BEAUTIFUL 2 BR SUITE BETWEEN VICTORIA AND SIDNEY

Saanich House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

“Welcome home” to Wallace House, a vacation rental suite located between Victoria and Sidney in beautiful Saanichton. Perfectly located, we are only 10 minutes away from the famous Butchart Gardens, Victoria International airport, the Swartz Bay Ferry Terminal, and the Anacortes Ferry Terminal. Victoria is an easy 20 minute drive away. Sidney is even closer, a 10 minute drive. Wallace House is situated on over half an acre. Although we are in the country, we are an easy walk to a major grocery store, banks, restaurants, coffee shops and all other amenities. We are adjacent to walking and bicycling routes and trails. We have views across the farm land to the ocean, Gulf Islands and Mount Baker. Our guests can walk to a local beach in about 20 minutes.

Our vacation suite has over 1,100 square feet of comfortable living, suitable for couples or families, up to four people. We supply kitchen appliances and utensils for all your cooking needs, including coffee and tea. Initial breakfast makings are provided. Laundry facilities are also available. There is no smoking on the premises.

Guestbook comments from the owner
An amazing and homely suite - it has all the lovely touches that make it feel like home. Everything is thought of that makes you feel you're staying with friends rather than an impersonal hotel chain. Gloria & Kirk, thanks for making our family feel so welcome. It has been so lovely to relax for a few days and the suite is so large and the breakfast is also a lovely bonus - the jam & muffins were a treat! I will tell everyone in Australia about your lovely suite - and we will be back in a few years!

Your hosts, Kirk and Gloria, moved here from the Vancouver area in 2006 to retire. We are really enjoying the laid-back Island life. We have been married for 31 years and our children live in Victoria. We enjoy walking on the local trails and Kirk has bicycled all over the Peninsula.

The Owner purchased this house in 2002

We love the country location and ocean views on our half-acre rural property. We enjoy all the walking trails and bike routes in the area and can walk to the beach in about 20 minutes. We have arbutus and Douglas Fir trees, with rabbits, eagles, quail and deer spotted regularly. We have feeders for the hummingbirds, and see lots of other species as well.

Our guests can easily walk to Saanichton Village for groceries, restaurants and other amenities. Our suite is very large with 2 bedrooms, a private entrance and off-road parking. There is a private lawn with patio set to enjoy the view and gardens.

Our stay started with a warm helpful welcome from the owners. We found the bright, spacious and clean basement suite just what we needed. Kitchen was well stocked including all you needed for breakfast. Appreciated the laundry facilities that were included. Location was rural with quick access to local town and area attractions. The airport is just minutes away which was important for us. Owners were awesome hosts. Would stay again if we are in area and suite is available.

BEST KEPT SECRET OF VICTORIA

  • 5 of 5
Wallace House was beyond our expectations. The pictures on the website don't do justice to the spacious environment. The property was very well maintained and our hosts, Gloria and Kirk were so welcoming and easy to talk to. Providing breakfast (homemade muffins, jam and other continental breakfast food) was a delight especially after traveling the day before. Being centrally located, we were able to enjoy the entire Island with short trips to experience all Victoria had to offer. Our hosts gave us good tips on days to visit Butchard Gardens, where to get the best High Tea, and other places of interest.
We will not hesitate to share our experiences with others who plan on a visit to Victoria. Thanks again for everything.

WE WISH WE COULD GIVE IT 10 STARS!

We have stayed in numerous vacation suites (VRBO) and have to admit that they all pale in comparison to Wallace House. The clean and spacious apartment is like having a home away from home.........only better. Gloria and Kirk's hospitality and knowledge of the area makes everything seem so easy. Their willingness to accommodate us in every way was beyond comparison. The attention to detail (local maps, The Wallace House information guide) is excellent. Everything from the Hot Tub to the best equipped kitchen we have ever seen, simply makes this a place we will definitely return to. All we can say is Thank-You Gloria and Kirk!!!!!

Our stay at Wallace House was most enjoyable. Gloria was extremely helpful without being invasive. The little details from condiments in the fridge to the fresh cut flowers on the dining room table made our stay so special. This is much better than a cramped hotel room. As we were visiting our son who moved to Victoria last December, we wanted to make a home cooked meal. The kitchen is roomy with lots of counter space to work. We also enjoyed playing cards around the dining room table. I would highly recommend a stay at Wallace House.

We loved staying at Wallace House! The suite was large, very clean and extremely quiet. The hosts were very helpful and had lots of suggestions for siteseeing. Sidney was beautiful, and we enjoyed strolling down Beacon Avenue and poking in the shops. The hot tub was perfect for the end of a busy day. Thank you, Gloria and Kirk, for sharing your lovely home with us! (Sheryl P., Coquitlam, B.C.)
