Interaction with Guests
You are free to interact with us as little or as much as you like. We enjoy company but also realize lots of people prefer time on their own.
Very quiet location.
Walking distance to downtown along the Gorge Waterway. Two excellent bus routes at the driveway.
Sorry no smoking, no children and no pets.
Jeannette and her husband Don were a delight! Extremely helpful in learning to negotiate the city. Most wonderful was getting to know them as individuals; truly exceptional couple.
The space was clean and the home bright with sunshine.
I would recommend this space!
Great location, very close to downtown and all amenities, yet very quiet. I truly enjoyed my stay, would definitely come back and can highly recommend this place. Lovely hosts!
Jeannette and Don were for me an enjoyable place to stay, beyong the place itself convinient and clean, they like to share their travel experiences , were helpful to find what I needed. A place I recommand !
For me Joanne and Don live the spirit of AirBnB. I had an amazing time at their place - and with them (talking, biking, hiking, eating ... laughing). It's literally a restful room (access to the garden with waterfront), in a open home (clean and welcoming) at a very good location (quiet, but in walking distance to downtown - or go by bus, leaving in front of the appartement complex).
I enjoyed every moment and would definitely come back.
WOW… What can we tell…?! The best hosts you’d ever wished to stay with!
We spent 2-3 wonderful weeks at Jeannette & Don’s condo as our first step on the way to wander Vancouver Island. Looking for a laid back spot in Victoria, this lovely, generous couple showed us the lay of the land, kindly offered assistance, in fact consistently took any action to make our stay as comfortable and productive which led to a relaxing and enjoying experience. Taking all together: a gracious, open-minded bright hosts (they’re really special!), a lovely quiet room with beautiful view within a contented household, some 20-30 minutes of a lovely walk to downtown (2 minutes’ walk to the bus stop, great location!), being able to use the kitchen as well as other appliances for yourself, while all this for an affordable price, we highly recommend visiting Jeannette & Don’s place. Mostly recommended for the ones of you who either experiencing or interested in Voluntary Simplicity from first-hand. We would definitely like to visit here again or stay in touch.
Liron & Doron :)
This was a very nice place to stay in Victoria...I felt like I was a home!
Jeannette an Don are bright, warm and welcoming; she was very very helpful, making phone calls , driving me to visit places until I find it the right place where to live..she knows everything in Victoria.
The house was very clean and comfortable, an excellent location!...only 10 minutes by bus to downtown . or walking by the goose trail to downtown takes only 45 minutes and it's a wonderful walking.
They were wonderful hosts, I enjoyed their company .
I really look forward to staying connected.
Retired, well travelled and interested in meeting people from around the world. My husband and I love to read, listen to music and walk the waterfront areas of Vancouver Island. We enjoy cooking international foods and exchanging recipes with all our guests. As we advance in age we definitely embrace the idea of truly living each day, one at a time!
Victoria is a gorgeous small city with lots of waterfront walks and terrific bicycle paths - we have two bikes available if you would like to get out into the countryside or bike downtown which is 10 minutes away. We have available parking, laundry facilities, wifi, queen bed and large enough fridge for you to keep some food in. Minimum 3 day stay please. Sorry no smoking or pets allowed.
