“Everything you could want in a vacation rental and more.”

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying in this fabulous rental whilst in Victoria visiting friends and family. It is well appointed, in fact it had everything I needed for cooking at home as well as entertaining. The furnishings are tasteful and have the feel of quality, something I find a rarity in our experience. We tend to visit Victoria annually and hope to make this James Bay retreat our home away from home.

As others have already pointed out, the location is very convenient and you could not wish for better hosts. Bravo to Delia and Jack for the haven they have created.

“Fantastic House, Great Location and Helpful Hosts!”

We had the pleasure of staying at this James Bay house for four nights it was exactly like the pictures you see clean, modern, comfortable, and a pleasure to come home to each night. There were two couples in our party so we especially appreciated the two bedrooms and two bathrooms upstairs. The location was perfect within walking distance to most things in Victoria. We felt very safe wondering around on our own. Delia, one of the owners, was great to work with and I felt like she went above and beyond to make sure that our stay was a good one. She provided us with tasty dining suggestions ahead of time so that I could make reservations and included must-see attractions like Whale Watching and Butchart Gardens. Both are definitely worth experiencing by the way. We enjoyed the Blue Fox Cafe for breakfast, II Terrazzo for Italian food, and Zambris for margaretta pizza. Everyone in Victoria was extremely friendly and helpful we really had a wonderful time and would stay here again if in Victoria.

“Perfect!”

In a word, “perfect”! The accommodations are as great as the web photos indicate. Not only is the house beautifully decorated, it is also very comfortable. The living area downstairs has every convenience item imaginable and is perfectly set for relaxing or entertaining. Upstairs, the beds are comfortable; there is ample closet space including a walk-in closet, a fabulous shower with sauna, and significant space between the bedrooms so you do not feel crowded even if you are more than 2 people sharing the space. All of this, AND a beautiful backyard and BBQ for your private use.

The location, too, is perfect being so close to Beacon Hill Park, Dallas Road, the beaches, downtown, and the famous Beacon Hill Drive-In, where a daily ice cream is a must!

Last, but by no means least, Delia and Jack are the perfect hosts. Their attention to detail extends well beyond maintaining the beautiful space, to ensuring that you, personally, have everything you need.

If you are planning a trip to Victoria, look no further for your accommodations; you have found the perfect place!
