My home set in a quite residential neighbourhood. It's a good hiking up on Christmas hill and around Swan lake. It's very homey and earthy colours set of paint and also clean and quite. The host live in the house and has a comfort of her own room away from the guest.
It's 10 mins walk to bus stop,30 mins bus ride to downtown and an hour bus ride to and from the ferry. Close to uptown mall,UVIC and easy access to other areas on Vancouver island.
