Enhanced Cleaning Fee:
Due to COVID-19, housekeeping sanitization procedures have changed dramatically and we are committed to meeting or exceeding protocols provided by the BC Centre for Disease Control, WCB and the Provincial Health Authority to keep all of our guests and employees safe. Because of these new procedures, we will be charging a $32/stay+tax enhanced cleaning fee to all guests of our Resort until these protocols are relaxed. For more details on our sanitization procedures, please visit

I’m Traveling From the USA, What Do I Need to Know?
There are several ways to get here, but we recommend taking the Coho Ferry from Port Angeles to downtown Victoria and continuing on to Sooke from there. Blackball has the most frequent sailings, and if you are traveling from Seattle, it generally ends up being the quickest route.

Do you have pet-friendly suites?
Our Resort offers a couple suites that are designated as pet friendly for $50/pet/stay (up to 2 dogs, under 25lbs). Please check out our Pet Friendly Accommodations page for more information.

Should I Bring Groceries?
Yes! If you are planning to visit us at SookePoint, it is definitely recommended to pick up your groceries and supplies beforehand. There is a very small convenience store along the way, about 15 minutes from the Resort, and a larger grocery store about 30 minutes away in the middle of the Village of Sooke.

Can I Smoke?
SookePoint Ocean Cottage Resort is a non-smoking resort and smoking is allowed only in designated areas. A $250.00 charge will be incurred if you are discovered smoking in one of the vacation rental suites.

Do I Need a Car?
We do not recommend travel without a vehicle. SookePoint is in a remote location, set away from any public transportation and is at the end of a very quiet road.

What About Internet Access?
Yes! All of our accommodations have their own wireless internet access.

Will My Suite Have a Balcony?
Most of our rooms at SookePoint offer a small balcony that you can step out onto (Studio Suites excluded). The 2 Bedroom + Den option will have a larger balcony. No outdoor seating is provided.

Is There a Restaurant at the Resort?
There’s no restaurant directly on-site. The closest restaurant is approximately 30 minutes drive from the Resort.

What Can I Do in Sooke?
Lots! You can go whale watching, fishing, mountain biking, hiking, or any number of other amazing outdoor excursions. And let’s not forget our local spas, wine tours, restaurants, and more.
