About Steve or Trish

Steve and Trish Young have traveled extensively and know how important it is to find clean, well maintained premises coupled with welcoming amenities, when staying in accommodations away from home.

We have tried our very best to ensure that's what you'll find when you stay in one of our comfortable and convenient vacation rentals in downtown Victoria.

'We love what we're doing and have made many wonderful friends who come back to stay in our properties, year after year.'

Steve or Trish purchased this condo in 2006

Why Steve or Trish chose Victoria

This is absolutely the best location one could find in downtown Victoria.

Close to just about all tourist amenities, just a couple of blocks from Victoria's Inner harbour and the Government Street shopping area.

It is so convenient to everything....we suggest that you please read our guest book to find out what our guests say about the location of our Metro Suite.

What makes this condo unique

We always meet our guests 'in-person' to make them feel welcome and to get them settled-in comfortably to their new surroundings. We provide milk, bread, fruit, water, tea and coffee so that our guests have the 'fixin's' for breakfast on their first morning.

Our building has a wonderful fitness centre and a recreation room, complete with a pool table, fire place, large screen TV and seating areas, ideal for entertaining friends while staying in our building.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just got back from New Orleans where we stayed in an apartment that had

absolutely rave reviews (VRBO). Great location in the French Quarter, but I

can tell you that it did not hold a candle to your rental. So, just a quick note

to say again how much we appreciated:

- Your service

- The wonderful apartment

- Its location

- The fact that it was spotless


Hope you have been able to enjoy some of the Winter Olympics in person!

Thanks again

Conveniently in the Heart of Victoria

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I enjoyed our stay at the Metro Suite last May and felt very welcome by the owners. This apartment gem in downtown Victoria is close to many amenities so that you can experience the essence of the friendly and beautiful city of Victoria. Great accommodations to explore the island and feel comfortable and safe; public transit is easy and car rentals a block away. We would go back again for sure!

Thanks again, Steve & Trish.

Wonderful condo

  • 5 of 5

Hi Steve and Trish,

Just thinking about the month of October and our stay at the condo. We couldn't have wished for better accommodation. As always, the condo made our stay a memorable one. So close to everything and we must say the condo building was quiet and well cared for. Thank you for everything.

Merry Christmas to you both

Wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 10 days in the Metro Suite. It was clean, well appointed and in a terrific location. We only used our car once. My husband appreciated the car wash bay in the secure parking garage and the fitness room. We will stay here again.

great condo, great location, great owners

  • 5 of 5

my husband and I stayed in this terrific condo june 2014.

steve and trish were so helpfull. steve helped me to book bikes which we used to tour the city.

the condo is very very clean, it was equipped with everything you would ever need, location was perfect. I loved sitting on the balcony, condo had great comfortable bed, lovely sitting area, I do not generally cook when I am on vacation but I did cook in the condo kitchen because it was a great kitchen to cook in. I also loved being able to do my laundry before moving on to tofino.

I would highly highly recommend this condo.

Owner's Response: Thanks Kim, for your great comments. It was a pleasure to meet you and Dave and we will look forward to seeing you again in October when you're here to organize the Gordon Lightfoot concert at the Royal Theatre (nice that it's so close-by). We're glad that you enjoy the Metro Suite and everything that's offered there, and also that you had fun bike riding and enjoyed the bit of a discount we were able to arrange for you through Sports Rent. We hope that your drive up to Tofino and your time spent there proved to be all that you hoped (we're sure it was) and that you got to spend some time in the surf and sand. Thanks for being such wonderful guests and we'll see you again soon :-)

Fabulous Stay at Metro Suite with City Life Suites

  • 5 of 5

We just spent another fabulous two months in the Metro Suite; this is our 6th year staying with Steve and Trish and City Life Suites. They are so warm and friendly and treat us like family. The high quality standard they have set for their rentals have kept us coming back and every year they impress us with upgrades to the accomodation. The Metro Suite has truly become our home away from home and we look forward to our winter vacation in the most walkable city in Canada. Every day is an adventure exploring the downtown area, the harbour and the beautiful Beacon Hill Park. ?The location of the Astoria building is so convenient to a wide assortment of restaurants and attractions. ?

Perfect "Everything" Appartment

  • 5 of 5

There isn't anything you could want for in this beautiful appartment in downtown Victoria, BC. From the perfect location near all the sites and the harbour, to the lovely furnished appartment that has everything, and the beautiful parks everywhere you look, you can't go wrong staying here. Everything is close enough that a rental car isn't needed, because walking around this beautiful city was lovely.

Steve and Trish made staying at the Metro Suite such a pleasure from start to finish, that we will definitely be back for another visit!
