ReviewsWrite a review
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.

Fantastic place to stay in Victoria
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!

A wonderful home, great location, perfectGuest comment entered by owner
A wonderful home, great location, perfect
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.

James Bay is unbeatable!Guest comment entered by owner
James Bay is unbeatable!
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.
