Clean, bright and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The place was very clean and bright and well appointed. Having the sun room attached to the kitchen was a nice bonus especially in the mornings. The location so close to James Bay was convienient for walks by the sea and an easy drive to the main harbour area. We enjoyed our stay.

This is a beautiful, roomy, quiet, and comfortable place with all the amenities you could want. Very conveniently located just 1 km from the Victoria harbor--and just across the street from the Holland Point Park and waterfront trail. The owner, Mike, is super friendly and made sure we had everything we need for our stay. Two big thumbs up! Highly recommend!

Booked this rental in January for July dates and paid with credit card

  • 3 of 5

Unfortunately, the owner emailed after several weeks informing us that our selected dates were unavailable. We were quite disappointed - wish we would have known this before we paid for it. We were refunded most of the money back to our credit card, but not the entire balance. I'm not sure why we suffered a penalty through no fault of our own. I'm sure it's a lovely rental, due to the positive reviews. Just make sure to confirm and re-confirm with the owners regarding the availability BEFORE paying for it.

Owner's Response: I have contacted VRBO. The refund is issued in two parts. You have received CAN$1,305.00 which is the rental amount of CAN$1,405.25 - $101.25 service fee. The service fee has been processed by VRBO in the amount of CAN$101.25 which you should receive next week.
