Cosset Cottage

  • 4 of 5
Very quaint, cozy home in a nice neighborhood of Victoria. Easy to get to places such as the Inner Harbor or Butchart Gardens, and close to a pretty beach and playground just a short walk down the road. Our daughter loved the bunk bed! Only minor criticisms: doorknob on one of the doors to the main bedroom came off the first time I used it; lucky I had a Swiss Army knife and some experience with older fixtures! Given the long days of summer, it would be nice to have some curtains or blinds in the back bedroom that close more fully to help little ones fall asleep. And, the corner of the shower tub nearest the door had a bit of leaking around it. But overall, a very pleasant, restful vacation rental in one of our favorite getaway cities.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments; the glass shower door has been adjusted and the doorknob repaired; if anything arises during a guests stay we are happy to deal with it then rather than later. The wooden blinds in the second bedroom are full length, with silk side curtains.

Cosset Cottage

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our 8 day stay at the cottage. We were warmly welcomed by Madeleine to the cottage where we found fresh flowers and fruit awaiting us. The light and spacious kitchen was well equipped with appliances and dishes; the bedding and towels were very nice.
Our two granddaughters, who visited often, enjoyed the array of games and puzzles and we all chose a good book from the shelves in the living room. It was very pleasant and cozy for that rainy week.
It was a short walk down the hill to a little shopping centre and food market and then on again to the sandy beach. If you wanted more exercise you could walk up the hill the other way towards the university.
Madeleine made every effort to make our stay a memorable one.
Many thanks.

We loved this Cottage

  • 5 of 5
We loved this cottage. We rented for a week in March having travelled from the UK with our daughter for three weeks and we would have loved to have stayed longer. Madeleine and her husband could not have been nicer - a lovely couple; friendly, helpful and kind. It struck us that Madeleine has gone out of her way to make this a homely place, and the furniture was lovely.The cottage was cosy, snug, tidy and clean (we made a point of taking our shoes off at the door when we came in because we could see the care that had gone into this property). Cadboro Bay is just lovely and within a couple of minutes walk there is a Starbucks, a grocery store a pharmacy and a lovely pub where the people were so welcoming- we made some good friends. The cottage is very well located and really easy for walks along the coast and yet near the main facilities. We loved the Ducks in the park in Victoria. We will stay here again. For us it is perfect!

Perfectly located small cottage

  • 5 of 5
What a find. The area is lovely. There is proximity to everything you need to make for a relaxing get away.....close to the beach, a fabulous, small supermarket that specializes in local foods, great pub for casual and moderately priced dinners. The cottage is very well appointed and comfortable. NO traffic noise at all. A quiet area away from major highways. It is a runners paradise with fabulous routes both on pavement and along the beach and paths in the reserve area. It was a quick and beautiful drive everywhere.....along the beachfront to Victoria, onto the Sooke Highway west, the back roads to Sidney and Butchart Gardens. There is excellent shopping and some good restaurants in Oak Bay Village.We can't wait to bring our bikes in warmer weather. Thank you, Madeleine.

So Very charming!

  • 5 of 5
My first time experiencing Victoria, and I have only fond memories now of my visit, and of your delightful cottage.
The weather couldn't have been better.A perfect start to a vacation that would lead us on an Alaskan Cruise.

We had candle light dinner one of the nights out on the patio. Loved having the honking geese flying right over the cottage mornings. That was my alarm clock.

The bed was very very comfortable and the pretty embroidered linen was the added tough. We even picked blackberries off the bushes along the side of the cottage to have for breakfast.

Being able to walk to the market and pharmacy, not to mention, the beach, was great. A perfect little retreat. In fact we are considering a Quilting Retreat with friends sometime soon.

Most sincerely,
Kris.

Perfefct Getaway !!

  • 4 of 5
Our family stayed at the cottage for 6 days ... we LOVED IT ! The backyard and gardens were a PERFECT place for our 2 year old to play and play and play ! This was a very relaxing getaway from the beach.
The cottage matched the description perfectly. A washer Dryer is a plus !! The only downfall was the traffic noise out front - located on the main street and disturbing for the master bedroom - also a couple of fans would have made the hot evenings a little more comfortable :)
The parks and beach are very close and the area is beautiful. The pub wouldn;'t allow us in for dinner (4 pm) because we had a young child - Victoria just a short drive away & most restaurants deliver
Thabk you Madelaine for a great little get away !!
