A beautiful haven, lost in the woods, found by the sea, surrounded by quiet - the WilderGarden Covehouse is a beguiling retreat for those looking for ... something else. Close to parks, on Galloping Goose trail. Walk to pub or bus stop, 12 min to Sooke, 45 min to Victoria, ferry. Sheltered from storms, on a private cove, the Covehouse has a cedar and glass deck, BBQ, dock, hot tub with view and ocean access. Ideal for up to 2 couples, cyclists, paddlers, nature lovers, families, or business.

The space
WilderGarden maintains very high standards of care and hygiene for your health, safety and protection. See below under Other Things for further details.

The Covehouse is a uniquely designed 900+ sq-ft cottage - an octagonal structure with a lodge-pole ceiling, cedar shiplap walls, built around a central wood-fired stove with a 20' tall central chimney - plus a separate studio bedroom with small stove. With a sleeping loft with queen bed, Covehouse holds space for up to four people - ideally two couples, or one couple with children. It has a generous living area and vaulted ceilings that gives it an open, spacious feel. It features WiFi, high-speed fibre Internet, 50" screen with Netflix, iPad with Spotify, a full kitchen with dishwasher and microwave, as well as laundry, expandable dining table, and bathroom with shower. Tall wrap-around windows feature the ocean, hills, cove and trees. Its all-wood and glass construction blends the cottage into the surrounding forest with spectacular views.

For flexibility for up to 4 guests, the Covehouse has sleeping options - a small double bunk room for children, a sleeping palette for younger children in the bedroom studio, and two sofa beds in the main space. The separate studio has a queen teak bed, desk, all-glass art/crafts room, and its dozen windows offers additional space and privacy. A large cedar deck seamlessly connects the inside to the outdoors and beyond.

The main space and loft offers electric baseboard heat as well as the wood stove. The bedroom studio has a wood stove and an electric oil heater. Both queen beds have heating pads for cool nights and cuddle-bed toppers for extra coziness.

Baby gates are available to help with families for stairs to loft and on the deck.

We have fallen in love! With the ocean, the forest, and the Covehouse. The Wildergarden is a daily delight - cormorants, seals, otters, eagles and jays. And we are surprised every day by something new - a grey-blue tail dropper slug, faerie fingers, a gorgeous arbutus tree. We are awed at being hosts and guardians of such an amazing place. And we love creating spaces and places that people want to visit. And stay. The two of us have been producing festivals, garden parties, and art installations for the better part of two decades. And the Wildergarden is now our happy place that we share with our cats and dogs, our children and grandchildren when they visit us, and with you!
