About the Property

Recently built ground floor suite in Character Home

The Gonzales Bay Beach House is a Character home built prior to 1900. It has been completely restored and now has 3 large apartments. Each of the original apartments has previously been a vacation rental property; they are now long term rentals.
Recently, I have completed a brand new apartment that I plan to rent on a short term basis when I am travelling in my motor home.
This architecturally designed ground floor apartment has a mud room/laundry room, one bedroom plus a TV loft; modern kitchen with new stainless appliances, quartz counter top; built in vacuum system and heated bathroom floor.
The exposed original brick chimneys and period lighting complement the modern open concept design and high end finishes. Many windows and doors let in light making it feel bright and airy even on dull days It is furnished with a combination of contemporary and antique furnishings. The wood stove will keep you warm and cozy during cool evenings. Outside there is a patio and garden area.
The Gonzales Bay Beach House is located along the main tourist route on the waterfront but is tucked away up a long driveway making it very private and quiet. Across the street is a lovely sandy beach that is a playground for children and dogs.
Oak Bay Village is a 20 minute walk to the east and Cook Street Village is a 20 minute walk to the west. Nearby are shops and grocery stores for your convenience.

Car: Not Necessary

Gonzales Bay is located along the waterfront between Victoria city centre and Oak Bay. It is a popular walking, cycling and driving route for tourists. There are many walking trails into hidden parks and open spaces for those who like to explore the ocean front. We are located in an micro climate that seems to get more sunshine. Often there are clouds in the surrounding mountains and hills, but sunny above our heads. People like to be outside here, so you will often meet the neighbours walking their dogs and marvel at the cyclists out training.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1985

About the owner: Five years ago I bought an older(1981) RV after retiring and rented out my large apartment. I took many trips on Vancouver Island and Washington state. Last year I bought a newer RV and now feel confident in travelling longer distances. I decided to build a new apartment downstairs for when I am in town. Now I have a gorgeous new apartment that you can enjoy while I travel the country.

Why the Owner Chose Gonzales, Victoria, BC, Canada:
The Gonzales neighbourhood has been my home for 30 years; I've seen many changes over that time. From a beach cottage community, Gonzales Bay has been transformed to an area of multi million dollar waterfront homes.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The community is very family friendly; with public and private schools within walking distance from the Beach House. A shopping centre with everything you need is close by; both Oak Bay Village and Cook street Village are within walking distance. Gonzales Beach is quiet in winter, but the beach of choice for many in the summer, a great place for children to play and dogs to run free.
