Victoria Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cottage for a year as part of a move from Calgary. It's location was excellent being a half block from the ocean, two blocks from a good grocery store and shopping area and a 15-20 minute walk from downtown and the inner harbour. The James Bay area is lovely with many heritage homes and beautiful trees and gardens. The cottage was quaint, comfortable and reasonably equipped with a nicely landscaped yard front and back. The owner (Winnie) was very welcoming and attentive. I would recommend this property for a vacation and would stay again.

The Cottage by the Ocean

  • 5 of 5

We spent the month of August in The Cottage and enjoyed it very much. The James Bay location is perfect - one block from the ocean walkway and two blocks the other way to the grocery and other stores in the James Bay shopping center. The house is charming, comfortable and very well equipped with everything you need for a relaxing vacation. It was a real joy getting to know Winnie. She was so welcoming, helpful and responsive to all our needs and questions. We would definitely recommend The Cottage to anyone visiting Victoria.

Comfort in Ideal Location

  • 5 of 5

I spent the month of May in The Cottage and enjoyed this comfortable and well equipped home. An easy walking location to groceries, coffee, drug store, book store, etc.a block ways, as well a short half block to Dallas Road and oceanview walking. James Bay is my favourite place to stay when in Victoria visiting my daughter and family. This character house had the comforts of home (including comfortable bed) for me after a long day with newborn and two year old grandchildren. It is well kept and has a lovely back garden for sunny days. Was able to cook and serve family meals in the well equipped kitchen. Also like being able to park my car off the street in the driveway. I hope to be back someday.

The Cottage by the ocean in Victoria BC

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at "The Cottage" in Victoria BC. My husband and I stayed for the month of March along with my 88 year old mother who also enjoyed it very much. It was very clean and comfortable. The beds were very comfortable also, and the kitchen was well equipped. We were able to host several dinner parties with friends. The location was convenient for shopping and walks to the ocean and other activities. We enjoyed daily walks and bike rides along the ocean.

Winnie, our host, welcomed us warmly and was always available if we had any questions while we were first settling in. I would definitely go back! Thank you Winnie for sharing your cottage with us!

Cozy cottage by the sea

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for the month of February. Winnie was very welcoming and helpful; she was responsive to any of our needs or questions. The house was spotless and well equipped. It's location was ideal for walking along the ocean or going into town. It was also just a couple of blocks away from an excellent grocery store, pharmacy, walk-in clinic, coffee shops and small restaurants. I highly recommend this house/ apartment to friends and family and certainly will try to stay here for any future trips to Victoria.
