SEASIDE TRANQUILITY OCEANFRONT HOT TUB -15 MINUTES TO DOWNTOWN

Victoria House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 8)

Consider this waterfront home a quiet retreat, romantic getaway, or a fabulous family vacation. Relax in a new top of the line Hot Tub with an ozone filtration system and a health spa quality 'micro bubbles' feature. Private beach access. Lots of windows provide light and spectacular ocean views all day.

Please see reviews below at the end of this description. (Also VRBO 376457, Home away 3009253)) for Seaside Tranquility

Our comfortable west coast waterfront home is located at the end of a quiet lane 15 min. from downtown Victoria but has a country feel. Search D'Arcy Lane, Saanich for map. Stairs down to the beach are steps away. There is lots of on site parking, up to three cars.

The rate is for a group of six people, although we can accommodate up to nine for an extra charge. This home's old world charm includes in-laid oak flooring throughout with fine architectural details, such as special crown moldings and leaded glass entrance doors.

From most rooms, you have a 180 degree view of the ocean. The house is built on rock overlooking incredible beauty and wildlife. For early risers, watch the colorful sunrises and perhaps whales in the distance or an eagle or heron searching for a delicious treat in the sea. Often seals or otters love to play nearby entertaining each other and you. Watch cruise ships in the distance near the San Juan Islands, or a kayak drifting by, with snow capped mountains in the background. Our property is fenced so safe for young children.

The living area offered is over 2600 sq. ft. The elegant foyer is spacious with immediate views of the sea from another door to the oceanfront patio, stretching over 100 ft. The outdoor hot tub is close by, lovely for ocean gazing in warmth. The large, but cozy, living room and dining room are filled with picture windows providing abundant light, perfect for gatherings. Cable TV in living room and internet throughout the house. A 300 ft.² glass sunroom overlooks a lovely Zen style garden with lovely views of the ocean as well. The double size kitchen is a chef's delight!

The master bedroom with queen bed and balcony overlooking the ocean is a spacious almost 275 ft.². Jetted jacuzzi tub is upstairs. The two single bed rooms are across the hall and another bedroom with cable TV, queen bed and adjoining bathroom with toilet and sink is on the main floor.

Restaurants, shopping and organic markets are close by. Within 2 km are two golf courses and mini-golf for the children. Nearby is the Lochside trail, excellent for cycling long distances or jogging in a country setting.

Downtown you'll find the Royal BC Museum, the Wax Museum, the Empress Hotel and Undersea Gardens. You might like a horse drawn carriage ride. A short 15 min. drive northwest are the famous Butchart Gardens and Butterfly World. We are within 20 to 25 min. from the airport and the BC or Washington ferries.

Our climate is mild. We usually have just a few days of snow, if any, in Winter. It does rain with lots of dry, sunny days, creating perfect conditions for year-round gardens. We are famous for daffodils in January! As tranquil and sunny as you'll find our seaside in Spring and Summer, the exciting winter storms are invigorating to watch from your cozy living room.

You will find your home away from home a tranquil haven for relaxation and noticing nature and wildlife at its finest. Please email for more information and photos, or check out our website link below.

Reviews

'We arrived and you were very welcoming and helpful.

Great place. Thanks for a wonderful time Donna and for being so accommodating. I appreciated it. We all had a wonderful time and our people really appreciated your hospitality. We will definitely keep in touch. I appreciate your generosity and may look to re book in the future as well as refer others.'

Rick.J.H., Edmonton, Alberta May, 2013

'We are departing very early (@6a). We really enjoyed the house; it was perfect for us. Thank you very much. Your guests.'

Alaska, September, 2012

'Hi Donna- just wanted to say thanks again for renting your beautiful home to us. We had a great and relaxing vacation and enjoyed our stay (as well as the views) tremendously. Thanks again,'

Matt P., Seattle, Washington, August, 2012

'I'd be happy to be a positive reference and, yes, it's fine to use my comments.

I am going through the pictures and video taken during the visit to Victoria. With days set aside for salmon fishing, whale watching, Butchart Gardens, High Tea at the Empress and a tour of Hatley Castle (Mark and Emily were married there 9 years ago), trips into town for meals, and an occasional walk along your beach, our time was quite full. It helped to have such a nice home to rest in each evening and collect ourselves for the next day's adventure.

Thank you for opening your ocean side home to us. Being there made the trip all the more restful and enjoyable.'

Richard V., Dallas, Texas, July, 2012

'Thank you. We enjoyed our stay at your house. Thank you for sharing it and thank you for all this information! '

Cindi M., San Antonio, Texas, July, 2012

'Thank you for letting us borrow your home - views were spectacular!'

L., N., and Kids, Medicine Hat, Alberta, May, 2012

'Thanks, Donna! We loved this place! We hope to see you again.'

Donna purchased this house in 2009

Why Donna chose Victoria

Our dream has been to own a waterfront home in Victoria, in a tranquil setting with lots of character and charm, and we found it!

It was quite a joyous experience to have coordinated with Donna my stay as she was helpful and very reasonable in accommodating my special needs. I have stayed at nice locations and would not go back due to owners I have dealt with; Donna really stands amongst the best of them. Thank You, Donna.

Perfect stay for a family or couple!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of six stays in Victoria for about 3 weeks each summer. This is our 3rd rental house and our favorite by far! The pictures are accurate, but my favorite view is the ocean from the master bedroom. Our favourite room is the sun room where we found ourselves almost every night. The house is in a very quiet location so, while you are close to everything (shopping, groceries, a couple nice restaurants....) you feel so peaceful and 'away from it all'. Morning walks on the beach are wonderful (they have private access). Bring your water shoes! There are walking/biking trails close too. We found the owner to be very nice and responsive -- not intrusive at all. We are renting the house again for summer 2014 -- I am really looking forward to my early morning coffee while sitting outside and watching the ocean. One day I hope to visit in the Fall just to enjoy the scenery and relax. Perfect!

Review for Seaside Tranquility Oceanfront

  • 2 of 5
Property is beautiful and very spacious for six people. It was very well maintained; kitchen facilities and bathroom amenities were sufficient. My friends and I rented this place over the weekend to participate in a dragon boat race at Elk Lake.

However, a word of warning for tenants staying with their friends: it seems the homeowner will check up often. I'm not sure if it's because my company and I seemed to be of a younger crowd, but the homeowner visited the property on three separate occasions for various reasons, which we found quite inconvenient.

Overall, we found our stay agreeable and satisfactory. We probably will not return or recommend this location to any of our friends who may be racing or taking a vacation near the same site unless they don't mind having frequent check ups by the homeowner during their vacation.

What a wonderful, spacious, beautiful place to stay

  • 5 of 5
We had an absolutely wonderful time. The place was spotlessly clean, and the pictures just don't do it justice. We spent so much time just sitting in the living room enjoying the view, and cooking in the expansive kitchen. The sunroom is also a gem.

The access to the beach is fantastic, and going out at low tide is great.

Comfortably slept 6 adults and 3 kids. On one of the quietest little streets I could imagine, almost really a country road just off the main road. Fantastic!

Great place for a family gathering.

  • 5 of 5
"This home was the ideal place for a relaxed family gathering. The home is clean and comfortably furnished, and there is ample living space in a beautiful and private setting. The access to a small private beach is a definite asset, and we enjoyed all the outdoor living spaces. The kitchen accommodates cooking for a group, and we all felt at home and welcome in the space. I would definitely recommend this property to friends."

We were able to spend a week in this lovely home and truly enjoyed our stay.

The view of the ocean from the master bedroom and living room were amazing. We had fun exploring the coast at low tide but remember your water shoes as it is quite a rocky walk up the beach.

The house is in a good location. There are several other beach access locations just down the street. We also enjoyed a nice lunch at The Beach House restaurant which was just a short walk away. Mattick's Farm has a wonderful 36 hole mini golf course along with a market, wine shop and various other merchants not far from the house.

The listing pictures are accurate and the house was clean when we arrived. I would recommend adding room darkening curtains to the bedrooms. Also, the only tv in the house with cable was in the main floor bedroom so we had to hook up our ipad to the living room tv in the evening as we had a child sleeping in that bedroom. Not a deal breaker but it is nice to have the option after a long day spent exploring.
