The suite is almost 900 square feet and is located on the entire first (ground) floor of the house. One bedroom with a very comfortable queen bed and lots of storage/closet space.
There is a three piece bathroom with large soaker bathtub. The kitchen has everything you need to make your stay very comfortable. There is a large TV (PVR, DVD player) and gas fireplace in the living room
The kitchen/living room opens up to an expansive patio that has a bar b que, hot tub, patio furniture and outdoor fireplace.
The suite is very private with a separate entrance. As it is on the entire first floor there is no shared area. Guest will have access to WIFI. There is ample street parking
This is our primary residence, however the main living area is two floors above the suite. You will have complete privacy. We do travel extensively and have a vacation property in Arizona so at times we may not even be at the house.
The house was recently renovated and is on a quiet no through street with only one other house on the street. It is on a 1/3 acre in park like setting with larger trees surrounding the property. A family of deers live in the green space adjacent to the house.
We live in a quiet community called Cordova Bay just 15 minutes from downtown Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. Victoria is the capital city located on Vancouver Island and is home of the provincial capital buildings and the empress hotel (famous for high tea). Victoria has many world class restaurants and funky neighborhood pubs.
Within 5 minutes of our house are numerous hiking paths, beaches, a lake for swimming, restaurants, farmers' market, grocery store, and an 18 hole golf course.
If you like biking we are 1 block away from the The Galloping Goose Regional Trail which is a 55-kilometre rail trail between Victoria and the ghost town of Leechtown.
Boating, fishing and whale watching are basically right outside our door step.
World famous Butchard Gardens is a 15 minute drive from our house.
You can get here easily by car (via one of the three ferry services) or by air landing at the Victoria International airport which is a short drive from our house.
If you plan to be here sometime in the winter months and would like to ski, there is a downhill ski resort (Mount Washington) 2 and 1/2 hours away.
If you like the outdoors, old growth forests, beaches, mountains and friendly people, you will love our house and the surrounding area.
