My son and I travelled here in late July and stayed for two nights. Our first floor room had a view of the ocean. The beds (twins) were comfortable and the room was nicely done. Everything was clean, and the breakfasts were excellent. The innkeepers were helpful and friendly. The location, with a path down to the beach, was wonderful,...

Thank you for the gift of your review. It is very satisfying to hear that you enjoyed your room, the beach and breakfasts. Our location on the main road used to be a benefit for the previous innkeeper (in a pre-internet age). Fortunately, traffic usually quiets down nicely at night. We have been curious why the previous owner selected the...

Just spent 3 wonderful nights at this hideaway.At first I was taken back by my lack of cell phone service at the room but they had wifi so I wasn't completely out of touch After a walk down to the private beach and listening to silence I was thrilled I had no cell service When was the last time I...

Thank you for the gift of this review. I am so pleased that you had a pleasant getaway. Also that you enjoyed your breakfasts. We are on the edge of the wilderness here.

My partner and I stayed here in early May. We booked the place based primarily on the opportunity to stay just one night. Given what we learned on our first trip, the next time we'll be staying longer! Suffice to say that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Beautiful location, great amenities (including a place where we were able to cook...

We stayed at this lovely B&B in August. The hosts were very friendly and accommodating and the trail to the beach was just beautiful. We really didn't expect the beach to open up and be as big as it was. We took a day trip to Botanical Beach and enjoyed the scenery immensely. The breakfast's were well thought out and...

Thank you for the gift of this review. Even though we have little to do with how wonderful the beach is, except for maintaining the trail on our property to get there, we love knowing that our guests enjoyed it. It may be one of the first wilderness beaches on the trip out from Victoria. We were very pleased to...

Nice place; bed and room and bath very nice. Loved the touch of high powered binoculars in the bedroom to be able to look out into the straits and shore of Washington. Breakfasts tasty and a bit offbeat. Nice hike down to the beach. Area is a bit remote, so come here for relaxing. A few nice restaurants in town;...

Thank you, Bob, for the gift of this review. We love hearing that you had a 'peaceful and relaxing' stay: enjoyed the view of the strait; the trail to the shore; your breakfasts; found some nice restaurants (it does take a bit of looking); and good hikes. We continue to look for ways to convey to guests that we are...

We spent a week at this wonderful Inn! The highlight was the delicious breakfasts each morning. I travelled with my mother law and her gluten free diet was accommodated with expertise and a major yum factor. Location was peaceful, and serene with great views. I loved the hot tubs with a view of both wilderness and ocean. Beds were made...

We have been back twice now, the second time as part of an impromptu family trip using 3 different rooms. We arrived early and were allowed to check in without any problems.

My wife and I have returned to Ocean Wilderness Inn three or four times . We have always been made to feel welcome and special by the wonderful owner/ hosts. The fact that the rooms did not have phones or televisions, for us, was a wonderful benefit as it is for those of all ages that love natural surroundings and...

I lived this hotel with my fiance in the winter. It is quite and has nice surroundings. There is a way easily accessing the sea shore. The only inconvenience is that the hotel is a bit far from the cities. The owner is a couple and they are very nice.

Thank you for the gift of this review Winter is a lovely time to visit. I am glad you enjoyed the surroundings and the shore. We are a bit out of town, as you say. We think that our location, about 14km beyond Sooke, may be part of the reason guests are able to unplug and relax. Just for perspective,...

we were quite disappointed with our stay, but we could see how it might be suitable for a different type of traveler.

Thank you for the gift of this review. I regret that you were disappointed with your stay. We agree that we are not for everyone. Our younger guests sometimes tell us “our parents would love this place”. However, and just as often, our older guests buy a gift certificate for their “kids” to come and stay with us. Regardless of...

Oceanfront B and B. Perched above the Salish Sea (Strait of Juan de Fuca) overlooking the Olympic Mountains, between Sooke and Jordan River, this serene, comfortable, seven suite ocean-front bed and breakfast retreat is perfect for your holiday get-away. Located about 60 minutes from Victoria on the Southern coast of Vancouver Island. All rooms have refrigerators, as well as coffee and tea. Our English cottage garden is surrounded by majestic old-growth forest and a lovely brook that runs along our beautiful trail to the beach. Book your room overlooking the ocean or the rain forest.

Lots of fun things to do here, geocaching, hiking, birding, fishing, biking, surfing, seaweed gathering, kayaking, paddle boarding, kite surfing, whale watching, beach combing. Looking for lower key? Then soak in the hot tub, read, gaze at the waves. Or for something completely different do nothing just sit and gaze at the spectacular views! ... more   less
