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.

beautiful home in a relaxing location

  • 5 of 5

We had come to Victoria for a family reunion so there were 7 cousins in our group. This vacation home worked beautifully for us. The house provided lots of space for everyone and great areas to join together in the kitchen, living room and patio area. The home is comfortable, clean and had everything we needed. It is a quite area that feels private while being a reasonable distance to downtown Victoria. The weather was great while we were there allowing us to have relaxed breakfasts on the patio surrounded by gardens and trees. The kitchen is well set up and Bev encouraged us to use the well stocked spices and oils making dinners much easier. There was enough room that we invited 8 of our cousins and had a wonderful evening (we did add to the spice collection to even off having great access) When we had a small problem Bev and her husband were very quick to respond and resolve the issue.

Everyone was very pleased with Bear Mountain Resort and wished that we had longer to stay here. If we do a second reunion there is no doubt that we would stay here again. Thanks Bev for creating such a wonderful spot.

Beautiful property, perfect for family gathering.

  • 5 of 5

We came for three nights with my mom, dad, step mom, brother and his children, my family including 11 month old granddaughter. The property was perfect for all of us with quiet areas throughout the home to retreat to or be social in. Only wish we could have stayed another 1-2 nights. Thank you so much for allowing us to use your beautiful home for the memories.

Great location and excellent accomodations

  • 5 of 5

Bev and Jack have a beautiful home that has everything you could need to enjoy your visit to Victoria. We especially loved their home theater setup and the variety of board games they had available for our use. They communicated well, check-in was a breeze and there was information about local hikes and swimming holes in the area. We even followed their map to a swimming spot on Thetis lake which was perfect. There's easy access to local lakes and hikes and getting to downtown Victoria only took about 25 minutes. They have a beautiful backyard complete with fountain, walking path, grill and hot-tub. We used all of these are particularly enjoyed grilling and eating on the outdoor patio. I highly recommend this place and would definitely stay again for future visits to Victoria.

Beautiful Guest Home

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely home in a town on the outskirts of Victoria. It was perfect for our extended family to get together for a vacation and explore the area. There are a large living area and well-equipped kitchen and outside grill, and a wonderful open, airy feel to the house. The patio and gardens include a naturalized pond and fountain that attract birds. The back yard is also completely privately landscaped. Our family loved the hot spa.
