Perched high on a ridge in a quiet cul-de-sac 25 minutes from Victoria and Sooke, and encompassed by raw natural beauty with a breathtaking 180-degree backdrop of unobstructed Lookout Lake and mountain views. Embrace the seclusion and serenity of the beautiful park-like gardens that surround this landmark.

The space
We have a suite available with a private living room, bedroom and private balcony with swing, gravity chairs, BBQ and your own private entrance, a kitchenette and private bathroom with shower. The kitchenette includes our own freshly roasted and ground coffee, microwave popcorn, assorted snacks, and bottled water.

The front yard has a secluded glade surrounded by Arbutus and pine trees and beautifully lit in the evenings. Guests are welcome to use the BBQ facilities and relax around the fire pit. The gardens are lit beautifully at night and an illuminated path leads to your suite.

The location is conveniently close to amenities, Lookout Lake Park, Olympic View Golf course, hiking, Galloping Goose Trail, and minutes from the ocean with off-leash beaches. Ask us about dog parks, beaches, hiking trails, and local sights to see.

No one under 24 please.

We are dog-friendly and can accommodate small to mid-sized males and any sizes of females. (Sorry, we cannot accommodate large breed or unneutered males, or pit bull/pit mixes due to incompatibility with our Pyrenees.). Please note that dogs can’t be left alone in the suite for extended periods of time (2-3 hours maximum please).

Where you’ll be

Victoria, British Columbia, Canada

We're 25 minutes from Victoria and 20 minutes from Sooke, on the boundary between suburbia and the raw natural beauty of Vancouver Island.

It's a perfect location for those looking to explore the southern most tip or the furthest west coast of Canada, the rugged unspoiled nature of the island, or the many beaches only 5-10 minutes away.

Below the property is Lookout Lake Park, a small lake frequented by local fishing enthusiasts and families and accessible via a public set of steps nearby. Lookout Lake dam was recently upgraded by the local council and the shore sports a fresh new look.

All this while being only 25 minutes from the city of Victoria and short ferry rides to the many nearby Canadian and American islands.

During your stay

We're as hands-off as you'd like but also around most of the time if you feel like catching up, learning about our home, getting help with exploring the local neighbourhood, or just want to meet well-travelled people!
We always bring our dogs out to greet you upon first arrival so that they get to meet and know you. Tiko, our polar bear, is a Great Pyrenees, a breed dedicated to watching over his flock - which includes our guests - protecting us from unwanted eagles and Turkey vultures flying overhead in the afternoon, squirrels, and leaves moving or falling without his permission.
