Beautiful new 1 bedroom waterfront carriage house with gorgeous views of the ocean waters of Portage Inlet. The suite has a romantic, beachy feel & comfortably fits 2.
This is a magical place - . everyone who comes here, says so. The suite is located above the garage, providing tranquil inlet water views. It is a gorgeous 1/3 acre waterfront retreat, located on the Portage Inlet which is part of the Gorge Waterway and connects to the Inner & Upper Harbors of downtown Victoria, located on beautiful Vancouver Island. It is quiet, private and peaceful. Enjoy the stunning gardens which have been featured in major BC newspapers, waterfront patios, dock and even launch a kayak if you choose.(Kayak rental available for reasonable rates on site). Feed the Swans, watch the Blue Heron, Eagles, Otters, Seals, Canada Geese, Ducks and more. Wildlife is abundant as this area is a bird sanctuary.
There are many golf courses in the area, with the closest public one, just minutes away, is gorgeous Highland Pacific Golf Course, and the internationally famous Bear Mountain golf resort with two Jack Nicklaus designed 18 hole courses is nearby also.
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.
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
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.
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
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!
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!!
The apartment is pleasant and is handy to downtown, the butchart gardens , and the galloping goose trail. The property has lovely gardens and there are various patio areas in which you can relax, watch kayakers and swans
passing by. I enjoyed my time here.
The apartment was perfect and Barb and Bruce made us feel so welcome. Nothing was too much trouble and thsre was agood guide to everthing we might need close by.
Good shopping centre just over the highway for food and liquor, also an excellent pub restaurant about a mile away. We would recommend this accomodation to anyone.
What a pity that road signs are so sparse in B.C as it makes it so difficult for a tourist to drive around.
This place is fantastic! Beautiful setting with well maintained gardens on a peaceful inlet.. The suite itself is impeccably clean and has everything one would need for a short-term or long-term stay. The bed is super comfortable and it is the best shower that we have had on our six weeks on the road.
The rental is located about 5 miles from downtown allowing for easy access to a wonderful variety of activities, walks, restaurants, shopping and entertainment in the downtown area. After a busy day exploring Vancouver Island, this beautiful little rental is a relaxing home away from home to come back to.
As for the hosts, they are friendly, accommodating and accessible. Nicest people! You could not find a better rental.
This place is perfect in every way!!
Barbara and Bruce are a lovely couple, very helpful in very way. Rental was all we expected. Enjoyed our stay, and recommend it to everyone. Bill and Sue
