    Property description
    Holiday Rental House – 
    2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
    Welcome aboard 'The Dandy HoBo', Victoria's most waterfront accommodation.

    Located on our private wharf in a sheltered harbour just past downtown Victoria, our houseboat is perfect for those who like something a little different (and really fun!). Lounge on our rooftop hammock or take the canoe for a paddle to one of Victoria's waterfront brewpubs. Bike or walk the galloping goose trail - a car-free pathway that takes you right downtown, from our doorstep. Swim right off the boat, or maybe tether one of our inner tubes to the dock and float around with a cold beverage!

    In the cooler months, the houseboat is a lovely spot to read a book or magazines over a cup of coffee. The boat is equipped with a wood stove, for ultimate coziness. It's also one of the best spots...

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay on the "Dandy Hobo." We were emailed clear and concise instructions as to where to find the key, etc... as the owner was not home when we arrived.
