Luxury Waterfront Experience in Victoria

Historic Victoria cottage in Esquimalt with outdoor pool
You access your 1 bedroom cottage down a path, which takes you to the water's edge of The Gorge Waterway! You will feel as though you are in your in a slice of heaven!

Our waterfront cottages all have a private entrance and deck. We designed this cottage with Victoria in mind - from the photo of the Mile 0 marker, or that of a resident harbour seal who'll watch you make your morning coffee, to some of the capital city's iconic imagery in the custom bathroom wall paper. We've thought through the details so carefully that you just might find yourself so at home that you start giving tourists directions to the Butchart Gardens. 

We have 8 beautiful and inspired waterfront cottages that are set up for short term guests, each with a different design focus. You have water views from the living space and can enjoy the same views while sitting on your own private deck.

Local, Mariner, Paddler, Nature Lover, Sea Creature, Nomad, Muse or A-Lister! Take your pick! Each cottage has unique art and decorations.

Great rental
Clean, convenient to downtown Victoria and also surrounding areas. Agent very responsive to any inquiries. Wonderful view. Well equipped. We missed a microwave, but got by.

Charming little cottage.
What a cute little cottage on the water. The layout and decor inside was fantastic for the two of us. The sunken bedroom was a neat touch. Everything was spotless, and the location on the water was unique! If you're looking for downtown Victoria activities this might be a bit farther away than some folks might want. For us it was perfect as we were just in town to visit friends. A great alternative to tiny hotel rooms as this has all the comforts of home. Loved the live edge dining table. We'll definitely be coming back again.

So relaxing, peaceful, wonderful!

Beautiful cottage
I loved sitting on the balcony and watching the geese swim up and down the inlet. The walk around the inlet is stunning.

5/5 Excellent

Simple and relaxing
Was only there for a few nights, but it was a great clean, quiet and simple place which is what I was looking for. Design and style was clean and modern. Wasn’t over packed with filler. Only thing I’d like to see is a blender of some sort as I’m always making smoothies, which I couldn’t do here. In saying that I would definitely stay here again. Thanks for a great experience. Cheers Scott
