The SpaceA newly renovated 1940's, 1800 square foot home. Beautiful ocean and garden views, bright and open. Lots of room for parking (free!). Well-equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances. Two living/sitting rooms: one bright and airy sunroom and one huge living room with fireplace, flat screen TV and dining area. The house features beautiful local and international art work and high-end furniture and finishes. Two bedrooms are on the main floor and the third is down a flight of stairs. Master bedroom has a king sized bed and 2 ensuite bathrooms (1 with walk-in shower, 2nd with soaker tub); other two bedrooms each have a queen-sized bed. Pull-out couch in the sunroom (main floor) can accommodate 2 more people (for a total of 8 in the main suite). Third bathroom with tub/shower is also on the main floor and is shared between the other two bedrooms. This property features a large yard with ocean views, flower gardens, an orchard and veggie and herb gardens for your dining pleasure (seasonal!). Very comfortable and welcoming. The property is next to a small highway so you will hear some dull traffic noise if you are outside at peak times of day. The kitchen has everything you need to feel at home. Tea, locally roasted coffee, sugar, condiments, preserves and spices are included. Help yourselves to sauces and any creamers left in the fridge as well! **Please note: There is no dishwasher so dishes must be washed by hand. Guest AccessFull kitchen, 2 living rooms, wireless internet, satellite TV (with Crave TV), PVR, Apple TV, Netflix, Blu-ray player and DVDs, large yard with a small orchard (apples, pears and plums), 2 patios, a shared BBQ and plenty of parking. Highchair and pack-and-play available upon request! Laundry room is available for stays of 5 nights or longer. It's five steps to get into the home, then everything is on one level (except laundry room and 3rd bedroom) so very walker/wheelchair friendly once inside. Bathrooms have fresh towels, hair dryer and soap for your use and bedrooms have spare linens for lengthier stays. Bedrooms and bathrooms all have big opening windows so you can enjoy fresh ocean air during your stay! Interaction with GuestsI will not be at the house during your visit, but will be available at all times should you need anything! If you would prefer that I be there to greet you, please let me know! Otherwise it is self-check-in. This is the home that I live in when you aren't there, so if you ever need anything extra I likely have it somewhere in the house :-) Just ask! The NeighborhoodLocated in the heart of North Saanich close to the Town of Sidney or quick access onto the Pat Bay highway to zip downtown Victoria. I have quiet, friendly neighbours and live on a safe, flat street with tons of trails, beaches, farms and parks nearby. Panorama Rec Centre is just a 2 minute drive up the road and has a pool with waterslide, a skating rink, weight room, tennis and squash courts. I'm just 5 minutes to the airport and 10 minutes to the ferry terminals for Anacortes/San Juan Islands, Vancouver and the Gulf Islands. Favourite local eats include The Roost Farm Centre (with bakery and restaurant), the Prairie Inn Pub, CenSai Roll Sushi, Peninsula Pizza (take-out only), Haro's at The Pier, Sabhai Thai, and Maria's Souvlaki. Sea Cider Farm & Cidery is just a 2 minute drive down the street (or 20 minute walk) and does great optional food pairings with their cider tastings. Worth the visit! Check out my guidebook for tons more suggestions. Great dog parks within walking distance are Dominion Brook Park across from the Panorama Recreation Centre and the Cy Hampson Park just on the other side of the highway and about a 10 minute walk to your left. Getting AroundThe nearest transit stop is a 10 minute walk up the road and you can bus into Sidney, Saanichton or Victoria (though the bus makes lots of stops so it's not a fast option!). The beautiful, quaint town of Sidney is less than a 10 minute drive, and Brentwood Bay, wineries and the Butchart Gardens are 15 minutes away. Just a 25 minute drive to Downtown Victoria. The airport is a 5 minute drive, so is an inexpensive taxi-ride if you don't have a car. The bus does not go from my house to the airport. Other Things to NoteThis is a pet-friendly home so if you have severe pet allergies it may be best that you choose another space. While the house is cleaned thoroughly between each guest I would hate for your allergies to act up! I live near to the highway so you will hear some minor road noise if you are outside. Herbs and produce are seasonal so I apologize if at certain times of the year there is not much to choose from in my garden! Local farms nearby will have much more throughout the year :-)

The NeighborhoodWe love the rural setting, clean air, and our close proximity to the ocean. Southern Vancouver Island is also a prolific centre of the culinary arts in this part of the world. There are many local growers and fantastic restaurants and coffee shops within easy reach. For coffee we recommend, the Emporium in Brentwood Bay, or the Fresh Cup in Saanichton. Zanzibar is very close and is a fantastic restaurant and The Brentwood Lodge Pub is nearby and very popular as is the historic Prairie Inn which is at the Saanichton end of Mount Newton Cross Rd. Guests should explore the local beaches, parks and amenities, and don't forget to visit the world famous Butchart Gardens and Butterfly World, which are less than 10 minutes drive away. Victoria, a tourist hotspot with The Empress Hotel and Scenic Inner Harbour, only a 30 minute drive south of us. Musical performances, festivals, and theatrical events are held at a variety of venues throughout the calendar year. Just ask us if you need anymore information or are looking for things to do during your stay. There is a very popular yoga studio in Brentwood called Breathing Space, a spa at the Brentwood Lodge and a nearby swimming pool, gym and ice rink at the Panorama Recreation Centre. Sidney is a very amenable sea side town just a short drive towards the airport and ferry terminal. There a a myriad of shops and restaurants and a pier and sea front to promenade along. Enjoy! Getting AroundThere is a community bus stop very close to our house which does connect to the main transit system although the easiest way to travel is by car or bike. Car rental is available at the airport or we can lend you a bike if you so wish. The airport and ferry terminals are a 15 minute taxi drive from the house. We can also pick you up and drop you off should you require a ride.

We are accessible if you need us, but you can also have full privacy during your stay. We are at home often, but are far enough away from your suite so that it's quiet and private. The NeighborhoodOur house and guest suite is situated between the wonderful communities of Sidney, Saanichton and Brentwood Bay - just minutes away from each of these charming centers/towns. As well, it is a short drive to the Victoria International Airport, BC Ferry’s Swartz Bay terminal, and the Washington State Ferry terminal (to the San Juan Islands and Anacortes). Downtown Victoria is a 25 min. drive, and the world famous Butchart Gardens is only 15 min. away.

Getting AroundYou will likely want a vehicle to get around. There is public transport but it is approximately a 10 to 15 min. walk to the nearest bus stops. Other Things to NoteThe value of this suite compared to staying in a hotel can not be understated - two rooms for less than the price of a single hotel room! We are family friendly and offer a unique, affordable and comfortable alternative for singles, couples, business travelers, or families. Centrally located on the Saanich Penninsula, there is so much to see and do close by and you are only 25 minutes from downtown Victoria.

Our minimum stay is 2 nights. For all stays, regardless of duration, you will likely find home-baked goodies on your staircase landing or balcony from time to time. :) Please note these accommodations are on the second level and accessed by an outside staircase - the suite is not wheelchair accessible.

          The SpaceAfter following the Tiny House movement for awhile I decided to build a Tiny House. The 100 square foot space is all cedar and pine with a roof of recycled tires. The small space has been used creatively with a small sleeping loft reminiscent of a sailboat cabin. Please note that there is a ladder to access the sleeping loft. Large windows let in lots of light and a sweet view of trees and shrubbery and the birds and squirrels that call the garden home. Guest AccessThere is a composting toilet in the separate little outhouse and a private outdoor shower. Just off the Tiny House porch is a covered outdoor kitchen equipped with all the necessary items to prepare meals. Tea, coffee, baked goods, local eggs, berries and other foodstuffs are provided for breakfast. There is free safe parking, but if you arrive by bicycle we offer a 10% discount. There is WiFi. Interaction with GuestsI really enjoy meeting travelers, especially those traveling by bicycle and am happy to suggest local bike rides or hikes. The NeighborhoodThe neighbourhood is peaceful and rural with beaches, parks, hills and woods all around. Getting AroundAn 8 minute walk takes you to bus stops going to Downtown Victoria or to SIdney and the ferry terminal. Restuarants, pubs and shopping at Broadmead and Brentwood Bay are also accessible by short bus rides. For cyclists the Lochside trail offers a traffic free route into Victoria and connections to the Galloping Goose trail out to Sooke.

                  The SpaceI love that seconds out of the driveway you are on your way and so close to world class attractions and an island to explore and down the back driveway is farmland, the ocean and the Galloping Goose Trail. The house is situated on a 1 acre property and if you are lucky to come at the right time of year we have fresh cherries, plums, figs, strawberries, blackberries, apples and whatever vegetables Becky is growing at the time. Guests have access to our unheated in-ground pool if you need to take a break from sightseeing and want to just lounge in the backyard. If we left the back door open I'm pretty sure the deer would come inside(they are that tame) and you will be amazed at the large birds casually circling overhead during the day. Your private room is located on the upstairs level of the house. The space is shared with a busy flight attendant, 3 funny young cats and sometimes other AirBnb guests. (Please note, I rent 2 rooms in my house. You can access my other listing through my profile) Our house is comfortable, not fussy. Smoking is allowed outside with an ash tray. Guest AccessGuests will have full access to the shared living areas of the upstairs and your own private bedroom with linens. We have a full kitchen ready for you to use, a full bathroom near the bedrooms plus another powder room beyond the kitchen. We like to keep the house tidy and ask our guests to try and do the same. Please enjoy the large back yard. There are lots of chairs to lounge and relax in the sun or shade. Interaction with GuestsWe are busy working adults so we will be coming and going often. There will likely be times when everyone is gone and you can enjoy the peace and quiet. We are always a quick phone call away though if needed! Getting AroundA main bus stop is a 10-15 minute walk from the house. Buses go by very frequently the #70, 72 and 75 Other Things to NoteThe house is located on the Patricia Bay Highway(Highway 17) so some traffic noise is to be expected. We find it to be a dull roar compared to stop and go traffic. Ear plugs are provided. Pets live in this house. We have a large dog(she lives downstairs) and 3 kittens. They are all ridiculously friendly and will be very happy to see you. If you are not an animal person they will not be offended if you don't want to hang with them but we encourage guests to keep their bedroom door closed to discourage 4 legged visitors. I am a full time flight attendant so sometimes I will be away at work during your stay. My parents live in the basement suite and host in my absence. I think they really love it and secretly wish I was away more often haha. I am still only a phone call, a text or a message away. Please don't ever feel bad for reaching out :)
