Local Getaway: Stay Amongst the Trees in Sooke

We uncover the most picturesque and unique Airbnb stays beautiful British Columbia has to offer

Location: Sooke, British Columbia

The details: $360 per night (two-night minimum stay) plus fees; sleeps four

The amenities: Hidden in a grove of trees, this property is a breath of fresh air from the hustle and bustle of the city. This cabin is one of two private suites custom made to offer the best of nature as well as all of your modern conveniences. The cool-coloured walls and warm wooden accents throughout the space create a lovely contrast, while the wicker light fixture provides a vacation vibe. Take advantage of the floor-to-ceiling windows and enjoy your breakfast with a view of the sparkling ocean, or take a dip in the outdoor hot tub just steps away from the unit. Admire the starry sky using the telescope provided, or spend a night cozied up by the fireplace with your loved ones.

Activities in the area: Since this home is meant to be an escape from the city, there aren’t many restaurants or shops in the vicinity. But urban dwellers, fret not: there are plenty of top-rated outdoor spots nearby, such as Otter Point Park, Elrose Park and Ella Beach. You can also spend an afternoon hiking in the forest right next to the unit or take a morning stroll along the beach with private access from the cabin.
