Owner info

About the owner: Bruce and Linda Billings retired to Victoria in 2000 after both having a career with the Edmonton Police Service. They enjoy meeting new people and are dedicated to providing their guests with unparalleled service. Their home is very private and off the street on a 'panhandle' lot so a quiet, residential feel is what they hope their guests will enjoy. With the beach only steps away, they think it's a great place to enjoy all the benefits Victoria has to offer.

Why the Owner Chose Victoria:
Our property in the Gonzales Bay area is very central to Oak Bay, the Cook Street Village & downtown and located on a panhandle lot off the main road.
