About Louise Hansson
I was born in Burnaby, B.C., of Icelandic and Scottish descent. Settled in rural North Saanich to raise a family, grew a pressed flower business and ran our garden centre in downtown Sidney. I continue to design our product line selling to fine gift galleries, garden centres, museums, art galleries and gift shops in North America.
Louise Hansson purchased this House in 1981
Why Louise Hansson chose North Saanich
Our family has grown and gardern centre sold wishing to continue the laughter, love and life that make this home such a wonderful place to be. Victoria Garden Estate became a vacation house in 2004, our spring and summer months booked solid with family reunions and vacation rentals.
What makes this House unique
Victoria Garden Estate was built around a passion for antiques and the love of gardening. Built in 1981 the architectural design gives this stately home an air of antiquity. With features such as the grand staircase replica of the one found in the Craigdarroch Castle in Victoria, B.C The house was designed to facilitate 2 beautiful floor to ceiling antique fireplaces which are the reason for the high ceilings and large rooms.

Beautiful, charming property with plenty of amenities!
Absolutely beautiful property, charming and interesting house with tons of amenities. We loved all the antique furniture and it added a unique and personal touch to our stay. There was plenty of room for everyone and it made staying the weekend with a group of ladies very comfortable as everyone could go off and find their own space to relax or be alone.
Thank you so much. It made our weekend away so comfortable and relaxing!
Thank you for submitting a review for our vacation house and I am really happy it worked out for your girls weekend. Sorry I never got a chance to meet you but I hope you get a chance to return in the future. Looking forward to a great spring season!

Perfect Wedding Weekend
We rented Victoria Garden Estate for our small, family only wedding. Twelve of us stayed at the estate for three nights, and other family members came out to the estate during the days/evenings. The location and setting was absolutely perfect for our needs - gardens, pool, hot tub, kitchen, games room - we had a marvellous weekend with our family. Thanks Louise and Bob...it was everything we had hoped for and more!
Thank you for sending us your review and we are so happy that your wedding weekend went so well. I hope we get the opportunity to have you return someday in the future. Enjoy your summer!
Beautiful location for a family gathering!
My fiancé and I were in town for a destination wedding and his whole family stayed at the Victoria Garden Estate. It was a great location in order to keep all of the family together and enjoy each other's company, great central gathering place. The property and house are gorgeous and there is enough room for everyone and for big family dinners. It really is an estate with a grand entrance, staircase, sitting rooms and tons of bedrooms, very spacious and grand decor. The kitchen has plenty of room and all of the tools needed for a large meal, my father-in-law cooked a rehearsal dinner for over 20 people and it went fabulously. Louise helped us out with a table setup for everyone as well. Louise and Bob are great hosts, very accommodating and friendly. I would definitely recommend the estate for a large family getaway. The North Saanich area is also beautiful with so much to do. The house is just a short walk to the water. Thanks for a beautiful family getaway and for helping make the occasion special!
Thank you for booking Victoria Garden Estate for your wedding week. We enjoyed meeting your family and we hope they were able to experience some of the beautiful sites in the area. We are happy your family getaway was special, this means alot to us! Thank you for taking care of our home during your stay and we welcome you for a return visit sometime. Congratulations to you both!
