Great stay

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week in Sara an Josh's beautiful home for the second time. It met all of our needs an more. We had two families together and had plenty of room for all an we were able to entertain guests . It was close to everything. The commute to downtown daily was easy.

The hot tub was enjoyed nightly by some of us an most things were well stocked . We would return,

Thank you for another great stay.

Excellent vacation property! Well appointed and beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great getaway weekend and the house was so clean and stocked with more than the basics! It's evident that the owners have put thought and attention to detail for their guests. We found getting into the downtown core quick and easy, while Langford had all the necessities just 5 minutes away.

Comfortable stay for eight

  • 4 of 5

The house is roomy and open upstairs, and it is upstairs. Two flights, one outside and one in to reach the kitchen, so be prepared.

Kitchen is well appointed and you have access to condiments, spices, foil and plastic wrap. The host puts out a nice welcome basket. Great big propane barbecue in good working order, too.

Master bedroom is big, with an ensuite and a door to the deck, BBQ and hot tub outside. Bed is comfortable. Two other bedrooms upstairs and a roomy one on the lower level. All eight adults in our group were very comfortable.

There are some house rules you need to know in advance of your departure, so make sure to read the welcome book. The host asks that you wash the towels, strip the beds and sweep the floors at the end of your stay. We hit the 7 am ferry to the mainland, so we had to do most of the clean-up the night before.

Location is good, close to both Highway 1 and Victoria.

Great stay.

A lot is expected at check out

  • 2 of 5

My family has stayed in probably 15 condo rentals and I think this was probably the worst.

Pro's

- It was clean

- Easy access to main roads

Con's

- There is a full time tenant in the house living in a segmented part of the house above the garage. He lost his cat while we were in the rental and was poking around the hot tub and back yard. The owners of the property even came over and was in and out of the yard. It felt like a violation of privacy and was a bit creepy.

- There is a house rule about no kids under 15 in the hot tub. This was a big downer for our kids.

- They expect a LOT at checkout time. Towels need to be washed, dried, folded, and put back where they were. Trash needs to be taken out, kitchen swept, bedding stripped, etc... We had an early departure from town and getting up early to get through the checklist sucked. The dryer took FOREVER to dry a load of towels. The instructions made it clear that failing to "leave the place as you found it" (aka not doing the checklist of cleaning) could lead to increased cleaning fees.

- At least one of the beds had a "valley" that made sleeping uncomfortable.

- We had to run to the store to buy soap for the showers as none was provided

Long and short - I would never stay here again.

Owner's Response: Hi, We are truly sorry you didn't enjoy your stay in our rental. I wish some of your issues had been voiced at an earlier date as to allow us to rectify them. We take all feedback very seriously. I however feel some of your comments are incorrect or exaggerated. -We don't allow children in the hot tub in order to keep the tub clean for you and future guests. -We came into the back yard for all of 15 mins after notifying you we would be there. -There is body soaps provided in our gift basket we leave for each group. - The cleaning fee is based on a sliding scale to allow the guest to save money if they wish to do some cleaning themselves. None of the cleaning is required and the list is merely suggestions of what you can do to save money. Your group was very pleasant and left the house in very good condition. We feel terrible that you didn't enjoy your stay. Had I known these concerns during your stay I would have taken actions to improve your stay. Sincerely, Josh and Sarah

Fantastic Base for Island Exploring

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this home from the moment we walked in. It was even better than the pictures. Everything was clean with enough space to accommodate a larger group. The kitchen is well appointed so you only need to purchase the food you want to prepare. We were able to cook a few meals very comfortably and really enjoyed the grill and eating outside. The evening hot tub was a welcome end to the day. The location is also ideal for reaching Victoria or hiking in Sooke. We would definitely stay here again on our next visit. Josh was very responsive anytime we had a question about local findings. Exploring downtown and the whale watching tour was a huge hit.
