Beautiful house in central location

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful and spacious. It was very comfortable for our family of 7, all adults. The location perfect in central Saanich. Easy to get to Victoria and nearby Sidney. It has a great private balcony where we could relax after a busy day. We'll come again :-)

Lovely home, good location

  • 4 of 5

My family of four enjoyed our two night stay at "Castle in the Sky." It is apparent that the owner has spent time caring for the home; the woodwork is beautiful. We were a bit put off by all the instructive labels but having read the reviews, we were expecting it. Our two teenage boys loved the pool table. The home would benefit from some soft touches such as curtains and rugs in some rooms to absorb sound and filter light. The master bedroom was very bright in the morning, making it difficult to sleep in, although sleeping masks were provided. The kitchen was well equipped. The home is a short drive to a grocery store, 3 minutes from Butchart Gardens, about 1/2 hour from Victoria, and about 20 minutes from Sidney. Overall, I recommend this property.

Great location for a Sidney wedding

  • 4 of 5

This was a lovely home. The pre check-in was thorough and there were no problems on arrival. The kitchen was well stocked although we did not prepare much food. The bedrooms were comfortable. The master bedroom is spacious and the bathroom great. There are no blinds or curtains so the morning sun wakes you quite early. There are eye shades to wear if you would like. The other two bedrooms have curtains which are frayed which was a contrast to the remainder of the home.

The sofa bed was slightly uncomfortable and could use a memory foam topper.

A lovely place to spend a few hours on the weekend!

Owner's Response: Hi Mathew, I am grateful you took the time to write a review. Thank you for your suggestions. In regard to the master bedroom blinds. I really enjoy the sky both at night and in the morning, so blinds have never been a priority for me, however moving forward it is a consideration. The frayed curtains in the other two bedrooms could use replacement. Memory foam for the sofa bed is a good idea, as well. Best of luck, look forward to seeing you again.

excellent proximity to Butchart Garden and Butterfly Garden.

No amenity was missing in the home.

Landlord was conscientious to our needs.

Perfect house for 3 couples. We kayaked, watched whales and dined!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home is tucked away in the trees on a hilltop. Very quiet and private and wonderfully equipped. The master suite is very nice. If you want to combine a trip to Butchart Gardens with ocean kayaking, whale watching and a spa experience, this spot is perfect. A great walking trail down to the shore was within walking distance too!

It really is a castle in the Sky

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived we were very pleasantly surprised. So clean and tidy with everything we needed - comfort, quiet and access to wherever we needed to go.

The area is perfect for relaxing and the house lends to a very comfortable stay. Having the full sized BBQ made a difference as we used that quite a bit too.

The views from the master bedroom are excellent when the weather allows.

The beds are super comfy and a great touch is the pool table. That was certainly put to good use.

If we get the opportunity - we would LOVE to stay here again.
