About Jan

I am a single mother of three who works in nursing. I have lived in Victoria for 35 years and I love to travel. I enjoy meeting new people and experiencing new cultures, and I try to bring my experiences back home to Victoria with me.

Why Jan chose Victoria

I have been privalged to live in the heart of Victoria for 35 wonderful years, and I truly believe it is one of the most beautiful places in the world. As such, I designed my vacation rental to be able to share the beauty of Victoria with others.

What makes this house unique

One of my favorite things to do in James Bay is to take a stroll down Dallas Road to view the many cruise ships that dock just down the street from this property. In addition to the breath taking ocean views, Dallas Road offers a chance to socialize with other travellers as well as an opportunity to enjoy some of the worlds most beautiful sunsets.

Great Stay, Great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Jemna's house and it was able to accommodate all 8 of us (4 adults and 4 kids). The house has a great layout and the location has so many perks. Close to a grocery store and so close to the ocean and Inner harbor. Some other attractions are about a 15 mins walk (Beacon Hill Park, Leg Grounds). The place is well maintained and fully stocked. Jemna was very helpful throughout the whole process and she is close by!

Jemna's home was just perfect for our family time in Victoria. it was comfortable & a great location

  • 5 of 5

The James Bay home is about 1/2 block off of the sweeping views of the ocean on Dallas Rd. The Thrifty's and Starbucks were also about a 5 minute walk. We had 2 infants, a toddler, 2 moms and grandma so we had a lot of stuff. The house afforded us all a bedroom, a washroom and laundry facility so it was really super. Because of the kids, we mostly prepared our own food which was easy in such a well stocked kitchen. The backyard is nicely set up with a dining table, BBQ and is well manicured. Jemna was really helpful too. Great location, close to everything & surrounded by beauty. Wouldn't hesitate to go back again. Thank you Jemna!

Fantastic Location! Mins from the Ocean and Inner Harbour - Very Clean and Well Maintained A+++

  • 5 of 5

Me and my guests stayed here for a week last year and it was the best decision we made. The Location was absolutely perfect and couldn't have asked for a better one, so close to everything it was less than a 5 min drive to Downtown Victoria/ Inner Harbour and less than a 5 min walk to the Ocean at James Bay. It is also a less then a 5 min walk from the cruise ships. The House was very clean and spacious and there is also a private driveway for multiple cars for anyone who rents a vehicle. Jan was a great a host, very helpful and courteous and easy to reach when needed. I would highly recommend this place to anyone that is looking to stay close to Downtown Victoria and also be close to the Ocean. I will definitely be staying here again when I'm back in town. Great Place! Great Location A+++

Amazing location in a beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for 3 nights for a getaway from Vancouver. First off this home is in the most amazing location! We took the bus from the ferry to downtown and the bus terminal was a ten minute walk away from the house past the beautiful parliament buildings and the inner harbour. The home was clean and spacious just as it looks in the photos. There is no real need to have a car because downtown Victoria is only a short 10 or 15 minute walk away, however if you do bring one there's a private driveway with room for a couple cars. Our hostess was able to direct us to some great restaurants and was very welcoming. This place is half a block from the beach in a quiet neighborhood. Really you couldn't ask for a better spot. We will definitely stay here again next time we get the chance!

Dream Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented this property to attend a friends wedding on the island, and we could not have made a better choice! The house itself was beautiful, very clan and we'll kept. It has a great homey feeling and plenty of space for all of us. In addition to that the location was perfect- just a few steps from the ocean and short beautiful walk to the downtown center. We arrived later than originally planned and the homeowner was so gracious and welcoming, which we really appreciated. Can't wait to come to the island- hopefully this will be our annual getaway!

The Best!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent 10 days in this beautiful home and had a wonderful experience, not only due to the home itself and fabulous location, but also to the kindness of the owner. This home is within walking distance of many Victoria attractions, yet has the neighborhood quietness when you are there. I would recommend this rental to anyone having the opportunity to stay in Victoria. Would definitely rent this home or any other from the owner.
