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

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!

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!

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

Wonderful rental property-loved our stay.

  • 5 of 5
This is a beautiful and well-loved character home, a pleasure to stay in. It is a short half block walk to the beach and about 10 minute walk to Beacon Hill Park-great location. The photos accurately reflect the home except that I was pleasantly surprised at the size of the family room, off the kitchen at the back-this was where we spent most of our time with our group of young children. The house was spotless and everything works well, everything was convenient, kitchen incredibly stocked with everything one could need for cooking.

Privacy is important to us when we rent a vacation property. This home is so well designed for this. The owner is in a suite in the basement, available if needed, but completely unobtrusive and respectful. Separate yards and home access, private entrances, ensure the privacy of all. Deanna genuinely cared about doing anything needed to make our stay perfect. I would absolutely recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Dear Lyn and Family,

I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at the Urban Cottage. It is my goal while I live on-site to strike that perfect balance of being available to accommodate my guests needs, while also giving them complete privacy. My personal suite's private yard and entrance were constructed specifically with my guests privacy in mind. I am so happy to hear that you appreciated this unique aspect of my vacation rental. Wishing you and your family all the best and a wonderful rest of your summer! Deanna

Great location, fantastic house

  • 5 of 5
We've stayed at some nice VRBO places, but this is one of the very best! The house is great, much bigger than it looks from the outside, and even from photos, and the owner, Deanna, has clearly put a lot of thought into creating a comfortable and beautiful living space for guests. The house was immaculately clean, and really well kitted out with towels (bath, beach and dish), kitchen implements and appliances (there are even complimentary toiletries, in case you've forgotten anything!) It's also genuinely kid-friendly, with lots of books and DVDS, toys and swings in the back and front yard. The house is perfectly situated, a couple of minutes walk from Dallas Road, with excellent walking/jogging paths beside the ocean, and a 10-minute walk from shops and restaurants on Cook St. (we recommend Mother Nature's Market and Deli for produce/health food and Bubby's as a really good, kid-friendly restaurant). And if you just want to hang out at home, there are lovely places to sit on the front porch and back deck. It was hard to leave; we can't wait to return!

Owner's Response: Dear Susie and Peter,

I am so happy that you enjoyed your stay and that your children enjoyed playing in the yard and perusing our book collection. My goal in owning and operating a vacation rental is to maintain a very high standard of cleanliness and hospitality for all my guests, so to read your comments about how my home is one of the very best you've stayed at is awesome! I clean my vacation rental myself, along with my mother, because nobody can launder and iron bed sheets and pillow cases like Mom! I want to make sure no detail is overlooked and that my guests are comfortable and have everything they need. Your family was an absolute pleasure to host and I look forward to seeing you all again next summer.

Kind regards,
Deanna

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Urban Cottage. The location and amenities can't be beat, especially when travelling with children. It was such a relief to return to this beautiful home to relax throughout the day after exploring Victoria. Being able to walk to the beach, Beacon Hill Park and Cook Street Village is amazing. Deanna is a kind, accommodating hostess who has ensured that the Urban Cottage is full of thoughtful touches.

The Urban Cottage impressed my mother in law as well who is a retired senior lecturer from the Hotel Technical College in Hong Kong where she trained staff for five star hotels in Asia. She had this to say - "Deliciously clean! A comfortable, welcoming spot with a spacious yet cozy feel, and a back porch that fits all sizes and shapes and ages. Very well thought out for amenities as well. And so close to the most gorgeous views. Recommended for even 71 year old bodies with walkers!"

We will be back!

All the best,
