My wife and I come from families that have resided in Victoria for over 100 years. We have lived on langford lake since 2001, and in this area for over 30 years. We also own a local family business.

Roy purchased this house in 2001

We purchased this house as our home, and the one next door as a vacation rental in 2001. Our other home is the longest listed vacation rental on VRBO's victoria site (first one on the site #12233). We choose this location because it is at the end of a quiet deadend rd. and is probably one of the best lake front locations in the whole city of victoria. It is close to the city , but private and out of the way. We now have decided to share our home with others looking for an extra special vacation home.

Take out the row boat and explore the lake , possibly row down to the little island and try your hand at fishing for trout or bass. My favorite on a hot afternoon is a cool swim in the lake (langford is a very clean and safe lake) and relaxing on the dock afterwards. One of our favorite activities is walking from the house around to the other side of the lake, within a few minutes you walk over a long wooden bridge thru wet land birders paridise, and then follow a winding trail along the lake. This trail is and easy walk for most anyone or you can ride your bike. From here you can connect to the galloping goose trail, and ride your bike into downtown or out to sooke if your feeling really motivated. There are 4 top golf courses within 5-10minutes, world famous Butchard Gardens is only about 25 minutes, away, City Center Park with mini golf , kids play zone and bowling are at the other end of the lake. Also locally there is shopping, restuarants, pubs, movie multi plex, ocean beaches, Goldstream provincial park, whale watching and dont forget some of the best salmon fishing in the world. Or maybe just head 5 minutes into downtown Langford and grab yourself a delicious latte..... its all here waiting for you to enjoy!

Christmas visit

We had 5 adults stay at the Lake House over Christmas and it was lovely. The full kitchen allowed us to prepare a full Christmas turkey dinner. We enjoyed the hot tub and watching a family of otters on the deck every morning. Goldstream Park is about 5 mins away and worth a visit. It's an easy drive into downtown Victoria too which was beautifully decorated for the season. I'm sure a summer visit would be wonderful!

My two daughters and I recently returned from a glorious Girl Week on Vancouver Island. The vacation home was perfect for the three of us. The setting on beautiful Langford Lake inspired one daughter to say she felt like a movie star. My professional artist daughter was thrilled with the variety of art work in and around the home. Sightseeing and restaurant suggestions were provided, and the owner's son quickly rectified the situation when the power went out in two of the bathrooms. Our warmest thanks to Roy, Valerie, Sean, and Melanie for the use of your gorgeous home and for making us feel like family.

A wonderful retreat

Your vacation rental by owner home was just perfect for four women having a girl's weekend away.    We just spent a fabulous November long weekend at your Langford lakefront executive house.  We have been to Vancouver Island many times, but we have never discovered the Langford area.

Your home is perfectly located with stunning views of the lake.   We felt like we were out in the country but so close to the hustle bustle (and great shopping and spas) of the big city.    Your media room, gourmet kitchen  and fabulous art work in and outside made this an awesome choice.

 We would highly recommend this property, and since we definitely ran out of time to explore Langford, we plan to return and stay again at your fabulous property, your oasis on the lake.

Perfect Lakeside Retreat with Beautiful Views

Thank you so much for renting us your lovely lake home and the great suggestions! We all enjoyed the original art, house and grounds. Swimming in the lake was so fun, especially after a dip in the jacuzzi. We had a wonderful time exploring the island and our surrounding area…always looking forward to returning to an amazing deck/view. Enjoyed shopping at local farmers market and cooking in the well appointed chef kitchen. We walked to Goldstream park and hiked up to the tressle, rode bikes from km 10 to 40 and back on the galloping goose trail, hiked Juan de Fuca marine trail…all incredibly beautiful! We even exchanged money with a man who owned a blueberry farm on Happy Valley rd and ordered My Chosen Pizza which was great! We'll be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice comments. Yes this is a great spot on the lake, but close to the city and all that Victoria has to offer too. Glad to hear you enjoyed the lakeside deck and hot tub. Swimming in the lake after a soak in the tub is a favorite of everyone who stays here. If you ever come up in the fall, you can see the salmon spawn at goldstream park...... Lots of bald eagles too! Hope to see you soon. Thanks again
