My husband, Jack, and I have lived in most areas of Victoria over the past 25 years and have found that James Bay is the perfect place to live. We love walking on the Dallas Road waterfront, through Beacon Hill Park or into the middle of the city to shop or visit our favourite restaurants. Both James Bay Village and nearby Cook Street Village afford wonderful places to browse, eat or sit and watch the world go by.
We enjoy traveling and meeting new people. When away from home, we have found that we are happiest when we can have a comfortable 'home base'; somewhere we can unwind for extended periods of time and can avoid daily interruptions from housekeeping staff or the need to eat out three times a day. We have recently purchased this property from Josie (mentioned in the reviews) and we are excited about offering the same experience to you.

Located in James Bay close to the park and walkways, you can stay here without a vehicle. Amenities are all within a 10 minute walk, grocery, pharmacy, clinics, liquor stores, etc.
This property is spectacular. It's in easy walking distance to downtown, nearby grocery store, excellent restaurants and Beacon Park. The accommodation is clean, well kept and modern. The kitchen is fully equipped with beautiful tableware, small appliances and cooking essentials. After long days walking the city, we enjoyed the quiet retreat of this spacious property. It made our vacation feel more comfortable and relaxed. I would definitely recommend this property and the owners were wonderful to deal with.
We waked into our rental home and thought right away that this exceeds our expectations. All high end finishes and luxury every where. We have never been so comfortable away from home ever. And if the house wasn't enough of a pleasant surprise the location was perfect, so many walkable destinations in every direction. One block to the beautiful Beacon Park, 2 blocks to the Ocean. It was a treat to leave the car in the driveway and walk to the markets, we felt so much more relaxed not needing to drive everywhere.
Can't wait to come back. The Stephens
Our family of four spent four nights here and were sorry to leave. The home has top-notch furnishings and appliances and was plenty spacious for our family. The home has two bedrooms. The master bedroom was used by my wife and I, the second bedroom for our teenage daughter, and a futon in an office space between the bedrooms was made up as a bed for our teenage son.
We had our own vehicle and could be in downtown in a few minutes, it's only about a mile to the parliament building, etc. Being so conveniently located to all the major sites and shops, we could come and go freely. Sometimes we just needed to refresh, or change our clothes for dinner, and the proximity made this very easy. Thanks to Delia's quick orientation and folder of helpful hints, we also found the grocery store and a nice restaurant nearby.
The home is located in a quiet and beautiful residential area about block away from a main thoroughfare that can take you into downtown quickly. One of things we enjoyed most was taking morning walks through Beacon Hill Park, which is a real gem of Victoria and only about a block away. We would be most happy to stay here again on future trips to Victoria.
My adult son and I spent 5 nights here in March 2015. The home is beautifully modern and well-kept, superbly clean and comfortable. We could not have been happier, with high quality bedding and towels, a lovely gas fireplace to use in the cool evenings and a well-stocked kitchen. Picture windows in the living room look into their gorgeous small garden and at the surrounding trees and residential neighborhood. Best of all, we were able to walk 15 minutes to all major tourist attractions and restaurants, a grocery store, and bus lines. We would love to return some day.
We stayed at Jack and Delia's beautiful home for over three months. We were so pleased with our accomodations. Every possible need was accommodated in the home and the kitchen was a dream to work in. James Bay is my favourite part of the city and it is excellent for walking and exploring. You are a mere 15 minutes walk from the heart of the downtown but live in a quiet, quaint neighborhood. Can't give enough stars to this accommodation.
We really appreciated the beautifully well-appointed, and updated suite. All rooms provided everything we required for a very comfortable stay. The living/dining level had a wall of large windows which extended an open, relaxing ambiance as we looked out onto a lovely garden and patio, yet, provided privacy. And, walking distance to downtown and other stores/restaurants. We looked forward to returning to the suite every evening - it was like returning to our own home. We will definitely recommend this location to others and return ourselves should the need arise. Thanks Delia!
