Our photos and video capture the picturesque setting but nothing captures the sublime experience of a stay at Heathwood. To watch our VIDEO, click the link on the left.

The Courtyard Suite

From the moment you open the gate onto your secluded patio and enter the Courtyard Suite, you are welcomed into the cozy charms of this two bedroom, two bath suite. Attached to a tranquil country home, and suitable for two couples or a family of four, this self-contained 1400 sq.ft. suite delights with its attention to detail and peaceful ambiance.

With panoramic views across the pastoral reaches of Mt. Newton Valley to the snow-capped mountains of the Olympic Range in Washington, enjoy morning tea or a candlelit dinner on your private patio amidst the English Country gardens with the waters of the Pacific Ocean close by.

Comfort and relaxation have been the key words for the design and execution of this unique property. Each master suite offers a Queen-sided bed with fine linens and sufficient drawers and closets for you to put your bags away and be at home during your stay. The attached bathrooms provide comfy bathrobes and extra towels, luxuriously appointed with local hand-crafted soaps and shampoos.

Your kitchen is fully equipped with every convenience and the pantry is stocked with spices, oils and condiments for your cooking pleasure. Your patio has a BBQ and comfy patio set for your outdoor dining enjoyment. If you are a late arrival, there will be fresh scones waiting in the fridge to savor in the morning.

During the summer months, take a glass of wine out to your patio and watch the skies light up with explosive colors every Saturday evening, compliments of the Butchart Gardens Summer firework show.

All year, away from the lights of the city, the night sky is filled with the stars and constellations of our Universe. In the stillness of Heathwood, enjoy star-gazing or watch the Perseids Meteor Shower from mid-July to mid-August.

We encourage you to explore the stunning beauty of Supernatural BC. Centrally located on the Saanich Peninsula, local activities are just moments away. Whether you like to commune with nature, hike trails, walk along beaches, whale watch, kayak, tour gardens and wineries or shop local artist’s galleries and boutiques, Heathwood is close to them all.
Take a short drive into Victoria to see the Parliament Building, the Provincial Museum or enjoy high tea at the historic Empress Hotel.

Come share the sweeping views and cozy ambiance of Heathwood Estates with us.
Your hosts, Jacqueline & Ollie

Car: Recommended

Heathwood is unique in its location in the beautiful Mt. Newton Valley. So close to the Brentwood bay ferry, which will take you over to Mill Bay, you can drive to the North end of the Island and enjoy the many spectacular views along the way.

Or simply take in all there is to offer right here, wine tasting

tours, the wonderful local beaches, local artists galore and so much more.

The famous Butchart Gardens is a 5 minute drive.

The Brentwood Inn, and Spa is a 3 minute drive, Well worth

pampering yourself. They also offer an excellent Sushi bar

overlooking the ocean

The town of Sidney-by-the-sea, is10 minutes away, enjoy the many unique stores, and delightful restaurants by the ocean.

The city of Victoria, with its many attractions, is a very easy 15 minute drive.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: My Husband and I have travelled extensively. When, one day we sailed to Vancouver Island, we were captivated by the beauty of this entire area and knew that we had found a gem. We felt incredibly fortunate that we really stumbled on this stunning Island and knew that this is where we would love make our permanent home.

Why the Owner Chose Central Saanich (Central Saanich, BC, Canada):
The absolute beauty and uniqueness of the valley captivated us. The home with its beautiful gardens and spectacular views. We face South overlooking this beautiful valley, through to the Olympic Mountains of Washington. We can see the Ferries crossing from Brentwood Bay to Mill Bay. We enjoy the proximity to Victoria and the Inner Harbour to the South of us and the picturesque town of Sidney-by-the-sea to the North of us all within minutes away. We are always so happy to return to the Beauty, peace and tranquility of our home. Our property provides an ideal setting for our Equestrian activities, we can enjoy watching our horses grazing peacefully in their pastures..

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
The Unique Benefits at this Estate: The absolute beauty and uniqueness of the valley allows us to live in the heart of the countryside, surrounded by farms producing fresh local produce where the honor system is still often used.We are in the perfect location; with easy access to Victoria the capital city of British Columbia, a short 15 minute drive. Or if we wish to explore this magnificent Island the Pacific Marine Circle Route is the perfect one-day drive. Including visiting West Coast beaches and parks, world famous ancient forests and mammoth trees… with interesting and quaint places to see along the way such as “Point No Point” for tea with a stunning view, French Beach, China Beach, Port Renfrew and the fascinating Botanical Gardens the trailhead of Pacific Rim Park, Cowichan Lake , the list is immense. After a day of sight seeing and discovering new places to return to the peace, beauty and tranquility of Heathwood is a treasure we never take for granted. Victoria and the South Island region is home to many exceptionally talented chefs who turn local products into memorable dining experiences. Taste the amazing foods from the region, fresh produce, Pacific seafood, fine wines and ales at the restaurants in the area or bring the delights you find home to enjoy in your “home away from home” – Heathwood.
