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.

Great House - Beautful View

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.

Better than the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful rental! The pictures don't do it justice. We loved cooking in the huge, modern kitchen, stocked with everything you'd need. Beautiful views from the windows, and a great location just a short drive from downtown Victoria. Highly recommended!

We had a great time at this property.

  • 5 of 5

Our three night stay at this property was excellent. We were greeted by our hosts son, a contractor who had built the new home on the property. He gave us A fulsome tour of the property. Wall-to-wall windows on both levels gave a magnificent view of the Gorge. The kitchen was very well-equipped. I would not hesitate to recommend this property and would return to enjoy it's excellent location and amenities.

Waterfront property on safe protected waterway for kayaking. 5 minutes to Galloping Goose walking/biking trail that will take you to downtown Victoria or out into the country to Sooke. Close to hospital and mall. 10 minute walk to bus stop. View eagles and herons from the penthouse style bedroom. Enjoy the sunset from my english style garden, relaxing in the hot tub or on your lounge with a glass of wine.
