Drenched in sunlight, this spectacular renovated home edges on running paths and ocean walks, with boutiques, cafes, downtown Victoria and golf courses only minutes away! Feast in our spacious kitchen or barbeque in our sprawling yard. Our home is full of colour and light. Lounge in our comfortable beds, or in our living room in front of the fireplace, looking out onto the garden, yard and park. We aim to make you feel at home!

The space
Our home is architecturally-unique, renovated, drenched in sunlight, and family-friendly. A few minutes walk will find you on the doorstep of fabulous independent restaurants, grocery stores, and elegant and funky boutique shops. Or your wanderings might take you along the nearby hiking paths that offer spectacular views of the Pacific. A seven-minute drive, or 15-minute cycle will take you right to the centre of town where the Bay Centre, Johnson and Government streets will do their best to fulfill your shopping desires. We're perfectly located for families too: you can kick a soccer ball around in the yard or park, or hang with the kids in the playground across our quiet street.

Our home has two bathrooms, three bedrooms, and room to sleep an additional two people on the pull-out futon couch in the livingroom, as well as one more on a single, futon floor mattress. Our kitchen is stocked with lots of spices and appliances. And the barbeque off the kitchen patio doors is perfect for any summer meal.

Guest access
Guests have access to free parking, a washer, dryer, and barbeque, HD screen, as well as a range of board games and DVDs. All guests are also invited to the community potluck that takes place every Tuesday evening at 6:00 (weather permitting) in the park across the street.

Other things to note
Our home has a private, one-bedroom suite with a separate entrance, driveway, yard and garden. It is currently occupied. Laundry facilities are shared with the suite, though accessed by a separate entrance. Ours is not a party house - we love our neighbours and their kids, and want to ensure we respect their needs.

Victoria, British Columbia, Canada

Our neighbourhood is friendly and very safe! Our home is on a tiny peninsula bordered with beaches on three sides, plus lawns, wild rabbits, beautiful gardens and a playground. There are community potlucks in the park every Tuesday night, and all guests are welcome. A large grocery store (Thrifty Foods) is about a 15-minute walk or five-minute drive, as is the nearest pub and Starbucks. Wonderfully original boutique stores can be found on Oak Bay Avenue, a five- minute drive from the house.

WeI love to travel, and include Canada's Rocky Mountains, Jordan's Petra, Cambodia's Angkor Wat, and Guatemala among our favourite places in the world.
