Guests find a peaceful sense of welcome in this unusual, non-smoking two bedroom self-catering suite.

Two steps up and enter into the oak floored entrance area. Original art provides interest, and the mid-century character of the living room offers a skylight, east and south facing windows overlooking neighbourhood gardens. Enjoy eclectic reading selections or games, or the unobtrusive flat screen TV: basic cable is provided.

The main level Double Bedroom is an 'easy access' space. Down the hall, there are just five steps to the Queen Bedroom. There is ample storage in each room and the Queen Bedroom features radiant under tile floor heating. Oak floors

This suite includes an office area with free WiFi for keeping in touch with home. Other amenities include a European style front loading washer and dryer, dishwasher and the usual kitchen appliances.

Entertain up to 6 guests in the dining loft, overlooking your own outdoor space, a granite walled patio. The loft overlooks our neighbouring gardens--we love to show them off, so ask for a tour!

As your hosts, we provide all necessary linens and, as self-catering travelers ourselves, we know that a few staples in the kitchen is important. You'll find our own bouquet garni spice mixture, olive oil, sugar, salt & pepper, and some teas and coffee to get you started. For overseas guests--we are happy to make power adapters available. Our information booklet includes directions for local grocery shopping.

Partners John & Rob provide quality accommodation, long and short term, through Garden Oaks Fine Accommodation in beautiful Victoria, BC. As world travelers who have lived overseas for many years, Victoria is now home once again. 'We've really enjoyed searching for mid-century pieces to play up the great vibe in this 2 bedroom house.

After a career in clinical care and health system management, Rob remains active in health care. John is diversifying his interests to encompass more design work. They both enjoy gardening, experimenting with cuisines of the world and getting lost on foot in interesting locales.

Feel free to ask for insights into the local area--and a tour of their 'hidden' gardens.

John or Rob purchased this house in 2013

This place feels like home. We've included eclectic reading, a few games, original art from local artist Bill Buckit, our own J. James O'Brien and Hong Kong-Canadian artist Ron Legault. There's an office area with free WiFi, a great granite-walled patio and the location is central to everything Victoria offers in a quiet, residential area known as Oaklands.

You are assured of your privacy, with congenial hosts close at hand should you need ideas on things to do and places to see. The suite is entirely self-catering, but light housekeeping may be arranged at a nominal cost.

Good separation of the bedrooms, a dining loft and a comfortable configuration makes this space seem larger than it's 1221 sq ft. Enjoy oak hardwood floors (radiant tile heating in the Queen bedroom) and the feeling of laid back life amid Victoria's famous Gary Oaks.

Owner's Response: We've discovered that sharing short-stay space is a lot like expanding friendships - very glad to include M & P in that mix and to see such great use made of the dining loft and entertainment space at Mid-century Oaks. Welcome back from New Zealand!
