Guests can also access beach front at Jordan River townsite and explore the newly created regional park area encompassing the Jordan River Point.
Jordan River is home to one restaurant: Déjà Vu on the breakers, and guests can also treat themselves to a gourmet meal at the Point no Point Resort Restaurant, or visit our neighbouring community of Shirley's café: Shirley Delicious!
We advise our guests to stock up on groceries in Sooke, the nearest town, before they arrive at our vacation rental as there are no grocery stores in Jordan River. Sooke is also the location of the nearest access to public transit going to Victoria.
Our comfortable and spacious apartment will provide guests with the perfect spot to explore or stay in and relax with an ocean view!
Guests can access the suite, patio and gardens.
Interaction with guests
We generally stop by to say hello to arriving guests, but have a policy of leaving guests their privacy and a chance to enjoy their experience on their own.
Other things to note
There is no cell phone coverage in our area and we do not have highway signage, thus we request that all guests have our street number address as well as the directions handy and accessible without cell phone as they make their way to our paradise. The nearest grocery store is also located in Sooke, 30 minutes away, and we therefore suggest that guests plan their shopping along the way to save on driving back to Sooke once you've reached your lovely destination.
We encourage folks to make the best use of property amenities in guest designated areas.
Quiet times are from 11 pm to 8:00 am.
We are a pet friendly property, but we request that pet owners act responsibly and maintain pets on leash or in designated guest areas.
Laundry facilities are available to guests upon request.
Originally from Quebec, I moved to British Columbia in 2000. Making my way to Nelson, Vancouver and finally Vancouver Island, I met my husband Chris when I first moved to Victoria in 2006. Both outdoors enthusiasts and overall lovers of nature and of the self-sufficient life-style, we bought property in paradise - Jordan River that is - in 2007 and started building our dream home in 2009. Since completing the construction of our home in 2010, we have been renting our suite to long term and then short term renters to share our piece of land and provide cool information about our incredible region.
In the daytime, I'm a project manager and my area of focus is farm and craft enterprises.
My son, Julian Werner, was born in January 2014 and he too is now hooked on our rural lifestyle, eating from the gardens, and the berry bushes found throughout our property!
We look forward to sharing our property and knowledge with you!
