Parents of the Bride
"My daughter's wedding was in Victoria and as she has a small condo we needed a place to stay. I am not very fond of hotels and I wanted somewhere that my family could stay together. There was myself,my husband, my mom, daughter, sister and her husband. My niece and her partner also joined us for a couple of nights. This home was perfect! It is spacious and very well equipped. Nice linens and lots of them. We even hosted a meet and greet before the wedding and it was great, our guests loved it, the home has so much personality and beautiful unique artwork. It photographed so well in our pic's due to the great light. The bride and bridesmaids got ready here as well. Location is perfect, we like to walk and it is close to everything. Highly recommended, so much nicer than a hotel and cost effective too!"

"We rented this lovely home for a week the past two summers. The home is large, beautifully maintained, and has stunning ocean views from most rooms. It also features a gourmet kitchen, hot tub, games room, media room, and a trampoline (which our children loved!). The house was very clean and inviting. The home owners are also wonderful to deal with--very friendly and responsive. Without reservation--this is an exceptional "home away from home" and we hope to come back again the future."

"One of the special features of this home is its location - you drive up and around a mountain on a winding road that eventually runs along the ocean, about 15 minutes from Brentwood Bay. Keep an eye out for deer, bikers, other cars, and--unfortunately--police radar traps. The house is on the water below the road, accessed by a steep driveway (as are most houses along Mark Lane), and near some beautiful hiking trails along the ocean.
The first thing you'll notice upon entering the house is its bright and cheerful quality, with large windows looking out on the water on all 3 levels. The downstairs includes the kitchen and living area facing west and with a high ceiling that keeps the house bright even on darker days. The furniture is clean and comfortable throughout, and the house is wonderfully stocked with everything you need for either a short or longer stay. We particularly liked the tasteful and understated elegance of the decorating scheme, which adds to the overall cheerful quality. We would prefer a king-size bed to the master bedroom and a larger flat-screen TV in the living room with HD instead of SD reception.
Overall, the house has a vibe that says the owners really care about the place and want their guests to have a pleasant stay without complications. It is about 20 minutes from shopping and restaurants, about 30 from Victoria to the south and Sydney to the north. Victoria is a stunningly beautiful place to visit, easy to get around, lush and green and flowering almost everywhere and the ocean all around you. Check out Victoria's amazing bakeries and seafood restaurants as you explore the city and the peninsula. We rent ocean-side properties quite frequently, and it's without reservation that we can recommend "The Cottage" as one of the best homes and locations we've ever discovered. Three cheers to the owners for the care and consideration in offering their home to us!"

"We stayed at this property for several days while sightseeing in Victoria BC and couldn't have been more pleased. The location was within walking distance of many of the sites of the Inner Harbor and it was less than a block to walk along the ocean front. There was off street parking so we often left the car parked and walked into the Inner Harbor area. We found the property to be clean, well decorated, cozy and well decorated. The owner was very helpful in answering our questions and giving us recommendations for places to eat and go sightseeing. If we were in the Victoria area again we would certainly stay here."
