Cosy victorian style house. A very nice country trail is just 10 minutes' driving away. What's more, the owner gives a lot of personal touches in the house that makes us feels like home.
We can't say enough about how perfect Lorna's lovely home proved to be for our family reunion! Not only beautiful, spacious and clean, the wonderful floor plan allows for both privacy as well as gatherings, either in the fabulous gourmet kitchen or sunken tv room, or living room. The linens, sheets, and bedding were all super too.
We loved lounging on the outdoor patio, enjoying the gardens and sparkling weather of Brentwood Bay. We were thrilled to find a market within walking distance that offered a surprising array of organic and/or local produce. Playgrounds, a library and Brentwood Bay itself with picturesque boats in the harbour are so close, yet the neighborhood is serene and tucked away. Coffee shops and restaurants are nearby, not to mention Butchart Gardens and Butterfly Gardens, and wineries too. We took the Mill Bay Ferry to visit beautiful Cowichan Valley, or drove down to Victoria, or up to Sydney, an approx 15/20 minute drive.
Given our extended family included elderly and young children, we couldn't be happier how Lorna's home accomodated our every need. Lorna's hospitality topped it all off; she was quick to respond to any questions/help. Thank you, Lorna! We hope to come back again someday.

Thank you so much for the use of your home!
It was so quiet and peaceful, no noise from neighbours.
We saw lizards, squirrels and racoons.
And the house felt just like home, clean and spacious, perfect for spending time with my family and having alone time as well.
This house is located pretty much right next to butterfly garden and buchard garden, which we thought was very convenient. We were very satisfied with how clean, spacious, and beautiful this house was. Would definitely stay again!!

We drove from California and our cousins/aunt and hubbies came over to stay.
Lorna's home was stunning. It
Was perfect for everything we needed. Each night we gathered for family dinner and games around the large dining table. The kitchen was perfect for learning cooks (college age daughter) and experienced chefs alike. Mornings were filled with making plans for the day around the breakfast table. Deer cake right up to the yard and actually laid down while we bbq'd. There is a very small but nice grocery within 2 minutes, wine tasting and cider tasting all within 15 minutes.
We found the house immaculate and easy to make
Ourselves at home in. Lorna was quick to reply to emails and answer questions we had. In all honesty, this was one of the most special vacations we have ever had and the home was a big reason. One last plus is it was out of The Victoria area but only about a 15 minutes drive away. We felt like this also allowed us to experience more "residential" life.
Great place, great location.the house was perfect for families. There is also an amazing antiques shop down the road!!
