About This Listing
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.
Guests will enjoy their own wing -- which includes a fridge, a kettle, a coffee press and coffee maker -- and have access to a top-floor balcony.
The home's kitchen and other living areas are for the sole use of the owners.
One or both of us welcome our guests with a tour and a talk about what to see and do in Victoria. We are also available for any concerns or questions but otherwise respect the guests' desire for privacy.
There is off-street parking at the house, and bus stops nearby. It is only a 25-minute walk along the ocean and through Beacon Hill Park to reach downtown.
Please ensure your airbnb profile includes a photo and a description about yourself so we recognize you when you come to the front door and we can make sure we're all a good fit. Thank you!
A public bus stops are within a block of the house, and there are many restaurants and shops within a 10- to 15-minute stroll along the ocean.
We are a working couple, so we would appreciate a quiet house after 11 p.m.
There is no TV available.
No smoking on the property.
Please ensure your airbnb profile includes a photo and a description about yourself. Thank you!
Staying here was like staying at a real B & B. Hosts were accommodating to our every need, friendly, and informative. Even offered us a ride. The bedding and linings were what one would expect from an exclusive hotel.
Continental breakfast included hot muffins and more fruit than we could eat. The breakfast experience was a $35 value in itself.
Splendid view of the water from the bedroom and private study.
Will look to stay here on our next Victoria trip.
Thank you both for making our visit s comfortable and fun. The view from the room is superb, the bed so comfortable I didn't want to get up and the way you provide such a lovely breakfast array of choices, all where we can sit happily gazing out of our room, was wonderful.
We also thank you for making us feel so welcome and giving us your time whether we asked questions or chatted about far ranging issues. In short it really was the perfect balance of privacy, yet friendliness, combined with a wonderful room and home, not to mention the location right on the water. Thanks again
Robyn and Brian were amazing. They were so welcoming and warm and their communication was awesome. They had so many great ideas about things to do in and around Victoria. And the house was INCREDIBLE! Our room was like a magical fairyland- the whole upstairs was just ours so there was so much privacy, and there was no expense spared. An incredible breakfast, our own coffee bar, a BEAUTIFUL view of the mountains. It was seriously the most perfect experience, and I couldn't imagine anything that could be better. Even the walk from downtown- about 20 minutes- was through the most beautiful park! This is the first time that I have ever said that I will definitely be back to that space. Thanks so much to Robyn & Brian for making it such a magical weekend...
Robin and Brian have a beautiful house with one of the most spectacular outlooks you could imagine. The large bedroom window faces the ocean and beyond that, Washington's Olympic Mountains. Their hospitality is second to none. We had just checked out of a five star hotel the day before and this was even better. The bed is wonderful, the bathroom is private, relaxing and we'll stocked with toiletries just incase you forgot. Each morning we enjoyed homemade granola, fresh fruit and Robin's amazing muffins. You will not regret checking into this outstanding bnb
Thank you Brian and Robyn for the most relaxing three days. A beautiful ocean view, perfect sunny weather, immaculate room, delicious home made breakfast delivered outside your door each morning. I loved sitting in the balcony in the morning overlooking the ocean and enjoying the fresh air. Gracious and kind hosts with a beautiful home and garden. thank you. :)
About the Host, Robyn And Brian
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.
