                          About: Deidre and David are happy residents of Victoria, BC located on Southern Vancouver Island. They are so happy with it they decided to do a Victoria Vacation Rental so others could come and enjoy this fabulous city. Deidre has a background in the travel industry so can help you with all the logistics of getting to and from Victoria. As Deidre was born and raised in Victoria she also has a pretty good knowledge about Victoria and the surrounding area!!

                          Why Victoria:
                          We really like this property as it is one of four townhouses in a condominium complex. It is such a great vacation rental as it has it's own entrance so you have complete privacy, yet so much outide room to take advantage of, like a stroll to the front of the building which sits on the Gorge Waterway. A 15 min walk will take you to the Selkirk Waterway terminal to catch the harbour ferry, rent a kayak or just sit around drinking coffee and having lunch in one of the many retuarants. The property is located on Gorge Road in Victoria which is very close to downtown, yet has easy access to many of the local attractions that are outside downtown Victoria such as Butchart Gardens, the Butterfly Gardends, etc.
