Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: I have lived in Victoria for 49 years and my husband has always felt Victoria has been home, but relocated here at 1988. I carry a wealth of knowledge of local tourist spots, as well as off the beaten path day excursions.

Why the Owner Chose Victoria:
This location is the best kept secret in Victoria! It's close to everything you could ever need, yet out of the noisy downtown area. A quiet haven by the ocean with easy highway access to explore up Island, get to the Vancouver and Port Angeles Ferry, our international airport, or downtown float planes to Seattle.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
It's quiet, you feel like you are part of a community, it's private and relaxing, yet close to the downtown nightlife.
