About Daniela Karolys

South Island Holiday Services.

We bought this beautiful property in 2014 and are so excited to own this place in the best location in the city.

Daniela Karolys purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Daniela Karolys chose Victoria

We were so lucky to find this incredible home in the best neighbourhood in the City. Being so close to the beach and Beacon Hill Park is a dream come true, especially since we're just a short walk from tonnes of amenities and downtown.

We love that this place is complete detached - no one above or below you. We also loved the garden in the back of the house - a peaceful retreat from the not-so-hectic Victoria life ;-)

What makes this cottage unique

Fully detached 1bd suite in an unbeatable location near the beach, downtown, the park, shops, restaurants, etc.

Perfect Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The location of this cottage is close to everything, 15 - 20 minute walk downtown, 5 minutes to the beach. The cottage had everything you would need for your stay. We were there for 10 nights and cooked dinner in, nothing really missing in the kitchen. Lots of little spots to eat out as well. James Bay Inn was a nice pub for dinner and drinks. The bed was comfortable, the couch was fine in the living room and the bathroom with the washer and dryer was great. Daniela was awesome with questions and her response time. We look forward to staying at the South Turner cottage again.

We enjoyed our stay in the Big House.

This is the 3 or 4 time we have been to Jordan's property on South Turner. We have always enjoyed its location, close to the ocean and Victoria's downtown and the amenities provided in the units.

Great location and very comfortable stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely vacation and found it really convenient to stop into our "home away from home" at times during the day. Then we were off for another walk from this very central location.

Excellent little gem!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at the cottage. It had everything we needed, was very clean and well equipped. It is a great location: close to downtown, the ocean, a grocery store and coffee shops. We sat outside in the little garden area to have dinner and breakfast. Our favourite bookstores, Munro's and Russell Books, tea shop Murchies and seafood restaurant, Ferris' Oyster Bar were within walking or short drive away. We will be back!

Car: not necessary

Located in Victoria's best neighbourhood, steps from downtown, the beach, famous Beacon Hill Park, and tonnes of amenities. No need for a car; this unit does not include parking. Great food, wonderful atmosphere - quiet but still close to the action.

Walk to the Empress Hotel, Parliament Buildings, Inner Harbour, Royal BC Museum, restaurants, grocery stores, coffee shops, bank, etc.

The best location in the City.
