About this listing

Spacious charming loft with one bedroom, private en suite and sitting room facing lush gardens.

Best Location in Victoria - James Bay

The space

I welcome you to stay in the loft of my 1908 character home in James Bay. The loft has a spacious bedroom with a queen size real bed. The newly renovated bathroom has a large soaker tub and pedestal sink.

There is a separate sitting room with a garden view, a Keurig machine for coffee, tea and hot chocolate, mini fridge and water cooler. For longer stays(more than 7 days) laundry and storage is available.

Walk along the ocean pathways and through the historic and friendly neighborhood and view its stately Heritage Homes and Gardens.

My home is a short walk to beautiful downtown Victoria, the Parliament Buildings, The Empress Hotel, Fisherman's Wharf, Beacon Hill Park and dozens of quality restaurants and coffee shops.

Your home away from home is quiet and peaceful with lush gardens. The private backyard and outdoor decks make for a peaceful oasis after a day of sightseeing.

My dog Bandit and I will do our best to make your stay warm and welcoming. We are a non smoking and no pets accommodation.

Guest access

Guests will have access to the upstairs loft with their own bathroom, large bedroom with a comfortable queen bed, closet, t.v. desk and chair, and a lovely sitting room. Laundry is available for guests staying more that 7 nights.

Interaction with guests

I love visitors and am always happy to engage in conversation, help with directions or things to do but will also respect your privacy.

Other things to note

If you are coming from the airport, hop on the YYJ airport shuttle and they will drop you off at the Coast Harbourside Inn which is a 5 minute walk (2 1/2 blocks) to my home. There is also street parking in the neighborhood.

Brenda is a gracious host. Her beautiful home is located in a quiet neighbourhood that is a short walk to shopping, resturants and local sightseeing. A very pleasant experience.

Brenda's place was a super cozy and quiet home space. I had some amazing runs along the ocean and the best sleeps ever while traveling. Brenda is a very gracious and friendly host.

This was a lovely retreat close to downtown Victoria. The room, bath, and kitchen area were very clean and fresh-smelling. The stairs to get to the room are quite steep and narrow, and no shoes are allowed upstairs, so be very careful going up in stocking feet. Brenda is very welcoming and helped me with several questions I had about bike rentals, food, and getting around Victoria. Very comfortable bed and cute bathroom. There is no standing shower- you climb into the soaking tub and use the handheld shower head to bathe. Lovely view out the back and it was great to be in a real neighborhood.

All was good on our second stay with Brenda. We really like the location between Fishermans Wharf and the beach.
