Why Is Heathwood Better?
Why are our vacation rentals better than your standard house or condo for rent in Victoria?

Take in the heavenly sights, with panoramic views of the Olympic Mountains of Washington. (See our photos)
Its Monumental: In 1990 The Olympic Park was declared a national monument, that's how amazing it is. And now you can visually experience it right from your own private patio.
While you're out on the patio, watch the skies light up with explosive colors every Saturday evening, compliments of the Butchart Gardens Summer firework show.
Your Patio Seems Like The Center Of The Universe.
When the fireworks end, a spectacular light show continues. Indulge in an evening outdoors with a glass of wine to enjoy, while gazing at the glowing stars that seem to dance in the sky for you.
Imagine waking up from a rejuvenating night's rest, enjoying your morning tea, while beholding the beauty of the valley and the awe-inspiring views of the Bay.

Jacqueline & Ollie
My Husband and I have travelled extensively. When, one day we sailed to Vancouver Island, we were captivated by the beauty of this entire area and knew that we had found a gem. We felt incredibly fortunate that we really stumbled on this stunning Island and knew that this is where we would love make our permanent home.
Jacqueline Knopp Or Ollie Knopp purchased this estate in 2006
The absolute beauty and uniqueness of the valley captivated us. The home with its beautiful gardens and spectacular views.We face South overlooking this beautiful valley, through to the Olympic Mountains of Washington. We can see the Ferries crossing from Brentwood Bay to Mill Bay. We enjoy the proximity to Victoria and the Inner Harbour to the South of us and the picturesque town of Sidney-by-the-sea to the North of us all within minutes away. We are always so happy to return to the Beauty, peace and tranquility of our home. Our property provides an ideal setting for our Equestrian activities, we can enjoy watching our horses grazing peacefully in their pastures..
The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
The absolute beauty and uniqueness of the valley allows us to live in the heart of the countryside, surrounded by farms producing fresh local produce where the honor system is still often used.We are in the perfect location; with easy access to Victoria the capital city of British Columbia, a short 15 to 20 minute drive. Or if we wish to explore this magnificent Island the Pacific Marine Circle Route is the perfect one-day drive. Including visiting West Coast beaches and parks, world famous ancient forests and mammoth trees… with interesting and quaint places to see along the way such as “Point No Point” for tea with a stunning view, French Beach, China Beach, Port Renfrew and the fascinating Botanical Gardens the trailhead of Pacific Rim Park, Cowichan Lake , the list is immense. After a day of sight seeing and discovering new places to return to the peace, beauty and tranquility of Heathwood is a treasure we never take for granted. Victoria and the South Island region is home to many exceptionally talented chefs who turn local products into memorable dining experiences. Taste the amazing foods from the region, fresh produce, Pacific seafood, fine wines and ales at the restaurants in the area or bring the delights you find home to enjoy in your “home away from home” – Heathwood.
We had a wonderful time in this suite that had every detail taken care of. The towels were plentiful, soap everywhere, beautiful dining room completely stocked with whatever we needed and am atmosphere of tranquility. Thank you sp much!
We were fortunate to spend a few nights in this beautiful cottage. When we arrived we were greeted by the owners, Ollie and Jacqueline and their very friendly dogs which we all enjoyed. When we first arrived we new this place was special from the moment we walked through the large iron gate into a beautiful back yard garden of plants flowers and water feature. We could have spent our entire stay just sitting in the garden and relaxing, it was that wonderful. We then entered the cottage and were so pleased with each room as Jacqueline gave us the tour of the place. The kitchen was so nice and more than adequately supplied. The two bedrooms were very nice as well and the beds were very, very comfortable. The living/dining area was also very comfortable and looked liked it just came out of a magazine. We then discovered the back porch, which is where we spent most of our time while at the condo. The view was magnificent. The location we found to be quite an advantage. We were out in the "Country" yet we were only 5 minutes from Butchart Gardens, restaurants and grocery stores. We were also only about 20 minutes from Victoria and Sidney. All in all our group of four adults could not have been more satisfied with our stay at Heathwood and we would all highly recommend this location for anyone visiting the Island.
I cannot think of a thing that would have made our stay at Heathwood better. Jacqui and Ollie have put so much love into their place, the land, and the animals, that we also felt included in the embrace.
Then, let's talk about location. It is a beautiful and restful rural area that is close to Victoria, Butchart Gardens, old growth forest, ferries going to many different places (both Vancouver and the north and west part of the island included), and a fun seaside town.
Foodie? This is the land of wineries, fresh caught fish, roadside stands and a farmer's market. Heathwood itself has a wonderful grill, and a selection of oils, vinegars, spices, and more.
A special mention about the dogs: You can close the gate and shut them out if you want, but you would miss out on some very sweet dogs. Being dog lovers, we really enjoyed their company.
The gardens, as you can see from the pictures, are absolutely beautiful.
We were two couples, and had plenty of space. As I said, perfect for us in every way. Vancouver Island and Heathwood have moved to the top of our list of places we would like to return to.
This was one of the best home we ever had rented! We had a very nice stay at Heathwood and Ollie and Jaqueline are very friendly owner. The garden is very nice. The house is very well equipted and it is very quite around the house and garden.
We were fortunate enough to spend four nights here in July. Everything was perfect. Jaqueline and Ollie were so welcoming and had a chilled bottle of wine waiting for us and the other couple we were traveling with. The suite had large rooms and the kitchen was already well stocked with everything we needed (including spices/cooking oils) to prepare meals. There is a nice patio in front as well as a deck in the back. The gardens on the property are outstanding and we spent most of our time outside. We watched the fireworks from Burtchart Gardens on Saturday night from the suite with a glass of wine in hand! Jaqueline gave us lots of advice for good restaurants (although we cooked our meals because we didn't want to leave at night), hikes in the area and info on a wonderful farmers market where we got fresh salmon and prawns. It was truly a perfect getaway and we hope to go back again!!
Yes, the listing description was accurate as to location.
No the listing photos did not accurately reflected the rental's appearance and amenities.
Yes, the property was clean and well-maintained.
Only one question was asked and it was not answered.
No, we will not recommend this property to a friend or relative.
After our stay we received a terse list of what the owner perceived as damages listing such items as "tar like substance on chesterfield". Clearly we did not spend our time
rubbing "tar like substances" on the chesterfield. We own beach rental property (5 star)
in Florida and were appalled at receiving such a indictment from the owner. You can be
assured we will not return.
Heathwood is unique in its location in the beautiful Mt. Newton Valley. So close to the Brentwood bay ferry, which will take you over to Mill Bay, you can drive to the North end of the Island and enjoy the many spectacular views along the way.
Or simply take in all there is to offer right here, wine tasting
tours, the wonderful local beaches, local artists galore and so much more.
The famous Butchart Gardens is a 5 minute drive.
The Brentwood Inn, and Spa is a 3 minute drive, Well worth
pampering yourself. They also offer an excellent Sushi bar
overlooking the ocean
The town of Sidney-by-the-sea, is10 minutes away, enjoy the many unique stores, and delightful restaurants by the ocean.
The city of Victoria, with its many attractions, is a very easy 15 minute drive.
