|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
Your 1 BR suite is located in the Heart of the Village of Bear Mountain Golf and Country Club Mountain Resort. This 600 sq ft Luxury suite overlooks the 3rd Fairway, and the Village of Bear Mountain.
The 36-hole Golf Course is co-designed by Jack Nicklaus and his son Steve. There are in fact two courses... The 'Mountain Course' and the 'Valley Course'. They are both set in the foothills of Mount Finlayson and strike the perfect balance between playability and a year round golf experience for golfers of all skill levels. With panoramic mountain, city and ocean views and located only 10-12 minutes from downtown Victoria... You'll fall in love with this world-renowned Golf Course and Village Resort.
Bear Mountain has recently opened the 'Valley Course'... A second Nicklaus-designed 18-hole championship golf course which offers the same world class facilities as the first 18-hole Mountain Course. The new Valley course is a par 71, reaching 7,000 yards from the championship tees, and makes Bear Mountain the first 36-hole Nicklaus designed golf resort in Canada!
And for those guests who would rather explore than putt... There are many opportunities just minutes away from your own front door to explore, go antiquing, rest & relax at the Westin Resort Spa where the 'Full Body Massage' is to-die-for; or you can venture off to Jack's (Nicklaus) Pub & Restaurant for some of the best wings in town. Please Note the Pool is located next door at the Westin and requires a fee to use the facilities.
Or you can catch the Trolley during the summer months and venture down the hill where all the box stores are - From Winners and Home Depot, to Costco, Wal-Mart, and the Brick. Plus lots of restaurants, and gift stores to browse.
And all of this is just steps away from your front door...
Your home-away-from-home includes 10 ft ceilings; Granite, Tile, and Warm Chestnut colored Laminant throughout; Stainless Steel Appliances; In-Suite Laundry; and a gas Fireplace.
This is a brand-new suite that is professionally designed and decorated and includes a private bedroom with a King-sized Sealy Mattress with additional memory foam added to increase the height and comfort of your bed. The 600-1000 thread-count sheets and non-allergenic down-comforter will also ensure that you have a restful nights sleep.
While enjoying your breakfast from your private balcony, you can watch the golfers on the 3rd fairway pass by your elevated suite. Or you can look further down to see all the activities at the Golf Course Club House and local Town Market (due to be complete 2008).
The fully-equipped oversized kitchen features a large separate granite island with an eating bar for 2-4 people.
The comfortable living room is tastefully decorated with a new leather (double-sized pull-out) couch that sleeps 2 more guests; a gas fireplace; a 36' flat screen wall mount TV; quality stereo with CD, tuner, and iPod/MP3 connections.

Frank lives in Edmonton, AB Canada, and purchased their suites in Bear Mountain during the initial construction stages back in 2006.
The partners have been sharing their suites with guests from VRBO ever since the completion of construction back in 2008.
Carmen purchased this condo in 2007
Frank was looking at creating a home away from home... With Frank being an avid golfer, and Bear Mountain being ranked as one of the best (36 hole) courses in Canada, it was an easy decision on where to purchase. Not to mention the Resort is ideally located with quick and easy access to downtown Victoria, the Highlands, Sooke, and the upper Island destinations.
The Resort is similar to Whistler in that you feel like you are in an Alpine resort with all the Luxurious amenities, yet you are also a 12 minute drive into Victoria BC with all of it's tourist attractions and famous landmarks. The Highlands (where Bear Mountain is located) has been fully developed with all of the large Box Stores like, Costco, Walmart, Home Depot, etc... It's just an ideal place to relax, breathe the mountain and ocean air, and even shop or go on tours by day, and enjoy the restaurants and nightlife by night... Or if you'd rather you can stay in at night, and light up the BBQ (and fireplace) and enjoy the view of the heart of the village, with a nice meal, while lounging out on your large balcony. It's all good!
Well I feel very unhappy and deceived about this vacation rental.
I stayed from Aug 14-19th. The ad clearly shows pictures of a pool and hot tub. Then to find there is no pool in the complex at all and you have to go over to the Westin resort and pay a fee?! Incredibly misleading ad. I chose this place because of the pool and planned on spending my days lounging by it, not having one to enjoy ruined my trip.
I also arrived to find the laundry broken, unusable.
The cable tv didn't work.
The bath towels smelled like mildew (hence my desire for working laundry facilities) and were stored under the sink up against the pipes. Definitely don't want to put that against my face thank you.
On the plus side, the unit is very nicely decorated, modern with nice kitchen appliances and the king bed is heavenly.
However, the unit is too warm for a summertime rental. The windows only (inexplicably) open about 4 inches, and you cannot get any kind of air movement. There is a ceiling fan in the bedroom which is good, but the rest of the unit needs fans too for air movement, it's uncomfortable if you aren't directly under the fan (in the bedroom). There is an external a/c unit but it's not vented... so you have to have the patio door open (letting all the warm air in)..defeats the purpose entirely. Not to mention it's too loud to talk over when it's on.
The dishes - there is only service for 4. Not a deal-breaker, but another inconvenience. There are 2 bowls in total.
Patio furniture needs a proper cushion, leaning your back against metal rungs is anything but comfortable. And to be clear, your main view from the patio is a parking lot. Again, the pictures mislead with photos of the golf course, but that's not actually your view. There isn't a lot of traffic so it's not awful, and you can see the mountain which is lovely, but in the interests of being honest and upfront, you are mainly looking at a road and parking lot.
They eventually did send a repair man to fix the laundry, but that was an annoying intrusion, I waited during the agreed-upon time and no one showed up. Then he showed up later when I had plans and it was not convenient... as well, *I* had to phone the cable company and go through all the troubleshooting to get the cable repaired. Totally unacceptable.
For this, I was offered $50 compensation. For a totally ruined trip. Would not stay here again.
The condo is exactly as described. Carmen was very helpful throughout the booking process and our contact there, Edith was very nice. Everything is new and the condo is totally furnished.The only problem is that the trolley no longer runs and there's no public transport, so renters will need to have a car. The nearby Bear Cafe, is great for coffee and sandwiches.
We thoroughly enjoyed the amenities of this condo...it was nicely located with a view of Mt. Finlayson from the outdoor patio, well appointed as far as indoor amenities having everything we would need for any meal prepartion, but there are also a number of dine out options in the condo compound area which we used. It is more like a 40 minute drive to Victoria harbour area during higher traffic times but a nice drive. Lots of close by shopping for all your needs such as food, liquor, beer and some good outlet shops as well. Edith, the site manager was helpful and although she wasn't able to secure us the indoor parking due to mechanical difficulties, parking outside was never a problem. Would certainly use this site/this condo on a return visit in future!
