Victoria estate description

An exceptional property in the heart of the bucolic Mt. Newton Valley. This private 2 bedroom, 2 bath, 1400 sq. ft. suite is attached to a luxurious country home, with spectacular 180 degree views over the pastoral Mt. Newton Valley, through to Brentwood Bay, and as far as the Olympic mountains of Washington.

Our comfortable suite has been designed with attention to detail. From the moment you open the gate into your private Courtyard and enter the courtyard suite we know you will feel welcome. Your suite has a fully equipped kitchen, cozy living room, Persian rugs, fine linens, exquisite bedding, many dining options, a private patio with magnificent views of the valley, ocean and mountains and many extra amenities. We have tried to anticipate your every need. Totally private from each other, the bedrooms allow two couples to each have their own private area.

The magnificent gardens surrounding the home may be enjoyed from your private balcony or courtyard.
Enjoy the fireworks at Butchart Gardens each Saturday evening throughout the summer months from your private Patio or simply take in the spectacular view.

Centrally located in the Mt. Newton valley, local activities are just moments away. Whether you like to commune with nature, hike trails, walk along beaches, whale watch, kayak, tour gardens and wineries or shop local artists galleries and boutiques we are close to them all. Many of our guests comment on the peaceful and relaxing surroundings here at Heathwood and they so enjoy the delightful cuisine that our local restaurants provide.

We encourage you to enjoy all that Heathwood has to offer and we look forward to having you stay with us.
