“First visit to Victoria, B.C.”

We went to Victoria to celebrate our daughter's wedding. We found Oaklands 8 online and the price was right. We could not believe what a beautiful place it was. All self-contained and quiet. The owners were there to greet us and show us around. We stayed a week and felt at home every minute of every day.

Liked best: How secluded and quiet it was after a busy day.
Liked least: The bed was very comfortable, but was a full size and we are accustomed to a king.

Thanks for your review! New to this aspect of the Flipkey-Tripadvisor system so I'm a bit behind in acknowledgements--and our appreciation is sincere! It was a great pleasure to welcome you to Victoria and Oaklands 8--and to know that you felt comfortable and at home for your celebrations. Unfortunately the double bed is NOT a king and we do see that a LOT of visitors have kind size beds at home. When time to replace this still new bed, we'll definitely upgrade to a Queen size!

“Warm and Unique”

What a lovely place in a very interesting neighborhood filled with little gardens and bungalows. John and Rob have made a wonderfully efficient and tasteful apartment. They also have a dearly loved and maintained garden, which is a delight. John's recommendations for restaurants and public gardens and beaches were indeed spot on. Both hosts are delightful, and the space is private and quiet with easy access to the harbor and waterfront. It was great to be in a neighborhood that was more locally focussed, and visit the more tourist-y areas selectively followed by retreating to our sweet space. Lovely to be in a place that is so soulful.

One of the joys of welcoming guests is to find a shared love of gardens and experiencing a place beyond the well trod path. So glad our suggestions hit the mark--easy to do with so much nearby, but you inspired us!

This apartment was perfect for us. John made us feel welcome right from the start and was wonderful in all respects. The garden is beautiful, as well. If you have an opportunity be sure to ask Rob to see the back and the other adjacent properties. It is very evident that two artists have worked on the design.. Rob in the garden and John on the interior.

This is a quiet, funky, residential neighbourhood, not far from downtown Victoria. We enjoyed a variety of different walks from our door. The blossoms were out, so it was particularly colorful. There are a number of good little restaurants within walking distance. The recommendations John provided were 'right on'.

We enjoyed the space and the design of the apartment. It was very comfortable. The kitchen was stocked with some of the basics, it was very convenient to have a washer and drier. The entire place was was practical, and very 'smart' .

The backyard and surrounding gardens, and entire Ferndale area, make it an ideal place for any artist, or anyone wanting to relax and see something different. We loved it!

The only thing better than the charming apartment was the warm hospitality of both John and Rob. It was a most memorable stay and one we hope to repeat someday soon.

Thanks so much for the kind comments - it is always a pleasure to share our love for this great area (which is actually the Oaklands Rise near Fernwood). Rob and I enjoyed your visit - welcome back anytime!
