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!

Amazing Property

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing property on the gorge in Victoria. We would highly recommend this spot for your stay in Victoria. The suite is very well set up with a private entrance and separate bedroom. A small kitchen that you can use for all your meals if you wanted. The living room is very comfortable for relaxing. The jewel of this property is the grounds. They are truly amazing with sitting areas to take in the water and relax with a book or just stroll through the grounds. It was definitely a treat to stay at.

Thank you for your hospitality.

Gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

Such a relaxing cute place on the water. The pictures show it all. We had complete comfort and the owners Barbara and Bruce are very lovely! Also the location was the best near all that we wanted to see. 4 Mile Pub the best for food! We would love to visit again.

Thanks

Five star piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful suite, property, and great location!! We had a fabulous two weeks at Barb and Bruce's. The suite was very spacious for the two of us, very clean and very bright with big windows. Many nice touches made us feel right at home. Barb was very helpful and accommodating to anything we asked. The suite was very quiet, comfortable, and had everything we needed for our stay. The property is breathtaking!! Many spots to sit and relax, and soak up the gorgeous view!! We enjoyed watching the many birds of the area, and even spotted a seal!! The pictures of the suite and property are an exact representation, although they are even better in real life!! Parking was great, and the neighbourhood is very nice and quiet, and very accessible for driving around the city and island. We would highly recommend this place to our friends and family. We would definitely book this place again!! Thanks to Barb and Bruce for making our vacation so wonderful, Debbie and Darin

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.
