Madrona Cottage is a private Sooke vacation rental cottage on Vancouver Island, on British Columbia's coast. Offering spectacular ocean views, this waterfront cottage is located on a tranquil park-like property in a quiet rural area just 20 minutes drive from town and 40 minutes from Victoria. It offers vacationers the convenience of town amenities yet the peaceful quiet of a Sooke cottage.
Madrona Cottage is set along the Sooke Basin and is a wonderful location for nature lovers. Low tide brings a fascinating array of sea life, while many varieties of bird species can be seen at any time of day. Watch for eagles perched on the treetops of the little island in front of the cottage. Look for the groups of round little quail running about the rocks near the garden. Listen for the splash - and you may see the wonder of seal fishing near the island! Or, if you're very quiet and still, once dark has fallen you may be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the resident otter playing in the water. This Sooke cottage offers an excellent vantage point for wildlife viewing.
Superb hiking, walking, and cycling trails also surrounding the area. East Sooke is well-known for its beautiful natural areas including the East Sooke Regional Park and the Galloping Goose Trail System. Trails range from easy strolls along wide, well-maintained paths, to challenging hikes to incredible viewpoints.
The cottage itself is a comfortable vacation rental nestled amongst trees. It is equipped for your comfort and features large windows that showcase the views. You will find it hard to leave this little piece of paradise!
