“Welcome home” to Wallace House, a vacation rental suite located between Victoria and Sidney in beautiful Saanichton.

We have views across the farm land to the ocean, Gulf Islands and Mount Baker. Our guests can walk to a local beach in about 20 minutes.

Our vacation suite has over 1,100 square feet of comfortable living, suitable for couples or families, up to four people.

About Kirk and Gloria Robinson

Your hosts, Kirk and Gloria, moved here from the Vancouver area in 2006 to retire. We are really enjoying the laid-back Island life. We have been married for 37 years and our children and grandchild live in Victoria. We enjoy walking on the local trails and Kirk has bicycled all over the Peninsula.

Kirk and Gloria Robinson purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Kirk and Gloria Robinson chose Victoria

We love the country location and ocean views on our half-acre rural property. We enjoy all the walking trails and bike routes in the area and can walk to a beach in about 30 minutes. We have arbutus and Douglas Fir trees, with rabbits, eagles, quail and deer spotted regularly. We have feeders for the hummingbirds, and see lots of other species as well.

What makes this apartment unique

Our guests can easily walk to Saanichton Village for groceries, restaurants and other amenities. Our suite is very large with 2 bedrooms, a private entrance and off-road parking. There is a private lawn with patio set to enjoy the view and gardens.

Guestbook comments from the owner

An amazing and homely suite - it has all the lovely touches that make it feel like home. Everything is thought of that makes you feel you're staying with friends rather than an impersonal hotel chain. Gloria & Kirk, thanks for making our family feel so welcome. It has been so lovely to relax for a few days and the suite is so large and the breakfast is also a lovely bonus - the jam & muffins were a treat! I will tell everyone in Australia about your lovely suite - and we will be back in a few years!

Great hosts, quiet location

  • 5 of 5

A nice quiet rural location yet close to Sidney, the airport and ferries and 20-30 minutes to downtown Victoria. A car is a must. Kirk and Gloria are extraordinary hosts, genuinely friendly and helpful. The "starter pack" of homemade muffins, jam, etc. is a nice touch!

Great location and friendly hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent four night at the Wallace home. Kirk and Gloria made us feel more than welcome. The fridge and cupboards were stocked with some essentials like muffins and peanut butter :)

Lots of information was shared with things to do and places to eat. Terrific location, close to everything!

Thanks again for a great stay, would recommend to anyone!

Spacious, clean, comfortable. Gloria and Kirk were so friendly and helpful!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience. Gloria and Kirk are gracious hosts--friendly, accommodating, and helpful! There was plenty of space for the three of us that stayed, and we found the accommodations to be comfortable, clean, and homey. The location was perfect for us, as it is close to the cidery, and about 20 mins drive to downtown Victoria. Overall, we very much enjoyed our stay.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful, friendly, helpful hosts. Beautiful property off the beaten path but within easy driving distance of Victoria, Sidney, etc. Kirk and Gloria had outfitted the suite with everything we could have hoped for and more (like Gloria's delicious muffins). We will be back.
