Dragonfly Cottage - Paradise by Beacon Hill Park.....

And if you’re looking for museums, heritage spots, or nightlife, downtown Victoria is just a short walk away.

With its mélange of antique furniture and modern accents, the eclectic designer decor invites you to settle in and relax. The cottage has beautifully sunlit and spacious rooms, with more than enough room for everyone. There is a choice of two or three bedrooms, each with their own unique atmosphere, and a lovely bathroom with a claw foot tub and shower.

We enjoyed our stay at Dragonfly Cottage very much. We've rented many vacation homes, and this was one of the best. Lovely home, great location, great kitchen and laundry. Lots of light and beautiful decor in the home, which I loved. Toula was an exceptional host!
Response from the owner Thank you for this lovely review, it was great to have you! See you soon. Toula
“Beautiful home, perfect location, wondeful owner!”
Faultless! Myself and my family rented Dragonfly cottage for the month of July 2013. We rented the whole property, including the optional 3rd double bedroom for our party of 6 adults and 1 infant. The house was beautiful and spacious, it was well equipt and had a really comfortable family feel. The location could not be better for exploring Victoria. Shops, bars, parks, the beach and the harbour/downtown are all within walking distance. We were made to feel so welcome by the owner, Toula. She lives in the upstairs appartment and was the perfect host. She was on call to help whenever we needed and left a lasting impression on the whole family, a really wonderful lady. We hope to return to Victoria sometime soon but only if Dragonfly cottage is available!
Response from the owner Hello Martyn! How nice to get this review from you. Give my love to all, especially little Erin.
“Wow! What a house...”
A beautifully decorated home! Right next to Beacon Hill Park- a great park for kids. Toula was fantastic! Bottle of wine and chocolates upon arrival- even treats for our kiddos. Wow! Couldn't have asked for better accommodations. Would highly recommend this home.
Response from the owner Thank you Cindy! It was great to have you here and I'm looking forward to your next visit.
This was the most incredible place we have rented on vacation rentals. Toula was an incredible hostess, the location was fantastic and the home was over the top. Way to go
Response from the owner Thank you Dave, It was great to have you and your family stay with us and I'm looking forward to having you back again. Have a great summer! Toula
“Slice of Serene Heaven”
Dragonfly Cottage was not a disappointment. Toula over delivered on hospitality & accommodations. The suite was well appointed and felt like a home away from home. The location is also wonderful being a short walk to Cook Village, Beacon Hill Park and Downtown Victoria/Harbour. Cannot say enough good things.
Response from the owner Thank you Stephanie, It was a pleasure having you here and I`m looking forward to the next time you`re back! Toula
“Exceeded our expectations! Perfect for Vacation or Wedding Venue”
I found Toula's place online as we wanted to rent a home instead of a hotel room during our daughter's wedding in Victoria and we were not disappointed! It is so charmingly decorated. Bright, clean, cheery, inspiring. Toula made us feel very welcome with fresh flowers and even a bottle of wine and chocolates as she knew it was just me and my daughter on our last night together before the rest of the family arrived. She was very helpful. My daughter's and I loved the clawed bathtub . It was the perfect place for our Fri night rehearsal tea.The kitchen is fully appointed. The house and grounds were perfect for photos the next morning before we drove the bride and bridesmaids to the ceremony. The location is awesome: one house away from Beacon Hill Park , which is lovely, and lends itself to awesome photos also. Also, families will love the Children's Zoo there. Don't miss the "Running of the Goats"! And one or one and a half blocks walk down Pendergast Street takes you to "Cook Street Village" , a trendy area to have coffee, browse funky shops etc. And only minutes to downtown. The trails in Beacon Hill Park are amazing, and we did drive over to the other side of the park and had famous icecream at the Beacon Drive Inn on Douglas Street near Mile Zero, and beach access is right near there as well. Being able to bring our dogs was wonderful. We can't wait to go back! (it would be an excellent venue for our next women's book club!)
Response from the owner Hi Betty, Thank you for taking the time to write this review. I'm very happy to know that you and your family enjoyed yourselves so much. I loved having you all here for the wedding and felt privileged to be able to share in such a happy occasion. I can't wait to see the photos! And....I can't wait to have you and your friends here for your Book Club! Toula
My husband & two kids (age 1 & 3yrs) stayed for 1 week. From the minute we arrived Toula was warm & welcoming. The house is in an ideal location! Couldn't be better for a family with kids. We visited Cook Street Village everyday. Beacon Hill Park is "dragonfly's" backyard. The house is beautifully decorated!! The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you could possibly need. Toula had a playpen & highchair set up for my daughter. And she offered to babysit while we went out in the evenings!!! How awesome is that!! We appreciated that so much. The house was spotless when we arrived. The yard is gated off & has a lovely patio set. Toula had a lovely gift for us on arrival & a special gift for my son. We've been visiting Victoria yearly for 10 years & have always stayed at different places. Until now! We can't wait to visit again. There is no other place we will stay!!!
Response from the owner Hi Melissa, Thank you so much for this wonderful review. It was great to have you and your lovely family here .... it makes me happy to know you enjoyed yourselves so much. I'm looking forward to seeing you again next year! Toula
Our family stayed at Dragonfly Cottage recently, and I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone. The cottage is beautifully decorated, very comfortable, and everything works. (Unlike some rentals where we have stayed.) It is ideally located, right next to Beacon Hill Park and a little shopping center, close to downtown, but in a very quiet neighborhood. Toula is very nice and helpful. We would go back.
Response from the owner Hi Nancy, Thank you for this nice review. It was very nice to have you and your family stay here. I`m glad you had a good time and I`m looking forward to having you all back again soon. Toula
“Elegant, Tasteful, Perfectly Located - A wow!”
My husband and I had the good fortune of visiting our folks in Victoria who had rented the Dragonfly Cottage for the winter season. The cottage is located near the heart of downtown Victoria, close to beautiful Beacon Hill Park and just blocks from the ocean. Pubs, eateries, and coffee shops are a short walk away. Dragonfly Cottage has been upgraded with thoroughly modern touches--beautiful hardwood floors, oversized windows, simply but elegantly furnished. I commented to our folks several times of the cleanliness and good taste of the owners. We slept on the spare bed and even it was very comfortable. The cottage is warm and welcoming, decorated painted in cream colored ivories with black accents. Not only is the cottage furnished, but the owner has added lovely wall hangings, knickknacks in alcoves and displays. The living room and dining room are light and airy. There is a lovely and warm flow to the home and we were utterly comfortable--it was overcast during our stay in the early spring. For those who like to get out and about on foot, Dragonfly Cottage is located in the heart of a walkable neighbohood. Just a block or two, and you're at the park, the ocean, local pubs, neighborhood store, and a number of different retail establishments and businesses. Our folks loved the Cottage and their communications with the owner were great. We hope they plan to rent the home again. We'd love to come visit them and stay again at Dragonfly Cottage, as well. I can't imagine anyone renting the cottage who wouldn't feel relaxed and at home in such a cozy, tasteful, and quiet atmosphere. Truly Dragonfly Cottage was a "Wow!" experience and a jewel of a find by our folks. On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the best, we give it a 10 wholeheartedly.
Response from the owner Dear Margie, Thank you for your kind and generous words about Dragonfly. It was an absolute pleasure having your parents stay here for the winter. It gave me great joy to know they were enjoying themselves so much, and that they had the room to have visitors like yourselves. I missed them when they left and I look forward to having all of you back again very soon! Toula
“Great stay! Victoria is beautiful!”
We stayed here during our stay in Victoria, BC for american Thanksgiving, there were four of us and two dogs. Toula is very sweet and her home is absolutely beautiful! The location is prime, seconds walk to Beacon Hill Park and the dog beach, our pups loved it here. Also minutes from downtown, you don't really need a car at all. Toula lives upstairs and there are tenants downstairs but you would barely know that anyone was there, we did not see anyone come in or out during our three day stay. The house is sectioned off very neatly where the rental is on the main floor. We loved staying here and would definitely stay here again the next time we visit beautiful Victoria! Thanks Toula! :)
Response from the owner Thank you! It was great having you here. Hope to see you again soon. Toula
