The Space

My three level home is over 100 years old and still has some of it's original charms. The exterior needs some TLC but the interior has been beautifully renovated and furnished.

The house has lots of natural lighting and receives a lot of compliments for it's great energy.

The kitchen, living room, dining room, are on the main upper floor, which has original fir floors and a gas fireplace.

The bedrooms, a bathroom with a claw foot tub and shower, and a separate wash closet with toilet and sink are located on the top floor, which has cork flooring.

I am developing an organic garden with flowers, vegetables, and fruit trees.

I do my best to be eco-conscious and have a composting and extensive recycling system in place at the house.

Your sunny, private room has cork flooring, a very comfortable queen size bed, night stands with extra storage, a vanity table/desk, closet, full-length mirror, WIFI, iron and ironing board.

A hair dryer, hair straightener, and yoga mat can also be provided.

Guest Access

Guests have access to the shared (with me only) bathroom facilities, living room, dining room, kitchen, and patio.

I am a passionate cook so the kitchen is well equipped. If you're following a raw/healthy diet, you'll appreciate the Vitamix blender and Huron Slow Juicer:)

The kitchen has a gas stove, dishwasher, large fridge, and microwave. There is also a small BBQ in the patio.

There is a shelving unit set up especially for you to store your food during your stay. It is supplied with complimentary spices, cooking oils, vinegars, tea, coffee, and sweeteners. There will also be some free samplings (when available) from the organic garden

Guests staying for 3 days or longer can have access to the washer and dryer, which is shared with the tenants living in the basement suite.

Interaction with Guests

I am very friendly and helpful but I am also aware that you may want to have privacy and solitude during your stay.

I will take your lead on how much interaction you want. I've lived in Victoria on and off for 40 years and know the city quite well. Don't be shy if you want directions and recommendations!

My work schedule varies week to week. There are times when I am away from the house a fair bit, but I will make every effort to be available for your needs.

The Neighborhood

My house is located in Fairfield, one of the best neighborhoods in Victoria. I am two blocks from the ocean and Dallas Beach.

You can walk to Beacon Hill Park, Moss Street Farmer's Market (Saturdays, April to October), and Cook Street Village where you will find an assortment of shops and restaurants.

Victoria's best pizza, best cinnamon roll, and best vegan soup and sandwich are less than a five minute walk away!

For the fitness minded, Victoria is a great city to explore by bike. If you want to bring yours, there is space to store them safely. The YMCA, tennis courts, and a yoga studio are also nearby.

Getting Around

It is a five minute drive downtown or an easy 30 minute walk. There is a city bus stop around the corner from my house ($2.50 fare each direction).

Other Things to Note

I have wonderful, respectful tenants living in the basement suite.
