Why Barbara Scott chose View Royal
We are only the 2nd owners of this 50's house that we completely renovated and added to. The property is private and feels like an acreage, yet is only minutes to downtown Victoria. We have created lush beautiful gardens, and beautiful seaside sanctuary. We love the peace & quiet here. This is a magical place and has its own spirit about it. Everyone who comes here is captivated by it.
What makes this Apartment unique
This is usable waterfront. At the bottom of the garden, there is a private dock to launch a boat or kayak or to float on an inflatable mattress. This property while so private and feels like you are in a different world is only minutes to downtown Victoria and all it has to offer. Many bike trails, golf courses, shopping & restaurants are very nearby

Calm Curated Comfort
Our third stay and we continue to be amazed at the peaceful green waterfront...lovely in all seasons. The compact suite is carefully curated for comfort and aesthetic enjoyment. We love View Royal with access to many excellent natural areas, hiking, historic exploration and other fun. Short ride to Victoria city centre and many interesting neighborhoods. We hiked Francis King park & explored Old Town/ LoJo. Lots to do or relax & enjoy!
Thank you for staying with us for the 3rd time. So happy you enjoy your visits. Best wishes, Barb & Bruce
Charming, warm facility located in a scenic space
As the facility had been originally prepared for a loved one, it reflected a considerable amount of care, love and charm in the spacious, well-kept facility. The immaculate gardens situated by the local lake, certainly added to a pleasant experience when needed a moment of outdoor relaxation on the grounds.
The comfortable beds, updated kitchen, baseboard heaters and bathroom and original artwork gave the daily living space provided a quality way-of-life while we toured the area for a week. The tech aspect of the TV and video equipment had a couple of issues, however, the overall performance was adequate.
The host and hostess added their personal touch and made us feel very welcome! We would certainly consider this wonderful space for a future trip...
Very nice definite stay again
Barbara is a great host property is gorgeous. Looking for future stay.
We had a wonderful time ...the suite was perfect and very well appointed with everything we needed. The gardens are beautiful; Barbara an Bruce invited us to enjoy the gardens and the water front...and we did ! The location is great... 2 minutes to the highway and on your way to explore..Victoria and area...
We stayed 3 nights in Sept. 2017. This location is perfect for accessing Victoria and the lower Island communities. The setting on the Inlet is beautiful and peaceful, just as the pictures indicate. The accommodation is ideal for 2 people, quiet, roomy and fully self-contained complete with kitchen and laundry facilities. It was great to chat with the hosts Bruce & Barbara. We really appreciated Bruce's tips on restaurants and local sights. Thanks again and we'll surely recommend your place to friends and family.
Easy walking distance to shopping, restaurants, pubs, hospital, cycling & hiking trails. Drive 10 minutes to downtown Victoria.
