2000 sqft 3bdrm+ house Lakefront with Dock/Boats close to Downtown Victoria
My wife and I come from families that have resided in Victoria for over 100 years. We have lived on Langford Lake since 2001, and in this area for over 40 years.
Roy purchased this House in 2001
Why Roy chose Victoria
We purchased this house ,and the one next door in 2001. At the time we owned a lake front vacation home on the gulf islands, and we wanted to live full time on a lake. When these homes came up for sale we knew that we had found our dream location to live. Langford lake is a perfect place to live, as its only minutes from the city, but when your here it seems like your way out in the country. The fact that we can fish, swim and boat from our yard doesnt hurt either! This House is the Oldest Victoria Listing on VRBO.
What makes this House unique
When you stay here you are close to everything , but in a great getaway that lets you relax and enjoy the lake and nature.The walking trail just down the street, is a great feature that alows you to walk around the lake. We constantly have bald eagles, otters , mink , ducks , geese , swans and more around our yard. Langford lake has some of the best bass and trout fishing on the south island. One thing we have always loved here is the fact that there are no gas motors allowed on the lake, this makes it much more enjoyable as your not being buzzed by jet skis and big boats. From this house you have everything from fine dining, a casino, ocean beaches, shopping, a provincial park and several major golf courses all within 5-15 minutes away. No matter what your interests you'll find its not far from here.

The Lake House was a great place to stay for 2 months while we house hunted. There was lots of room and had everything we needed. Quiet neighbourhood and so close to everything. Roy was great. Very easy to communicate with.
I'll Be Back
My family and I stayed here for 6 weeks and had zero complaints. Zero complaints is pretty rare! The location can't get any better, as it is really quiet, yet close to everything we needed. We used the amazing trail system every day, as it was nearly right out our door. Our 2 1/2 year old loved the large rec room downstairs, as she requires a lot of running around space. Roy and Val were amazing hosts, and great people. We hope to come back someday soon!
Thank you for your nice comments and for your visit. It was a pleasure having you stay, and meeting your family. We hope you make it back another day .

Great little house on the lake
We had a great stay at this cute little house located on Langford Lake. The location is convenient for access to Victoria as well as the western communities. Roy and Val were very accommodating and helped to make our stay a great one. The house is very clean and the lake is great for swimming, fishing or paddling around. We will be back.
It was an absoulte amazing home
What a place to stay! I'd recommend anyone who can afford this budget to find this little piece of heaven just outside Victoria. With a 25-ish min drive to downtown, yet none of the hustle, bustle or noise of city life.
Definitely a go-to to stay in Vic.
Thank you for your comments . We are glad the house and location worked out great for your family. It was a pleasure meeting you all, and we hope to see you again.
Being close to downtown, but being on a private lake front, has always been what we love about the property too.
Take Care Roy N Val
We had a great family vacation! The property was just as advertised. It was very clean with a relaxing decor. Roy and Val were very welcoming. A quiet paradise away from the busyness of downtown Victoria. There is lots to do and we enjoyed the solitude and the nature visitors. Thank you for allowing us to enjoy this property. We would love to come back again.
We are glad that you all enjoyed your Lake visit, and had a great family vacation. We hope to see you again another day.

One of the best places we’ve ever stayed!!
This is the perfect family get away with beautiful lake access, paddle boat, kids kayaks, and convenient swim out dock! The kids loved catching fish in the shallow water everyday and swimming in the warm clear lake everyday. We even had the opportunity to see a family of turtles and had a river otter visit us for an entire morning. The kids also looked forward to roasting marshmallows and hot dogs on the fire pit and watching the bats swoop down right beside us over the water.
The property is spotless, spacious and the property manager is incredible we felt so at home during our stay. Thanks for one of the best experiences and places we’ve ever been to, we will definitely be back!! We highly recommend this for anyone looking for a lakefront property.
Wow.... thank you for the very nice review. Yesterday we saw a Bald Eagle catch a fish in front of the house.
All the wildlife we see on the lake has always been some thing special.
Hope to see you again soon. Roy n Val
