The camper can sleep 5 adults and the odd dog comfortably. We are a close bike or drive to downtown, on a pleasant bike friendly residential street in the older Fernwood/Jubilee neighbourhood.
NOTE: Currently there will be landscaping activity this April at new houses two doors down, but the noisy part is over.
OPTION-1 - TOWN ($85.00)
We offer a renovated and comfortable Airstream travel trailer for your use, set up at our residence in a pleasant older Victoria neighbourhood. We are a close bike or drive to downtown, in the older Fernwood/Jubilee neighbourhood. Our street has partially restricted access to vehicles, attracting pedestrians and bikers. The self contained unit can provide a cost-effective yet comfy alternative to hotels or house rentals for your visit to the area.
NOTE: there is an additional $10 fee per person beyond 2, but just for ages 12 and up>>no charge for smaller kids.
OPTION-2 - CAMPSITE ($550.00/wk *)
*note: The price includes the cost of propane and towing, but excludes the cost of the site
To provide a unique "west coast" experience, we can set up and leave the trailer at a nearby campground. You may choose to take a short drive to Victoria to enjoy its rich assortment of arts and entertainment, or stay put to experience the beauty that is BC at your front door in the morning, be it rainforest, ocean beach, or meadow.
We can suggest a variety of campsites within 25km of town that may suit your desires, and beyond the 25km for an additional mileage fee. We recommend full service lots, but unserviced Provincial campgrounds may be your speed too - just note that there is only capacity in the trailer's fresh water tank for 2 days, and a limited grey water tank as well.
Guests may enjoy full use of the trailer. There will be no burner lighting (stovetop and oven excepted), setting up, or taking down required during your stay. City water is provided for the shower, toilet, and two sinks.
The beds are newly upholstered, comfortable, and convert easily from seating to sleeping.
The refridgerator and freezer are nice and cold, running on either propane or electricity.
The hot water tank will provide nice showers.
The furnace will keep you warm on any day or night the island will throw at you.
the unit is yours to enjoy with your privacy intact. It is always a pleasure to meet our guests in person. If you are flying in later, that is fine.. we can chat beforehand and leave the keys onsite in a secure location.
That said, we will make sure you have our contact information should any question or concern arise during your stay. We are committed to the success of your vacation!
You are welcome to make use of our basement with an exterior access for bikes, etc.
The WIFI is newly updated which will allow free access to the internet from within the unit, including streaming on your smart phone or the camper's SmartTV.
Please refrain from smoking in the Airstream.
RVs are required to be lightweight, and the furnishings are simply not as durable as a house or hotel room. Please treat the unit with delicacy! Thanks, GS.
I am an architect and father of two boys on beautiful Vancouver Island, British Columbia. I share a home with my partner June and her daughter Julia.
We enjoy spending time in nature, whether through day hikes to spectacular ocean parks, or overnight camping in a BC Provincial Park. We enjoy many of the opportunities for live music by means of visiting artists to Victoria, or weekends spent at any of the music festivals occurring on the island. Once a year we travel to Nova Scotia to enjoy the culture and landscape distinct from our home, as it is a second home to us.
As an Airbnb host, we would like to share with you experiences that we love about this place, such as the beautiful old city of Victoria, the gorgeous and well run natural parks and ocean shoreline, or getting out onto the water on a kayak, sailboat, paddle or perhaps surf-board. We would like to give you a warm, welcoming, and comfortable experience that would put you closer to nature than a downtown hotel, yet accessible to the good stuff the Greater Victoria Peninsula has to offer.
My life motto: Pick a dream, and live it.
