The space

Bordering on Vic West ... 5 minute walk to the serenity of Banfield Park backing onto the Gorge Inlet, leading to the Galloping Goose/Selkirk Trestle walking/bike trail.
The Galloping Goose trail connects to more than 55 kilometres of trails throughout Greater Victoria, including the downtown core, Inner Harbor, shopping, and tourist attractions. If walking or cycling, my home is the same distance to to core of downtown as if you were staying in James Bay area, however, instead of passing by heritage houses, Parliment Buildings, shops etc. your journey is through the Banfield park, down the Galloping Goose trail, past Point Hope Shipyard, and over the Johnston St. bridge.

Buses within one block, connecting to downtown, tourist areas, University of Victoria, and Victoria General Hospital. Bus tickets can be purchased at the corner store in front of the bus stop to town.

I throughly enjoyed our visits. More like having friends, than someone I had just met. I hope our paths cross again.

The room is delightful, and Diane is very helpful. I felt strange sharing a bathroom. I found the stairs leading to the house daunting. I was carrying the suitcases and had to maneuver the 5 concrete steps and then through the door. Not good for seniors. Could use grab-bars in th…

Diane's home was the perfect place for us to stay while visiting VIctoria. It was close enough to downtown that we could ride our bikes and it was so easy and such a pleasant ride through the park. Another day we took the bus and that was easy too. Diane was a wonderful host and…
