Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada

Our home is fully redecorated with the comforts that make it a friendly warm place to come home to each night.

Introducing

Hi, We are Rick and Vanessa, a retired professional couple, Vanessa is an ex-Aussie who came for a year in 2000 and never left!! Our renovated townhome is comfortably suited for 1 or 2 couples (no children, smokers or pets). On paper it says 3 bedrooms, but we use the 3rd bedroom as more of an office, sewing/ironing room so there is no bed in there. The main upstairs bathroom has a share door from both the main bedroom and the hallway, so it makes it way more comfortable for 2 people than 4. Centrally located on a quiet cul-de-sac in stunning Victoria, our townhouse is surrounded by bicycle and walking trails, bird nature reserve, and downtown tourist activities. Only 5 min drive to Commonwealth Recreation Centre/Pool, Shopping Centres, golf courses. We are a 2 1/2 hour drive to nearby Mt Washington ski resort (reknowned for the some of the highest snowfalls in the world), a ferry ride away from stunning Vancouver and/or Seattle or a 20 min drive to the world famous Butchart Gardens. We are right on the bus route to downtown where you find the Provincial Museum, Empress Hotel, Parliament Buildings, Whale Watching, and a flavour reminiscent of its British heritage. Victoria gets very little snow in the Winter months compared to the rest of Canada. Usually a few days here or there is our maximum and we often boast that we can golf and hike year round here in Victoria!

Other Comments

Victoria has a very mild winter climate compared to the remainder of Canada. Often referred to as the banana belt, it allows you to live close to snow fields like Mt Washington and/or Whistler without having to shovel a driveway!!!!
