About this listing
SUBLETTING FOR THE WINTER! 2 BEDROOM WHOLE HOUSE. PLEASE CONTACT ME with your ENQUIRY! (Also, please understand that the monthly Airbnb shared accommodation price is different from the price of subletting a whole furnished, 2 bedroom house).
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.
Within a 20 minute walk, or 5 minute drive to grocery stores, drug stores, health food stores, restaurants, pubs, library and recreation centres. (See Guidebook for details or ask me.)

Interaction with Guests
I like when people feel comfortable in my home.
Guest interaction seems to have a uniqueness to each guest. The Airrbnb room is set up is such a way the the guest can have allot of privacy in their room, however are also welcome to also relax in the shared areas.
I like travel stories and enjoy hearing stories of peoples worldly adventures.

Within one block is the #14 bus to the center of downtown, and University of Victoria, or the opposite direction to the Victoria General Hospital.
Bus #26 is 3 blocks away going a direct route to the University of Victoria, bypassing downtown.
I am mostly vegetarian and my preference is that guests do not cook red meat in the house.
No smoking on the property. No shoes in the house. The kitchen and bathroom are shared, please leave the common areas as clean.
Thank you for your consideration. Please enjoy your stay in Victoria.
