Victoria house description

The perfect location for a stay in Victoria; quiet yet in the heart of it all. Located in historical James Bay, within 2 blocks of the Royal BC Museum, the Inner Harbour, Parliament Buildings, and Pacific Undersea Gardens. Chinatown and the Maritime Museum of British Columbia are a short 10 minute walk. Enjoy Beacon Hill Park just one block away or the ocean front of Dallas Rd a quick 6 minute walk. Hop on a boat to see the whales or grab a kayak and explore on your own; its all within a short walk. An easy find from the Inner Harbour Ferries or Float Planes; easy location for airport shuttle drops/pickups.

This lovely 2009 built 2 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom strata duplex is located in the heart of the James Bay neighborhood. The interior of this spacious home is finished with the highest quality granite countertops, hardwood floors, stone tiles, bright and beautiful with all the comforts to make your Victoria stay most relaxing.

                We stayed in Deborah’s place for 30 days Feb/Mar 2014 and we liked everything about the home. First, the location is perfect; within easy walking distance of downtown, Beacon Hill Park, the Ocean walkway next to Dallas Road, and the all important grocery shopping (700 meters). Second, the home was very clean and provided space for us to spread out. Third, Deborah was very supportive and we had the feeling that we were dealing with a friend rather than someone operating a commercial rental. We sincerely recommend that this home be considered by anyone planning a long stay (or a short stay) in Victoria.

                Recommended for: Romantic getaway, age 55+, tourists without a car, sightseeing, girls getaway.

                Fantastic place to stay in Victoria - walking distance (7 minutes) to the Inner Harbor and downtown, easy access to the bike trails. Deborah was a great host and her home had everything we needed for a wonderful holiday. We'll definitely be back!

                What a wonderful home, great location, perfect for two couples who want to be near each other yet each with their privacy. And, the kitchen, it is perfect for cooking for a group and being able to stay in the conversation. As "out of towners" in town for the week of our daughters wedding it was a great place for us to be able to host small groups of relatives with intimacy. You can actually seat 11 people each with a dining chair or stool and a countertop/table upon which to place their plate! (I know we did it!) A short walk to the inner harbour takes you to an evening out and a short walk in the other direction takes you for a quiet walk in Beacon Hill park. And Deborah, we never actually did meet her, but she couldn't have been more welcoming and understanding. If you can snag this place, do. It was great.

                Fabulous apartment, with excellent service from the host. Spotless. 3 bathrooms. 2 comfortable bedrooms. Great kitchen.Everything we needed in a location with so many services close by, as well as major tourist attractions (such as the harbour). Nice quiet residential street.

                We stayed for 3 weeks in Victoria in this very comfortable home. The kitchen was well equipped with good appliances, but did not have a microwave. The convenience of living in James Bay is unbeatable! Deborah met us and gave us full instructions when we arrived and was available for help throughout our stay. It was a wonderful holiday.
