About kirk and Gloria Robinson
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.
kirk and Gloria Robinson purchased this house in 2002
Why kirk and Gloria Robinson chose Saanich
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.
What makes this house unique
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.
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!
