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.

The space

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 young children (walking age to 5). There is another staircase to access the 2nd level from outside attached to a beautiful balcony.
Something to note, the bedroom upstairs is mezzanine style so it is not closed by a door (opens on the stairs).

Guest access

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 are normally around if you have any questions. We have pretty busy lives working full time and with a young child, but love meeting new people and are happy to help you discover the best spots around Victoria!

Other things to note

Coffee, tea and little snacks included.

My family had a wonderful stay at Maeva and Dave's place. I would highly recommend it. They are very welcoming and friendly. The cottage was very clean, has a beautiful layout and design inside & out with great details (such as hardwood, high end stereo, washer/dryer, and new kitchen stocked with appliances/cooking ware, natural dish/hand soaps, balcony). The cottage feels secluded but is also very close to parks, downtown, beaches, etc.

What a great little spot! Maeve and Dave were great hosts and lots of love goes into this little haven. Everything required for a comfortable stay is provided, including basic kitchen provisions such as tea and coffee and snack bars to tie us over until we could make the 10 minute trek to the grocery store. The suite is ideally located - a hop skip and jump to the inner harbour, Beacon Hill park and the beach depending on which direction you go - and very well appointed. It was a great place to "go home" to after a full day excursion. Thanks guys. We'll be back!

Maeva And Dave User ProfileMaeva And Dave is a superhost.

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.
