À propos de ce logement
The occasional dwelling of an eccentric, geeky, and self-proclaimed hipster... is that even possible? A new house in one of Victoria's most convenient neighbourhoods: walking distance to panoramic views, university, restaurants & shopping. 15 min direct bus to downtown. Close to the ocean, bike trails, nature. Advertising aside, it's a cool place with cool things in it - this is home when I come visit.

A bachelor suite (everything in one room) equipped with fast wi-fi and is business-traveller friendly. Located in a quiet residential area, yet still close to everything. There isn't a kitchen, but has a microwave and a mini fridge for making breakfast.
Accès des voyageurs
Guests have 24hr access (24hr check-in) to the suite via a separate entrance. The backyard is fantastic for lawn games and hangouts during the summer!

I'm currently working in Vancouver, thus renting out this place while away. The homeowners live upstairs. Interaction is completely up to the guests.
If you are staying more than a few days: a student tenant living in a separate suite beside this one uses the washer/dryer once a week.
Of course I will help with checkin and checkout as much as possible. Once you are on wifi, I can also video call in to show you around :)
Close to the University of Victoria and Camosun College, this neighbourhood is highly sought after by students and young professionals: all the amenities are near by, beautiful parks, ocean, and easy transport to downtown.
15 minute drive to the heart of town, about 40 minutes from the ferry and airport. The bus stop is across the street and takes you downtown in 20 minutes for $2.50.
Taxi from downtown is around $20, from the airport/ferry is around $60.
HeliJet (helicopter near downtown) and HarbourAir (seaplane in downtown) takes you to downtown Vancouver in just 30 minutes for $150-250.
A very reliable and fast wifi network is provided. While you are on the internet, please do not torrent or violate any other laws. Some guests have illegally downloaded copyright material before; legal settlement can get messy.
Smoking (including electronic cigarettes) is only allowed outside.
Please do not torrent or share copyright material while on the provided internet.
The suite does not have a kitchen (but has a fridge, a microwave and toaster oven). Making breakfast and snacks is encouraged, but cooking larger meals and the use of a stove of any kind is strictly prohibited for safety reasons.

Software developer, photographer; love adventures and getting myself into a pickle. I ride a motorbike, ski/snowboard, get lost in foreign cities on purpose... All my income basically goes into plane tickets :P
As a traveller: lots of stories to share, I want to experience different cultures from a local's perspective, getting to know people and learn as much as possible!
As a host: I've lived in Victoria for 5+ years, and know many cool places to go, things to do. Would love to show you around!
