Victoria Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Nestled amongst a stand of notorious Gary Oaks, Waterloo Garden Suite immerses you in the heart of a private, quiet garden sanctuary. Gaze into the trees and observe the acrobatic gray squirrels, traveling from branch to branch. Hear the melodic bird songs of local sparrows, robins, and swallows. Smell the lingering fragrance of the mature, well-kept garden and surroundings just outside your door. Waterloo Garden Suite is a completely self-contained unit from the main house. Enjoy the privacy of a separate entrance and personal south facing patio overlooking the garden.

This 500 square foot vacation rental suite features sleeping and sitting areas with modern furnishings, a fully equipped kitchen, and full en suite bathroom. Waterloo Garden is a self-catered accommodation, where you are free to set your own pace and make the most of your holiday.

Luxuriate over gourmet coffee, fresh scones and home made preserves while lingering on your private patio. Enjoy scrumptious, healthy muffins while you sip herbal tea and curl up on the loves eat in the privacy of your own suite. Imagine no schedule or pre-set breakfast time. Sleep in if you dare. Whether you stay for a night, a weekend, a week, or a month, this beautiful, private garden suite contains everything you will need to ensure a fabulous and memorable stay.

Your hosts, Ron and Cathie, will welcome you with open arms, but there will be no need for awkward conversations and interactions. Your hosts will be available to offer recommendations on dining, attractions, shopping, and more, but you will have the suite and garden all to yourself.

'A quiet, modern couples retreat for a revitalizing stay in beautiful Victoria. Every convenience

imaginable in a 'home away from home' with a garden setting'.

Dexter & Linda Boyd, Winnipeg Manitoba

'A bit if snow, some rainy days, but wonderful sunny ones too!

All spent exploring this beautiful Island from China Beach to Land's End.

And always waiting 'at home' was this beautiful suite and Ron & Cathie's helpful guidance/advice.

Many thanks for their welcome and attention. We loved 'the garden'.

Clint & Judy Toews, Winnipeg Manitoba.

I just returned from staying at this awesome little place. I had a great stay and Cathie and Ron are great hosts. The homemade scones and strawberry jam are so delicious.

I have already booked for next year. I recommend staying here when you want to visit Victoria.

Wonderful retreat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Waterloo Garden Suite for the month of January and we totally enjoyed it.

Everything about the suite was excellent - it is superbly clean, is very comfortable and had everything that we needed (even homemade scones and jam!)

Even in January the garden was beautiful and the view out of the windows was most relaxing.

Cathie and Ron are wonderful hosts.

We highly recommend the suite.

Thank-you Cathie and Ron for making our stay the best!

Waterloo Gardens Suite

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Waterloo Garden Suite was superb.

This property is beautiful, no detail having been overlooked.

In our estimation, it sits comfortably at the top of the list of VRBO guest suites we’ve rented, over many years!

Of course, the in-house made scones & strawberry jam, the groceries found in the fridge and other thoughtful, touches were most welcome.

No craftsman am I, however, my wife and I appreciate fine quality and craftsmanship when we see it …… often critical when we don’t! Obviously this rental unit was designed and constructed with quality materials and professional design. Walls, cupboards, the floor, windows, fixtures, art and the placement of furnishings are all efficiently appropriate. Did I mention the comfort we felt throughout the suite? Fabulous!

How fortunate we feel, to have lived in the unit for the brief time available.

Close to St Michael's School

  • 4 of 5

A clean and well-maintained room, comfy bed, comfy furniture, very helpful owners, small starter breakfast items much appreciated. Photos are accurate.

For me personally, I would have preferred a much smaller TV, to take up less space, and a radio. I also found the suite too far away from the walking beaches and from the funky places of Victoria (e.g. Cook Street Village, Fernwood) and I had to drive more than I would have liked.

Living large like the locals!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this wonderfully efficient unit! Extremely clean and well stocked to make your stay just like home. Close to Oak Bay and one of the best view spots in Victoria, Mount Tolmie Park. Ron and Cathie were wonderful hosts and really shined above the rest of the VRBO's we stayed with during this visit. Great central location to enjoy all of Victoria from. Thanks for a great stay!

A delightful visit...

  • 5 of 5

We spent a very restful week at Ron and Cathie's lovely rental unit in August. It is quite spacious and extremely well designed and appointed. One of our best finds in over 30 years of travel! We were able to cook in a few times and also enjoyed snacks and wine on the deck overlooking the beautiful garden. They went out of their way to make our stay comfortable and easy including all the fixings for breakfasts. A wonderful place in a beautiful city - convenient to everything - we would return in a heartbeat.
