Respect our home as your own and Have Fun!!
We had a wonderful time and found it cozy as home. There was plenty of space and the owners were very easy to work with.
What's not to love about this property! The house is perfect and offers every amenity for which one could ask, including an extremely comfortable queen size bed in the master and equally comfortable beds... Read more
Sally and Stu were very warm and welcoming. Their house and yard are charming. We ate dinner outside and found it delightful. The house had easy access. Communication was great. We had a lot of fun and got good rest. Oak Bay and Victoria are wonderful. I recommend staying here to all travelers. Thank you.
Our stay in this beautiful Oak Bay home was a great experience. The house definitely has some “character” not just because of its age, style and location but the owners have added their “uniqueness” to the space to make a wonderfully comfortable and pleasant environment. The house is fully equipped with all amenities. The backyard garden is quite special and the deck gets the morning sun. Located within easy walking distance to Oak Bay Ave shops and restaurants as well as the ocean was great for us. The Demitasse coffee shop is conveniently a block away. Definitely would want to stay there again!
This was a very pleasant, welcoming place to stay; we recommend it highly. Beautiful art; sunny, colorful, comfortable rooms; inviting multi-deck back yard with flowers and hot tub; gracious hosts. Very different from typical VRBO rentals in which we hope to be able to find extra towels and kitchen basics, etc. We ended every evening in the hot tub (very generous size for our 4-person group), admiring the moon and stars overhead. Everything worked beautifully, from the fully-equipped kitchen to the TV/internet setup, gas grill, etc. Conveniently located for sightseeing and nice neighborhood walks to the shore. We enjoyed our time in Victoria and felt truly at home. Would love to return someday.
Gorgeous back garden and deck for having morning coffee .
Delightful space for a family gathering. Bright, spacious, comfortable and clean -- with everything one needs from dishes to dishwasher and a kitchen to cluster in. The hot tub, the backyard and the deck made outdoor socializing possible and memorable. When the weather chased us inside, there was room for all to make music and share laughter without disturbing the neighbors. Convenient to the beach, the park, and Oak Bay Village. Three day stay whizzed by much too quickly and we'd return in a heartbeat.
This centrally-located house is definitely a character home with an inviting atmosphere. The owners are very friendly and have been living in the home for 30 years and taken good care of the property. The downstairs have been remodelled, however the upstairs floor boards creaked, which caused a few restless nights for our younger kids not used to these types of noises. However, the house itself was beautiful and easily accessible. All amenities were provided and available in the house which made it very convenient. The local deli (DemiTasse) serves fantastic coffee and food and is walking distance from the home.
We so appreciated that your home became ours for 3 weeks which were important in re-uniting our extended family. Your large well equipped kitchen allowed us to prepare group meals & the flexible reception spaces gave seating options. We'll long treasure memories of these special get-togethers - all bathed in gentle sunlight from the many fine windows. The colourful garden echoed the colourful interior décor - all our guests loved the "feel" of the whole place. And Oak Bay is such a pleasant neighbourhood with great food shops & access to beaches.
