About John or Rob
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
Why John or Rob chose Victoria
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.
What makes this house unique
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.
