About Barbara Scott

Bruce & Barbara Scott are long time Victoria residents. Bruce is a real estate agent and Barbara is a professional artist. The suite is adorned with her original works on canvas.

Barbara Scott purchased this Apartment in 2003

Why Barbara Scott chose View Royal

We are only the 2nd owners of this 50's house that we completely renovated and added to. The property is private and feels like an acreage, yet is only minutes to downtown Victoria. We have created lush beautiful gardens, and beautiful seaside sanctuary. We love the peace & quiet here. This is a magical place and has its own spirit about it. Everyone who comes here is captivated by it.

What makes this Apartment unique

This is usable waterfront. At the bottom of the garden, there is a private dock to launch a boat or kayak or to float on an inflatable mattress. This property while so private and feels like you are in a different world is only minutes to downtown Victoria and all it has to offer. Many bike trails, golf courses, shopping & restaurants are very nearby

                                                          Our third stay and we continue to be amazed at the peaceful green waterfront...lovely in all seasons. The compact suite is carefully curated for comfort and aesthetic enjoyment. We love View Royal with access to many excellent natural areas, hiking, historic exploration and other fun. Short ride to Victoria city centre and many interesting neighborhoods. We hiked Francis King park & explored Old Town/ LoJo. Lots to do or relax & enjoy!

                                                          Charming, warm facility located in a scenic space

                                                          Mark V.

                                                          As the facility had been originally prepared for a loved one, it reflected a considerable amount of care, love and charm in the spacious, well-kept facility. The immaculate gardens situated by the local lake, certainly added to a pleasant experience when needed a moment of outdoor relaxation on the grounds.

                                                          The comfortable beds, updated kitchen, baseboard heaters and bathroom and original artwork gave the daily living space provided a quality way-of-life while we toured the area for a week. The tech aspect of the TV and video equipment had a couple of issues, however, the overall performance was adequate.

                                                          The host and hostess added their personal touch and made us feel very welcome! We would certainly consider this wonderful space for a future trip...

                                                          We stayed 3 nights in Sept. 2017. This location is perfect for accessing Victoria and the lower Island communities. The setting on the Inlet is beautiful and peaceful, just as the pictures indicate. The accommodation is ideal for 2 people, quiet, roomy and fully self-contained complete with kitchen and laundry facilities. It was great to chat with the hosts Bruce & Barbara. We really appreciated Bruce's tips on restaurants and local sights. Thanks again and we'll surely recommend your place to friends and family.
