Step back in time and enjoy our 1907 brick home set atop a breathtaking rock garden with views of downtown Victoria, the Outer Harbour and the Olympic mountains. This historical home has been lovingly renovated into three distinct suites with separate entrances and garden patios for a cottage feel. Each suite is fully-equipped with modern amenities such as a dishwasher, washer/dryer, microwave, WIFI and TV with cable.
This suite (#1) is a very spacious one bedroom suite with approx. 850 sq feet. There are 1 1/2 bathrooms, a full-sized living room and formal dining area. It was built from the main section of the house and features high ceilings, pillars, stained glass and hardwood floors.
The suite is fully furnished and has a queen sized bed and a pull-out couch in the living room. Suitable for short-term or long-term stays.
Sit outside and enjoy the temperate climate in a garden patio or on a wrap-around covered veranda featuring a propane BBQ. You can smell the ocean in the air.
Your well-behaved and non-aggressive pet is welcome here--each suite has a fenced-in area and a doggie door.
The home is located in a quiet neighbourhood within walking distance of downtown (20 min walk), everyday shopping needs (5 min walk), and a scenic oceanside walkway (10 min walk) that travels around the inner harbour. If you like cycling, we are a 5 min ride to the Galloping Goose Trail. If you don't feel like walking, a cab ($10 CDN) can get you most downtown tourist attractions. Or catch the harbour ferry (10 min walk to the closest stop).
Send an inquiry if you have questions. We look forward to hearing from you.

About the owner: I am a retired registered nurse my husband, born in Germany still runs his Music studio and store. We are long term residents of Victoria, (my mother was born one block from our house). We have been married 40 years. We enjoy the wonderful amenities Victoria has to offer on a regular basis. We truly love animals and welcome your pets. We have a one legged Seagull we have named Heathcliff which we nursed back to health after finding him near death on the beach down the road. He is has adopted us and spends a lot of time perched on our roof or sitting on the rock to sun himself.
Why the Owner Chose Victoria: I fell in love with this house the minute I saw it. It is a rare 1907 brick house on a hillcrest with perfect proximity to downtown Victoria, transportation and walks. I have worked to return this home to its glory for the last 13 years and am so proud to share its restored charm with guests.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment: We are active users of vacation rentals throughout the world as well. We like to provide the same care and attention to your stay as we have appreciated when we travel.
