Located in wine-country. Many animals and birds come and go seasonally.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Get an entire house not just a room. Kitchen, dinning, living and family rooms and laundry. Rent the house using all three bedrooms, or one or two bedrooms depending on your needs.

A good location to visit Victoria, Cowichan Bay, Mill Bay, Cobble Hill, Duncan, Nanaimo and also a good location for visiting wineries, Kinsol Trestle, and also for hiking, fishing, bird watching and cycling. Perfect location for Shawnigan Lake School and Brentwood college visitors. Another unique feature are the birds and animals.

Part of the property a natural grassy area which the deer frequent. The deer like the property because there is plenty to eat and there are no dogs to bother them.
