Property description

Consider this waterfront home a quiet retreat, romantic getaway, or a fabulous family vacation. Relax in a new top of the line Hot Tub with an ozone filtration system and a health spa quality 'micro bubbles' feature. Private beach access. Lots of windows provide light and spectacular ocean views all day.

Please see reviews below at the end of this description. (Also VRBO 376457, Home away 3009253)) for Seaside Tranquility

Our comfortable west coast waterfront home is located at the end of a quiet lane 15 min. from downtown Victoria but has a country feel.
Search D'Arcy Lane, Saanich for map. Stairs down to the beach are steps away. There is lots of on site parking, up to three cars.

The rate is for a group of six people, although we can accommodate up to nine for an extra charge. This home's old world charm includes
in-laid oak flooring throughout with fine
architectural details, such as special crown moldings and leaded glass entrance doors.


From most rooms, you have a 180 degree view of the ocean. The house is built on rock overlooking incredible beauty and wildlife. For early risers, watch the colorful sunrises and perhaps whales in the distance or an eagle or heron searching for a delicious treat in the sea. Often seals or otters love to play nearby
entertaining each other and you. Watch cruise ships in the distance near the San Juan Islands, or a kayak drifting by, with snow capped mountains in the background. Our property is
fenced so safe for young children.

The living area offered is over 2600 sq. ft. The
elegant foyer is spacious with immediate views
of the sea from another door to the oceanfront patio, stretching over 100 ft. The outdoor hot tub is close by, lovely for ocean gazing in

warmth. The large, but cozy, living room and dining room are filled with picture windows providing abundant light, perfect for gatherings.

Cable TV in living room and internet throughout the house. A 300 ft.² glass sunroom overlooks a lovely Zen style garden with lovely views of the ocean as well. The double size kitchen is a
chef's delight!

On the main floor there is a bedroom with a

queen size bed and cable TV. Just across the hallway from this bedroom is a newly renovated bathroom with a walk in shower. Upstairs
features a bedroom with queen
bed with a balcony overlooking the ocean and it is a spacious almost 275 ft.². Jetted jacuzzi tub and shower is also upstairs. Across the hall there is a bedroom with two single beds and
another with a Queen and single bed.

Restaurants, shopping and organic markets are
close by. Within 2 km are two golf courses and mini-golf for the children. Nearby is the Lochside trail, excellent for cycling long distances or jogging in a country setting.

Downtown you'll find the Royal BC Museum, the Wax Museum, the Empress Hotel and Undersea Gardens. You might like a horse drawn carriage ride. A short 15 min. drive northwest are the famous Butchart Gardens and Butterfly World. We are within 20 to 25 min. from the airport and the BC or Washington ferries.

Our climate is mild. We usually have just a few days of snow, if any, in Winter. It does rain with lots of dry, sunny days, creating perfect conditions for year-round gardens. We are famous for daffodils in January! As tranquil and sunny as you'll find our seaside in Spring and Summer, the exciting winter storms are invigorating to watch from your cozy living room.

You will find your home away from home a tranquil haven for relaxation and noticing nature and wildlife at its finest. Please email for more information and photos, or check out our website link below.

Reviews

'We arrived and you were very welcoming and helpful.
Great place. Thanks for a wonderful time Donna and for being so accommodating. I appreciated it. We all had a wonderful time and our people really appreciated your hospitality. We will definitely keep in touch. I appreciate your generosity and may look to re book in the future as well as refer others.'
Rick.J.H., Edmonton, Alberta May, 2013

'We are departing very early (@6a). We really enjoyed the house; it was perfect for us. Thank you very much. Your guests.'
Alaska, September, 2012

'Hi Donna- just wanted to say thanks again for renting your beautiful home to us. We had a great and relaxing vacation and enjoyed our stay (as well as the views) tremendously. Thanks again,'
Matt P., Seattle, Washington, August, 2012

'I'd be happy to be a positive reference and, yes, it's fine to use my comments.
I am going through the pictures and video taken during the visit to Victoria. With days set aside for salmon fishing, whale watching, Butchart Gardens, High Tea at the Empress and a tour of Hatley Castle (Mark and Emily were married there 9 years ago), trips into town for meals, and an occasional walk along your beach, our time was quite full. It helped to have such a nice home to rest in each evening and collect ourselves for the next day's adventure.
Thank you for opening your ocean side home to us. Being there made the trip all the more restful and enjoyable.'
Richard V., Dallas, Texas, July, 2012

'Thank you. We enjoyed our stay at your house. Thank you for sharing it and thank you for all this information! '
Cindi M., San Antonio, Texas, July, 2012

'Thank you for letting us borrow your home - views were spectacular!'
L., N., and Kids, Medicine Hat, Alberta, May, 2012

'Thanks, Donna! We loved this place! We hope to see you again.'
The A's, Jasper, Alberta, October
