Guest Rating:

4181 Rocky Mountain Rd Victoria, British Columbia V0R 2L0 Canada

Morningside Ocean Estate is one of British Columbia's premier vacation rental homes. Achieving magic with nature and architecture meeting in perfect harmony. The Frank Lloyd Wright inspired house that was 15 years in the making sits above the waters of the South Finlayson Arm of the Saanich Inlet Fjord on Vancouver Island. The main house is a 5 star five-bedroom dwelling crafted out of rock and glass for the most discriminate of travelers.

Each of the bedrooms is magnificently appointed in authentic arts and crafts decor, a deck, and an air jetted tub. Going up a custom-made staircase above the beautiful indoor garden enters into the master bedroom suite. The 1000 square foot living space of the master bedroom is beautifully appointed with Japanese cherry wood and fine furnishings. A Neptune's Zen over flow tub with active-air jets is yours to enjoy while pampering yourself to a relaxing bath. The ensuite also includes a large glass shower for two, with steamer and rain shower head. The master bedroom boasts a large private all-glass gazebo offering unparalleled panoramic views of the Saanich Inlet. At the back of the master bedroom is a large deck overlooking the swimming pool, hot tub, waterfall, and beautiful decks below.

The great room and the dining room each have a massive fireplace created in the Frank Lloyd Wright style, each room large enough to host a party of 50 or more guests. The sitting area of the Great Room has a 50 inch HDTV to which you can connect a computer for Powerpoint or slide shows or you can just relax and watch a movie. A fantastic fully equipped kitchen to prepare culinary delights. Ask us about our in house chef services. Decks surround the majority of the estate house with million dollar views at every point. The Morningside Ocean Estate grounds cover almost 8 acres and one can experience a west coast rain forest, to cultured gardens, to an ocean shoreline teaming with marine wildlife. The deep-water dock can manage almost any sized vessel or float plane.

The cultured gardens introduce the guest to plants that are completely unexpected to grow in Canada. The property abounds in edible delights with a rich array of fruit bearing plants including bananas, grapes, olives, cherries, and peaches that grow on the property.

Perched on the shores of the Saanich Inlet, and just 30 minutes drive from downtown Victoria, Morningside Ocean Estate offers the ultimate in luxury accommodation in a truly unique environment.

    A fantastic place to relax and unwind. Very close to Victoria, yet located on a sheltered inlet, secluded and surrounded by mountains makes it beautiful and serene. Very spacious layout with lots of windows and plenty of fireplaces. Janet was a wonderful host. Can't wait to return!

    We had the most amazing time at the Morningside Ocean Estate. As a family we met from all over Canada and the USA. It was a great location with the most amazing views. The amenities were good but many of the furnishings were well worn and need to be replaced. I would stay at this location again and recommend it as well if some of the maintenance was taken care of.

    a guest from Kelowna, BC recommends this vacation rental

    Wonderful experience at Morningside. The house is very well furnished, and anything that you need in addition to what is provided is a short drive away. Very private location, surrounded by lush nature. The property feels like it is in a tropical destination because of the amazing gardens that Janet keeps. The beds are very comfortable with beautiful bedding. The pool and hot tub were a huge hit, as was the firepit down by the waterfall. Janet is also very accommodating in terms of decorations, etc. for any special event that you may be planning which is nice because a lot of venues are limited in what they allow you to bring/use decorate. For example, we brought string lights and lit up several areas around the pool to add ambience for our event. I can't say enough great things about this property, I would definitely go back again! Perfect for weddings, family/friend reunions, etc.

    We had a Christmas/Family Reunion at Morningside Estate, with family coming from San Francisco, Portland, Los Angeles, Australia and Guinea, Africa. The house was perfect and as described and everyone had a great time for the week we were there. Fishing, hiking, games, a boat ride, lots of eating and drinking and laughing. Thank you for providing such a great locale!

    This place is second to none the view and setting were beautiful. Janet was very helpful. What an awesome week to relax and enjoy the peaceful setting. We were able to see Orcas almost everyday.

    a guest from Victoria, BC recommends this vacation rental

    It was the most magical setting for a get away with friends. The property is stunning with gorgeous gardens, a refreshing clean pool and lovely dock access to the ocean. There was not another property in sight. We loved everything about it once we had arrived.

    Something I wish we had been warned about though is the road down to the property. We had no warning accept for the day of check in (1 hour before) that you require a 4 wheel drive to get down the bumpy windy road. Considering it is a 1 km road on a steep hill there was no chance of carrying all of our food and luggage for 13 people for a 3 night stay. This left us with no way to access the property. The owners said if they were around they would help us get down, but certainly didn't offer to set a meeting time to ferry us. It was minor set back, which would have been no big deal at all had they: 1 told us we needed a 4 wheel drive with enough notice to rent one or; 2 been willing to set a time to meet us and ferry all of the luggage.

    Aside from that minor 'getting to' story it was the perfect stay. We would visit again any day.

    • Manager Responded on 9/1/2014

      Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. We wish to point out that every guest that books this property is told at the time of booking you need a high suspension vehicle, four wheel drive or all wheel drive SUVs or trucks. All our agents are specially trained to inform the guests of this issue because of the steep gravel road to access the property. We hope to see you again in the future.

    Heather N from Edmonton, Alberta recommends this vacation rental

    What a beautiful place, ideal for a family of 19 to celebrate our 50th anniversary. The house was wonderful, so much inside and outside space that we never felt crowded. The nine grandchildren loved the trampoline, pool and hot tub, kayaking, playing badminton, roasting marshmallows. The highlight was seeing a mother whale and her calf swim by.
    Thanks to Janet for taking such good care of us. I would recommend this place 100%.

    I booked morningside for my wedding. I have to say it was the most amazing experience ever. The on site service that we received was truly above and beyond. Morningside is gorgeouse the pictures don't do it justice and they are amazing you will not be disappointed in your stay here. If you are thinking about holding a special event here look no further it will surpass your expectations like it did for me. I know my husband and I and our family will be talking about this experience for many many years to come.

    a guest from Grand Prairie, AB does not recommend this vacation rental.

    The house and grounds were beautiful. oul not have asked for better. ThBut the house was advertised as being in Victoria when actually it was in Malahat and because of traffic it took quite awhile to actully get to Victoria. Also and most importantly the road down to the property was HORRIBLE. I left the place once only because the road terrified me. You needed a 4x4 for sure to navigate it. This should have been told in the original ad for the house. Also, the two bedrooms had lofts which were so high up that there was no way small children were safe using it. So that eliminated 4 beds basically. I think the ad should also have mentioned that.

    • Manager Responded on 8/23/2013

      Thank you for providing us a review of your stay. The ad is very clear about the lofts and with every booking we advise all guests before making the decision to book the property about the gravel road to access the property. We always advise to use SUV or 4X4 behicles when renting this property. However, carefully driven and not overloaded 2 wheel drives that have high clearance are good as well. Yes, the property is located in the Victoria region or what is called the CRD (Capital Regional District) in the municipality of Langford. The drive is 30 minutes into downtown Victoria. Thank you again and we hope to see you again in the future.
