Inspired by the art and traditions
of the First Nations people who have lived on the west coast of British Columbia for centuries, A'li-Tenew vacation home reflects their affinity for nature in both its design and location. The three bedroom, two bathroom home is a modern day version of the west coast long house built by the Salish people in the 19th and early 20th centuries.
A'li-Tenew Vacation Home
Situated one kilometer west of Sooke on 1½ acres of unspoiled woodlands with a view of the Juan de Fuca Strait and the Olympic Mountains, this vacation rental property offers a unique opportunity to relax and rejuvenate oneself in a very special place.
Open Living Room with Copper Faced Fireplace and Book Collection A'li-Tenew is constructed of cedar and fir and its cathedral ceilings are complemented by pine furniture and colorful rugs. An eclectic collection of local artwork, including sculptures, paintings, photographs, prints, and wood carvings, is displayed throughout the lodging.
The focal point of the house is the open living room/dining room area with its copper-faced fireplace and large book collection. A'li-Tenew's restful atmosphere allows guests individual space to read, listen to music, or watch movies. Two outdoor decks and secluded lawns are ideal for enjoying good company or reading in a sylvan setting.
The fully equipped kitchen offers generous counter space and a pass-through to the dining room. The large selection of cookware and interesting cookbooks reflects the owners' love of entertaining friends and serving good food. The spacious garage adjoining the front hall is convenient  for guests unloading luggage and supplies into the house. Dining Room with Pass-through to Full Kitchen
A five-minute walk from the house brings you to a semi-private pebble beach on Sooke Bay, where one can wander along the shore with its bleached driftwood and adjacent kelp beds.
Master Bedroom with Private Deck A'li-Tenew vacation home is available for rent year-round and has been designed and appointed for adults only. The three bedrooms, accommodating a maximum of six people, are furnished with queen-sized beds and pillow-soft mattresses. A utility room with washer and dryer is also available for guests' use.
A'li-Tenew is the perfect location from which to explore and hike the area's many parks and trails, view the abundant wildlife and natural foliage, kayak along the shoreline, whale watch, or fish the ocean and numerous rivers.
