About Owner

We are both music educators that live close by on the mainland and love to spend as much time as we can at our place on the island.

Owner purchased this House in 2002

Why Owner chose Central Saanich

This property has been in our family since 1967. In 2001 we decided to replace the original 400 square foot cottage and build a new family home. Since then we have been renting it as a vacation home that we also enjoy ourselves. One of the things we've found while renting our home is that people who visit our property want to return and repeat the experience. We are excited to be able to offer our place once again to families wanting a unique vacation home close to nature, but also close to Victoria, Sidney, and Brentwood Bay.

What makes this House unique

Our place is located in a small, quiet community that lets you feel like you are away from it all, yet you are a short 30 minutes away from Downtown Victoria. You are also 15 minutes away from the villages of Brentwood Bay and Saanichton. There are wonderful wineries,restaurants and gardens nearby, plus the added bonus of being on Saanich Peninsula where there are fresh and organic food stands and stalls throughout the area during the growing season. This place that our family has always called 'the Cottage' has been a wonderful summer and winter location to share family gatherings. While the adults are visiting on the main level or outside patio, the kids can be up in the loft playing video games , air hockey etc. Visitors also enjoy the water (some wetsuits provided) swimming, snorkelling and beachcombing. Every evening we have 'Sunset Ceremony' where we toast the sun as it sets behind the Malahat hills across the inlet. The cottage is a great place to retreat and reconnect with nature where you will likely see eagles, herons, seals, otters, and deer. A walk down the road will lead you to a regional park with more hiking trails, waterfalls and beaches to enjoy.

                                                    Excellent getaway!

                                                    Gwen K.Melville, Sk

                                                    Location is wonderful for a peaceful getaway. The waterfront views are beautiful especially from the deck of the upper level. The home is well equipped and dealing with the owners was a breeze. Three of us spent a lovely 4 weeks at the ‘cottage’ but there is easily room for a party of eight! Would not hesitate to recommend to those looking for a little seclusion.

                                                    A Perfect Place for our Girlfriends' Getaway

                                                    Susan S.

                                                    We are a group of five friends who have been going away together somewhere in British Columbia once a year for almost two decades. This house and environment was perfect for us, maybe the best yet. Lots of room for us to spread out in, lots of light, and even a few visiting "critters" (deer, sea lions and raccoons). It had the best-stocked kitchen we've ever encountered, something we really appreciated because we like to cook most of our own meals. The location on the water, and its proximity to a provincial park for walking made it ideal for us. Thank you for making such a great weekend possible!

                                                    Quiet, spacious "cottage", remote, inviting, and a treasured memory.

                                                    ALAN M.FOX ISLAND, WASHINGTON

                                                    Quiet, spacious "cottage", remote, inviting, and a treasured memory.

                                                    Dated kitchen appliances but superbly equipped, bathroom in master is a tiny shower, healthy drive to both Victoria and Sidney, loved the 3 levels of unparalleled views - bald eagles, orcas, birds in the trees at eye level, beautiful patio to enjoy wonderful wild life.

                                                    We will come again.

                                                    Beautiful home and location, which exceeded our expectations!

                                                    Kathy M.

                                                    We stayed at this home while traveling as a multigenerational family group. The home is well appointed and comfortable. Local attractions and activities were enjoyed by all. We were sad to leave!

                                                    We loved this place! It's well equipped for fun and offers breathtaking views from every angle.

                                                    Michelle M.

                                                    We saw deer on the road, starfish & jellyfish from the lower decks and so many birds in the treetops up close from the top decks. Being completely surrounded by nature is such a good feeling for the kids and adults alike.

                                                    The pictures on vrbo as well as our own photos do not do it justice.

                                                    Bonus: air hockey table, rowboat/life jackets and had a great workout running up/down the stairs outside.

                                                    Beautiful setting. Amazing view.

                                                    Brent L.

                                                    Right on the water. Very quiet and private.
