Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful time we had. Your house was the perfect spot for us to "call home". Lots of room for all of us to relax and visit with each other. Lots of homey touches and we appreciate the extras. This is our third house rental in Victoria and by far the best. We'll be calling again!

Clean, comfortable, great location!

  • 5 of 5

Dear Caroline,

Thank you so much for letting us stay at your lovely home. We had a great time relaxing, cooking, and spending time with family. We found the house very clean and well stocked with cooking supplies. Our kids age 2, 3, and 4 loved running around in the yard and playing in the loft. During our stay, we visited the Inner Harbor in Victoria, Beacon Hill Park and the Butchart Gardens which were all within a 30 min. Drive. Thank you also for being very easy to work with and always responding to my questions quickly. The next time we visit Victoria we would love to stay again!

Great Stay Near Victoria

  • 5 of 5

Caroline is a great host. She was so easy to communicate with and helpful in every way possible. The home is exactly as advertised. Our family of six slept comfortably and had plenty of room to spread out and relax after busy days exploring Victoria. Downtown Victoria is 25 minutes from the house.

Very comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent four nights in this house in Victoria, with my two sons and their families (4 grandchildren). The kids had fun playing in the backyard, which is large, and enjoyed the hot tub. We discovered a large school playground right behind the house that they loved. The house is comfortable and well furnished. The twin beds in one of the bedrooms are small and more appropriate for kids than adults. There is a large TV in the upstairs media room, which was also good for the kids. Most of the sights around Victoria (Hatley Castle, Butchart Gardens, downtown Victoria) were within a 25-30 minute drive. We had a very enjoyable stay, and I would recommend this house for a family gathering.

Great base camp to tour Victoria!

  • 5 of 5

Our Idaho British Car group spent 3 days at this beautiful house, and we enjoyed every moment there. The house was lovely, the neighbors very friendly and the accommodations very comfortable. It was nice to stay somewhere other than a motel room; we were able to visit and stretch out like we would not have been able in a motel. The close proximity to the bus route was a plus, as we took the bus to get downtown one day. Overall a very pleasant experience, and we would recommend this house to anyone looking for a more comfortable stay in Victoria!

Wonderful experience !

  • 5 of 5

This property exceeded our expectations in every way. I particularly liked the owners' attention to detail, quick responses and the property's location. In the middle of everywhere we wanted to go. It's a short drive to the harbor and a short drive to Buchart Gardens. We were very comfortable and felt at home here. After a long day, the hot tub was an added bonus!!! Thank you for the great experience.

Perfect place for our extended family!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this beautiful, expansive house and loved every second! We came to Victoria from Saskatchewan for a family wedding. There were six of us staying in the house – my husband and I, our two teens, my mother and my grandmother and it was perfect. There was so much room; we could have easily accommodated our original plan of ten people there. Everyone had their own space with a quiet room and comfortable bed to sleep in, plus plenty of room for a private space to watch to TV, to read, to work, to eat, to unwind, etc. We especially loved the back yard. The kids spent a lot of time on the basketball court. And every night we could all unwind in the hot tub. The extra touches left for us were so unexpected and appreciated. There was empty closets, empty pantry, lots of kitchenware, board games, books and great tourist and neighbourhood info. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who asks and do my best to book again the next time we are in Victoria.
