The SpaceBuilt in 2012, our guest suite is new and fresh. It consists of two rooms, one with a queen bed and the second with two twin beds. We can comfortably accommodate 4 people on beds, with an extra child in a playpen or on a foamy mattress, if desired/needed. Guests have their own, separate entrance and a private balcony where they can sit back and enjoy the sunrise with their morning cup of coffee (fair trade) or tea, which we provide. Please note there is no kitchen.
Please feel free to contact us any time for more information. We look forward to welcoming you! Guest AccessThe main bedroom, off your private balcony entrance, contains a queen size bed, has oak hardwood flooring and area rugs, a love seat, tv, dvd player, pvr, microwave, dressers, and two full size closets.
The bathroom is set between the two bedrooms and is outfitted with fresh towels, soaps, shampoo & conditioner, face cloths and a hair dryer. A bar fridge is located in the hallway between the two rooms, along with a coffee maker, and kettle. Please note: there is NO kitchen!
The second bedroom is carpeted throughout and offers two twin beds. A play pen is also available for those with a baby or toddler. We can also set this room up with a thick foamy bed if anyone would like it for a 5th guest. A selection of toys and books for younger children can be provided if desired (just ask us and we will be happy to oblige). There is an armchair, desk, chair, and hardwired internet connection (as well as Wi-Fi).
Guests will enjoy having their own, east-facing private balcony where they can sit at the bistro table and enjoy watching the sunrise with a warm cup of tea or coffee. Interaction with GuestsWe are an active couple and family. We love where we live and are happy to share our knowledge of our beautiful island with all who come to stay. 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.
There are many more attractions close by including wineries, a cidery (just down the road), art studios, fabulous restaurants, beaches, hiking trails, and much, much more. In addition, Victoria is the gateway to all that Vancouver Island has to offer!
We are located in a quiet semi-rural area close to amenities (airport, ferries, restaurants, groceries, shopping and many other attractions). It is a peaceful, safe and quiet neighbourhood - perfect for a morning stroll with a cup of coffee or tea in hand.
As well, there is a full recreation center less than 5 minutes from our door: facilities include a great pool with a water slide, lengths pool, 'river', hot tub, kid pool; indoor tennis courts, squash courts, full weight room & cardio; two ice rinks.
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 base listing price is $80 per night based on double occupancy. Beyond the first 2 guests, there is a $5 charge for each additional guest regardless of age.
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.
