Why Barbara Scott chose Victoria
We are only the 2nd owners of this 50's house that we completely renovated and added to. The property is private and feels like an acreage, yet is only minutes to downtown Victoria. We have created lush beautiful gardens, and beautiful seaside sanctuary. We love the peace & quiet here. This is a magical place and has its own spirit about it. Everyone who comes here is captivated by it.
What makes this Apartment unique
This is usable waterfront. At the bottom of the garden, there is a private dock to launch a boat or kayak or to float on an inflatable mattress. This property while so private and feels like you are in a different world, is only minutes to downtown Victoria and all it has to offer. Many bike trails, golf courses, shopping & restaurants are very nearby
Outside smoking OK
Children not allowed
The suite accommodates 2 people.
We hope that everyone has a wonderful stay. We ask only that you not smoke indoors and sorry but we do not take pets. We love animals but have to consider those guests who might have allergies. This is a residential neighborhood and so normal considerate behavior is expected but we know we don't need to tell you that, do we? :)
100% refund if cancelled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if cancelled at least 14 days before arrival date.
Waterfront Hideaway in Victoria
If you are looking for a quiet hideaway from the crowds but still close to the city center, this is a great choice. The 1 bedroom suite is perfect for 2 people and the gardens and dock with access to the water providers a stunning retreat after a busy day exploring all the delights Victoria has to offer.
I would highly recommend this property for a stay in Victoria. Great host, suite, and location! The gardens are beautiful as well!
Thanks for making our visit so comfortable Barbara!
What a lovely property! Everything was great and as promised. Barb is a wonderful host! Thanks!!
Peaceful, warm, inviting & beautiful
This property is a stunner! Located along “the gorge” with breathtaking views of the water. Comfortable and cozy, we spent one week here. There were no surprise noises: no trains, planes or traffic noise. We are in Victoria regularly and will absolutely book again. Thank you for the fabulous experience Barbara, two thumbs way up with thanks. 🌷
A Tranquil Oasis
A very comfortable and quiet suite. A lovely view from the sublime waterfront garden. A cordial and helpful host. What more could you want?
Even though the climate and the scenery and the places to go and things to do were not unlike our home in the US, somehow this place felt like a real getaway.
On the practical side, instructions were clear and accurate and reasonable. All the surprises were pleasant ones.
Barbara is a wonderful host. She graciously allowed us to check in unreasonably early. The cozy space was immaculately clean and well appointed. But once the rain subsided the true beauty of this property was revealed. Her gardens are a work of art and a delight to wander through. It was difficult to tear ourselves away when our stay was over.
Easy walking distance to shopping, restaurants, pubs, hospital, cycling & hiking trails. Drive 10 minutes to downtown Victoria.
