Reviewed 7 August 2016

Beautiful view of water. I enjoyed a long walk on the private beach and the friendly and welcoming owners. They were knowledgeable about the area and gave helpful tips about things to do and places to eat. Very relaxing, very clean, and I hope I'll get a chance to stay there again.

Thank you for staying with us and for taking the time to let other folks know about Ocean Wilderness Inn and our wonderful beach. While French Beach, China Beach, Mystic Beach and the others are very close to us and wonderful places to visit, ours is a very private beach with limited public access making it very tranquil. Thanks again...

A very special place run by very special people! We loved our early morning walk to the beach and sun downer with the bald eagles in the garden. Brilliant place to unwind and to visit places in the area.

Thank you for your kind remarks about Ocean Wilderness Inn. Our beach really is the most lonely place on the Island. And the eagles were only here to see you! We hope you can take the time to unwind with us again very soon. Safe travels Rick and Karen

We stayed in the Pirate's Cove room, which had a spectacular view. I could have sat there all day just watching the view. However, we were there for a wedding (not at this location) and we found the drive to and from Sooke to be quick, pleasant, and hassle-free compared to our frenzied pace at home in southern CA.

Thank you for making us "Fantastic". We always love it when our guests have the opportunity to enjoy the hot tub on the cliff. And exploring the beaches like French Beach, China Beach and Jordan River make for a relaxing and exciting way to visit our little paradise in Canada. Please visit us again soon.

If you are looking for a gorgeous quiet retreat this is the place. The hosts could not be more welcoming, friendly, and helpful. The ocean views (especially from our second floor room) were spectacular. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious. Beyond that, the location is close enough to Sooke (or Victoria for that matter) that day trips for this or that...

Me and my boyfriend stayed at Ocean Wilderness Inn for our first time and I had never been to the island before, what a beautiful place we discovered.

No breakfast even the owner was there, and the owners seemed a bit arrogant. The room was very nice though. Also the garden facilities were beautiful but the trail to the ocean was overgrown and unsafe to use.

We booked a room for the Easter weekend and were pleasantly surprised at the willingness of the hosts to book us a one night stay, as we were kind of "last minute" for this area and the holiday weekend.

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.

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
