Great property with great hosts

  • 5 of 5

I thoroughly enjoyed my time at this property. The view is great, the amount of space is just right, and the owners are quick to help with any need you may have.

At the last minute, I ended up having to switch the days I was going to be able to occupy the property, and the owners were very accommodating. One of the days I needed to switch to was already taken, but the owners went so far as to work out a deal with a neighbor to book me that night in an adjacent property, which was also very nice, and even bought me a bottle of wine as a gift. Feels more like I should have been buying the wine for them.

I loved Victoria, and this property is right in the middle of exactly where you want to be in Victoria. Victoria is a very walkable city, and this property is in prime location for that. I never even took my rental car out of the garage.

I will definitely book here again next time I'm in Victoria.

Beautiful views, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is beautifully appointed. The owner gave us a warm welcome. The views over the harbor are stunning. We rearranged our schedule just so we could spend more time in the apartment to enjoy the view! Water taxi stops directly below the building, everything is in easy walking distance. No need for a rental car. Enjoyed thoroughly. Looking forward to coming back!!

Gorgeous condo with amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned home from a 10 night stay in this beautiful condo. The owner, Carol, met us when we arrived and explained everything we needed to know about the condo, parking, and the building. She generously accommodated an early check-in and late departure. The location is excellent, walking distance to all major sites and attractions at the inner harbour. Right in the neighbourhood are China Town, Market Square and all kinds of interesting shops, restaurants and bars. The kitchen is extremely well outfitted for all kinds of meal preparations, including basic condiments, spices, tea and coffee. It’s a very quiet condo, we didn’t hear any noise from above or beside us. One of the best parts of every day was enjoying the sights and all the activity in the harbour below. Rowers, tugboats, barges, sailboats, seals, eagles, cormorants, ducks, geese and one Great Blue Heron! The new draw bridge had just opened the day before we arrived and it is truly a beautiful, artistic engineering feat. It was so interesting to watch the bridge go up and watch the little tugs pull through gigantic barges. All the pictures on-line are accurate, but the condo seems larger and is even more stunning in person! The wrap around windows are so tall and massive, they create a spectacular setting.

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Carol's suite for five nights, and we were thrilled with every aspect of our stay! The suite is very clean, nicely decorated, and well-equipped. The view is amazing! We loved the location, and the building is clean and quiet. Carol was lovely to deal with, too! We would highly recommend this suite :)
