About Shelley Medjuck

We live in Victoria and love to get away to our cottage in just 35 minutes we feel like we're hundreds of miles away from it all.

Shelley Medjuck purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Shelley Medjuck chose Sooke

My husband and I purchased this property because you just can't have a house any closer to the water!

Jeff was raised in Sooke so knows the area very well he said this place has it all Fly fishing at your doorstep salmon fishing minutes away and the town of Sooke 2 minutes away.

I love the peace and quiet, watching the wildlife, sipping wine in the hot tub, reading by the fire or entertaining friends with fresh crab caught right next to our float ... heaven.

What makes this cottage unique

Bright airy and open main living area - plus loft

Private little beach deck

Sandy area with fire pit

Views everywhere lots of windows and doors that open

to eight feet wide to create a feeling of bringing nature in

Waters edge steps away

The property was beautiful - ocean views, bright with natural light and completely charming.

  • 5 of 5

Our experience was excellent from start to finish. The owners responded to my initial inquiry in only a few hours and everything I needed to know to about our stay was readily available. Upon arrival the home was very clean and looked exactly as pictured online. The kitchen is very well appointed, wirh a huge variety of cooking appliances and utensils. Beautiful water views out the kitchen made cooking so enjoyable.

All the beds were very comfortable and there were enough different types of pillows that everyone was able to find ones they liked.

We travelled with our 16 month old toddler and she had such a great time! The space was very kid friendly and she loved exploring all of the outdoor spaces. The best part was that we were able to relax and indulge in the evenings after she was asleep. It is difficult to plan a kid friendly holiday that is actually a pleasurable adult vacation too. Amazingly, this cottage managed to do just that!

We loved our time here and can't wait to return.

Sea Wash Cottage is a Dream Cottage by the Sea - live it, love it !!

  • 5 of 5

Agreeing with all the many comments describing the idyllic location along with the constantly changing scenery & wildlife and that Shelly is a split second away to help if you need her but allowing you the freedom to enjoy it all, we wanted to offer our review of this beautiful cottage slightly differently.

Sea Wash Cottage is simply “beautiful” in (what feels like) a real “hideaway” with your own drive (so you feel very, very safe). Everything about Sea Wash Cottage breathes quality & luxury from the garden to the cooker. We’ve stayed in many holiday rentals now and by far this cottage sits right at the top - from superb kitchen equipment (plenty of excellent utensils/crockery/glasses and an amazing cooker) to the bathroom with the luxury shower to the deep rich wooden floors throughout to the hot tub outside in a perfectly maintained “cottage garden” containing flowers & shrubs but most importantly - herbs you can cook with. The standard of Sea Wash Cottage (the exterior/interior) has been tastefully designed & so well executed from colour schemes to furniture & decor - mixing the quality of the past with the conveniences of the present. Sea Wash Cottage is the “dream cottage by the sea” that all the films & books have got us believing in - only you really can live it by renting here……..I am certain our rich & wonderful memories of Sooke & Vancouver Island were enhanced by the sheer enjoyment of living in Sea Wash Cottage.

Beauty and Comfort Sea-side

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The owners have made the house welcoming and comfortable. Views from inside, and outside were incredible. We highly recommend Sea Wash Cottage. It is convenient to groceries, while in a smaller, quiet location.

Owner's Response: We are thrilled you found the cottage comfortable and welcoming! We also love being so close to town, and still have the feeling of being removed from it all, the perfect balance! Come back soon!

First rate, five star accommodations on a beautiful scenic road close to beaches and hiking trails

  • 5 of 5

Shelley has created a luxurious paradise and has anticipated every need of the traveller, from plush white terry cloth bath robes to heated bathroom floors. The house itself is beautifully designed and decorated and has a wonderful serene and happy vibe. Don’t worry about rain, as the house is so bright and cosy and so well outfitted with a hotfoot tub outdoors, a wood burning fireplace indoors, a Victorian claw foot tub in the master bedroom, a cosy window seat with a stunning view, a large collection of children’s games and a t.v., that you will savour the time spent indoors. The kitchen, while small, is the best outfitted one I have seen in my many vacation rentals around the world. Thank you, Shelley, for opening your beautiful vacation home to us. We are already planning our next visit.

Keep it a Secret .. so we can go back!

  • 5 of 5

We immediately fell in love with Sea Wash cottage. All our expectations were met and more. This is the perfect place to get away to and recharge. Catching our own crab right in front of the house was such a treat and the cottage is so comfortable and relaxing to stay in that we were always as excited to return from excursions as we were to go on the excursions themselves.

The cottage is very well stocked and all our needs were easily met while there. The beds are very comfortable and the fireplace complete with an unending supply of firewood made our stay there super sweet and cosy.

What especially can't be beat about Sea Wash cottage is it's site and connection with the outdoors. Stunning sunrises greeted us every day complete with crab boats gathering their catch in the wee hours , seals on the float, sea otters, herons, and gaggles of geese and other sea birds . There's a fishing platform, a fire pit, outdoor dining decks, your own private beach directly in front of the cottage , and to top it off a hot tub to enjoy it all from.

Thank you Sea Wash for helping us create family memories that will not be forgotten!
