The casually elegant furnishings and the open floorplan make it an ideal place for entertaining & relaxing. You'll appreciate the fresh clean non-smoking atmosphere of this well appointed 'home away from home.

A convenient location - many people in James Bay do not own a car. The bus stop for downtown is 2 blocks away; the return from downtown bus stop is 1 block away. You can connect to all locations of Greater Victoria from downtown.

With approximately a 10 minute walk you will be:

at the downtown shops; bus terminal, Victoria Clipper and The Coho ferry

My husband, Jack, and I have lived in most areas of Victoria over the past 25 years and have found that James Bay is the perfect place to live. We love walking on the Dallas Road waterfront, through Beacon Hill Park or into the middle of the city to shop or visit our favourite restaurants. Both James Bay Village and nearby Cook Street Village afford wonderful places to browse, eat or sit and watch the world go by.

We enjoy traveling and meeting new people. When away from home, we have found that we are happiest when we can have a comfortable 'home base'; somewhere we can unwind for extended periods of time and can avoid daily interruptions from housekeeping staff or the need to eat out three times a day. We have recently purchased this property from Josie (mentioned in the reviews) and we are excited about offering the same experience to you.

The Owner purchased this house in 2013

Located in James Bay close to the park and walkways, you can stay here without a vehicle. Amenities are all within a 10 minute walk, grocery, pharmacy, clinics, liquor stores, etc.

Home Away From Home!

  • 5 of 5
We really appreciated the beautifully well-appointed, and updated suite. All rooms provided everything we required for a very comfortable stay. The living/dining level had a wall of large windows which extended an open, relaxing ambiance as we looked out onto a lovely garden and patio, yet, provided privacy. And, walking distance to downtown and other stores/restaurants. We looked forward to returning to the suite every evening - it was like returning to our own home. We will definitely recommend this location to others and return ourselves should the need arise. Thanks Delia!

Great place to stay and enjoy Victoria!

  • 5 of 5
I loved this house. Very quiet neighborhood. Walking distance to anywhere you would want to go in Victoria and very easy bus routes. The house was top quality and had everything . Nothing was missed. Walking into the house after a busy day was like coming home. This was the best holiday rental I have ever had. The owner was very gracious and so helpful. I would highly recommend this property to all my friends. Thanks so much, Delia, for a wonderful stay in Victoria

attention to detail!

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at this location! The attention to detail in this home away from home made it a unique and extremely enjoyable place to stay during our vacation. We did not lack for anything! The place itself is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. We have stayed in many vacation spots and this home had the nicest kitchen of any we've been at. Most places use dishes, pots and pans, etc that are sub par which I assume is because of the wear and tear. This homes kitchen was stocked with nice stuff and everything you might need. I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay, from the back yard garden to the bedrooms, we were completely happy with everything! Thank you Delia, we would love to come back some time!

Excellent Place and Location

  • 5 of 5
After having stayed at numerous vacation house rentals over the years, this is by far one of my favorites places to stay. The inside of the duplex looks brand new with newly accented furnishings, large LCD TV (cable), appliances, fireplace, and decent free high bandwidth wi-fi speed. The steam bath in the master bathroom is a nice touch after a long day of activities with the kids. There is a small organic food store one block away where we bought some local products. It's a very quaint farmer's co-op place. One block across the house is a popular grill eatery where the locals eat. The fisherman's wharf and Empress hotel are within 15 minutes of leisurely walks.

The owner, Josie, is always available for questions, which we found to be extremely important prior to our arrival and during our stay. She's done an amazing job with putting the rental unit together. Kudos to her!

Location and luxury

  • 5 of 5
The house is new, modern, clean and has all the luxuries and conveniences of home and more. Lots of room with 2 bedrooms and 3 restrooms and a full amazing kitchen with a walkout patio and bbq.

The location is prime. Walk to downtown to harbour, walk to Beacon Hill park, and walk to the ocean for scenic views. The neighbourhood is clean with character and beautiful gardens. There's a grocery store, liquor store, and any other retail for necessities within walking distance.

We will definitely stay again!
