After following the Tiny House movement for awhile I decided to build a Tiny House. The 100 square foot space is all cedar and pine with a roof of recycled tires. The small space has been used creatively with a small sleeping loft reminiscent of a sailboat cabin, a fridge under the stairs and a den for furry friends. Large windows let in lots of light and a sweet view of trees and shrubbery.
There is a composting toilet in the little outhouse and a outdoor (but private) solar shower (indoor shower available if the sun doesn’t shine). Just off the Tiny House porch is a covered outdoor kitchen equipped with all the necessary items to prepare meals. Tea, coffee, baked goods, local eggs, berries and other foodstuffs are provided for breakfast.
There is free safe parking, but if you arrive by bicycle we offer a 20% discount. There is WiFi.
Interaction with Guests
I really enjoy meeting travellers, especially those travelling by bicycle and would be happy to take guests on bike rides or hiking in nearby parks.
The neighbourhood is peaceful and rural with beaches, parks, hills and woods all around.
An 8 minute walk takes you to bus stops going to Downtown Victoria or to SIdney and the ferry terminal. Restuarants, pubs and shopping at Broadmead and Brentwood Bay are also accessible by short bus rides.
For cyclists the Lochside trail offers a traffic free route into Victoria and connections to the Galloping Goose trail out to Sooke.
Other Things to Note
We have bicycles and hand built wooden kayaks to lend guests for a small donation to Wild Arc, the local wildlife hospital.
