Victoria house description

Maplewood Cottage is a bright home in a quaint family neighborhood, close to all level of amenities. Its convenient location has easy access downtown and to Victoria's tourist sights, and is close to the University of Victoria and Camosun College.

This vacation home offers a fully equipped 3 bedroom, 1 bathroom suite, suitable for up to 6 people.

You will have all the comforts of home - a big back yard, deck, and grill, free street parking, wireless internet and cable, in-suite laundry, and a modern kitchen.

The home is comprised of 2 queen bedrooms and 1 double bedroom. All bedrooms are equipped with desks, in the event that you are here to study or work.

This non-smoking home is very close to walking and jogging trails, a Childrens' Park, and a 24 hour grocery/pharmacy store. Close proximity to great shopping - Uptown Center & Mayfair Mall. 15 minute bike ride, or a 7 minutes' drive to the University of Victoria.

For those using transit, there is one quick bus to and from downtown, with a bus stop 2 blocks away (Maplewood at Derby).

A great hotel alternative for families, extended family vacations, and sharers.

Everything you need is included in your rental -- free heat, electricity, wireless internet, cable t.v., parking, linens, towels, kitchen equipment and basic supplies (such as coffee and tea, sugar, dish soap and laundry soap).

We personally check in our quests, and live close by if you have any questions, or need assistance. We aim to make you feel like our vacation home is your home away from home and trust you will have a pleasant stay.

This is our newest vacation home, and we are building our review history. Want to be reassured about the quality of our home and service? Check our other vacation home for further five star reviews at VRBO #449911.
