About the owner: Jean McKay has lived in Victoria for 20 years after spending time in UK and Australia. After traveling the world and seeing many wonderful places she chose to make Victoria her home.
Why the Owner Chose Victoria, BC, Canada:
Jean fell in love with the property the moment she first set foot on it. Over the past 5 years she has completely rebuilt and renovated the old house . Jean feels that she has a responsibility to take care of and protect the grounds with their old stately arbutus trees for future generations. She is privileged to get to live here but never takes it for granted.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Sitting on the porch, gazing through the graceful twisted trunks of aged arbutus trees, watching the sparkling water and the light shining in from all sides showcasing the Olympic Mountains and breathing in all that fabulous fresh air bring a sense of peace and oneness with the natural world. Come here for a holiday and find a world you may have forgotten still exists.
