About the Property
2000 sqft 3bdrm+ house with Private Lakefront Yard, close to Downtown Victoria.
We have 2 gorgeous lakefront homes located only minutes from Downtown Victoria on beautiful Langford Lake. They are located next-door to each other but are separated by a custom wood fence, for maximum privacy.
This charming house is a great place to spend some time enjoying the fishing , swimming , or just relaxing watching all the wildlife and boaters (no gas engines) pass by your lawn chair.
It is the oldest VRBO listed rental in Victoria, and has been enjoyed by hundreds of people over the last 16 years.
Only 5-10 minutes from Royal Roads University, It is situated at the end of a quiet dead-end road,that leads into a wooded walking trail. The house is only steps from lakeside, sunny exposure, very private , great swimming and fishing from the yard. The kitchen is equipt with full size stove, fridge, microwave, dishwasher, lots of small appliances, dishes, pot/pans etc. There are 3 comfortable bedrooms with queen size beds, all beds have good quality linens, there is 1 full bathroom with a tub/shower, and 1 full bathroom with a shower. The house also has a full size laundry room.
** New in 2014 we have added Twin Bunk Beds. These Bunks are in a private corner of the house and are perfect for kids or adults (max 6'2').
Also new is a gas fireplace Lakeside for fun evenings by the lake.
Downstairs is a large games room overlooking the lake, there is a double futon couch ,its a great place to relax or play a game of ping pong,. The room leads out onto a private covered sitting area overlooking the lake....'a great BBQ spot'.. The lake front is a private yard with great sitting and lounging areas, plus you have your own dock, a boat for your use, and Gas fire pit. We also have a swimming float anchored out front.
CHECK OUT OUR OTHER EXECUTIVE LAKE HOUSE with HOT TUB, NEXT DOOR. VRBO.com/394180
The one constant comment weve had on our lakefront houses is that they are in a perfect locations, only minutes from all the city has to offer, but in a quiet location where you can come and relax. Its'the best of both worlds'. Only minutes from your door are local shops, restuarants, pubs,casino,theatre, and malls.
The other side of the lake is park land and you can hike it by a boardwalk at the end of the road. Langford Lake has excellent swimming, trout and bass fishing, with fish caught up to 9lbs! or just relax and watching the sunsets across the lake. There are no gas motors allowed on the lake, so its a great place for rowing around (boat provided). Goldstream River Provincial Park is only five minutes away by car, the park has excellent hiking and walking, waterfall viewing, and salmon spawning in the fall.
The great thing about these houses is you can enjoy the country, but can be in the heart of the city within 15 minutes. There is cosmopolitan dining, superb shopping, world class museum, salmon fishing, whale watching, Butchard Gardens and the wild and beautiful pacific coast beaches surrounding the house. Also there are 3 top golf courses, Casino, movies, water park, kids park etc. within five to ten minutes of the house.
Our lake houses are a great family vacation spot, but they are also very popular with couples or friends traveling together. We try too have everything that you need here for a special holiday.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Year Purchased: 2001
About the owner: My wife and I come from families that have resided in Victoria for over 100 years. We have lived on langford lake since 2001, and in this area for over 40 years. We also own a local family business.
Why the Owner Chose Victoria, BC, Canada:
We purchased this house ,and the one next door in 2001. At the time we owned a vacation home on the gulf islands, and we wanted to live full time on a lake. When these homes came up for sale we knew that we had found our dream location to live. We renovated both homes and have lived here ever since. Langford lake is a perfect place to live, as its only minutes from the city, but when your here it seems like your way out in the country. The fact that we can fish, swim and boat from our yard doesnt hurt either! This House is the Oldest Victoria Listing on VRBO.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
When you stay here you are close to everything , but in a great getaway that lets you relax and enjoy the lake and nature.The walking trail just down the street, is a great feature that alows you to walk around the lake. We constantly have bald eagles, otters , mink , ducks , geese , swans and more around our yard. Langford lake has some of the best bass and trout fishing on the south island. One thing we have always loved here is the fact that there are no gas motors allowed on the lake, this makes it much more enjoyable as your not being buzzed by jet skis and big boats. From this house you have everything from fine dining, a casino, ocean beaches, shopping, a provincial park and several major golf courses all within 5-15 minutes away. No matter what your interests you'll find its not far from here.
