Description from owner

Does being by the water relax you? Then welcome to 8 Woodville Place, situated in View Royal, minutes from downtown Victoria and the Western Communities.

Our fully furnished one bedroom, one bathroom basement walkout suite is the perfect place to relax-perfect for 2 people! We are located on Price Bay, adjacent to Esquimalt Harbour and the ocean. The waterviews are always changing - Seals, eagles and osprey, herons, geese, ducks, and otters are some of the sights that await you during the daylight hours. A set of binoculars are a must! At night, you'll see the reflection of lights from the Esquimalt Shipyards across the Bay and the twinkling of lights from the homes nestled in the trees around Price Bay.

We are situated just off Highway 1 north in a quiet little cul de sac shared with one other home. Whether its shopping, biking, kayaking, gambling, golfing ... we're close to everything!

Beds: 1 King Bed, 1 Sofa Bed

“Great views”

Reviewed 31 Jul 2016

I don't think you can find a better place to stay in Victoria at this price. Very comfortable furniture and bed. Large rooms and everything you need for a comfortable stay. You have access to a very nicely landscaped backyard. You can eat all your meals outside your door on the covered patio and enjoy the views of Price Bay. Comfortable seating outside to sit and enjoy a glass of wine and take in your beautiful surroundings. Judy and Dan are great hosts and ensure you have a enjoyable stay. Close to Victoria and the Galloping Goose trail way is minutes away.

Owner's reply: Thanks for your kind words Ken. We're so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Being by the water is so relaxing and its nice to be able to sit outside or down on the dock and feel all your stress just melt away! You certainly took advantage of all that the area offers and we hope we'll have an opportunity to see you again. Take care. Judy and Dan

“Home Away From Home”

Reviewed 26 Apr 2016

Cozy comfy and clean! Truly a home away from home. Minutes from Victoria and surrounded by all the outdoor activities the Island has to offer. Judy and Dan are welcoming and helpful from the moment you contact them. Judy has thought of everything you might need to make your stay more enjoyable. A very relaxing environment watching the the ocean tides and the sun rise and set all from the comfort of your patio. Our only complaint is that we only stayed a week. We won't make that mistake again. Don't miss out on this little piece of heaven.

Owner's reply: Suzanne, thanks so much for your wonderful review. We are so pleased you enjoyed everything as we really try to anticipate and meet the needs of our guests. Its the perfect place to relax. We enjoyed meeting you both and look forward to hopefully seeing you again. Take care.

“exceptional”

Reviewed 19 Aug 2013

The property was well cared for and the setting is beautiful. The location is very central to all activities on the Island (10 mins. to city center and not much more to Butchart Gardens) Plan 2 weeks as there is too much to do in Victoria. The hosts are great people and have thought of just about everything--staying there is like home and it is very spacious.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much Pam for the lovely review. We're glad you enjoyed your 'home away from home'. Too bad the weather didn't cooperate. We really enjoyed having you both here and look forward to seeing you on future visits. Take care.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

"We experienced wonderful peace and quiet during our stay here. Our hosts made us feel at home from the moment we arrived. The kayaks, the bay, the 'Goose Trail', Thetis Park, convenient shopping and the comfortable furniture all added to our enjoyment. We plan to be back next summer."
Gary and Kendra L

"Been here two weeks and it has so flown by - a measure indeed of the comfort and ease of living in such an open home and having a majestic outlook to greet us in bed and soaking up the different light reflecting from the water. We have been able to relax and enjoy your wonderful environment from morning to night." Glyn and Olwen H

"The calming movement of the water, the cooling effect of the wind, and the warmth of the sun have all added to the retreat you have created here for guests. Thank you for your hospitality." Joanne G

"What a wonderful week. We truly enjoyed the super view and the birds that were an everchanging joy. We found the suite to be so comfortable and the location was great for exploring the island." Bonnie D and Andrea F

"Thank you again for opening your lovely and cozy home to our family. A memorable birthday, watching and admiring the shining beauty of the rising full moon over calm thoughtful reflecting water. It is surely an atmosphere we can't duplicate every year!" David and Patina A

We've had such an adventurous stay in Victoria. Your home was a comfort to come back to at the end of each day's outing. We enjoyed our early morning coffee and abundance of sunshine overlooking the bay. We were blessed with spectacular weather. You have been perfect hosts. Some day we hope to be back and perhaps share a friendship.
Susan and Richard W

We have thoroughly enjoyed our week here. The blackberries were great, the view and socializing with Portia. We will be in touch and plan to see you next year.
Pam and Max D

We have had the most inquired le experience here! What a beautiful home you have. The view, the location, and the accommodations could not have been more perfect. We've had the time of our lives. Thank you for your hospitality and kindness - it has been so, so appreciated. Thanks again.
Calan and Claire L

So glad I found this gem! Great location. Lovely private and peaceful waterfront setting with a wonderful view. Spacious, comfortable and well equipped suite. Thank you for being so friendly and welcoming. I've really felt relaxed and at home here - a true Victoria haven! See you next visit.
Joan L

These 2 weeks have really been the medicine we've both needed. Your home is a haven of rest...all is peace here. I am so relaxed you could "spread me like butter!" We have appreciated your friendship and kindness and hope we see you again next time we need a retreat!
John and Maisie W

I find myself procrastinating with the packing-up this morning...I am enjoying another breakfast outside overlooking the lagoon in warm sunshine. Thank you for opening your house to travellers. #8 Woodville is a fantastic location for the likes of me: Galloping Goose right across the road, East Sooke Park within an hours drive, Victoria within 1/2 hour etc. I have also appreciated the comfort and privacy.
