About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3-4)

Victoria is such a wonderful city: Friendly, safe, quiet, walkable and beautiful!

We've run a B&B for nine years, but have retired (again), and completely refurbished our guest space, to be self-contained, private and accessible.

We're just a 10-minute walk from Downtown and all amenities (restaurants, movies, pubs, museum, shopping, antique shops, galleries, bug zoo!), so guests often just park their vehicle and walk everywhere. Or rent bikes. But we're also three minutes walk from the 100-acre Beacon Hill Park, and 10 minutes from the beach.

We're happy to host small pets, and families.

And this is an ideal location for researchers needing access to the provincial archives or legislative library (Five minutes walk). Or people attending courses, conferences, workshops, or guest lecturing at the university (a 20-minute drive).

We prefer stays of a minimum of one week, but we're happy to offer reduced rates for long-term stays.

Extraordinary and Charming

  • 5 of 5

The Mansard House surpassed our fondest expectations. The hosts were welcoming and gracious, and let us arrive early on our arrival day and stay late on our day of departure. The suite (full of antiques!) was more than fully-equipped; generous in size, extremely clean, warm, with comfortable beds, and all the amenities we wanted. Even umbrellas to use. The adorable private entrance and tiny perfect front garden in bloom made the February visit from the prairies totally delightful.The location of the Mansard House is perfect - within walking distance of all our favourite spots. We have stayed at many private B&B's and airbnb's - this one is the best!

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We loved the time we spend there specially the kids with the cherry tree.

The location is more than convenient because is close to downtown and you have the beautiful Beacon hill park just there.

Excellent location if you are travelling with young ones!

Thanks You !!

Home Away from Home

  • 4 of 5

I loved spending time in this cozy suite. It was comfortable, full of charm and character, and is situated in a perfect location for walking. Best of all, the house (and the suite) offers a wonderful sense of place. Staying there, and walking the neighborhoods, you not only know you are in Victoria, but become a part of it during your stay. I look forward to returning.
