Louise England purchased this house in 2004
Having travelled the world and most of Canada, I feel that Victoria is the best city in Canada in which to live, B.C. the most stunningly beautiful province with nearby Vancouver consistently highly rated city in world polls. I have lived in Beverly Hills, Orange county, etc and nothing compares to the relaxed pace understated affluence and beauty of Victoria and environs.
The Canadian political and economic climate are stable, the city is safe and geared for tourism.
It is walking distance to a fabulous park and disney- like downtown
The garden is a fabulous to bike inside the glass enclosed deck on the second floor
My husband and I spend three months of the summer each year in Victoria. We have rented houses in various parts of the city. This summer we decided to try James Bay and stayed at this unique and special residence. The location was amazing; so close to the downtown, Beacon Hill Park and the ocean. We hardly used our car and loved walking the beautiful neighborhoods seeing the horse drawn carriages giving tourists a history of the area through the architecture. The house is only two blocks from a thriving commercial village including a large grocery market, pharmacy, restaurants and many coffee houses. Just a few blocks in the other direction on Niagara is a fabulous local organic market.
The house is very special as the owner is an artist and has created a colourful and comfortable living space. The kitchen is state of the art with a six burner gas cooktop and the best pans, cutlery and knives we have ever experienced in a rental. The counters are all beautiful granite. I just loved cooking in that kitchen. The master suite upstairs has a huge walk in shower and a king size bed with quality linens and lots of closet space, including a walk in one. With a reading room off of it and a covered porch for morning exercises, it is just perfect.
We were able to enjoy the garden with our large family who were visiting because of the ample seating for conversation and dining.
We had a wonderful time in this lovely home! The location was perfect and allowed us all a lot of flexibility to go and venture out at our own pace. My tall husband particularly loved the giant shower, my mom loved the beautiful flowers in the garden and the lovely smell they created throughout the property, and my dad especially enjoyed walking down to get the paper and then enjoying it with his morning coffee in the courtyard. The layout of the home, the abundant natural light, the first-class furnishings, and the fascinating art work and souvenirs from the owner's world travels made for a very comfortable and memorable stay in Victoria. We absolutely recommend it!
We loved this house and its magic garden. It's a one-off property and a one-off opportunity in the Victoria rental market. No other house came even close in our 6 week search last year for a quality, temporary home. The standard is amazingly high throughout and reflects Louise's (owner) kindness and generosity. No bare minimum here. Everything was quality and everything worked. We would say this was a home as the owner would have it for herself. The kitchen is impressively and generously equipped and we loved all the décor and lighting both inside and out. Creativity is everywhere and the house should be featured in a magazine (I think it has been) but no effort has been spared to ensure it also feels like a real home. It was always warm and comfortable which was great as we stayed there till December! The location is also perfect. It’s quiet but central: a short and easy walk to all the amenities of James Bay as well as to the theatres, restaurants and bars of downtown Victoria. The lovely Beaconhill Park is just across the road and there are more great restaurants, coffee houses and shops in Cook Street Village, nearby. Try the Pizzeria Primastrada there. My husband and I spent two very happy months here during Fall last year. Should we need a temporary Victoria home again, we would definitely hope to return to this house and yes - we would definitely recommend it to anyone, including close friends and family. Brilliant place - thanks again, Louise.
We loved staying here. Lovely romantic master suite with its own fireplace, amazing bath, fridge and separate sitting area and large balcony. The kitchen was large and great to cook in. Our family loved the backyard with the BBQ, lovely dining area and the secluded reading spot. The eclectic art gives the whole property a bohemian feel. 10 minute walk to downtown, 5 minute to the ocean and beaches, 5 minute to Beacon Hill Park. We used the local buses and the stop was 3 minutes away. We will come back next year. Louise the owner was great. She provided lots of info and couldn't have done more to make us feel welcome.
Very close to Beacon Hill Park, botanical garden, playground and children's petting zoo. Historic neighbourhood in the heart of downtown Victoria, walking distance to beaches, museums, restaurants and shopping district.
