This bijou, self-catering vacation studio is for the discerning traveler who values complete privacy, independence, cozy comfort and the convenience of being ideally situated while exploring the exquisite south-west coastline of Vancouver Island, which features old growth forests and some of the tallest trees in the world.
Skipping Town Studio is a self-contained, ground floor unit (200 sq ft) with its own entrance & parking, full bathroom and outdoor relaxation area – where you can delight in watching the deer as they cross over and amble past the seasonal stream which runs alongside the property, and be serenaded by the evening frog concerto.
The studio comes with a hotel-quality Queen bed, snack prep area which comes equipped with a microwave, bar fridge, coffee maker, tea kettle, dishware and picnic basket, and a wall-mounted Smart TV, Netflix and high-speed Internet.
Conveniently located on the Pacific Marine Circle Route in Sooke’s prestigious Whiffin Spit neighbourhood, Skipping Town Studio is just steps to
West Coast Grill;
The Vault Sports Bar;
Le Sooke Spa;
West Coast Outdoor Adventure (for bike, kayak and paddleboard rentals); and
bus route 61 for easy access to Adrenalines, the Galloping Goose Trail and Victoria.
At the bottom of the road, you will find world renowned Sooke Harbour House and Whiffin Spit Beach - a naturally formed spit which, to one side showcases the calm, protected Sooke Basin and to the other side, boasts the vibrant, open waters of the Juan de Fuca Strait.
A leisurely 30-minute stroll takes you to the lighthouse where you can soak up the scenery, watch the mesmerizing breakwater and observe the bald-headed eagles, otters and seals at play.
Wooden benches situated along the path offer the perfect opportunity to sit back, relax and take-in the natural beauty of the coastline overlooking the magnificent snow-capped Olympic Mountains.
The Visitor’s Centre & Regional Museum is located just on the other side of town.+ More
