"We spent 3 nights at Wallace house, my husband, myself, and our adult daughter. The rooms were spacious, clean, and comfortable. Kirk and Gloria were warm and welcoming, and spent time with us providing directions, suggestions for places to go and eat, and help when we couldn't figure out the DVD player. They provided all the touches of home, including fresh baked muffins, fresh cut flowers, OJ, milk, bread, butter and their own jam in the fridge, and a variety of seasonings with which to cook. We were a little hesitant about a basement suite, but the rooms got plenty of natural light during the day! The place was very quiet and peaceful, yet within easy access to everywhere we wanted to go. And all at a very reasonable price! We would definitely stay here again!"

"We rented this place last weekend for my 30th birthday. It was my best birthday yet! Beautiful sandy beach with a deck and hot tub that looks over the ocean. The owners are very nice and helpful. I will be booking this place every year from now on!

"Whether this is your first time using VRBO or you are an experienced user, you will find that this house is exactly as described. Likewise, if this is your first visit to Victoria or you are returning for the umpteenth time, this residence is an amazing place to call home. It is an extraordinary base of operations to explore the City as well as the southern part of Vancouver Island.
The property is within walking distance of so many places. Ten minutes in any direction gets you to where you want to be. Beacon Hill Park, the Empress Hotel, the Inner Harbor, Fisherman’s Wharf, the Dallas Road waterfront are just minutes away. Restaurants, a grocery store, neighborhood markets, a pharmacy, even Starbucks are within easy walking distance. A public transit stop is just at the end of the road.
The house is so inviting and has everything you could want. If you choose to eat at home, the kitchen is stocked with all the utensils, cookware, bakeware and serving dishes you could possibly need. Plus there’s a grill and outdoor dining area next to the garden. Want to listen to music…the CD collection is awesome. The washer and dryer are located on the second floor next to the master suite…so convenient. Plus the sun room/porch on the second floor is a perfect place to exercise, read or simply relax and catch the breezes. But what makes this house so inviting is the way it is decorated. Artwork and travel memorabilia displayed throughout the house, simply make it a fun place to be. You can’t help but imagine the good times the owner has had travelling and collecting!
We were greeted upon arrival and given a tour of the property. It’s so apparent that the owner wants her guests to have as much fun staying on Vancouver Island as she has living here. She was a perfect host and gave us tips on places to go and things to do.
This residence was absolutely perfect for our month-long getaway in Victoria. We were so comfortable in the house and neighborhood that neither of us was ready to leave. When we return to Victoria, we hope we'll be staying here again."

Amazing Escape in a Perfect Cottage in the Ideal Setting
"Our only wish was that we had more time at this beautiful cottage. Gorgeous, charming house overlooking Shawnigan Lake, with all the amenities inside. Extremely well maintained and comfortable. Our family enjoyed the view of the water each evening, from the porch, the dining room table inside and the outdoor eating area where we barbecued.
Peace and tranquility abound, but within a short drive are wonderful spots to pick up groceries, enjoy a mill (we found the Chippery to be fantastic) or hike through the bountiful natural landscape.
The lake is serene, clear and calm, and we enjoyed kayaking on its waters, appreciating the diverse birds and other creatures, and relaxing on the Adirondack chairs beside the water.
I'd recommend this cottage to any couple looking for a getaway, or a family to enjoy the beautiful, calm of the lake and surrounding area."
