Overview

About the property

Waterfront property on sand beach, 1 master view suite, 1 garden suite B+B

Situated on a virtually private sandy cove in a quiet neighborhood, with stunning south facing view of the ocean and Olympic Mountains, this B&B offers the best of west coast beauty and comfort.

Enjoy a spacious master bedroom suite with stunning world-class views from your king size luxury bed and be awed by the beautiful sunrise/sunset from the balcony. Observe a variety of outdoor wildlife including harbor seals, otters, eagles and a host of seabirds from the balcony overlooking one of the best view of the west coast. Honeymooners and returning guests have treasured this tranquil spot.

The spacious en-suite bathroom provides underfloor heating for additional comfort with a walk-in shower and soaker tub large enough for two.

I know how important it is to sleep well and in comfort particularly when we travel. To wake up felling rested and refreshed to meet the new day with enthusiasm and eagerness is a significant part of a vacation. So I make it my priority that you sleep royally on a luxurious quality king size bed dressed in 100% beautiful cotton linens. The healthy giving negative irons created by the ocean will also provide you with the best sleep ever. Then a healthy west coast breakfast of granola, fresh fruit and yogurt or toast and toppings, coffee/tea and/or juice, will set you up for the rest of the day.

A second bright and spacious bedrooms is located on the main floor houses a quality queen size bed and overlooks the garden.

The absolute best part of this property is the marriage of comfortable, contemporary, tranquil interiors with world-class views that impacts on everyone who steps through the door. It's not something that comes across in photographs or text, the magic happens when you're encased in it. The images of the property and its views are precisely as they are in reality, photographed and downloaded directly from my camera to this site.

The property is beautiful landscaped with double wide driveway, fully fenced and gated for privacy. It is super-clean, tranquil, and but a 10-15 mins drive from downtown Victoria.

About The Owner

With an emphasis to sustainability, green and healthy living, my partner, JC Scott and I operate a full service interior design company in historical downtown Fan Tan Alley (the narrowest street in Canada), at our design studio, call us if you'd like to speak with us: tel: +250 385 5335.

I immigrated to BC in 2001 from London, UK where I hosted travelers, which resulted in having many wonderful friends all over the world. I love people, friends and food, beautiful places and serenity. Our waterfront property is a sanctuary, we'd love you to experience the beauty of it and it's location. We re-designed and renovated it in 2009. S/W facing. A beautiful retreat.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

An incredible property in an idyllic setting

  • 5 of 5

This home was so lovely! Anita is such a great host, she customized our stay exactly to our specifications-who can ask for more? The water views are unbelievable, and the home is a work of art in its interior design. Anita greeted us every morning and guided us to the spots to sightsee or dine in beautiful Victoria. This place is very clean, well maintained, and the master suit has a large on-suite and the kitchen is very well appointed. Any family, couple or small group would love this place.

Amazing views and fun for the whole family

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing piece of property! Its a great place to stay if you are looking for a quiet and serene location outside of the hustle and bustle of the city but within a 15 minute drive. It was nice because it was so centrally located with close proximity to Butchart Gardens, Hatley Castle, downtown and the coast.

Overall the property was well maintained, clean, had comfortable beds and was very kid-friendly. Out of all the options in the area this has to be one of the best.

Definitely would stay there again but next time for a longer amount of time.

Beautiful & Peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our visit and being able to start & finish each day in such a beautiful, peaceful place!!! The sounds of the waves can just lull you to sleep. We actually saw some sea otters swimming & diving under, then reappearing a few mornings.

Anita is SO helpful & pleasant!! It was really nice to be able to communicate with Anita directly, both before & during our trip.

There was so much to see & do in the area... very accessible.

The peace, the beauty, the comfort... we highly recommend this place in paradise.
