About Laurie Lidstone

Clark and I are both in our mid 50s we have been married for many years and have just pushed our last child out of the nest, we are excited about the years ahead and plan on filling them with lots of travel.

Laurie Lidstone purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Laurie Lidstone chose Saanich East

My husband and I built this home 2 years ago, we chose the setting because of its close proximities to Victoria downtown plus the easy in getting to hiking trails. We also love being up the road from the wonderful little village and walk the beach everyday

What makes this apartment unique

The suite is decorated in a comfortable beach theme. The suite is completely self contained and private

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful experience staying in Laurie's home over the Family Day Weekend in BC. The location was perfect, only a few blocks from Cadboro Bay with an amazing park that the kids could play at. The home was very clean, the beach cottage decor made the space feel cozy and bright, and we felt we had our privacy the whole time we were there. The home was surrounded by other beautiful homes, and the neighbourhood seemed friendly. We took a walk down to the village Center and enjoyed a cup of coffee from the Starbucks before blowing through the local grocery store. The fruit plate, Keurig coffees and stocked fridge were a nice not expected but very much appreciated. Of course my wife fell in love with the heated tile floors in the bathrooms, and for me the best part was the rainfall shower heads. And for the kids, it was the hot tub for sure! :) We met Laurie when we first arrived and she greeted us with a warm welcome as she gave us a quick tour of the home. At anytime we needed anything we would send her a text and she responded right away. She was an incredible host and we would definitely stay here again the next time we're on the island. I would give Laurie and her home a 10 out of 10!

Modern and spacious

  • 5 of 5

Lovely modern apartment on side of new luxury home. The apartment has lots of space and has everything that you could possibly require, including all toiletries, loads of towels, washing machine and tumble drier and even washing detergent. Shops and cafes and bars nearby. All you could wish for for the independent traveller who prefers not to stay in a hotel.

So many good things about this place...

  • 5 of 5

First of all, owner Laurie is a great hostess with a perfect balance between privacy and friendliness. Next: the place is really, really nice - IKEA modern with many tasteful touches. All the amenities and appliances [including stack washer/dryer] were first class. Many vacation rentals in Victoria are in basements without much light. This unit is on the ground floor with excellent light in the livingroom and bedroom. Next: the neighborhood, oh-my-god: Cadboro Village shops and the beach are incredible and a true 5 minute walk away. The University of Victoria is equally close in the opposite direction. Any negatives? Not really. The apartment is not big - but definitely big enough.

Great location, suite was well appointed and quiet.

  • 4 of 5

This was a great location for what I wanted to do on the island. I liked the neighborhood feel and getting to know the local community. It was a few blocks from the water and close to markets. The suite was well appointed, I cooked some of my own meals and the kitchen had all the equipment that I needed. I was able to text any questions I had and the owners responded quickly, that was a nice feature as I didn't have to go looking for anyone.

This is a terrific VRBO rental. The suite is private, quiet, clean, modern, comfortable, and a great location - easy to get to and from everything. Free parking right outside the suite entrance is very much appreciated. Thanks Laurie for providing such a nice 'home away from home'. I will definitely book again when I'm visiting Victoria.
