Vancouver Island Estate Rental Photos and Description

6 bedroom, 6 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 18 (with 4 in lofts)

Morningside Estate is an exclusive property, who reputation for extraordinary design, exquisite settings and world class hospitality has been growing since the day it opened. Whether you are having a family gathering, corporate retreat or an elegant wedding, Morningside Estate is the place to have it.

Morningside Estate was home TV show, Canada's Next Top Model Show (season1). The house has also been featured on HGTV's Homes by Design for its amazing Frank Lloyd Wright inspired design, which can be seen on our website.

Morningside Estate is ocean front property located on the protected waters of Saanich Inlet. The location gives rise to lots of possibilities. The famous Butchard Gardens can be reached by arranging a chartered boat; many of our guests are charmed by this boat excursion on Saturday night to take in the spectacular fireworks. It is necessary to book the passage well in advance as it is an extremely popular activity.

The shaded boat house on the waters edge is surrounded by cultivated gardens, a waterfall, an outdoor fire pit and peaceful sitting areas perfect for meditation. The commercial shared dock is a perfect launch for other exciting activities. Whether it is using the available double kayak or canoe, fishing from the dock or using it as a launch point for an air adventure tour of Vancouver Island, you will find that fun and adventure awaits.

The peaceful setting also lends itself to never leaving the property. The house’s open concept, merges inside with outside, seamlessly connecting you to the pool, sauna, hot tub and decks with spectacular views.

If you have children, a shared space with a trampoline and lawn for playing summer games (bocce ball and badminton sets provided).

The natural setting surrounding Morningside Estate is truly awe-inspiring. The ocean and fantastic natural setting are the inspirations for the gardens and water features. When you arrive you have a feeling that you have left the city behind. The cultured gardens and waterfall remind us that man and nature can co-exist and work together to create a peaceful experience.

Guests are often surprised to see bananas, olive trees, fig trees and a host of palms and bamboo growing in Canada. Regardless of whether your interests lie in aesthetics or horticulture, the gardens will be sure to delight.

The house has been designed to reflect the sensibilities of Frank Lloyd Wright. It is located thirty minutes from downtown Victoria nestled on the shores of a fjord in the Saanich Inlet. The property is surrounded by parkland providing a truly peaceful place that will remain in your happy thoughts for years. All this adds up to the fact that you can have the natural, peaceful setting and still be close enough to enjoy what the City of Victoria has to offer.

Janet Morgan, the property manager, will help you make your vacation a memorable. In addition to welcoming you upon arrival she can also arrange a grocery delivery, on site chef, or provide advice if needed on great tourist and nature activities in the region.

Should you need more space for family or friends, there is an additional home on the property located just up from Morningside which can be reserved in conjunction with this property.

Idyllic retreat creating lasting family memories

  • 5 of 5

Away from the crowds, lies this scenic secluded gem where the forest meets the ocean. This resort like home was the setting to celebrate my 50th birthday, had amenities to satisfy the luxury traveler, activities to satisfy the outdoor enthusiast and pool and lounge areas for those who just wanted to relax and rejuvenate. The kitchen was well appointed, beds comfortable. We took my family of 23 with 9 kids and all had a fabulous time, kayaking, visiting the gardens, stargazing, fishing and enjoying eachother. Memories that will last a lifetime were generated here and we are forever greatful to Janet for sharing her home with us all.

Beautiful estate with breathtaking views!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Morningside Estate! We had everything we needed for our family reunion of 23 people. The kids enjoyed the pool, hot tub, canoes, paddle boards and trampoline. Janet was easily available for all questions. We would highly recommend this property!

Golf: Did you know that there are 23 excellent golf courses in and around the garden city of Victoria. Whether it is world class golf course that host the Telus skins game in the summer of 2010 or something more modest for the duffers amongst us you will find it here. While the golf course vary in skill level required to play, all of them have fantastic views. They are all within 30 minutes of Morningside Estate!

Ski: What kind of a ski hill has so much snow that some of it has to be removed Mount Washington on Vancouver Island! During the winter months you can enjoy being near the water where their is no snow and then take a day trip to Winter.
