We are looking forward to welcoming people from all over the world to our guest suite in the highly desirable Fairfield area, one block from the ocean and the Dallas Road cliff walk. We are minutes away by foot from the Cook Street Village with its antique shops, restaurants, sidewalk cafes, grocery stores and hair salons. A walk into the city centre through beautiful Beacon Hill Park takes less than half an hour.
Our elegant, spacious and open-concept apartment offers two bedrooms situated for maximum privacy on either side of a cozy living room that includes a gas fireplace for warmth and character. A TV is also available for those with accounts for Netflix and/or iTunes. The bright and pristine kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to make light meals. The apartment is ground level and has two private entrances and a deck for outdoor dining or simply hanging out. Designed to take advantage of the sun's light, the space is naturally lit throughout the day.
Because we live upstairs there will be some noise from above. We try to be as quiet as possible but there may be some pitter patter of footsteps.
You can park in our private driveway if it's vacant or on the street in front of the house.
There is a full service laundromat at Laundrolounge on Cook Street. It's a five minute trip by car.
If you like to barbecue your food, there is a small gas weber on the deck outside your kitchen.

My husband and I have both lived in Victoria our entire lives. We raised our children here and now that they've grown we are looking forward to welcoming visitors into our home. We are happy to answer any questions you may have about the city and its offerings.
Because our house was built in 1914 the suite is not full height. The suite is 6'7" with the exception of some beams as low as 6'. As one guest noted, the suite feels airy and spacious despite the lower ceiling. My husband is 6'1" and comfortable in the suite.
- We live upstairs so ask that you are quiet from 11 pm to 8 am. Also, we have recently put down new carpet throughout the suite so ask that you remove your shoes at the door and do not wear shoes in the suite. Thanks so much.
- Please do not use towels or facecloths to remove make-up, especially mascara. Make-up remover is provided.
I am a married writer/editor with two grown children. I live with my husband who is also a writer and English teacher. We enjoy travelling and have spent time in Mexico, Europe and different American and Canadian cities, getting to know the places and hunkering down to write. Because our family home is now too big for the two of us and because we love the area in which we live we decided to open up our guest suite and become Airbnb hosts. Minutes after we posted our listing we received numerous requests for "Emilie's Nest" and realized we had opened up a portal to the world. How amazing. We look forward to meeting fellow travellers in the months and years ahead.
