                  About the owner: We have lived in this area for 20 years, so can help you locate whatever you are looking for. We absolutely love Victoria, and the location of our home. You will too!! We are retired, we love to run, we love to travel and to meet new friends.

                  Why the Owner Chose Victoria:
                  Our home is in the beautiful GORGE area and is a great choice for a vacation, either for family or for a couple. You can go out the front door RIGHT one and a half blocks to the forested park with trails (Cuthbert Holmes Park); and LEFT 0.5 km to the beautiful GORGE waterway walk. You will love it!! There is so much for kids to do locally.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                  Gas fireplace for chilly evenings. Air conditioning is great room for hot days. Lots of room for you and your family. This is a very peaceful setting. In the backyard, for your enjoyment, there is the OASIS - a private area for just you and your family to enjoy with a barbeque, table with an umbrella, and lots of flora and fauna for ambiance.
