ESCAPE TO HEATHWOOD, PRIVATE ESTATE, LET THE CHARM AND BEAUTY SURROUND YOU

Victoria Estate Rental Photos and Description

THINKING OF VISITING VANCOUVER ISLAND B.C?

Meet Jacqueline and Ollie: Hello My Name Is Jacqueline , my Husband Ollie and I are the proud owners of two vacation rentals on Vancouver Island British Columbia.

Committed To Your Experience: We have tried to anticipate your every need, to help make your trip to Canada one you'll want to relive.

Want To Experience A Truly Unique Property?

Look no further! Nestled in the heart of the bucolic Mt. Newton Valley, you'll find our private and peaceful BC vacation rentals.

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

Views Like No Other! 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.

Want An Amazing Experience?

Enveloped In Charm: From the moment you open the gate into your private Courtyard and enter the courtyard suite we know you will feel welcomed.

Heavenly Gardens:The luscious landscapes and calming colors of the gardens resemble something like a Garden of Eden, it's that special.

Want A Luxury Vacation Rental In B.C?

2 Bedroom Vacation Rental: Our private Victoria vacation rental has 2 spacious bedrooms with 2 full bathrooms so everyone is comfortable.

Privacy: Totally private from each other, the bedrooms allow two couples to each have their own private space.

Comfortable Living: You'll feel at home! The cozy living room area offers plenty of room and comfort for everyone traveling.

Don't Want To Cook? There are plenty of superb restaurants and dining options available nearby.

What Can I Expect?

Nothing But The Best For Heathwood Guests!

Sleep On A Cloud: No expense was spared when furnishing this one of a kind B.C. rental property. We understand the quality of sleep adds to the overall quality of your vacation, thats why we fitted the home with top of the line bedding.

A Difference In Luxury You Can Feel: Our vacation rental in Victoria is fully loaded with luxuries like premium persian rugs, so even your feet are pampered.

Want A Blissful Sleep? Fine linens add to the tranquility of your stay. You'll love to retreat back to your super comfy bed, topped with high thread count sheets for that extra added comfort. You may want to just stay in and relax, like many of our guests do.

What Are Some Of The Things To Do?

Our Victoria vacation rental is conveniently located in the Mt. Newton valley. There are plenty of local activities just moments away.

Want To Visit Victoria?

Its the best of both worlds!

They so enjoy the delightful cuisine that our local restaurants provide.

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.

A perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5
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!!

Disappointing

  • 2 of 5
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.

Owner's Response: Ollie and I are so sorry that you felt the need to place this rather spiteful review on VRBO. It certainly does not reflect your response to our suite on your arrival, you all showed great pleasure and voiced your delight.
Your very pleasant note in our guest book which you left at the end of your stay with us confirms your feelings for the Courtyard Suite. To quote your words from our guest book, "it was a holiday in Paradise" and "we hope to be back".
We find it difficult to believe that you would have made such favourable comments at the completion of your stay with us if you really did find our suite to be a 2 star facility!
The 15 5 star reviews that we have received from our delightful guest since opening less than 2 years ago, speak for themselves.

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
This home was a wonderful retreat for our family. After a busy day site seeing, we were able to come "home" to a comfortable place. The setting was tranquil and so beautiful! Our hosts Jacqui and Ollie were gracious and welcoming. It is not often that you can find a place like this one.........it is truly a place that will rejuvenate and provide you with rest and all the comforts of home. We can't wait to return! Thanks for a wonderful experience! :)

Charming, private and beautifully furnished, spotless and tranquil haven.

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for an elegant spot on the quite civilized Saanich Peninsula midway between Sidney and Victoria, the Courtyard Suite at Heathwood may just be the ticket. Private and beautifully furnished, spotless and tranquil, this lovely offering's charm is exceeded only by that of the delightful owners. Nearby Butchart Gardens is only an easy few minutes drive and definitely not to be missed. Both Victoria and Sidney are a pleasant 15 minutes or so from this stunning country estate. Treat yourself to an exceptional stay at the Courtyard Suite at Heathwood.

Owner's Response: Dear Carol and Bob,
Thank you so much for your review of your stay with us through the Christmas holiday period.
We are so pleased that you chose to take a trip to Butchart Gardens, just a short 5 minute drive from the Courtyard Suite. Ollie and I also enjoyed the "Magic of Christmas" That Butchart creates with their wonderful displays of Christmas lights, the carousels, the 12 days of Christmas , the carol singers and then into a lovely dinner by the fireside overlooking the Italian Gardens.
We were so fortunate to have such a delightful couple staying with us through this very special time of the year.
We look forward to seeing you in the not too distant future.
Best wishes,
Jacqui & Ollie

Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5
The four of us were quite comfortable in the Courtyard cottage. It has all the amenities provided to make your stay an easy one! The acres of countryside make for quiet and serene vistas. Best of all for me was the cleanliness and privacy. We will return!

Owner's Response: Dear Joan,
Ollie and I were so pleased to hear that yourself, your 2 daughters, son in law and Baby Spencer were all comfortable in the Courtyard Suite at Heathwood. As the 2 bedrooms and bathrooms are on separate floors this does allow for each couple to relax and enjoy some private time.
Thank you for your positive response and we look forward to your return visit.

Best wishes to you and your family,
Jacqueline and Ollie

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The exterior gardens were exquisite! The warmth and friendliness of Jacqui and Ollie was terrific. They made us feel at home in a lovely setting. The three dogs could not been more friendly. The interior was like a setting out of Better Homes and Gardens.
