About Tom and Eva Williams
We are active professional classical violinists, who have located to Victoria to enjoy the west coast, after having had busy full performance careers with the Montreal Symphony Orchestra.
Tom and Eva Williams purchased this Studio in 2014
Why Tom and Eva Williams chose James Bay
This home is located just steps to one of the most enjoyable strolls along the ocean, with the view of the majestic Olympic Mountains of Washington State as a backdrop. Being located in James Bay, it is accessible to all amenities, either by walking, biking, or by car. The "Loth Lorien Studio" is attractively decorated including antiques, and has all modern amenities for a comfortable stay in one of Victoria's beautiful Heritage Homes, originally built in 1893.
What makes this Studio unique
It was love at first sight when we saw this house, curiously named "Loth Lorien" on the address plaque. Built before the turn of the 20th century, this example of late Victorian Queen Anne style, stands tall and quiet near the ocean, a location that was just perfect for us when we moved here three years ago. Now it's our home, and we are happy to share it with people who appreciate this heritage character, yet can enjoy modern convenience indoors.

Great Location to see Victoria
We loved this location, so close to the water and so close to downtown. We could get groceries up the road and could see everything we wanted to see just by walking. The folks were very welcoming and the suite was perfect for our needs. Thank you!
Great folks, great location
I have a brother who lives in Victoria and the location was just nearby. While the apartment was not real large it had all we needed, a nice kitchen, great bathroom. Best of all, our landlord was truly concerned about our comfort and checked repeatedly that our needs were met. He even offered advice on what to see in town but we are pretty familiar with Victoria. If you're looking for a nice place at a great price, look no further.
Great little suite to stay in!
Beautiful place, and wonderful hosts!
We had a wonderful vacation in Victoria and were delighted with this cozy apartment. We felt right at home and relaxed with everything we needed for our stay. We loved the location near to the beach and walking trails, a great coffee place, and the inner harbour.
Beautiful, secluded spot in a great location. Surrounded by wonderful gardens and amazingly quiet.
Tom and Eva's place is a real gem. Loved the high ceilings, large windows, and creaky wood floor. Clean and well-kept with everything we needed. Easy walking to downtown, Fishermans Wharf and the beach. Easily accommodated our very late check-in and provided free parking for our rental car. Highly recommended!
Lovely Place, Charming Hosts!
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our 5 night stay in Loth Lorien. It is the perfect location to use as a base for seeing Victoria and exploring other parts of Vancouver Island. The weather was clear and beautiful, so every day we walked along the Straight to take in the breathtaking views of the water and the Olympic mountains. Tom and Eva are so friendly and helpful, suggesting restaurants and places to visit that we thoroughly enjoyed and would not have known about otherwise.
The high ceilings and ample windows in the apartment make it feel spacious, despite its compact size. The kitchen seems bigger in real life than in the pictures and was very convenient for cooking some of our meals. (The grocery store is just two blocks away so mostly I just walked there. ) The bathroom also contains ample storage so we unpacked completely and didn't have to deal with suitcases strewn about to ruin the tasteful décor. As others have mentioned, the Murphy bed is easy to put up and down, and is very comfortable.
We would stay here again in a heartbeat. If fact, we enjoyed it so much that we came away wishing we could move to Victoria!
