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, comfortable and welcoming

We have stayed in this suite 3 times now which should speak for itself. It is always super clean , comfortable and welcoming. It’s also in a great location for getting downtown, getting to walking and cycling trails and for sightseeing.

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.

Excellent accommodations 2-3min from the center of town

  • 5 of 5

My mom and I came to Victoria for sight seeing, hanging out in the harbor, a little biking and found this place to be perfect for all our needs. The entire basement apartment was perfect for our needs. Incredibly clean, bright and welcoming. Barb was fast in responding to any of our questions and very helpful. We would absolutely stay here again.

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.
