Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

We booked this place a year in advance based on consistent positive feedback, and the property lived up to the hype. We were very pleased with the entire experience. Owner is incredibly responsive, friendly and accommodating. And this property has million-dollar views, wow. Pictures truly don't do it justice. If you're looking at this review my advice is to not waste your time looking elsewhere- this was a great find. Lots of amenities and access to water. There are a couple issues to keep in mind (just two bathrooms w/ one full shower, small-ish space) but if you are flexible, open to a good deal and not super high-maintenance, then this is a great option. Would absolutely stay here again.

Absolutely Lovely

  • 5 of 5

This property exceeded all expectations for our family, and we all agreed it was one of the prettiest and most comfortable places we have ever rented. The neighborhood is quiet and walkable, and incredibly convenient to downtown Victoria. The house itself is beautifully designed, all high end appliances and amenities, and decorated with lots of interesting art and personal touches. The landscaping was charming, the views amazing, and Pat was the perfect host---efficient, thorough, and friendly. It was such a pleasant, peaceful base from which to explore the area, and well-priced for such a large, well-appointed home. The whole family loved it!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Mary for your kind words....this is one of my favorite homes as well. It feels so far away from everything everything...yet is so close. It has a very tranquil feeling to it! Pat

Quiet Luxury

  • 5 of 5

I brought my family (plus a small dog) to stay at this beautiful property for four days. It wasn't long enough! We loved staying at this property! It is exactly as advertised. The neighbourhood is lovely and safe, and the house itself was clean, comfortable and gorgeous. We really enjoyed the artwork found throughout the home. The beds were very comfortable, and the linens and comforters were high end hotel quality. The kitchen was so well equipped, including great cookbooks! There were also spices, sugar and other sundries that we did not want to invest in while on vacation - so it was really convenient to find them there. Our little dog really loved the property as well :) The location was so convenient to the highway, making it a short drive almost anywhere. My family also appreciated the media room, which allowed movie watching without disturbing those who preferred to read quietly in the beautiful living room with its spectacular view. Our sincere thanks to Pat for a great stay, including making herself readily available for last minute questions and requests. We rented other VRBO rentals while on the Island, this was by far our favourite!

A great place for an extended stay

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I thoroughly enjoyed our time at this property, while attending our final residency at Royal Roads. It's convenient location less than 10 minutes' drive to the campus proved a much more comfortable option than staying on campus. We used the TV room as a 4th bedroom and enjoyed the communal areas especially the living room overlooking the water and the large dining table. Despite staying in January, we had a few clear days to venture to the bottom of the garden and the beach there - which would be amazing in the summer! Thanks to Pat, who was excellent to deal with, for providing us a home away from home!

Family vacation in Victoria, View Royal

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 nights in this Victoria home in November (4 adults, 2 kids). Our favourite part was the incredible view and the direct access to a little private beach, on a quiet bay. The neighbourhood was quiet and the property was very private. The home is wonderfully decorated and very comfortable. Very nice linens and comfortable beds, and the kitchen was well stocked with everything you would ever need. The workout room in the basement is also a nice touch! The only improvement I would recommend for the property would be a TV in the master bedroom. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would go back!

Owner's Response: HI Malinda...thank you so much for your kind words...yes I would have to agree it is a wonderful house! We were actually thinking of putting another TV in the Master bedroom, so good suggestion! Hopefully next time you come it will be in Pat and Ian

Thanksgiving Away

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for thanksgiving with 6 adults and 2 kids. It was an amazing location with wonderful access to the water and great decks to enjoy the view. The kitchen was a nice size for a few of us to be in there at the same time and there was enough room for all of us to relax even when it rained and we needed to be inside. The location was easy to get downtown from and very close to Hatley castle which was a nice side trip.

Our only issue was that the master bedroom does not have curtains (not needed for privacy) and my parents really like a dark room when sleeping. A minor issue really but good to know about ahead of time. The other bedrooms all have blinds.

Owner's Response: Hi Erin...I am so glad you and your family enjoyed our home...it truly is an amazing place, so close to everything, yet so quiet and peaceful at the same time. Best of both worlds! I am really sorry about the blinds in that one room...we are really torn as most people love to wake up and look at the ocean...sit back in bed and enjoy the view while having morning coffee. We are considering curtains, but have not decided since it is so private and the view is so amazing. Hope to have you back again Pat and Ian
