We fell in love with Victoria 16 years ago and have lived here ever since. We wake up every day and can't believe we are lucky enough to live in this beautiful place. We're both environmental professionals and when not working spend our time paddling, surfing, hiking, or just having gourmet coffee and people watching at one of the many local cafes. We live in the main house just above the suite.
Jordan purchased this house in 2009
We bought this home because, quite simply, it was our dream house. We love its unique character, but most of all, its location. You can't beat being right by the beach and beautiful parks, but still just a short stroll from all the amenities and charm of Cook St Village. We always dreamed of raising a family in this neighborhood and are so grateful to be here.
Amazing location by the beach, the park, and all amenities. The house is also an incredibly unique character home with gorgeous features; featured in the City's book on heritage homes. Its an amazingly friendly area with great neighbors of all ages.
This needs to be renamed 'Gem on the Beach'. The suite is new, built with 'green' materials. It's absolutely lovely! The location is fabulous with easy access to the water, local interesting shopping areas and close enough to downtown. (If you really want to go there.) Jordan is a very kind and accommodating host.
We visited in July 2016 and had a wonderful stay at the small Suite by the Beach. We didn't initially realize the suite is a converted basement, but it was well equipped and an excellent value once that is known. The value is the location! It is walking distance to the park and ocean and wonderful views. Parking was always available and convenient. There is a small queen bedroom with a comfortable bed. The living room is very small, but does fit the sofabed when opened. We traveled with our teenager daughter who slept on the bed, but two people would have been too crowded in the living room. We would not recommend a couple or paying adult to sleep on the sofabed, at least until a new mattress is on there. The support bar underneath the mattress can be felt from end to end. The bathroom is very small with limited counter space, so the table in the hallway next to the bathroom doubled as a vanity. The bathroom has a motorized drainage pump that you can hear it activate after the toilet is flushed but it is not a disturbance. The kitchen was equipped with simple kitchenware for light meals and the washer/dryer was a bonus. When we arrived we referred to the information binder on the kitchen table, and unfortunately the wifi information was old, so for the first couple nights, the wifi reception was poor. However, once we contacted Jordan, we realized the information was old and the new password had excellent WiFi. Yes, this is a basement, so there is noise transference from upstairs. You can hear footsteps and muffled voices, and a vacuum cleaner! Since we were not on a tight schedule, that did not bother us. But, we actually were afraid we would keep the owners/residents awake from downstairs, so we felt a bit hindered in our movie watching, talking or using washer/dryer, etc. Despite these issues, we would stay here again if we return to Victoria, B.C.!
This suite by the beach is in a great location and is well outfitted for a small group. Proximity to Cook Street Village and the ocean walkway is a plus. The address on Dallas Rd, and the pictures of sunsets on the site, would lead you to expect ocean views, but since this is a basement suite views are non-existant. There is a fair amount of noise transfer from the living space above. If you are a light sleeper, this might be a concern. However, if you are looking for value for money, this is a clean, modern suite, great kitchen equipment for cooking, and great location for walking near the ocean.
We stayed at this location in early August. The place was pretty much as described. It was easy to find, parking was readily available, the location of the unit was pretty much perfect (close to everything, safe, great scenery, calm neighbourhood, etc...), checking in was easy, and the bed was by far the most comfortable we had in the various places we stayed at during this trip. It was also roomy enough for our needs.
However, we can only describe the experience as average because we had some issues. The unit is located in a basement, so we had some issues with humidity and noise from above, often associated with a basement. Not bad enough to ruin a trip, but that certainly put a damper on our enthusiasm.
We addressed the situation with the owner after our stay, and we are pleased to confirm that the issues were treated with the utmost professionalism and will likely be resolved shortly.
My husband and I stayed here this summer on our holidays in Victoria. We found the place to be clean and contained everything you would need for kitchen dishes and linens. It was easy to find and Jordan introduced himself to us during our stay. We liked that it was right near the ocean and walking distance to the fisherman's wharf and the inner harbour. We would say that this place is a typical old house basement suite in that we did find it to be loud especially with children upstairs. If you are just looking for a place to sleep when passing through this place is great but because we were on holidays and wanted to be able to relax in the suite and sleep in it was too loud for us. We would probably stay elsewhere if we were looking to do that kind of vacation in the area again.
Great location right on Beacon Hill Park just off the coast. It is walkable to many restaurants, but a little ways from downtown Victoria and the Fisherman's Wharf. The suite was clean, functional and had a home-like feel to it. The washer dryer was amazing, the bed was comfortable, and everything was there to cook meals. Plus you get all this for 1/4 of the price of a hotel. We would definitely stay here again if we were to come back to Victoria!
The basement suite is very clean and has all the basic amenities. The wifi is terrible, the tv works but very limitted channels especially for kids/toddler shows. We ended up renting movies to entertain our toddler when we were home. The couch itself is comfy but don't use it as a pull out bed unless you want a sore back/neck. We said hi to the owner Jordan, seems like a nice guy and left us our privacy which is great. We would stay here again due to the location.
We're located ON sought after Dallas Rd across the street from one of the most beautiful beaches in the area & across the water from the snow capped olympic mountains. Bicycle, paddle board, or just stroll on the beach. While nature is just out the door we are just steps from the famous Beacon Hill Park, an urban oasis with beautiful gardens, ponds, activities, water parks, a petting zoo, and more. Amazing fishing and some of the best cold water diving in the world are just on the other side of the park. Its a very family friendly area with lots of kids parks close by - including the new Cook St playground complete with zip line and awesome new equipment. There is even outdoor exercise equipment for adults.
Cook St Village is a short stroll away, complete with multiple coffee shops, restaurants, grocery stores, pharmacy, a butcher, bank, pub, liquor store, and more. The City's best pizza, best coffee, and best pub are all here. While the suite is in a quiet residential neighborhood downtown is just over 1mile away.
While visiting Victoria there is tons to see and do. An incredible museum, undersea gardens, the empress hotel, heritage architecture, and all here. The famous Butchart Gardens and countless beaches, hiking trails, and parks are in driving distance. 1-2hrs west you'll find incredible rain forest and even spectacular surfing (but don't tell anyone).
