                  • Victoria is a lovely community located on the southern tip of Vancouver Island and is also the capital of British Columbia. It is the must-see city to visit in British Columbia, starting with a trip - just a ten minute drive from my home - to the Parliament buildings adjacent to the harbour. Victoria has been a popular recreation destination for well over a century with year-round golfing, cycling, bird-watching, kayaking and hiking to name just a few of the many activities visitors can enjoy. Just around the corner from my home, are popular restaurants like Fifth Street Bar and Grill and San Remo (Italian) restaurant. Shopping is nearby since my home is situated close to two major malls in the city. ...moreless

                    Me, my wife and our 3 small children stayed here during Spring Break. The owner was amazing and everything we needed was provided. The house was very nicely done and well appointed. We would definitely stay here again should we ever make our way back to Victoria!

                    Extremely clean, well appointed home with a short commute to downtown. Host is excellent, even washing and mailing us some clothes that my youngest daughter left behind. The kids loved the bunk beds. Would definitely stay here again.

                    This is a very well maintained accommodation with comfortable furniture, excellent kitchen, a good separation between a tv room and a sitting room. Its quiet at night, which is a plus, and in a good location, just not right downtown or near the water. There is a sense of home away from home here, and a connection with the homes past is present, its very functional and yet very pleasant. Debbie is a first rate manager of this property. We stayed 6 nights, it was a real oasis for us, and a great place to entertain a small group of friends and family. Good price too.

                    We absolutely loved this place. We visited at Christmas time for a family Christmas. When we got there, the place was already decorated for Christmas with two trees and inside and outside decorations. The unit had everything we needed and if we were missing something, it was delivered promptly. I could not recommend this place enough. Will definitely keep this at the top of my list for our next Victoria visit. Thanks Debbie.

                    We agree with the glowing reviews below with the added enjoyment of the Christmas decorations Debbie had displayed. As people who enjoy cooking and eating in, it was great to have a well-stocked kitchen and nice dining areas (although we did avail ourselves of the New Years brunch at the Empress and a dim-sum lunch in Chinatown). We will happily stay again at this lovely vacation home.

                    Our first experience at renting a house was awesome!!! Pictures viewed exactly what the rental property looked like. Very close to shopping since we celebrated Thanksgiving with our family, making the most of almost all her lovely dishes. We could easily keep in contact before our visit to confirm all arrangements, which really put us at ease. And thank-you very much for the poultry seasoning.:)))))

                    This quaint house was a gem. The owner, Debbie, has gone out of her way to provide every little thing imaginable. You will want for nothing if you stay here. Everything is top-notch with no detail overlooked. The property was clean and exceptionally well-maintained. The house was a short drive to most attractions and was close to major highways. Many restaurants were within easy access as were grocery stores and pharmacies. I would highly recommend this property.

                    My husband and I have stayed at this delightful property a few times and each time we want to stay longer because we feel so at home - only better! The home is spotless top to bottom inside and out, and organized with all the amenities new and in clean working order. The beds and linens are great, small appliances, electronics, dishes and pans all very good quality if one is likely to do their own cooking as we are. We appreciate the location as it is very central and easy access to all the wonderful activities in Victoria yet it is very quiet and peaceful even when sitting outside enjoying the lovely yard. I especially like having a separate family room and living room when there is more than two of us staying there as both rooms are ample and full of natural light. Although our previous stays were only for a week at a time, it would be an easy long term stay in terms of comfort, convenience, and budget. Debbie, the property owner has always been most accommodating and helpful in making our stay a most pleasant experience while in Victoria.

                    What can I say about this lovely home away from home. Debbie's home was awesome. We have three kids, one teenager and a set of twin boys and they shared the second room comfortably. The house was lovely and clean and spacious. It was awesome to be so close to everything, my family but as well all the activities around. I don't think any day of driving we did was over 25minutes. Debbie was wonderful and it is nice that she has left her own touches in the house so you feel like you get to know her a little as well. There is nothing amiss in this house. I would reccommend for anyone and everyone to rent this home as you will not be unsatisfied. I Wish Debbie all the success.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1991

                  About the owner: I'm originally from Barrie, Ontario but moved to Victoria BC in June 1989 when my then 6 year old daughter finished kindergarten. As a single mother I wanted to be closer to my family who had all previously made the move out west. This was the best decision that I have ever made. Victoria is truly a wonderful place to live with everything it has to offer, not to mention the fact that it has the best year round weather in all of Canada. Not too many people in Canada can say they golf and bike in January and February but we can here in Victoria.

                  Why the Owner Chose Victoria:
                  I purchased this home in 1991. Being an older home it was full of character and had a lot of soul. There are hardwood floors in the main living space, wainscotting in the living room and sun room. Over the years I have completely renovated the home to bring it up to today's modern standards.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  This lovely home is tucked away in a quiet, residential area but ideally located close to downtown. It gets an abundance of light throughout the home. The sun room has nine windows alone! It's a charming, character-filled house that is relaxing and clutter-free. Care was taken to decorate it to show it to its full advantage.
