CHARMING HOUSE DOWNTOWN VICTORIA

Victoria House Rental Photos and Description

Great house for family reunions or a home-away-from-home!

This well-appointed home is walking distance to downtown Victoria, the Inner Harbour, Craigdarroch Castle, Victoria Art Gallery and a lovely stroll to Cook Street Village and the beach. We are central and convenient to all downtown amenities.

We offer an all-inclusive price (no hidden fees or taxes) of $300/night for 6 guests (two floors) and $500/night for 10 guests (three floors). Extra guests are $25 per night charge and we are equipped to sleep up to 13 people in beds and 16 people maximum (not including children under 5 years old). We don't charge for children under 5 years old, we don't' charge extra for cleaning and our prices include tax. We feature being downtown Victoria's most reasonable vacation rental for large groups.

The house boasts 2600 sq ft of comfortable west coast living over three storeys and five bedrooms. The main floor has the two bedrooms (queen beds) and a sunny 'open concept' living space with a kitchen, dining room and living room with electric fireplace and huge skylight. This floor is ideal for visiting, relaxing, watching TV and cooking big meals. Our kitchen is stocked with everything one would need and the dining room table has many leaves to extend its length.

The top floor is the master bedroom with a king size bed and a two piece bathroom (no shower/bath). It has two skylights and a calm and peaceful feel to it. It is quite private from the rest of the house.

The lower floor is a one bedroom self-contained suite. It has a full kitchen and bathroom, TV and laundry. There is a queen size bed in the main room and a double bed in the small bedroom. This lower suite has 6’4” ceilings and laminate flooring.

There is a wonderful sunroom that catches afternoon and evening sun. There are some sitting chairs and a bed for napping and even sleeping.

The backyard is private and has a croquet set and some lawn chairs.

We accept most pets but they must stay outside or in the sunroom.

Wireless internet, washer/dryer, six car driveway, very clean, ideal location for those wanting to be close to all the amenities. Private backyard for sunny afternoons and relaxing. Bus stop across the street.

Not only a great vacation spot but a comfortable temporary home for those on the road. Perfect for longer stays and entertaining.

In case additional sleeping space is needed, we have 4” sleeping mats and a double pull-out sofa in the living room.

Please email me the dates requested and the number of guests and I will reply promptly with a quote, plus specifics.

In the off-season, we rent the main floor separately for $200/night.

I manage two vacation rental properties while studying at university. My parents own the house and they live up island with my sister and her family. I live in the basement suite of the house so that I can make sure it's always in top shape and well-cared for. I am in my thirties and have lived in Taiwan for eight years, Thailand for one year and here in beautiful Victoria for over fifteen years. I love this city and love recommending great day trips and more.

Megan Clark purchased this house in 2006

We decided to buy this house because of its convenient downtown location and absolute charm of the house. Once you get here, you will know what I mean...

This house, and I know from personal experience, is ideal for family gatherings. The open-concept kitchen and living areas make it fun to cook meals while still enjoying everyone's company. The sun room makes for a great location to either read the morning paper in the rocking chair, have an afternoon nap on the day bed or let the kids play in a safe yet 'away' room. This main floor is great for visiting yet the bedroom have very heavy doors that give privacy and block the noise.

The master bedroom upstairs is also very private and a great get-away for the parents! It has an en-suite bathroom and great skylights that accent the attic-style ceiling. Great natural light and a super comfy king-size bed.

The house is older but very charming, it was in a great location for walking to downtown or over the Lueitenant Governors BCHouse and Craigdorroch Castle, it was lovely to get-away with my family to enjoy some time together.

This turned out to be more than we could have asked for. The place was warm and spacious with a full kitchen for all of our cooking needs. Beds were soft and clean. Internet was on point as well as washer/dryer amenities. Our host, Megan was a charm and showed us around town. We got a nice history on the surfing community and had oysters every day. Be sure ask about the pancake special! We will definitely use this home again, THANK YOU MEGAN!

Our home away from home

My family and I were privileged to stay in this residence for a week, which included our son's wedding. The house, with its open style, was perfect for our needs. The accommodations couldn't have been better, and our hostess took wonderful care of us. It is my hope that the house, which was located near all the shops that we needed, will be available to us the next time we visit Victoria.

I highly recommend the house and its hostess!

We were a large family group (6 adults and 4 young children) and found the house very comfortable and well located. We were able to walk downtown and to many interesting sites including the Victoria Art Gallery and Craigdarroch Castle, which are both right around the corner. The kitchen was well equipped and our hostess was very accommodating and helpful. Great to have laundry facilities. Also a very attractive space. Thanks for a great stay!

We are a five minute walk away from the Victoria Art Gallery, Craigdarroch Castle and the Lieutenant Governors Mansion. At the LGM there are beautiful gardens and a garry oak grove to walk through boasting beautiful views of the ocean and Fairfield. We are also a ten minute walk into downtown!

We are also right beside a middle school. This school has the largest field in all of Victoria - great for dog walking and playing with kids The playground has a chess set and a huge play station for children.
