We call our vacation rental 'Petie's House'. 'Petie' was the nickname for our grandmother. The cottage was built for her on my parent's property in 1983 after my grandfather died as she was lonely on her own. The house is 1250 sq ft with all the comforts of home! My grandmother was an amazing cook and gardener. I have wonderful memories of sampling her cookies, pies, jams and out of this world bread. My grandfather's and the three of us grandchildren especially loved her 'grumpa cookies'. Ask me and I will whip you up a batch of your own. Maybe you will also get inspired and do your own fabulous cooking and baking! The cottage is open concept with a vaulted ceiling which makes the house spacious and comfortable. The cottage has a large kitchen with counters and island including a dishwasher and full sized stove, fridge and microwave. We have full laundry facilities in the kitchen and provide racks to hand dry clothes such as bathing suits, beach towels or delicates. Off the kitchen is a dining room area with a large table and chairs and then drops down to a sunken living room with propane fireplace and flat screen TV over the mantel. There is an alcove area at the other end of the living room area with a comfy LazyBoy queen size sleeper. Lots of windows and we just installed a heat pump system so you can be as cool or warm as you need! One bedroom has a queen size bed, flat screen TV and lots of closet space including a large dresser. We have also provided an upholstered chair to sit and read or pull your shoes off. The second bedroom is connected through a short breezeway. Rock hearth and electric fireplace, flat screen TV/WIFI/PVR, coffee/tea station, queen size bed and lots of windows. Very private and one of our guest's favorite rooms. The bathroom is large with a tub, separate shower, full size vanity and more storage space. We also have a private deck for the guest house screened off on one side from the rest of the yard and main house. Table, chairs and barbecue! Guests will have private use of the cottage, deck, parking spot and access to the grounds around the property. We live on the property in the main house. The guest house is attached through a breezeway. The guests will have private entrances into the cottage. We will meet with the guests, give them the tour and the keys. We are usually around the property and available by text and phone if the guests have questions. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: Bus Lic N. Saanich 1397More
