When Can I Check In? Check Out?
Check In: 4:00 p.m. Our Resort office is located in unit 48B and is open 9am to 5pm. If you’re going to check-in after hours, please call the resort in advance for late check-in procedures.
Check-Out: 11:00 a.m. If you require a late check-out, please contact us at 1-250-642-2635 and we will do our best to accommodate you.

Where Can I Park?
All of our vacation rentals have parking for 2 standard-sized vehicles directly in front of each cottage. If you need more space or have an oversized vehicle, please contact us in advance at [email protected]

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.

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.

Do you have pet-friendly suites?
Our Resort offers a couple suites that are designated as pet friendly for $50/pet/stay (up to 3 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.

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. Check out our Local Attractions and Activities pages for more ideas. (Note: Most activities and experiences are about a 30 minute drive from our Resort).
