Why Paul Hammer chose Saanich East
I love this area of Victoria, it is so convenient to everywhere in Victoria your only 8 mins from DT, Shopping, U-Vic, easy access to Airport, Main Land Ferries and Seattle, USA, Up island highway, yet the properties have big lot's and huge trees. Well Established Neighborhood. Heritage Park and Dead End Street, great location to walking trails.
What makes this House unique
I really enjoy the peace and quiet of the area, traffic is local, south facing private back yard, huge trees provide privacy, well established neighborhood, centrally located, convenient, love the warm, spacious rooms of the house. Love the private Hydrotherapy Tub and Wet Steam Room, especially on a cold or wet day/night. House is laid out so that bedrooms are private from the rest of the house. Great for entertaining. Large windows,and big rooms.

Enjoyed our 3 nights at Paul's place. Kitchen is super well stocked, the beds and bedding are beautiful. Lots of bathrooms plus access to a beautiful outside patio - was a super weekend. Only reason for 4 stars not 5 was that I believe the listing shows A/C and the unit actually does not have it. Wasn't problem with windows open and beautiful breezes at night keeping the place nice and cool.
Unique, well equipped property. Comfortable.
Paul was very welcoming. Albert even more so. House was charming and unique. Odd in some respects but comfortable. Everything one would need. WC in one bedroom is small but all others are spacious and there is a large walk-in shower on ground floor. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Judge Place, Victoria, and Vancouver Island.
Very welcoming, comfortable atmosphere. Paul was very kind and helpful!
Highly recommend! Paul is a great host, very kind and knowledgeable of the area. House was very comfortable and welcoming.
Perfect Adult House
We loved staying here. It is in a nice location in a neighborhood, and close to downtown. We had three couples and each of us had a bedroom with a bathroom in our room. The house is full of antiques but very comfortable. Paul has thought of everything you would need is in the house. Even a washer and dryer. He has a lovely backyard with comfortable seating, that you can enjoy. We highly recommend this home.
Everything looked after
Paul is a very accommodating host
We (3 couples) really enjoyed our stay in Victoria and at this property. Everything was clearly labeled & Paul was there to add personal instructions especially for the quirky kitchen smoke alarm. Everything was just as described. The only thing I could change is in the bathroom of Garry Oaks. It would be extremely helpful if there was some place in the shower to place soap, shampoo & wash cloth. As it was, we used the ledge of the wall molding to rest the soap & shampoo, & door handle for the wash cloth. A shorter person would not have had the ledge as an option. I can't speak to the other 2 bedrooms that were used during our visit. Parking was good & access to Netflix was a real plus.
