About Jane Robson

I am a retired school teacher with 2 grandchildren whom I enjoy playing golf with. I love to work in the extensive gardens.

Jane Robson purchased this house in 1997

Why Jane Robson chose Victoria

I enjoy peace and quiet and this location is extra special for that.

What makes this house unique

I enjoy gardening and frequently take walks along the waterway. You can step off this property and be in the park. The feeling here is like living in the country but am within a 10 minute walk to all amenities.

Clean and cute with everything we needed!

  • 4 of 5

Jane was very sweet and helpful. The apartment had everything we needed and we loved the hot tub! The oven was a little tricky to figure out and we never did get much hot water from the tap in the kitchen but wasn't a huge deal as we didn't use it much. Otherwise everything was fantastic!

Owner's Response: I request that guests please call me if they are having any issues. The hot water tap must be run a while. Nothing wrong with the hot water tank. Depending on what the previous guest used the oven may have been on the timer. When I am only feet away or a phone call away no guest should have to struggle with anything.

Beautiful location!!

  • 3 of 5

The home was located on a beautiful inlet and we all loved the park across the bridge just steps away. The large windows and deck overlooked the view and it was quiet and peaceful. Jane the home owner was very welcoming accommodating as well. We travelled as a family and our 3 yr old had plenty of space to move around and the kitchen had all that we needed. The 2 bedrooms are large as described in the ad. Our only complaint would be that the old furnace is centrally located in the suite right between the bedrooms and when it fires up at 7am it is really loud! I don't blame the owner as the house is older and the suite is in the basement (with a walkout). It woke us up every morning. Overall I would still recommend this place to others as it was spacious and had everything we needed in an amazing location.

Owner's Response: The furnace is on a timer and guests should request that this be turned off or changed. I have never had a complaint for this before. I do regret that no one called to see if something could be done. The suite is on ground level and guests can walk out onto the patio and hot tub.

Beautiful location and friendly owner.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed watching the swan, geese, ducks, and other birds. It was great to relax in the hot tub at the end of each day.

Beautiful Victoria Flat

  • 5 of 5

This rental was absolutely beautiful, right on a waterfront park where you could walk, watch the water birds, play on the playground with your kids, or paddle around the inlet in the canoe provided with the rental. The hot tub and fireplace were highlights of our stay here. In a quiet neighborhood removed from the hustle and bustle, but it was easy to find and close enough to drive to downtown in 10-15 minutes. Our hostess was gracious and she truly thought of everything; the flat was well-appointed and scrupulously clean. The price is a downright bargain compared to others I looked at in Victoria. Would definitely recommend.

Great stay at Shoaling Waters

  • 4 of 5

We had a great 5 day stay at Jane's duplex right on the water in Victoria. The kids enjoyed watching the ducks and swans swimming in the water right outside the window. I only used the hot tub once but it was nice to have. It was a quiet spot in a convenient location for us with grocery stores just a few minutes drive away. We would definitely stay here again.

Great space, family friendly

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Jane's place! Tonnes of space and lots of light, all essentials were provided. We really appreciated the playpen and high chair for our one year old. Beautiful views of the gorge, and right by a lovely park and playground. We spent one rainy evening cozied up by the wood fireplace, and another relaxing outside in the hot tub. Stay here - you won't be disappointed!

Car: not necessary

I supply a canoe for you to enjoy. The 17 acre Esquimalt Gorge Park is a few meters away. Besides the beautiful walk along the waterfront there is an outstanding Japanese Garden complete with goldfish. There is a UVic sponsored, hands on ocean experience in the park. There is a playground close by. From your patio you have a very quiet view of the ocean and park. The hot tub also is a bonus to relax you. A great place to

unwind after a day of sight seeing.
