My wife and I come from families that have resided in Victoria for over 100 years. We have lived on langford lake since 2001, and in this area for over 30 years. We also own a local family business.
Roy purchased this house in 2001
Why Roy chose Langford
We purchased this house as our home, and the one next door as a vacation rental in 2001. Our other home is the longest listed vacation rental on VRBO's victoria site (first one on the site #12233). We choose this location because it is at the end of a quiet deadend rd. and is probably one of the best lake front locations in the whole city of victoria. It is close to the city , but private and out of the way. We now have decided to share our home with others looking for an extra special vacation home.
What makes this house unique
Take out the row boat and explore the lake , possibly row down to the little island and try your hand at fishing for trout or bass. My favorite on a hot afternoon is a cool swim in the lake (langford is a very clean and safe lake) and relaxing on the dock afterwards. One of our favorite activities is walking from the house around to the other side of the lake, within a few minutes you walk over a long wooden bridge thru wet land birders paridise, and then follow a winding trail along the lake. This trail is and easy walk for most anyone or you can ride your bike. From here you can connect to the galloping goose trail, and ride your bike into downtown or out to sooke if your feeling really motivated. There are 4 top golf courses within 5-10minutes, world famous Butchard Gardens is only about 25 minutes, away, City Center Park with mini golf , kids play zone and bowling are at the other end of the lake. Also locally there is shopping, restuarants, pubs, movie multi plex, ocean beaches, Goldstream provincial park, whale watching and dont forget some of the best salmon fishing in the world. Or maybe just head 5 minutes into downtown Langford and grab yourself a delicious latte..... its all here waiting for you to enjoy!
Guestbook comments from the owner
We are heading back and had a most enjoyable ferry ride....sunny and clear! Beautiful.
We sure had a delightful time. Did and saw a lot. We enjoyed meeting you and chatting . Wish the fish had wanted out bait....didn't do too well out on the lake fishing. But the boats and swimming was great!
Again, thanks a bunch!! Love love loved every minute!!
