Our home is located in artsy Fernwood, and is within walking/biking distance to downtown and many parks and beaches. It is a quiet and private side by side duplex, with lovely, quiet neighbors. Just around the corner is a bus stop that will take you anywhere you need to go in the area. It is a great home for a family vacation, with three spacious bedrooms and two and a half baths, plus a modern kitchen with bar, comfortable living room with gas fireplace, wireless internet, private back yard, covered patio, and washer and dryer.
The house has two floors, with an open concept living/dining area downstairs and bedrooms upstairs. The garage, which has 11' celings, has been converted to what we call 'The Monkey Room' which includes a climbing wall, mats, rings, and a wall-mounted flat screen television and DVD player, as well as Netflix and Apple TV.
There are three large bedrooms upstairs; one with a king size bed and ensuite bathroom, and two children's rooms, one with a bunk bed and bay window with comfortable window seat looking east. The light in this room in the morning is lovely. There is an additional full bath upstairs, plus a half-bath on the main floor.
Outside, the lovely private yard includes a family size table, kids swing, hammock, organically grown herbs, berries and vegetables (help yourself!), and bbq. The garden is sunny all day, and is a truly relaxing place to be.
There is parking in the driveway for one car, and wireless internet. Our home is just four years old, and has all the amenities required for a relaxing stay in this beautiful city. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.
Please respect our home as you would your own. We do not allow smoking inside and are respectful of our neighbors. Please leave the house tidy when you leave.
We had a fabulous time at Erin's place, felt very comfortable, loved all the furnishings. Everything we needed was there, and Erin even left us some delicious homemade chocolate chip cookies to much on. My son is 3 and had a blast in the monkey room, and also played with the ponies and the dollhouse in the upstairs hallway. I enjoyed the extra long soaker tub in the en suite bathroom every day that we were there. We will definitely be back, next time we are in Victoria!
Fabulous house in a great neighbourhood! With your kids climbing the wall in the monkey room, you can the amazing peace of the gorgeous house. Erin will leave you instructions for any question you might have and all of the beds are comfortable. We were thrilled with our visit.
We had a fantastic time at Erin's house... We had everything we could possibly need. Thankyou so much :)
Our stay on Cedar Hill Road was magnificent. It is a great location in a quiet neighbourhood. The house had plenty of room for my family plus a grandma! The backyard was relaxing and amazingly private. We would definitely stay there again.
This beautiful home was located in a lovely neighbourhood in Victoria. the home was close to main roads and we had a very easy time getting from there to all the places in Victoria and area that we wanted to visit.
The home and garden were accurately portrayed in the description and the photos that the owner supplied.
Upon our arrival we found a basket of delicious fresh bagels, chocolate, and organic coffee beans! What a nice touch!
All of the rooms were very clean, comfortable, and contained all we needed to feel relaxed and at home. We thoroughly enjoyed our six night stay!
We absolutely loved our experience staying in Erin's home. The description of her place was right on- it was a lovely clean family home in a great location. Our kids felt right at home, which was great considering we flew across the country with three small children. They especially loved the outdoor space and the monkey room. It was a nice quiet neighbourhood close to several great playgrounds and only a few minutes drive to downtown. Erin also left some bagels,coffee and chocolate which was wonderful after our long journey. Thanks so much for helping make our trip a memorable one!
We loved everything about the house and the neighborhood. The pictures were true to the house. We had a lovely welcome basket with bagels, coffee, and chocolate. It was very thoughtful. Erin has a beautiful garden--it's a real oasis. The best part was the monkey room. Our 2 1/2 year old twins loved playing in that room, and it's one of the main reasons we stayed here. The house is really close to downtown and to all the main attractions in the city by walk or drive--so it was a perfect fit for us. I would highly recommend this house. Perfect sanctuary and perfect location.
I am a garden designer, mum of three and wife to a wonderful man here in Victoria BC. I am also a marathon runner, yoga practitioner and organic vegetable gardener (in training!).
