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 Victoria

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.

Girls Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I had a wonderful getaway at Victoria Garden Estate. We are from Edmonton and needed a week away from the city. This place was just what we needed. It's very secluded and private but only a short drive from all the amenities. Five min from the airport was a very nice surprise. The house itself is outstanding...nicest house I have ever been in. We felt like movie stars! The property is very large with lots of gardens and the pool was fun. The owners are very nice and helpful. They told us about the many wineries in the area and we had a blast visiting all of them! We will definitly return next summer, thanks again Louise

Owner's Response: Thank you Jessica, Chelsea and Keely for sharing your comments with our other guests and I am very pleased you enjoyed yourselves at Victoria Garden Estate. Our large home was perfect for your Women's Getaway with the private pool, hot tub and extensive gardens where you can sit back and relax with your good friends. This home has spacious kitchen, dining and family rooms that make it ideal for large gatherings. With 6 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms we can accommodate 15-18 guests. We are close to the beach, hiking trails and shopping is just 5 minutes away. If you are planning on returning I can provide a private wreath making class for your group. It is easy and alot of fun! With thanks, Louise

A Wonderful Christmas!

  • 5 of 5

I am late with this review but I had to share it as this is the season that we spent at Victoria Garden Estate. Our family gets together every second year to spend Christmas together. As our family has grown, (15 of us now with our children and grandchildren) it has become impossible to house all of us under one roof. So, we decided to find a home that could house us all together for the holidays. We found this lovely Estate home and were delighted when we found out it was available for our dates. We spent 4 days at the "Big House" as we affectionately named it, and I can not imagine a better place to stay. Waking up on Christmas morning was something I will never forget...a fire burning in the Great Room, enough space for us all to gather round and open our gifts, and a large enough dining room to seat us all for Christmas dinner. The hot tub, the ping pong area and the piano were all wonderful extras. I think of this experience now as the season has come around again, and it is unanimous...we can't wait for next year when we can all be together once again in the "Big House". Thank you so much for sharing your beautifully decorated home so that we could make our holiday memorable! We look forward to Christmas 2015!

Highly recommended getaway

  • 5 of 5

After a lot of comparison research, my fiancé and I chose Victoria Garden Estate as the location for a retreat for our families the week before our wedding. We had 19 people with three generations stay, and it was perfect! The large, well-equipped and open sunroom eating area was great for our big group meals. We enjoyed the outdoors (including deer sightings and ripe apples on the apple tree), especially the pool, hot tub, and peaceful gardens, as well as the indoor seating areas and ping-pong tables. The beautiful house was well-equipped and very well-organized with all necessary basics – all we needed to bring was our food, toiletries, and clothes. Only the wifi was sometimes hard to access, but not a big deal, given that we were there to visit. I appreciated Louise and Bob's friendly and unobtrusive help, especially walking directions to the nearby beaches, which we used many times. All in all I'd highly recommend Victoria Garden Estate, which easily and beautifully brought our plans for our family get-together to life.

Family Reunion Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 14 had our annual reunion here and it was a great place to stay! Best house for accommodating such a large group that we've ever rented-- and we've been doing this for 15 years. The house is large enough and open enough to handle a lot of traffic; kitchen was excellently equipped and again, big enough and open enough for a group to prepare dinner together; hot tub and pool both worked and got a lot of use. We LOVED the sunroom right off the kitchen and the gazebo in the yard. My bed was super comfortable and the location is very quiet at night. My only comment is that 3 bathrooms, while it's more than most of our reunion houses have had, were not really enough for us but I give this property an "excellent" anyway because it deserves it. Louise is attentive and takes care of whatever might need it right away. The area is beautiful, many lovely walks, easy access to Sidney and Victoria and the ferries. Plenty to do and a great place to call home base for day trips kayaking, touring, shopping, whatever you like to do.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Our family consisting of 12 adults and 4 small children just returned from a delightful stay of one week at Victoria Garden Estates. While there our daughter and her husband renewed their wedding vows in the lovely garden on the property.

Louise and Bob were very accommodating to our needs and their attention to detail is reflected in their home and property. Louise was always available to us to answer questions or concerns that we might have. The pool and gardens were beautifully maintained.

We all enjoyed cooking together in the large well appointed kitchen and eating areas.

Our adult children enjoyed various outdoor activities in the Victoria area including scuba diving, fishing and zip lining. My husband and I took a more relaxed approach enjoying the Butchart Gardens and the Royal BC museum. Nearby Sidney is a delightful area with

fun shops and restaurants to explore.

We would recommend Victoria Garden Estates if you are looking for a venue for a family reunion or get-a-way.
