Said one guest...: 'A Little Slice Of Heaven' 'My husband and I have been to Victoria on numerous occasions. We both agreed that this was our best trip ever! This lovely cottage is truly a 'little slice of heaven.' The setting was simply gorgeous and extremely tranquil. We loved sitting on the sun deck, listening to the waterfall and enjoying a glass of wine, especially after a long day of bike riding on one of the many glorious trails that Victoria has to offer. The cottage was adorable and so comfortable. Thank you for providing such a special 'home away from home.' We absolutely will be back!!'

Family friendly place

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the house plenty. The layout and space was nice and useful for our two families. Being close to the bus line was very useful for getting downtown. Looking forward to coming back in the summer to enjoy the garden.

Comfortable, clean, convenient

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable, very clean, very convenient to downtown and to groceries, but it’s a long walk to downtown. However, if you have a car it only takes 5-10 minutes to get downtown, and parking is available and inexpensive. It was the perfect place for our party of 6 adults and a baby - they even had toys, books, and a high chair! Thanks, Amie, for good communication and an easy check in process.

Conmfortable, clean, well appointed!

  • 5 of 5

We very much appreciated our stay at this house. The hosts are very friendly and easy to deal with, they made sure her on several occasions to make sure we had everything we needed. The bathrooms are spacious, the laundry works well, the beds are comfortable, and the backyard is a small paradise in the city.
