Property Description

People love our home as soon as they enter. The warm Sana Fe colours, fir floors, Persian carpets combine with a retro reno of the l914 era with modern kitchen, large island for entertaining, concrete counter tops and light, sun filled open living room. We're a stones throw from the best coffee bakery deli in South Oak Bay (Demi-Tasse) and a few blocks from all your shopping on charming Oak Bay Ave; a foodies delight with delis, bistros, organic produce, cafes, wine shop, pubs and pharmacy. Have breakfast on our sun filled, expansive, back flowered deck, surrounded by a Mediterranean styled grapevine Lounge in the private back garden hot tub in the evening under the stars. We are on a quiet, chestnut treed street with wonderful neighbours and only 4 blocks to McNeil Bay-a gentle pebble beach to view glorious sunsets over the Olympic Mountains of Washington.

Such a great base of operations that we spent a lot of time at "home!"


This was a very pleasant, welcoming place to stay; we recommend it highly. Beautiful art; sunny, colorful, comfortable rooms; inviting multi-deck back yard with flowers and hot tub; gracious hosts. Very different from typical VRBO rentals in which we hope to be able to find extra towels and kitchen basics, etc. We ended every evening in the hot tub... Read More

Friendly home with lots of personality


This centrally-located house is definitely a character home with an inviting atmosphere. The owners are very friendly and have been living in the home for 30 years and taken good care of the property. The downstairs have been remodelled, however the upstairs floor boards creaked, which caused a few restless nights for our younger kids not used to t... Read More
