“Beautiful home & host, everything in walking distance!”
Reviewed April 30, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We had a fabulous stay at Dragonfly Cottage - such a beautiful home and Toula is a very welcoming host. The wine and chocolates were so sweet (in more ways than one), and my daughter loved her special chocolate egg :-). The location was great. We did not use our car at all. Downtown was a 10 minute walk and Beaconhill Park just 2 minutes walk. Check out the goat stampede at Beaconhill Petting Zoo - it's the best things for small kids. We will certainly be back, hopefully in the Autumn.

“Beautiful furnished home near downtown”
Reviewed August 17, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Full equiped house decorated with beautiful details. You can feel at home and comfortable in this house. Few minutes to go to the centre and also to groceries and restaurants but also to the cost.

Toula warmly welcomed us and helped us whenever needed.

“Beautiful, comfortable and convenient!”
Reviewed February 3, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We enjoyed our brief stay at Dragonfly Cottage before the Christmas holidays. Toula has done an impressive job with the design and decor, creating a home that is functional, tasteful and very comfortable. The location is great and made for a perfect home base for our first trip to Victoria. We look forward to a return!

“Cosy Cottage in a fantastic location.”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Dragonfly Cottage is a little gem located a short walk from the Cook Street Village, with its nice restaurants and cafes, an even shorter walk to the lovely Beacon Hill Park and an easy walk to downtown Victoria. The Cottage is charmingly decorated with an eclectic mix of antiques and other collectables. The lounge and dining areas are very comfortable, light and airy and were a favourite place in the evenings after a long day sightseeing. The kitchen was amazing, equipped with absolutely everything you could need. The laundry was equipped with a new washer and dryer which was great for visitors like us who were away from home for a couple of months. It is beautifully maintained and impeccably clean. We should also mention the Cottage has free WiFi. My husband and I were travelling with friends and so we had the two bedroom option for the four nights of our stay. I can't comment on the larger bedroom but I have to say that our room was tiny, with a bed that really wasn't comfortable for two adults as it seemed small in both length and width. My husband and I are 5'9" and 5'2" respectively and not overweight so by no means large. Having said that, I did notice that the third room was much bigger with a larger bed which I'm sure would have been more comfortable. Our friends were very happy with their room which had a larger bed.
Toula is a charming hostess who helped advise us on all the wonderful things to see and do in the beautiful city of Victoria. We all enjoyed our stay immensely and hope we can return one day. We would also just like to mention that Bubby's Kitchen in the Cook Street Village had the best breakfasts we ever had on our entire holiday!

Thank you for your kind words about Dragonfly and our lovely neighbourhood Cheryl.

I'm sorry to hear that you were uncomfortable on the double-bed. I wish I had known and we could have opened the third bedroom for you. I want to know that my guests are always one hundred percent comfortable.
Next time you come we'll make sure things are perfect for your stay!

“Perfect Victoria Getaway - We'll be back!”
Reviewed September 10, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

The dragonfly cottage was the perfect setting for our weekend trip! My husband and I and 2 other couples got together for our first reunion in 5 years in Victoria and had the pleasure of staying in Toula's beautiful house.

The cottage is cozy, inviting, beautifully decorated, and Toula made a point of telling us when we arrived that it was for living in! The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed (minus of course the fresh groceries) which made cooking our own dinners a breeze. She also let us use her outdoor barbeque!

The bedrooms were also very comfortable and cozy. And she had provided lots of little thoughtful amenities like the chocolate she left us, throw blankets and pillows for snuggling up and keeping warm, and candles on the dining room table. One of my favorite parts was the indoor/outdoor front porch sitting area with blankets.

Toula our hostess was genuinely warm, helpful, and full of great ideas of things to do and places to see in the city. We walked pretty much everywhere as the location is very convenient - restaurants, shopping, the park, the water...everything is close by and the neighborhood is lovely.

We are already planning next year's reunion and hopefully will be able to come back to the Dragonfly Cottage!
