The best recommendations come from our own guests, and they have written...

'Outstanding unit! We were one of the first people to rent this and we were completely blown away. Everything is BEAUTIFUL and the spot is perfect for going to Victoria, Nanaimo, etc. They leave a wonderful guest directory with lots of great information and really put some nice little details in. We will definitely be staying again, hopefully soon!'

'This has to be the Best priced suite in all of Bear Mountain - if not Victoria! We were lucky to find it, and would recommend it to anyone traveling to Victoria or Vancouver Island!'

- Pam and John, Arizona, USA

Your brand new, 10 ft ceiling, granite, and stainless steel applianced, 1 Bedroom / Bachelor suite is located in the Heart of the Village of Bear Mountain Golf and Country Club Mountain Resort. It is a luxurious, yet comfortable suite that overlooks the 3rd Fairway, and the Village of Bear Mountain.

The 36-hole Bear Mountain Golf Course is co-designed by Jack Nicklaus and his son Steve. There are in fact two courses... The 'Mountain Course' and the 'Valley Course'. They are both set in the foothills of Mount Finlayson and strike the perfect balance between playability and a year round golf experience for golfers of all skill levels. With panoramic mountain, city and ocean views and located only 10-12 minutes from downtown Victoria... You'll fall in love with this world-renowned Golf Course and Village Resort.

Bear Mountain has recently opened the 'Valley Course'... A second Nicklaus-designed 18-hole championship golf course which offers the same world class facilities as the first 18-hole Mountain Course. The new Valley course is a par 71, reaching 7,000 yards from the championship tees, and makes Bear Mountain the first 36-hole Nicklaus designed golf resort in Canada!

And for those guests who would rather explore than putt... There are many opportunities just minutes away from your own front door to explore, go antiquing, rest & relax at the Westin Resort Spa where the 'Full Body Massage' is to-die-for; or you can venture off to Jack's (Nicklaus) Pub & Restaurant for some of the best wings in town. Please note the pool is located next door at the Westin and requires a fee to use there facilities. Or you can catch the Trolley during the summer months and venture down the hill where all the box stores are - From Winners and Home Depot, to Costco, Wal-Mart, and the Brick. Plus lots of restaurants, and gift stores to browse through.

And all of this is just steps away from your front door...

Your home-away-from-home includes 10 ft ceilings; Granite, Tile, and Rich Chestnut colored Laminant throughout; Stainless Steel Appliances; In-Suite Laundry; and a gas Fireplace.

This is a brand-new suite that is professionally designed and decorated and includes a private bedroom area with a Queen-sized Sealy Mattress that has additional memory foam added to increase the height and comfort of your bed. The 600 - 1000 thread-count sheets and non-allergenic down-comforter will also ensure that you have a restful nights sleep.

While enjoying your breakfast from your private balcony, you can watch the golfers on the 3rd fairway pass by your top floor suite. Or you can look further down to see all the activities at the Golf Course Club House and local Town Market (due to be complete 2009) The fully-equipped kitchen features a large granite preparation area. This suite is compact and elegantly designed.

The comfortable living room is tastefully decorated with new leather furnishings; a gas fireplace; a 36' flat screen wall mount TV; quality stereo with CD, tuner, and iPod/MP3 connections.

The bathroom has Tile and Granite throughout, with a contoured tub and shower unit.

This luxurious condominium offers the traveler a truly unique experience when visiting Vancouver Island... You can venture up island for the day and go caving at Horne Lake, or whale-watching a 1/2 hour away in Sooke, or spend your vacation on the Mountain in the 'Whistler-like' Village, or even drive downtown and go antique shopping or beach combing in Victoria.

Whatever you choose, you know that your stay with us will be an enjoyable one... Please view our calendar below and book early to ensure your quality stay in Bear Mountain.

If you have a large or small group coming to the Island, please contact us for further information at one of the phone numbers below, and we'll be glad to help you in any way we can...

About Carmen

The Owner lives in Edmonton, AB Canada, and purchased his suites in Bear Mountain during the initial construction stages back in 2006.

Carmen purchased this condo in 2007

What makes this condo unique

The Resort is similar to Whistler in that you feel like you are in an Alpine resort with all the Luxurious amenities, yet you are also a 12 minute drive into Victoria BC with all of it's tourist attractions and famous landmarks. The Highlands (where Bear Mountain is located) has been fully developed with all of the large Box Stores like, Costco, Walmart, Home Depot, etc... It's just an ideal place to relax, breathe the mountain and ocean air, and even shop or go on tours by day, and enjoy the restaurants and nightlife by night... Or if you'd rather you can stay in at night, and light up the BBQ (and fireplace) and enjoy the view of the heart of the village, with a nice meal, while lounging out on your large balcony. It's all good!

Absolutely gorgeous! This condo had everything we needed to make our stay thoroughly enjoyable. Full Amenities, including Wi-Fi, cable TV, washer /dryer in unit, fully equipped kitchen and BBQ made for a very happy and confortable stay. The building has a great security system and we were very pleased to have the underground parking for our vehicle. The owners were very helpful and prompt at replying to all requests and inquiries. Highly recommend this condo.

My mom and I rented this lovely, luxurious bachelor at Bear Mountain. We absolutely loved it, nicely decorated, and equipped with everything we needed and more. Having on suite washer and dryer and all cooking and kitchen utensils was certainly a plus. The complex was very quiet and secure. Frank, the owner was very helpful and always responded very quickly. I particularly enjoyed hiking there. Beautiful views. It served as a wonderful f getaway for both of us where we could golf, hike, cook and enjoy our time together. Thank you Frank. We look forward to coming back in the near future.

We stayed here in July and although it's a wonderful location away from the city and a beautiful, quiet setting, I was quite disappointed in the condo itself. Since I've stayed in several condos and grown accustomed to finding many things supplied, I was not prepared to find absolutely nothing. There is no shampoo, bar soap, dish detergent (only for dish washer), tissues, etc. It would have been prudent to wash out our glasses and not have to run the dishwasher everyday with so few items in it. There was a partial roll of a few paper towels and 2 rolls of toilet paper. Bring along everything or drive back down the mountain to the grocery store. It would have been wonderful to sit on the balcony, however the lone chair is broken and a couple of low fold out hard chairs are there with a table then out of reach. A few throw cushions on the sofa would make it comfortable for people with short legs. We did not find a guest directory and had no idea what to do with our garbage until we luckily ran into a resident and asked. Also there is no trolley as advertised. We asked at the hotel and was told there was no such thing.

For a condo advertised as "luxury", I felt it was not. A few little additions would help greatly.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, We are sorry to hear that you were not fully satisfied with your stay at our home away from home as we pride ourselves on ensuring our guests have an enjoyable stay and come back. We try to keep our housekeeping to the highest standards, So we are not sure how it could have happened that there were none of the supplies you mentioned. Our housekeeper ensures that there is always a gallon of hand soap under each bathroom sink. In regards to dish soap we always keep an extra one under the kitchen sink, but apologize if there were none on this particular occasion. As for the fold out chairs on the balcony that was unfortunate. I was informed that our housekeeper went to buy new ones to replace the busted ones and because it was late in the fall there were no patio chairs available, so she put the fold out ones there for temporary use. As per the trolley, we are pleased to confirm that there is one and and it runs as per the schedule in the guest binder. We value your comments and look forward to continue providing an excellent stay experience to our guests.

My husband and I spent 8 days at Bear Mountain condo. We found the description of the property to be accurate and the photos current. The condo was clean and well-maintained.It is important to us that the bed is comfortable and, it was. We were happy with the location - just outside of Victoria. Shopping for groceries etc. was very handy. There were many options for restaurants nearby. Certainly,we would recommed the property to others.

We would have liked to be able to make local phone calls, and to have easier access to the internet. The lighting in the living room was somewhat limited. However,our overall experience was that this facility was good value for our money.

Outstanding unit! We were one of the first people to rent this and we were completely blown away. Everything is BEAUTIFUL and the spot is perfect for going to Victoria, Nanaimo, etc. They leave a wonderful guest directory with lots of great information and really put some nice little details in (cd player, notepads and pens). We will definitely be staying again, hopefully soon!
