About Jane Robson

I am a retired school teacher with 2 grandchildren whom I enjoy playing golf with. I love to work in the extensive gardens.

Jane Robson purchased this house in 1997

Why Jane Robson chose Victoria

I enjoy peace and quiet and this location is extra special for that.

What makes this house unique

I enjoy gardening and frequently take walks along the waterway. You can step off this property and be in the park. The feeling here is like living in the country but am within a 10 minute walk to all amenities.

Beautiful Victoria Flat

  • 5 of 5

This rental was absolutely beautiful, right on a waterfront park where you could walk, watch the water birds, play on the playground with your kids, or paddle around the inlet in the canoe provided with the rental. The hot tub and fireplace were highlights of our stay here. In a quiet neighborhood removed from the hustle and bustle, but it was easy to find and close enough to drive to downtown in 10-15 minutes. Our hostess was gracious and she truly thought of everything; the flat was well-appointed and scrupulously clean. The price is a downright bargain compared to others I looked at in Victoria. Would definitely recommend.

Great stay at Shoaling Waters

  • 4 of 5

We had a great 5 day stay at Jane's duplex right on the water in Victoria. The kids enjoyed watching the ducks and swans swimming in the water right outside the window. I only used the hot tub once but it was nice to have. It was a quiet spot in a convenient location for us with grocery stores just a few minutes drive away. We would definitely stay here again.

Great space, family friendly

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Jane's place! Tonnes of space and lots of light, all essentials were provided. We really appreciated the playpen and high chair for our one year old. Beautiful views of the gorge, and right by a lovely park and playground. We spent one rainy evening cozied up by the wood fireplace, and another relaxing outside in the hot tub. Stay here - you won't be disappointed!

Wonderful cozy accomodations near downtown

  • 4 of 5

Property is situated convenient to downtown at the end of a cul de sac with a nice water view; didn't make it over to the park/garden due to weather, but it'd be a lovely walk.

The duplex apartment is comfortable and very functional; bring dvds to play! Appreciated having the kitchen for meals.

Beds and linens were comfortable as was the bathroom.

Would definitely book here again.

I could spend hours looking out the window of this beautifully located vacation rental! Pure delight

  • 5 of 5

This location is absolutely unique - while you are in the middle of a busy city and only minutes from downtown, the quiet and nighttime darkness speak of a rural retreat. The ever changing view of the tidal estuary and accompanying wild life provided us with endless entertainment. My husband and I stayed for a month during winter and took daily advantage of the nearby walking paths and park. Our visiting granddaughter loved the proximity of the children's playground and Japanese garden just across the foot bridge. The apartment is large and the living room with wood burning fireplace is extremely comfortable. There is a patio hot tub that looks out on the waterway and our host Jane was always friendly and accommodating. While this is not luxury accommodation in terms of furnishings and appliances, that is easily overlooked because of the sublime location and overall comfort. I should add the apartment was spotless upon arrival. We'd love to come back anytime of the year!

Car: not necessary

I supply a canoe for you to enjoy. The 17 acre Esquimalt Gorge Park is a few meters away. Besides the beautiful walk along the waterfront there is an outstanding Japanese Garden complete with goldfish. There is a UVic sponsored, hands on ocean experience in the park. There is a playground close by. From your patio you have a very quiet view of the ocean and park. The hot tub also is a bonus to relax you. A great place to

unwind after a day of sight seeing.
