This rental was all it was described to be. It was a perfect size (even for 6 people). The layout was comfortable and relaxing at the end of a long day of sightseeing. We quickly felt it was our "home" away from home. The owner was very helpful and friendly to us, providing directions and recommendations of things to do and see. The only thing missing was an outside place to sit out in the evening. The house is located in a beautiful quiet neighbourhood with easy access to bus routes, restaurants and downtown. Most of our activities were either downtown around the harbour or accessed through downtown. The bus ride is an easy 10 minutes - so if you are not renting a car this location is perfect. Even heading out to the Butchart Gardens for the day was a quick trip using BC Transit, the bus routes are all close to the Hillside route. I would certainly recommend this rental and if I'm back in Victoria would stay here again. Thanks Cynthia and Doug!
