Located in a quiet residential neighbourhood, at the end of a private cul-de sac, this bright private room is located in a 16 year old home and offers easy parking for guests and a convenient entrance down 4 stairs to your room and a hallway to the bathroom. Two other rental rooms share the bathroom.
Only a two minute walk from the University of Victoria campus, three blocks to transit, and 14 minutes to entertainment, grocery stores, restaurants, public gardens, beautiful Mt Tolmie and 22 minute walk to gorgeous Cadbora Bay beach and village. It is a 12 minute drive from downtown Victoria and its famous inner harbour and parliament buildings. This area is great for biking. UVic also hosts a transit terminus for many key bus routes in town.
The room is bright with a large window opens to a secluded southern exposure garden. There is a shared bathroom a few metres away. This could be shared with two other rooms but that is rarely more than one.

I retired from teaching to create a charity called ConversationWorks. We help people improve their conversations, share their stories and find out how the wider world works.
Our busiest hosting was when we did a B&B when Expo was in our home town. Lots of great conversation, wonderful breakfasts and tips on how to make the most our of such a great party. We love building community wherever we go .
One of my fav sayings, " the answer to your challenge is often one conversation away."
