estate (30-40 minutes from the airport/ferry terminals). The 'Galloping Goose Trail' bisects the estate. There is a bus stop to/from Victoria or Sooke in front, a great old English style pub is a 10 minute walk away. The en suite has a queen-size bed, flat screen TV, private balcony overlooking the water, a propane fireplace, and electric heat. An outdoor hot tub is just steps away and a chef's kitchen is available for breakfast or snacks. The home is uniquely situated on an ocean cove within a bay that leads to the Straits of Juan de Fucca, just 20 miles from Port Angeles in Washington State. For those who enjoy hiking, walking, bicycling, in-line skating, or horseback riding, the 'Galloping Goose Trail' is ideal, a park that extends 55 km ...An en suite in a 2.5 acre 500' ocean frontage estate (30-40 minutes from the airport/ferry terminals).

For those who enjoy hiking, walking, bicycling, in-line skating, or horseback riding, the 'Galloping Goose Trail' is ideal, a park that extends 55 km from downtown Victoria, West to the Sooke Potholes Provincial Park (Google both the Trail and Park). We are five minutes away from a regional park that contains multiple trails, incredible scenery, and beaches, incidentally, for swimmers, the summer water temperature is among the warmest of waters in BC and one can swim off the property. The kitchen is a chef's kitchen, with an extensive gas grill as well as electric elements, 2 ovens, 2 dishwashers, large fridge and freezer. Ingredients for breakfasts as well as snacks (i.e., soups, salads, fruit, etc.) are furnished for your enjoyment; most importantly, feel free to help yourself in the fridge. In the evenings, cocktails, for those so inclined, are provided. This area is a superb destination for fishermen. For golfers, there are a number of amazing courses to choose from including is a magnificent Jack Nicholson golf course, 15 minutes away, that has spectacular views overlooking both the City of Victoria and Sooke. The famous Butchart Gardens (on the Web) would make an excellent day trip (38 minutes by car). Shawn, my wife, and I (John) look forward to making your visit both most enjoyable and a lifetime memory. More

About the neighbourhood
Greater Victoria has been ranked the #1 city in North America for Quality of Life. Sooke is the Westernmost community comprising Greater Victoria. Guests may enjoy renting paddle boards and kayaks from the Stickleback, less than a 5 minute walk West down the Trail, which also features healthy and delicious meals (open for lunch and dinner). The 17-mile pub, a mile East down the highway, offers tasty pub food, prime rib on Saturday evening, and live entertainment on the weekend. Both restaurants provide outdoor dining and the 17 Mile has a number of lawn games as well as a pool table outside. There are many beaches, hiking/walking trails, and parks in the area. Beaches would include Ella Beach, Muir Creek Beach, French Beach, Sandcut Bea
Getting around
Our property is located directly at the 2 bus stops (to and from Victoria, Bus #61) making it desirable for those without a car. From the Victoria Government & Superior #61 Bus Stop it is a 50-minute ride to our home (Stop ID: 102093). We are directly across the street from the bus stop (home has a grey front). See bctransit for details. For those wishing to travel into Sooke the bus ride is 14 minutes, about 8 kilometers to Townsend, the center of the shopping center. In addition to the 17 Mile Pub and Stickleback West Coast Eatery (both close to the home), the town of Sooke has some excellent dining choices (A&W, Chinese, Hara Sushi (Japanese),
