I can help with travel planning, ferry information, and tourist attraction advice.
Quiet rural home on wooded acreage in the highlands just outside Victoria city limits.
Most people who stay have a vehicle to get around. There are all kinds of hiking and bike trails nearby.
The house is a no smoking and drug free property. We respect vegen, vegeterian, and allergy senstivities.
My eight-year-old son and stayed three nights with Peter and Janice. They were both extremely warm and welcoming and we would definitely stay here again. The bed was super comfortable as was the home that has a wonderful large living room with cathedral ceilings and a hot tub we enjoyed!
We indulged in a six course dinner with Peter as chef, that was a totally optional add-on but super fun! We even learned to use the pasta-maker!
I also loved the amazing water from their 450 foot deep well.
These are great people and this is a fantastic house in a beautiful area and I would highly recommend this place to any traveler.
Also, the drive up the mountain is wonderfully scenic, and we were only 22 minutes from downtown Victoria by car.
Peter helped us with ideas for restaurants and activities too.
Peter's preparation of fresh homemade linguini "southern Italian" style was a real treat! His selection of seafood was perfect for our stay. The mussels were dangerously delicious! Yum. The hot tub was a nice bonus, too. If you are in the highlands and need a place to stay a little off the beaten path or are looking to have world class cuisine, this is the spot for you.
Peter went out of his way to make our stay memorable. We loved the hot tub and a tasty 5 course meal. To give an idea of cost Peter added up the cost of the total ingredients (for myself and my partner plus Peter and his wife), plus a fee for his preparation time. Peter got us involved in cooking and was keen to show us how he was making the courses. We enjoyed the company of Peter's wife Janice who is an outdoor enthusiast, and shared useful info about the Grand Canyon and inspired us with her adventures. We would recommend you need a car to stay here!
That was a great stay! The place is awesome, the room is nice and clean, the living area comfy and the hot tub perfect for relaxing after a long day out. We had very good conservations, tasted some good beer from Victoria and watched some great movie. Definately can recommondate staying here!
Peter and Janice were great and hospitable! The food was delicious and accommodations comfortable and exactly as expected. Victoria is lovely. Thanks, Peter!
We had booked one night and stayed three nights! We had many discussions with Peter before we arrived and we were very well received. Peter and Janice were very friendly and helpful and very interesting. They advised us to go to PortRenfrew to see Botanical Bay and the beaches along the road and it was a good experience. We met a couple of friends of them, very nice and we were able to share a piece of cake with them. They were really great, they took great care of us and we thank them. It is recommended that warm welcome and we hope to see in France!
Great stay with Peter & Janice who were extremely accomodating from the excellent communication, help to get there ( picking us up and dropping us off:)), happily lending us bikes, providing info on what to do/where to go and having the lovely hot tub to finish the day under the shooting stars. This mountain retreat experience, our first with air bandb could not have been better. Thank you so much.
