Overview

Victoria House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms plus playroom/bunkbed room, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

This unique, artistic, beautiful house is located on a quiet, tree lined street in JAMES BAY, half a block from the ocean and only a 10-15 min. walk to the inner harbor and downtown Victoria. You do not need a car to enjoy your holiday in Victoria in this location!. Cruise ships line the docks and miles of beaches are there for you to enjoy.

The house is 2300 sq feet (1150 sq feet on two levels) . It is very light, open concept, and a beautiful mixture of 'West Coast meets Urban living' (old fir beams and polished concrete floors, modern kitchen/bathroom and old fir floors). Upstairs are 3 bedrooms, all with queen sized beds, cozy down filled duvets, open concept kitchen and living room that stimulates your senses with its harmonious use of colors, textures, Art, and attention to detail. The owner is an artist/textile designer from Germany and her house is an expression of who she is. There is a bathroom with a claw foot bathtub upstairs and a second bathroom with a large shower stall downstairs.

Downstairs there is a large second living/TV/piano/reading room with heated flooring and lots of daytime light. There is another large room that leads into the courtyard that serves as the 4th bedroom with bunk beds and would make a great playroom for the kids/teenagers.

What else is there to say...the pictures will speak for themselves I think. This will feel like a home away from home and the location is perfect if you enjoy experiencing the cultural events, fine dining and city life of Victoria in combination with the ocean, kayaking, beaches etc. half a block away. Enjoy!

Why femke woud chose Victoria

When my daughter and her family moved to Victoria (from Toronto) in 2005, I wanted to be close to them and my little granddaughter. I fell in love with this unique house, previously owned by an artist also. Since I don't drive, the location was perfect. I now spend my time between Ontario (where my son lives)and Victoria and since recently, also some winter months in Arizona.

What makes this house unique

I enjoy being so close to the ocean and going for a morning walk. I often stop for coffee or lunch at the Ogden point cafe (on the ocean!) and enjoy watching the cruise ships dock at the pier. I can do all my shopping in James Bay village which is merely a 5 min walk away. I love walking to Beacon hill park (7 min walk) , the petting zoo, ponds and playgrounds (2) with my granddaughter and enjoy the beautiful peace and beauty of the West coast nature. The inner harbor with great restaurants, street performers , buzzing night life, parliament buildings, The Royal B.C museum and Imax theatre, and summer festivals is just a 10 min walk from my house. I appreciate beauty, harmony, simplicity and color and my house is an expression of my inner world. I enjoy the spaciousness of this house with many choices of rooms to sit, read, enjoy company, make art, play piano or watch a movie.

Guestbook comments from the manager

"Staying her was lovely-a delight. We enjoyed the design of the home (the high ceilings, skylights, Art and simplicity of the appearance) as well as the proximity to the ocean which we visited daily. Being able to celebrate Christmas in a home, rather than a hotel, made our family gathering so much more meaningful and comfortable. Thank you for your hospitality and for sharing your house with us. We leave with fond memories of our stay here. The Stewart Family.

Great Location, Great House. The perfect girls getaway!

  • 5 of 5
Myself and 6 girlfriends stayed in this beautiful house for 3 nights. It was perfect. The location was great for walking downtown, walking to the ocean and getting in and out of town. There was ample room for all of us and the house was stocked with everything we needed. We lucked out that the weather was gorgeous so we didn't spend a lot of time in the house during the day, but when we did, the skylights turned the sitting room into our very own sun room!
Femke made us feel more than welcome and even made sure we had a blender in the house for our pre-run smoothies. Anything that could be done to make our stay more comfortable was done. Should we choose run in Victoria again, we will be back!

Extremely comfotable accommodation with ideal location

  • 5 of 5
Our daughter married in Victoria over the Xmas/New Year period and we rented this house on line in order to accommodate our extended family. In the end we were seven including 88 year old parents.
The house was perfect. The furnishings were tasteful and the quality of the dishes, cutlery and serving dishes was amazing for a rental. The beds were extremely comfortable and the linens were of the highest quality Also we were able to accommodate extra guests around the dinner table.
We have rented quite a few houses around the world and this one does stand out in terms of quality and value for money!

A Weekend Escape

  • 5 of 5
We easily found this property on line, and loved being there from the first moment we walked in. A short walk to downtown allowed us a full weekend of shopping, dinning, and enjoying the local ambiance of beautiful Victoria. 9 of us stayed for 4 days and we were pleasantly surprised with the spaciousness of the accommodations. Lots of room in the kitchen (we cooked a full turkey dinner) and we were provided with all the cooking necessities. The owners were very helpful and at our request, even brought over a turkey roasting pan for us!!! The bedrooms are large and the beds comfortable. We enjoyed morning walks along the seawall with our coffees, and afternoon glasses of wine sitting atop the second floor balcony. We loved being here, and are looking forward to our next visit to Victoria when we will stay for another long weekend with friends at this fabulous location.

Victoria home rental review

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at the house for two weeks during the 2011 winter. The house was very comfortable and warm during a cold spell that included snow. The location is excellent as it is close to small centers where all daily needs can be purchased. The kitchen and laundry areas are well equipped. The house is big enough for a large family and yet is feels cosy enough for two.
The house is located on a quiet, tree lined street just a block from the ocean where one can walk or miles on rambling paths. We will certainly stay at the house again during future visits to Victoria.
