About This Listing
Beautiful private suite in James Bay in a renovated carriage house. Everything is a short stroll away: parliament, harbour, ocean, grocery, liquor store, etc. Full kitchen, laundry, coffee, and tea included. Cute and Cozy with gas fireplace.
Perfect location, private cozy suite, and close to everything! The sofa downstairs is a very comfortable hide-a-bed, if needed. The staircase inside is rather steep for people with reduced mobility or very young children. There is another staircase to access the 2nd level from outside attached to a beautiful balcony.
You will have your key to the private suite and this is all contained with laundry, kitchen, living room, bedroom and bathroom.
Interaction with Guests
The carriage house is located behind our house, so we will be around if you have any questions.
Exceptional location in James Bay. Ocean in three directions from our place, a short stroll away. 1min walk to bus routes. Beacon Hill park is one block away. The parliament is a 5min walk. Close to downtown, yet it is a quiet section of town.
Easy to get around by bus- many stops nearby on Government St. and Superior St. The City Bus terminal is close by- 5min walk. Downtown- about 10-15min walk. The ocean is also nearby. You'll LOVE this location!
Other Things to Note
Coffee and tea included.
If smoking, please smoke outside. Thank you. It is also a quiet neighborhood after 10-11pm. Well-behaved pet negotiable- there would be extra fee for professional cleaning.
This was such a lovely place to stay. You can't get a better location - within beautiful James Bay but an easy 5min walk to downtown Victoria through the harbour. Close to great restaurants, pubs, and shopping.
Gorgeous carriage house equipped with everything you might need and more. Separate access from the main house so very private. Maeva and Dave were great hosts; very nice and always available if needed. Highly recommend!
Fantastic little coach house behind the main home. Private and spacious for two people. Everything you need for your time in Victoria. Close to the harbor and minutes walk from eating out or grocery store. Spiral stairs take a little getting use to. Would recommend you stay here while in Victoria.
Everything was as described in the listing. Host was very kind and helpful. Nice and cozy with walking distance to the city nd harbour. Our very best recommendations, we will hopefully come back.
Dave and Maeva welcomed us upon our arrival being sure to go over where everything we might need could be found. They had a great list with ideas of places to go and favorite places to eat printed up and were open to answer any questions we had. When we would see them in passing they always made a point to see how our trip was going and if we needed anything or had any additional questions.
The house, was just as described, cute and cozy, we loved it!! Everything that we needed, and then some, was there, just like at home. Located just a few blocks from downtown we had easy access to every where that we wanted to go during our stay.
I was so glad that we decided to cancel our hotel reservations and give Airbnb a try. Dave and Maeva were fabulous hosts, we would not hesitate to recommend, or come back to, their home.

What a perfect place to stay in Victoria- easy walking distance to downtown, harbour and restaurants. As well as a short distance to the ocean walkway (Dallas Rd). Dave and Maeva made us feel at home, had incredible recommendations for where to eat in the city and were extremely friendly/welcoming. Would highly recommend to anyone travelling to Victoria - like a home away from home!
Maeva was very friendly! The carriage house was in pristine condition when we got there, and was better than what we imagined. It was in a great location, and couldn't have been more perfect. It is the definition of a cute, cozy and unique listing! Definitely plan on staying here the next time we visit Victoria, and would definitely recommend it to my friends!

About the Host, Maeva And Dave
Hello there! We are both ocean lovers and I moved to Victoria from Montreal, QC, 7 years ago (Maeva) and Dave is from Moncton, NB, and moved to the West coast over 15 years ago. I'm a marine biologist and a filmmaker in my spare time. I caught the travel bug early in life- thanks to my parents. I've been to the Arctic, the Antarctic, and a few countries in-between. Before studying biology, I was in the tourism industry. So for me AirBnB is a great way to get back into the fun of welcoming travelers (YOU!), helping you discover the best spots to visit or eat at! I'm into many outdoor activities: biking, sailing, hiking, diving, camping, etc. And I love great food and spending time with friends. Dave is a sales rep, so goes up and down the island quite often so can tell you all about it! He owns a small sailboat, Tanzer 26, and we love going sailing! We bought a house last year located in James Bay- 5min walk to downtown and the harbour- and hope you can enjoy this great location too! This year we also welcomed a new addition to our family, a little boy named Mathis. Feel free to contact us for inquiries or any questions.
