Victoria house description
This spacious and open 2700 sq ft, 3-BR, 2-BA architecturally distinctive executive home features 25-foot open beam ceilings, floor to ceiling windows, sauna and hot tub. This Modernist/Tuscan-styled getaway is located in a treed enclave minutes from the ocean and Thetis Lake and 10-15 minutes from downtown Victoria. The home is set on two lots with native Garry Oak and Arbutus stands.
Relax and enjoy the tranquility of this very private setting. The field stone entrance way invites you to stop and marvel at the fountain or sit and enjoy a cocktail on the 1000 sq. ft deck which fronts the home.
The main living room boasts 25-foot open-beamed ceilings, free-standing fireplace and an open design with two oversize wood and glass doors opening to the massive deck. The adjacent dining room area is slightly raised and overlooks the fountain. There are three tastefully decorated bedrooms situated throughout the house with 300 thread count linens. The master bedroom is tucked away at the back of the home with its own completely private deck beside the stream and small pond. The large bedroom windows overlook a serene stand of Garry oak trees and native plants. Perfect for a night of romance or maybe a relaxing candlelight bath in the over sized claw foot tub steps from the thermo fit bed.
The modern kitchen area overlooks the stream and pond and offers a functional balance of beauty and convenience with concrete counters and stainless steel appliances. The kitchen is open and almost entirely comprised of windows. There is also a sliding glass door to the rear deck. The stream and pond attract a great deal of bird life - from hummingbirds to eagles.
The location of this wondrous home is perfect – just minutes from many of Victoria’s famed sites, attractions, restaurants and night life, yet far enough away from the action to enjoy a restful getaway in your home away from home.
The ocean is a five-minute walk and Thetis Lake is five minutes away by car. Thetis Lake offers the best fresh water swimming in Victoria as well as trout and bass fishing. There are also miles of trails for walking, hiking, and picnicking. The home is also five minutes from the Galloping Goose Trail which runs from downtown Victoria to Sooke and is ideal for biking and in-line skating. The Galloping Goose Trail provides convenient bicycle access to downtown Victoria in 15 minutes. For the golfers there are plenty of courses in the vicinity to suit every skill level. Superb shopping near by, world class museum, salmon fishing, whale watching, Butchart Gardens 25 minutes away, casino and kids water park...all close by.
So, what are you waiting for . . . don’t delay in confirming your vacation stay today!
We look forward to welcoming you to our city and home.

This is a hidden gem! This unique and stylish city home is nestled in the trees and is completely private. We had ample room for our party of 8, including a young family and grandparents. Our children loved exploring all the interesting spaces this property has to offer. We never felt crowded; there were so many spaces to enjoy. The home is beautifully decorated and outdoor decks and gardens gorgeous. The location was easy for traveling around the island, was quiet and felt safe. Be sure to enjoy the nearby Thetis Lake and Fisgard Lighthouse. We enjoyed our stay at your home very much!

A very unique place. The place was very tastefully decorated. Feels like a secluded setting, but you are very close to city. I was surprised to see a deer standing outside the back deck. We were kind of rushed, as we were only there a few days to attend daughter's wedding. But everybody loved the place.

We absorbed this wonderful private home for two glorious weeks in June. While ideally situated in Victoria, the property is nevertheless thoroughly private, located in a quiet wooded setting, frequented by deer and a variety of birds. The house is even larger than the impressions obtained from the photos. It is a unique property that grew on us increasingly each day. The home has been expertly decorated and we very much appreciated the artwork on display . Make sure your visit to Thetis Lake (minutes away) is early in your stay. You will want to return to this gem again and again. The house has everthing that you will require and is extremely neat and clean. The hot tub was a great treat at the end of each day! Arrangements for our trip were very easily made and the Owner checked with us a number of times during our stay to ensure that we had everything we needed (we did!). You can’t go wrong staying here during your trip to Victoria.

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying in two of Pat's accommodations this past September and I haven't stopped raving about how great everything was. We spent a quiet week at Inn of the Sea enjoying the peace and relaxation of the ocean. Every morning I woke up to the sounds of the waves, could life get any better! Inn of the Sea is a short distance to Nanaimo... a cute little town with some great attractions. After a week of nothing but relaxation we were ready for an adventure. We packed our stuff up and moved to one of Pat's gorgeous accommodations in Victoria, she gave us a deal because we booked the two locations. I didn't think our trip could get any better but it did... The house was breathtaking! It sits high up on a hill surrounded by trees for privacy and has a hot tub tucked away, we used this everyday. There's also a huge private patio that I spent a ton of time reading and drinking wine... the furnishings, and home itself, are very eclectic with amazing art and just an all around great vibe. Victoria is a great city with so much to offer, we had some of the best meals ever in the city and enjoyed so many fantastic galleries showing local artists work. There was so much to do that I felt we could have stayed longer. We will definitely come back again... to both locations. Thank you so much Pat, you made our vacation that much more special.

Owner response: Thanks Rick, we are so glad you and your family enjoyed your stay. I think the location is definitely one of the great qualities of this home. You are only about 10 minutes from Downtown Victoria, yet when you are at the house you feel away from it all. It is definitely a very eclectic house...for someone who is looking for something a little different it is the perfect place! Hope to have you back again Pat

We were a party of 8 and found the house to be very spacious with all of us there. Very comfortable home with many great features. We too loved the art in the house. The house is in a very private setting with a beautiful landscaping, close to all amenities. We definitely recommend renting this house! Thank you!

Beautiful house, the pictures of the house are great but nothing compared to seeing it in person! Stayed for several days with our family and this house has so much room and such a gorgeous setting. We would stay here again in a heartbeat! Great location to Thetis Lake and the galloping goose trail which is awesome to bike and walk on. Went on many beautiful trails. Owners took care of any concerns we had immediately. Lots of good restaurants close by and close to downtown Victoria. Quiet, peaceful setting and we would definitely recommend this to family and friends.

Loved the stay wonderful house, everything was top notch (great art!!)...so private. Sauna in the morning and hot tub at night..what a way to relax. Enjoyed a gin a tonic in the evening on your wonderful deck watching the humming birds drink from the fountain. Kids (and Bernie our dog )loved Thetis Lake. We'll definitly tell all our friends and will be back next year...hopefully for two weeks. Thanks again Terri
