Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
One block from the ocean, quiet and private nestled in a wonderful garden, - adult oriented cottage, newly renovated in west coast beach theme. Loft space with queen sized mattress accessed with ladder - opening skylight to star gaze: pull out couch, kitchenette, bathroom, electric fireplace, 3 skylights, warm cosy atmosphere.

The space
This space is beautifully renovated- think in terms of " tiny house" - the loft space is just that - a loft accessed by a ladder which needs to be climbed. The mattress is a comfortable queen sized with opening skylight just above. There is sitting headroom but not standing. It is painted white, and both the skylight and the fact that it opens onto the main space gives it a light and airy feeling. It is like being in a treehouse .There is also a new pull out double couch on the main level - and an electric fireplace, and television. Great fun.
There is a kitchenette with fridge and light cooking facilities as well as a three piece bathroom with a rain shower. Beautifully decorated and newly renovated - see photos, and please be sure you understand there is a ladder to be climbed.

The Cottage is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected with a conscious concern for the Coronavirus issues by myself as a guarantee the best and most thorough job is done. I will greet guests with face mask and will provide guests with face masks for their stay if they don’t have any.

This property has a proper business license.

2 old family bikes can be borrowed.

Tea, coffee, juice and home baked treats included.

Where you’ll be

Victoria, British Columbia, Canada

Friendly and quiet neighbourhood - safe. This is an old character community, in fact the property is part of the old Fairfield Farm Estate. Five to ten minute walk away is the Fairfield Plaza - grocery shop, pub, bakery, pharmacy etc. in the other direction is Cook Street Village - more pubs, restaurants, coffee shops and boutiques. Beacon Hill Park is close by and a complete walk into the Inner Harbour will take about half an hour.

Have lived and travelled extensively throughout the world- worked on sailboats for most of my life chartering for guests or doing deliveries across oceans . I now have a lovely small cottage with a garden that has been on Garden Tours - and have finished renovating the other small building on my property - which doubles as a studio and guest space. Still love sailing and do so as often as I can - love my cottage and the garden and spend a lot of time gardening - photography, architecture and travelling, especially in central and South America are other favourite activities.

During your stay

Pleased to help as necessary. Lots of tourist information. If you need anything special, I may be able to lend it to you from my own cottage. If you like to cook, the little kitchenette in the garden cottage is too small, so I always offer the use of the kitchen in my own cottage. I am very easy going and truly happy to accommodate wherever I can.
