Waterloo Garden is a self-catered accommodation, where you are free to set your own pace and make the most of your holiday.

Whether you stay for a night, a weekend, a week, or a month, this beautiful, private garden suite contains everything you will need to ensure a fabulous and memorable stay. Your hosts, Ron and Cathie, will welcome you with open arms, but there will be no need for awkward conversations and interactions. Your hosts will be available to offer recommendations on dining, attractions, shopping, and more, but you will have the suite and garden all to yourself. 'A quiet, modern couples retreat for a revitalizing stay in beautiful Victoria. Every convenience imaginable in a 'home away from home' with a garden setting'. Dexter & Linda Boyd, Winnipeg Manitoba 'A bit if snow, some rainy days, but wonderful sunny ones too! All spent exploring this beautiful Island from China Beach to Land's End. And always waiting 'at home' was this beautiful suite and Ron & Cathie's helpful guidance/advice. Many thanks for their welcome and attention. We loved 'the garden'.

    So happy we booked here!

    We stayed at the Garden Suite for 5 nights and we couldn’t have found a more perfect spot. It is one of the few online rentals I’ve made that looks exactly like the pictures on the listing. It is “IKEA”-style furnished, with clean, modern, simple decor and cabinetry. The kitchen is the best stocked kitchen with almost every gadget you might want for cooking or baking (including a salad spinner!) Even the knives are sharp and the silverware is good quality. There is ample room in refrigerator and freezer for food and drinks. We were taking a 3 day class in a neighboring area, and loved being able to enjoy breakfast en-suite before heading out. Cathie even accommodated our gluten-free request and provided some items for breakfast for the first morning. There is a nice table and chairs (no cheap plastic ones here!) outside on the patio and it was warm enough one morning to have breakfast outside and enjoy the beautiful garden and trees. The bed was comfortable and we slept very well, thanks also to the quietness of the neighborhood and the hosts who live upstairs. We appreciated having laundry facilities to do a load before we headed up to the Comox Valley for a few days. The city was also easy to navigate (with Google maps) and we headed downtown most every evening to enjoy the delicious food that Victoria has to offer. The studio apartment was very clean, thanks to Cathie who takes care of that herself because she has such high standards. One can tell that she has made the Garden Suite a place where she would choose to stay on vacation! Being environmentally conscious (they provide recycling and composting info), they have motion detector lights that come on when approaching their garage and then side stairs and entry to the studio apartment below. My only suggestion, since we arrived in the dark and most evenings came back in the dark, is to have a garage light that stays on, so one can see to walk in the driveway. I highly recommend this property and we will definitely rebook should we find ourselves in Victoria in the future!

      Hidden Gem

      The hosts were overly accomodating as we were welcomed by homemade scones and jam and numerous other items in the refigerator left for us. The suite was immaculate and ever so cozy. A beauiful view out our window of their well kept garden. We couldn't of had a better experience anywhere else. Next time we return to Victoria I'm hoping we are fortunate that Ron & Cathie will have an availability. I gjve our stsy a 10 out of 10

        Charming, fabulously quiet garden retreat

        We were welcomed as soon as we stepped on the property and treated to a lovely garden view from our charming apartment. It is an open concept unit with a sleeping nook, a comfortable living room area and a very well-equipped kitchen area with eating counter and stools. There are also washing facilities. The hosts had anticipated our wishes, supplied breakfast food and were willing to assist with information. I wholeheartedly recommend this unit.

          More than what you expect

          Cathie and Ron welcomed us with open arms and the fresh baked goods and home made preserves were such a nice surprise. On our first night Ron surprised us with fresh corn on the cob for dinner! They are such a lovely couple and we thoroughly enjoyed our chats with them. The suite was the perfect size and offered all the amenities we needed to make our stay comfortable and homey. The garden is beautiful and offers quite solitude after a busy day visiting relatives or sightseeing. Highly recommend this rental for anyone who is visiting Victoria and wants a centrally located, clean, quite, comfortable rental with friendly helpful owners. We will rent this unit again; Trish and Marshall

          • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

          Beautiful backyard setting on the patio next to the gardens. Owners were very friendly and there to help in any way. Some amenities were already at the place including coffee, bread, yogurt, scones, and the best homemade strawberry jam on the planet. Definitely going back on our next visit and thanks to the owners for their great hospitality.....Keith Schneider
