Wonderful neighborhood, two blocks to inner harbor. Clean, comfortable, home away from home.

The Space

In the heart of historical James Bay, within 2 blocks of the Royal BC Museum, the Inner Harbour, Parliament Buildings, and Pacific Undersea Gardens. Chinatown and the Maritime Museum of British Columbia are a short 10 minute walk. Enjoy Beacon Hill Park just one block away or the ocean front of Dallas Rd a quick 6 minute walk. An easy find from the Inner Harbour Ferries or Float Planes; easy location for airport shuttle drops/pickups.

This lovely newer 2 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom strata duplex is located in the heart of the James Bay neighborhood. The interior of this home is finished with the granite counter tops, hardwood floors, stone tiles, bright and beautiful with all the comforts to make your Victoria stay most relaxing.

Bright comfortable living with a contemporary open floor concept; watch the horse drawn carriages go by from the living room windows.

The kitchen is modern and efficient and includes granite counter tops, a convection oven, and KitchenAid appliances. If you don't feel like eating out - make waffles, a smoothie, or simmer in the crock pot; the kitchen is equipped to be your home away.

Before retreating to your main floor master bedroom, enjoy the 5 foot double head rain show in the spa inspired ensuite which hosts heated tile floor, elegant stone tile surround, and a marble counter top.

An open stairwell with glass banister takes you to your lower level where you will find another private bedroom with double bed, three piece bathroom, and laundry.

Sit outside and read a book, take in some sun or just enjoy the lovely flowers in the yard.

High speed wireless internet, Cable TV, unlimited calling Canada and US.

This is a strictly NON SMOKING property; no smoking indoors or outdoors on the property.
Sorry, love them, but no pets can be accommodated.

NOTES: I do request a copy of your passport prior to arrival.

There is an inlaw suite on the property's lower level; quiet and considerate for your comfort.

The Neighborhood

Lovely neighborhood with friendly neighbors surrounding; this is a big walking neighborhood.
Considered an ideal location as its just a few blocks from the city and yet a quiet residential area.

Getting around

Walking distance to most Victoria attractions!
A few blocks to city buses that take you all over the island. Walking distance to tour bus, seaplanes, ferries, and rental carsl

  • My family and I had our first airbnb experience at Deborah's home and had a wonderful time! The house is perfectly located downtown for those who want to explore Victoria on foot, but is on a quiet street with little traffic except for some charming horse-drawn carriages which would roll by periodically during the day. As first time airbnb users we were a bit anxious as to how things would work out, but Deborah was very flexible and accommodating and anticipated many of our questions before we could even ask them. The house was very clean and we were able to make full use of the kitchen. Overall great experience and highly recommended!

  • This beautiful space really is perfectly located. Out the backdoor is an amazing park, a few blocks further, big ocean. 5 blocks in the opposite direction and you are on the lawn of the Empress hotel. We walked and biked all over the city.

    Deborah was attentive but also left us to enjoy our time quietly. Her house is lovely, with a nice kitchen, comfortable beds, a great shower and cozy hang out space. The 4 of us lived there in great comfort for our long weekend. It is close to everything but just outside of the hub of downtown tourist activities so it felt very peaceful.

    Would highly recommend Deborah and this home!

  • We stayed in Deborah’s place for 30 days Feb/Mar 2014 and we liked everything about the home. First, the location is perfect; within easy walking distance of downtown, Beacon Hill Park, the Ocean walkway next to Dallas Road, and the all important grocery shopping (700 meters). Second, the home was very clean and provided space for us to spread out. Third, Deborah was very supportive and we had the feeling that we were dealing with a friend rather than someone operating a commercial rental. We sincerely recommend that this home be considered by anyone planning a long stay (or a short stay) in Victoria.

  • Beautiful home, close to down town Victoria which is great for those of us who like to walk.
    Everything was very clean. She made us feel we were there to enjoy her home. Parking would be an issue except Deborah looks after tickets. A "permit" to use while being her guest would be helpful.

    Response from Deborah:

    Ideal locations are often a parking issue indeed. City does not allow permits except for residence which must be tied to your plate number. In many instances the single parking in the driveway is sufficient and if a visitor does get a ticket; as you say I look after that.

    I'm pleased you enjoyed your stay.

  • Absolutely amazing home in an amazing location with an amazing price! Deborah's home suited our group of 4's needs perfectly and allowed us to enjoy Victoria to it's fullest extent. I would happily recommend these accommodations to anyone looking to stay in Victoria. A+!

  • What a wonderful home, great location, perfect for two couples who want to be near each other yet each with their privacy. And, the kitchen, it is perfect for cooking for a group and being able to stay in the conversation. As "out of towners" in town for the week of our daughters wedding it was a great place for us to be able to host small groups of relatives with intimacy. You can actually seat 11 people each with a dining chair or stool and a countertop/table upon which to place their plate! (I know we did it!) A short walk to the inner harbour takes you to an evening out and a short walk in the other direction takes you for a quiet walk in Beacon Hill park. And Deborah, we never actually did meet her, but she couldn't have been more welcoming and understanding. If you can snag this place, do. It was great.

  • Fantastic place to stay in Victoria - walking distance (7 minutes) to the Inner Harbor and downtown, easy access to the bike trails. Deborah was a great host and her home had everything we needed for a wonderful holiday. We'll definitely be back!

  • This property was a delight to stay in - so much nicer even than the pictures represented. It was immaculately clean, spacious, and in a wonderful location, within walking distance to downtown, parliament, Beacon Hill and the oceanfront walk along Dallas Road. Deborah was friendly and responsive to any of our inquiries, and we hope to stay here again in the future.

  • Fabulous apartment, with excellent service from the host. Spotless. 3 bathrooms. 2 comfortable bedrooms. Great kitchen.Everything we needed in a location with so many services close by, as well as major tourist attractions (such as the harbour). Nice quiet residential street.

I am also an airbnb host from Victoria, BC Canada (sorry not a French speaking one!) I enjoy the outdoors and experiencing new places and new people. Staying and hosting on airbnb has afforded me a new comfort level with just how honest and wonderful people are.
