Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Eight of us spent over a week in this beautiful home, tucked away in a quiet neighborhood, and enjoyed every minute! The owners are very attentive and took care of everything we needed. (Bev and Jack, thank you!) You can tell the renter's comfort is very important to them. The home is fantastic for entertaining with the open concept between the kitchen and living room, and there are two dining tables. It becomes very cozy when using the fireplace. There are plenty of plates, glasses, and silverware and even beautiful stemware if your beverage requires a little more elegance. There are many spices available, so it's not necessary to buy them. We also loved the floor plan because the stairs to the nicely decorated bedrooms are not in the middle of the house (they are off to the side), but they are easily accessible. Another thing we really liked is all the windows that let in a lot of natural light. The beds are very comfortable. The backyard is absolutely gorgeous and a short walk down the path leads to a wonderfully soothing hot tub among the trees. It's close enough to town for a night out, and just isolated enough to feel that you are in your own little paradise. Even the drive to the house from the main road is beautiful.

There's lots of great shopping just a few kilometers away. There's a Costco practically around the corner. The Market is a great place to buy groceries and every restaurant we went to was very good (especially Milestones Bar & Grill, Axe and Barrel Brewing Co., and Salty's Fish and Chips). Beautiful GoldStream Provencial Park is nearby. (We recommend taking the back road to the park - not the highway; you'll see an interesting fence made of skis).

We definitely recommend this house as a home-away-from-home when in Victoria!

Gorgeous, spacious home in beautiful, quiet neighborhood -- a retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this gorgeous and spacious home! The setting was lovely--such a quiet and peaceful neighborhood in a wooded setting. We spent time relaxing on the patio, overlooking lovely gardens with quiet seclusion. Our whole family enjoyed cooking in the modern and well-stocked kitchen, eating together in the lovely summer weather, and also enjoyed playing family games together in the spacious living room. It was so peaceful and quiet at night! The home is furnished beautifully and was super comfortable for our family group of six. We would definitely recommend this home to our friends and family and hope we can return for another visit.
