1 star 2 star 3 star 4 star 5 star   Rating: 5 / 5 Peaceful location in a busy place 2 Sep 2018
This cottage is a great retreat from the hustle of James Bay during tourist season, You get the best of two worlds staying here. The gardens around the house are perfect to sit in for a morning coffee, and you can witness the quiet peace a gardens brings to your world, from busy bees to humming birds doing their daily chores, or the odd person walking by and nodding a good old BC "good morning". Down the road the activity starts, from the barge, the occasional cruise ship, horse drawn carriages and the miles of water front to walk and explore. With a 15 minute walk you can be at the inner harbor and all the things it has to offer, same goes for Beacon Hill Park. The owner is a perfect host, This cottage is worth the stay if adventure and greater Victoria are in your sites. Cottage itself was very clean, two room one with 2 single beds and one with a queen size. Kitchenette and bathroom, plus a living room. Not hard to recommend this place to anyone.

My husband, our 8 year old daughter, and I spent a week here in August 2018. We were very comfortable. It’s such a quiet street and everything we needed was provided in the cottage. It was great being able to walk to everything we needed, and it was nice walking to Ogden Point for a morning coffee. It was a pleasure meeting the owner. We hope to come back sometime!

We spent a week at the cottage at the beginning of July. The owner greeted us as we arrived. She was very welcoming and showed as around and gave us local information. We would recommend a stay. The cottage was very comfortable and had everything you would need for your stay. The location of the cottage is great, 10 minutes by car to Victoria and a minute walk to the ocean. We loved our stay.

1 star 2 star 3 star 4 star 5 star   Rating: 5 / 5 Wonderful cottage and so close to everything. 24 Jun 2018
This James Bay Cottage is lovely. The cottage has a great lay-out, is nicely updated, well maintained and very clean. The kitchen is spacious and conveniently stocked, bed was very comfortable, gardens out front and back are beautiful. We love the location, just steps to the ocean and easy access to everything. The area is very quiet with exception to the occasional function at the hall across the street. The owner was very honest to inform us of this before we booked. We didn't mind the Jamaican music on one night of our 7 day stay and they were quiet by 11pm.
A great stay and we highly recommend this James Bay Cottage.

We enjoyed our stay in this cozy cottage that was very clean and well taken care of. The gardens are lovely. We loved the bright bathroom with the skylight. The location was so close to a walk every morning along the ocean.
The owner was very kind, informative, and provided us with everything we needed for our week in the cottage.
We would definitely rent this place again!

The cottage was very clean with all the amenities, very comfortable. We were in time for fresh tomatoes from the lovely cottage garden. There was a bonus array of homegrown apples. We walked to the waterfront restaurants and were able to sit on benches to watch passenger ships come into Ogden Point. The weather also cooperated and was warm and sunny. We put the heat on only once to take the chill off.

My husband and I spent 12 nights and it absolutely met all our needs from the comfortable beds to the fully stocked kitchen. The owner met us with a tour and a bowl of strawberries from her beautiful garden. We definitely will be back... when we retire permanently to the Island!

We had an amazing week in this beautiful Cottage, it's a hop skip and a jump from the ocean walking distance from lots of amenities. The owner is just lovely she is trustworthy and I can't praise the comfort and cleanliness in this cottage enough! If we visit Victoria again this is where we will stay in a heartbeat!!! Thanks Patricia for everything

Location, location, location! A short walk on a Gary Oak lined street to the amazing breakwater at Ogden Point. Comfortable and well-equipped cottage looking out on gorgeous gardens. Short drive via Cook Street to Fort Street to the Royal Jubilee Hospital. Funky little organic grocery nearby at Niagara and Government and short walk or drive to James Bay Village. A most gracious and accommodating hostess made this a memorable two-week stay. Would highly recommend it.

I stayed here with my two kids and my sister-in-law for a week in March 2016. I cannot say enough about how much we enjoyed it. The cottage is clean and very well appointed with lovely gardens to boot. We were able to walk everywhere - the ocean, downtown, etc., but it also provided a beautiful space to stay home and play games on some of the evenings. I have to admit - I wasn't sure I wanted to do a review - we'll definitely return in future and I'm worried it will be too busy! Highly recommend. The owner was very helpful and accommodating but unobtrusive nonetheless.

Victoria BC Vineyard Cottage - Cottage - 750 sq ft / 69 sq m - Ground level
Located in historic James Bay, this simple, comfortable cottage has everything you need to make yourself at home, combining the convenience of close proximity to downtown with the advantages of a quiet and picturesque neighbourhood. It's level walking everywhere.

You're less than a block away from the Dallas Road waterfront and the iconic Breakwater at Ogden Point. It's a 10 minute stroll to James Bay's commercial core with local shops (grocery store, liquor stores, laundromat, bank, pub, cafes, seniors' centre, pharmacy and walk-in medical clinic). Two blocks away you can rent DVDs.

The oldest park in Victoria, Beacon Hill Park, is a 20 minute walk away along the water or through the neighbourhood. The Inner Harbour, Seattle and Port Angeles ferry terminals are a 15 minute walk; and it’s perhaps 25 minutes on foot to the downtown core. You’re likely to pass horse drawn carriages as they make their way through the leafy neighbourhood on the way to downtown.There is residential street parking, and conveniently close bus service.

We received an almost immediate confirmation from the owner which made our planning much easier. The cottage was beautifully decorated, immaculately clean, well equipped and so quaint. We very much appreciated the thoughtful touches of fresh strawberries left for us directly from the owner's garden. Very close to the ocean and downtown and quiet with a great atmosphere and the local surroundings are idyllic. The host Pat has lots of knowledge of Victoria and supplied brochures, maps and she even clipped out info for things my daughter would have interest in. The cottage is an ideal base to explore further surroundings in Victoria and abroad the island. Thank you Pat for our perfect holiday, we had a brilliant time!

We have had the pleasure of staying in the ....Cottage twice and will do so again. It is by far the cleanest place we have ever stayed and Pat is a wonderful hostess. The kitchen is completely stocked with everything one would require and there is the option of fresh herbs just outside the backdoor. There is wifi, television, a small library of reading material and the beds are so comfortable. We love that we can walk on the breakwater and watch the cruise ships dock, which are both a half block away. It is a nice walk to the Fisherman's Wharf and the Inner Harbour. The front yard garden is fabulous and we like to sit on the two adirondack chairs and take it all in. My husband and I would highly recommend staying at the ...Cottage.

We want to thank you so much for our wonderful stay at your cottage. We were very impressed with so many thoughtful conveniences that you provided. The well stocked kitchen with utensils, smallwares, cookware, small appliances right down to coffee filters, plastic wrap and napkins. So very thoughtful and very much appreciated. The cottage was spotless and so comfortable and such a beautiful garden and delicious strawberries.
