Victoria house description

This well-appointed home is walking distance to downtown Victoria, the Inner Harbour, Craigdarroch Castle, Victoria Art Gallery and a lovely stroll to Cook Street Village and the beach. We are central and convenient to all downtown amenities.

We offer three options for our guests: the entire house (five bedrooms, sleeps 12+) for $425/night, the top two floors (three bedrooms plus pull-out couch, sleeps 6-8 adults plus children) for $250/night, or the lower self-contained suite for $100/night. We feature being downtown Victoria's most reasonable vacation rental for large groups and most convenient and comfortable.

The house boasts 2600 sq ft of comfortable west coast living over three storeys and five bedrooms.

The main floor has the two bedrooms (queen beds) and a sunny 'open concept' living space with a kitchen, sunroom, dining room and living room with electric fireplace and huge skylight. This floor is ideal for visiting, relaxing, watching TV and cooking big meals. Our kitchen is stocked with everything one would need and the dining room table has many leaves to seat up to ten people.

The top floor is the master bedroom with a king size bed and a two piece bathroom (no shower/bath). It has two skylights and a calm and peaceful feel to it. It is very private from the rest of the house.

The lower floor is a one bedroom self-contained suite. It has a full kitchen and bathroom (standing glass shower), TV and laundry. There is a queen size bed in the main room and a double bed in the small bedroom. This lower suite has 6’4” ceilings and laminate flooring.

There is a wonderful sunroom that catches afternoon and evening sun. There are some sitting chairs and a bed for napping and even sleeping.

The backyard is private and has a croquet set and some lawn chairs.

We accept most pets but they must stay outside or in the sunroom. We have a huge school field beside us, great for walking the pooch (or the kids!).

Wireless internet, laundry, six car driveway, very clean, ideal location for those wanting to be close to all the amenities. Private backyard for sunny afternoons and relaxing. Bus stop across the street.

Not only a great vacation spot but a comfortable temporary home for those on the road. Perfect for longer stays and entertaining.

In case additional sleeping space is needed, we have 4” sleeping mats and a double pull-out sofa in the living room.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About the owner: I manage two vacation rental properties while studying at university. My parents own the house and they live up island with my sister and her family. I am in my thirties and have lived in Taiwan for eight years, Thailand for one year and here in beautiful Victoria for over fifteen years. I love this city and love recommending great day trips and more.

                      Why the Owner Chose Victoria:
                      We decided to buy this house because of its convenient downtown location and absolute charm of the house. Once you get here, you will know what I mean...

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      This house, and I know from personal experience, is ideal for family gatherings. The open-concept kitchen and living areas make it fun to cook meals while still enjoying everyone's company. The sun room makes for a great location to either read the morning paper in the rocking chair, have an afternoon nap on the day bed or let the kids play in a safe room. This main floor is great for visiting yet the bedroom have very heavy doors that give privacy and block the noise. The master bedroom upstairs is also very private and a great get-away for the parents! It has an en-suite bathroom and great skylights that accent the attic-style ceiling. Great natural light and a super comfy king-size bed. The additional lower suite adds another two beds, full bathroom and kitchen.
