Townhouse for renting from June 15 to December 15 2021 (6 months)

Renting a fully furnished 104 m2 (1,120 sqrft) townhouse in the Railyards, Victoria’s VicWest, for $2,200/month. High-speed internet, heat and electricity all included. I will be away for 6 months on a sabbatical in Europe, thus the entire house except my room will be available as living space. While the available room is not super large it has its own bathroom with bathtub and its own balcony as well. Location is super quiet in a friendly, family-oriented although vibrant neighborhood. Just one block from the West-Side Village Shopping Centre, with Save on Foods, Starbucks, Pharmacy/Canada Post, various restaurants, Browns Crafthouse Pub, TD Bank, etc. One block also from a bus stop at the corner of Bay Street with Tyee Rd. The Railyards just boarders the Gorge Waterway and the Galloping Goose Trail (you can be in downtown after a 12-min walk or a 5-min bike ride). Also, just a couple of blocks from the beautiful Bamfield Park and the Vic West Community Centre. The cherry in the cake If you are a beer aficionado are the 8+ breweries within a 4-block radius (Driftwood, Hoyne, Phillips, Vancouver Island, Moon Under Water, Canoe Brew Pub, Spinnakers, Whistle Buoy, Swans).

Located in the upper floor, the available room has plenty of storage space with a dresser and walk-in closet and a 45” smart TV (No Cable TV, but you can watch Netflix or use Chromecast). Right next to the room there is a den with an office space. A small laundry room with washer and dryer is also available in the upper floor. Downstairs the spaces include a spacious fully equipped kitchen combined with the living and dining room, and a small patio/garden perfect for barbecues in the spring/summer.

I have many more photos of the house that I can share with you via email if you are interested. I am finishing a small renovation making a nice home office space upstairs.

About Me
I am a senior scientist with Ocean Networks Canada at University of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. My research focus is on marine biodiversity and human impacts in particular affecting deep-sea ecosystems, such as climate-change related, deep-water fishing, etc. I am in my low 40s, I am a very positive, social and healthy person, conscious about the environment and that enjoys cultural exchange as a fundamental process of personal growth. I am citizen of Brazil, Spain and Canada, and mostly though work have been traveling to all parts of the globe, developing research partnerships, attending to international conferences and joining on oceanographic expeditions.
