About carol wilk

Being a third generation Victoria, is a true testament to the magic Victoria bestows on everyone who visits. We have been grateful to grow up in Victoria

carol wilk purchased this house in 2002

Why carol wilk chose Victoria

We are both very attracted to water and boating. I am a rower and therefore spend quite a bit of time rowing on the Gorge waterway. I told my husband that I wanted to find a place on the Gorge, so... he found me one! The house was not perfect for us so in 2011 we took the house down and built our dream home, and appreciate it every day! Come stay with us and experience the aura of the Gorge and the charm of Victoria.

What makes this house unique

Enjoy the private sundeck that is included in this rental, on nice days you will find yourself sitting and enjoying a little longer than you expect to just because it is so good for the soul out on this deck! It is complete with a BBQ, table and chairs and a double lounger (great for sun tanning) or just chilling with a good book.

Beautiful little getaway for two

  • 5 of 5

Carol and Kelly were amazing hosts. Nola and I very much enjoyed our time in the Penthouse. The views of the Gorge were great and the location was near enough to the action to be convenient and far enough away to provide a quiet location to relax in.

Outstanding - one of the best stays I have ever had anywhere.

  • 5 of 5

This property is over the top. The facility is complete in all ways. I would recommend this to my friends and family without question. Carol and Kelley are outstanding hosts, always inquiring as to how they could make our stay even better. The kitchen is complete and the appliances are top notch. The furniture (leather) was very comfortable and made our stay seem like home. If we venture back to Victoria for a stay we will try and come back to the "Penthouse".

The “Penthouse”

  • 5 of 5

The beautiful “Penthouse” had every amenity that we wanted and more. Immaculate, well appointed, gorgeous view over the gorge waterway and a comfortable deck area. The workout area with machines and equipment was a real bonus. Special touches from the hosts - a daffodil bouquet for spring, an Easter lily plant for the long weekend holiday, and wonderful hospitality throughout - were really appreciated.
