About Norma Strachan

Allan and Norma are recently retired and looking forward to welcoming people from around the world to their new ocean view apartment. Allan immigrated from Scotland as a young man and worked as a construction superintendent for several respected developers. Norma had a rewarding career in the non profit sector. They have travelled extensively to Australia. New Zealand and the U.K.

Why Norma Strachan chose Victoria

We love our home because of the unique combination of views of the ocean, the old growth forest across the street on the grounds of Royal Roads University, and the Coastal Mountains on the mainland featuring Mount Baker on a clear day. In the summer, we watch the cruise ships dock across the harbour. Esquimalt Lagoon is a 5 minute walk away with a long spit for walking and birdwatching.

What makes this apartment unique

We are very near to Royal Roads University, Juan de Fuca Rec Centre and Victoria General Hospital..

Very Pleasant Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

fully furnished suite with all the amenities and large windows to enjoy the awesome view (oh, those sunrises!!!!) , conveniently located but very quiet,

Norma and Allan are very nice and give you plenty of privacy, but are there when you need anything.

We just spent two weeks there and would love to stay there again on our next visit to lovely Victoria, B.C.!

We very much enjoyed our stay in Victoria. Our accommodations were excellent! Our hosts, Norma and Allan, made us very comfortable and cared for our every need and request. They are the best! The apartment is well appointed and has just about everything necessary to enjoy a stay. When we are back in Victoria, we hope to stay with Norma and Allan again. We would rate this accommodation "the best"!

Brand-new, modern, comfortable, quiet, clean, friendly

  • 5 of 5

This is a newly remodeled suite. Everything is immaculately clean, thoughtfully appointed, and very comfortable. Allan and Norma are lovely people who are very responsive and yet never hovering. The neighborhood is a beautiful quiet older neighborhood with easy access from Metchosin Road. It's only 15-20 minutes or so to get downtown. Also you are right around the corner from Royal Roads University and the Hatley Castle featuring the beautiful royal gardens that are not to be missed! Gorgeous and uncrowded! From The living room you have a nice view of Esquimalt lagoon. I tend to be fairly picky when it comes to accommodations. I was very comfortable and would return.

There is a fabulous view from the front window just as the pictures show. Norma was a wonderful hostess - very prompt to respond to any questions we had and willing to provide anything extra we needed for our visitors. We are looking forward to returning again.
