Property description

Dragonfly Cottage - Paradise by Beacon Hill Park.....

Tucked into a quiet neighborhood in the heart of Victoria, BC, Dragonfly Cottage offers both the charm of a heritage home and proximity to the area’s most popular attractions.

We’re steps away from the restaurants, cafes and shops on trendy Cook Street, and only one house down from the 200-acre Beacon Hill Park. Another two blocks will take you to the ocean with walks along Dallas Road and the beach, with views of the Olympic Mountains across Juan de Fuca Strait. And if you’re looking for museums, heritage spots, or nightlife, downtown Victoria is just a short walk away.

Much like Victoria itself, Dragonfly Cottage is for the traveler who longs to be surrounded by beautiful things. With its mélange of antique furniture and modern accents, the eclectic designer decor invites you to settle in and relax. The cottage has beautifully sunlit and spacious rooms, with more than enough room for everyone. There is a choice of two or three bedrooms, each with their own unique atmosphere, and a lovely bathroom with a claw foot tub and shower.

The fully-equipped kitchen boasts stainless-steel appliances, a large island, and black counter-tops. Off the kitchen is a small laundry room a new stainless-steel washer and dryer. The cottage also has a glassed-in front porch, an open-design living and dining area, and a secluded garden where you can savor your morning coffee or a glass of wine. In addition to all this, we have child-proofed the house to make sure your little ones are safe.

* 3rd bdrm. available upon request.
Extra cost is $40. per person, per night.

There are two self-contained units in the building.

This one-of-a-kind cottage is sure to book fast.

Dragonfly really is `Paradise by Beacon Hill Park`

Dragonfly is a beautiful, serene and comfortable home. Sun-lit rooms and a sense of spaciousness create a lovely and relaxed atmosphere. You have the feeling and the charm of a cottage, while in the heart of the city..... and it's only only steps away from Beacon Hill Park!

Beacon Hill Park......

This beautiful and interesting park is described as one of Victoria's 'crowning jewels'. It would be difficult to argue with this once you have spent a day exploring its 62 acres of natural beauty. It doesn't matter what you're in the mood for, a day in this magical park will offer you something.

Beacon Hill is a beautifully landscaped and manicured park with gardens, ponds, stone bridges, and alpine, rock gardens.There are also large areas of the park that have been left in their natural state, the fallen trees creating a sculptural landscape among the natural grasses and native plants.

The park is home to many exotic and native trees, including Garry Oak, Arbutus, Douglas-fir, and Western Red Cedar - to name just a few. A colony of Great Blue Herons, which once numbered over 100 nests, has returned to its nesting grounds in the park this year, after being chased away by a family of Bald Eagles in 2008.

Beacon Hill park is for visitors and locals alike, regardless of age. It's a delightful place for children to spend the day..... there's a petting zoo, playgrounds, a wading pool and picnic areas, live music in the band-shell and one of the world’s tallest Totem Poles.
It goes on and on.....

Now, let's move on to the Village......

Cook Street Village...Lively and colorful, it is full of charm and character, with something for everyone.
The streets are pedestrian friendly with a small village atmosphere. There are outdoor food courts, fruit and vegetable vendors, markets, cafes and restaurants, a butcher, a bakery, antique shops and boutiques.
Patios and cafes? Well, you have over ten to choose from along three city blocks, year round! Oh, and did I mention the neighborhood pub?

Our beautiful little village is practical too! You can find all of the day to day things you might need... banks, clinics, pharmacy, post office, hair salons, spas, chiropractor.... We have it all!

A walk along the ocean on Dallas Road?

I hope you like dogs. It's an off-leash area, and there are lots of great dogs and owners to watch and share the space with. Walk along the walkway, or sit on a bench and enjoy the view of the ocean and the snow-covered mountains across the way.

You might decide to spend the day down on the beach collecting rocks or reading a book .....and in case you forget your book..... not to worry. We also have a used-book store in the village, which is right next to one of the antique shops, and directly across from the wine store. Well, you get the picture.

I could go on and tell you about how you can walk downtown to the Parliament Buildings, the Empress Hotel, the Museum, Thunderbird Park, Inner Harbour and the night-life. I could also mention that by simply going in the other direction from Dragonfly Cottage, you come to the Art Gallery of Victoria, the Governor General’s House, and Craigdarrogh Castle.

And the best part? You've barely left your front door.....I told you it was paradise.

Everyone who has stayed in Dragonfly Cottage has loved the experience. Doesn't this sound like the perfect way to spend your time in Victoria?
