Located in beautiful Victoria in British Columbia, Canada, Sunrise Garden Cottage is a unique heritage barn (c. 1908) that has been lovingly renovated into a romantic vacation rental for two. This little gem is only a 5 minute drive to Cadboro Bay Village, 15 minutes to downtown Victoria, and 50 paces to a secluded cove where you may discover bald eagles, oystercatchers, herons and more. Sunrise Garden Cottage offers comfort and security in one of Victoria’s most exclusive residential areas. A vehicle is recommended as there is no public transit nearby. Guest parking is located near the cottage door, away from the street. Sunrise Garden Cottage is part of a private estate managed by the owners who live on the property year round. The cottage is available for two people for a minimum of one week during the summer months and one month during the winter.
Sunrise Garden Cottage offers electric heat as well as a natural gas fireplace, television, CD player, WiFi, books, cards, and games. The cozy sitting area features an eclectic mix of Canadian and English antiques including a seaman’s chest and unusual doughbin, and seasonal flowers. A corner kitchenette is well-equipped with a Jenn-Air, convection oven, microwave, small refrigerator, mini washer/dryer, china, linens, and a complimentary welcome basket. A large dining room table expands for dinner guests. The main floor bathroom offers a clawfoot tub with shower, stacks of towels, and luxurious toiletries.
A hidden garden is for the exclusive use of our guests. It is a woodland setting in dappled light, a profusion of shrubs, perennials and annuals and a delight in all seasons. Daffodils, primulae and tulips of early spring are followed by Lenten roses, bluebells, Solomon’s Seal and roses. From then until frost there is a tangle of fuchsias, Monk’s Hood, astilbe, daisies, huge mop heads of hydrangeas and bright annuals. Bird feeders attract a variety of song birds who live in the shelter of the ancient laurel hedge. High overhead, bald eagles build their nests.
Upstairs in the former hayloft is an enormous 23′ x 23′ bedroom with a comfortable king-size bed & recently added ensuite. The bedroom decor is calm and relaxing in pure white and soft French blue. Beside the bed is ample light for reading.
