About Jayne Embree

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

Why Jayne Embree chose Victoria

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!

What makes this house unique

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

Beautiful neighbourhood!

  • 4 of 5

Maplewood Cottage is beautifully, yet simply decorated and in the cutest neighbourhood! It worked well for our family with 2 young kids, but the one small bathroom means you would only want to share with close family! ;) Nice backyard (although not enclosed, so keep an eye on the little ones). Well stocked kitchen and comfy bedrooms with good closet space. Thank you for the lovely gift basket when we arrived!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your 4 * review! I'm so glad you liked our neighbourhood; it is a little gem of a spot in Victoria that few people know about! I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at the home, and the welcome basket. We like to make people feel welcome when they arrive at the home. We are planning to fence in the one remaining side of our back garden, sometime soon, and this will help with the very little ones. At least the plantings leave a very private feel to the yard:)

Wonderful home, perfect for the holidays!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4, plus 2 grandparents stayed here over the holidays and it could not have been better! Everything was spotlessly clean, the kitchen is modern and well-equipped (even for a couple of big holiday meals!), the atmosphere is cozy and comfortable, and there was even a Christmas tree and a welcome basket there upon our arrival. It is quiet, in a lovely residential part of town, and my husband and I enjoyed morning walks in the nearby park that encircles a golf course. Groceries were also within walking distance. Back yard was great for the kids to run around, and they also enjoyed the books and toys they discovered in the bedroom closet. We had a wonderful time, and the location was great for easy access to all the city had to offer. Great communication from the owner and the assistant who met us right on time to let us in. Will definitely recommend to friends. And we will definitely be back as soon as we can!

Owner's Response: Dear Holly, Thank you for your 5* review and your kind comments! I'm sincerely glad that your family had a wonderful holiday, and wish you the best in 2015. Perhaps we will see you again- summer is a very popular time for Victoria tourism, especially with our summer festivals and whale watching~

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.
