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.
