Reviewed 2 weeks ago for a stay in May 2018

Easy to access, private entrance. Very clean. cozy decor. Nice large bathroom and large circular shower. Has its own temp control in bedroom and bathroom. Very quiet. Bright and relaxing. Close to the Whiffin Spit, Coffee, Micro, and cups in room. Would book again. Great for a couple. Decent closet to hang up things if needed, and a stand to put your suitcase on. Host lives upstairs, she touches base that you are settled in. Overall great stay.

Management response:

Thank you for choosing to stay at Skipping Town Studio. We are so delighted to hear that you enjoyed your visit, and shall very much look forward to welcoming you back when you are next in the area.

About the neighbourhood
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.
