Loved it and highly recommend

  • 5 of 5
The accommodation exceeded my expectations as I was initially very hesitant to rent based on photographs and without a personal visit.

Did not have the pleasure of meeting Don and Anne as other reviewers have described but their substitutes Sal and Jessica were very helpful and went out or their way to be helpful.

The spaghetti, sauce and bottle of wine were there as another reviewer has described but little did they know that we are vegetarians and teetotalers so couldn't avail ourselves of this treat. In my opinion it is the thought that counts and would have no hesitation in booking a future visit :)

My wife who is very particular about these things thought the place was clean and tidy. Was surprised by the weekly housekeeping service and my son who stayed for the entire month thought that it was a particular god send, as he could concentrate on his studies.

Lucked out with the weather and took advantage of the backyard, which is well maintained by Sal. Victoria is a beautiful city and we took the hour and a half bus tour which gave us a sense of history and how the city planners have blended the old with the new.

Would have no hesitation in recommending a stay in this family friendly neighborhood and we were even graced by a visit from the deer that seems to be at home in the surrounding yards. This seemed to sum up the idyllic and peaceful nature of the area. As Don has said to "just bring the food" as everything else is provided. Did not get a chance to enjoy the hot tub in the back yard and hope to do that in a future visit.

Owner's Response: So glad your whole family liked our property. We do strive to make it as inviting as possible for everyone. Next time you come for a visit I will ensure a vegetarian welcoming meal will be waiting for you.
Thanks for you kind words - Don & Anne - Sal & Jessica

Outstanding Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5
The property description and pictures were accurate in all regards.

The location of the rental is very nice. Quiet, Peaceful and Beautifully kept yard. The condo is very neat and clean, as well as well equipped.

The hospitality provided by the owners is great, though unfortunately we missed out on our opportunity to have an evening with them. All of the makings of a spaghetti dinner were left in the freezer or on the counter, including a bottle of wine upon our arrival.

I would recommend this rental to friends and relatives without any hesitation. A great spot for a getaway.

Thanks - Don & Anne

Super Stay at SuperSuites

  • 5 of 5
Don and Anna made the stay incredibly homey and easy.
My children had a great time in the beautiful back yard. We also enjoyed great conversation and warm barn fire which Don and Anna invited all of us to.
Anna even prepared us our dinner when we first arrive. Don brought my children all the toys he can find in the house, and those kind gestures really touched our hearts.
Thank you, Don and Anna!
Hope to see you again this summer.

Owner's Response: Scott it was so enjoyable watching your two little kids sitting in front of the fire sipping on some hot chocolate. To us, that's what the yard is all about and we are just happy they could enjoy it.

Really good time on the island

  • 5 of 5
First I rented the place for one week than ended up staying for 4,5 months. The apartment itself is nice, bright and clean. Equipped with everything you need for a long term stay. It´s a shame that it was too cold to use the outdoor space. The neighborhood is very quiet. Anne and Don are helping you with whatever you would like to know and are never short of interesting conversation topics. Keep an eye on Topas the cat if she´s around. Thank you for a great time at your place.

The perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Mysty Woods apartment in June this year for a week. Thoroughly enjoyed the apartment and the neat kitchen overlooking the dining area.

Brand new beds were super comfortable.

It was a pleasure meeting the owners Don & Anne who helped us with every need and request. Special thanks for the welcome package with our first nights meal in it. Your spaghetti sauce was delicious.

Your loan of the GPS was greatly appreciated and we discovered many things in Victoria that we hadn’t known about, without getting lost.

Already telling our friends here in Kitchener about this fabulous find – we will also be back.

Thanks for a great vacation!

Mysty Way

  • 5 of 5
From the moment my husband, daughter and I arrived we felt like we were coming home. We were greeted by Anne & Don and given the tour of their beautiful property. In the kitchen we enjoyed a lovely welcome basket with lots of goodies and had a Keurig coffee maker with various coffees, teas, and hot chocolate.

We were so pleasantly surprised when Anne brought us in a fig loaf she had baked from figs off her tree, so delicious.

The bedrooms had comfortable queen beds and furnished very tastefully. We loved relaxing in the living room after a long day out. The kitchen was equipped with all that you would need for your stay. The rooms had beautiful large windows which let in lots of light.

We had a wonderful BBQ on the back patio and all the condiments were supplied in a mini fridge as well as utensils. etc. Such a lovely backyard to enjoy sitting out.

We spent a nice evening in front of the pot belly stove enjoying wine and popcorn and great conversation with our hosts.

Thanks again Anne and Don for helping to make our long journey from N.B. to leave our daughter at UVic a lot less stressful. We appreciate everything you did for us and would highly recommend your home to anyone.

We are within reach of 12 golf courses that are open year round. A Golfers heaven. Great winter course is just 5 minutes away.

Victoria is a haven for Canadians and Europeans who want to escape a harsh winter. We have foliage and green grass year round.

It will normally snow only once per year in Victoria. Some say we have a bylaw that it must b e gone by noon the next day.

Very seldom does the winter temperature go below freezing. We have the most palm trees in all of Canada.

World famous Butchard Gardens nearby, attracts 1,500,000 visitors yearly.
