This spacious suite with magnificent views of the ocean, Gulf Islands, Mt. Baker and Sidney will be a home away from home, yet with proximity to a variety of activities. Wake up in the morning to the sun rising behind Mt. Baker, or relax in the garden beside the ponds for a glass of wine at the end of the day.
Major tourist attractions such as Butchart Gardens, Butterfly World, wineries, kayaking, whale watching are all within a ten-minute drive. A large comprehensive recreation & fitness centre, with a length & leisure pools and water slides is close by as well as hiking trails, golf courses and parks. The City of Victoria is a 30 minute drive away. A rental car would be advisable as the closest public transportation is a kilometre away.

We are a retired couple who enjoy golfing, boating, travelling and gardening. The garden features 3 ponds and a variety of fruit trees and evergreens--very private.
We just bought this home in the summer of 2010 as the view and location are outstanding. We have had the suite professionally decorated and furnished it so that you will enjoy all of the conveniences of home—DVD’S to watch on the HD TV, CD’s to listen to or board games to play when you’re weary of seeing the many tourist attractions in the Greater Victoria area.
