Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: I'm very proud to offer the Urban Cottage for your vacation in beautiful Victoria, British Columbia. This was my family home for many years and I still live on the property. Whether you need restaurant recommendations, directions, tips for how to entertain your young children, or help with anything in the cottage, I am here to make your stay perfect. Or if you are looking for complete privacy, my personal suite and entrance are separate and will ensure that my guests have privacy...you won't know I'm here! I hope to see you soon and welcome you to the Urban Cottage! Safe travels!

Why the Owner Chose Victoria:
The property is located in one of the best neighbourhoods in Victoria - South Fairfield. My home was built in 1920 and over the years I've updated it with new kitchen and attached family room, new bathroom and decor. I bought this property to raise my family and have many happy memories here. Now I am offering it to others to make their own memories of their fabulous vacation in Victoria :) I manage and clean the property myself, along with my mother and daughter. We believe that no cleaning service can clean to our exceptionally high standards or pay attention to detail like we do. My mother even irons the bed linen!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This is a one level home, so suitable for young children, as well as grandparents who may not want to do stairs to bedrooms everyday. There is a sunny back deck with bistro set to enjoy your morning coffee, as well as the afternoon/evening sun on the front porch. Enjoy a cocktail in the Adirondack chairs in the evening sun. Beautiful backyard is fully fenced...while away the afternoon in the double hammock! The street is only 4 blocks long and not a thoroughfare, so it's quiet and safe. My home is just a half block from the stunning Dallas Road waterfront, complete with sand/pebble beach, tide pools and paved walking paths along the cliffs. You can't beat this location! Within just a few blocks of the property is a fabulous children's play park, petting zoo, beautiful Beacon Hill Park, and the eclectic Cook Street village with cafes, boutiques and eateries. Downtown Victoria with its amazing restaurants, theatres and nightlife is at your doorstep...just a 5 minute drive or a lovely 20 minute stroll. The Urban Cottage has it all!
