Overview

About the property

Your home away from home downtown Victoria - 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 2600 sq ft of comfortable west coast living over two storeys and three bedrooms. If you have a group with six or more adults, please consider renting the entire five bedroom house (this three bedroom suite plus the lower two bedroom suite) via this listing: VRBO Listing #430877

The main floor has the two bedrooms (queen beds) and a sunny 'open concept' living space with a kitchen, sunroom, dining room and living room with electric fireplace and 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 ten people.

The top floor is the master bedroom with a king size bed and a full ensuite bathroom. 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.

There is a wonderful sunroom 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 firepit and a patio plus chairs for lounging.

We accept most pets but they must stay outside or in the sunroom. 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 $100/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.

Not only a great vacation spot but a comfortable temporary home for those on the road. Perfect for longer stays and entertaining.

PERKS:

You can add the lower suite to get more space and an extra bathroom.

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

We have a bike for your use.

Two bedrooms have separate entrances.

Very close to downtown Victoria.

Lots of boardgames (Scrabble, Twister, crib, etc)

Great family reunion home.

Huge kitchen and well-equipped for big meals.

School playground right around the corner.

Beautiful neighbourhood for walking/sightseeing.

Perfect for special events (stags, bachelorette parties).

We will consider pets, but they must stay in the yard/sunroom.

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 three vacation rental properties while studying at university. My parents own the house and I manage it with my father, Gord. 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

What makes this house unique

We don't mind large gatherings such as stags, as long as the home is respected and especially our neighbours. We are lucky to have one neighbour running as a business, so nighttime activity does not affect them, but we do have other neighbours!

Perfect family landing spot!

  • 5 of 5

I'd give 10 stars if I could! House is ideally located, hosts are delightful and responsive, beds are cozy, towels are plentiful, kitchen is well appointed, yard is beautiful! We came up from Seattle to host our Canadian cousins for Thanksgiving and felt like heroes for finding this great home! We'll be back!

Excellent home for the bride and her entourage!

  • 5 of 5

We had a destination wedding in Victoria to attend and this home was a perfect home away from home. We had the bride, her attendants, the brides parents and 2 sets of grandparents. The house was excellent for preparing for the big event. We all had our own spaces and the day after the wedding we hosted an open house brunch. The house is so perfect! The yard is wonderful and a lovely space to host a large number of guests. We really liked the proximity to downtown and all that Victoria has to offer. Megan and Gord were super accommodating and made us feel very welcome. Thanks! We will return.

Very nice, clean and homey place to stay within walking distance to local attractions

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay at your home and enjoyed the very clean and cute home. Our stay was too short and we would come back again. My adult kids stayed in the 2 front rooms and mentioned you could hear everything going on in each other's room. Not really a problem for them though. The furnishings were very comfortable.

We are a five minute walk away from the Victoria Art Gallery, Craigdarroch Castle and the Lieutenant Governors Mansion. At the LGM there are beautiful gardens and a garry oak grove to walk through boasting beautiful views of the ocean and Fairfield. We are also a ten minute walk into downtown!

We are also right beside a middle school. This school has the largest field in all of Victoria - great for dog walking and playing with kids. There's a big playground and a basketball court.
