Overview

Victoria House Rental Photos and Description

This ground level suite offers a perfect location for a vacation in Victoria.

With outstanding views of Juan de Fuca Strait, and the Olympic Mountain range, and still within biking distance of Downtown, this home allows for the best experience....the calm of being located in quiet Ross Bay, yet close enough to the vibrancy of downtown Victoria.

This ground-level suite offers two comfortable bedrooms, one of which has a fireplace and views of the ocean. See floor plan provided in the photos. Located across the street from Ross Bay, watch the ships and planes go by from the public benches in front of the house. Sip your coffee on the beach, or take an early morning jog or walk on the promenade along the beach. You may even spot seals or otters along the way.

There is great cycling in the area too. Ride your bike along the coastline, all the way to downtown (about 3 miles away). Dallas Road walkway and bike path (which begin at your door step), are the favorite for most, for its scenic appeal.

Once in downtown, and the Inner Harbor causeway area, you will experience street performers, carriage rides, the Empress Hotel, the Legislative Buildings, the Royal BC Museum, Undersea Gardens, and a plethora of activity providers who can take you whale watching, harbor cruising, fishing charters, sea kayaking, and scuba diving.

Later in the day, return to your suite, and enjoy the views from inside, or sit on the beach, listening to the waves, as the sun sets over the ocean.

With unparalleled mountain and ocean views, and the appeal of downtown shops and restaurants just minutes away, this home features the best of practical sense and style. It is a warm and restful retreat offering guests proximity to town with the charm and privacy of a quiet neighborhood location.

About Tashi and Mickey

We are a couple, rooted in both Canada and the U.S., winding down in our professional careers, but enjoy being hosts to guests from all over the world. Having travelled extensively ourselves, we have tried to create a space that we ourselves would want, as we travel.

One or both of us will welcome you with a tour and can help you plan on what to see and do in Victoria. Ofcourse, we will respect your privacy, but remain available for any questions you may have.

Tashi and Mickey purchased this house in 2013

Why Tashi and Mickey chose Victoria

We bought this property for the spectacular vistas that surround it. The 'walkability' factor to all the essential amenities, was of great appeal as well.....grocery stores, restaurants, coffee shops, public transportation, etc, are at a 5-minute walking distance from this home.

Major transportation links to Vancouver, and the U.S., are within a 3-mile distance. These include the following:

-The Coho ferry to Port Angeles (allows transportation of vehicles on board).

- The Clipper passenger ferry to Seattle.

- Float plane service to Seattle and Vancouver (Kenmore Air, Horizon Air, West Coast Air, Harbour Air)

*Note that all three options above are within 3 miles of our home.

Additionally, Victoria International airport and the ferries port at Swartz Bay to Vancouver and to the Gulf Islands in the U.S., are only a 25 minutes' drive away.

There is off street parking available, and there is a bus stop near by.

As a result of all the above connectivity options, this home has great appeal. You would not need to rent a car for a major portion of your stay...we can help you plan your stay so as to minimize your overall transportation costs...so do not hesitate to ask!

What makes this house unique

Situated on the rim of Juan de Fuca strait, this home offers unparalleled views of natural beauty, as well as providing a private, safe and comfortable space to rest and rejuvenate. All essential amenities are close, as well.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have very much enjoyed our stay here. The apartment is well equipped and comfortable. Victoria is a lovely city. We have particularly enjoyed neighbourhood walks, admiring the beautiful gardens. Tashi is a wonderful, gracious and helpful hostess whom we have quickly come to admire.

WONDERFUL HOSPITALITY AND VERY COSY SUITE

  • 5 of 5
I came down from up island to spend some time with my aging mother. This is my 3rd different VRBO rental in the Victoria area and I have to say that my friend and I enjoyed this suite the most out of the three.
It was very cozy (electric fireplace in the bedroom/living area) especially since we had a cold snap this week . The beds were very comfortable, the bedding luxurious and we had every amenity that was needed to make it a very enjoyable 3 nights. Most of all we appreciated our very gracious and hospitable hostess, Tashi. She did everything possible to make our stay comfortable and worry free.
I have lived in Victoria so the sightseeing etc. wasn't a priority. However, we enjoyed IMAX once again and also this trip we toured Craigdarrow Castle. It was very interesting if you enjoy historical sites. The beachfront location was also lovely. We did a lot of walking on the safe and long concrete walkways on the ocean front. We had superb sunny weather to do this despite the cold temperatures. The ocean and mountain scenery was spectacular. There is no doubt that I will book this suite again for future short trips to Victoria.

EXCELLENT Location & FABULOUS Hospitality

This was our first time to Victoria and glad we chose this property to lay our heads down at night. It was clean and bright with magnificent views of the Olympic Mountain Range. This location was perfect to enjoy all the sights Victoria had to offer. A car is not needed as it was just a few short steps to the bus line. Tashi, the owner was extremely helpful and provided us with all the "must do's" in and around town! THANKS for everything! We enjoyed our stay and will be back again!

What a Great Place!

  • 5 of 5
This place was even better than the posting and pictures tell and show! My wife and our small children plus two of the kids aunties recently spent three nights at this suite and loved every minute of it! The space worked well with small children (ours are both under three) because the location was so quiet and the neighbourhood was so peaceful. Having the beach across the street was also really convenient and Beacon Hill park - along with its many playgrounds and petting zoo - was a three minute drive away.

The adults also loved the space and location. I had never been to this part of Victoria and I loved how it was away from the bustle of the downtown core but close enough to the excitement to walk there. A great location for walking and running.

The space was also amazingly clean, practical and warm. Tashi was really welcoming and helpful. She gave lots of good tips and where to go and what to do. This is one of the best rentals we've ever been in and the only disappointing part of the trip was that the time flew by so fast. We'd definitely come back to this spot!

Excellent Value for Such a Great Spot

  • 5 of 5
I just finished a stay in Victoria with my teenage daughter. We both loved the suite as it is clean, cozy and close everything you want to see in Victoria. Early morning walks are almost mandatory, just to check out the great neighbourhoods and of course the beach and water. Proximity to downtown is great either by biking or walking. I will definitely stay in this unit again on my next visit (if I am lucky enough to have it available, as it will book up fast). Cheers!

Wonderful get away!

  • 5 of 5
My fiancé, mother and I were traveling together and we couldn't have found a better spot to stay. The location of this rental is ideal- not too far from the city center and harbor (very easy to walk, bus or bike there) but far enough that you are truly able to relax without too much noise and bustle from the city. The view of the bay is breathtaking, and having the opportunity to take a two minute walk down to the beach and watch the sunset and enjoy a beverage in the evening was incredible. The floor is spacious yet cozy. The rooms were a nice size and everything is tastefully decorated and quite comfortable. Tashi is incredible- it would be hard to match her hospitality. She is a wealth of information and is happy to share any with you should you need help making any arrangements- best places to visit, restaurants to eat, which buses to take- you name it, she'll help you figure it out.
In a nutshell, we had an incredible time and if we find ourselves back in Victoria we would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Woweeee! Excellent!

  • 5 of 5
Truly a Gem!!! This delightful property is everything that it says it is! Wonderful location, clean as a whistle, and right across from the ocean. We brought our son and partner with us and spent four days and three nights in lovely Victoria, and with the two bedrooms, kitchen, dining room and scenic location, we couldn't have asked for a better setting. We most definately will return. Thank you! :)
