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.

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.

Exceeded all expectations! A++++

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully designed open concept two bedroom on the water. Incredible hosts and convenient to everywhere. This was our first time visiting family in Victoria. Caroline's house and kitchen were so nice we ended up hosting our family for dinner 3 times. Everything you need in order to function in a house is provided. Most often in the drawer you would expect to find it. Lovely gardens and scenic water view from the main living space, roof deck and master bedroom. 10-15 minutes to downtown by car. We will definitely visit family more often now that we have found such wonderful accommodations. A home away from home. Bravo!

Gorgeous sumptuous waterfront home

  • 5 of 5

Amazingly beautiful waterfront house, so comfortable you never want to leave. Only caveat is that, frustratingly, you can't actually get to the water - cliff is too steep.

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.
