Victoria house description

University Heights Vacation Home is conveniently located near the University of Victoria, with quick, easy, access to downtown. For the outdoorsy types, great golf courses, fabulous beaches and hiking opportunities are close by.

This family oriented property is private (a full home-not a suite), at the end of a cul-de-sac, with a fully fenced back yard. It is close to several shopping areas, where you can grab a coffee, shop, see a movie, and pick up anything you need-- at the grocery store, liquor store, bank, or pharmacy. Several restaurants and take out venues make dinner selection easy.

Walk over to Gordon Head Recreation Center for free outdoor tennis, or use the swimming pool and fitness facility for a modest fee.

A wonderful Children's Playground and basketball court is less than 5 minutes' walk. University Heights Cinema, also within walking distance, plays the latest movies.

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, open-concept living room, full kitchen with all the modern conveniences (including dishwasher and washer/dryer). Plenty of free parking, and storage available for golf clubs and sporting equipment.

Two TVs, DVD player, free cable and Wireless Internet, are available for in-house entertainment, along with a selection of games and toys for families.

Everything you need for a comfortable stay is included: not only the basics like heat, electricity, cable, and WIFI, but also all your linens, towels, beach towels, kitchen equipment, and basic staples (tea, sugar, flour, spices, washing up liquid, laundry detergent etc.).

We aim to make our vacation home your home away from home. We live close by, and take care to check you in and help you get settled. Should you need anything, we would be happy to assist you.

We also believe in straightforward pricing-- the quoted price is inclusive of all fees. Please read our great reviews for peace of mind~

              Car: Not Necessary

              Our vacation home is uniquely situated in the safe and vibrant University District, while having quick and easy access to downtown Victoria.

              Walk over to our neighbourhood recreation center for a swim, fitness class, or use of their tennis and gym facilities. A children's play park and basketball court are less than a 5 minutes' walk away.

              Several grocery stores, coffee shops (Starbucks & Tim Horton's), restaurants (Original Joe's & Boston Pizza), and a movie theater are within a 5-10 minute walk, via Tuscany Village and University Heights Shopping Centers.

              For the outdoorsy types, a brief, but vigorous hike, up Mount Douglas Provincial Park will provide you with stunning views of the city and mountains. The lower side of the park offers a wild west coast beach on which to beachcomb and watch wildlife.

              A few minutes drive will take you to world famous Cadboro Bay Beach and Village, where you can windsurf, kayak, paddleboard, beachcomb and shop at some local specialty stores. Cordova Bay Village, also a short drive, offers golfing, mini-golfing, and some unique shopping opportunities.

              University Heights Vacation Home is within 4.5 miles of 6 Golf Courses (Victoria, Cordova Bay, Uplands, Henderson Park, Mt. Douglas, and Cedar Hill Golf Courses).

              A quick and easy drive will put you in the heart of the Downtown Victoria--The Royal BC Museum, Victoria Art Gallery, China Town, Whale Watching Excursions, and Royal McPherson Theater offer cultural diversity. World-class shops, bars and restaurants round off the experience.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2012

              About the owner: I decided to list my vacation home after having many wonderful experiences using VRBO services abroad. My family lives 5 minutes away from the Vacation Home, and I am personally available to help our guests check in and make their stay an enjoyable one.

              Why the Owner Chose Victoria:
              This home is perfectly situated near the University of Victoria, with quick access downtown and all the major tourist sights. It is conveniently located within walking distance to all level of amenities (shopping, coffee, gyms, Cinema etc.)--and has everything a vacationing family would need.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Our home is in a quiet family neighbourhood, while being close to all the best Victoria tourist sites.
