|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
This unique property will transport you into a feeling of peace and relaxation. While located close in the city, your view is parkland and ocean; quiet and relaxing. Enjoy watching the wildlife. Go for a canoe ride or just soak in the hot tub on the patio and relax. You can also enjoy the crackle of the fireplace. Step off this property and you will find several paths for walks in the Park. Newly renovated Japanese Gardens provide you a place to rejuvenate. A ten minute walk will take you to a mall for all your needs. The Park also has a playground for children of all ages.
Only the best beds and linens and soft leather living room furniture are yours to enjoy. There are 2 TV's. The twin beds are adult sized. The kitchen is exceptionally equipped and you can choose to BBQ outside. Everything provided for a perfect stay is here.
I am a retired school teacher with 2 grandchildren whom I enjoy playing golf with. I love to work in the extensive gardens.

I enjoy peace and quiet and this location is extra special for that.
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.
My husband and I stayed in this delightful downstairs apartment for five days this summer and would gladly have stayed longer, Cool, comfortable, quiet, spacious with splendid views, we truly felt that we were coming home each evening when we returned from the day's adventure. Jane is delightful and very helpful. She provided us with valuable information and suggestions. For instance, she sent us to Enterprise to rent a car because they deliver it to your doorstep, and she helped us figure the best way to get to Butchart Gardens.. She also directed us to the bus stop into downtown Victoria is also very close by and and easy to use. All in all, a perfect getaway place, green and lovely.
My husband, (not-quite-2-year-old) daughter, and I stayed for 6 nights and had a fantastic time! Jane was a superb host, who made sure we had everything we needed and suggested plenty of things to do. The property is just across a little walking bridge to a beautiful park (complete with a really fun playground, and swings that even the adults can enjoy), and feels remote, though it is only a 10-15 minute drive from the heart of the city, or a short walk to nearby stores.
It was the perfect spot for us and our little one, but would be equally ideal for a couple, family with two kids, or a small group of adults. We would definitely recommend staying here and hope that when we come back to Victoria she isn't already booked!
We really appreciate that Jane was able to greet us upon our arrival. We were pleasantly surprised as to how large and open the duplex was. This was our first time to the island for us and found this location was easily accessible to everything we wanted to see. Very convenient to have the playground right across and a wonderful walking path system through the park to take you to nearby stores. Bonus to have a private hot tub to use. I honestly could have sat and watched the ducks, swans, etc all day everyday. If ever in the area again, I would definitely plan on returning to this vacation rental.
We had a lovely 2 night stay in Jane's duplex apartment. Jane was a welcoming and friendly host who's apartment is spacious and comfortable. It is situated just a 15-20 drive from downtown Victoria in a tranquil spot overlooking an inlet. It was a fantastic place to recharge our batteries after a long day traveling and busy day sightseeing. We especially appreciated the hot tub which really did relax our weary bones. We would recommend staying here to anyone wishing home comforts and a touch of luxury.
I made a mistake. It was not in Vancouver. This home is in beautiful VICTORIA BC. A place no one should miss as their vacation spot. :-)
Jane really goes out of her way to provide all of the nicest amenities in this VRBO home. Very modern, clean, good sized and less costly than a hotel would have been. We loved it! She was so helpful to us as well. The yard is gorgeous with many flowering trees in the spring. There is a close view of the pond with swans, egrets, and geese. We would stay here again if we visit Vancouver another time and would recommend it to anyone. It was so nice to come home to this house after a day of touring the various attractions. We also appreciated that is in a quiet residential area. Two thumbs up on this one! :-)
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.
