excellent family home

  • 5 of 5
Our family had a wonderful stay in Victoria for 9 days over the Thanksgiving weekend. The house was perfect for us! We have three children and all of us including our nanny were very comfortable in the house. it was clean and impeccably maintained and fully stocked with everything we needed. Beacon hill park is located across from the house and there were two excellent playgrounds for our children within walking distance. There are beautiful trees lining the park that you see from the house and we loved the area. It is close to the harbor, cook street village and the park. We had most or our meals in the house and the kitchen was fully stocked and the huge dining room was great for our family to all eat together. We have been looking for years for a comfortable home to accommodate our family and we have finally found it! We will be coming back to the house and would very highly recommend it.

Excellent Family House

  • 5 of 5
The house was beautiful and just as described on the site, Great location across the road to Beacon Hill Park, and walking distance to stores, restaurants, coffee shops, etc at Cook Street village.

Very well equipped with everything we needed (and then some).

Check in and other interaction with the manager was seamless.

Overall great experience and I would not hesitate to recommend it.

Just great!

  • 5 of 5
A mere 10 minutes walk from downtown Victoria, this home had everything what we were looking for: a lovely classical interior, sunny balcony, cosy bedrooms, and a nice green neighbourhood. The location is ideal for exploring Victoria and the surrounding area, either on foot, by car, or by one of the bicycles offered at the house (we tested AND recommend the Galloping Goose trail!). Each morning we enjoyed a fresh walk in the magnificent park just across the street (spot the dears, peacocks, and hummingbirds!), and served ourselves toast and a cup of tea in the classy dining room.

Adding the warm and friendly welcome, I guess we have been staying at one of the best places in town!

Another wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5
We have just enjoyed another stay at this gorgeous heritage home. Last year, we stayed in the delightful suite downstairs. This year, we rented the upper level and had the most wonderful time with my parents and Grandma. Words cannot express just how special this home is. It has been wonderfully restored and every detail is perfect. Large windows allow you to take in the most wonderful views from every room including the pink cherry blossoms and Gary Oak meadows in Beacon Hill park just meters away. Or you can enjoy the view from the sunny patio or upstairs balcony. Light streams through the most beautiful stained glass windows and everything down to the light fixtures, doors, fireplace, and staircase make you feel like you have stepped back in time.

You have everything you need in the updated kitchen to cook up a storm. Or you are just steps away from a great pub and many fabulous restaurants on Cook Street. You can walk to some of the most wonderful places in Victoria. Beautiful flowers and ducks swimming in ponds await your discovery in Beacon Hill Park. You will find the sweetest baby goats, sheep, donkeys and peacocks at the Beacon Hill Children's Farm. You can walk down to the ocean and spend the day on the beach soaking in the sun and watching people fly kites. You don't need a car to explore the parliament buildings, museum, fabulous shops and restaurants of downtown Victoria. Don't forget to visit the Art Gallery and Craigdarroch Castle, also within walking distance. At the end of a day of exploring, you get to return to a place that has all the comforts of home and a comfy bed.

We want to thank Nancy for making our second stay so wonderful. Fresh flowers and chocolates were waiting for us when we arrived. We were thrilled to meet the lovely owners of the property last year. They are really the loveliest people you will ever meet and we thank them so much for sharing this treasure of a house. This is truly a gem which I cannot recommend highly enough for your stay in Victoria.

Beautiful conveniently located home!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I and 2 small children and Grandma all had a wonderful vacation together at this beautiful heritage home. It is right across the street from Beacon Hill Park, which is loaded with beautiful pathways, ponds, birds and a great petting zoo. It is also close to Cook Street where we went almost daily to pick up starbucks, fresh baked items and fresh fruit at the market and to wander the many interesting stores. It is also a quick 15 minute walk downtown and the harbor. We spent many hours watching the kids play in the spacious front yard while we sat on the beautiful verandah with a view of the park. We were visited by hummingbirds and herons and even saw a doe and her fawn across the street in the park one morning. I can't say enough about this place! It was spotless when we arrived and there was a bottle of wine and juice boxes waiting for us, along with a beautiful fresh flower arrangement. We will be back for sure!!

All the Comforts of Home

  • 5 of 5
Our family really enjoyed staying at Park Place. We could walk everywhere and it was so nice being so close to the park and Cook Street. It has all the amenities one could ask for, as well as being comfy and cozy. It is always a pleasure having Nancy as the hostess. She is well organized and very helpful.
