Guestbook comments from the owner

Your place provided us the perfect vacation home for our family. We loved watching the sunsets and enjoying morning sun from the deck overlooking the ocean -- bird calls, the wind in the arbutus tree, and ocean walks. What more could we ask for ? It taught us to listen to the sounds of the earth

Thank you for opening your beautiful, comfortable home to us We would love to come again in the future.

Perfect setting!

We rested. We played. We explored. And we rested . . . . Coming to this home restored our sense if calm. All of the accommodations were clean, in great condition, even extravagantly comfortable. What a precious place and great experience.

Discovering a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5
Your home is beautiful and we loved every minute of our stay there. Our only problem was that we had over-scheduled ourselves with friends in Victoria and Sydney when we really just wanted to sit on the deck and enjoy the view and wonderful quiet.



One of the delightful surprises of your home was the "magic" mirror in the master bedroom. I am 5'1" and about 112 lbs but I discovered quickly that I was transformed into a sylph-like 5'10", still 112 lbs as I walked from the great room down the hall towards the bedroom. I found reasons to walk that hallway over and over. Every home should have such a mirror!!



We also loved visiting with your sweet and beautiful cats on the deck and in the garden. We weren't sure how they would interact with our dogs so didn't invite them into the house.



We hope to return some day.

Tranquil Garden by the water.

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I found a new area outside Victoria that was delightful. Wendy's home is cozy and stylish, her garden is lovely and her cat Potsi adorable. The view is incredible and this quiet getaway is a perfect base for exploring Salt Spring Island, nearby Sydney's bookstores or all the charms of Victoria. Wendy happened to be staying in the basement during our trip and is a charming host. We immediately booked this house again for the summer before we left in spring. Looking forward to returning to this lovely house on the water.

Perfect for a summer vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We were fortunate to spend a week at this home last summer and couldn't have been happier. The long driveway down to the house immediately delivers a feeling of privacy, and the gardens around the house are very welcoming. The home is very nicely updated- modern, warm and spacious, yet still feels cozy. The kitchen was well stocked with the basics and more. We cooked most our dinners and there was nothing missing. There is a huge table, that allowed our family of 4 to eat at one end, and leave the board game out in mid-competition mode at the other! The linens and bedding were great- special thanks to Wendy for her detail in that regard. Couldn't ask for a more comfortable bed, which is so appreciated when you're on vacation. Some mornings I just stayed in it and read a book! The fact that it was so quiet also contributed to our great sleeps!

The view is gorgeous from all the large windows, and we enjoyed our time relaxing on the deck. The beach is a quick little jaunt thru the back yard. We took the zero-gravity chairs down there with our beer & books, and life was good. You can walk a long ways down the beach in both directions if you want to explore.

There is a grocery store close by and town is just a few minutes away if you want to shop or go out for dinner. We drove to a nearby beach called 'Cole's Bay' and did a day trip over to Fisgard Lighthouse Historical Park, which I highly recommend. Gorgeous and well maintained site!

Finally, Wendy was great to deal with before, during and after (I left my phone charger behind and she got it back to me very quickly!).1 We also loved visiting her cat Sylvestor and his buddies (when they were in the mood!). Thank you for sharing your home Wendy! We don't often go to the same place twice (it's such a big world to see!), but we might make an exception as we'd love to come back some day.

Rejuvenating getaway

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our recent stay at this beautiful home and wished we could have stayed longer.
The waterfront location is stunning, with beautiful views across to Saltspring Island, and amazing sunsets. We enjoyed watching boats of all shapes and sizes pass by, and I think I heard a whale or something large do a bellyflop one evening just offshore! (I would advise bringing binoculars).
The home is very comfortable; elegant and rustic, as promised. The "rustic" was not, in this case, a bad thing; the home had character and warmth and felt like it had a history. At the same time it had all the conveniences you could want, and the beds were extremely comfortable.
The beach is indeed walk on, a mix of shale and sand and shells. At high tide it would be quite nice to swim in, although you would need a thick skin as in all ocean swimming. I did go in up to my knees one evening, and it was not as cold as I would have thought.
The location is very convenient to the ferries, the airport and all the things to see and do on the Saanich peninsula, including the charming town of Sidney. It is less than half an hour to Victoria as well.
It was a bonus that we could bring our dog, and a double bonus that the property is completely fenced (unobtrusively) so we did not have to worry about him escaping anywhere. He enjoyed his walks on the beach as well!
The deck, as others have said, was our favourite spot, for morning coffees, evening glasses of wine, or just lazing watching the boats go by. There are a couple of very comfortable lounging chairs as well as the patio table and chairs.
I would not hesitate to recommend this property, and I hope to visit again in the future. Thanks Wendy!
