About Jordan

We live in the main house on the property (the Cottage is just behind our house). We fell in love with the property and the neighbourhood and can't believe we get to live in this amazing place. We spend our time walking along the beach in front of the house, walking to the nearby shops, and taking our little one to nearby parks.

Jordan purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Jordan chose Victoria

The most incredible location in the City - right by the beach and Beacon Hill Park and a short walk to all the amenities of Cook St Village.

We also love the blend of heritage architecture and modern convenience.

What makes this cottage unique

Location, beautiful character property with attention to detail. Beautifully finished. Private patio.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and really loved the location. We found the couch a bit uncomfortable but maybe that was just us.

A cottage by the beach

  • 4 of 5

This property is a good size for one or two people and well equipped.

The location was ideal for me -- close to the water, close to James Bay, within easy walking distance of limited shopping on Cook Street and about 20 minutes walk from the shopping centre on Fairfield or perhaps 30 minutes walk to the Thrifty's and town centre on Menzies. Both walks are through pleasant neighbourhoods -- a real pleasure. I enjoyed being adjacent to Dallas Road and the walkway along the ocean and I also enjoyed being only two blocks from Beacon Hill Park and its many paths through beautiful vistas both groomed and more natural.

The property manager was responsive to my requests for assistance -- a very positive and accommodating person.

very pleasant holiday

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed in Victoria for the month of Feb. over the past few years. Our stay this year was one of the best. The carriage house was comfortable, cozy in the damp weather and perfectly located for access to the shore line of the straits, walking trails, the park, restaurants and shopping. The carriage house is well equipped and our hosts, Jordan and Gypsy, were more than willing to help in any way possible. We hope to return next year. Gloria and John, Ontario, Canada

Great Spot, Nice Suite

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay here. Quiet, clean, lots of room for 2 people, close to the ocean and downtown core. Good value for the money. Would definitely stay here again when heading to Victoria.

Great location near the water, downtown Victoria and local restaurants.

Very clean and quiet. Central location. Bring your running shoes to take advantage of the wonderful waking path along the water.

Outstanding Studio in walking distance to Cook St Village

  • 5 of 5

While small (it is a studio), this converted Carriage house is a gem both inside and location wise. 200' from the waterfront trail, 2 blocks from the beautiful Beacon Hill Park and just blocks from Cook Street Village, this place offers far more than meets the eye. Inside, we were met with spotless clean and chocolates on the pillows (and spares on the table!), a full kitchen if you choose (and we did) and a comfortable living space. The proximity to Cook St Village (PUB [The Beagle], grocery, pharmacy, ect...) was an unexpected bonus, although it was recommended in the house guide. Access from either the ferry or the airport was cake via Douglas St (Rt 1 or Rt 17) and even if you choose to walk, the stroll through Beacon Hill Park is worth the walk. Full laundry facilities if you need them and great eating recommendations in the house book. Much thanks to Jordan who dropped by moments after we got there to make sure things were ok.
