WONDERFUL VACATION HOME

  • 5 of 5
This is a great home in a great location. We loved the space in the house and garden and enjoyed barbecuing every night. The bedrooms were very comfortable, as was the living space, and the owner went out of her way to make sure that everything was fine. We were close to Cadboro Bay and Willow Beach and just a 20 min drive from downtown Victoria. We would definitely recommend this property and hope to stay here again.

WONDERFUL TIME

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I lived in this beautiful house for about 2 and 1/2 months. Everything was excellent and Rosanna and her daughter always were a great help if we needed something. The neighbourhood is really quiet and it's in walking distance to UVIC, bus stops with direct connection to Walmart and other grocery stores. The kitchen is fully ecquipped and provides everything you need to cook. I can highly recommend this property to all kind of travellers.

BEAUTIFUL HOUSE AND EXCELLENT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
Dear Rosanna,

My family and I cannot express enough how wonderful you have been. Your home is exactly what we were looking for when we decided to move our family to Victoria for a year. My husband and I with our 3 teenage children came to Canada to learn the English language.Time has flown by so fast and it is hard to believe that we have been here for 7 months and only have 3 months before heading back to our home country. We chose Victoria as a destination to both explore it's beauty and to take advantage of the superb educational opportunities. Choosing a home that was both warm and inviting while needing to be in close proximity to schools was a must. We were so pleased to find how close we were to grocery stores, pharmacy, restaurants, recreation centre and what a safe neighbourhood we are in. Rosanna has been very helpful when we have needed information on traveling and/or events/places we should see in Victoria and in British Columbia. This house is a place that we continually enjoy and highly recommend for anyone who is considering for themselves or family members to live in an amazing place who are looking for a fun and positive experience.

Thank you again Rosanna!
Sincerely, Johanna

As a traveling doctor, it is important for me to feel at home when on the road. My family's experience with this rental did just that. Modern appliances with its open concept made us feel like we were back in New York. The kicker was the homemade Italian dishes that Rosanna cooked for us. The seafood pasta was truly incredible, thank you again! We would recommend this home for any traveler looking for a quiet home close to both the beach and downtown.

Owner's Response: Dear Jeff,

It brings me much joy to know that you and your family enjoyed their stay and my cuisine!
I am happy to offer cooking lessons on traditional Italian cooking. I have years of experience and the privilege of learning from an Italian cooking master, my mother!

All the best in your future travels,
