5088 William Head Road Victoria, BC V9C 3Z1 Canada

Located on a picturesque 5 acre lot with incredible ocean views, Arbutus Hill is the perfect tranquil destination for your next vacation to Victoria British Columbia. Situated among a beautiful forest of Arbutus trees, this wonderfully equipped home boasts panoramic views of the Juan de Fuca Strait and Port Angeles and only steps to one of Victoria's best sandy beaches.

The open concept main level of the home is the perfect layout for a large family. The bright and open kitchen has seating for six at the kitchen bar. There is also a large formal dining area with seating for eight, and the option of a table leaf to add two extra seats. Granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances and every amenity required for your stay is provided for you. The formal living room, with large sectional couch, is the perfect place to enjoy the large television and the view. There is also an additional family room complete with comfortable furniture and television. Off the formal living room, you will find a separate area equipped with a large pool table. Each of these rooms have amazing views of the ocean, beautiful forest surroundings, and access to the large wrap around deck. Outside on the deck from the pool table, there is a brand new hot tub ready for you to have a warm soak while you enjoy the amazing views!!

Upstairs is where the four large bedrooms are located, all with amazing views. The incredibly impressive master suite has panoramic views of the ocean, a king size bed, an ensuite bathroom with soaker tub (looking over the ocean) and a large walk in shower with jets. The master suite also has a very large walk in closet. The large second bedroom could also be classified as a master bedroom, with a king size bed and also has it's own three piece ensuite. In the next two wonderfully decorated bedrooms, you will find two queen size beds in each room. There is a four piece bathroom shared by these two bedrooms. Each bedroom has it's own flat screen TV with separate PVR systems included.

Arbutus Hill is located on a large acreage in the quaint community of Metchosin. The property has trails throughout which are perfect for a nice walk or a bike ride. The trail systems lead to the very popular Galloping Goose Trail. The Galloping Goose is a mostly flat trial 55kms long that extends from Downtown Victoria, through the Westshore, Metchosin and past Sooke. The trail is perfect for long bike rides or long walks through the majestic Metchosin forest. Weirs Beach, which is only a 5 minute walk from the house, is a beautiful sandy beach perfect for both swimming in the summer or beach combing all year round. There is a general store located in Metchosin complete with fresh produce and groceries. The My Chosen Café is a local favorite which also offers a sweet shop, and separate pizza parlour which is the best in Victoria.

With both an amazing home, property and the many things to do right at your fingertips, you won't want to leave Arbutus Hill!

    Our party of 7 stayed here for a weekend and we found the home stocked with all the comforts and supplies needed during our stay. The house was large, comfortable, clean, great kitchen to cook in, and the neighbouring area quiet, scenic and peaceful. I would highly recommend anyone stay here during a visit to the island.

    Our stay at the Arbutus Hill Home was perfect! There was more than enough space for 4 couples, with great amenities and a well-equipped modern kitchen. The Jacuzzi and Pool Table were also big hits while waiting for the weather to improve a little bit to allow for some outdoor activities!

    a guest from SHERWOOD PARK, AB recommends this vacation rental

    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.

    a guest from Lacombe, Alberta recommends this vacation rental

    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.

    • Manager Responded on 8/1/2018

      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. It sounds like you were able to explore a little part of our paradise. We look forward to seeing you again!

    a guest from Rancho Palos Verdes, CA recommends this vacation rental

    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.

    CONS:The 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!

    • Manager Responded on 8/8/2018

      Thank you for your kind review of Arbutus Hill. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay. 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 Famer's Market is a wonderful addition. Thank you for the recommendation, and we hope to see you again soon!

    a guest from Lubbock, Texas recommends this vacation rental

    This is a very nice house in Metchosin. It takes a little time to get there because of the slow speed limits on the rural roads in Canada. The house was completely stocked with everything needed for a great vacation including golf clubs and tennis racquets. Kitchen had coffee and spices and enough settings for 12 guests. Our family of 7 enjoyed the stay.

    Maureen C O from Newtown, CT recommends this vacation rental

    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!

    An absolutely beautiful house, fully equipped with everything we needed. A perfect layout for a big group like us as it's open planned living area provided us with the perfect balance of being able to chill together, but to also get a few hours solitide when needed! The Hot tub, terrace and BBQ combo truly made our holiday. Thank you very much EMR - we will definitely be back!

    This is a beautiful house that has been very well maintained. It's also on a large, private lot with a gorgeous view of the ocean. There is the odd truck that drives by, but otherwise, it is exceptionally quiet. This is a perfect spot for those that want access to Victoria, but don't want to be in a busy, noisy area.
