From Avalon you can stroll Beacon Hill Park only 4 houses away, storm watch overlooking the beaches only ten minutes walk away or wander downtown- again,only a ten minute walk away. None of the noise but all of the proximity. Sample the gourmet treats in Cook Street Village with it's bakeries, wood fired pizzerias and cozy coffee shops. Workout in the mornings at home on the deck or at nearby facilities and spend your afternoons touring the Royal Museum,shops, Victoria art galleries and more . Ride the horse drawn tours of this unique neighborhood.At night you can walk to the Royal theater for symphony or ballet.
Our home is located on a quiet cul-de-sac in unique Heritage zone, across from the famous James Bay Inn pub, Thrifty's grocery store, sports facilities and many local bus routes.
Only 4 houses to the airport shuttle and very close to heliport, float plane and Cruise Line port of call at Augden Point.
You'll find everything you'll need is supplied in mint condition with up-to-date modern appliances.
UPSTAIRS: Romantic master suite is large and unique with fireplace and new king bed.
It is cool in the summer and has both blinds and curtains for a quiet and blackout effect if needed.

The reading area outside the bedroom with skylight doubles as a luxurious laundry folding area as it is adjacent to washer and dryer conveniently located near the bedroom.
The outdoor deck has been glass enclosed and is under an awning.
It has a large enough floor space for exercise -stationary bike , ball, weights and yoga mat are provided plus there is a large sofa overlooking the garden for morning coffee or afternoon tea in the trees.

The kitchen has everything including room for 6 seated around range and a bar height table with chairs fro two more.
The very special teak dining table is in the living area with a view of the garden and not the kitchen, which is better for more formal dining.

I prefer one long term renter for my ski season ideally November or December to end March. Minimum rental term is two weeks.
Summer rates are higher than winter and one month is the minimum term.
Jim is my property manager and is nearby in Victoria for any issues that may arise while you are here or if i am not available by phone nor email re rental.

Additional information about rental rates
- Refundable Damage Deposit $1,128.00
If you are Canadian - note that the posted rates are in USDollars
Jim or I will clarify the rates and request e transfer as method of payment
Americans cannot e transfer unfortunatley
A wire transfer in USD to my USD account is the easiest but note the damage deposit may not be the same on return depending on exchange rate fluctuations
eg if $1000 canadian is $800 american when you send it we will return $1000 canadian equivalent at the end of the term ..in the unlikely event our dollar goes up, you will get less than $800 USD back ..this is standard practice thx

About the owner: I am a single, retired lawyer who likes to travel when the house is rented and ski in the winter months Generally ,I'm here in Victoria in summer and consistently gone in the winter. My start and finish rental dates are very flexible I would prefer a single several month tenancy, ideally Nov. thru March or as late as May for ski season and rent will be reduced for longer term . My property manager Andrea will assist you this summer/fal as I cannot receive VRBO info abroad without a verification code sent to my phone which I will not have
Why the Owner Chose James Bay, Victoria, BC, Canada:
Having travelled the world and most of Canada, I feel that Victoria is the best city in Canada in which to live, B.C. the most stunningly beautiful province with nearby Vancouver consistently highly rated city in world polls and the Gulf Islands here to explore by ferry . Nothing compares to the relaxed pace, understated affluence and beauty of Victoria and environs. The Canadian political and economic climate are stable, the city is safe and geared for tourism.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
It is walking distance to a fabulous park ocean and Disney- like downtown The garden is a fabulous or bike inside the glass enclosed deck on the second floor
