My husband and I had the good fortune of visiting our folks in Victoria who had rented the Dragonfly Cottage for the winter season. The cottage is located near the heart of downtown Victoria, close to beautiful Beacon Hill Park and just blocks from the ocean. Pubs, eateries, and coffee shops are a short walk away.
Dragonfly Cottage has been upgraded with thoroughly modern touches--beautiful hardwood floors, oversized windows, simply but elegantly furnished. I commented to our folks several times of the cleanliness and good taste of the owners. We slept on the spare bed and even it was very comfortable. The cottage is warm and welcoming, painted in cream colored ivories with black accents. Not only is the cottage furnished, but the owner has added lovely wall hangings, knickknacks in alcoves and displays. The living room and dining room are light and airy. There is a lovely and warm flow to the home and we were utterly comfortable--it was overcast during our stay in the early spring. For those who like to get out and about on foot, Dragonfly Cottage is located in the heart of a walkable neighbohood. Just a block or two, and you're at the park, the ocean, local pubs, neighborhood store, and a number of different retail establishments and businesses.
Our folks loved the Cottage and their communications with the owner were great. We hope they plan to rent the home again. We'd love to come visit them and stay again at Dragonfly Cottage, as well. I can't imagine anyone renting the cottage who wouldn't feel relaxed and at home in such a cozy, tasteful, and quiet atmosphere.
Truly Dragonfly Cottage was a "Wow!" experience and a jewel of a find by our folks.
On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the best, we give it a 10 wholeheartedly.
