If you are looking for a stunning private suite on the water, you have found your place. Enjoy spetacular sunrises over Mt. Baker and the San Juan Islands from your kitchen, livingroom or private patio.
Close to shopping but still feel like you're in a very private setting. Private yard and patio with your own barbeque and direct access to the beach. Don't want to cook? Stroll down to the beautiful Beach House Restaurant for a great meal with amazing views. A beautiful beach at your doorstep where you can walk for miles.
From the first moment on the property, I felt relaxed and at home. Even in the end of February, there were flowers and trees in full bloom. Jane and John were welcoming and pleasant hosts, orienting me to the best walking spots and answering questions about the area. The nearby Beachhouse restaurant made for a nice evening out and the heated floors and fireplace made this spot cozy at night. I woke up to the sun over the ocean in a quiet neighbourhood. It was a short drive to all of the places I wanted to go in Victoria and Sidney.
In my many years of travel, this is one of the most pristine locations I have ever had the privilege to visit. The suite was so clean, comfortable and had all the comforts of home. The view from the kitchen was absolutely breathtaking. We saw seals, otters, herins and bald eagles from our patio. The owners were so friendly, helpful and accommodating. They even provided us with a computer app to track the wirldwide ship traffic passing by our door. Absolutely beautiful and so relaxing. A spectacular destination and one I would highly recommend.
This fully contained suite was well equipped and had unobstructed ocean and mountain views. It was beautifully landscaped, fitting perfectly with the natural surroundings. We viewed otters, seals, deer, and various birds from our patio, as well as numerous varieties of ocean vessels. Both John and Jane were friendly and accommodating hosts. We spent our vacation enjoying the sights and sounds of the Victoria area and coming home to our own peaceful vacation suite.
Fantastic location, with an unforgettable view. Staircase on the property gave us easy access for our many walks along the private beach. Clean and beautifully renovated suite with access to all amenities. We enjoyed our stay, and would highly recommend to anyone looking for waterfront and scenic views without drifting too far from the city.
