About Barb Jackson

I am born and raised in Victoria and appreciate its beauty, and love nothing more than sharing all it has to offer.I am a highly skilled esthetician. My goal is to provide you with relaxing treatments to enhance your vacation experience in the comfort of my on site day spa.{ Please book treatments early ,spa menu provided upon request} My husband is from Saskatchewan(rider pride) but considers Victoria his home,he is constantly saying 'best place on earth' I agree!

Why Barb Jackson chose Gorge -Tillicum Area

We recently moved into this brand new home and love the area because it is in a quiet residential area steps away from the water but also so close to virtually everything.

What makes this apartment unique

We love our home and the surrounding area because it feels like we are looking at a beautiful painting, but it is the Gorge Waterway which seems to change daily depending on the season. People kayak and walk year round on the waterway. There are special events planned around the Gorge, such as paint and music festivals and the area is closed to traffic once a year on Canada Day so local artisans and foodies can set up along the walkway for everyone to enjoy!

Clean, Nice, Pricey

  • 3 of 5

Very nice suite. As mentioned was clean and nicely decorated but too pricey. 3 nights at $night + $cleaning + $service fee = $Total. If you choose to stay here I would also recommend bringing slippers as the floors were cold on the feet.

Owner's Response: Hi Cynthia The price per night was $140 for your family of 4 with all taxes included. We hire professional cleaners to ensure the suite is immaculate for our guests(the cost $85) The service fee is from VRBO, they take a certain percentage for the service they provide. All fees and total cost are provided from VRBO to guests prior to booking, giving the guest the chance to review and proceed with reservation if they choose to do so. Sincerely Barb and Terry

This residential bsmt suite is not ideal if you have mobility issues

  • 3 of 5

Although this residential basement suite is in a great centralized location, it is not ideal for people with mobility issues due to the steep & numerous outdoor stairs down to the unit.

Otherwise the unit was very bright, clean & cozy with very comfortable beds.

Barb's spa treatments are heavenly. J&J

Owner's Response: Hi James The suite does have 6 steps that lead to the ground level walkout. We are sorry we were not aware that you had mobility issues. If a guest is inquiring about and mentions that they have mobility issues we immediately offer to send pictures so that they can decide if the suite would be suitable for their needs. We are glad you did find the suite itself comfortable and in a good location, but once again are sorry that you had difficulty with the steps. Thank you Barb and Terry

Our family has made it a Christmas tradition to travel at Christmas time and this was the perfect home away from home. It was not only comfortable but decorated well and exceptionally clean. It felt like home. Barb was so gracious in answering all our questions and giving us recommendations. Would definitely recommend this place and stay again.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This was a clean, comfortable, modern place to stay. The bed was excellent for two people who are fussy about their mattress. We slept perfectly! The art work and decorations were lovely and made you feel at home. The location was great and we enjoyed walking along the gorge. It was quick and easy to get downtown, also. We had a wonderful time in Victoria and thoroughly enjoyed our accommodations! Thanks for sharing your home with us, Barb. We will be back if we are ever in Victoria again.
