We loved our stay at this property. The home was clean, spacious and well-appointed and the location and property were spectacular!
This home was the perfect place to stay in Victoria. The setting was so beautiful. We arrived to music playing and a lovely inviting yard. The house was so beautiful and comfortable but the yard really made the difference for us. The kids really enjoyed the hot tub and the pond. We would definately recommend this place for a group wanting to experience many different areas of Victoria. .
Beautiful Home Away From Home!
We absolutely LOVED this gorgeous vacation home. We were a party of 10 and we had more then enough space for all of us. We loved the layout of the home, tranquility of the backyard and the stocked kitchen for all our cooking needs and more!!! Bedrooms were great, lots of space and comfortable beds! Gorgeously decorated throughout! We mostly enjoyed the hot tub and fire pit located just down a path in the backyard and situated in a very private luxurious spot surrounded by trees and tons of beautiful foliage! We enjoyed using the BBQ, sitting at the beautiful patio set, on the lounger chairs and the kids loved the pond filled with fish that they got to feed everyday! The home itself and yard are immaculate......such a beautiful oasis and we were very happy to call it home for the 5 nights we stayed! Thank you Jack and Bev for everything! We hope to be back one day!
Our extended family which included 8 adults and 3 preschool grandchildren enjoyed a wonderful 5 days at the Nash home. Space is abundant both within and outside the home. The bedrooms are well situated to afford everyone a good night's sleep! Meals were easily prepared for indoor and out door eating through use of well-stocked kitchen cooking pans and dishes and a BBQ. There are a variety of walking trails within the yard and a duck pond across the street that was intriguing for grandparents, parents and the grandchildren. The house was immaculate and tastefully decorated. Thanks Bev and Jack!
This home is everything that we expected - it is marketed exactly as is and is just wonderful!!
This home is spacious. The bedrooms are very generous, the bedding is excellent, as are the towels! You'll find all facilities well looked after and in working order. We loved the hot tub and also the fire pitt, bbq, and outdoor living areas, and the airflow inside the home was perfect too.
Bev and Jack are lovely people and are there to help but at the same time they respect your privacy. We all felt very at home and comfortable living in their beautiful home and would not hesitate to return in the future. THANK YOU Bev & Jack!! xo
Perfect in every way!
Not only was the property perfect but the hosts were incredibly accommodating in terms of letting us host an event there and helping us with deliveries ahead of time and after. The house was the perfect location and size for our event and the amenities were incredible. Spacious and comfortable, the linens were incredible and everything was better than we expected. There's a cupboard full of games and the kitchen is incredibly well stocked. We had an excellent time and would not hesitate to book this property again should we have any future events!
Rural like setting, with creek and two ponds... Gated community of ten private homes.
Christmas is the greatest time to be here as the home is a perfect Christmas retreat... with the colors and the fireplace and a special tree provided! Also don't forget the outdoor fire-pit... next to the hot tub area.
