About this listing
FREE MOUNTAIN BIKES FOR GUESTS' USE.
Lovely, inviting, and very private, our chalet is a traveler's dream. We offer location, comfort, tranquility, and a free-standing cottage for the price of a hotel room. We are situated two blocks from the attractions at Fisherman's Wharf, a ten minute walk to downtown and the USA ferry terminals, and a fifteen minute walk to the local/long distance bus stations. There is always lots of free on-street parking on our street. The historic James Bay neighbourhood shopping centre, with its myriad coffee shops, book and curio stores, and 24 hour grocery store, is also a five minute walk. The University of Victoria and Camosun College are a quick and easy bus or bike ride away.
Sunny and bright, the chalet features: 16 foot vaulted ceilings, oak floors, skylights, french doors opening out onto a large south-facing deck, kitchenette suitable for light cooking (convection oven, microwave, rice cooker, slow cooker, toaster, coffee maker, outdoor barbecue on request),separate private bedroom as well as sleeping loft. The sleeping loft has a futon mattress, while the living room couch folds into a double bed., We also offer storage for bicycles on site. Wireless internet is provided as well as a fact screen tv dvd player and a reasonable selection of movies.
Michael and Yuki (the hosts) live next door and can offer local tips on VIctoria along with restaurant/entertainment suggestions.
Please send us an enquiry even if it looks like the chalet is booked! Quite often we have cancellations or alterations that don't make it to the calendar before you do!
Guests have free mountain bike use, use of common driveway for loading and unloading. We happily welcome children traveling with parents to use our trampoline (we live next door) and assorted outdoor toys, balls and bats (not the cave-dwelling kind!!).
Interaction with Guests
While we love to share our travel experiences with guests, we also understand that you are not in Victoria to visit US!.. We are always available for a chat, coffee, or for local area information, but will never encroach on your space. Whether for a day or a month, the chalet is YOUR home, and we will respect it as such.
No smoking please, and shoes off inside.... VERY IMPORTANT... DO NOT LOCK DOOR WHEN CHECKING OUT.. PLEASE LEAVE KEY ON KITCHEN TABLE.
