Guesthouse in Shirley
Ocean Treehouse
The Tree House Our Tree House has everything you need to enjoy your stay in this rugged part of the country. With views of the Juan de Fuca Straight and French Beach there are many trails nearby to hike and beaches like French Beach, Flea Beach, China Beach to explore. At night watch the sunset from the private “perch” in French beach, just a 2 minute walk away. The Space The Tree House borders French Beach Park and is about 100 feet away from the main house. It has one queen size bed, so it will accommodate two people but we have had guests with one child sleeping in a Pack and Play or on the chesterfield.There is a hot tub beside the main house which one may use. Access There is no bus service to Shirley so a car is a necessity. Be sure to buy your groceries and gas in Sooke as there are no gas stations or grocery stores beyond Sooke until Port Renfrew. Shirley has no cell phone coverage and wifi may be spotty at times.Be sure to have our house number and directions to our place with you. The Neighbourhood There are three restaurants within a 10 minute drive from the Tree House: Shirley Delicious, with yummy all day breakfasts, soups, wraps ,coffee and muffins,pp88 Stoked Pizza which is just 3 minutes away and Point No Point with its fine dining and beautiful Ocean view. There is a trail from the bottom of our driveway into French Beach Park which goes through the forest to the beach. At the Tree House there is a short trail into French Beach Park to the “Perch” where two chairs and a fire pit are waiting for you. Your hosts, Dale and Ineke Dale and I have lived in Shirley for close to three years after we decided to fully retire. We were attracted to this area because of its beauty and its magnificent view of the Straight. We love watching the whales and sea lions go by, observe the nesting eagles and the fabulous sunsets over the water. We will be here when you need us but we will also respect your privacy

Your guide to Sooke

All About Sooke

The harborside community of Sooke sits at the southern tip of Vancouver Island. The region benefits from one of the milder climates in western Canada, and its shoreline, rainforest trails, and beautiful views of Washington state’s Olympic Mountains make it a popular destination. Throughout Sooke, you’ll find distinctive shops, art galleries, and restaurants serving comfort food and freshly caught seafood.

The area around Sooke is known for its beaches, and two of the most picturesque are near the neighboring villages of Jordan River and Shirley. Sooke Basin, just west of town, is known for its salmon and halibut fishing, and the harbor is a popular spot for kayakers, who might spy otters and seals in its waters. Sooke is also a draw for mountain bikers flocking to the Galloping Goose Regional Trail. The Sooke Hills Wilderness Trail connects to the Great Trail, formerly the Trans-Canada Trail, a cycling route that links to Victoria.

When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Sooke?

Sooke has a mild Pacific Northwest climate, but humidity can be high at times, particularly between March and April, and the city experiences heavy rainfall and cold temperatures from December to February. The best time to visit may be between June and August, which see plenty of sunshine and only moderate humidity. In July, the Sooke Fine Arts Show features artist demonstrations, talks, and live music. September and October are pleasant times to stay in a Sooke cabin, particularly if you like the warmth but not the summer heat. Any later in the year, you will need a warm jacket and a pair of waterproof boots to explore the outdoor sites and trails.

What are the top things to do in Sooke?

Sooke Potholes Provincial Park

The Sooke River runs through the Sooke Potholes Provincial Park to the north of the village, forming the temporary water formations that give the park its name. During summer, when the largest waterfall in the park is no more than a steady stream over the rocks, the potholes that have formed at its base are a great place to sunbathe on the dry rocks, paddle in the pools, or go for a swim. Upstream you’ll find a couple of sandy beaches — which you won’t be able to access in the winter, as the river covers them. The Galloping Goose Regional Trail also runs through the park.

Sooke Basin

One of the most scenic locations in Sooke is the Sooke Basin, a saltwater inlet to the west of the town center. A range of hills protects the basin on three sides, and you can hike up to Billings Spit or take the Galloping Goose trail around the coast to enjoy panoramic views. Rent a paddleboard or small boat to cruise into the Strait of Juan de Fuca — but watch the tides, which will affect the ease of leaving and re-entering the basin. Anderson Cove, on the southern shore, shelters sailboats from the wind and waves.

Sooke Region Museum & Visitor Centre

The Sooke Region Museum & Visitor Centre features displays and exhibits that trace the town’s history. On its grounds is the Triangle Island Lighthouse, built in 1910 and beautifully restored to its original condition. A 1928 steam locomotive and the 1870 Moss Cottage, the oldest pioneer home in western Victoria, also sit on the property.
