Welcome to Victoria
VICTORIA IS HAVING A HEAT WAVE AND OUR HOUSE, LIKE MOST IN VICTORIA IS NOT AIR CONDITIONED. WE MAKE EVERY EFFORT TO KEEP THE GUEST ROOM AS COOL AS POSSIBLE.
Guests have access to our back deck and garden. There is a Pergola at the end of the garden that guests can sit in at any time.
Guests will be sharing the main bathroom with us, which is discretely located at the bottom of the stairs to the guest room, for a bath or shower but have their own 2 piece bathroom off their room.
Interaction with Guests
We are always present at our house when guests are staying with us. We try not to intrude on our guests if they seem to prefer to have time on their own but are there if they feel like chatting. Breakfast served between 8 and 9.30.
We like to think of ourselves as concierges when and if the guest requires extra information on the area.
Our neighborhood is close to downtown Victoria but far enough away to be peaceful and quiet. We love the convenience of all the stores on Quadra St, a 10 minute walk from our house. The neighborhood is full of vintage houses and beautiful gardens plus there is a wild flower and oak meadow at the top of our road with a view over Victoria.
By car, public transport or on foot our neighborhood is a delight to stay in.
Victoria is a city to visit at any time of the year. We have a mild winter climate, early spring and late fall season. The summer season varies from comfortably warm and dry to downright hot at times. Victoria has much less rain fall than the mainland.
The buses run frequently within blocks of our house to downtown, UVIC and Camosen College. The airporter is easy to catch from Quadra Village a few blocks from our house .
We have safe street parking outside our house.
