The Gorge Waterway Guesthouse is a loft-style, one bedroom suite (600sq/ft) with full kitchen, bathroom, laundry and private entrance.

The guesthouse is located on the top floor of our garage - it bright, airy and has great neighbourhood and sunset views!

Close to downtown, but also close to out of town, our location is perfect for those seeking to experience Victoria and the rest of the island.

Cleaning Fee is $60

The space
The guesthouse has vaulted ceilings and big south/west facing windows that bring in lots of natural light and make the old growth fir floors glow. The neighborhood views are surprisingly nice - offering a relaxing vista to the south and west - sunsets and cloudscapes are great here. Open the windows in summer to let in the fresh salt-touched breeze.

The fully outfitted kitchen features an full size range, fridge, convection microwave oven and dishwasher. A bar-top with surprisingly comfy barstools provide a super convenient dining area.

There is a wall mount smart-TV with wifi and netflix all setup. The couch is perfectly positioned to sit back and enjoy the evening light and also catch a flick or two on the tube.

The space comes with all linens and towels, toilet paper, soap etc. The kitchen is stocked with dishes, tools and utensils and if there something that you want to cook up and don't see the tool, we likely have one just next door.

We are a friendly family and happy to chat and lend advice to guests. We will likely be living in our home at the time of your visit. The suite is connected to our home via an internally locked fire rated door at the lower level. On the living level however, the suite is built as a completely separate building so sound transmission should be very minimal.

The neighbourhood is very quiet and has a residential vibe. A short walk down the street affords you access to the Gorge Waterway Park - which is a great place to walk any time of the day.

Public transit is accessed half block away in either direction. If you're into biking, we are about a 10 minute ride from the Galloping Goose Regional Trail network - which affords access to a huge amount of riding area. We can offer secure storage for your bikes free of charge.

On-street parking is free.

Where you’ll be

Victoria, British Columbia, Canada

The Gorge waterway area is a great part of Victoria. We're a residential neighbourhood, but within a 10 minute drive of downtown Victoria, 15 minutes to UVic and 5 minutes from Victoria General Hospital (depending on traffic).

We are an active family of four who enjoy this location as much as you will. We spend a great deal of time on and by the ocean, fishing, boating, hiking or staying close to home rooting around in the garden and cooking gourmet meals for family and friends. Our location is ideal: close to the city and vibrant urban culture of Victoria yet also very close to out of town and fast access to the natural beauty of Vancouver Island's amazing parks. Our guesthouse offers everything we'd look for ourselves: the comforts and amenities of home with the luxury feel of a boutique hotel! We are so privileged have this home business as every booking helps Nancy stay home with the children while also enjoying the rewards of running a professional guesthouse - both jobs she does with love, care and attention to the little things!
