We are located in a quiet neighbourhood close to all amentities such as banking, groceries, shopping, dining, trails, parks, and the ocean.
We love our home. We are happy to share the entire downstairs, perfect for a couple or small family that doesn't mind sharing a room to sleep in. We would love to share it with you!

The space

We are located within the Vic West Village area of Greater Victoria, a quiet neighbourhood close to all amentities such as transit, banking, groceries, shopping, dining, trails, parks, and the ocean. We are also just a 5 minute drive, 20 minute walk or short bus ride (#14) from the heart of downtown Victoria. We are 20 minutes to the airport and half an hour from BC Ferry terminal which can take you to many smaller islands or the mainland and Vancouver.

And here we are only minutes to beautiful beaches, parks, trails, golfing, dining, galleries, recreation, shopping, transit and so much more.

We love our home in the Community of Vic West and would love to share it with you! We are minutes walk to the Spiral Cafe (great coffee, food and music almost every night), Fry's Red Wheat Wood Fire Oven Bakery, Banfield Park (start of the galloping goose trail, green space, ocean front, tennis courts…). We are a short drive to grocery store bank and restaurants. And only minutes drive to beautiful downtown Victoria!

We love our quiet street, warm covered back yard patio with BBQ and hammock, cozy living room with gas fire place, wonderful fully equipped kitchen and hot tub! Children welcome!!! Happy to discuss pets.

You will also enjoy private laundry, netflix, wireless internet, all the amenities of home and much much more.

A cozy gas fireplace to snuggle up by, a sun drenched covered deck to sunbathe on, a quiet street, a big screen television to catch the latest movie, a kitchen designed to entertain in that make it hard to leave!

We had a lovely stay at Kate's home! The beds were comfortable and situated in a children's playroom. It felt very cozy and brought us back to our younger days. There is PLENTY of communal space, both indoors and outdoors, for us to lounge and enjoy meals together. The kitchen is fully stocked with all cooking and baking needs. We especially enjoyed Kate's beautiful backyard with its unique touches and garden filled with fresh goodness. The hot tub was a pleasant surprise after a long day of walking. We found the location perfect as it was near downtown but provided a nice retreat to come home to. With that being said, there's plenty of cute cafes and an amazing Thai restaurant nearby. Kate is a fabulous host! Although she was not there in person during our stay, she was easy accessible via text and was very accommodating. I highly recommened this beautiful home for your Victoria getaway.

Kate was an excellent host. She was extremely communicative throughout the entire process. The house was locked with a code, not a key, so we were able to check in late and never had to worry about losing a key. I would definitely stay here again. The sleeping arrangements were great. There was a regular bed for me and my wife and another bed on the floor with a fabric canopy for the kids. They loved sleeping in their "tent." As others have said, this place is especially good if you have small children. Kate runs a preschool so there are tons of toys, and these are the good kind - train set, blocks, play kitchen, musical instruments. For people who do not have children, the toys are all stored well, so you won't feel like you're staying in a preschool. Something I really liked about this place was that there were so many places to relax. There is an enclosed backyard with a hot tub and grill (that we didn't use), a hammock, some chairs under cover, and more stuff for kids to play with. The living room has some comfortable couches and chairs. She also had Netflix available. We appreciated having access to a full kitchen. It was stocked with kitchen essentials for us to use, with the expectation that we would just replace anything that we used up. There was milk waiting for us, as well as a nice coffee pot and a coffee grinder filled with beans from the local coffee shop.

The house worked perfect for two families sharing the space. The kids loved the playroom. The kitchen was well appointed with everything we needed. The outdoor space was comfortable. We enjoyed the berries in the yard. The location as great for riding bikes into town ... And we even walked once. The beds were comfortable. Thank you for your home!

We really enjoyed staying in Kate's home. Even though it was hot during our stay, the house remained cool. Since Kate also runs a preschool, there is a wonderful room full of great toys that our kids enjoyed playing with. The back yard is really nice, with a shaded patio. The beds were comfortable. We also liked that we could walk to a coffee shop and bakery and a trail near the water. Kate left us coffee and granola as an added bonus. Very nice!

We had a great stay at this house. Our family of five felt quite at home. The house is located in a great location and it was nice being able to walk for coffee or the bakery in the morning. The house was very clean and clearly labeled so finding things was quite easy. Kate left us some yummy homemade granola which was a nice treat. We didn't mind the lack of cable(in fact our girls enjoyed some canadian treats on Neflix), but had some difficulty with the wi-fi in the house (may have been on our end). Would definitely consider staying here again our next time in Victoria.
