Our funky artisanal suite is in a 120 year old character home situated along the Gorge waterway in one of the oldest and prettiest areas of Victoria. It is close to downtown and just a short walk to all other amenities. The suite has all the comforts of home, and has been lovingly designed as a cosy and intriguing space filled with carpets, pottery, linens, original art works, furnishings and even toys! collected on our world travels.

The space
The suite was recently renovated by hand, with mostly natural, reclaimed, and remainder materials as to reduce plastic and chemical consumption. It offers a queen sized bed plus a very large comfortable couch. Bedding is provided for both the queen bed and the couch. The home is about ten minutes from the centre of Victoria by bus, car, or bike. There are shopping malls and parks just blocks away, all connected by bike lanes, busses and scenic walking paths.

Guest access
Guests have a self-contained suite with access to the laundry room which they are welcome to use. Guests may also relax in the garden or on the adjoining patio.

Other things to note
We share this property with 3 chickens and our duck, so taking tea in the garden is always fun. We are a family of three occupying the upper unit of the house. We are writers, artists and musicians. You may hear the faint sound of choral singing, or piano and accordion being played in the afternoons. The suite is a traditional "basement" suite, and has lower ceiling clearance than a standard upper level house ceiling. If you are over 6ft2inches, you may have to duck to avoid the odd ceiling beam :)

Location

Victoria, British Columbia, Canada

The Gorge area is a very scenic waterway where you can kayak, swim, canoe, paddle board, bike, or simply walk. Both sides of the waterway boast stunning parks and it is possible to walk or bike into the centre of the city along the Gorge from our home. The neighbourhood is a friendly and relaxed one where you can hear people playing the banjo or the accordion on their porches, where someone is always happy to chat while walking by with their dog, and where kids can be heard playing outside. There is a mall just a few blocks away which has a movie theatre, recreation centre, library, doctor's office, banks, grocery stores, coffee shops and restaurants as well as the usual shops. Pubs and cafe's are close at hand all over the 'hood, and there are two water sports clubs just a few blocks in either direction.
