We stayed in the Port Cottage for a week, great place, nice and quiet, great view of the ocean, lots of ships to watch. Inside the cottage is very clean and set up very well with a little kitchen and large windows to look out while taking it easy on the couch. The property sits well above the shore line,...

Thank you for your lovely review. You are just the type of guests we love! So appreciative of the area and the cottage. Yes, the stairs are a chore but take your time and enjoy the quiet rain forest... thanks and hope you can come again!

I agree with dragonflydreams. Those of us that have discovered Orveas Bay want to keep it all to ourselves. We were fortunate enough to spend 7 wonderful days in the Starboard Cottage this September. The cottage itself was so charming and cozy - and absolutely spotless. A beautiful view overlooking the Strait of Juan de Fuca. We absolutely loved the...

Thank you Sandra... just a lovely review... so good to have guests who visit in the fall months.. after some rainy days after the months of no rain, everything once again becomes green and lush.

I almost hesitate to write this review (as I want it all to myself!!) . . . we had two blissful days in the Port Cottage with all its amenities (personal hot tub, BBQ and workable kitchen, gas fireplace, comfy bed with ocean views, & never ending natural beauty) . . . a fabulous place to unwind and "unplug" (no...

Thank you for your terrific review! Really great to hear from our guests who come to experience Canada's beautiful west coast ..

Travelling on the main road, Orveas Bay Resort is not easy to find for the first time visitor as there is no signage whatsoever. Turning off following the instructions we had received and driving down a narrow little road, we found an entrance which left us wondering what to expect inside. What a treat lay in store. We were directed...

Thank you for the great review! To respect our guests privacy we decided 15 years ago when we opened that we would not have road signs. We email all of our guests with some information about our place and remind them to please print the map and directions and we hope the guests are not too distracted watching the world...

This accommodation is a real gem. Hidden away outside of Sooke, you really feel like you are away from it all. We stayed in the Starboard cottage for 2 nights. The view is simply fantastic. The cottage has everything you need to be able to cook (i.e. plates, utensils etc) as well as great extras such as the basics (herbs,...

The accommodations are unique and clean. While there is limited access to WIFI, no cable/satellite, and no cell coverage; we couldn’t ask for a better place to relax. There are times when you need to disconnect from the world and recharge. Orveas Bay Resort is great base for day tripping or just enjoying this expansive property. Our whole family left...

Thanks for your great review... it is very much appreciated... we have now completed the stairway to the beach , so much easier access than our old winding path!

The First Mates cabin is an attached suite with bedrooms upstairs and down. The adjacent suite can be accessed via an interior door, if you have a large and familiar group and want to share the two spaces. The suite was a mix of rustic Victorian style and nautical themes.
