Why Caroline Haywood chose Victoria

We bought this property for the view and waterfront. It was an old renovated cottage with minimal garden. We have transformed it into a delightful garden with an amazing new home designed and built by my son Trevor. You will find the setting peaceful and relaxing with access to all amenities within minutes. We welcome pets with sleeping kennels and responsible owners.

Beautiful home and garden. Wonderful to come 'home' to while traveling

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of Caroline's home give a good idea of what to expect though you can't appreciate it until you're actually in it. Don't be put off when you see the construction near the highway exit and en route to the property. It's a major project that's got a lot of land torn up. However, this didn't impact our stay at all -- no noise from it, access to house fine, etc. There was construction starting on the property near Caroline's so you might want to inquire about how long that's going on as driveway work on it was noisy on our last day (didn't bother us as we were heading out, just something to ask about).

Caroline is accessible and helpful. The hot tub, especially in early morning or evening, is lovely as you look out into the garden and inlet. Truly rejuvenating. We loved the area and Caroline's home. Very well stocked and beautiful kitchen. Nice to eat in a couple of nights during a long vacation. Hope to be back some day.

Our family had a wonderful 5-day stay at Caroline's beautiful home over the Canada Day long weekend. The property is within minutes to grocery stores and two major highways making it easy getting to Victoria, Butchart Gardens and all other tourist attractions.

Central location with amazing amenities. Enjoy the early spring in the garden city. Our micro climate is the banana belt of CANADA. Blossoms are out as well as daffodils and tulips. You will be thrilled with the serenity of this home and so close to everything.
