Each year my siblings, nephew and I take a trip that involves a train ride. This year we went from Seattle to Vancouver and then Faried over to Victoria. We have stayed in many VRBO type homes. This was the most unbelievable in so many ways. It was
absolutely beautiful in design and decor. Add to that the very
personal touches by the owner like fresh flowers on the table, a drawer full of spices and all the cooking oil's and the necessities,and lovely card upon arrival welcoming us and I can say without hesitation that this was the best VRBO experience we have ever had! and this doesn't even taken the incredible yard and the Jacuzzi.
Rivers Crossing is the perfect get away for a big group or families with kids.
We had a fabulous time there!
We started our booking closer to holidays and we could not find anything the style we used to travel before, rustic, cheaper,...! As a group of friends with kids, we decided to go with this luxury option and share the cost.
The outcome was so wonderful and we are all so happy for the decision we made!
The hosts were great and ready to answer our questions and accommodate everything we needed.
The house was so spacious and so beautifully designed, that spending time there became an absolute delight.
The large open kitchen with a well-equipped pantry was a haven to prepare a meal together, while enjoying a nice drink, chatting, listening to music and watching our kids playing so happily together as a group!
The kids loved to get to choose their favorite rooms when we got there. That was a big hit. They even got to sleep together, “just like a big sleep over…”
All details and information were tastefully written in a binder along with pamphlets, wireless info, etc. We were even surprised by a beautiful card, personally crafted for our friends and us. Welcoming and thorough, our hosts have made sure this trip became a memorable and cherished getaway.
The children loved to explore and play in the beautifully designed and manicured backyard. They loved the bird houses and feeders, which attracted a lot of rare birds, adding extra joy to our delightful trip.
We spent four days at this sanctuary. Upon our arrival, we all decided to stay in for the first day, enjoying a great barbecue, winding down from everyday rush while the kids were having the time of their life.
The hot tub by the woods with faery lights, the outdoor fire pit with chairs around it, the serenity of this chic sanctuary, the classy interior design of this Victorian style house and the proximity to all beaches and downtown Victoria, the lake, the hikes, all and all made this destination a haven to come back to.
We started our day trips from day 2 to 4 and enjoyed an array of wonderful outings which they were all easy drive, easy access from 2 Rivers Crossing. To name a few, we explored Thetis Lake, French Beach, Sooke, Butchart Gardens and Downtown Victoria.
Paying the same rate at a hotel but in separate rooms with no cooking options or maybe a little less for small cottages would have not ever matched the fun to share ONE amazing accommodation together for 4 memorable days.
We will definitely do this again and recommend it to all our friends.
Thank you Bev to make this possible,
