The modern Carriage House sleeps four comfortably. There is a queen Bed in the master and two singles in the second bedroom. A full stainless steal kitchen is ready for Gourmet meals with fresh BC fruit and vegetables bought from the farmers markets or sea food bought directly from the fisherman's boat. A wood burning stove in the living space is wonderful to cozy up to in the evenings and enjoy a glass of wine or a good book. A covered balcony over looking the beautiful property is the perfect place for your morning coffee and evening cocktail . Sitting on the deck down at the pond you may see an abundance of wildlife. Deer, fish, blue heron, bald eagles, mink, and numerous feather friends have been spotted many times. Certain times of the year the pond is nice to swim in . If you are up for a challenging hike, the property backs onto a lush undisturbed forested area with a beautiful creek. You may be able to make the short hike up the stream to the small water fall, but you are going to get wet.

About Tara & Jamie
We relocated from Saskatchewan to the island just this past summer. We moved for our love of the great outdoors, oceans, forests, wildlife, and yes of course the mild winter climate, which was the last nudge that we needed. We purchased this property with the idea of sharing this beautiful Home and Island experience with others from all over the world. We sincerely hope that you love it as much as we do.
Tara & Jamie purchased this House in 2014

we enjoyed our stay at the carriage house. my brother looked forward in stoking up the wood stove for that nice warmth on a winters day.
We are happy you were comfortable and enjoyed your stay.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the carriage house!
Very comfortable accommodations and beautiful property! My daughters 7 and 8 had so much fun on the trampoline, the rope swing and petting the animals. Thanks Tara and Jamie for sharing your beautiful home with us.
A perfect place for a relaxing vacation.
We found Cedar Hollow to be very charming and comfortable with everything we needed. The property was lovely and made for a very relaxed holiday. It was easy to find our way around and would love to visit again. We also want to thank Jamie for his recommendation on whale watching. We went to Ocean Ecoventure In Cowichan Bay and had a wonderful experience with a captain that was very knowledgeable who made it fun and educational.
Great spot, perfect for our family of 4!
Cedar Hollow was such a fantastic spot for our family of 4 (2 adults and 2 teenagers) while we were in the Victoria/Cowichan area. The house was exactly as described and it was great to have a full kitchen, good sized bedrooms and a nice sitting area.
We went all over the place in our 5 days in the area and everything was really easy to get to because of the location of the house - Victoria, Sooke, Langford, Cowichan, Salt Spring, etc...nothing was too far away.
If we are ever back on the island and in the area, Cedar Hollow will definitely be our go to spot to stay!
Perfect escape from the city.
My family and I stayed in the Carriage house while attending a weeks worth of family wedding events in Saanich and Victoria. Although we were about 30-40 minutes away from our events, it was well worth the drive. The cottage was a perfect getaway from the busyness of Victoria and gave us something to look forward to at the end of our busy, wedding event filled days. The views were outstanding including thick woods, flowers, deer, horses and goats. The owners of the home did not engage with us unless we sought them out which made the rental feel even more private. The house was cool despite the hot summer climate and the deck was, by far, my favorite place to be; in the morning with my coffee and in the evening with my glass of wine. We will certainly consider this location again when we return to Canada.
We are glad you enjoyed your time here it was a pleasure hosting you. Safe travels
