A little away from the hustle of downtown Victoria but within quite easy reach of all of the main sights. The suite has a view out over the trees of a natural woodland park so you can relax whilst watching the birds soar at eye level.
We are happy to be close to nature, with Mill Hill regional park a few moments walk away, and lovely Thetis Lake Park a five minute drive away. If you prefer to cycle, the 55 Kilometre Galloping Goose regional cycling trail is accessible about 1.5 kms away.
We created a comfortable space for family and friends to relax whilst on vacation on beautiful Vancouver Island. The suite is in a modern-built home, which was completed in 2012. We recently added a brand new, fully-equipped kitchen to the suite which boasts 9ft ceilings, a 30ft x 17ft living / dining area and a huge 17ft x 14ft master bedroom, complete with walk-in. The second bedroom is a more modest, but still very comfortable 12ft x 11ft. As well as wireless internet, the suite is equipped with a TV for Netflix, and a selection of puzzles and games for the occasional no-tech evening. The suite is equipped with baseboard heaters in each room. There is sound-deadening between the suite and the main floor to reduce noise transmission as much as possible.
Accès des voyageurs
There are stairs at the side of the house that lead to the rear, and the private entrance to the suite. Whilst occupying the lower of our home, the suite is entirely private, and includes it’s own outside, fully covered seating area and garden

Originally born in Ontario but lived most of my life in the UK.
In 2015 I retired early from my job as a purchasing manager and returned permanently to Canada, this time to the West Coast with my British husband.
We really enjoy living in this beautiful place, and as well as looking after our rental suite, I enjoy being able to spend more time to spend with my brothers and sister (who live in BC) and their children and grand-children. Added to that I've developed a number of volunteer interests, primarily with the Zonta Club of Victoria and also with the amazing students of Pearson College at Metchosin.
I really enjoy travelling, having travelled to a plethora of different countries across six continents, it is people and their culture that fascinate me, and I know there will always be more to learn :-)
