Located in the vibrant Fernwood Village (a short 15-20 minute walk to the Victoria downtown harbour and sites), an average evening without leaving our Fernwood village neighbourhood could involve a short stroll to Stage Wine Bar (Winner of Victoria Best Restaurant 2015) for a glass of wine and mouthwatering small plates created with local organic ingredients. Settle up and merely cross the street to enjoy world class live entertainment at the Belfry Theatre. Then pop back across the street to the neighbourhood pub, the Fernwood Inn and debrief over a cocktail, live music and casual pub fare. In the morning you can enjoy your choice of hip coffee shops within walking distance as well as our neighbourhood "local general store" for some local organic meats, produce and treats including handmade clothing and soaps!

Nice, clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We came to Victoria for my daughter’s graduation. The house is nice and spacious with plenty beds to sleep. Ammie met us at the house and was able to answer our questions. I love the fact that there is a big washer and dryer and not the small machines that hardly takes 2 pair of pants (which is a waste of time and water)!! We enjoyed our stay and will definitely stay again on future visits to Victoria.

It was an average type in the middle of a neighborhood. It would’ve been a walk to the downtown area

  • 2 of 5

The upstairs shower did not work which made it inconvenient since we had five people staying there. Our group felt that the write up related to location was misrepresented.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Jan. Rarely do we feel the need to respond to reviews as they are generally so positive. It was disapointing for us to find the upper shower to have been damaged after your stay. Had you relayed any info with regards to this issue during your stay we could have easily had it mended! Good news, we had it fixed in less than 10 mins after it was noted! In terms of the location, I believe the site map is acurate. Our family and other travelers have walked the grueling 15mins of flat sidewalks through safe neighborhoods to find the welcome arms of Downtown many times! We hope you enjoyed all of the food wine and other provisions left for your party. Your review is certainly very discouraging when we work so hard to ensure everyone has a great time. Hoping your next vacation home suites your needs much better!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We were in Victoria for a family wedding and this home was exactly what we were looking for. Two families were able to comfortably share the home and visit in the beautiful garden. Our niece came for a visit with her two year old, and there were even toys for him to play with. Amie was very accommodating, as we were all arriving at different times, and she was able to meet the first arrival promptly. Would stay again for sure!

Beautiful home and very kid friendly!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 3 nights recently for a family trip. It was perfect for the 10 people we had there (6 adults and 4 kids) The kids had a great time playing in the yard and it was fenced and we could see them from the living area, so it was perfect. The location was great, only about a 10 minute drive to the harbour. The house was beautifully decorated and the layout was very functional. The little touches of groceries and treats and toys for the kids was much appreciated and unexpected. The only thing we found missing was a cheese grater, haha! A quick trip to the grocery store saved our tacos :-) Thanks so much for everything! And we would definitely recommend staying here.
