Come and experience our ocean-facing getaway on the edge of the city. Enjoy complete privacy on the top floor, eat breakfast on your own balcony overlooking the sea and plan your day at one of the many sights in and around Victoria.

The Space

Beautiful room in 1912 character home fronting famous seaside Dallas Road with unobstructed views of the ocean.

Lie in your queen-size bed and watch the white caps on the sea and the Olympic mountain range beyond.

Relax in the chairs at the window and see cruise ships, kite surfers, parasailers, paddle boarders and even whales right out front.

Enjoy a bowl of hearty granola or oatmeal, fresh fruit and yogurt along with juice, tea and coffee all set up for you on a sideboard and mini-fridge in the privacy of your own room. All the ingredients are there to create a healthy breakfast whenever you choose. Or bring it and your daily fresh-baked muffins out to our balcony for an al fresco breakfast in the sunshine.

Soak in your own clawfoot tub in your private bathroom and look up at the stars through the skylight.

Walk along the beach and explore nearby Beacon Hill Park with its acres of flowers, trails and a children's petting zoo. Stroll through the vibrant Fairfield neighbourhood to Cook Street Village and choose from among half a dozen cafes, bistros and pubs to enjoy a drink and a meal. Check out the clothing stores, the book shop, the juice bar, the wine shop, the pharmacy, the bank, the grocery store, the organic produce shops, etc.

Walk a few blocks to the weekly veggie and crafts market on Moss Street.

Drive five minutes to the downtown core to discover its museums, restaurants, shops and tourist sites. Take a bus just around the corner.
Come to relax or be energized by the natural beauty of Victoria and the comforts of our home.

  • Our stay with Robyn and Brian was our last Airbnb on our vacation, and it was a great end to our trip. We stayed twice with them, on our way to the national park and back. We liked it so much the first time that we were really looking forward to stay there again. Their house is situated right at the sea and has magnificent views of Olympic mountains. Their house and our room were beautifully decorated, with much love for details. We had our own spacious bathroom, everything was spotlessly clean, the bed was very comfortable. In the morning we enjoyed the delicious breakfast with lots of fruit, granola, yogurts and huge muffins. That alone would be worth staying, but it was also a pleasure meeting Robyn and Brian. They were extremely helpful with tips of were to eat and what to do in Victoria and even for the other places on Vancouver Island we were about to visit. They have a good humor and were so much fun talking to. Whenever we visit Vancouver Island again, we'll definitely be looking forward to staying with Robyn and Brian again! Highly recommended!

  • I had a wonderful three nights with Brian and Robyn. Their house is perfectly located with glorious views across to the snowj topped Olympics, and a constant kaleidoscope of colourful activity at Clover Point- walkers, cyclists, dogs, kites, yachts and boats. You may even spot a whale! Easy walk to town, and a local village with great cafés well recommended by Brian and Robyn who were such warm and generous hosts. I hope to return one day.

  • A long-time airbnb user, I typically only book entire apartments or homes. After staying at Robyn and Brian's place, I may need to reconsider that preference. Not only was the room and amenities exactly as described, it was better. Clean. Beautiful. And VERY very thoughtfully equipped. Brian and Robyn could not have been more gracious, and seemed to know that my husband and I tend toward the private so there was just enough contact but not too much. My highest praise is that the stay felt comfortable. The views over the strait and of the mountains are unequaled, and the park/path right outside the door beyond measure. Love the dogs culture. The walk to the harbor is a good stretch of the legs, about 2 miles, but be sure to wander up Cook St. Village just around the corner. Bubby's on Cook St. is more than worth a visit for breakfast or lunch. Thank you Brian and Robyn. Victoria is a gem and so is your place.

  • Wow!! What great hosts and fantastic location! Everything was as it was described & maybe even better. Robyn & Brian were friendly, informative, attentive & respectful of our privacy. The lovely bedroom was just right - comfy bed, incredible views, lots of space to eat breakfast. Large old-world bathroom flooded with light from the skylight above. Delicious, fresh breakfast!! We loved the fresh flowers in our room. Location Location - we walked everywhere to parks & tourist attractions & downtown centre. Hope to return soon! Robyn & Brian are the best :)

  • The listing by Brian and Robyn is exactly what we got during our stay in their beautiful home. The location is fair superior to anything downtown if you are visiting Victoria for leisure. Brian hosted us and was full of knowledge upon our arrival and provided his mobile number for any further queries. We would definitely recommend this oceanfront room for anyone with a relaxed attitude.

  • My wife and I stayed at Robyn and Brian's place for 2 nights. Excellent location with a great view of the bay and the snow covered Olympic mountains. More than that both Robyn and Brian really helped us very much by telling us what we should do, where to eat and what to see etc.. The breakfast was excellent.
    They set a very high standard for airbnb. We would very highly recommend them to anyone visiting Victoria (a beautiful place indeed!!).

  • My daughter and I both feel that we really lucked out by deciding to stay with Robyn and Brian. They were extremely helpful and hospitable, providing everything that we needed. Their home is comfortable without being ostentatious and the view from our room was spectacular! All you need, including coffee, great food, nature at its best and shopping galore is right around the corner. 10 out of 10.

  • Both Robyn and Brian were excellent hosts to my parents for their visit. The view was one of the best the city has to offer, the rooms were great, the food was delicious, and the hosts were responsive and great to chat with. I would recommend them to anyone. Enjoy!

  • Robyn & Brian's space is the perfect getaway! The room, bathtub, and balcony are ideal for relaxing. And cute restaurants and shops are just a short walk away. A warm muffin and fresh fruit in the morning along with the ocean view is the best. Robyn and Brian are wonderful hosts - attentive and accommodating while also very respectful of their guest's privacy. They were quick to respond and incredibly helpful when planning the trip. I wouldn't change a thing about my stay and would highly recommend it!

  • This place is the best. I absolutely recommend this home to anyone. The house is a beautiful old house, newly renovated, clean, bright. As a guest you get the privacy of the whole top floor, beautiful bathroom with a clawfoot tup and skylight. Each morning the hosts leave fresh muffins outside your bedroom door. Combine these delicious treats with the morning view of the ocean - Paradise.
    Brian and Robyn are incredibly kind and generous, hospitable in every way, happy to help out but not intrusive in any way.
    I cannot say enough good things. Lovely place.

About
We're rooted in Victoria, B.C. and come from careers in journalism and editing. Brian is semi-retired now, while Robyn continues to work as an editor. In our spare time, we love spending time outdoors, hiking the oceanfront trails, biking through the countryside and getting together with friends and family. We've met some incredible people on our travels, shared a lot of great times and look forward to many more. We've loved our experiences as guests of airbnb hosts around the world, so we decided to become hosts ourselves. We've tried to create a space that we ourselves would look for -- a room with beautiful ocean views and all the fixings to allow for an independent, private and peaceful stay. We've enjoyed meeting our many interesting guests and welcoming them to our great city.
