Our lovely loft apt is a comfortable place to enjoy Victoria from. With 2 bdrms, walk out patio and a cozy livingroom this is a perfect place to bring your family to relax after a day at the beach or seeing the sites of the island.
Our Home is a 100 year old farmhouse- The original farmhouse in the area. It is filled with character and uniqueness. If you are used to the luxury of a 5 star hotel, then this in not the right fit for you.
Our Charming 2 Bedroom upper loft is the perfect location for your Victoria Holiday. Located just 10 minutes from Downtown by car, our home is easily accessible to Butchart gardens, wine country, the beaches, the island highway, the ferries and the airport.
The suite contains two Queen Beds as well as a single bed in the Attic. (single bed/attic space best suited for children or teens and is accessed through one of the bedrooms) The suite is bright and clean. It comes with a fully equipped kitchen and a cozy living room with cable TV. A Pack and Play can also be provided for our younger guests.
The suite has a lovely back deck overlooking our backyard and green space. It is a family neighbourhood with the chatter of little kids about and the smell of neighbourhood bbq's. If you are staying over on a Friday night you might be in for a treat with the fiddling group practice that can sometimes be heard.
Sit out on the back deck enjoying your coffee and watching the squirrels play in the trees.
Across the street is Hyacinth Park, with tennis courts, baseball fields and a play ground. The galloping goose trails are accessible across the street and provide miles of walking and biking trails. As well there 62 acres of open field across the street in Panama Flats for birdwatching, dog walking, etc
Just 2km away is Tillicum Mall with a Save on Foods, restaurants, Silver City movie theatre Pearkes rec center and the library.
The bus to downtown is located right outside the door, so you can leave your car at home and not worry about parking.
As our home is located on the edge between city life and rural life, we are easily accessible to Victoria General, Downtown, Butchart Gardens, Thetis Lake, Interurban Camoson College, Commonwealth Pool, Layritz Fields, Wine Country and the highways to up island and the ferries/airport.
We have two labs- Henri and Holly (seen on the bed in one of the pics) They are very friendly. They are not allowed in the suite and the suite is pet free.
Note: Loft means that there are stairs. The suite is on the top floor, so two flights of stairs need to be navigated.
