Bruce and Linda Billings retired to Victoria in 2000 after both having a career with the Edmonton Police Service. They enjoy meeting new people and are dedicated to providing their guests with unparalleled service. Their home is very private and off the street on a 'panhandle' lot so a quiet, residential feel is what they hope their guests will enjoy. With the beach only steps away, they think it's a great place to enjoy all the benefits Victoria has to offer.

Our property in the Gonzales Bay area is very central to Oak Bay, the Cook Street Village & downtown and located on a panhandle lot off the main road.

I COULDN'T HAVE PICKED A BETTER VACATION RENTAL!

I couldn't have picked a better vacation rental!
  • 5 of 5
This walkout ground-floor suite, expertly overseen by Linda and Bruce, was all I expected from the pictures, and more..... On cool June evenings the electric fireplace gave out a cozy heat and the many windows brought the outside 'in' during the day. I loved reading in the cozy yard that is directy out the front door of the suite. This enclosed area is free of wind plus one can enjoy the many hanging flower baskets.

The kitchen was outfitted for any cooking I wanted to do and the dining area, although I didn't need it, was full-sized. The Murphy Bed was very comfortable with drawers and cuboards at the side for my belongs, along with a big closet. The desk was great for my computer work and their WiFI worked without a hitch. The TV was conveniently located with the ability to watch it in bed or from the very comfortable European lounge chairs. The big bathroom and shower were also appreciated.

The location is excellent: one block south and you're on Beach Drive, the main road along the coast of Victoria; just a few blocks North (then left on Fairfield Rd) and you are at a mall with an excellent grocery store and an adjacent gas station; and also, just minutes North is Oak Bay and its quaint village with coffee houses, cafes, restaurants and shopping. All in all a convenient place to stay for a week or month. I stayed a month!

HOME SUITE HOME

  • 5 of 5
Thank you Linda and Bruce for a most first class stay!
Your Gonzales Garden Suite , my dream home for the month of May, was perfect in EVERY respect --decor, design of suite, cleanliness, privacy and location. And To think my own private land line, a morning news paper and a welcoming bouquet of flowers on the dining table when we arrived.
.As hosts you were most gracious,helpful and considerate. . delightfully sampled several of the eateries you suggested --loved De'lish
I could live in this suite year round and then be able to everyday continue my half block walk to Gonzales Beach and onto Clover Point then back to do Tai Chi in my own private courtyard or sit in patio chairs dreaming.
Away from the tourist traps and hotels downtown but only minutes from that hive of activity gave me exciting daily options Delightlfully, I didn't feel like a tourist
Even my 12 year old dog felt at home inside the suite or dozing on the patio .She dotted on the attention you gave her.
Telling friends about this gem but with mixed feelings, for fear you will become so booked up I won't be able to return
With much appreciation!

It was such a pleasure having you and your dear pooch as our guests. We are very pleased that you were happy and comfortable in our neighbourhood away from the downtown core but still close to the action. Thank you for your business and I hope to see you back again.

QUIET GARDEN RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
I recently spent a week at the Gonzales Garden Suite and thoroughly enjoyed it. Linda and Bruce have a beautiful secluded property which gives one the feeling of being in their own private garden retreat. It is set off the street in a peaceful residential neighbourhood, so if you want quiet surroundings you have chosen the perfect spot. It is a great location, just a block from Gonzales Beach, a short walk to the Abkhazia Gardens, and easily accessible to restaurants and shopping. The suite is spotless, bright and modern, with every convenience you need for short or longer term stays. The private outdoor patio and sitting area is unique from most home stays. This is definitely a wonderful find and I look forward to a return visit. Thanks for your warm hospitality Linda and Bruce.

Excellent beautiful peaceful private suite. Close to ocean view Dallas Road. Spectacular sights within walking distance. Great doggie beach and close to all amenities. Owners were great and made us feel at home. We felt so safe there. It was hard to leave and would love to return.

Dear Bruce and Linda, Please accept our sincerest thanks for allowing us to experience your very lovely Gonzales Garden Suite while vacationing in Victoria in early September. We were extremely pleased to see that everything that you had advertised was absolutely accurate including the appearance and amenities that were being offered. The suite was lovely, immaculate and beautifully appointed. Thank you for your attentiveness in making sure that we were comfortable, well taken care of and for advising us about the nearby activities, shopping, local attractions and for answering any questions that we may have had. We enjoyed walking down to the ocean as well as touring your local area. Thank you both for being such excellent hosts and for providing such a peaceful and uplifting environment. We would highly recommend your lovely facility. Stewart & Barb, Devon, Ab.

GONZALES GARDEN SUITE A GEM

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at the Gonzales Garden Suite for several nights while we were in town delivering our son to UVic. The suite appears new, it is well appointed, tastefully decorated and the perfect size for two. The private outdoor covered and garden sitting areas were a real bonus, as was the gas BBQ for those nights when you feel like eating in. The suite's proximity to the ocean made for many pleasant walks. We certainly hope to find this suite available the next time we visit Victoria.
