About this listing
Spacious charming loft with one bedroom, private en suite and sitting room facing lush gardens.
Best Location in Victoria - James Bay
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, kitchen use 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.
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.

No smoking or drugs. Please remove footwear at the front door. And also no pets.
My fiancé and I thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay in Brenda's suite in Victoria. We stayed on the top floor with our own private bedroom, bathroom and sitting room. Our entrance to the house was basically private as well. The bed was comfortable, and the bath nice and big with all necessities around it. Ceilings are low and sloping, but my fiancé is 6'3" and managed pretty well. Fridge was stocked with small snacks and water, a nice touch. Brenda was very accommodating and friendly and we felt very welcome. She knows the area well and was helpful in pointing out some cool spots to check out. The location was great for us, close to Fisherman's Wharf and a good 20-30 minute walk to downtown. Her little jack russell Bandit made us feel very welcome too! I would highly recommend her place to anyone! Thanks so much Brenda :-)
The host canceled this reservation 55 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Brenda's home was perfect. Very close to the wharf's, the location couldn't be better. Walkable distance to downtown too!
The house is lovely and Brenda has fresh fruits and yogurt waiting for me.
Brenda was very communicative and present when needed. Will def recommend this place and come back again!
One small negative note, since this is the top floor, I wouldn't recommended for very tall people (I'm 5''11 and it was fine), you would hit your head at least once.
Our host Brenda was very welcoming when we arrived. She took time to show us our accommodations and answer any questions we had. Being a very nicely finished attic, the accommodations are a little unusual but we found them quite adequate. The location is about 7 blocks from the ferry which was a good walk, and 10 blocks or so from the downtown harbor front. It is a well-kept older house in an attractive neighborhood.
Brenda did a great job of making me feel at home. The place was really clean and private. It was a really busy weekend because of Canada Day but she was really considerate of us. The onIy downside was the steep stairs. It's fine for a twentysomething but would be cumbersome for a fortysomething. I would recommend the place to anyone!
Brenda welcomed us at our arrival and introduced us to the room we'd be staying in. She provided a Keurig and many accommodations to pamper our stay. The location was perfect-- just a 10 minute walk to downtown. Brenda helped us find out what there was to do in the area and even provided us jackets when we told her that we would be whale watching. Truly a kind woman at heart and I'd recommend this stay to anyone unless they are well over 6 feet.
