“We spent two weeks in this house and where delighted about the view! Beautiful ocean view, but also view on the nest of the Bald Eagle, just from our bed! Nice garden too and from ''dad's cafe" we could enjoy seaview through the big windows, opened or closed. We made a lot of trips in different beautiful provincial parks, enjoyed the beautiful landscape of Vancouver Island. Went to Tofino for 2 days and did whale- and bear-watching over there. On the way back we saw a bear along the road! Victoria is a pleasant and beautiful city. We could go there walking along the waterfront. After dinner we made short walks to lots of different beaches on cliffs or with direct access to the sea. Quiet and beautiful neighbourhood. Andrew prepared good information about his house and provided us welcome flowers. Mittens the cat was our company and became more and more familiar. During our stay we stayed in contact with Andrew by email and we kept exchanging tips to each other. Very nice contact! We enjoyed our two weeks in this lovely house!”

Where is it?
Our home is perfect for those who want to get away from it all, but still be able to have it all within 10 minutes should the mood change. We have had a couple of repeat exchanges so people must be happy with our location. We have one of the two nesting eagles pairs in Victoria in Saxe Point Park. You can view into a bald eagle's nest from the house. Occasionally you can also see seals, whales and otters from the home. You can hear the sound of the ocean while you sleep. On calm summer nights you can hear seals "slapping" the water to scare fish.
We are only 8 mins to downtown Victoria by car and about 15-20 minutes by bike. Convenient to public transit, bike trails recreation centre and shopping. The neighbourhood area is a destination in itself with either a beach or park at the end of every street. Easy access to the local attractions of Victoria BC. Some attractions are within walking distance.
Victoria has several good theatres. All the theatres are within 15 mintues. Great museums and art galleries within minutes too. Seasonally world record deep snow base available for skiing or snowboarding at Mount Washington 3hrs north...if you're up to the drive or you can take the commuter bus.
We welcome children but fear the immediate environs are unsuitable for toddlers and small children. There are just too many stairs,cliffs and high places to fall from.
