A perfect location for business or pleasure, our little haven tucked in the peaceful, residential neighbourhood of James Bay offers a home away from home environment for travellers.

Vacationing? You will be close to the many fabulous things and views Victoria offers.

Visiting Victoria for business and/or studies? You will enjoy your peaceful environment to come home to after a long day with plenty of space to stretch out and relax or to continue your work in comfort!

The space

As the name describes, this light filled and airy room is designed with tranquility in mind!

After exploring or working, curl up in the queen size bed with plump as well as memory foam pillows and a wonderful goose down duvet. Or, if you prefer, escape up to the loft and get cosy in the sleep/meditation space on a twin bed with comfy pillows and goose down duvet

You will have your own blow dryer, towels and cotton robes. There is hanging room for clothes as well as an area equipped with Brita water, coffee maker, kettle, coffee, herbal teas, cups, glasses and utensils.

Sit in the comfortable wicker bistro chairs, with a small table, and enjoy a meal or catch up with friends and family far away with the use of our secure WiFi

The large shared bathroom located next to your room is filled with natural light and has a bathtub with shower. There is also makeup wipes, shampoo, conditioner, body wash for guest use.

Guest access

Our large property has many common areas for guests to enjoy.

There is an communal upper back deck with a comfortable couch and the backyard is a community space for all our guests. There is a outside table for meals as well as a recent addition, a small BBQ. During the season there are garden goodies that we encourage guests to enjoy.

You are welcome to use the kitchen for cooking as well as the washer/dryer.
There is designated space in the fridge for keeping your things cold and we offer cream and milk for the coffee and teas in your room. We also keep things available for guests to enjoy in the cupboards.

Interaction with guests

I or my hostess is always available in person or by message. When home from one of my adventures, I am always excited to meet new people as I love to travel myself. Sharing stories of our travels is the best part.

Each space in the house offers privacy or, if you wish, the chance to get to know other travellers in the communal spaces.

Other things to note

We love our cats and they are a big hit with guests as well! They have their own outside Catio space, nap in the backyard and in colder weather, are in the communal parts of the house. If you wish to have their company, just leave your door open when home and they will be happy to visit. If not, keep your door closed and say just hi when you feel like it.

Please respect the house quiet time after 10pm. We are a working house and people do get up quite early but we try and ask guests to try to be quiet for those who like to sleep in.

This is a great place to stay. It's near downtown and a lovely walk into the city centre. Street parking made things much easier. The cats were super friendly and fun to have around, but they don't enter your rooms, which is very nice! Would recommend this place.

Muriel greeted us out front upon arrival to give us a tour of her beautiful Airbnb. She gave us amazing hospitality and made us feel both at home. The zen room is a gorgeous space for a getaway! Bonus points for the private coffee station in the room!!

The room was a great size and had a very comfortable bed. The house is super cute with a gorgeous garden area. The place was great and close enough to walk to downtown.
