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.
Our hosts seemed to be waiting for us, showed us the guest house, introduced their very cute baby and then left on a walk.
Even though it was a very busy time ( Christmas ) and we were only able to connect will Maeva & Dave only very briefly, they were very friendly and courteous hosts. The coach house had everything in it that you could need, was very clean and organized. Loved the location as well. Really enjoyed our stay here, and would definitely book again. Thanks Maeva & Dave for a lovely place to stay while away from our own home!
I enjoyed my stay at Maeva and Dave's suite. It was very clean and comfortable in a great location. I will definitely stay here again when I visit Victoria.
This place is exactly as described. We didn't really see Maeva or Dave much as we were getting to see as much of Victoria in the short time we were there, but they were very lovely and friendly. The location of this accommodation is fantastic with walking distance to downtown being less than 10mins yet it's nice and quiet and you feel like you are in a lovely little suburb. Definitely recommend.
My girlfriend and I stayed in Maeva and Dave's Carriage House over the November long weekend, and we couldn't have been happier with our decision! PEEFECT location, walking distance to everything, especially the beautiful harbour, Beacon Hill Park and the beach!
The suite itself was very cozy with everything you need. The fire place was a really nice touch on the cold days. When not exploring, we looked forward to staying in and making dinner in the great kitchen. Although Maeva and Dave were not in town when we stayed, they were very reachable and accommodating if we had any questions, and even let us borrow their bicycles.
Nothing but great things to say about our stay, and we can't wait to come back in the summer!
My family and I had a wonderful stay in the carriage house and would definitely recommend it to friends and family traveling to Victoria. The location (in James Bay) was ideal...within walking distance to downtown, the ocean and a grocery store. Maeva and Dave were very gracious and helpful hosts. Thanks again for the smoked salmon!

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.
