“Great location for exploring the Sooke area”

people found this review helpful

My husband and I stayed in the Log Suite for the month of February and thoroughly enjoyed our vacation. Ruma is a generous and friendly host, but also allowed us lots of privacy. The suite had everything we needed, was bright and clean, and within walking distance to grocery stores, restaurants, and the harbour boardwalk. The loft bedroom is not easily accessible to seniors, but the Murphy bed was very easy to use and comfortable to sleep on. Sooke is a welcoming community and we made full use of the recreation centre, walking trails, nearby beaches, and museum/info centre.

“Excellent rental and warm welcome”
Reviewed 17 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Ruma is a very kind host that made us feel at home! The apartment is very nice, clean and well maintained. Our children enjoyed the cosy beds upstairs under the roof and loved to watch the deers in the garden. The place is nice for different trips around the area. We enjoyed mostly the French Beach and the Sooke Potholes - don't miss it, it's a unique experience.
We will come again and spend more days at this nice place. Very recommendable!

we booked for one night stay and after a few minutes of our arrival, we were wishing we were staying longer. This is a cute clean and peaceful accomodation near to all amenities and a lovely boardwalk to stroll along by the sea at night. Ruma was an amazing host and we felt immediatly welcome into her home and beautifully kept gardens full of flowers. She provided everything we needed with an open heart. If your searching for a place that is quiet and calm, and encourages comfort and a good night s sleep look no further and book it up. we will certainly be back !

“Sweeping views and a feeling of calm”
Reviewed 7 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

The other views are true. The owner Ruma will make you feel at home and you have great views of Sooke Harbour on a quiet street. Another positive of the place is with the decor and setup it is very pet-friendly - so yes you can bring Fido or Fluffy with you and they will be very comfy. The suite has a nice main floor with fold-out Murphy bed and a nice small loft bedroom great for kids or mobile adults. The cabin is located close to the boardwalk pier and only a few minutes walk to all of the stores/restaurants in town. Deer frequent the yard and wildlife is abundant. The hummingbird feeder in front of the giant bay window was a real bonus and kept our furry friends entertained all day. If you are looking for a great place to relax and unwind and be close to everything this is it.

My husband and I and another couple shared the suite. Ruma is extremely helpful and friendly - we were welcomed with a bowl of fruit, some snacks, and a bouquet of dahlias from her beautiful flower garden. Suite was very clean and well-appointed. The sleeping loft is only half-height, and requires a steep ladder-like staircase - but it worked fine for us. The murphy bed also was fine. There's an interesting over-the-sea boardwalk just a couple of blocks away. We ate at "Mom's Cafe", also just a few blocks away, and excellent. We would stay here again next time we come to Sooke.
