“comfortable stay”
Reviewed March 28, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

This was my fourth vacation rental in BC. Two were apartments and this and one other were houses. Trish's house was a very sweet and sunny gramma-style house which had most everything a person would need to live independently for almost any length of time. The full kitchen and laundry, large TV and quick wi-fi, comfortable bed and lots of storage made things very easy. James Bay is a great neighborhood and off-street parking made it sure that I always had a convenient spot, with ready access to the rest of the area as well. I definitely enjoyed my time there, especially the feeling of safety and quiet.

I had very little contact with Trish beyond email about checking in and checking out, both of which arrived the day before I traveled. She gave me good restaurant recommendations and warned me about construction in front of the house just in time, too. Otherwise, I was a quiet guest and appreciated the opportunity to be in retreat. Yard service on Monday was the only surprise.

Hello Pat,
Thank you for your review. I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at our little house in James Bay. It is a quiet area and very nice for an easy get-away. Construction on the street in front should be over in mid April. Perhaps we will have the opportunity to host you again!

“Cozy, convenient and comfortable!”
Reviewed January 2, 2018 for a stay in December 2017

Close to 24hour grocery store, walk to ocean side trails, and short drive downtown - exactly what we needed. We were super happy with our choice of accommodations while in Victoria. Thank you Trish!

“What a great to stay here ”
Reviewed August 9, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

This home was sunny and quaint and close to the water. There is a somewhat stocked kitchen, comfortable beds, and Trish came immediately when we needed something. The neighbors were all nice as well! The horse drawn carriages come down the street and it was perfect to watch them in the evening as we ate dinner in. I would stay here again in an instant! We had adults and never felt on top of each other.

“Great place to come home to”
Reviewed July 20, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

After a week of traveling and hotel stays, this little house near the water, Beacon Hill and the inner harbor was a wonderful find. The bed was comfy, the shower was good, we were able to do laundry and the Wi-Fi was fast. It was a short walk to the grocery store and the owner recommended some nearby restaurants and had brochures and travel guides on the living room. We preferred walking, but public transit is nearby.

The owner was also accomodating when I had messed up the dates.

Not fancy, but very comfortable. If you are headed to Victoria, see if it's available.

“Cozy, Comfortable and Convenient”
Reviewed May 17, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

A very nice house in a beautiful and quiet neighborhood. A great location only a few blocks from a huge park with a waterfront paved walking trail. Walk through this historic area to downtown in 15 to 20 minutes or to a grocery store and Starbucks only 10 minutes away. The cherry trees and tulips were in bloom during our stay. Awesome!! Really enjoyed the house, neighborhood and the beautiful gardens of the homes along our walks.

“Comfy, cozy”
Reviewed October 26, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We enjoyed a relaxing, pleasant, 6-day stay in this home. So close to cafes, interesting shops, decadent restaurants and an easy 2-minute walk to the grocery store; it made all our decisions easy. The kitchen was stocked with all the necessities for meal prep and the bedrooms were comfortable. I would stay here again on future trips to Victoria.

“Great house in a perfect location”
Reviewed September 21, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

person found this review helpful

We stayed for two weeks with our young children and were impressed with the comfort of the house. It has everything for cooking with extras like spices, and we loved that there was already a high chair and things like shampoo and laundry soap. The only thing I would recommend to the owners (and why I gave it 4 stars) is to invest in a king bed for the master (something we have at home and really want when travelling...and a luxury for those who don't) as it is a big enough room, and perhaps a couple more bath towels. We enjoyed our stay and will be definitely be back as Victoria has always been our favorite place to visit!
