We booked this home for a group of graduating teens as a Grad retreat. The hosts were very accommodating and helpful to us. The home comes equipped with a hot tub outside which was kept clean and well maintained. The home enabled us to easily divide the kids into two groups, putting the girls upstairs in a luxurious master suite with its own bathroom which they all shared and the boys shared the Recreation room downstairs. The chaperons were able to have their own rooms to sleep in assuring that they were well rested.
The home has an open and spacious design which suited a large group like ours very well. We were able to all eat and fellowship together very comfortably in the beautiful dining and living room areas. The kitchen is very well laid out and comes with most of the consumable type items (spices, etc) one needs to cook as if you were at home in your own kitchen. The only complaint we had during our stay was that they were having issues with their oven heating up to temperature and it wouldn't cook our lasagna - we ended up using the BBQ to do the job and that worked excellent. We mentioned this to the owner and she was very apologetic and said that they would look into getting it fixed.
The location of the property is close to Victoria (an easy 15-20 minute drive) and also close to local shopping if you need to run out to pick up groceries or a few necessities. There is also a lovely walking trail just down the road from the house.
The owners of this property were both kind and thoughtful and I would have no reservations in recommending this vacation rental to my friends.
