About Deanna

I'm new to the vacation rental market and I'm excited to offer the Urban Cottage for your vacation in beautiful Victoria, British Columbia. This was my family home for many years and I still live on the property. Whether you need restaurant recommendations, directions, tips for how to entertain your young children, or help with anything in the cottage, I am here to make your stay perfect. Or if you are looking for complete privacy, my personal suite and entrance are separate and will ensure that my guests have privacy...you won't know I'm here! I hope to see you soon and welcome you to the Urban Cottage!

Safe travels!

Deanna purchased this house in 1997

Why Deanna chose Victoria

The property is located in one of the best neighbourhoods in Victoria - South Fairfield. My home was built in 1920 and over the years I've updated it with new kitchen and attached family room, new bathroom and decor. I bought this property to raise my family and have many happy memories here. Now I am offering it to others to make their own memories of their fabulous vacation in Victoria :) I manage and clean the property myself, along with my mother and daughter. We believe that no cleaning service can clean to our exceptionally high standards or pay attention to detail like we do. My mother even irons the bed linen!

What makes this house unique

This is a one level home, so suitable for young children, as well as grandparents who may not want to do stairs to bedrooms everyday. There is a sunny back deck with bistro set to enjoy your morning coffee, as well as the afternoon/evening sun on the front porch. Enjoy a cocktail in the Adirondack chairs in the evening sun. Beautiful backyard is fully fenced...while awhile the afternoon in the double hammock! The street is only 4 blocks long and not a thoroughfare, so it's quiet and safe. My home is just a half block from the stunning Dallas Road waterfront, complete with sand/pebble beach, tide pools and paved walking paths along the cliffs. You can't beat this location! Within just a few blocks of the property is a fabulous children's play park, petting zoo, beautiful Beacon Hill Park, and the eclectic Cook Street village with cafes, boutiques and eateries. Downtown Victoria with its amazing restaurants, theatres and nightlife is at your doorstep...just a 5 minute drive or a lovely 20 minute stroll. The Urban Cottage has it all!

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I welcomed our youngest daughter's first child into the world while we stayed at the Urban Cottage. The home is warm and cozy so we ate most meals at home. Everything we required was provided. Our Thansgiving dinner with the family felt as if we were home in our own dining room. Our daughter was able to relax in this atmosphere before and after delivery. Our first visit to Victoria and we will be back.

Owner's Response: I am so pleased that you were so comfortable and enjoyed your month-long stay at the Urban Cottage. It was an absolute pleasure having you and your family here, not to mention the opportunity to meet your precious granddaughter! I am very glad that the Urban Cottage kitchen was fully stocked and had everything required to enjoy your family dinners and Thanksgiving celebration. Whether my guests stay for 3 days or 30 days, I take pride in the fact that the Urban Cottage provides a superior vacation rental experience with everything a family would need. I'm happy that the gorgeous and mild Fall weather we experience here in Victoria enabled you to enjoy your bike rides and walks along the ocean near the cottage. I look forward to having you back, and seeing the baby as she grows. What a wonderful family!
Kind regards,
Deanna

What a beautiful home and location! Deanna was so friendly and helpful, she even set up the backyard to accommodate my 18 mth year old! The kitchen and bathroom was stocked with everything we needed and more. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone! It was exactly like a home away from home.

Wonderful week at the Urban Cottage!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I, with our two children, stayed at Deanna's beautiful little cottage in Victoria for a week. It is everything it is advertised for and more. Its location is impeccable - half a block to Dallas Drive with the million dollar oceanview, a hop and a skip from the nearby Beacon Hill Park (comes with its own very very cool petting zoo for kids and the best playground I've seen for a long time!), coffee shops and a local butcher on Cook Street, and a short drive from Finest at Sea, an incredible seafood store with its own fish and chip truck. The cottage itself has a neat little story that Deanna will be more than happy to share; and it is clean and very well equipped. We cooked almost everyday given our two young children and did laundry a couple of times. The bedrooms are spacious and the cottage has lots of room to chill and hang out. Our favourite attribute of the house was actually its yard - beautiful flowers out front, and a safe, fenced backyard that boasts raspberries, an apple tree (from which I picked apples to make an applesauce!), a very well kept lawn and best of all, a swing set! Our little one would argue her favourite memory was the resident bunny Scout that she visited daily in the side yard. All in all we had a wonderful and relaxing stay. Thank you so much for your hospitality, Deanna!

Owner's Response: Dear Helen and Family,

I am so happy that you and your family had a wonderful time at the Urban Cottage and enjoyed it's spacious layout and cottage charm. I'm glad you had fun cooking in the gourmet kitchen and exploring all the wonderful specialty food shops and grocers nearby. The cottage really is situated in a little gem of a neighbourhood, so near to all the best Victoria has to offer. We love to host families in the cottage and were so pleased that your two sweet little girls had so much fun in the yard. It was an absolute pleasure to host you and your family and we hope to see you all again soon :)

Kind regards,
Deanna

Luxurious home away from home

  • 5 of 5
The Urban Cottage is the best vacation rental I have ever stayed in. Beautifully furnished and maintained, and spotlessly clean! Roomier than I expected from the photos and laid out in such a way that the 5 adults staying there could all find a quiet, comfortable sitting area to read, chat or enjoy the fresh sea air. The kitchen had everything you could need. Loved the Cook Street shops just a 10 minute stroll away, and exploring Clover Point at the end of the street. I would not hesitate to stay here again and highly recommend it to others.

Owner's Response: Dear Eleanor,

I am so happy that you and your family enjoyed your stay at the Urban Cottage. It was a pleasure meeting you all. I hope your parents had a safe journey back to Australia. My daughter really enjoyed her technology conversation with your Dad :) Thank you so much for all your kind words about my home. I work hard to provide a superior vacation rental experience for my guests and to have such wonderful feedback from lovely guests such as yourselves makes all the hard work worth it! We truly hope to see you all again.

Kind regards,

5 stars for the Urban Cottage

  • 5 of 5
This rental was in immaculate condition, and was perfectly outfitted with anything we needed. The location was fantastic. A short walk or bike ride to the beach, Beacon Hill Park, or the local market. With 3 young children the backyard garden was the perfect place to start/end our day with much exploring of the city in between. Cannot say enough good things about this property and the owner, who was so accommodating and kind. We will absolutely return and would highly recommend this property for anyone visiting Victoria.

Beautiful cottage

  • 5 of 5
We had such a great vacation at Deanna's cottage. This house is so beautiful and clean. The whole house has a wonderful homey feeling. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you need. We even found Tupperware for our day at Butchart Gardens. The beds are comfortable and the bathroom is spacious. We had two families with 3 kids, ages 10-14. The house is well laid out with room for everybody. We loved the neighborhood and nearby beach. The location is great. Close to the inner harbor, but without all the hustle and bustle. We had a good time walking to Cook Street for shopping, and had a great lunch at Bubby's. Deanna is very knowledgable about Victoria and gave us many good ideas and suggestions. She takes pride in her property and it shows. She is very helpful and took time to answer any questions we had. I would absolutely recommend this cottage to my friends and family and hope I can make it back myself.

Owner's Response: Dear Angie and Family,

It was a pleasure to host you and your friends and family at the Urban Cottage. I really enjoyed meeting you all and I am so happy you enjoyed your vacation. I really appreciate you taking the time to share with me your knowledge of wines, and in particular our local wineries...I love learning new things about what Victoria has to offer! I sincerely hope to see you and your family and friends again. The children were all so well-mannered and well-behaved!

Kind regards,
Deanna
