Bright and airy studio guesthouse located 12kms from Sooke town centre in a peaceful rural setting. Only a few minutes drive from Gordon’s beach where you can take in spectacular sunsets and often spot the seals and sea lions enjoying themselves in the kelp beds.
“This place was beyond my expectations. It is defiantly the best air bnb I’ve stayed at yet. Very cute, clean and had everything we needed and more. Hosts were very kind and replied to any questions in a timely manner. Was the Perfect weekend get away and I hope to return to this little gem sometime again in the future!”
The Tree House Our Tree House has everything you need to enjoy your stay in this rugged part of the country. With views of the Juan de Fuca Straight and French Beach there are many trails nearby to hike and beaches like French Beach, Flea Beach, China Beach to explore. At night watch the sunset from the private “perch” in French beach, just a 2 minute walk away. The Space The Tree House borders French Beach Park and is about 100 feet away from the main house. It has one queen size bed, so it will accommodate two people but we have had guests with one child sleeping in a Pack and Play or on the chesterfield.There is a hot tub beside the main house which one may use. Access There is no bus service to Shirley so a car is a necessity. Be sure to buy your groceries and gas in Sooke as there are no gas stations or grocery stores beyond Sooke until Port Renfrew. Shirley has no cell phone coverage and wifi may be spotty at times.Be sure to have our house number and directions to our place with you. The Neighbourhood There are three restaurants within a 10 minute drive from the Tree House: Shirley Delicious, with yummy all day breakfasts, soups, wraps ,coffee and muffins,pp88 Stoked Pizza which is just 3 minutes away and Point No Point with its fine dining and beautiful Ocean view. There is a trail from the bottom of our driveway into French Beach Park which goes through the forest to the beach. At the Tree House there is a short trail into French Beach Park to the “Perch” where two chairs and a fire pit are waiting for you. Your hosts, Dale and Ineke Dale and I have lived in Shirley for close to three years after we decided to fully retire. We were attracted to this area because of its beauty and its magnificent view of the Straight. We love watching the whales and sea lions go by, observe the nesting eagles and the fabulous sunsets over the water. We will be here when you need us but we will also respect your privacy
“Ineke and Dale were wonderful hosts. Ineke me as soon as I arrived. Lovely and warm and welcoming. On the morning I was leaving I ran into Dale and had a lovely chat about the property and his workshop. The outlook is a stunning sand covered rockledge over the ocean. So peaceful and relaxing. I could have stayed for days. The driveway was tricky to navigate on my motorcycle. If you’re cycling, note that it is steep gravel. All in, a lovely little spot. I highly recommend it.”

“A bottle of wine waiting for us upon arrival. A hot full bath. Excellent water pressure in the shower. Private lawn with a fire pit. Gorgeous view. Lots of wild life. The birds are beautiful! An owl hooting all day. Along a little river right by the ocean. Straight if Juan De Fuca a short walk from the house. Recommend taking a walk to the co-op- they have all different kinds of tea and spices for excellent prices. Tiny tin house had everything we needed. Pull out bed was actually decent to sleep on compared to many bnb’s. Nice and clean. Well thought of. Ryan and Jennifer have great communication and want to make sure you are enjoying your stay. Highly, highly recommend!!!”
