We spent a week at Randy's house and it was lovely. I don't think the pictures do it justice as the house is very charming. The kitchen is especially wonderful. We travelled with our three kids (ages 7, 5 and 3) - the house has a wonderful backyard (with trampoline and play structure) which was perfect for us. The house is located 2 short blocks from the charming Oak Bay village (which has everything you need) and a short walk to the ocean. Randy was very good to deal with, answered emails very quickly and left good instructions. The house was spotless when we arrived. Overall, would highly recommend this house.
