Description

The location is ideal due to its centrality to most everything. Grocery stores, drug stores, banks, restaurants, cafe`s, liquor stores, post office, hospitals, all of these and more (like the harbour and the beach) are within a 2 to 20 minute walk. All major bus routes can be caught in 1-2 blocks from the house.

Convenience is important, but beauty of your surroundings plays a major role in the attraction of this suite. St. Charles Street is home to more than its share of old Victorian heritage homes (some of which are B&Bs now) with amazing gardens and huge trees. Just down the street is the Government House with the majesty of its views of the Olympics and the ocean, not to mention the breathtaking gardens that some call "mini-Butchart".

"Well appointed" is a term that is commonly used to describe this unit. It has everything from high speed wi-fi to an ipod docking station; and if it doesn`t have it and you need it, Liz and Bruce will get it for you. All of this, not forgetting the former heritage garden that wraps all around the house, provides breathtaking photo opportunities to send back home.

Perfect for those wanting to escape the "tourism" of downtown, yet still be close enough to be a part of it if desired. This suite is ideal for the frequent visitor to Victoria and for those who like to live like a local.

Call or email us with any questions you may have. We look forward to speaking to you.

Minimum of monthly rentals for November through to the end of February. Remainder of year, 4 day minimum rental.

The place was perfect. Bruce and Liz were so nice and helpful. My flight arrived at 11pm, and Bruce was waiting for me in front of the house. The location was perfect, 2 blocks from Gov. House and the Castle, walking distance to downtown, BC Museum, Harbour etc. On your way downtown you will pass restaurants, schools, bookstores which made you feel like you were actually living in Victoria instead of touring. Room was super clean, Bruce and Liz provided everything you need. The best thing they prepared was the guide booklet. You could find all information, from restaurants, must see sight to taxi company contacts. This was my first trip to Victoria and my first guest house/AirBnB experience. I had so much fun and thanks to Bruce and Liz who made this trip perfect.

I love your wonderful home and we were so comfortable in your "Garden Cozy". It is aptly named. I think I had some of my best sleeps in a long time. We were here for hockey camp so didnt spend as much time hanging out as we might have. I will definitely be back and will recommend this to more of my hockey families. Thank you so much. PS Loved Emmy (dog). So sweet and helped me not miss my "Abbie" so much.

Thanks so much for your kindness and hospitality. My sister and I loved our stay at the Garden Cozy. You have made this such a comfortable and beautiful suite and it was the perfect home base for all of our Victoria adventures. You have a beautiful home and it was a real pleasure to stay here. We would definately recommend to and would love to stay here again.

We really enjoyed our stay in the Garden Cozy. As former Victoria residents, we appreciated staying outside of downtown and all the tourist clutter. A very quiet neighbourhood, a beautiful suite, and very friendly hosts. Thanks Liz and Bruce, well be back.

This two bedroom/two bathroom apartment is clean and nicely furnished with comfortable beds and linens. The apartment is the basement flat of a very large, beautiful heritage home. Although we could hear footsteps from above and the apartment was moderately dark (because it is on the ground/basement level), the furnishings, beautiful gardens, very quiet surroundings and spaciousness far made up for these aspects. Other than the footsteps from above, the apartment was quiet and peaceful. The owners were friendly and happy to offer suggestions for local activities and restaurants. The neighborhood is a short drive or moderate walk to town, and there is a playground/park and several restaurants within a couple blocks away.

Thank you very much for your help in settling in-you certainly went the extra 1.61 km...partially the almost permanent "loaner" computer. We love the place, and would be delighted to return next year.
