Beautiful Oak Bay home is truly BEAUTIFUL
Sally and Stu were very warm and welcoming. Their house and yard are charming. We ate dinner outside and found it delightful. The house had easy access. Communication was great. We had a lot of fun and got good rest. Oak Bay and Victoria are wonderful. I recommend staying here to all travelers. Thank you.
Such a great base of operations that we spent a lot of time at "home!"
This was a very pleasant, welcoming place to stay; we recommend it highly. Beautiful art; sunny, colorful, comfortable rooms; inviting multi-deck back yard with flowers and hot tub; gracious hosts. Very different from typical VRBO rentals in which we hope to be able to find extra towels and kitchen basics, etc. We ended every evening in the hot tub (very generous size for our 4-person group), admiring the moon and stars overhead. Everything worked beautifully, from the fully-equipped kitchen to the TV/internet setup, gas grill, etc. Conveniently located for sightseeing and nice neighborhood walks to the shore. We enjoyed our time in Victoria and felt truly at home. Would love to return someday.
Gorgeous back garden and deck for having morning coffee .
Friendly home with lots of personality
This centrally-located house is definitely a character home with an inviting atmosphere. The owners are very friendly and have been living in the home for 30 years and taken good care of the property. The downstairs have been remodelled, however the upstairs floor boards creaked, which caused a few restless nights for our younger kids not used to these types of noises. However, the house itself was beautiful and easily accessible. All amenities were provided and available in the house which made it very convenient. The local deli (DemiTasse) serves fantastic coffee and food and is walking distance from the home.
Home, sweet home
Delightful space for a family gathering. Bright, spacious, comfortable and clean -- with everything one needs from dishes to dishwasher and a kitchen to cluster in. The hot tub, the backyard and the deck made outdoor socializing possible and memorable. When the weather chased us inside, there was room for all to make music and share laughter without disturbing the neighbors. Convenient to the beach, the park, and Oak Bay Village. Three day stay whizzed by much too quickly and we'd return in a heartbeat.
