Victoria estate description

The world famous Butchart Gardens is a mere 5 minute drive from the Courtyard Suite and not to be missed. Come and join us for the 'magic of Christmas'. At Butchart Gardens, Christmas is ultimately a season unto itself.
When visiting Victoria during the holiday season. One of the top overall attractions. Butchart Gardens transforms itself into a winter wonderland once early December rolls around. Tens of thousands of lights help to set the stage, as do wreaths, evergreen swags, ice skating, carolers, cosy fireplaces in the dinning rooms and much more. It's truly to be enjoyed.



My Husband Ollie and I are the proud owners of two vacation rentals on Vancouver Island British Columbia.

Committed To Your Experience:

We have tried to anticipate your every need, to help make your trip to Canada one you'll want to relive.

Our unique properties are:

Nestled in the heart of the bucolic Mt. Newton Valley, you'll find our private and peaceful BC vacation rentals.

Why Is Heathwood Better?

Why are our vacation rentals better than your standard house or condo for rent in Victoria?

Views Like No Other!

Take in the heavenly sights, with panoramic views of the Olympic Mountains of Washington. (See our photos)

Its Monumental: In 1990 The Olympic Park was declared a national monument, that's how amazing it is. And now you can visually experience it right from your own private patio.

While you're out on the patio, watch the skies light up with explosive colors every Saturday evening, compliments of the Butchart Gardens Summer firework show.

Your Patio Seems Like The Center Of The Universe.
When the fireworks end, a spectacular light show continues. Indulge in an evening outdoors with a glass of wine to enjoy, while gazing at the glowing stars that seem to dance in the sky for you.

Imagine waking up from a rejuvenating night's rest, enjoying your morning tea, while beholding the beauty of the valley and the awe-inspiring views of the Bay.

Enveloped In Charm:

From the moment you open the gate into your private Courtyard and enter the courtyard suite we know you will feel welcomed.

Heavenly Gardens:

The luscious landscapes and calming colors of the gardens resemble something like a Garden of Eden, it's that special.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2006

                  About the owner: My Husband and I have travelled extensively. When, one day we sailed to Vancouver Island, we were captivated by the beauty of this entire area and knew that we had found a gem. We felt incredibly fortunate that we really stumbled on this stunning Island and knew that this is where we would love make our permanent home.

                  Why the Owner Chose Victoria:
                  The absolute beauty and uniqueness of the valley captivated us. The home with its beautiful gardens and spectacular views.We face South overlooking this beautiful valley, through to the Olympic Mountains of Washington. We can see the Ferries crossing from Brentwood Bay to Mill Bay. We enjoy the proximity to Victoria and the Inner Harbour to the South of us and the picturesque town of Sidney-by-the-sea to the North of us all within minutes away. We are always so happy to return to the Beauty, peace and tranquility of our home. Our property provides an ideal setting for our Equestrian activities, we can enjoy watching our horses grazing peacefully in their pastures..

                  The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
                  The Unique Benefits at this Estate: The absolute beauty and uniqueness of the valley allows us to live in the heart of the countryside, surrounded by farms producing fresh local produce where the honor system is still often used.We are in the perfect location; with easy access to Victoria the capital city of British Columbia, a short 15 to 20 minute drive. Or if we wish to explore this magnificent Island the Pacific Marine Circle Route is the perfect one-day drive. Including visiting West Coast beaches and parks, world famous ancient forests and mammoth trees… with interesting and quaint places to see along the way such as “Point No Point” for tea with a stunning view, French Beach, China Beach, Port Renfrew and the fascinating Botanical Gardens the trailhead of Pacific Rim Park, Cowichan Lake , the list is immense. After a day of sight seeing and discovering new places to return to the peace, beauty and tranquility of Heathwood is a treasure we never take for granted. Victoria and the South Island region is home to many exceptionally talented chefs who turn local products into memorable dining experiences. Taste the amazing foods from the region, fresh produce, Pacific seafood, fine wines and ales at the restaurants in the area or bring the delights you find home to enjoy in your “home away from home” – Heathwood.
