Cute suite in a nice neighbourhood

  • 3 of 5

The suite was clean and had almost everything you need for making your own meals. Bedroom is upstairs which is a bit inconvenient for folks our age ;). The BBQ is need if repair or replacement and the toaster oven could use an update as well. Location in the Fernwood neighbourhood is convenient for most places you want to go in Victoria. WiFi was hard to connect to and a bit slow, but usable. Maggi was very nice and certainly respected our privacy.

Quiet,great location and pet friendly!

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy staying at this property in Victoria. We were able to check in as soon as we arrived in Victoria in the morning rather than after 3pm like most hotels. The cottage has everything you need for your stay and was very comfortable for 2 adults and 1 small dog. The deck and yard make this cottage seem like your own place. Maggie is a great host and even though she lives right next to the cottage you don't notice because she leaves her guests alone but she is available if needed.

You can walk to town in about 20 minutes and there are several little parks within walking distance. A nice grocery store is in Hillside about a mile away. We will be back to stay again.

Quiet garden suite in Fernwood

  • 4 of 5

The unit is quiet and clean and within walking distance of the Belfry Theatre and Fernwood community. The suite is situated in a lovely yard with lots of birds to observe.

Winter Visit

  • 3 of 5

Maggi is friendly and most willing to supply anything you need. The cottage looks like the photos. The layout is sweet with the upstairs bedroom. We were plenty warm during our December stay. We could cook if we wanted or go out to the many good restaurants in Victoria. The bathroom and kitchen were clean. You can walk to Inner Harbour and downtown, however it will take you a while. It is not exactly a walking distance place, but it is close to everything by car. We visited the Craigdarroch Castle, downtown, Cook Street Village and took long walks along beautiful Dallas Road. There is always a place to park in front of the cottage on the street. The neighborhood is lovely and super quiet. I can imagine that it is lovely in the summer, being on the garden and opening windows. The cottage had a stale smell that lingered on our clothes after we left which prompts the three stars . I am sure that will go away once a good deep spring cleaning happens.

Quiet location, great week!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week this summer with 3 adults and our tiny Papillion and found it to be a great location to get away from the "city" but close enough for sightseeing and shopping. Fenced yard so the puppy could explore. Clean and comfortable with all the necessary amenities, including a cork screw. Situated half way between downtown Victoria and Oak Bay we were able to see both and still take some excursions to the lighthouse, butterfly garden and Cordova Bay. A little far to walk to the sites but not bad if you are fairly fit. Owner is a great hostess but not intrusive. We will definitely check this location for availability next time we go to Victoria.

Lovely spot in quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our dog spent the long Christmas weekend at Maggi's. Was great to have a yard to let the dog sniff around - squirrel!- in addition to all the dog parks in Victoria. Enjoyed the quiet of the neighborhood and walking distance to so many perfect spots - Parsonage for coffee, Fernwood Inn for drinks, Stage wine bar for small plates and wine. We actually didn't even go into Victoria much, the weather was so good we hiked every day. The place had everything we needed. Perfect!
