About the Property
Large 850 sq ft suite in historical home-walk to town and ocean, pet friendly
This suite (#1) is a very spacious one bedroom suite with approx. 850 sq feet. There are 1 1/2 bathrooms, a full-sized living room and formal dining area. It was built from the main section of the house and features high ceilings, pillars, stained glass and hardwood floors.
The suite is fully furnished and has a queen sized bed and a pull-out couch in the living room. Suitable for short-term or long-term stays.
Sit outside and enjoy the temperate climate in a garden patio or on a wrap-around covered veranda featuring a propane BBQ. You can smell the ocean in the air.
Your well-behaved and non-aggressive pet is welcome here--each suite has a fenced-in area and a doggie door.
The home is located in a quiet neighbourhood within walking distance of downtown (20 min walk), everyday shopping needs (5 min walk), and a scenic oceanside walkway (10 min walk) that travels around the inner harbour. If you like cycling, we are a 5 min ride to the Galloping Goose Trail. If you don't feel like walking, a cab ($10 CDN) can get you most downtown tourist attractions. Or catch the harbour ferry (10 min walk to the closest stop).
Send an inquiry if you have questions. We look forward to hearing from you.

Year Purchased: 2016
About the owner: Over the years I have enjoyed entertaining friends and family in my homes. Collecting and decorating with antiques has also been a passion of mine. So you can imagine when I was presented with the opportunity to purchase this amazing 1907 Heritage house.....I just couldn't say no! Hillcrest House is full of charm and beauty as well as history, being one of the oldest homes in the community. I have made it my mission to carry on with my passion for hostessing and offer the best hospitality I can for all my welcome guests!
Why the Owner Chose Victoria West, Victoria, BC, Canada:
I grew up on the prairies enduring cold winters. Five years ago my son, Quinn and I decided we'd had enough, packed up our standard poodles and moved to Victoria. We have never looked back and never regretted it! Besides the fabulous weather here, ocean and mountain views, there is of course plenty of original Heritage architecture, all of which we enjoy every day living here. Hillcrest House offers convenience of location, nice views, and Heritage charm and comfort. The area is great for touring, walking and biking.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Hillcrest House is a pet friendly home uniquely divided into 3 suites each with their own deck, patio area and fenced yard. We welcome your well behaved pets and look forward to your next stay with us here at Hillcrest House!
