About the Property
The main house:
The main building at Moonlit Cove – Christine and Jack’s home – is a sun-drenched, open style west coast home in soft pastels and wood trim. The large dining area looks south over a wide patio dotted with flowers and potted plants, with the inlet glistening below. An Arbutus tree, native to this small corner of the world, provides shade from the morning sun and a perch for the many species of birds that live here. Below, accessible by path, is a tranquil pond that invites contemplation. Below that, winding along the waterfront, is the “Galloping Goose Trail”, part of a network of pedestrian and bicycle-friendly paths that criss-cross the lower end of Vancouver Island and provide an alternate way to walk to the nearby town of Sooke (rhymes with "spook".)
In the main house there is a large one bedroom suite complete with fireplace, which can be used as an executive meeting place, group get togethers or retreats.
