For the first time in 10 years we are opening our Malahat retreat to the public. This waterfront hideaway boasts ocean and mountain views. From fishing off the dock, and peaceful morning kayaks you get a taste of West Coast living at its finest. Great location allows our guests to easily explore downtown Victoria as well as the many up island attractions Vancouver Island has to offer. This 1500 square foot rancher offers 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The extra large living room features a queen sized sofa bed, wood burning fireplace and breathtaking views of Finlayson Arm. The charming galley style kitchen is fully equipped for your convenience and the cozy nook makes meal times a delight. The property features paths down to a private access beach & dock, a playset for families, and beautiful old cedars, douglas firs and arbutus trees. This home comfortably sleeps 8, but larger groups can be accommodated with some notice. Get the benefits of living in the woods with modern conveniences only 15 minutes away.

Beautiful, very comfortable
Stunning view of the water and tucked into the woods. Very quiet. The home is thoughtfully organized. Directions to the property were great. I happily recommend this place!
Close to town away from the crowds
This was the perfect spot to base our family getaway to explore the Southern part of the Island. From Butchart Gardens to Cathedral Grove we were mid way and got it all done and more. Quiet, relaxing and the views!!!! 7 of us comfortably fit in and a nice well equipped home to make your stay easy. Thanks Charmaine for offering your wonderful retreat!!!!
A knockout rental. Rented for a girls weekend away, and couldn't have had a more wonderful experience. Fit 9 of us easily, without feeling crowded (the massive and open living room is fantastic, and view even more idyllic in person). Having the private dock was great (path down is slightly steep-something to consider depending on your guests). As an older property, it very clean and well kept. The seclusion and gorgeous greenery really makes for a relaxing retreat. Charmaine is a fantastic owner-immediate response and accommodated every need we had. Only heads up is the drive into the city (approx 30mins). Just something to take into account if you plan nights out/reservations in town. Thank you ever so much for providing the perfect location for such a memorable weekend for us Charmaine!!!
Great place to spend time with friends
Had a blast!
Exceeded our expectations
Very secluded, quiet, beautiful...yet close to everything.
Beautiful Home, Beautful Views
I booked the property for a weekend away with friends and it was my first experience with VRBO. From the minute it was booked Charmaine was easy to contact and quick to respond with any questions I had and very accommodating when I had to make changes to the guest numbers.
We loved sitting on the patio in front of the fire and exploring down at the dock and beach (we were even visited by 5 seals swimming around the dock). It felt like you were miles from civilization but it was so easy to get to and from.
I would definitely recommend this place to any family and friends and I look forward to another stay here soon.
