Victoria House Rental Photos and Description
Are you interested in staying in a great suite that offers you easy access to everything that Victoria has to offer? Then Suite Myrtle, located on the first floor of a 1913 heritage home in the lovely Oaklands area, is for you!
It is conveniently and ideally located close to downtown Victoria (only 6 minutes driving), which includes famous tourist sites, such as the Inner Harbour, Beacon Hill Park, Royal British Columbia Museum, the Parliament Buildings, Canada’s Oldest Chinatown, and Fisherman’s Wharf. Only a 10 minute bike ride away or a 4 minute drive is Willows Beach, Craigdarroch Castle, Fernwood Village, University of Victoria, Camosun College, Mount Tolmie, and Mount Doug. Just around the corner is the Cedar Hill Public Golf Course, shopping, and walking trails. The beautiful Swan Lake is only a 7 minute drive and has a nature information area and stunning walk around the lake. Butchart Gardens, Butterfly Gardens, Thetis Lake, and the many wineries close to Victoria are easily accessible. Tennis courts, grocery store (Thrifty's right around the corner), drug store, parks, and restaurants are within one block of the suite. Furthermore, cycling trails, kayaking, entertainment, excellent restaurants, and more can be accessed in every corner of the city. Oaklands is a lovely neighbourhood to take an evening stroll or take the children to several nearby parks to work off some energy. The location of the suite offers easy access to the highway for airport and ferries.
The clean, bright, non-smoking suite is suitable for families or adults and includes ample on-street parking. The suite provides a private entrance, two lovely bedrooms, living room, dining area, open plan kitchen, bathroom, and wireless Internet. Both bedrooms are beautifully decorated with comfortable double beds, comforters, many pillows, and large closets. The living room is equipped with cable television and a futon sofa that can accommodate two more guests to sleep, if required. Additionally, there are plenty of games, movies, and interesting books to keep busy minds occupied. The kitchen is fully stocked with all of the necessary amenities. Keep in mind, since this is the first floor of the house, the ceiling is a bit lower but fine if you are not too much over 6'.
Upon arrival, you will find fresh bottled water, fruit, and chocolate waiting to greet you. Our family loves living in Victoria! To share our passion for our wonderful city, we have compiled a guide to help you determine how to spend your time while here. Whether interested in attending one of the Victoria Harbourcats Baseball games, take in a hockey game, skating, or concert at the Save-on Food Memorial Centre, ride the horse and carriage downtown, or go out for breakfast or dinner (Victoria has many excellent choices), Suite Myrtle’s guide will assist you with the many options Victoria has to offer.

Doug purchased this house in 2006
Why Doug chose Victoria
We fell in love with this 1913 Heritage home and its unique features. Also, it is conveniently located in the city. It is close to downtown (where I work at a local art gallery), to the university (where my wife works), to public transportation (which is convenient for our daughter), and we can be anywhere in the city within a few minutes.
What makes this house unique
The house is perfectly located within Victoria. It is close to beaches, the university and Camosun College, bike trails, downtown with all of the sites, plus to highways that easily connect to Butchart Gardens and other attractions. This is another reason why we fell in love with this house. Additionally, it is one block away from Hillside Mall that carries all of the conveniences you will require for your stay, such as an excellent grocery store, drug store, camera shop, and of course many clothing and personal item stores. Because the house is situated close to these amenities, if you are relying on public transportation, there are several options, from buses to taxis, to make getting around very easy.
