Victoria House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom 1500 sq' self-contained suite with all appliances including laundry

Our suite has two bedrooms with a Queen bed and two twin beds. The living room has a double futon that is plush and like new. The kitchen contains a fridge, stove, dishwasher, microwave, blender and coffee maker. There is also a laundry room with a washer and dryer solely for use of the suite. The deck faces the ocean and has chairs and a small BBQ - we provide BBQ tools. There is a nice lawn right outside the suite door which is great if you bring a dog with you or the kids need to stretch their legs in the safety of our yard.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • children welcome
  • limited accessibility
  • non smoking only
  • pets considered

About Helen

Chris and Helen Edley live upstairs with their teenage daughter, a mostly indoor cat and the most amazing dog you will ever meet. They own a graphic design company, which, in addition to designing and producing interpretive signs for parks, also supports the international geocaching community with products and services through 'We hope that all our guests have a wonderful and memorable holiday and enjoy exploring Victoria and the local parks as much as we do'.

Helen purchased this house in 2012

Why Helen chose Victoria

We looked at this home for 2 years while our previous home languished on the MLS. We kept hoping and wishing that one day we could move our family in and eventually our previous home sold and lucky for us, this home was back on the market.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with the acoustically perfect opera hall that the first owner had built in the home. Also the grand foyer is a designer's dream. The home is full of solid BC wood, from the floors, to the windows to the doors. The carving of the BC dogwood on the inside cedar door is a showpiece. We also love the Garry Oak and Arbutus ecosystem that the home is gently tucked into. Our building inspector was absolutely awed by the earthquake resistant foundation that the first owner had insisted on. When there are tremors, we feel absolutely nothing. Also, our 13' thick walls mean that we have lovely deep window ledges in every room.

Peaceful quiet spacious

  • 5 of 5
The space was comfortably appointed throughout and we loved sitting outside on the porch overlooking the water with our coffee and watching the birds. Comfy beds and plenty of bedding.
Definitely highly recommended!
15 min from downtown Victoria but very quiet.
Grocery and restaurants within 5 min.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your complimentary review of our suite.
We've been entertained by Anna's Hummingbirds performing creative dips and dives over the past week or so. Such fun!

This place was very nice, spacious and clean. Chris and Helen were very friendly. They also have a lovely dog that our pup got along with very well. Good price for a dog-friendly suite!

Warm, cozy and spacious!

  • 5 of 5
From the warm welcome to the clean and spacious living space, I could not have asked for a nicer temporary home when transitioning to Victoria last fall. Chris and Helen are good people, and their suite is well equipped, comfortable and private. Enjoyed the view, and the enclave of ocean side homes. I will definitely recommend this suite to anyone wanting to get to know Victoria.

Our home is located in View Royal which is central to most Victoria and Southern Vancouver Island attractions and on regular bus routes. There is a biking/walking trail to downtown nearby. For holiday planning I recommend visiting the Tourism Victoria website to find events and activities that suit your lifestyle.
