Property description


This is a 1 bedroom suite in a 1907 brick heritage home that has been renovated to include all the modern conveniences while maintaining some of the charm of the era including stained glass, hardwood floors and some exposed brick .

Sit outside and enjoy the temperate climate in a private garden patio or on a covered veranda. You can smell the ocean in the air.

The suite is fully furnished and has a queen- sized bed and pull out couch in the living room. Suitable for short-term or long-term stays. Bathroom has shower only.

The house has everything needed to ensure a relaxing stay....including a dishwasher, microwave and a clothes washer and dryer.

The home is located in a quiet neighbourhood within walking distance of downtown, everyday shopping needs, and a scenic oceanside walkway that travels around the inner harbour. If you don't feel like walking, a cab ($10 CDN) can get you most downtown tourists attractions.

Well-behaved pets are welcome in this suite-- it is equipped with a doggie door and a fenced in area.

If you would like a more traditional period style bedroom suite or a 2 bedroom + den suite, please look at the other HILLCREST HOUSE listings at #329950 and #612335.

Please let us know if you have any questions. We look forward to meeting you.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2016

About the owner: Over the years I have enjoyed entertaining friends and family in my homes. Collecting and decorating with antiques has also been a passion of mine. So you can imagine when I was presented with the opportunity to purchase this amazing 1907 Heritage Home...I just couldn't say no! Hillcrest House is full of charm and beauty as well as History, being one of the oldest homes in the community. I have made it my mission to carry on the the passion I have for hostessing and offer the Best Hospitality I can for all my welcome guests!

Why the Owner Chose Victoria West, Victoria, BC, Canada:
I grew up on the prairies enduring cold winters. Five years ago my son, Quinn and I decided we'd had enough, packed up our standard poodles and moved to Victoria. We have never looked back and never regretted it! Beside the fabulous weather, ocean and mountain views, there is of course plenty of original Heritage architecture all of which we enjoy every day living here. Hillcrest House offers convenience of location, a warm ambience as well as charm and comfort. And in a great area for touring, walking and biking.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Hillcrest House is a pet friendly home uniquely divided into 3 suites each with their own deck, patio and fenced yard. We welcome your well behaved pets and look forward to your next stay with us!
