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 Victoria

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!

  • 5 of 5

Barb & Terry have everything you need here! You can even do laundry! Suite is spotless, fresh & so relaxing! We walked to the Victoria Harbour often - good excercise to keep you fit after all the wonderful seafood you may eat! They have a book that has all the points of interest listed & some restaurants also.

We will be back for sure!!

Wonderfully comfortable, clean and quiet.

  • 5 of 5

This in house suite is such a great find! Private downstairs entrance, super nice and clean. On the gorge (just a few steps down the road). The hosts (Barb and Terry) were available if we needed anything but gave us privacy. Would definitely stay here again!

Ideal Base for Metro Victoria

  • 5 of 5

We revisited Garthland Road for the second time having first stayed two years ago when we were last in Victoria. It is an ideal residence from where to explore the city and its environs being within an easy bus ride of downtown(route 14 from the end of the road). The accommodation is very comfortable and well appointed with very pleasing decor encouraging a restful end to a packed day. For those wanting a bit of pampering then Barb offers a range of therapies; we had a very restful enhanced facial. Thankyou again Barb and Terry.

Well Decorated and Immaculately Clean!

  • 4 of 5

Stayed 7 nights in Barb and Terry's very beautiful, clean, and comfortable apartment while we explored the sites of Victoria and some of the surrounding areas. Apartment is located beneath the main home but has a separate entrance. Cable worked great in both rooms on large flat screen t.v. Which also could play one of the many movies which were in their collections. Air and heat worked very well. Very nice that there were separate thermostats in each room. Stairs are on the outside leading down to the apartment which were a challenge to my mother who has knee issues. However, Barb was very gracious to allow us to come in and out using the slope on the side of the yard instead. A few well placed stones could easily make the unit wheelchair accessible as the entire unit was flat on the inside. One recommendation I could make is to mention that laundry is outside of the unit off the garage of the main home. Note a huge deal if you're only there a day or two and don't need it but it is a little work to haul laundry outside and upstairs. It would be great if this were listed. All in all a good stay and would definitely recommend! Thanks for wonderful stay!
