Virtual Tour Available

Located on a picturesque 5 acre lot, this large 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom, ocean view home is perfect for your next family getaway.

Nestled in a stunning Arbutus grove, this home offers guests a spacious, fully equipped rental in an ideal location with panoramic views of the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the Olympic range beyond.

As you drive up the tree-lined driveway, the distinctive red branches of Arbutus greet you and lead you up to the beautiful sun-soaked home.

Walking into the foyer at the front door, the spacious, open-plan main floor is as impressive as it is homey. With warm wood floors and cabinets, expertly placed lighting, ample seats in the kitchen, dining area and formal living room, and incredible views from the many windows, this home makes the perfect backdrop to any family holiday.

The large, fully-stocked kitchen is outfitted with top-of-the-line, stainless-steel appliances, generous counter space and lots of seating at the bar to allow the family chef and their sous chef to cook dinner while the rest of the family taste testers sit around offering encouragement and conversation.

In the morning, this kitchen is spacious enough to accommodate everyones morning routine and the breakfast bar offers casual seating for everyone to have a quick breakfast before heading out for a day of adventuring.

The adjoining dining room provides guests with the option of enjoying a meal in a more formal setting. With a long stylish table and leather chairs, modern overhead lighting and a bank of windows that surrounds the table, this dining room is a stunning setting for any meal.

A few steps down from the dining room and kitchen, guests will find the luxurious, sunken formal living room, complete with an oversized, deluxe leather sectional, 3D flat screen TV, large coffee and side table.

This living room is ideal for both lively family nights and peaceful cozy evenings spent together. The 3D TV provides unparalleled picture quality for family movie nights or watching sports. The coffee table is ideal for spirited board games and the floor space can easily become the stage for charades.

With the lights dimmed and the soft lamp light though, the living room transforms into a peaceful, relaxing atmosphere to curl up in the plush couch with a book or some music.

Just behind the living room, tucked away from the main area, a chic billiard room with a stylish billiard table, sideboard for drinks, patio access and incredible views of the ocean waits for the next great game.

Off to the right of the foyer, a smaller, private living room, neatly and comfortably furnished with sofas and a flatscreen TV is perfect for setting up kids with their own movie or finding a little peace and quiet away from the main rooms.

Additionally, on the main floor, conveniently placed between the foyer and the garage, there is a small two piece bathroom.

The wrap-around patio on the main level of the house can be accessed through the billiard room or through the dining room and allows guests to relax and recline in the fresh ocean breezes in comfort.

Here, youll find an outdoor dining table to enjoy your food alfresco, as well as lounge seating and a luxurious hot tub to soak sore hiking or biking muscles under the stars.

On the second floor, youll find four spacious bedrooms each with its own incredible view, flatscreen TV, individual PVR and large comfortable beds dressed with the highest quality linens.

At the end of a passage, off the main hallway, youll find the incredibly private, tranquil and luxurious primary bedroom. Here, a bank of windows, offering panoramic views of the ocean and Arbutus grove can be enjoyed from the comfort of the king-sized bed. The five piece, private ensuite with windows that look out over the property, a high-end spa soaker tub, separate shower room and large vanity provides peace and privacy for all your ablutions. In this bedroom, youll be able to properly feel rested and recharged for all your holiday activities.

Next to the primary bedroom, youll find a second bedroom with its own private ensuite. This elegant room is similarly furnished with a king-sized bed and has a view over the property to the ocean beyond. This modest ensuite is complete with bathtub shower and large vanity.

The third and fourth bedrooms both boast two queen sized beds providing ample, comfortable sleeping arrangements for all the members of your family.

These bedrooms have access to the main three piece bathroom with a bathtub shower, large vanity and storage cupboard. This bathroom is cleverly designed with a water closet allowing more people to use the bathroom simultaneously while providing privacy for each.

On the second floor guests will also find a large laundry room with ironing board, hanging rack, washer, dryer and folding counter.

Arbutus Hill is located on a large acreage in the quaint, seaside, country community of Metchosin. The property has private trails throughout the backyard that are ideal for exploring with younger ones or taking a peaceful stroll around the property.

These trails also lead to the extensive and incredibly popular Galloping Goose Trail. The Galloping Goose is a mostly flat, multi-use trail that extends from downtown Victoria to Sooke and beyond. For those looking for a longer walk or a biking trail, the Galloping Goose is absolutely perfect.

If youre hoping to get lots of beach days during your stay, youre in luck! Weirs Beach, a beautiful sandy beach perfect for both summertime swimming and beach combing all year round, is just a five minute walk from the house.

For local, fresh groceries and produce, as well as one of the best bakeries and pizza parlours in Victoria there is no better place to go than the nearby, quirky, beloved My-Chosen Cafe.

While this gorgeous home is in the middle of the peaceful countryside, all of the attractions of Victoria and the lower island are still easily accessible!

An easy forty minute drive will take you to the middle of downtown Victoria where you can see all the historical sites. Wander through Chinatown and explore Fan Tan alley, walk through Market Square and do some shopping along lower Johnson then head down Government street to marvel at the historical architecture.

Stay on Government St. and youll quickly find yourself in the Inner Harbour where you can see the grand Empress Hotel, the impressive Legislative Buildings and wind up at the Royal BC Museum for an afternoon of exploration and education.

From Arbutus Hill, the world famous Butchart Gardens, with hundreds of flowers, plants and trees arranged in five thematic gardens is just forty five minutes away. Explore the nearby town of Sooke and marvel at the expansive, wild beauty of East Sooke Park.

With so many things to do and a breathtaking home to stay in, Arbutus Hill is a place you wont want to say good bye to.

The team at EMR are very friendly and so willing to help. We were a bit nervous to reserve this way but it was such a good experience that we have already confirmed reservations for the next winter. They take good care of their guests.
We chose this location primarily for the access to the Galloping Goose Trail. The beautiful forest behind the house made it a joy to walk that short distance pushing our bikes for access to the trail. Cycling the trail was an emotionally uplifting experience as all along the way we were surrounded by forest and babbling brooks. We stayed on the section of the trail that was a former rail bed which gave us plenty of distance for a workout.
Arbutus House itself was all that we could have asked for very, very clean, good air, comfortable heating, comfortable seating, memory foam mattresses, a view of the ocean over the tree tops and it was extraordinarily well stocked. There was nothing lacking in this entire vacation.

Thank you so much for this great 5-star review. We really appreciate your business and helping to share the word about Arbutus Hill in Metchosin, BC.

This is a beautiful home with every possible convenience. Very comfortable beds, lovely linens, and an extremely well equipped kitchen. We were disappointed with the quality of the towels but other than that it's all first class. It was difficult to enjoy the view due to the smoke from the forest fires but that was the case everywhere in BC and Alberta this summer.

This house was perfect for our annual ladies get together we all graduated high school together. The house provided us with a very comfortable living room to hang in and chat when we were not sitting outside on the deck. The kitchen was well stocked and the house was clean. EMR was very helpful and provided great customer service. The house was exactly as described in the property description and definitely met our expectations. The view exceeded our expectations! I would highly recommend Eagle Wing Tours in Victoria for whale watching and visiting Butchart Gardens. The location of the house is about 15 minutes to major shopping areas for food go to Langford and about 40 minutes depending on traffic from Victoria. I would also suggest visiting downtown Victoria - it's a beautiful city. This house/location was a great place for the six of us to stay for our annual vacation. I would highly recommend renting this home!

We had a great vacation on Vancouver Island staying at Arbutus Hill. We enjoyed going hiking, swimming, going to the beach and exploring Victoria. Our 5 kids loved the hot tub and pool table and all the space we had in this beautiful house. The kitchen is supplied with everything to make meals for a large family. The deck is wonderful with the ocean view. The beach at Witty's Lagoon is recommended to visit with kids at low tide, as well as the Sooke River potholes and go fishing or boating at Pedder Bay Marina.

EMR Response

Thank you for your review of Arbutus Hill. Hiking, swimming and exploring are great activities to do while staying at this property. The hot tub and pool table are welcome additions to have while staying here.

Arbutus Hill was described appropriately and did not disappoint us in any way. We searched for a home that could accommodate 4 couples with 4 baths. One couple had to cancel so each of us had their own bathroom. Master suite lottery was won by the Georgia couple and they loved the luxury. We were all comfortable in our private spaces. The common areas were anything but common. We've never seen a wrap around couch so big and the dining room table is fit for a large gathering. Comfortable patio furniture allowed us to view the water and relax. Loved our time there. Candice greeted us like we were old friends and we were invited to contact her on her cell phone if we had any problems!

Well, with it being difficult to know where your clients come from and what their experiences are, you have set up the vacation home listing in such a way that for those of us who live life simply, we were delightfully surprised at the size, spaciousness and set up of the home so that we could all be close and yet be involved in our own activities. Some needed to relax while others wanted to be engaged in games, puzzles or visiting. The sites from the balcony, living room and master bedroom were simply stunning, with many a time where wild deer were walking and grazing thru the yard. The venue and ambiance was amazing. Thank-you so much for caring about the smallest details to the overall needs of family living!

PROS We are a family of seven, so there was plenty of room for all of us and then some. It was wonderful to be able to stake out our own areas for some down time. Awesome kitchen with everything you could possibly need. The openness and amazing views of the San Juan de Fuca Strait is lovely. The billiards table was fun to play with. And we did take a dip in the hot tub one night. We love all the arbutus trees and seeing the deer relaxing by the house. A few from the family walked the trail behind the house and said it was nice and quiet and could go on for quite a while. A/C was a huge plus and it worked amazingly well. It was surprisingly warmer than we thought it would be in Metchosin.
It gets very windy at night here. So, expect trees blowing and the wind howling at night. But by morning, it was down to a nice breeze. The town of Metchosin was quiet and mellow. We went to its Farmers Market. It took us about 30 minutes to get to downtown Victoria and close to an hour to get to the Victoria Airport.

CONSThe one thing, though, that bothered us was trying to find the trail to the beach. The person who met with us on our arrival date, said that it was just across the street and five minutes down. He didn't provide a map, because as far as we could walk - we didn't see any trails that would lead us to the beach without actually going through someone's property. We tried for 2 days to look for this trail and could not figure out where it was. That was a huge disappointment because the 5-minute walk to the beach was one of the biggest reasons we rented this house. The grand kids love water and would have loved an opportunity to just cross the road and head down there to play. The beach that we did find was about a ten-minute drive - by car. So no big deal but a walking map to the beach would be super helpful!

EMR Response

Thank you for your kind review of Arbutus Hill. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay. Access to Weirs Beach is just walk south on William Head Road to Sandgate. Sandgate is across the street and is a short dead end road. Walk to the end of Sandgate and the beach access is there. Yes, only a 5 minute walk away. In the back of the house manual, there are maps to the beaches in the area. I wonder if you had the opportunity to browse through it? Metchosin is a wonderful little community and the Farmer's Market is a wonderful addition. Thank you for the recommendation, and we hope to see you again soon!
