Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 6

Seagulls Loft is truly a home away from home. With stunning views of the islands, ocean and mountains, this authentic Tudor-styled house has a warmth about it that will make you feel at home as soon as you step through the front door. Unique features such as a central circular fireplace, furnishings made from original African Rhodesian teak railway ties and a spacious and bright master suite located in the loft add to the character of the home.

On a sunny lot, Seagulls Loft boasts a garden with indigenous shrubbery which attracts an abundance of wonderful bird life. The living room is bright and cozy with views of the the ocean, a wood burning circular fireplace and a bar. The sundeck off the living room is an excellent spot to view both the gardens, ocean and mountains. Through the formal dining room, you will find a large and spacious kitchen with a breakfast nook that provides you with ample views of the garden and a great spot to watch the birds come and go. A bedroom with a double size bed and a powder room finish off the main level. The lower level of the home has a newly renovated bedroom with ensuite and laundry facilities. Continuing upstairs to the very top floor, you are met with the open, bright and cheery master suite providing views of the ocean and mountains that can be viewed when lying in bed or sitting in the private sun room. The ensuite is both relaxing and spacious with a separate shower and tub.

The large lot is surrounded by gardens and towering trees. A flat sunny yard is a great spot to play in or just relax and enjoy your surroundings. There is a beach access located at the rear of the yard, however, it is incredibly steep and should only be used by older children and adults. The beach located at the bottom of the ladder is rocky but could serve as a kayak launch. The nearest public beach access is just 2 kms away and is a secluded sandy beach. You can also sit and enjoy the sailing boats and yachts as they head out for a day on the water from one of many marinas close by. On the way back you can call in to Canoe Cove Cafe or Stonehouse restaurant both of which come highly recommended by the locals. Sidney is only 5 minutes drive away or you can head in the opposite direction from Sidney, along Lands End road, towards Deep Cove, and enjoy a most beautiful drive as the road twists and turns through a forested area, passing beautiful homes and catching glimpses of the ocean and islands along the way. Deep Cove market is not to be missed in the summer months, where the locals gather to sell their produce.

Seagull's Loft is the perfect place to relax, rejuvenate and treat yourself to a memorable getaway in comfort and style. Make Seagull's Loft your next stay when visiting Victoria!

Please note that there is a separate rental suite located in the lower level of the main house

Lovely location, beautiful gardens

  • 3 of 5

Seagulls loft was a nice house, however desperately needs a decent clean from top to bottom and maintenance required on all cupboards. A sharp knife in the kitchen would be handy. Beautiful views and gardens. The fire place is gorgeous sadly as we were there in the summer we couldn't use. The steep steps are very accurately described. On the website it mentions the house has kayaks however there is no way you are getting them safely down the steps, hence they are advised in the house book not to use them. Also, website mentions there are binoculars and a telescope which would of been great to use but not in the house. A warning they do rent out a flat underneath the house, not listed on the site and whilst we didn't have anyone there when we were, that information would be nice to know prior to booking. All in all a lovely house however needs some TLC and the website needs amending if they don't want to offer some items to guests.

Reviewer Comments:

We were told the the Ferries ,which are located directly below the house , would not disturb our stay - not true! The gardens are lovely, photos show that the view is stunning.....the stove was quite dirty but the EMR staff were wonderful wanting to send the housekeeper back. One has to be cautious not to trip in the tiny space where the didning table is as there are bricks on the floor which surround a gas stove for extra heat/ right next to this table! Also if stairs are not your 'thing' probably choose another location. We relocated and owners refused to refund any money EVEN if they were able to fill our time with others. I'd say to avoid this location!!!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your review of the Seagulls Loft. We are not happy to see you would not recommend the property to others. The ferry docks are close by and some people enjoy watching them. However, if ferries on the ocean are not for you we would not recommend this property either. We hope to see you again in the future.

Reviewer Comments:

The place is really nice, located by the rocks going all the way down to the water. View is spectacular, in the evening especially. Plenty walking options. Unfortunately a bit far away from amenities, thus driving is required. Clean, tidy, comfortable.

We had a great time. Great facilities but only 2.5 baths instead of 3 as advertised. Would stay there again.
