It was always a dream of ours to build a custom home on Bear Mountain. We have lived on the mountain for one year now and love all the amenities at our door step and we are so happy with our choice of property and neighborhood. Our custom designed dream home was built in early 2012 and the garden suite was designed from conception to be a vacation home away from home that would appeal to a variety of travelers.

Joff and Ginny Barlow purchased this apartment in 2012

This property is unique in that there is natural forest behind the property and is on a corner lot with above average privacy as we have neighbours on one-side and across the street. We didn`t want that `closed in suburban`feel and we waited for the perfect opportunity in our dream neighbourhood to present itself and it surely did! Where else can one watch deer graze while sipping coffee from our private patio and all the while we are just 15 minutes from downtown Victoria! It really is the best of both worlds and we love the Westcoast lifestyle.

There are so many reasons to chose staying on the Mountain in a private home as you have the full resort available at your doorstep without that Condo feel. Victoria is a haven for the outdoor adventurist or for those that love shopping, eco-tourism, fine dining or sitting down at one of our casual fantastic urban cafes! We are locals ourselves so we know all the great well hidden local hot spots off the beaten path. Our recommendations will be included in your 'Best of Victoria Binder' available for your reading pleasure while you stay!

PERFECT HOME BASE TO VISIT VANCOUVER ISLAND

  • 5 of 5
We rented this condo to have a home base when visiting family in the Highlands. It was perfect. The condo is brand new and stylishly decorated. The owners provide everything you could possibly need and are very friendly and responsive. You are a quick car ride down the mountain to get any provisions in Langford. We highly recommend it.

Thanks for a fantastic month in your suite. We had moved to Victoria from Vancouver and were waiting for our house to be ready. This suite had everything and more for the kids and ourselves. We were so comfortable there, what a beautiful place. The suite is so clean and beautifully decorated!
Thanks again!!!

AN OUTSTANDING RENTAL PROPERTY

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Bear Mountain Garden Suite to attend our son's wedding and were delighted with this clean, modern and fully equipped condo. Directions to the suite were clear and easily followed as were all communications with the owners. On arrival we were greeted with delicious sticky buns, fully outlined information manual(s) and directions to local restaurants, groceries and other shopping. Our family was able to enjoy a wonderful wedding experience, thanks in part to having no accommodation worries, and we highly recommend this rental property.
