About the Property
House, 2 Bedrooms + Detached Unit, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
A convenient location - many people in James Bay do not own a car. The bus stop for downtown is 2 blocks away; the return from downtown bus stop is 1 block away. You can connect to all locations of Greater Victoria from downtown.
With approximately a 10 minute walk you will be:
at the downtown shops; bus terminal, Victoria Clipper and The Coho ferry
At the Cook Street Village across the park or in the community of James Bay with grocery stores, banks, dry cleaners, and a liquor store
Fisherman’s Wharf famous for fish and chips and the colourful floathomes
For cycling enthusiasts, walkers or gardeners, this location is most desirable:
Bicycle storage space is available
Dallas Road, a leisurely cycle along the Victoria waterfront is at your 'doorstep'
Access the Galloping Goose Trail within 5-10 minutes leading to either The West Shore or Sooke or north to The Saanich Peninsula and the BC Ferry Terminal at Swartz Bay. Both trails are part of The Trans Canada Trail
A short 5-minute walk to the south will bring you to the locals favourite walking spot - The Dallas Road Walkway with panoramic views of The Straits of Juan de Fuca and The Olympic Mountains. Walk the Victoria waterfront and view seals, sea lions, whales, herons, otters, eagles and many sea birds.
Victoria is known for its beautiful gardens:
Beacon Hill Park - 200 acres of beautifully landscaped and manicured grounds complete with bridges, lakes and ponds, an alpine rock garden, and a spectacular rose garden, is at your doorstep
Abkahzi Gardens - an exquisite heritage home and garden (with a truly romantic story) is a 10-minute drive
Playfair Park (a secret hidden garden in Saanich, famous for Rhododendrons) can be reached in 10 minutes
Hatley Park Gardens on the grounds of Royal Roads University is a 20-minute drive from The Woodbury Vacation Rental Apartments
Finnerty Gardens, the 'unknown gardens' of The University of Victoria, is a 15 minute drive
The Government House, home of the Governor General, with spectacular gardens, is about 8 minutes away

Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: My husband, Jack, and I have lived in most areas of Victoria over the past 25 years and have found that James Bay is the perfect place to live. We love walking on the Dallas Road waterfront, through Beacon Hill Park or into the middle of the city to shop or visit our favourite restaurants. Both James Bay Village and nearby Cook Street Village afford wonderful places to browse, eat or sit and watch the world go by. We enjoy traveling and meeting new people. When away from home, we have found that we are happiest when we can have a comfortable 'home base'; somewhere we can unwind for extended periods of time and can avoid daily interruptions from housekeeping staff or the need to eat out three times a day. We have recently purchased this property from Josie (mentioned in the reviews) and we are excited about offering the same experience to you.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Located in James Bay close to the park and walkways, you can stay here without a vehicle. Amenities are all within a 10 minute walk, grocery, pharmacy, clinics, liquor stores, etc.
