Our home is a comfortable, welcoming house in a great location for your visit to Victoria with easy walking or biking access to downtown, the inner harbour, Beacon Hill park, Cook Street Village and the waterfront on Dallas Road. The house, built in 1914, has been fully modernised in the last ten years to provide 21st century comfort in a period environment.
The space. The accommodation is perfect for two couples or a family. The upper level provides a sitting room, dining room, kitchen, master bedroom (king size bed and full ensuite bathroom) and a guest bathroom.

The outside space also includes a patio at the front of the house – perfect for evening cocktails as the sun goes down.
