On your next trip to Victoria, stay with a friendly family in our beautiful, private, spacious master suite complete with skylights and a view of a large sequoia tree. Access to the suite is through the living room/dining room area of our family home. We are friendly folks and we may invite you to join us for tea, but this space is best-suited to independent travellers.

Please read our full description below for more detailed information.

The space

We invite you to stay in a safe, comfortable space in our very central home. We take care to maintain a tidy, odour-free, inviting space by providing a great quality (firm) mattress, 100% cotton bedding, and good coffee and teas. We avoid using scented detergents or cleaning products. We do our best to create a welcoming environment with some personal touches to make it feel like home.

From here you can easily walk to beautiful Beacon Hill Park, to the Legislature, Museum, and inner harbour - in fact, to anywhere in downtown Victoria!

This is a great base for exploration of the city and a tranquil place to rest your head after a full day's adventure or work.

Guest access

While you will access the room via our living room and dining room, we'd like to maintain the main floor of the house as our own and the expectation is that you will spend your time at the house up in the master suite, not in our living space.

That said, when we are at home and have free time, we will be likely to invite you to join us for a cup of tea, a meal, or maybe even some board games.

Interaction with guests

We love getting to know our guests, meeting people from different places, and sharing ideas about local hikes, eateries, and other things to do. On the other hand, sometimes life is busy so we can't guarantee our availability! Depending on us and on you and what life looks like during your stay, we may become best of friends or we might only see each other in passing - sometimes not at all.

Other things to note

Our sleeping space and our young son's is 2 floors below yours, so we will all have great privacy and noise insulation during the night. When we are up and about in the morning, you will probably hear us making breakfast and you may hear some shrieks of delight from our little one as he's generally a pretty happy guy. We like to host dinner parties and games nights in the evenings, especially on Fridays, but they generally don't go too late and if you're keen you may be invited to join in. If you want a very quiet space for a long sleep in, this might not be the best option for you, but if you're happy to be in a house with some sounds of life then you will feel right at home.

Great location in a quiet and pretty neighborhood. The house is cute and the room with ensuite was perfect for our one night stay. It was exactly as described and really clean too. We didn't get to meet the hosts as they were away when we were there, we had a long restful night.

Katie and ilan were very friendly and welcoming, and had great tips on local places to check out. The room was clean and just as described, and is in a great location for walking to central Victoria.

Location is perfect. And you will notice that they really care of making room clean, neat, and cozy. All you need is prepared in the room. They are very friendly hosts. My best Airbnb ever.

Kate's place was perfect for our midweek getaway to the island. They are a very friendly couple who gave us some tips to help navigate us through this beautiful city. It was super clean, quiet and a private space with a nice miser decor. We walked everywhere. The inner harbour and attractions are close by. Their neighbourhood is nice to walk in as sell. Would recommend for sure.

Everything is just perfect: amazing location that is walkable from downtown, Beacon Park and James Bay, clean, cozy and private room. I booked the place in early morning the check-in day itself and there was no issue at all thanks to Katie's prompt communication. Thanks again Katie and ilan!

Katie and ilan are west coast adventurers who love the forests, the mountains, and the ocean. Little Arby is a mostly well-mannered and happy baby - if he cries, you probably won't hear it from the suite. We have traveled in various parts of the world and encountered tremendous hospitality along the way. We are happy now to be able to share our local knowledge and to create a simple but inviting space for travellers from other places.
