Victoria house description

Rate varies according to length of stay, MONTH and number of guests. Rates posted are for Parkside. Torquay is about 20-25% higher. Please inquire for exact quote. There are two units reflected in the photos you see. Details below about each unit. One located on 4318 Parkside Crescent and the other located on 4458 Torquay Drive. The photos are labeled Parkside and Torquay accordingly.
Both have private entries and in-suite laundry facilities, private patios, BBQ, garden.
The best of both worlds - affordable class in an urban forest retreat! Perfect for couples and families! High end furnishings - the list is endless - every item was carefully selected for its style and durability. You will not easily find units sets up with this high standard for rent - guaranteed to meet or exceed your expectations. You will notice from the reviews that our guests agree with this statement (:^)
Torquay is larger - 1000sqf- with 2 BD and 2 BR..Ideal for large families with more than 4 or for two couples to share! With 2 kitchens (one full and one kitchenette)!

About Parkside:
This spacious downstairs self contained, duplex style unit, offers a peaceful location that’s close to the attractions of beautiful downtown Victoria.

This suite was professionally designed and built with the convenience of couples or small families in mind. It includes a modern kitchen with a ceramic stove and convection oven, full size refrigerator, microwave oven, and dishwasher. A built-in washer and dryer makes the suite a self-contained home. Each bedroom has a very comfortable queen size bed, and the living room includes a DVD player and 32” flat screen TV. There is a comfortable double sofabed in the living room.
From the moment you enter the suite you will notice the many details that contribute to comfort and an up-scale feel. You will appreciate the clean modern lines and the classy, uncluttered style throughout. Your privacy is ensured as the suite has its own entrance. The main attraction for some, however, will be the garden outside the suite that looks onto the back of Mount Douglas Park. The private patio for exclusive use of this unit (Not shared) is a rare find in the heart of most cities – you may take pleasure in a BBQ, enjoy a good book or simply relax in the backyard/garden.
A short walk from the suite will take you to the start of many trails that lead to the top of Mount Douglas, where you can enjoy a 360 degree view of the city. This is a safe residential area, yet very close to city amenities including recreation and fitness centers, golf courses, theatres, shopping, and bus routes. The proximity to the University of Victoria and Camosun College make the suite ideal for those attending courses and conferences.
Upon request, there are items that will make vacations with young children easier such as: high chair/swing; baby tub; baby chair; play mat; stroller; exersaucer; toys.
There is off street parking in front of the house.

Each bedroom has a very comfortable queen size bed, and they are set in the both ends of the suite so it is very private for sharing with another couple. On Torquay it is AS IF there were two separate suites which they are indeed, as each contains a BD/Bathroom and while one has a full kitchen, the other side has a kitchenette, with a mini fridge, MW, coffeemaker, counter, stools, desk.
The living room includes a DVD player and 32” flat screen TV. There is a comfortable sofabed in the living room with double mattress. So 8 people can sleep comfortably.

It is large and fully fenced so children can play and you can relax.
Not too far is Mount Douglas, where you hike to the top and enjoy a 360 degree view of the city. The beach is also at a short walking distance.
This is a safe residential area, yet very close to city amenities including recreation and fitness centers, golf courses, theaters, shopping, and bus routes.
The street is very quiet, yet the next street is busy with many buses going by so it is easy to get by without a vehicle.

The proximity to the University of Victoria and Camosun College make the suite ideal for those attending courses and conferences.
NOTE- the hot tub referred to by some reviews and in some photos has since been removed and the patio renovated and expanded - It was a wise move!

Please note: If you are in your twenties and it is important to you to have a party with some friends, this place is not for you. But I am sure you will find another one perfect for that.
Dogs - may be considered on a case by case basis. No puppies and no large dogs. Pet deposit and extra cleaning fee applies. Dogs absolutely not allowed in the bedrooms and furniture.

Upon request, there are items that will make vacations with young children easier such as: high chair/swing; baby tub; baby chair; play mat; stroller; exersaucer; toys.
