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

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.

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

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

An intimate wedding like no other!

Our sincere gratitude goes out to both Louise & Bob for an experience we will never forget. On March 8, 2014, we had the pleasure of exchanging our vows in the warm afternoon rain amongst close friends and family. The gazebo offered the reprieve needed for the blushing brides, but if it weren't for the ever accommodating hosts and their multitude of umbrellas, our guests would have been a little wet to say the least! The house itself was breathtaking, we couldn't have asked for a better venue. Everything was PERFECT! Thank you for making our special day just so! We'll be back to enjoy everything this home has to offer. Loved it!!

A Grand New Years Eve

Our group consisted of 19 friends between the ages of 40-55. Louise was so accommodating and organized we soon realized that we had everything we needed for our New Years appetizer extravaganza. We made full use of the house including the grand living room for photos by the Christmas tree, the huge kitchen (it always turns into a kitchen party and THIS kitchen had room for all of us!), the formal dining room where we set up all the food, the big outdoor hot tub, and we can't forget the championship foozball and ping pong matches in the garage! Our host Bob ended up knowing a couple of the hockey guys in our group and they had a great chat. We really brought in 2014 "in style". Everyone in our group had a wonderful time and thoroughly enjoyed the Victoria Garden Estate. Thank you so much Bob and Louise! We hope to repeat it again next year!

Six Star!!!

  • Submitted: Jan 6, 2014
  • Stayed: Dec 2013
My family recently stayed 2 nights at the Garden Estate and cannot express how marvelous this rental was. In addition to my husband and I immediately falling in love with the property, both my teenage daughter and young son enjoyed their stay and the use of the hot tub immensely. The description and photos very accurately represented the property; however, we were still amazed when we arrived as the estate was even better in reality. The entire property and grounds were immaculate, and the owners were super friendly, accessible and helpful. During our stay, we hosted a dinner for 16 people (staff holiday banquet) and had more than enough space to spread out and enjoy the evening, while making great use of the "chef's-dream" kitchen with allowed us to cook multiple entrees with ease, due to the large oven and spacious layout of the kitchen. This was the first time I have rented through VRBO and I would highly recommend it, and this particular property, to others. We will definitely be back. This property necessitates a 6 star rating!

Owner's Response: Thank you Colleen for your wonderful comments and the 6 star rating we really appreciate you sharing your experiences with us. What a great idea you had to host a "holiday banquet" for your staff. We have found many companies like to use our home for executive meetings and functions. It was very nice meeting your family and I am so happy you enjoyed a special Christmas together at our home. We look forward to your return visit. Louise

Great Get Away From The City

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 6, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
We stayed here as a large family and this was a really great place for all of us to get away from the busy city. The beautiful natural surroundings really make this an amazing location to be at. There was lots of open space and our family had a wonderful time observing all the great wild life. Our kids saw plenty of deer, rabbits and horses. We also had many great trips to the beach, which was only a short walk away. Inside, we a great time playing the piano together. The care-takers are very attentive and really ensure all your needs are being taken care of. We will be sure to return.
