Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: I am a single, retired lawyer who likes to ski and travel during the winter months I kayak,bike and hike here in Victoria in summer My start and finish rental dates are very flexible I would prefer a single several month tenancy, ideally Nov. thru March or as late as May.

Why the Owner Chose Victoria:
Having travelled the world and most of Canada, I feel that Victoria is the best city in Canada in which to live, B.C. the most stunningly beautiful province with nearby Vancouver consistently highly rated city in world polls. I have lived in Beverly Hills, Orange county, etc and nothing compares to the relaxed pace understated affluence and beauty of Victoria and environs. The Canadian political and economic climate are stable, the city is safe and geared for tourism.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
It is walking distance to a fabulous park and disney- like downtown The garden is a fabulous to bike inside the glass enclosed deck on the second floor
