Victoria House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)

Get a way from it all in this gorgeous Oceanfront Home - Private Bay - Sandy Beach

Close to everything.. ON the cover of BC HOME, Fall 2011 issue

Main floor suite, three bedrooms,open floor plan, hardwood floors though out. Custom gourmet kitchen with new top of the line stainless steel appliances and granite counters. Top of the line cookware and associated appliances and utensils. Enjoy creating wonderful meals while looking out over the bay. Wonderful art and modern furniture(comfy) . Ocean side- virtually floor to ceiling windows throughout. Open living room with wood burning fireplace-great space for a family get together at the end of the day or merely gaze out over the water. Wonderful landscaping and gardens, three terraced decks over looking the ocean with views of mountains, kayaks and sailboats going by. Stairs down to a private sandy beach . Great spot to launch the kayak or canoe. Abundant wildlife - eagles, great blue herons, otters, and seals to name a few. A bird watchers paradise.

The three decks provide for a quiet retreat. Watch the sunrise sipping your morning coffee or the sunset sipping your ??? from comfy chairs set out on one of the decks (or enjoy a romantic candle lit dinner).

Soft colors and furnishings create a space to unwind and relax.

We are close to many activities such as golf, fishing, hiking trails, swimming, biking trails (famous Galloping Goose Trail). Great pubs and restaurants in the area.

The famous Butchart Gardens is 20 min away. Ten minutes to downtown Victoria

Guestbook comments from the owner

Pat&Ian Thank you for the wonderful stay in your home. We had a fantastic time - even on the rainy days enjoying the peaceful view. We loved seeing eagles, otters, ducks, swans, boats, etc! We all feel more relaxed and renewed. We are already looking forward to coming back someday soon!

Thanks again Glen,Nan & Amy

Lovely property

  • 2 of 5

3 women stayed 2nights in the Executive Home Oceanfront. Overall, the house was as depicted in the VRBO description. We had a few issues. There are 2 bathrooms but one of them is in the basement and was musty so we did not use it. The lighting throughout the house was subdued making it difficult in the evening. We did not know we would be sharing the house with another renter. Although Pat told us it was clear on the site, we do not think it is clear and found it unsettling.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your feedback I am so sorry to hear that you were disappointed....the second bathroom down stairs is being gutted and renovated as we speak, it is going to be lovely when it is finished. I wish you called me about the lights they are all on dimmers. It sounds like they were turned down....they are a bit confusing as there are so many of them and there are some that are on three way switches. Yes this house is a house with two suites, the beginning of the description says main floor suite, which this one is. Everything that you see on the photos are for the main floor suite the only thing that is shared is the laundry room and the stairs going down to the ocean. We do have another house on the water on its own if you are interested, it is a bit more but also lovely.....thanks so much Pat

Beautifully manicured oceanfront property.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed Thanksgiving Weekend at this property with plenty of room for family and friends. The kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans to serve up a feast! The floor to ceiling oceanviews were second to none! Thank you Pat for your prompt response to any questions or concerns we had during our stay. Can't wait to come back.

A fun time was had by all

  • 5 of 5

My sisters and I got together to just enjoy each other's company. We enjoyed this house as well. It was very comfortable and very accommodating. It was amazing to wake up and enjoy our morning coffee, watching out the window, whether the fog was rising or a variety of bird were entertaining us. The house was spotless when we arrived. We loved the décor and the art pieces as well and had numerous discussions about it. The location was great for the touring that we did. Would definitely stay there again if in Victoria and would definitely recommend the house to others. (The only down side was the downstairs bathroom. Somewhat small and damp. My towels didn't always dry after taking a shower.)

Owner's Response: thanks so much for your feedback I am so glad you had such a lovely time. The downstairs bathroom is being gutted and totally renovated, I needed the house to be vacant for a week, so it could be done...it is getting done next week. It will be so nice!! Pat

Amazing views

  • 5 of 5

This house was fabulous. It was wonderful getting up every morning and having coffee on the deck looking at the amazing, peaceful views. Did not cook while we were there, but I can certainly imagine spending time in the kitchen with the picture window. We loved canoeing, and generally loved the privacy of the location. Driving to Victoria was an easy 10 minute drive. Bathroom vanities are not great for laying out a bunch of cosmetic stuff, and would not be recommended for a bunch of women needing to get ready at the same time. That being said, I would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thanks Julie, I am so glad you had a wonderful time. Yes cooking in the kitchen is a real experience as you are surrounded but windows overlooking the ocean and all it brings. As well all of the appliances are 5 star including a fully equipped kitchen. I am not sure if you were aware but there is another bathroom downstairs. thanks so much Pat

John, Lancashire, UK

  • 5 of 5

The property was every bit as good as the photos suggested and the location, set within a very quiet and smart residential area, was excellent, about 15 minutes drive into Victoria or $20 for a taxi. The biggest bonus is the decking area overlooking the beach, all set within a really beautiful and picturesque cove. Plenty of wildlife to be seen including Humming Birds and Herons but a fantastic bonus was spotting a family of Sea Otters whilst out in the canoe. Overall, we (two couples) had a wonderful, relaxing and comfortable stay.
