A great retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Love this retreat. Very clean, tastefully decorated and attention to detail. It is walking distance to most everything. Quaint village nearby with markets and cafes.

Owners were very responsive to our needs.

Beautiful Property in Convenient Location

  • 5 of 5

Kelly (the owner) has created a beautiful house that was perfect for our visit. There were six of us (family with two kids plus grandparents) visiting Victoria. The house is in a quiet neighborhood near restaurants with downtown accessible with an easy walk. The three bedrooms are very nice with a beautiful master bathroom and a modern kitchen downstairs. The backyard garden is a real gem with humming birds making occasional visits during breakfast. We have no complaints and would have happily stayed longer.

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of renting Cook Street Village Retreat in Victoria, BC for five days over the Canada Day (July 1st) holiday and had a great time. Arriving from Seattle via the Victoria Clipper, our family of six ( my wife and I plus our oldest son and his family) very much enjoyed our stay in this well equipped, upgraded, extremely comfortable home. Located a short walk from the downtown/harbor as well as Cook Street itself with its many local restaurants, shops, small markets and other businesses, it was the perfect location for us. Situated in a quiet neighborhood, the house was spotless when we arrived and it was easy to feel comfortable from the moment we stepped inside. With Beacon Hill Park a block away and the waterfront just beyond, it could not be any more ideally located. Kelly, the owner, was most helpful in making suggestions for sightseeing as well as shopping for groceries, and other things not to be missed. We can't wait to plan a return trip back in order to stay in this ideal setting and enjoy all that Victoria and Vancouver Island has to offer!

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! Kelly was just a text message away to help when we needed it. Kids loved the bunk beds! House was very clean, beds were comfortable and it had all the amenities we needed. We enjoyed Beacon Hill Park and seeing the Peacocks. Petting Zoo was a highlight for our little ones. Short walk to downtown Victoria. If you need advice on where to go or what to do, ASK KELLY. Hopefully we can return someday and stay again! Thanks again for your hospitality and offering your lovely home to us.
