Enjoy a spacious master bedroom suite with stunning world-class views from your king size luxury bed and be awed by the beautiful sunrise/sunset from the balcony. Observe a variety of outdoor wildlife including harbor seals, otters, eagles and a host of seabirds from the balcony overlooking one of the best view of the west coast. Honeymooners and returning guests have treasured this tranquil spot. The spacious en-suite bathroom provides underfloor heating for additional comfort with a walk-in shower and soaker-tub large enough for two. Knowing the importance of a comfortable and refreshing sleep particularly when traveling and waking up feeling rested and refreshed to meet the new day with enthusiasm and eagerness is a significant part of a vacation, which is why I make it my priority that you sleep royally on a luxurious quality king size bed dressed in 100% beautiful cotton linens. The healthy giving negative irons created by the ocean will also provide you with the best sleep ever. A healthy west coast breakfast of granola, fresh fruit and yogurt or toast and toppings, coffee/tea and/or juice, will set you up for the day to explore the island and enjoy it's offerings. A second bright and spacious bedrooms is located on the main floor and houses a spectacular Western Maple custom made king size bed (which we had made for us last year), with a superb non-toxic mattress that will provide a divine sleep! This bedroom overlooks the garden with french doors opening onto the front deck. It is peacefully quiet, and has recently been completely renovated, so enjoy the feel of walking on a natural cork floor, the above bed ceiling reading lights all on dimmers and a lovely designed closet with drawers for your personal items. The bathroom dedicated to this bedroom is but a step away in the hallway. The absolute best part of this property is the marriage of comfortable, contemporary, tranquil interiors with world-class views that impacts on everyone who steps through the door. It's not something that comes across in photographs or text, the magic happens when you are immersed in it. The images of the property and its views are photographed and downloaded directly from my camera to this site, so no fancy trick photography. In actuality, many guests have told me that the house is far nicer in 'the flesh' than it shows in the photos. The property is beautiful landscaped with double wide driveway, fully fenced and gated for privacy and it is located but 10-15 min drive from downtown Victoria and 30-40 mins from Victoria airport and Swartz Bay ferry terminal. For guests who love walking/cycling, there is an abundance of lovely trails to explore such as the beautiful Galloping Goose Trail or nearby Thetis Lake, both located a few minutes from the property. For garden lovers, Hatley Castle and Gardens is a National Heritage site but 5 mins drive from the property. And of course famous Butchart Gardens is a must see destination and easily accessible from the house also. It's my priority to exceed your expectations and send you home with feel-good sentiments so that as soon as you leave, you'll want to return! More
