Guests will have access to the entire top floor of this house. We live here a good part of the year, so you will find that this house has everything you need. We love to cook and the kitchen is fully stocked with appliances, cooking utensils, and plenty of spices that you are welcome to use.

Our cozy living room gets so much natural light and is a great space to lounge around. We have a great selection of books on the area which you can use.

The main bedroom has a queen sized bed with an excellent mattress and quality linens. The spare room has an extra futon that can accommodate 2 extra guests. Please let us know if you will need this so we can leave the necessary bedding.

The bathroom is spacious and has a washer and dryer in it for your use.

Interaction with guests

If we are able,we will check you in and answer any questions you may have. And if not, we will be in communication via phone and email and explain how to check in. The property caretaker, Daniela, lives in the basement suite of this home (separate entrance), and she is also available if you have any questions or concerns.

Dustin made sure that we had all the information that we needed for our arrival. He was there and happy to help us get settled in. The house was beautiful and in the perfect location. The house is very clean and organized, easy to make yourself feel at home. This was the perfect spot to settle in and explore the city.

Dustin and Tatjana answered my emails thoroughly and took the trouble to give me recommendations on local restaurants. Also, we greatly appreciated Dustin allowing us to leave our luggage with him for several hours after the 11 a.m. check out since we had an afternoon bus to catch. He made us feel very much at home. He also allowed us to use the local phone, which was great to check on ferry schedules without an international SIM card.

This was a great place, spacious enough for our family of five, and centrally located but in a quiet neighbourhood. Had a parking spot for our rental car. Lots of helpful resources provided too. Highly recommended.

The best equipped kitchen we've ever had at an Airbnb. Incredible location to explore Victoria on foot. The home was clean and spacious - a great amount of space for us and our two daughters. The home also came with helpful pamphlets and books on things to do all over Vancouver Island. We cannot recommend this Airbnb enough! You won't be disappointed. Tatiana and Dustin were extremely easy to communicate with and work out details of our stay.

This was our first time using Airbnb and my husband and I were not sure what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised at our wonderful experience. The home is charming, cozy and very comfortable - just like being at home. The pictures are very accurate. The bed was incredibly comfortable allowing us a great night's rest. Tatjana and Dustin were easy to reach and responded immediately to our emails and/or phone calls. The home is also in a perfect location, within walking distance to downtown (restaurants and pubs), the ocean front and beautiful Beacon Hill Park. I would definitely recommend this lovely home and would return without hesitation!

This beautiful home was just what we had hoped for during our first trip to Victoria! Super clean and very cozy. We enjoyed how easy it was for us to walk everywhere. Super close to the fisherman's wharf area (you have to check out red fish, blue fish), grocery store just down the road, next to a beautiful park, etc. We really appreciated being able to feel like we were at home, while out of town! Next time we are back in town, we will be coming here again. Thank you so very much!

Dustin and Tatyana were great hosts and available if needed. Great location a few blocks from inner harbour! Horse and buggies occasionally trot by on the street which is neat to see. Nice main floor of house was well appointed and comfortable. This is a gem, I will definitely stay here again. Thanks from Dave in Peachland
