The location was just perfect as it was close to all amenities and just so quiet and private! The landlords were very helpful and friendly!

“My home in Victoria”
Reviewed August 21, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

person found this review helpful

My wife, daughter and I spent four nights at the Most Fabulous Location in James Bay and maybe in Victoria.
Delia was the perfect host, everything we needed and then some was there and ready for us. She gave us the house tour and made good recommendations for our time spent in Victoria. Then other than a phone conversation she gave us our privacy, but let us know that we could call her at anytime.
The good thing is, she has everything so well prepared, that we needed no help.
We plan to return.

“Beautiful home in a great location just minutes from panoramic views of snow-capped mountains across the Pacific”
Reviewed April 3, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Delia was the perfect host - there to welcome us and make sure we had all the information we needed to make the most of our stay in Victoria - but otherwise left us to our own devices. Beautiful well appointed holiday home in a quiet and quaint corner of Victoria. An easy 10 min stroll into the harbour area, shops and cultural attractions or, 10 mins in the opposite direction for fantastic panoramic views across the Sound to snow capped mountains beyond.

Full range of local shops within 10 min walk with a great supermarket and Starbucks included....so you can easily manage without a car but we also enjoyed exploring beyond the city with a car rental. Take the drive out to the Sooke Potholes or the pebbly but lovely beaches on the way along the coast. In Victoria, the Fishermans Wharf and Museum of BC are must dos ( get a double ticket for the IMAX when you visit the museum).

“Who could ask for anything more?”
Reviewed July 4, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Delia's James Bay duplex is stunning and perfectly located for everything that we had planned to do. The photos on TripAdvisor don't do it justice. The backyard patio with its serene water fountain is where you want to be after an exhausting day of touring or golfing ....just add the wine. Definitely hope to return soon!

“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!”
Reviewed October 17, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

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.
