The Galloping Goose trail connects to more than 55 kilometres of trails throughout Greater Victoria, including the downtown core, Inner Harbor, shopping, and tourist attractions. If walking or cycling, my home is the same distance to to core of downtown as if you were staying in James Bay area, however, instead of passing by heritage houses, Parliment Buildings, shops etc. your journey is through the Banfield park, down the Galloping Goose trail, past Point Hope Shipyard, and over the Johnston St. bridge. Buses within one block, connecting to downtown, tourist areas, University of Victoria, and Victoria General Hospital. Within a 20 minute walk, or 5 minute drive to grocery stores, drug stores, health food stores, restaurants, pubs, library and recreation centres.

The SpaceThis semi-private ground-floor space downstairs is yours exclusively. It is recently renovated, with hardwood floors, a modern bathroom, and a large flat screen TV with movies via Netflix. The bedroom is small and cozy with a queen bed (no closet), the TV room acts as the second bedroom and has a pullout couch that could accommodate kids or a second couple or just act as a hangout space. The bathroom adjoins the TV room and is small but very functional and modern, has a shower with both rainshower head and handheld spray (no tub). The main floor upstairs is shared with us. It's a recently renovated open-concept, with a Scandinavian modern style kitchen featuring butcher block countertops and white cabinets. It has a bay window dining area, sitting peninsula, bright living room / kid's play area, and sunny deck with BBQ, Adirondack chairs and dining area. Our yard is full of flowers and organic food. Its an eclectic blend of edible landscaping, kid's play area and English country garden, slightly chaotic but always delicious. We share chickens with the neighbour, which makes for a pleasant farmyard ambiance. In the summer kids can play in our sandbox and kiddie pool. Guest AccessFor your stay, you will have private use of our downstairs bedroom with queen bed (no closet), TV room (which has a 2-person pullout couch and small desk), and adjoining bathroom. This area is not closed off but is fairly separate and can be accessed directly from our front foyer, so that you can come and go with privacy. Upstairs has shared full kitchen (including dishwasher), living room, and sunny deck with BBQ. You can lounge in our garden and graze on our abundant berries, herbs and apples (when in season). There is free hi-speed WIFI throughout the house. Access to free laundry -- washer and dryer. Interaction with GuestsWe love to interact and chat with our travelers but are happy to respect your privacy if that is your preference. Tom works from a home office so there's usually someone around to answer questions. The NeighborhoodOaklands is a great neighbourhood, centrally located, and very verdant, quiet, and safe. We live a block from a major grocery store and mall, and bus routes that will get you quickly to downtown, UVic, Camosun, hiking at Mt Doug--so you really don't need a car to get around. But by car, most things are 10-15 minutes away (beach, parks, downtown, university). There is a local, kid-friendly public market with live music and a beer garden on Wednesday evenings throughout the summer just 2 blocks away. Getting AroundOur home is literally in the centre of Victoria. It's a great base to explore from -- away from the downtown congestion, yet nearby all the required necessities. You can get anywhere easily. It's also just a half block from the #4 bus that goes to downtown and UVic, and a few short blocks to several other major bus routes. It's a 15 minute safe (and flat!) bike ride to downtown or the beach (and you can borrow our old bike). There is ample free on-street parking. Other Things to NotePricing is for 2 people. We charge an extra $15 per person per night. Inquire about our kid-friendly pricing. Note that the rate is lower if you book for a week, month, or several month extended stay. Ask for details. We have free instant coffee. You may also use our breakfast supplies (cereal, instant oatmeal, gourmet coffee supplies, tea) for $5/day/person. We have two cats that may try to get friendly with you, so cat-allergic people may not do well. We have lovely tenants that live in a separate ground-floor suite with whom we share the yard and laundry room. Our older child is very charming but like any 4-year old can be sometimes noisy and rambunctious. We also have a baby and that sometimes means some 'irregular' nighttime hours for us upstairs. We hope you understand that that's just part of the package when bunking with a family. On the plus side, you can integrate into our family routines as much or as little as you feel comfortable with. We take great pride in our garden and yard, but won't make any promises about it being picture-perfect all the time. We have busy lives that sometimes don't fit as much weeding as we'd like. We also often have some landscaping project or other on the go.

The SpaceBright, clean, and modern 900+sq/ft Loft in the heart of Victoria. Almost everything in the downtown core is reachable by a 5-10 minute walk. There is secure, underground parking for one vehicle, wifi, 2 bathrooms, a spacious kitchen, and a view! The space is minimally but artistically furnished and is always kept very clean. Victoria's historic China Town is just one block over and there are many places to shop, eat, or drink nearby. This loft has 19' ceilings and floor to ceiling windows that let in lots of light and feature the magnificent view of the industrial district. The building is also just far enough from the downtown core (2 blocks) that we don't get much night time noise from vehicles or passers by. There is a washer and dryer available for use as well as a dishwasher, fridge, cookware, and dishes. All in all it's a very comfortable place to stay that is very conveniently located right in the heart of beautiful downtown Victoria. We'd love to have you!

The SpaceMy beautiful apartment is located in the heart of the safe, friendly and vibrant Cook St. Village neighbourhood, and right around the corner from the lovely Beacon Hill Park. All the streets are lined with large mature trees, and there are flowers everywhere you look. My home is a sunny second floor suite in an iconic 30's character building featuring gleaming wood floors, cove ceilings, windows on 3 sides, lovely grounds and spacious views. Beautiful, comfortable and inviting nature-inspired decor: leather, wicker, and wood paired with original paintings and fine art photos, pottery and art glass, plants, fairy lights, rocks, shells, books. There’s a large living/dining room with the world's most comfortable couches (seriously, everyone thinks so!) and a lovely sitting room looking out on the big evergreen arbutus tree (an excellent spot for morning journal writing or afternoon refreshments); lovely guest bedroom; and a well-equipped kitchen. The relaxing guest bedroom includes a desk, and space for your things in the closet and chest of drawers. The decor is tranquil and pretty, with fresh flowers, chilled lemon water and some delectable treats. In case you have sensitivities, the linens are always laundered with fragrance - free detergent. The freshly-painted 4-piece bathroom is definitely small - no practicing your best dance moves in there! :-) But it does have lots of great features anyway: lots of big fluffy towels; a basket of toiletries in case you forget something essential (several guests have been saved from having to make a desperate late-night shopping run for a toothbrush!); new tiles and floor.; and a window providing nice natural light. PLEASE NOTE: the bathroom is shared with me (so far not a problem that I'm aware of) and there's no electrical outlet in it. So if either of those are a deal-killer you won't be happy here! Includes wifi, heat and utilities, on-site laundry and secure bike storage. (AC is not necessary here where the ocean breezes moderate the heat) *** ACCOMMODATION OPTIONS: The rates listed are for the one guest bedroom in this 2 bedroom apartment. This is my home, although I do travel frequently as well. Generally, if I am in town I would be here as well during your stay. However, my schedule is very flexible so if you prefer private accommodation that can often be arranged - just let me know your preference when you make an inquiry. In this fantastic Cook St. Village location everything you could want is within a short walk: * Fun, friendly and convenient shops, cafes, markets and diverse ethnic eateries * Big beautiful Beacon Hill Park right around the corner * 10 minute walk through the park or village down to the gorgeous Dallas Rd. waterfront at the bottom of the street. There's a spectacular view across to the snow-capped Olympic Mountains, and a driftwood strewn beach. This is a favoured all-weather destination for locals and visitors: you can walk or run for miles alongside the coastline, kiteboard, hang-glide, or simply relax on the beach with your back against a log. * 10 - 15 minute walk the other way to the Inner Harbour downtown - Royal BC Museum, restaurants, shops, whale-watching tours and other attractions. Guest Access  LGBTQ friendly. Sorry, no solitary males. Guests are welcome to make themselves at home throughout the apartment. The kitchen is well-stocked with herbs, spices, condiments, coffee, tea, sugar and such that you are free to use. There will also be an assortment of complimentary breakfast foods on hand to get your first morning off to a good start. In the bathroom you'll find an assortment of essentials such as hair care products, toothbrushes, razors, lotion, contact lens solution etc. that you can help yourself to if you don't have your own. And of course, basics like body wash and toilet paper are always included in the price of your stay. Please note: there is a flight of stairs up to the suite. Not suitable for infants or very young children, but older ones (maybe 6 years or so and up) are possible. Interaction with Guests  Visitors to my home always remark on how relaxed and well cared for they feel, and I want the same for you. From making sure there are fresh flowers to greet you, to sharing insider tips about Victoria, I will do my best to ensure you feel truly comfortable and welcomed into my home and city like a special old friend. If we're here at the same time, I'm happy to chat or give you your space to the extent that suits you. ( I am very friendly and interested in everyone, but can restrain my curiosity if necessary! ) In addition to hosting my own guests, I have many years experience caring for visitors to a retreat center on Salt Spring Island and I truly love creating a wonderful ambiance for people to relax into and enjoy. The NeighborhoodIn this fantastic Cook St. Village location everything you could want is within a short walk: * Fun, friendly and convenient shops, cafes, markets and diverse ethnic eateries * Big beautiful Beacon Hill Park right around the corner * 10 minute walk through the park or village down to the gorgeous Dallas Rd. waterfront at the bottom of the street.

Getting Around  City transit bus stops are a short black away. The airport shuttle van, that takes passengers to and from every flight at Victoria airport, makes drop-offs and pickups literally right across the street. The bus depot for the coach bus to and from the ferry terminal for the ferry to Vancouver ( and Vancouver airport ) is less than 5 minute's drive away. I am often able to pick you up and/or drop you off there. The ferry terminal for the Coho ferry to/from Washington state is also about 5 minutes away, and I am often able to drive you and/or pick you up. This is also the case for the harbour to harbour seaplanes that fly between downtown Victoria and downtown Vancouver. If you do bring or rent a car, you'll find free on-street parking. Since this is an island we're on, getting here always has to involve either a ferry or a plane. I'm happy to help you sort out your travel arrangements prior to your journey so that you feel confident and comfortable about getting here. Other Things to Note Your welcome package will include maps and information about the city and surrounding area. If you tell me beforehand about your special interests, such as the kinds of activities you like to do, or things you like to see, I'll be sure to include relevant ideas and information. I am happy to lend you my picnic blanket, cooler and dishes; day pack; umbrella; local bird and flora guides; and other items you might not have brought along, that would make your stay more fun.

In the summer months the front porch (east facing) and the back deck and patio garden (west facing) are wonderful areas to lounge outside and take in some rays (don't forget sun screen). Every guest has thoroughly enjoyed the the perfect exposure to the rays. Fall and winter weather provide a perfect excuse to cozy up in front of the gas fireplace while someone tinkers away on the piano, read a good book and delight in great conversation with your loved ones.

GREAT LAYOUT The living room and separate dining room have original stain glass windows gracing both rooms. The antique dining table provides a wonderful back drop to the arts and craft character of the home along with the large bay window nestled in the front room. The morning sun streams into both rooms which is lovely! The living room has a gas fireplace and built-in hutch which sits under the original leaded glass windows. Hidden pocket wooden sliding doors between the dining room and living room can be left open or closed. The upright piano in the living room is available for the musician to tinker away! You'll find both these rooms and the furnishings compliment the era of the home beautifully. We are lucky to have tall windows throughout the main floor which allow in plenty of natural light and the high ceilings make the rooms nice and airy. Continuing along the main floor you'll find 3 bright and spacious bedrooms, a very large and roomy kitchen, a TV/ den room (off the kitchen), and a cool bathroom with tiles/glass shower and original claw foot bathtub. Off the den there are double French doors which lead onto the west facing deck and lovely garden with a slate patio nestled under two organic fruit trees. Perfect spot to see humming birds!

But if the 4th bedroom is needed by our guests we are happy to work something out. This request will need to be specifically made by our guest. HOW TO USE YOUR NEW SPACE In warm weather, in the mornings you may find yourself migrating with your coffee or tea onto the sun-drenched front porch while you see the locals walk their dog, or see children playing in the baseball field right across the street. We have two parks within 1/2 a block of us. The settee on the front is perfect to sit on and read the newspaper or close your eyes and take in the quiet. The afternoon and evening sun land on the back deck from early afternoon on. It is a wonderful spot to sit and relax and listen to the sounds of a happy and peaceful neighborhood wile away the afternoon sitting under the dappled shade of the fruit trees. The dining room and kitchen provide an intimate but open space to gather around a table and connect with your loved ones over a special meal. The living room encourages conversation but also provides a nice spot to read by the fire or play the piano and try your musical hands! The original claw foot tub in the bathroom is lovely to soak in after a day of walking and exploring our great city. Bath salts are provided in the cupboard, including candle scones to further enhance your spa experience. The den is warmed by the sun and is a great spot to read or watch TV.

We appreciate our guests being like-minded. No parties, loud music or loud people please.Thank you for keeping that in mind when you book Kipling Residence.

You can walk in 10 minutes or less to famous gardens, parks, neighbouring villages, shopping plaza, beaches, Dallas water front, and of course to downtown inner harbor which is a 20 minute walk. The world is your oyster! OUR NEIGHBOURHOOD - FAIRFIELD ACTIVITIES Between the months of May and October two blocks away a must-do is a visit to our local Moss St. Saturday market - where you can grab hot donuts, breads, brioches, jams, pies, cookies or local organic produce, pastas, seafood, freshly cooked foods, and other host of non-food items.

VICTORIA AND SURROUNDING AREA You will find Vancouver Island beautiful yet rugged west coast of British Columbia. We are blessed with beautiful ocean, beaches, mountains and lakes that make Vancouver Island a unique place to live and even a more amazing place to visit. The city of Victoria is famous for its natural landscape, Garry Oak trees, nestled community surrounded by beaches and natural lakes. Flower baskets adorn the main core of downtown Victoria. Victoria is a Sunday brunch city so get ready to line up on a Sunday, well worth the wait. Our wine bars and brasseries are just as popular as so are our family style restaurants and the famous Royal BC museum. Just outside the city less than 30 minutes by car you can tour our "wine country" or visit local farmers. It doesn't get any better than this..Fairfield and our Kipling home is your home away from home.

Both the deck and porch are lovely to sit any time of the day. The double French doors can be fully opened on the back deck as we don't have huge issues with mosquitos and flies etc. Interaction with GuestsI leave it up to the guests. I am happy to have our Air BnB guests ask questions as needed or give ideas about our wonderful city and outlying areas to explore. I have travelled and love meeting people but also respect the privacy of others. Most likely I may be out of town or staying nearby while we host Air BnB quests, but I am always available by phone and happy to assist. We are friendly and like to meet new people! The NeighborhoodIncredible area and city. Gardens, Parks, Oceans, Lakes, intimate neighbourhoods. Vibrant downtown but not overwhelming.

Other Things to NoteWe have a self-contained fully separated suite which is rented permanently to my quiet tenant, tenant entrance is ground level in front of the driveway. The tenant has no access to the house or garden. No part of the house is ever shared, so you have exclusive use of Kipling Residence. DRIVEWAY Thank you for NOT parking in our driveway as our city garbage and recycling people need easy access the bins at the side of the house. The street is narrow and at times challenging to get the car out easily. The drive way is also available for the tenant, so please refrain from parking in the drive way. PARKING OPTIONS: park right in front of our house, across the street in front of our drive way, or in front of the baseball park (across the street). The neighbors on either side of us prefer to park their cars in front of their own home, we ask our guests and any visitors of our guests to respect this. Thank you in advance. RECYCLING We are huge components for recycling, our binder provides details as to what to do with plastic bags (non recyclable), kitchen scraps, blue bin recycling of hard plastic, bottles, cans and paper. Pick up is Wednesdays. CHILDREN As I don't have young children anymore, we do not have cribs, high chairs etc. We have a few kids books and stuffies that are for guest use with little ones. Families with very young children please keep mind that we are not a baby-toddler proof home before booking. Our furniture and marks easily, especially our cream couch in the living room. We love having guests from all over the world including "locals" returning to their beloved city. Our home is your home, we trust every guest will treat Kipling Residence with what it is used to - with respect. We look forward to your booking with us!

The SpaceThis is a ground level suite with it's own entrance. There are two bedrooms, one with a king sized bed and the second has two twin beds in their own alcove/room, however, there is not a door. So far this has not been an issue, however, it is important for guests to know in advance in case privacy is a concern. I am 6'2" and find the suite comfortable in most areas. The walkway between the bathroom/kitchenette area is a little shorter, but once you come in to the living room and eating area it is regular ceiling height. The NeighborhoodThis neighbourhood is 10 minutes walk from Cook Street Village, Fernwood Village and Oak Bay Village, each with their own distinct flavour of shops, coffee shops, restaurants and pubs. 15 minute walk to the ocean and the view of the Olympic Mountains are just at the end of the street. Downtown is a ten minute walk down Fort Street, otherwise known as Antique Row. Getting AroundBuses stops are within two minutes walking distance and run regularly to all parts of the city.

I live in the lower suite, there about half the time in summer months and will look after property and maintenance. Not likely to be present in the winter months so looking for a 3 or 6 month lease. Special arrangements for leases. Minimum stay 7 days. THIS UNIT NOT AVAILABLE UNTIL FEB 5 2017 Guest AccessGuests have access to everthing: full work shop, private grape arbor for your morning coffees, sauna, hot tub, private sun tanning yard, (or sunlamp) two secluded shaded swings for quiet conversations, 3 covered decks with outside bar, bar-b-que, bicycles. Kids can even sleep outside. The back yard is totally safe; no public access except through the house. (9 ft fences) .Laundry facilities are located off the new stainless steel gas kitchen equipped with every small kitchen appliance a great chef will ever need , 3 flat screen TVs plus one at hot tub will keep you informed and up to date. Also included are book shelves loaded with exceptional table top publications of rare and very interesting topics . You are not in a 'rental' unit here. You are in my home... minus my toothbrush. That's all I took when I moved out. Interaction with GuestsYour happy stay is my advertising: I will do everything I can to make your stay memorable and have you back. A Realtor for 35 years, and eating 3 meals a day for 14 years in the locaI restaurants (can't cook) I know the city well. I have a separate suite, but will provide as much interaction as guests would like . downtown limo pickup and drop off for dinners out, party runs, or just shopping. Just let me know how I can be of service . I will help make your stay enjoyable any way I can. Generally available 24/7 (when I am in town). I am a very easy going guy. (Buying a residence on the island? Stay here free when you use our Real Estate services). The NeighborhoodVery light commercial warehousing till 4 pm, then empty streets till 8am. More peace and quiet one would ever expect ANYWHERE in the city. The area is very safe. Minutes walk to everything you would need including: KFC, Starbucks, Dennys, the Legion, Travel Lodge, specialty shopping, huge Mayfair mall, Walmart Centre, Uptown mall or an intimate breakfast at a small mom and pop restaurant ($5.95). Walk to anything, bike or bus. Getting AroundDouglas Street is the city's main route north and south and the bus (5 minute walk away) runs every few minutes. Transfers are available to anywhere in the city. The buses move as fast as any private vehicle and rates are a low $2.50 (even all the way to Sidney). Cabs, with tip, are $12.00 to downtown venues or with a refundable deposit, I have bicycles available. The famous Galloping Goose Trail, next door, will take you from Sooke to Sidney or down town Victoria. (Walking or pedal bikes only) However, anytime I can be of service, I would be more than happy to provide local transportation (you don't drink and drive in Victoria unless a $4,000.00/nite cold city cell is on your bucket list.) You will have perfectly safe off -street parking right at my front steps. Other Things to NoteWhile you are here, you will be the only guests. Because of location and shortage of neighbors, noise is not a problem unless it`s 2 am and I am trying to sleep (best to invite me) The rear yard is great for entertaining. Hot tub, sauna, shaded swings, piped in music (all kinds), TV, outside bar, , Bar b que, sun tanning, darts, o/s meals- you're the cook, totally private. You will probably spend the better part of your day right here. I built it for lovers ( although I've yet to find one)(Front photo is local restaurant)
