Private Family Home and Garden

House - Entire home/apt · Cedar Hill Rd, Victoria, BC V8T 3G9, Canada

The Space

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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

  • What an extraordinary place to stay for a family, or anyone. The house is so clean and beautifully set-up for entertaining, for relaxing, for family moments. The kitchen is a dream. The garden is private and charming and EDIBLE. The beds are very comfortable and every amenity is at your fingertips. The highlight is the "monkey room". The kids loved the climbing wall and the cozy TV watching wall to wall pillows. The house is so close to the major bus routes yet on a lovely quiet residential street. The price is right and Erin was so very accommodating and gracious. I would most definitely return to this beautiful oasis.

    Response from Erin:

    Unfortunately we had a dishwasher leak and ruin our floors a few days before the reservation--the restoration company had to take up the floor in the kitchen, so we were forced to cancel the reservation. The damage has since been repaired and we now have a gorgeous new wood floor.

  • This is an ideal setting for folks traveling with young children. My 3-year-old granddaughter thoroughly enjoyed all the toys and books she could use while we were there. The bus stop is a convenient two blocks away, so it was very easy to take the bus into downtown and to make connections to places we wanted to go. Erin was wonderful to work with - we really appreciated her flexibility for check in and check out times, so that my granddaughter could nap. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again and would highly recommend this place to others.

    Thanks so much Pamela!

  • We stayed at Erin's home for three nights. It is a beautiful, clean, comfortable house with quiet garden and we found everything we needed there. Our kids enjoyed very much the climbing wall in the garage. When we go again to Victoria we would be happy to stay there again.

  • We had a wonderful stay with Erin. It is an ideal place to stay with young children for a home away from home holiday. Only wish we could have stayed longer. We hope to return again.

  • Erin is a wonderful host who shared her beautiful home with my family. Her house was clean, tastefully decorated with a well stocked kitchen. Our stay in Victoria would not have been the same without feeling at home like we did in Erin's house.

  • We had a wonderful stay in Erin's gorgeous home! The house is spacious and extremely clean. I would absolutely recommend staying here.
    Erin is wonderful to communicate with and a very thoughtful host.

  • We are a family of five with three kids ages 20, 11 and 8. We had a great time at Erin's place. The kids were in heaven and my 8 year old actually cried when we were leaving the home. It is a beautiful place, very nicely decorated and very clean. It absolutely feels like home and we were very comfortable staying there.

    We would highly recommend this place to anyone who wants a home away from home. The location is very convenient as well since downtown is only 7 minutes drive away. The kids play area is a gem. They didn't want to go out anywhere as they were really having fun.

    Erin was always very easy to reach and very prompt in her responses. I personally loved her books collection and would have loved to stay longer but we had to leave for Tofino.

    There is so much natural light in the house, it is very pleasing to just sit there and enjoy a good book. Thank you very much Erin!!!

  • We had a wonderful stay in Erin's home. It was in a perfect location--very close drive to neighborhood restaurants, bakeries, and markets. And it was a very close drive to Victoria's downtown attractions. Our daughter loved playing in the play room and all of us loved sitting in the beautiful back yard. We also greatly appreciated that Erin left us coffee and home-made granola. We would definitely recommend this place for families who want to enjoy Victoria's attractions while staying in a lovely, local neighborhood.
