We have been renting through VRBO for about 10 years and this is one of my favorite houses ever. This is a house that is loved by it's owners who truly seem to enjoy sharing it with others. This rental feels like a home and invites guest to relax and enjoy. Excellent value for money with all it offers including the lake to swim and play in, cool rope swing, barge (fun and easy to drive, the owner taught our 15 year old to drive it), fire pit with chopped wood available for use, games in the house and by the water, nice kitchen and super spacious house with cozy living areas. We loved the large deck over looking the lake. The grounds around the house are absolutely beautiful with magnolia trees, fruit trees, and huge variety of plants and garden areas. In fact there is so much to do right at the house that you could easily stay right there for a week and never leave. However, there is so much to do in Langford and the surrounding areas that our biggest problem was choosing what to do next from all the options (Sooke Potholes Park, Victoria, bike trails, tons of hiking trails, lots of coastal beaches are just a few examples). Langford is the kind of area you would feel comfortable raising your kids in. Restaurants, grocery stores, movie theater, shopping and more all less than 10 minutes away. Everyone we met was super friendly and welcoming. Especially the owner, Richard. Richard was wonderful to work with. He responded to email quickly and put up with all our questions. He is very knowledgeable about the area and provided us with great recommendations. He was very giving of his time and even played Friesbee Golf with us at a nearby course he helped design and build. You will not find a more wonderful owner. The listing description may sound to good to be true but it is very accurate and we highly recommend.
