Photos and Description of the Cordova Bay vacation house rental

My house is on a very private half acre with a fully fenced backyard. Mature trees surround the property and provide shade in the summer and attract many kinds of birds in every season. This rental is for the entire house which is bright and very clean, sleeping 5 comfortably.

The main floor has lovely hardwood floors thrioughout except in the master bedroom where there is new carpet. The original coved ceilings and heavy plaster walls add to the character. The living room and dining room are open and L shaped with a very warm and efficient natural gas fireplace in the living room and a beautiful Shaker style table that seats up to 8 comfortably in the dining room.

Access to the large secluded deck is through sliding glass doors off the dining room. In the summer you'll find comfortable deck furniture including 6 chairs, a table that seats 6, an umbrella and hammock as well as a natural gas barbecue that can be used all year in Victoria!

There is a queen bed in the master bedroom with an en suite bathroom (sink and toilet) off. The office/ third bedroom has a new, comfortable queen sofa bed and the second upstairs bedroom has a new double bed. The main bath with combo bath and shower has been recently renovated with a lovely heated tile floor. The kitchen has all appliances (stove, fridge, microwave, and dishwasher) as well as all the cooking utensils and basics you might need.

A bright sun room faces the fenced backyard off the kitchen. I have wireless internet, 2 DVD players, 2 tvs, 2 PVRs, a Logitech docking station and a piano for anyone who plays. There is one covered parking spot and lots of room in the newly paved driveway for a second vehicle. A front load washing machine and dryer, a playroom for children* and lots of room for storage are downstairs. Anyone wanting a workout without leaving the house can use the elliptical strider that's kept in the office.

I hope you'll enjoy staying in my quiet, comfortable, clean home as you enjoy all Victoria has to offer!

*Please note that there is no charge for children under 16. If you want an accurate quote and are bringing children just enter the number of adults (no children). However please let me know if you are bringing children so I can make appropriate arrangements for them.

Cordova Bay

This home is in a fabulous location; Cordova Bay which is about a 15 minute drive to downtown Victoria and the same to Sidney and the ferries. Butcharts Gardens is a short drive away. Broadmead shopping center, with a Thriftys grocery store, liquor store, Canadian Tire, Pharmasave, Starbucks, a Romeo's Pizza and an excellent Thai restaurant, is less than 10 minutes away. Many fabulous, and mostly organic, farms as well as wineries are both a short drive away. We are a 3 minute walk to Elk Lake which has a fabulous forested and shaded 10 km walking/ running trail, playgrounds and beaches for swimming. This is also where Canada's mens rowing teams trains. The ocean, a world class 18 hole golf course, a Par 3 golf course with a view across to Mount Baker and a small market grocery store, VQA wine store and many small shops featuring local products and services are about a 15 minute walk down the ridge to the east. One of our favourite things to do is to walk down to the newly renovated restaurant, The Beach House, right on the ocean for a glass of wine at sundown. The Saanich Commonwealth Place with a fully equipped weight room, a huge swimming pool with a wave pool, shallow tot pool and dive tank, lots of drop in classes and a public library is 5 minutes away

Biking enthusiasts will love riding on the Galloping Goose Trail, a dedicated biking and walking path, which is about an 8 minute ride from our house. It was established from a reclaimed railroad bed that goes downtown, out the peninsula or heads up the west coast of the island at a gentle elevation children can manage as well.

Our city, Victoria, British Columbia is a top tourist destination on the southernmost tip of Vancouver Island. Victoria and the surrounding areas have many diverse activities and sights; golfing, whale watching, garden tours, salmon fishing, hiking, shopping, visiting our beaches and parks, biking, boating, etc. Downtown there are many wonderful restaurants, heritage buildings, shops, the Royal B.C. Museum, street performers, the legislative buildings and more. You can drive up island for a day of beachcombing, wine tasting, swimming or hiking. If you'd like to explore a bit further you can take a ferries to the Gulf Islands, to Vancouver and then on to Whistler or to Washington State, USA.
