About Michelle Shevkenek
Travel has always been a shared passion for Troy and me. We have lived in Seoul and Shanghai, and we have travelled extensively in Asia. Here in Canada we have had the opportunity to live in Toronto, Calgary, and White Rock, but we are now happily ensconced in Victoria BC. Victoria has so much to offer - coastal waters, lakes, rivers, and mountains - a nature-lover's paradise. One of our favourite things to do is explore the many natural wonders of our area with our children and dogs, and discover new and interesting culinary treats.
Michelle Shevkenek purchased this House in 2017
Why Michelle Shevkenek chose Victoria
Our dream has always been to live in a rural setting away from the hubbub close to nature. We chose our property because of its beauty and potential but also because of its convenience - we are only 15-20 minutes from downtown, 15 minutes to the airport and 20 minutes to the ferry. We are surrounded by horse farms, wineries and acreages.
What makes this House unique
Our beautiful apartment offers a lovely luxurious rural retreat. You will love the quiet and serenity of the property and enjoy the gorgeous views of winding country roads, idyllic horse farms, and lush forests. The beautiful kitchen is fully equipped to prepare your meals and the beds are comfortable and inviting.

We loved staying here! It was the perfect size for our family of 6. It was in a great location and centrally located to all the places we wanted to visit. We would definitely stay here again!
Wish I could stay longer
Seamless, quite homey place, warm floors on a cool evening. We loved it, looking forward to coming longer next time.
What a great property we found here. Clean, spacious, quiet, all the comforts travelers need, great location, outstanding locally grown food very close, and fantastic hosts!
Thank you greatly!
Loved this little, cozy cottage for our weekend getaway! It was the perfect place for our family to retreat to after a full day. It's very comfortable, has a well stocked kitchen for cooking meals (loved the Miele appliances!) and has a wonderful location in the country. So peaceful and quiet! Michelle, the owner was extremely helpful during our stay, providing recommendations and quick answers to our questions. We had a wonderful time and would love to come back!
Cozy, comfortable hideaway
We loved staying here for our anniversary getaway!!! It was charming, quiet, clean, and comfortable. We loved that it was tucked back against the trees in a cute wooded neighborhood. We loved the location...a short drive to the Butchart Gardens and beautiful hiking spots, 15 to 20 mins to Victoria, ziplining, and other activities we went to. We appreciated so much the list of restaurants and things to see and do left by owner. Because of her advice we enjoyed many delicious meals and enjoyed several hikes we would not have known about. She was very kind and helpful! I would definitely recommend staying here!
A Great Rural Retreat close to Victoria
A family of 2 adults and 3 kids stayed 4 nights during spring break. This property was a great place to wind down after busy days exploring Butterfly World, The Royal BC Museum and local parks. This kids loved exploring the large property and watching the eagles and turkey vultures flying over and listening to the tree frog chorus on an evening. The neighbours were very friendly and even invited the kids to meet a couple of horses on an adjacent property. The house was very clean and new and we would come back again next time we are in Victoria. The owners provided us with some very useful information and responded very quickly to any emails. Thanks Michelle you were a great host.
