Victoria house description

Our house is a modern (built in 1989), three storey, four bedroom home in a tree-lined neighbourhood, close to the centre of the city. We love the brightness from our many large windows. The kitchen is fully equipped with Jenn-Air stove, microwave, large fridge and dishwasher. There is an eating area in the kitchen. We have a spacious family room, off the kitchen, that leads onto a large deck with barbeque. The deck overlooks a lane surrounded by oak, walnut and cedar trees with glimpses of the Olympic Mountains (see video). We have a formal dining room next to a sunken living room. There are two gas fireplaces and a two piece powder room on the main floor. Upstairs is a Master Bedroom with ensuite & deck, walk-in shower and jacuzzi tub as well as a walk-in closet. One guest bedroom has a queen bed and the second guest bedroom a single bed and pack'n'play (crib). There is a 3 piece bathroom for the guest bedrooms. The basement has a bedroom with two single beds. We offer complementary soap, shampoo & conditioner for your convenience. We have a highchair, baby gates, toys & books for young children. We are proud to offer a well stocked open pantry. We are an LGBT friendly home. We are fully insured for VRBO guests and use a professional cleaner.

                          Our home is located in a quiet, tree lined neighbourhood. There are three pubs, restaurants, an excellent grocery store, pharmacy and liquor store within easy walking distance.

Victoria is a city of 350,000 people with a beautiful, walkable downtown and harbour; it is a perfect place for whale watching tours. The Provincial Museum is one of the best in Canada with excellent First Nations and travelling exhibits. Victoria has excellent opportunities for outdoor activities; golfing, kayaking, sailing, mountain biking, hiking and swimming. We are on the doorstep of the West Coast Trail and Long Beach. Close by is the world famous Butchart Gardens. A ferry ride finds you in Vancouver; gateway to Whistler Mountain, host of the 2010 Olympic Games. Seattle is a couple of hours away by ferry over the beautiful Juan de Fuca Strait or 20 minutes by plane. Include an Alaskan cruise in your vacation plans and you will never regret it.

                          Year Purchased: 1998

                          About the owner: Frances and Steve have four grown children who have left us with empty bedrooms to fill with visitors while we travel. Steve is a semi-retired pharmacist who has recently completed a Master of Arts (in History)as well as writing a book. Frances is a retired bookkeeper who prefers spending her time biking, knitting, cross-stitch, sewing, yoga and Pilates. We made our first trip to Europe in 2001 and have been hooked on travel since then. In our travels we quickly learned how important clean, and well maintained accommodations, close to amenities and local attractions, are to an enjoyable vacation.

                          Why the Owner Chose Victoria:
                          Our house allows you to feel at home, away from the noise and bustle of downtown, but still within minutes of all the attractions that Victoria offers. Our house is a quality, well kept, professionally cleaned home. It is our principal residence and so is fully equipped. We live in a very safe and walkable neighbourhood and city. We are close to a frequent bus route to downtown & the university and walking distance from the Royal Jubilee Hospital.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          From our beautiful Japanese Maple tree to the formal dining room and comfortable living room and bedrooms you will fall in love with our house just as we did 16 years ago. A ten minute walk takes you to a beautiful beach with spectacular views of the Olympic Mountains. Looking out at the trees surrounding our back deck you will hardly believe you are in the city, not the country. Although we are only a 15 minute easy walk to the grocery store we can offer grocery purchase service ready for you in the fridge for when you arrive. Our cleaning lady is fantastic and can be hired by you while here if you desire.
