What Our Guests
Say About Natures Gate Executive Vacation Home

Great home

group of 8 guys on a golf trip. Home was well equiped and perect for our needs

Randy E.

Bear Mountain Nature's Gate Home

Overall fantastic home and EMR was excellent to work with. Would use EMR again for certain, very professional and helpful.

Excellent stay!

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.

Colleen D.

Our Thanksgiving Holiday Spot

Another family joined us and we had a fabulous time! Lots of hiking in the area. Made use of hot tub and the were able to walk the kid to Bear Mountain resort to use the heated pool. Parents were able to have a nice night to them selves with personal chef in the wine cellar, which was amazing!!! Great location with lots to do.

Great Christmas Vacation

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!

Lynn M.

Absolutely

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!

Hore Family Stay

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.

Bruce H.

Wedding week excellent!

House beautiful was a great experience

Roomy, Comfortable and Upscale

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.

Steven L K.

Home and Location Perfect for our Extended Family

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!

Bear Mountain Getaway

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.

Excellent home!

This was a fantastic home that met all our needs. The view is spectacular and the home was clean and spacious. We would def book it again.

Leanne M.

Aug 2018

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.

Great Family Get Away!

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.

3 Thumbs Up

Great home, large, well equipped with a spectacular view.

David K.

Great location - With a little TLC, this place would be perfect!

We had several small issues upon check-in but EMR took care of most of them right away. Great location and with a little TLC, this home would be awesome. Furniture and carpet are worn, patio door does not lock, lots of smudges on the walls, missing artwork & light bulbs, cracks in the master bath tile, broken master bath drawer, etc. We did have a wonderful time in Victoria!

Paula S.

Very nice house, great views, lovely neighborhood

Easy booking, in all questions quick response before our trip, nice greeter at our arrival, spacy house in good conditions, very clean, spectacular views to Victoria and the sea.

Superb vacation rental

Everything was just great, met all our expectations. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone whos interested. The staff was always easy to communicate with, willing to help at any moment. Clean and spacious. Thanks to all.

You won’t regret staying here

Professional service. 5 stars

Alfred C.

Beautiful view and spacious living!

Amazing view overlooking Victoria and the Pacific, had deer frolicking around the property making us feel like we were in a Disney movie.

Rented this space for 5 days with a group of 9 men and it was a great fit between the huge kitchen, media room, hot tub, and proximity to the golf course.

Would thoroughly recommend this property! It was definitely worth the price.

Additional notes very clean, organized support staff, neighbours were friendly, easy trips into Victoria, beautiful finishes, comfy beds.

Only improvement would be for the property to have more cleaning supplies as a boys weekend can get messy and the property is so nice that you want to keep it clean.

Bear Mountain Executive Retreat

We recently rented this beautiful six bedroom home near the top of Bear Mountain. Mathe house was in great shape, very clean, well stocked. The views of the mountains and the ocean were amazing. EMR was extremely responsive to all,of our communication. We would definitely recommend this property.

Cindy O.

Excellent home.

Wonderful house with a great kitchen and plenty of room. Ideal for us as we were one couple and three singles. Beautiful views and daily visits by the resident deer family. Short drive to the Bear Mountain resort and local golf courses.

Rodney M.

A 5 Star Experience

This stay was for our aging parents, likely the last one for us, as the 4 children and spouses are scattered across Canada. This home allowed all 5 couples to have their own bedroom/space. The views were immaculate with views of the water and downtown Victoria and wildlife deer and hummingbirds in our backyard. The kitchen and living spaces were well equipped, almost as well stocked as our own kitchen at home! 2 sets of washer/dryers allowed us to do laundry on our own schedule. I would recommend this property to anyone visiting Victoria.

Jim L.

Great house

Dream house vacay

Our stay at the vacation house was surreal. It was Better then we ever expected in every way. There are not enough words or space to describe how much we enjoyed it. Thank you so much for having us

Leah Y.

Great Stay

We booked this house for a family reunion and it was perfect. Nice location and very spacious for the 7 adults and a couple of children. Everybody enjoyed the house and the hot tub was nice even in the cold weather.
Would highly recommend it.

Mya D.

Big House, Well Appointed in Bear Mountain

A very nice home with lots of room for your group. Near Bear Mountain and several golf courses, Costco, shopping.

Hot tub with a great view is a definite highlight. Second time our group has stayed here and definitely would again.

Love this place!

Stayed here with some family while visiting Victoria.The house was beautiful and EMR staff were very accommodating. Highly recommend staying here!

Excellent Stay

wonderful home - beautiful surroundings. All the things we needed for a comfortable weekend stay with the family. Highly recommend!

This house was perfect for our group of ladies for a golf getawa.

This house provided us the space to spread out when we wanted to and the opportunity to come together. It is very spacious.
