A Laughing Otter gave us a waterfront home away from home! The location turned out to be the basement suite under the owner's property, but they were extremely pleasant neighbours and we had lots of privacy. The view out our main entrance was just across a backyard and right into the ocean, accessible down a flight of stairs. Walks on the beach during low tide were so much fun, especially for our dog who loved getting to vacation with us. I also loved that the neighbouring cat would come sit with me while I watched the waves.

The space was quiet, enjoyable, and with an overstocked kitchen and BBQ gave us the perfect option for meals. There were lots of restaurants and grocers nearby, but the kitchen had every utensil and dish we could need, a stocked Keurig, even spices and condiments that made cooking a breeze. The heated floors and modern fixtures made the place feel like a hotel, with a cozy fireplace to heat the living room. Even the TV was bigger than expected, with cable and Netflix access.

I highly recommend this charming getaway, and hope to visit again soon. A book and glass of wine is a must!

Great place to get settled into Victoria!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Laughing Otter lodge from April until July of 2016 as we searched for a home to buy in Victoria. It is located in the Cadboro Bay Area right on the ocean so has great views as well as a long beach to take walks on. The owners were friendly and helpful, and were available whenever we needed to ask a question. The suite has everything that we needed, and was quiet and private. There are grocery stores and restaurants nearby (some within walking distance), and it is about a fifteen minute drive to U-Vic and about five minutes drive to the Pat Bay Highway at Royal Oak Drive. I would highly recommend the Laughing Otter lodge for anyone who wants to get settled into Victoria but who does'nt want to be in the downtown area.
