Natures Gate was a wonderful venue for my husband's 60th birthday getaway. In total there were 4 couples there the entire week, and 2 fellows who came for part of the week. Plenty of room for all in this well-appointed private home. The view of Greater Victoria, the ocean and the Olympic Mountains from the patio was nothing short of breathtaking, both during the day and in the evening. Everyone was comfortable, the beds were great and the location was quite convenient for both shopping and golfing. We were out most days which was good, because there IS construction going on during weekdays in the lot beside the house, but because we were only home in the evenings the noise was not a huge problem. Lots of wildlife, with deer in the yard beside us quietly grazing. Overall a lovely stay in a lovely home. Highly recommend it.

EMR Response

We enjoyed having you stay at our home and glad that you felt there was enough space for everyone. The contsruction is a bit noisy and appreciate your patience. We hope you will come visit again soon.

We brought our entire family together from the US and Western Canada to celebrate Christmas. We had a great time. It was a great location, with a pretty view. The construction next door was stopped over the holiday so didn't impact us at all. The house was well stocked with dishes, appliances and cooking utensils as we did a lot of cooking and eating! The large living spaces were great for our gatherings and the well appointed bedrooms were great for each of us to have some downtime! Lighting was low in some of the bathrooms and bedrooms but otherwise awesome!EMR did a great job hosting us!

Wow! We just completed an amazing vacation to the Victoria area and on the top of our highlights was being able to stay in this spectacular mansion! Because of the space and the features of the home, we were able to easily have 2 families and a couple friends 11 people in total stay together in complete comfort and style. My friend told me that rented vacation homes never quite live up to your expectations but this place was exactly what we had hoped for and completely as it is pictured! We actually had so much space that we didn't use every room to its full potential and there were a lot of us trying to use every feature! I have to mention some of our favorite features we did use to their full potential which were the perfect hot tub on the deck that we all enjoyed the view from while watching the sunrise or the sunset or an afternoon soak, the complete kitchen where we had everything we needed a gas stove, appliances, kitchen utensils, cutlery, endless glasses, serving bowls, etc. to whip up some excellent meals, the dining room table where we all gathered to eat and chat and play games, and I have to mention the beds that everyone said were fantastically comfortable, inviting and exactly what anyone would want. I also want to mention the management company was great to work with, easy to contact, very friendly and helpful. This was our first time renting a vacation home and it will NOT be the last time! If you are looking for a great experience, this home is truly as it says SPECTACULAR!

There were 12 of us adults, celebrating my parents 60th wedding anniversary! The home and location was perfect! Would highly recommend this property.

Our only suggestion from the ladies was they wished there was mirrors in the bedrooms as they got ready in the morning.

This rental was just as advertised. It was great for our large extended family and friends. It had plenty of rooms/area for privacy along with a large great-room upstairs for everyone to gather. There were also several TV's, a media room and a hot tub which we didn't have time to enjoy with a wonderful view of Victoria. Very welcoming and comfortable too.

EMR Response

Thank you for your review of Nature's Gate. We are happy you had a wonderful stay. This property is great for families as it does host a lot of space to stretch out. The Views of Victoria from Bear Mountain are wonderful.

With six bedrooms and four bathrooms near the top of a suburban mountain on the outskirts of Victoria, BC, this spacious, well-equipped home was indeed perfect for our extended family vacation. Ten days were just not long enough!

The photo of this beautiful home speaks for itself. When you stand on the balcony upstairs, you have a view all the way to Victoria. On a clear day it is really quite spectacular. Stores and restaurants are just minutes away. There were six of us, so with 6 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, it was perfect. Everyone got what they wanted. Due to the stairs from the ground level to the second level, it can be a little challenging, but not impossible for those with mobility issues. There is no shortage of entertainment since there were several TV's, a large screen media room and a hot tub. It would be helpful to have better instructions for operating the various televisions. We were all seniors so it took us a while to figure out how everything worked. This would probably not be a problem for younger folk. The garbage disposal instructions could be clearer as well. Folks from the island might know what needs to be recycled, separated, disposed of or composted, but we did not. These were minor annoyances and in no way did they affect our enjoyment of this wonderful vacation home.

House was a great location and well appointed. Some minor issues....old coffe filter and grounds were found in the coffee pot which required cleaning. Hadnt had a good cleaning in some time. Carpet on the stairs in need of cleaning or replacement. If appliances are turned off, doors should be left open.

EMR Response

Thank you so much for the review Bruce, and letting us know of these issues. We will be taking this to our cleaners so these issues do not come up again. Glad you could enjoy a weekend away with your family!

The house itself is beautiful, no question. It suited our needs nicely in terms of #of beds, amazing kitchen etc. The location is great only minutes drive to Westin Hotel. The view off the back patio is stunning.

Our stay was disappointing from 2 perspectives. Firstly, there was a lot of construction going on right behind us. This made it very dusty and we were awoken to the sounds of heavy machinery 100yds off our bedroom window at 7am every morning.

The second disappointment was that the house had no air conditioning. The day we arrived the outside temp was 30 deg celsius and it stayed that way for 4 out of our 5 nights. In the evening we were sweating while having dinner. You didn't really even want to cook inside in that beautiful kitchen. At night, everyone had very poor sleeps, waking up several times due to the heat in the house.

I understand that nothing can be done about the construction aside from perhaps a drop in rates and that eventually the work will be complete, but a house that large and that expensive without A/C is a surprise. I didn't even think to check about that when I booked but I will be sure to check for A/C in all my future rentals.

If I were coming back at a cooler time of the year and when construction is complete I would for sure stay in that house again. If I were coming back in the summer at all I would not rent this house again because of the lack of A/C. If a friend asks me about the house I would have the same advice for them.

EMR Response

Thank you very much for your kind and honest review. We did and still do have disclosure about the construction nearby. The rates have reflected this since the construction first began. Thankfully the blasting nearby ended fairly quickly. AC use is not common in Victoria. Very rarely do temperatures exceed 30C. Most people in Victoria open windows because the air does blow through. The lower floor does provide lower temperatures. Evening temperatures usually drop significantly and does cool down the house overnight with windows and portable fans. Temperatures in Victoria usually range in the low to mid 20s C per in the summer. However, we do from time to time get a heat wave that hits for a few days in the Summer months. Hope you can come try the house again.
