Bright and airy studio guesthouse located 12kms from Sooke town centre in a peaceful rural setting. Only a few minutes drive from Gordon’s beach where you can take in spectacular sunsets and often spot the seals and sea lions enjoying themselves in the kelp beds.
This space is at the intersection of luxury and wilderness. Inside is a large kitchen, leather furniture, writing desk, TV, wifi, great views, and plenty of amenities. Outside is a 1/4 mile of ocean beach and river beach. Sekiu is the fishing mecca of the northwest. This is the gateway to the Ho Rain Forest, Neah Bay, Cape Flattery, Lake Ozette. An abundance of kayaking, hiking, fishing, hunting and biking is conveniently nearby. This is a great base camp, or a relaxing destination.
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
“Ineke, que felizmente nos recebeu na chegada, foi gentil e meticuloso, ajudando-nos a preparar a nossa estadia. Ela acrescentou toques surpreendentes ao espaço que nos fez sentir bem-vindos e ficou claro para ela que ela tem muito orgulho em hospedar. Durante a nossa estadia, houve uma tempestade que achamos absolutamente linda, e pudemos aproveitá-la porque Dale e Ineke equiparam a propriedade com os recursos adequados. Sem o pensamento e o cuidado futuros, talvez não tivéssemos sido capazes de nos divertir sem esforço e relaxar da mesma maneira. As vistas da propriedade são de tirar o fôlego a partir da casa na árvore, mirante e banheira de hidromassagem. Não podemos dizer grandes coisas suficientes sobre esse host e espaço - você apenas precisará experimentá-lo!”
