About the property

This Five Bedroom Home Is Steps Away From Downtown Victoria With Free Parking!

This well-appointed home is walking distance to downtown Victoria, the Inner Harbour, Craigdarroch Castle, Victoria Art Gallery and a lovely stroll to Cook Street Village and the beach. We are central and convenient to all downtown amenities.

The house boasts 3000 sq ft of comfortable west coast living over three storeys and five bedrooms.

The main floor has the two bedrooms (queen beds) and a sunny open-concept living space with a kitchen, sun room, dining room and living room with electric fireplace and a huge skylight. This floor is ideal for visiting, relaxing, watching TV and cooking big meals. Our kitchen is stocked with everything one would need and the dining room table has many leaves to seat up to twelve people.

The top floor is the master bedroom with a king size bed plus ensuite with tub. It has two skylights and a calm and peaceful feel to it. There is a collapsible playpen available for use. It is very private from the rest of the house.

The lower floor is a 1.5 bedroom self-contained suite. It has a full kitchen and bathroom (standing shower), TV and laundry. There is a queen size bed in the main room and a double bed in the small bedroom. There is also a double pullout sofa in the living room.This small bedroom has an access door to the back patio, so perfect for smokers (no smoking inside the house, of course) or someone coming and going late at night. This lower suite has 6’4” ceilings with 6" beams (guests should be under 5'10" staying down here) and laminate flooring. It sleeps four plus pullout sofa.

There is a wonderful sun room that catches afternoon and evening sun. There are two rocking chairs plus two twin beds. This is the best room for sleeping during fair-weather months, but it isn't insulated so there isn't any heat. There are also some kids toys. If we approve you bringing your dog, this is where they'd be sleeping.

The backyard is private and is equipped with a Webber BBQ, a fire pit and a patio plus chairs for lounging. This is ideal for large gatherings and has been very well-reviewed.

We accept most pets but he/she must stay outside or in the sun room. The backyard is fenced. We have a huge school field beside us, great for walking the pooch (or the kids!). Please let us know about your pet (size, temperament, shedding) if you would like to bring them and know it's an additional non-refundable pet fee.

Wireless internet, laundry, four car driveway (five in a pinch), very clean, ideal location for those wanting to be close to all the amenities. Private backyard for sunny afternoons and relaxing. Bus stop across the street.

It is not only a great vacation spot, it can also be a comfortable temporary home for those on the road. Perfect for longer stays and entertaining.


Great space for some music, BBQ, privacy and central location.

We have a bike for your use (sometimes two bikes - please inquire).

Two bedrooms have separate entrances.

Very close to downtown Victoria.

Lots of board games (Scrabble, Twister, crib, etc)

Great family reunion home.

Huge kitchen (actually two kitchens) and well-equipped for big meals.

School playground right around the corner.

Beautiful neighborhood for walking/sightseeing.

Perfect for special events (stags, bachelorette parties).

We will consider pets, but please understand they must stay in the yard/sun room.

Please email me the dates requested and the number of guests and I will reply promptly with a quote, plus specifics.

About Megan Clark

I manage two vacation rental properties while studying at university. My parents own the house and they live up island with my sister and her family. I am in my thirties and have lived in Taiwan for eight years, Thailand for one year and here in beautiful Victoria for over fifteen years. I love this city and love recommending great day trips and more.

Megan Clark purchased this house in 2006

Why Megan Clark chose Fairfield

We decided to buy this house because of its convenient downtown location and absolute charm of the house. Once you get here, you will know what I mean...

What makes this house unique

This house, and I know from personal experience, is ideal for family gatherings. The open-concept kitchen and living areas make it fun to cook meals while still enjoying everyone's company. The sun room makes for a great location to either read the morning paper in the rocking chair, have an afternoon nap on the day bed or let the kids play in a safe room. This main floor is great for visiting yet the bedroom have very heavy doors that give privacy and block the noise.

The master bedroom upstairs is also very private and a great get-away for the parents! It has an en-suite bathroom and great skylights that accent the attic-style ceiling. Great natural light and a super comfy king-size bed.

The additional lower suite adds another two beds, full bathroom and kitchen.

Spring break trip March 2018

We stayed here during a short spring break trip from the Midwest. Great house, great location! Megan was very accommodating and worked with our schedule while in Victoria. We would definitely stay here again on our next trip to beautiful Victoria!

Cute house in great location!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with a group of girls for a hockey tournament and it was the perfect place. We had lots of space for everyone to sleep, 2 kitchens to cook in and its a short little walk into downtown for a night out!

Good for large parties.

  • 4 of 5

House has a good layout for a large group and was great for our bachelorette party. Lots of space to spread out. Meagan was there when we arrived and was able to give us great tips on places to eat and go out to.

Thanksgiving in Victoria at 1254 Fort St.,

  • 5 of 5

Megan, as host, could not have been more helpful and gracious. Her house is located right in the heart of every walkable place we wanted to see and go. We had 5 kids and 8 adults and there was a room and/'or bed for everyone. The kids loved all the "hidey holes" for hide and seek and the kitchen is well stocked. The kitchen in the basement also made it really convenient as we cooked a traditional Thanksgiving dinner while here.

Thanks Megan! We had a great time!

Great place, good location.

  • 5 of 5

I was there with 5 college friends - we have been meeting yearly for over 10 years. The house was perfect; everyone could have their own bed. The house is well stocked with everything you need - plenty of towels, plates, etc.

Megan was very helpful and immediately satisfied our wishes.

Would definitely recommend!

A perfect place for a large group. Ten of us got together for our annual book club getaway.

  • 5 of 5

The house is old and full of character. Close to everything we needed. Clean and well equipped and especially cosy with lots of space for visiting! Megan was very thorough in showing us the charming quirks that is part of an old house. We would love to come again!
