Victoria House Rental Photos and Description

Spacious 3 Bedroom Home with Huge Deck & Yard - Perfect for Families

Maplewood Cottage is a bright home in a quaint family neighborhood, close to all level of amenities. Its convenient location has easy access downtown and to Victoria's tourist sights, and is close to the University of Victoria and Camosun College.

This vacation home offers a fully equipped 3 bedroom, 1 bathroom suite, suitable for up to 6 people.

You will have all the comforts of home - a big back yard, deck, and grill, free street parking, wireless internet and cable, in-suite laundry, and a modern kitchen.

The home is comprised of 2 queen bedrooms and 1 double bedroom. All bedrooms are equipped with desks, in the event that you are here to study or work.

This non-smoking home is very close to walking and jogging trails, a Childrens' Park, and a 24 hour grocery/pharmacy store. Close proximity to great shopping - Uptown Center & Mayfair Mall. 15 minute bike ride, or a 7 minutes' drive to the University of Victoria.

For those using transit, there is one quick bus to and from downtown, with a bus stop 2 blocks away (Maplewood at Derby).

A great hotel alternative for families, extended family vacations, and sharers.

Everything you need is included in your rental -- free heat, electricity, wireless internet, cable t.v., parking, linens, towels, kitchen equipment and basic supplies (such as coffee and tea, sugar, dish soap and laundry soap).

We personally check in our quests, and live close by if you have any questions, or need assistance. We aim to make you feel like our vacation home is your home away from home and trust you will have a pleasant stay.

Maplewood Cottage is our second VRBO property- the first (with 5 star ratings) is University Heights Vacation Home (www.vrbo.com/449911). We are sure that this property will be just as popular, and the service just as great.

We live close by and enjoy taking care of our guests and checking them in personally.

Jayne Embree purchased this house in 2009

We fell in love with this home in the Garry Oak Grove, and love the huge back garden. It is quiet and yet so convenient to get anywhere in Victoria!

It's easy to get anywhere in Greater Victoria from our location, has everything included, in a peaceful setting.

Perfect for our family

  • 5 of 5
We had a great stay. My kids loved the board games, big deck and yard. We liked the quiet neighbourhood and even saw a deer in the backyard. The cottage had everything we needed and it was a quick drive it the downtown.

Nice holiday home

  • 4 of 5
We had a very nice stay at Maplewood Cottage and enjoyed the sunny garden and sun deck. The flat is very spacious and well equipped. The area is beautiful with nice houses and gardens and especially the golf course nearby is worth a visit. Furthermore, shopping is not far away. If ever we come to Canada again, we would rent this flat again.

A wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5
We are a family of 4 and this was our first time on Vancouver Island. We arrived very early and the proprietor kindly allowed us to check in early. There was a nice little basket with some welcome goodies!
The apartment was very fresh and clean with lots of nice little finishing touches. No expense was spared with many of the soft furnishings and very little was missing from what is required in a home. We had a fabulous 10 days, the location was ideal, away from the hub of the city but just 10 or 20 minutes drive to beaches, parks and many of Victoria's attractions.
The garden was natural but well kept with garden furniture and a gas BBQ. Our young children (aged 4 and 3) spent many hours enjoying ball games and the like.
The owners have thought of everything here, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property for a holiday.

Owner's Response: Thank you Rachel, we do aim for good customer service and I'm glad your family enjoyed your stay. This year we have moved Maplewood Cottage upstairs, to our 3 bedroom unit (new pictures here), and we have kept the 2 bedroom unit you stayed in at the same great rates-- but that one is now called Salsbury Gardens. We hope to see you back at one of these great units in 2014!

Family of Four

  • 4 of 5
This rental offered better value than a basic hotel room. The kitchen was well stocked, towels were provided and the house had plenty of space for a family of four. The owners were friendly and responsive to our e-mails. From the listing we were under the impression that the rental was not a lower level rental.

Owner's Response: Thank for the great review. We are very glad you enjoyed your stay. It was very nice meeting you and your family. We hope the kids enjoyed the extra toys we put out for them and the loverly local beaches. We hope to see you again in the future, either at this suite or our other 3 bedroom home.

Perfect Victoria Holiday Rental

  • 5 of 5
This bright, cozy vacation home gives you everything you need for a stay in Victoria. Our week-long visit was easy, as the owners thoughtfully provided all the little things one needs for a getaway, from beach towels to novels to tea. There's ample storage for luggage and clothes in the bedroom closets, and the room furnishings are pleasant and comfortable. The kitchen is well supplied, with clean, new dishes, and the suite is fresh, with nice windows. The laundry is convenient and the yard is huge! We stayed with our two young children and were very happy to have the green space for them to run around. There's so much to do in Victoria, and this is a great little launching pad where you can enjoy being at home as well as out exploring.
