Guestbook comments from the owner
Although it was a week long, time softens there and I imagine it feels too brief for any traveler who stays at North Cottage.

Randy and Louise have made a cozy, well equipped and very comfortable apartment above their home, located in a beautiful neighborhood in West Victoria. It is quiet and green with gardens, which you can look out over from your private deck with your coffee. The bed is very comfy as well and there is a lusciously deep tub for soaking baths.

Top of the list of good things is the bus service into the city which is a block away and runs like clockwork. You do not need a car, which is lovely.

Randy and Louise are present for any needs you have and absolutely respectful of privacy otherwise. I highly recommend this accommodation, it's a beauty.

Your hosts are Randy and Louise. Having travelled extensively all over the world we recognize good accommodation when we see it and we're happy to offer this piece of our comfortable home. Our life's philosophy is simple:

Walk softly, care generously, speak kindly and love deeply.

Northcott Avenue is robustly community-oriented and along with our neighbors we are involved in the growth and development of the larger community of Victoria West, and the arts community of Victoria.

Randy or Louise purchased this house in 2001

We chose this house because we rely on our bicycles to get us to work, town and picnics by the beach, and the nearby Galloping Goose Trail gets us there quickly without the stress of traffic. We have cycled routes in and around Victoria, the interior of BC, England and France and parts of South East Asia.

Everything we need is within walking distance.

WARM, WELCOMING, IMMACULATE, COZY, RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
Thank you, Louise (and Randy)! I enjoyed my short stay immensely. Everything Victoria within walking/biking distance, but North Cottage Suite is just tucked away enough in a quiet neighborhood one can go "home" for the night. Looking forward to my next adventure near you!

CHARMING ATTIC HIDEOUT

  • 5 of 5
The loft is a bright and uplifting space. Lovely little patio to enjoy breakfast on a sunny day, or in the rain lying in bed under the garret roof is very cozy! It is exceptionally clean and well maintained. Nice towels provided and a good sized tub to soak away in. Great location providing beautiful half an hour walk into town. Found a fabulous 5km running circle route that barely leaves the water’s edge. Owners highly accommodating.

GREAT FOR ONE QUIET PERSON IN THE SUMMER.

  • 3 of 5
The loft is beautiful, well appointed, and in a quiet neighbourhood with a great ocean-front park for walking. There isn't a lot in the way of restaurants or shops nearby, however. I stayed in winter and it was cold. The radiator heat is controlled from the main floor and was rarely on. The electric baseboards couldn't keep up. Lots of hot water and a nice soaker tub made up for it. More attention could have been paid to sound proofing when the suite was built. Even listening to quiet music on my laptop (without added speakers) and walking in flip flops prompted complaints from the owners below. There is plenty room for a queen-size bed - not sure why they opted for a double. This is a great suite for one person who wants a quiet get-away in the summer. The owners are friendly and accommodating too.

BEAUTIFUL!

  • 5 of 5
This loft is a wonderful place to stay for someone (or a couple) for a week and longer while exploring the fantastic town of Victoria. The place is well crafted, clean, and very comfortable to relax in. Just open the windows and doors and feel the perfect temperature in the loft. I love the colors of the place and the skylights make it unnecessary for lamps during the day. I was quite surprised that there weren't lots of bugs coming inside compared to what would happen in Illinois. The kitchen is well equipped with every cooking thing you need. There really isn't a need for a TV. The quiet is so peaceful and relaxing. The bus stops few blocks away and makes getting to places very easy. Louise and Randy are very helpful, great to talk to, and reliable. Thanks for a fantastic place to stay!

NEW TO VICTORIA

  • 5 of 5
What a treat it was to stay in the north cottage loft for 4 days. Randy and Louise have thought of everything to make a stay awesome. The kitchen is equipped with everything one needs for cooking, the bed is comfortable, and decor is very tasteful. Louise has added her artistic talents with lovely pictures. I particularly enjoyed a morning coffee at the outside table. The location was just right for me as I loved to walk. I enjoyed the 45 min. walk along the inlet to downtown. Also, bus service was very handy. Randy and Lousie were gracious hosts. I would contact them again if my husband and I are able to visit Victoria.
