Heritage House. Come stay in this lovely two bedroom, plus sun











Sit outside and enjoy the temperate climate in a private garden patio or the small upper deck balcony. You can smell the ocean in the air.


The house has everything needed to ensure a relaxing stay--including a dishwasher, microwave and a clothes washer and dryer. The patio provides the perfect place for a family meal.

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 to most downtown tourist attractions.

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

If there is no availability for your desired dates and a one bedroom suite that sleeps 4 would work for you, please look at the other HILLCREST HOUSE listings at #329950 and #612221.

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 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 with 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! Besides the fabulous weather, ocean and mountain views there is of course plenty of Heritage architecture all of which we enjoy every day living here. Hillcrest House offers convenience of location, nice views, as well as Heritage charm and comfort. The area is great 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 area and fenced yard. We welcome your well behaved pet and look forward to your next stay with us!
