Sleep to the sounds of a running stream and wake to the smells of the rainforest. A block from the ocean, and 1 mile from Butchart Gardens, this sweet one bedroom suite is fully equipped to be your home away from home.
Surrounded by rainforest, this comfortable suite on a cul-de-sac is around the corner from the ocean. Your own covered patio awaits you rain or shine to enjoy the sounds of the nearby stream and the wildlife it attracts.
A one bedroom suite perfect for a couple, with cedar wainscotting, red brick, soft grey walls, updated 3-piece bathroom.
This 500 sq ft walk-out garden suite is complete with a comfortably stocked kitchen. (Toaster, coffee maker, teapot, small slow cooker, microwave, full size fridge, stove/oven, spices, condiments, cooking oil, coffee, sugar, tea). The dining area seats 4 and the comfortable living room with brand new sectional couch has a large plasma TV. Through double French doors is your private covered patio with seating for 4 and a hammock. While sipping your coffee outside, you overlook majestic old growth west coast trees and spot wildlife while listening to the creek that runs through our property just below. We've recently undertaken a large landscaping project to the backyard and we are excited to share it with you!
The bedroom has a brand new Sealy Posturepedic pillow top Queen bed with ensuite and shower. The new living room sofa bed converts to a firmer queen-sized bed. Please note, as the bathroom is connected via the bedroom, the suite is best suited to one couple or a young, small family. All bed linens and towels provided. Board games are available and a playpen, high chair, child backpack carrier (perfect for visiting Butchart Gardens or beachcombing) and a small selection of toys are available on request. Picnics are a wonderful way to enjoy Butchart so we have a picnic basket available for you to pack!
The backyard is very private and is also home to resident deer, squirrels, hummingbirds and 5 of our own heritage hens in their cute chicken coop. The chickens will not need any of your attention unless you choose to go say hi. They love treats like leftover oatmeal, greens and berries! Guests should also note we have a very small dog; the dog does not ever live in the suite.
Guests will have private access to the suite through the double French doors at the rear of our property. The vintage light-lit patio is for the exclusive use of the suite and you are also welcome to share in the enjoyment of our backyard. Shared laundry is available. Parking on the street is plentiful and check-in is super easy and flexible!
The suite is ground level entry with a maximum of three steps down to the entrance walkway.

Our dream for several years was to create a family friendly hostel; AirBnb has given us a unique opportunity to explore this. We have thoroughly enjoyed meeting and hosting guests from all over the world at our home! We respect their privacy while ensuring guests have everything they need to enhance their stay in our beautiful community.
We loving using AirBnb to travel as well. When we vacation, we love to immerse ourselves in the local culture and scene, to live as the locals do! Quiet, and smoke and drug free, we are conscientious guests who treat any place we stay, even better than our own!
