Very clean, sunny, big, quiet and cozy room on basement level. Queen bed, big desk & modern shared bathroom in large, new house in beautiful, quiet, safe area. 10 mins from downtown BY CAR and 20 mins BY BUS (#22). Free, easy parking. Busstop 300 metres from house. Note: We live on main and top floors with our 7 month old and 3 year old sons, so if you desire complete silence during your stay our house may not be the right one for you! 8:30pm to 8am the house is very peaceful for relaxing!
Our house is quite large (4000 square feet on 3 levels)...your room is on the lower level. There is another room that we rent out sometimes on this level but it really is quite far from your room as it is separated by a large media room and then a long hallway. If there is another guest the bathroom is shared so please keep it tidy. We will let you know if another guest is in the other room. You are welcome to keep the door that connects the lower level to upstairs shut----feels nice and private that way.
We can sense if you are the type of guest who would like to chat a bit and also a guest who is tired and just wants to go to relax in your room:) We will respect your energy levels and desire to socialize or not:) Regardless, we can give you tons or great info on Victoria and Vancouver Island especially where to eat and drink:)
Your room is on the lower level. We have two sons 3 years and 7 months and a nice shy little cat. Our sons goes to sleep on the top floor (very far from your room!) between 7:30 and 8:30pm We bring them to the main floor (above your room) each morning at 8 am or so, so you may hear sounds of little feet and happy or unhappy sounds.
Is shared if there is another guest staying on this floor.
Our hot water system is "on demand" so it takes a few minutes for hot water to come to the taps at times.
Shower: A few people have difficulty turning the shower on--so here are some detailed instructions....turn on the tap handle and the water will come out of the faucet and then to get the water to come out of the shower head high above you, pull down on the circular bottom part of the shower's faucet--this circular piece is about 1.5 inches (4cm) wide is the lowest part of the faucet.
If you have a car, please park in one of the parking bays across the street from our house. These bays are free to park in and there is no time limit. You can park in the driveway to unload your luggage and then move your car to a parking bay a little later. If the parking bays near our house are full please tell us and we can figure out a solution. We use both of our cars frequently each day that's why we don't have guests park in the driveway unfortunately.
