TRANQUIL AND STUNNING VICTORIA 4 BEDROOM LAKE VIEW AND ACREAGE ESTATE

Saanich House Rental Photos and Description

The stunning Lakeshore Country Retreat is a real pleasure to visit.

The stunning Lakeshore Country Retreat is a real pleasure to visit. The location is spectacular, the house is truly beautiful and the lake is one of a kind. Lakeshore Country Retreat is owned and maintained by an old world European couple who meticulously care for both the house and the gardens. You will be amazed at both the appeal of the styling of the house and the spectacular acres of gardens rich with plants, flowers, fruit trees, berry bushes, vegetables, and a wondrous mix of grassy area and quiet forest all leading down to the quiet edge of Elk Lake.

The home at Lakeshore Country Retreat is a wonderful mix of European flair and North American practicality. As you enter the home, you are greeted with floor to ceiling windows showcasing the view of the gardens with Elk Lake as a backdrop. To your left is the living area with the large sitting room and brick fireplace, beyond that is the dining room with seating for 8. At the far left of the house is the kitchen and TV area, both with excellent views.

The sleeping area of the house to the right of the entrance contains 4 good sized bedrooms all with a European flair. Each has a bathroom and the three main rooms all have views of the grounds of the estate. A wonderful feeling of peace and tranquility will come over you while enjoying this part of the house as all you can hear is the slight trickle of water in the gardens and the faint sounds of the farm animals in the estate below.

Proceed out of the floor to ceiling windows through one of the sliding glass doors onto the full sized covered patio ideal for entertaining with an outdoor fireplace and barbecue. Enjoy a short stroll to access the path that encircles Elk Lake for walking cycling or running. You can travel a short distance along this trail to get to the public beach or stop at a small swimming platform and dive right in.

This country retreat is absolutely perfect and offers an experience like no other.

Please note their is a private caretaker's suite on the property

Reviewer Comments:
Our rental property -- house and grounds -- was truly beautiful, tranquil, and perfect for a large group family reunion. The house offered all the space we needed to be together and to separate out. Love the 5 bathrooms! We felt relaxed and inspired by the setting. The freshly picked fruit and vegetables delivered by the owners was a warming surprise. The property description was mostly accurate. 'Lakeshore' is actually not easily accessible to the lake. The rental company told us there was a dock on the property available to us. When we arrived we learned we had no access to this dock. So our visions and expectations of fishing off the dock of our property, of jumping off the dock to swim, and of renting a boat we could tie up on this dock were dashed upon arrival. This was a big disappointment for everyone. I place responsibility for this on the rental company. The rental company also along the way was tardy in responding to our questions, and generally not very helpful. The greeter never did show up, although the owners were there to give us access at the predetermined time. Overall poor customer service from the rental company. I am not sure we would use this rental company another time if we didn't need to. BUT we may want to rent this property again. The owners and their home made up for the experience with the rental company.

Manager responded on 9/1/2014:
Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. However, we wish to address the dock issue as the property has never ever been advertised including a dock with the property. There is a public dock pictured at Elk Lake but its not listed anywhere in the amenities or the listing description to include a dock. The rental agent explained this to the guest and even arranged with the property owner to assist with getting this guest and their family access to the neighbours dock next door. We believe this review is being unfair to label our company with not being very helpful or not quick to respond. Our agent assisted this guest at every step of the way. The guest was greeted at the property as arranged by our company to be done by the owner. To say the greeter did not show up is misle

Reviewer Comments:
We rented this country retreat for a group of family members who were attending a wedding in Victoria. The property is stunning and the grounds are pristine. Peter and Vera are very friendly and welcoming.

The grounds are park like and beautiful. We picked berries and enjoyed the views from a generous and large deck with glass panels. The house is very well equipped and we had more than enough glasses, dishes, cutlery, etc. for large BBQs. Just wish we had more time to spend soaking in the views.

The one thing that was a bit of a problem, was the wi-fi connection was not working when we first arrived but was attended to after a day or two. You must have a vehicle for this property but the drive is on a lovely windy country road, which I personally loved! Just don't be in a hurry to get to town.

Reviewer Comments:
Don't let the plain exterior fool you. This house has gardens like the Butchart, lake views and views of Mt Baker in the distance, and the best owners on earth. They brought us fresh goodies from their farm daily! We picked backyard raspberries and enjoyed them on the glass fronted deck as the breezes off the lake cooled us. Two of the 4 bedrooms face the views and have large sliding doors so you can enjoy the breezes all night long. It was immaculately clean and the mix of original 1980's oak cabinets, tile and hardwood floors with newer upgrades was charming. It was so nice we regretted having to leave for touring each day, and our kids teared up saying goodbye to the owners, who had become like our own "grandparents from the old country". An experience we will never forget.

Reviewer Comments:
We were impressed from the moment we walked in and became more so the longer we were there. The view and the whole estate are beautiful! We were tempted to just hang out there and enjoy the peace and beauty.
Everything is well-tended and cared for. We were very comfortable there and it felt like home. We thoroughly enjoyed walking around the yard and gardens and seeing everything that was growing from apples to figs to nuts to vegetables. We appreciated the obvious efforts of the owners in making it beautiful and productive.
The updates that have been done are very tasteful and congruent with the rest of the house and the rooms which haven't been updated are still comfortable, pleasant, and enjoyable to be in
If we ever go back to the island we would definitely want to stay there again.
