We are both music educators that live close by on the mainland and love to spend as much time as we can at our place on the island.

The Owner purchased this house in 2002

This property has been in our family since 1967. In 2001 we decided to replace the original 400 square foot cottage and build a new family home. Since then we have been renting it as a vacation home that we also enjoy ourselves. One of the things we've found while renting our home is that people who visit our property want to return and repeat the experience. We are excited to be able to offer our place once again to families wanting a unique vacation home close to nature, but also close to Victoria, Sidney, and Brentwood Bay.

Our place is located in a small, quiet community that lets you feel like you are away from it all, yet you are a short 30 minutes away from Downtown Victoria. You are also 15 minutes away from the villages of Brentwood Bay and Saanichton. There are wonderful wineries,restaurants and gardens nearby, plus the added bonus of being on Saanich Peninsula where there are fresh and organic food stands and stalls throughout the area during the growing season. This place that our family has always called 'the Cottage' has been a wonderful summer and winter location to share family gatherings. While the adults are visiting on the main level or outside patio, the kids can be up in the loft playing video games , air hockey etc. Visitors also enjoy the water (some wetsuits provided) swimming, snorkelling and beachcombing. Every evening we have 'Sunset Ceremony' where we toast the sun as it sets behind the Malahat hills across the inlet. The cottage is a great place to retreat and reconnect with nature where you will likely see eagles, herons, seals, otters, and deer. A walk down the road will lead you to a regional park with more hiking trails, waterfalls and beaches to enjoy.

Great waterfront holiday location

We had a wonderful time staying at this property - it was a perfect fit for two families with young children looking for a quiet weekend away. The photos give a very accurate impression of the house, which is spacious, well stocked, comfortable and very clean. The owners were helpful with recommendations for local restaurants and grocery stores, and also gave scenic directions! The location is stunning; right on the water, with well maintained outdoor areas. It was about a half hour's drive to Victoria, but only 15 minutes to Butchart Gardens, and 10 minutes to the Butterfly House, which our kids thoroughly enjoyed (and was great on a rainy afternoon). We would love to return in summer!

Wonderful house and location

4 adults very much enjoyed this property for 5 days. It is wonderfully comfortable, exceptionally clean, beautiful location, very handy to all the sights (within 1/2 hour of Victoria and 15 minutes to Butchart Gardens), and the best equiped kitchen of any rental we have ever used. It is also very quiet, both the neighborhood and room to room inside the house. The Red Barn market within 10 minutes has all the food supplies you could want.

What a vacation should be

The pictures don't lie. Seals, otters, deer and eagles all arrive on cue. The drive to the house foreshadows the secluded restful vacation that is about to begin. Lots of space to enjoy family and friends. Awesome views! Highland Pacific is a fun golf course not too far away. Dress warm if you go to see the Orcas. When the eagles land on the tree top, get to the loft for great pics. Don't bring a second car down the driveway until the first car has turned around. Thanks for sharing your wonderful place, Dennis and family.

The Wow! factor

The driveway Wow! The house Wow! The scenery Wow! We enjoyed ourselves here, we wish we had more time just to stay and relax more. The fireworks at Butchart Gardens Wow! Lots of wild life walking around was great for the girls - a deer came right down to see us while sitting outside. Our last day a family of seals came close and were putting on a show. We will be back and will be bringing more family and friends with us... Thanks for letting us stay in your beautiful home.

Wow! Thank you for letting us stay in a perfect hideaway! We saw deer, starfish, crabs, and even the raccoon! My girls absolutely fell in love with Vancouver Island and this house. It was hard to leave the windows as we didn't want to miss anything going by. We'd love to come back.
