Cute & Cozy Suite By Victoria Harbour

Bedrooms 1
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 - 4 nights


About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4, few steps to the harbour

Beautiful private suite in James Bay in a renovated carriage house. Everything is a short stroll away: parliament, harbour, ocean, grocery, liquor store, etc. Full kitchen, laundry, coffee, and tea included. Cute and Cozy with gas fireplace.

Exceptional location in James Bay. Ocean in three directions from our place, a short stroll away. 1min walk to bus routes. Beacon Hill park is one block away. The parliament is a 5min walk. Close to downtown, yet it is a quiet section of town.

Perfect location, private cozy suite, and close to everything! The sofa downstairs is a very comfortable hide-a-bed, if needed. There is no door between the two levels and the bathroom is on the same level as the bedroom. ***Please Note: The staircase inside is rather steep for people with reduced mobility. There is another staircase to access the 2nd level from outside attached to a beautiful balcony.

About Maeva Gauthier

Hello there! We are both ocean lovers and I moved to Victoria from Montreal, QC, 7 years ago (Maeva) and Dave is from Moncton, NB, and moved to the West coast over 15 years ago. I'm a marine biologist and a filmmaker in my spare time. I caught the travel bug early in life- thanks to my parents. I've been to the Arctic, the Antarctic, and a few countries in-between. Before studying biology, I was in the tourism industry. I'm into many outdoor activities: biking, sailing, hiking, diving, camping, etc. And I love great food and spending time with friends. Dave is a sales rep, so goes up and down the island quite often so can tell you all about it! He owns a small sailboat, Tanzer 26, and we love going sailing! We bought a house last year located in James Bay- 5min walk to downtown and the harbour- and hope you can enjoy this great location too! This year we also welcomed a new addition to our family, a little boy named Mathis. Feel free to contact us for inquiries or any questions.

Excellent cottage, location, owners.

  • 5 of 5

It was as advertised and communication with Maeva was good. Questions were always handled quickly and thoroughly. The location couldn't be better with short walks to shopping, Beacon Hill park, and the inner harbour. It's a little gem that I would recommend to anyone.

Really lovely cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We found this cottage really charming and well-situated. It is clean and comfortable, and the kitchen is well-equipped. The stove is the best rental property stove I've ever cooked on, so we were able to take a break from eating at restaurants so much of the time and cook decent meals. The cottage is near the park and the harbor as well as downtown Victoria. It's on a quiet part of the street and in back, so it is comfortable and quiet. What a special place this is to stay!
