About This Listing
I have a great one bedroom suite in the lower level of my character home. I always tell people that the ceiling height is 6'3" as it's on the ground floor. The private entrance features an outdoor sitting area for morning coffee (which is provided) or evening wine (you're on your own for that one). The suite has a new queen sized bed and recent renovation of the washroom.
This suite is conveniently located close to town and has easy access for those of you wanting to escape city life and indulge in some island adventures. This suite is a 5 minute drive to town, 5 minute walk to Uptown shopping centre and a 3 minute walk to The Galloping Goose trail for a casual stroll or bike ride. The house is also very close to all major bus routes.
The suite includes tv with cable and free internet access for those of you who might have to do some work.
The suite has a full kitchen for those that want to cook. The yard has a great garden in the back, so if you need to pinch some herbs just let me know. We allow a maximum of three people in the suite. There is a cot and blow up bed offered to accomadate the third person.
The suite is fully and comfortably furnished.
There is also an off street parking spot for those of you built for the human race.
There is one off road parking spot and street parking as well. There is a BBQ on request as well.
Interaction with Guests
We do live in the suite upstairs so are coming and going, unfortunately we are not always there to meet and greet everyone. We are only a phone call (or text) away if you ever need anything though. We try to give our guests space and hope that they will find our suite to be a cozy home away from home.
If you want any suggestions for dinner or hikes, please ask.
There are several Buses that will take you downtown in 15 minutes, they are about a 5 minute walk located on Douglas St. A bus to Uvic is only a two minute walk.
Other Things to Note
Centrally located to all of greater Victoria.
I enjoy meeting people that are staying, however I do love my privacy and am sure others are the same. I am respectful of my guests and hope they are as well. I do not smoke and hope that others do not smoke in my home. If you feel like something is missing, let me know and I may have some close at hand.
Shari & Desmond were fantastic hosts who were there to help with getting to know the city and surrounding area. Staying at this place was a great experience as it's within close proximity to downtown & outside the city with all the amenities of an apartment. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!
It is really a good house. it has enough space and everything for cooking. it is very warm in the room and Shari and Desmond are really good person. They are very enthusiastic. The location of this house is very convenient.
Really nice place close to up town ! Desmond was a great host . Me and my co worker enjoyed our 4 nights !
Shari was a fantastic host! She checked me in early than scheduled and she grinded me coffee! The suite was super cute and clean and private which was what I really wanted. It was what I expected. I got my own parking spot and it's only 10 min from downtown. I will definitely stay here the next time I'm in victoria for work!
21 Lurline is a quaint wee suite in a quiet neighbourhood close to the highway, downtown and shopping. We loved the privacy of a suite instead of just a bedroom and it was completely setup right down to the board games. The only downside, as mentioned, the ceiling is quite low.
About the Host, Shari
I have been bit by the travel bug and have been to 27 countries and counting. My favorite thing to do is meet new people; it is the best way to learn about a culture.
I love my home and enjoy Airbnb as it provides a home away from home.
