About our home

Our home is 10 minutes from the nearest city (Duncan) and an hour from downtown Victoria, the capital. The house has two levels. There are 3 bedrooms, sleeping up to 6 guests. A car could be negotiated.

There is a large open plan living/dining area and a gourmet kitchen/family room with comfortable seating. The master bedroom has a king size bed and a beautiful on suite bathroom. There is also a second full bathroom.

Downstairs :
There are 2 bedrooms, each with queen beds, a full bathroom, a large TV room with comfortable seating, including a pullout couch and 56" HD TV with extensive cable package and high speed internet.

Outdoor living:
Aside from the stunning mountain and lake views and an attractive 0.4 acre garden, we have a large two level deck. The upper deck has a propane BBQ and patio furniture. The lower deck has a hot tub and private, shady sunken garden with hammocks. The property is surrounded by Garry oak and Arbutus trees that give privacy and a park like feel. From the deck observe lots of wildlife including deer, bald eagles, turkey vultures, California quail and hummingbirds.
The driveway is fairly steep and combined with stairs both inside and outside, it may be a little challenging for people with mobility issues.
