Victoria Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Studio, sleeps 2

'A Little Slice Of Heaven' 'My husband and I have been to Victoria on numerous occasions. We both agreed that this was our best trip ever! This lovely cottage is truly a 'little slice of heaven.' The setting was simply gorgeous and extremely tranquil. We loved sitting on the sun deck, listening to the waterfall and enjoying a glass of wine, especially after a long day of bike riding on one of the many glorious trails that Victoria has to offer. The cottage was adorable and so comfortable. Thank you Chris and Annie for providing such a special 'home away from home.' We absolutely will be back!!'

Karin and Patrick

Relax in the incredible setting of an adorable cottage, set against a mini resort feel. Complete with all of the amenities you could need on your vacation. Walk past the outdoor lounge (we call it the VIP room, as it was recently used for cast and crew of a theatrical motion picture!)

Your own private door opens to the most cozy and inviting Cottage you have ever seen. Queen bedroom set with a very comfortable pillow top mattress. Full kitchen includes some light snacks. Full bathroom with a tub. Washer and dryer in the unit (Always comes in handy)

Kitchen looks on to the pond with waterfall and upper deck. Perfect for lounging in the sun or having a quite candle lit evening.

Use the two bikes that we have available for guest and explore Victoria, ride to Thetis Lake (45min) on the famous Galloping Goose Trail, or ride downtown (5 mins) on a romantic, car-free date night!

We have had an amazing amount of repeat guests all with very positive feedback. We look forward to having you stay!

About Annie

We have a lot of fun! Annie is a singer songwriter. (We always leave a CD for guests-Making one fan at a time!) Chris is a local small business owner. We had our wedding on our property, it was an amazing day with 104 guests! We have had an amazing time transforming our garden into the tranquille/resort feel we have today.

Annie purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Annie chose Victoria

We love to travel. We strive to offer the kind of experience that we would like to have when renting in a new place! Casual, comfortable, clean and friendly.

What makes this cottage unique

A private paradise! Incredibly quiet thanks to the way this property is situated. Very close to everything but still so secluded when you are home.

Quiet, Comfortable, Private

  • 5 of 5
Came to Victoria for a conference and stayed in the Cottage for 4 nights. The bed is SO comfortable I admit it was a challenge to get up for the meetings every morning!
Chris and Annie are so friendly and casual, I felt very comfortable there. There is a nice divider between the main house and the cottage so it's still nice and private.
They left some snacks which was lovely and the cottage is very clean with nice linens and towels. Would love to stay in the summer and see the garden.
Thanks for a great place to decompress every evening!

Perfect Fit!

  • 5 of 5
A perfect place to stay while we explored Victoria. From the first email we sent Annie was so helpful and answered all our questions within minutes regarding the little details of our trip, arrival etc. She provided us with a list of must see and do activities while we were in town which was appreciated as we like to live like locals when we visit a new city.
The cottage was very well set up with everything we needed. Eggs, cream, coffee and local goodies were provided, the bed was so comfortable and having a full tub and laundry was such a bonus.
We will definitely be back and recommend to others.
Thank you!

A nice and quiet place

  • 4 of 5
It's a small but cozy place (like a studio) to stay. We spent 3 nights here. Unfortunately it was raining all the time so we didn't have a chance to enjoy the VIP room BBQ....:( If you want to go to Victoria downtown, where the major attractions are located, you can take bus (around 10~15 minutes). The garden was really cute and beautiful! Again, too bad we didn't enjoy it because of the rain. If you want to cook, it's probably not that convenient because the kitchen is not that big and many cooking pots are damaged. But Annie and Chris are very thoughtful. They provide pasta, oil, spices, desserts, beer......etc. Anyway, if you want to enjoy a piece of quiet, it's a nice place to stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! We enjoyed having you stay at the cottage!
We have replaced all the cookware and checked for any holes in the arsenal. If you would like to stay again you can cook up a storm if you like! We appreciate your input and are always looking to improve our guests experience.
We hope to see you again :)

Just What We Needed!

  • 5 of 5
We just stayed at the Best Cottage Ever for our anniversary. It is in a great location and is central between downtown, Cook St Village and the Beach in Oak Bay. We spent the days out on the bikes that are provided and came home in the evenings to BBQ for dinner (except one night we went to Stage wine bar...so good! And in walking distance!)
Annie and Chris are very nice and just did their own thing and let us do ours but were relaxed and friendly when we did cross paths.
That was a much needed break.
Thank you!

Good for a few nights

  • 3 of 5
My husband and I stayed in the cottage for 4 nights with our dog. The hosts are very nice and welcoming, and they even volunteered to babysit our pup for an evening while we went out for supper. The cottage is quite a bit smaller than it appears in the pictures and we found it difficult to cook anything in the kitchen due to lack of cookware/utensils. The yard is very nice but there isn't much separation from the cottage to the owner's living space, although we did not find this to be a problem. Street parking was sometimes hard to come by. Very nice linens on the bed and Annie had left some goodies in the fridge for us which was a nice touch. Overall if you need a cheap place to stay for a few nights and are not worried about lack of privacy, the cottage will do the trick.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We have placed a bamboo fence between the cottage and the house for better privacy. This had been down during your stay while we did some work in the garden etc.
All the cookware is in the kitchen and at guests' disposal including sharp knives, pots and pans, cutlery and an oven microwave and BBQ.

Since moving to the Portland, OR from NC a few years ago, I have been able to visit my friend in Victoria more often. This cottage is private, quiet, and well stocked with amenities---Chris and Annie have thought of everything! It is so nice to come back "home" after a day of visiting with friends and touring the city---very comfortable furniture and nice appointments.

The cottage has great sunlight coming through the windows, and even a sky light that can be opened for air flow---very nice feature. I am a repeat visitor and look forward to coming back---hopefully this year!
