Our house is in Victoria, the capital of British Columbia, located at the southern tip of Vancouver Island. It is located on a quiet cul de sac, near to the University of Victoria.

Our house is in a quiet neighbourhood, on a cul de sac. It is on three floors. It has verandas to the front and one side, and pleasant gardens front and back. In the back is a large patio with furniture for outdoor dining. There are comfortable places to sit outdoors in sun or shade at all times of the day.

There are four bedrooms: one with each of the following beds - king, queen, double, twin. There are full bathrooms on two floors and half bathroom on the third.

The house is the neighbourhood of the University of Victoria, and is conveniently located for amenities - shops (ten minute walk), bus routes (5 mins), and park with swimming pool and tennis courts (5 -10 minute walk). There are beaches and a wild mountain park within 15 minute drives. Also there is a public golf course about the same distance.

It takes 15-20 minutes to reach downtown Victoria, by car or bus.
