Modern Cottage on Stunning Oceanfront Acreage with two beaches and forest trails

Family fun at the shore
The Rowan Cottage is situated on a spot that takes full advantage of the West Coast beauty. It is part of a park-like six-acre oceanfront property known as the Seaward Estate. Historically, Seaward was one of five salmon trap sites along Juan de Fuca Strait until the 1950s.

Seaward provides many beautiful natural landscapes, including two beaches (with thousands of feet of picturesque coastline), west coast forest, and wood trails. It remains one of the best oceanfront properties in the Greater Victoria Region. Since real estate value has consistently increased in the last two decades, many good oceanfront properties have been subdivided into small lots and redeveloped. A large original oceanfront property, such as the Seaward, which has preserved all its natural beauty and historical value, is truly rare to find.

The Rowan Cottage is located directly on the oceanfront. It consists of 1356 square feet of space. Extensively remodelled in 2018, the main level of the cottage features an open concept kitchen, dining, and study areas. There are two bedrooms, one has a King-size bed and another one has a queen-size bed. There is a bathroom on this level as well. The living room is down 6 steps to the garden level with easy access through a sliding door to the patio. All rooms have huge windows that overlook the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the Olympic mountains. The ever-changing sunlight from dawn to dusk is amazing. The patio provides an outdoor seating area, a dining table, and a BBQ. Through the sliding door in the king bedroom, guests can easily access the highest ground of the property. It offers the widest view swiping from the East Beach to the West Beach. Sitting down in one of the chairs, watching the sunrise and sunset, wildlife, and fishing boats passing by is truly spectacular.…

There is a beach house on East Beach for children to play, as well as for adults to relax. Of course, guests love to spend time on the beaches. The East Beach has a flatter pebble surface for walking, and the West Beach has more giant rocks, small coves, and secret hiding spots for adventure. Many guests find those forest trails are fun to discover. Guests like to sit on the benches at the end of Sunset trail and Otter trail to read a book, to watch wildlife, or to enjoy the sunset. Many others love to have a picnic with a cup of wine on the picnic deck at the end of the Orca trail.

For people who need to be connected, the cottage provides free Wi-Fi. A 50" smart TV offers cable channels, Netflix, YouTube, and many other programs. On a chilled night, there is a wood stove for warmth and cozy. If you are lucky during a dark and clear night, you may enjoy the beautiful sky over the Juan de Fuca Strait with abundant stars in the Milky-way.

The Seaward Estate consists of Rose Cottage (Vrbo 1333347), Rowan Cottage (Vrbo 1340568), and Creekside Cottage (Vrbo 2229506). The Rowan Cottage is about 200 feet away from Rose Cottage and about 50 feet away from Creekside Cottage. All cottages' windows are facing the ocean. There are no windows directly facing each other in order to provide guests with privacy.
Guest accommodation at this cottage offers coffee/tea makers and a hairdryer. Rooms open to patios. This accommodation is furnished with dining tables and kitchen islands. Kitchens offer fridges, hobs, microwaves and kitchenware and utensils. Bathrooms include a combined bath/shower unit.

5/5 Excellent

A very lovely property. A fantastic property manager. Another very relaxing stay.

5/5 Excellent

Everything was excellent
The property with a beach right there was beautiful and the interior was lovely. Nice views from the patio and out the big windows when inside. Very clean with comfortable beds, nice décor, and well appointed kitchen (even a blender). Some good local walks and hikes to do nearby. Property was quiet with no road noises. The manager checked in with us enough to know we had everything we needed, but otherwise we had our privacy. Check-in was a breeze. Would definitely return next year!

5/5 Excellent

What a find
i'm reluctant to say too many good things about this property because we'd like it to be available for our own future use. Perhaps the best thing we could say is that we have already booked a second visit. While a little farther outside of Sooke than we originally thought, you cannot find a better unobstructed view, with grounds to walk on and a short set of stairs to the beach. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

5/5 Excellent

Fantastic, especially the location and view
We hope we’ll be back!

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful Ocean Front Cottage
Wow! What a great property. Private and beautiful. This is a spot I would recommend to friends and family and other VRBO users. The views were great!! If you're looking for a romantic getaway or a family get together this property is for you. Ray the caretaker is an amazing man and a local fixture. He took good care of any questions and suggested some awesome local cafes and sites. View from the master bedroom were awesome!
