About Tim Scaife

We fell in love with Victoria 16 years ago and have lived here ever since. We wake up every day and can't believe we are lucky enough to live in this beautiful place. We're both environmental professionals and when not working spend our time paddling, surfing, hiking, or just having gourmet coffee and people watching at one of the many local cafes. We live in the main house just above the suite.

Tim Scaife purchased this house in 2009

Why Tim Scaife chose Fairfield

We bought this home because, quite simply, it was our dream house. We love its unique character, but most of all, its location. You can't beat being right by the beach and beautiful parks, but still just a short stroll from all the amenities and charm of Cook St Village. We always dreamed of raising a family in this neighborhood and are so grateful to be here.

What makes this house unique

Amazing location by the beach, the park, and all amenities. The house is also an incredibly unique character home with gorgeous features; featured in the City's book on heritage homes. Its an amazingly friendly area with great neighbors of all ages.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This needs to be renamed 'Gem on the Beach'. The suite is new, built with 'green' materials. It's absolutely lovely! The location is fabulous with easy access to the water, local interesting shopping areas and close enough to downtown. (If you really want to go there.) Jordan is a very kind and accommodating host.

Awesome location, great place

  • 5 of 5

The location couldn't be more beautiful literally steps away from the ocean. Suite was really nice - kitchen was well equipped, and everything was really clean. Perfect for our weekend getaway.

Great Location and Suite

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay when you do not want to be right downtown. it is a 30 second walk to the ocean and great views. Lots of places to walk along the shore as well as asphalt paths. Close to walk to places to eat (pizza, pub, dine) as well as the coffee shops on Cook Street. The suite is perfect for 2 people with a separate bedroom and cozy for 3 or 4 (sofa bed in living room). Kitchen has everything you need and there is a BBQ outside. 2 minute walk to Beacon Hill Park. Short drive to downtown and lots to see there. Host communication is excellent and no problems. Would certainly book again for our next visit.

Great location :)

  • 4 of 5

Loved our stay and the location was amazing. Only complaints are the low ceiling height. My husband and are quite tall and we struggled a bit with the low ceilings. Also, the pull out couch is...not good. The main bed was really comfy but when we needed to use the pull out, it was not a good sleep! As long as you don't need to use the pull out couch, great place to stay. Loved all the amenities provided.

We had never traveled to BC before. What a wonderful experience! Our stay in the little basement apartment was everything we needed: clean, comfortable, an easy walk to Beacon Hill Park, Cook Street Village for shopping and dining, easy access to public transportation (bus) to the Royal BC Museum and Government Street/Market Square, and plenty of parking for our rental car to get us to points beyond (the extraordinary Butchart Gardens, for example). But what is OUTSTANDING about this place is that there is a SPECTACULAR view--literally right across Dallas Street--of the beach-side park, the cliff down to the rocky beach and the Strait of Georgia (and the majestic vista of Olympic [US] National Park behind it. What a view to come home to! Breathtaking! Thanks for the stay. We hope to return in the not-too-distant future!

Great location and hospitality once again

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time with our twin 4-year-olds in this suite. Close to the ocean, walking trails, Cook St., and Beacon Park, we had a wonderful time. Suite is basic, safe, and had everything we needed. Manager was very quick and responsive. I not only recommend this suite, but we hope to visit again soon.

Nearest Beach
Dallas Rd
Car: not necessary

We're located ON sought after Dallas Rd across the street from one of the most beautiful beaches in the area & across the water from the snow capped olympic mountains. Bicycle, paddle board, or just stroll on the beach. While nature is just out the door we are just steps from the famous Beacon Hill Park, an urban oasis with beautiful gardens, ponds, activities, water parks, a petting zoo, and more. Amazing fishing and some of the best cold water diving in the world are just on the other side of the park. Its a very family friendly area with lots of kids parks close by - including the new Cook St playground complete with zip line and awesome new equipment. There is even outdoor exercise equipment for adults.

Cook St Village is a short stroll away, complete with multiple coffee shops, restaurants, grocery stores, pharmacy, a butcher, bank, pub, liquor store, and more. The City's best pizza, best coffee, and best pub are all here. While the suite is in a quiet residential neighborhood downtown is just over 1mile away.

While visiting Victoria there is tons to see and do. An incredible museum, undersea gardens, the empress hotel, heritage architecture, and all here. The famous Butchart Gardens and countless beaches, hiking trails, and parks are in driving distance. 1-2hrs west you'll find incredible rain forest and even spectacular surfing (but don't tell anyone).
