“Location, View and Location”
I spent a month at this beautiful lake house and just loved my time here. The house is gorgeous and everything you could possibly need is provided. The owner says she’s a ‘stickler’ for details and you can really tell she’s thought of everything you may want. The kitchen even had a crock pot and magic bullet. The yard and lake are stunning. There are so many cozy places to sit; under the wisteria, on the dock, by the outdoor stove, under the apple tree. We really enjoyed the apples and all the creatures that seemed to want apples every day. The rabbits, deer, birds and squirrels were plentiful, I even saw a mink. The house is so private and located in a quiet cul du sac that it is hard to believe you can walk to the grocery store and movie theater in 20 minutes. There are so many beautiful walks and trails around different lakes where you can leave straight from your door and don’t need to drive anywhere. We even walked to Goldstream provincial park to watch the salmon run. We rented bikes for $3 an hour at the community center, located a few minutes away, and biked on a dedicated path called ‘The Galloping Goose’ that went straight into downtown Victoria. East Sooke Regional Park is about 20 minutes away and had tons of beautiful coastline hiking. Even after a month visit there were still parks I hadn’t gotten to yet, there are just so many around that area. If you are looking for peace, scenery and a perfect home base to explore the area stay at the lake house. I just can’t say enough great things about it!
“A beautiful home in a great setting.”
Our weekend was wonderful. The house was very comfortable and the yard was wonderful for our two puppies. The lake is beautiful and we found some trails nearby to walk the dogs. There is also a dog exercise area within a couple minutes' walk.
“Best Thanksgiving Ever!”
Spent 5 wonderful days at this absolutely perfect location in mid-October! Weather was perfect to enjoy all the amenities as advertised - enjoyed sitting on the dock for drinks in the afternoon, as well as cruising on the motorized dock while our turkey dinner was cooking! We had dessert on the heated patio in front of a roaring campfire! Later in the week we walked over to Glendale Meats and found many delicious appetizers (you have to try the jalapeno cheddar chicken bites), and steaks for the bbq. The indoor pellet stove was very comfortable in the evening. Bicycle rentals are reasonable ($3 per hour) at the City Centre Park (just a short walk) and we went for a bike ride around the lake. Goldstream Provincial Park is closeby and we walked the trails to see "Niagara Falls" and climbed Mount Finlayson. Janette has definitely thought of every detail to make guests feel welcome and accommodated in every way at this home away from home!
This was our first time using FlipKey and found this gem of a house. As soon as we walked in, it felt comfortable and charming and warm. The owner went above and beyond in decorating, providing everything we could possibly need and was quick to help us out if we needed anything. The floating dock was the icing on the cake. Drinking our coffee while slowly floating around the lake, watching Canadian Geese and a bald eagle fly over us while watching the sun rise..can it get any better? Yes it can. In the evenings, we would cook up steaks on the outdoor bbq sitting by the outdoor fireplace watching for deer in the meadow. This spot is one of a kind and we look forward to coming back and staying here again.
Thank you so much to Janette for the most wonderful stay at her property, well located, just 10 minutes or so outside Victoria. Her house is very comfortable and equipped to a high standard. We were greeted with chocolates in every room and she had kindly left some key provisions to help us through our first couple of days. Outside the property is a lovely back garden right on a lake and we were visited by deer and humming birds. It is very tranquil but so close (5 min) to all key necessities such as a supermarket and cinema. A special thank you to Janette - we left a jacket and dress pants behind and without hesitation, she agreed to post them on...really kind and indicative of the care and attention she puts into renting her home. Wholeheartedly strongly recommended!!
“Listen to the Quiet”
Listen to the Quiet What a peaceful retreat! We had a wonderful stay, enjoyed the views, walked down to the lake, enjoyed the comfort of the peaceful sleeps, warm floors, oh yes and the View! So convenient to the amenities too! We will be back, yes we will. Thank you Janette.
“It was a great vacation, and a beautiful stay!!”
The rental was very welcoming, feel right at home, and very clean. The property is beautiful day and night, between the birds, wildlife, and view, the surroundings were as if you were in the Country! We really enjoyed floating on the dock, and swimming in the lake. Location was good, close to all amenities (grocery stores, shopping and restaurants), and not a far drive from downtown Victoria, or Sooke. Janette was very accommodating, and great to deal with!
We spent 4 nights here. Very calm, peaceful and relaxing... exactly what we needed. Janette met us and was excellent at showing us around. Loved the deer and the hummingbirds. Sitting under the vines, overlooking the lake is priceless! We come to Victoria often for work and would stay here rather than a hotel any day!
We spent four nights at the Shoreview Getaway and it was absolutely perfect for our group. The house was spotless and was the best stocked of any vacation rental I've ever stayed at. She's thought of everything! We loved the yard and the fireplace and spent as much time as possible outside. We enjoyed seeing the local wildlife including deer, rabbits and an adorable otter when we took the floating dock out for a spin. We will definately rent this house again. Thanks Janette!
