About Don Ohlgren
Don loves to have his homes, either his own or personally managed ones, utilized by other people who can enjoy the amenities of these places. Wife is best selling author, Anna Markland, who has travelled extensively with Don and they both know what guests truly want and enjoy when in another's place.
Don Ohlgren purchased this House in 2000
Why Don Ohlgren chose Cordova Bay
We bought this property 15 years ago and have extensively upgraded the yard to make it a shangri la for enjoyment with the hot tub, BBQ pit complete with overhead heaters, fountains, ponds and lower conversation deck. Also has a new upper deck right off of the main dining area, ideal for relaxing, reading or just enjoying the ambivalence of the property.
What makes this House unique
Complete office downstairs with desk, chair, filing and printer. Just bring your computer and settle right in to do business. Large room downstairs converted to a gym to keep you fit while away from home. This house is ideal for entertaining, relaxing and doing business while in Victoria. The perfect place to enjoy a winter without snow, cold weather and discomfort. It barely snows in Victoria (about once per year), and there is a rumor that there is a bylaw that it must be gone by the next day. Victoria has more palm trees and banana trees than anywhere else in Canada. Our temperature rarely goes below 0 degrees. Mild winters, friendly people, the most restaurants per person in Canada and great seafood make Victoria a huge tourist destination. Attached to the house is a two bedroom apartment, also available for rent. Ideal setup for a corporate retreat incorporating 6 bedrooms capable of sleeping 12 people. This house is also baby friendly and comes with the availability of over 20 useful baby items for free. A full list of all baby equipment and supplies will be sent to you and you just reserve anything on the list you wish to use. It will be waiting in the unit for you when you arrive. Saves a lot of hauling of cribs, high chairs, playpens, sterilizers, diaper genie and much more.

Perfect getaway for 2 families with adult kids
In Victoria for a family wedding over the May Long Weekend. Lovely, large spacious property with large area for entertaining and hosting a family dinner. Responsive host and lovely yard. Would highly recommend!
Beautiful spacious home!!
Don was wonderful to work with. The home is perfect and beautiful. Great location. A wonderful place to spend Christmas. We would love to come back in the summer and will absolutely recommend this house to friends.
Great location , great house lousy weather!!!Not the owner's fault!!
In Spite of a 41/2 ferry wait due to high winds the 10 of us had a great weekend.
The kitchen was well stocked, the hot tub a Godsend on a wild blustery evening, only a 20 min drive from the ferry and a 20 min drive into Victoria Every comfort was addressed even bath robes in the closets- a nice touch
Lots of parking but be careful you don't drive past the entrance from the main road
The treadmill should have been used as a result of overindulging on our parts but who wants to work out when 10 retirees go away for a really long weekend???
Would highly recommend it
A wonderful vacation house
We could not have asked for more. There were 6 of us, and we had plenty of room. Everything about the stay was wonderful - the location, the amenities, and the house itself. We had one minor problem with the grill, and it was fixed immediately. If we were to visit Victoria again we definitely would rent this house again.
Wonderful place to stay
This place was absolutely wonderful, but what made it even better was the outstanding customer service! The house itself was clean and comfortable, very spacious with a beautiful large backyard. The owner picked us up at the airport and brought us to the house with our rented vehicle, and came in to give a tour and explain a few things. He left a binder with all the pertinent information. The owner goes above and beyond to provide amenities such as the many dishes and glassware (enough to host), kitchen appliances (blender, Keurig stocked with pods, toaster, filtered water cooler, waffle iron, and more). We also really appreciated the laundry facilites with soap, all the baby items we were able to borrow (pack and play, high chair, etc.) and even a frozen package of his homemade delicious spaghetti sauce. It was perfect for a family starving from a long day of traveling. The owner was prompt in answering all our questions via phone or email and everything went very smoothly. My daughter forgot her suitcase at the house and the owner was kind enough to have it shipped to our next rental in Vancouver. This house was the perfect place for us to stay and even host a brunch during our family reunion weekend in Victoria. We had such a wonderful experience with the rental and the host and we wouldn't hesitate to rent here again if we're ever back in Victoria.
Super happy that you were happy with us. Glad to be of service to make sure your vacation here in our Mysty Woods home was exceptional.
Look to see you again next year.
