Mathew purchased this house in 2011
You will love the location, the bright windows, large deck, full kitchen and the cozy feel.
We have a beautiful new deck with patio furniture for dining throughout the day.
Willow's Beach is also very accessible, 12 minutes by car
We recently stayed for a week at this property. The house is in a great location, central to a lot of places in Victoria. We were there for a family event so it was nice and close to people we were visiting and downtown. Matthew and Chris have thought of everything to make your stay comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped. The house is clean and very comfortable. We enjoyed a BBQ one evening and sat out on the deck. My only comment for families (we have 3 children under the age of 12) is that the house has hardwood floors and Matthew and Chris live downstairs to I was always a bit nervous of little footsteps making too much noise or voices carrying. Other than that, our stay was great and I would recommend this property.
The property was great. Cozy, clean, good wifi. It was perfect for two couples.
The house is lovely and clean with very large bedrooms, and nice living room. The dining area is nice and bright. The kitchen works well for one person behind the island, and has great appliances. The fan over the stove is awesome!! We have never stayed anywhere where they provided as many dishes, pots and pans, small appliances, silverware including good knives and lots of utensils - even a muffin tin which I certainly made use of. If it's missing, just ask either Chris or Mat who are very congenial, helpful, and have a good sense of humour.
The location is fabulous!! You have easy access to all main streets - bus stops are within a couple blocks. There is a Fairway grocery store that is great, even has a Chinese food bar, good produce and meat departments, within about a 15 minute walk downhill. There is also a liquor store, and pharmacy within the same little mall. We took the bus back up the hills, but that's because I have breathing problems, otherwise it wouldn't be a bad walk home. The Caribbean Restaurant across the street from Fairway has good island cuisine and is a unique stop. 5th Street Restaurant and Bar is on the way to Fairway and has GREAT food and ambiance. The other direction will take you to a nice little Italian bakery within a 10 minute stroll down the hills, and further on a Thrifty's grocery store. The neighbourhood is GREAT! Lots of neat houses and yards. Summit Park is within a couple blocks. Be sure to climb the hills if you can as it is a super view of Victoria and parts of the ocean from up there as well as a large stand of Garry Oaks and wildflowers. Mayfair Mall is a 20 minute downhill walk to get to. Obviously it means you go up on the return trip, but there is also a bus. It's a very nice mall with a pretty decent food court.
The house has a lovely yard with a nice big wooden deck and French doors. The guys work hard at making the yard beautiful, and are helped by Shrooby, their cat. He may not be to everyone's liking, but we loved him so if he comes calling it will be our fault. haha He is well behaved, very friendly, is non-shedding, has a unique voice, and is not allowed in the upstairs.
You will not be disappointed if you choose this house. We were very happy there for three months - Jan to April, 2016 - and have been VRBO renting since 2008 .
The house was clean, spacious and beautiful! We also loved the fact that it had a dishwasher, washer and dryer. Couldn't have rented a nicer home! Only 10 min drive from downtown.
This was a great Canadian getaway for us. The house was spacious and conveniently located. Matt and Chris were gracious and provided for all our needs.
The Kitchen was a good place to prepare a holiday meal. The only thing we wished for was for the fireplace to work. John & Kaye
