                          Year Purchased: 2002

                          About the owner: We are both music educators that live close by on the mainland and love to spend as much time as we can at our place on the island.

                          Why the Owner Chose Victoria:
                          This property has been in our family since 1967. In 2001 we decided to replace the original 400 square foot cottage and build a new family home. Since then we have been renting it as a vacation home that we also enjoy ourselves. One of the things we've found while renting our home is that people who visit our property want to return and repeat the experience. We are excited to be able to offer our place once again to families wanting a unique vacation home close to nature, but also close to Victoria, Sidney, and Brentwood Bay.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Our place is located in a small, quiet community that lets you feel like you are away from it all, yet you are a short 30 minutes away from Downtown Victoria. You are also 15 minutes away from the villages of Brentwood Bay and Saanichton. There are wonderful wineries,restaurants and gardens nearby, plus the added bonus of being on Saanich Peninsula where there are fresh and organic food stands and stalls throughout the area during the growing season. This place that our family has always called 'the Cottage' has been a wonderful summer and winter location to share family gatherings. While the adults are visiting on the main level or outside patio, the kids can be up in the loft playing video games , air hockey etc. Visitors also enjoy the water (some wetsuits provided) swimming, snorkelling and beachcombing. Every evening we have 'Sunset Ceremony' where we toast the sun as it sets behind the Malahat hills across the inlet. The cottage is a great place to retreat and reconnect with nature where you will likely see eagles, herons, seals, otters, and deer. A walk down the road will lead you to a regional park with more hiking trails, waterfalls and beaches to enjoy.
