Details below :

From Avalon you can stroll Beacon Hill Park -only 4 houses away, storm watch overlooking the beaches only ten minutes walk away or wander downtown- again,only a ten minute walk away. None of the noise but all of the proximity. Sample the gourmet treats in Cook Street Village with it's bakeries, wood fired pizzerias and cozy coffee shops. Workout in the mornings at home on the deck or at nearby facilities and spend your afternoons touring the Royal Museum,shops, Victoria art galleries and more . Ride the horse drawn tours of this unique neighborhood.At night you can walk to the Royal theater for symphony or ballet.

Our home is located on a quiet cul-de-sac in unique Heritage zone, across from the famous James Bay Inn pub, Thrifty's grocery store, sports facilities and many local bus routes.

Only 4 houses to the airport shuttle and very close to heliport, float plane and Cruise Line port of call at Augden Point.

You'll find everything you'll need is supplied in mint condition with up-to-date modern appliances.

UPSTAIRS: Romantic master suite is large and unique with fireplace and new king bed.

It is cool in the summer and has both blinds and curtains for a quiet and blackout effect if needed.

En suite Spa: tub has a chroma therapy jet tub, shower is 7 feet long and fireplace with room for the massage table beside the tub and near the fireplace which warms the whole ensuite .

There is a separate room for toilet and another two separate areas for sink and make-up

The reading area outside the bedroom with skylight doubles as a luxurious laundry folding area as it is adjacent to washer and dryer conveniently located near the bedroom.

The outdoor deck has been glass enclosed and is under an awning.

It has a large enough floor space for exercise -stationary bike , ball, weights and yoga mat are provided plus there is a large sofa overlooking the garden for morning coffee or afternoon tea in the trees.

The second bedroom on the lower level with African theme is away from the master and has it's own 3 piece ensuite.


The kitchen has everything including room for 6 seated around range and a bar height table with chairs fro two more.

The very special teak dining table is in the living area with a view of the garden and not the kitchen, which is better for more formal dining.

Our home is charming and uniquely decorated!

It's the best place to stay if you want to be downtown, in a quiet elegant fun space.

PEACEFUL and SECLUDED GARDEN to enjoy as well.


References required and sorry no pets and no smokers on site.

Rent is listed in US dollars but there is a conversion tab in the rates section for Canadians

Rent includes all utilities and taxes and we will clarify damage deposit and payment with the lease discussion as we do not go thru VRBO bur etransfers or wire from US

I prefer one long term renter for my ski season ideally November or December to end March. Minimum rental term is two weeks.

Summer rates are higher than winter and one month is the minimum term.

Jim is my property manager and is nearby in Victoria for any issues that may arise while you are here or if i am not available by phone nor email re rental.

Keywords: Modern, unique, private multi-level with large garden-featured in design magazine. Consistently rated 5 star by guests .

thx for your interest!

Additional information about rental rates

Refundable Damage Deposit C$1,500

references required
If you are Canadian - note that the posted rates are in USDollars
Jim or I will clarify the rates and request e transfer as method of payment
Americans cannot e transfer unfortunatley
A wire transfer in USD to my USD account is the easiest but note the damage deposit may not be the same on return depending on exchange rate fluctuations
eg if $1000 canadian is $800 american when you send it we will return $1000 canadian equivalent at the end of the term the unlikely event our dollar goes up, you will get less than $800 USD back ..this is standard practice thx
