For cycling enthusiasts there are many wonderful bike trails -. the premier Galloping Goose Trail offers many miles of beautiful cycling and it is easily and safely accessed at the bottom of our street. There is a new shopping center, Eagle Creek, that is a short walk from the suite.

About Barbara Scott

Bruce & Barbara Scott are long time Victoria residents. Bruce is a real estate agent and Barbara is a professional artist. The suite is adorned with her original works on canvas.

Barbara Scott purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Barbara Scott chose Vancouver Island

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

Guestbook comments from the owner

Barb & Bruce,

What a great suite you have here! This was our first trip to Victoria and we have enjoyed our relaxing vacation. All the comforts of home while away.

Renting Scooters and traveling around town was one of our favorite activities.

Thanks for the great stay!

Great Paridise Location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfect, Barb and Bruce made us feel welcome. Nothing was too much trouble. Beautiful setting with well maintained gardens on a peaceful inlet where one can sit and enjoy the beauty. A beautiful rental in an extremely quiet neighborhood. A place to come back to.

. The rental is located about a 15 min drive from downtown or various hiking trails. We would recommend this accommodation to anyone.

Wonderful Winter Wonderland

  • 5 of 5

We once again enjoyed the comfort, convenience and beauty of your lovely suite and yard this week. Despite the "out of the ordinary" heavy snow, we enjoyed the amazing scenery from and around your yard, as well as the attractive, very well outfitted and cozy apartment. All the trees, the ocean inlet and the clear starry nights were beautiful. Thanks for your hospitality and thoughtfulness. You think of everything that a guest would appreciate!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Had such a wonderful time at their property. Barbara and Bruce are wonderful hosts with the most stunning house in the neighbourhood. The pictures are great but don't do the place justice. Hard to capture that amount of beauty. My husband and I stayed there over Christmas. They made the place very warm and welcoming. They left us a plate of yummy homemade Christmas baking and even set up a little Christmas tree and left a gift under it for us. So unbelievably sweet! We would HIGHLY recommend their place to anyone looking to stay in Victoria. Couldn't have asked for more!

Thank you Barb for the great stay we had in your vacation apartment. Everything was as shown on HomeAway. Your attention to making your place and surrounding grounds beautiful and relaxing is truly commendable. Everything was as shown in the pictures. You were truly welcoming and helpful with all of our questions and needs.

This was a great home away from home base for us. It was relatively easy to find ( a GPS helps ) initially and great to come back to after a day of exploring. The stairs to the apartment helped to get in some exercise! We would definitely use your place and hospitality again.

People, the pictures speak for themselves!!
