About Wendy McDonald

We bought this property 4 years ago. Our home is next door and we have lived here for 13 years. We love the lake!

Wendy McDonald purchased this house in 2010

Why Wendy McDonald chose Vancouver Island

Our favorite pastime on a hot afternoon is a cool swim in the lake (Langford Lake is a very clean and safe lake) and relaxing on the dock afterwards. One of our favorite activities is walking around the lake, within a few minutes you are walking over a long wooden bridge thru wetland birders paradise, and then you follow a winding trail along the lake. This trail is an easy walk for most anyone or you can ride your bike if you like. From here you can connect to the galloping goose trail, and ride your bike into downtown Victoria or out to the village of Sooke if your feeling really motivated. There are 4 top golf courses within 5-10minutes, world famous Butchard Gardens is only about 25 minutes, away, a City Center Park with mini golf, a kid’s play zone and bowling are at the other side of the lake. Also locally there is shopping, restaurants, pubs, movie multi-plex, ocean beaches, Goldstream provincial park, whale watching and don’t forget some of the best salmon fishing in the world. Or maybe just head 5 minutes into downtown Langford and grab yourself a delicious latte..... its all here waiting for you to enjoy!

What makes this house unique

The biggest benefit of this Lakefront house is it is 20 minutes from Down town Victoria, and 10 minutes from the ocean. It is a one level rancher in a great neighbourhood on a quite cul-del-sac.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Wendy,



We loved our stay at Shelby Place. It is a beautiful lakefront setting, close to all amenities and centrally located for tourist activities. The house itself is beautifully furnished with everything you could want and a spacious layout that felt roomy for a family of five. We had a very relaxing stay and enjoyed swimming in the lake. Wendy and Ed went above and beyond, offering the use of their dock, showing us around and even providing a heating pad when one of us wasn't feeling well.

Lovely Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

Wendy was very welcoming to their lovely waterfront house on a small swimming and fishing lake 15-20 minutes from downtown Victoria. It was like moving into your own 3 bedroom house - cozy, comfy beds and everything you need for cooking, etc. We very much appreciated Wendy letting us stay for the shorter time and then stay the day while we waited for our flight. We'd all like to go back for a week in the summer when we could swim or maybe take out the canoe!

Outstanding Vacation House

Our family really liked our stay at this very well-kept house on Langford Lake. The house is very comfortable and thoughtfully equipped. Our vacation in Victoria was a big success and this house contributed a lot to our enjoyment. Thank you Wendy.

Beautiful spot!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely, well maintained property! My family thoroughly enjoyed the house and the lake. Our weather was spectacular and we spent a lot of time on the dock and in the water!

Wendy and Ed were readily available to answer questions and provide assistance, but otherwise gave us our privacy:). They live right next door.

There are a large number of stairs leading from the house to the dock. Which was not an issue at all for my able bodied family members, but would be an issue if one had mobility problems. We just used them as extra exercise to counter balance all the good food and drink we enjoyed! The only small negative is the size of the bbq. It would be much nicer to have a full size unit, as during summer months this is how I prefer to do the bulk of my cooking. It was a bit tricky to cook for 6 on the little one provided. Just a thought:)

We are from Victoria, so this was a perfect 'staycation'' for us, but those from out of town would certainly appreciate its central location for visiting areas in and around Victoria.

Thanks Wendy and Ed, for letting us rent from you! Hope to return again!

Sue and family

An outstanding property fit for families of all ages.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this property for a week over the holidays. The pictures on the site only show a little of this magnificent property. Situated right on a lake, but close to town it is an outstanding place to stay. The owners take personal pride and interest in this well-maintained home and they work diligently to ensure that everything is satisfactory throughout your stay. This home is highly recommended for families of all ages or anyone who wants to get away from the hustle and bustle of town, without having to leave the city.

Gorgeous and spacious beach house!

  • 5 of 5

My family and myself stayed at this lovely beach house for one week and only regret that we couldn't stay longer! It was very spacious, clean and comfortable and is only steps down from the house to Langford lake! Absolutely perfect location! Wendy(the owner) was gracious and helpful! She gave us some great recommendations of places to eat and things to see while on the island and she was only a text or call away if needed! I highly recommend staying at Shelby Beach House in Langford! It is close to scenic beaches, vineyards and a short drive to downtown Victoria! The wonderful accomodations really made our vacation memorable!
