Your well-behaved pet is welcome here--each suite has a fenced-in area and a doggie door.

The suite is fully furnished and has a queen sized bed and a pull-out couch in the living room. Suitable for short-term or long-term stays.

I am a retired registered nurse my husband, born in Germany still runs his Music studio and store. We are long term residents of Victoria, (my mother was born one block from our house). We have been married 40 years. We enjoy the wonderful amenities Victoria has to offer on a regular basis. We truly love animals and welcome your pets. We have a one legged Seagull we have named Heathcliff which we nursed back to health after finding him near death on the beach down the road. He is has adopted us and spends a lot of time perched on our roof or sitting on the rock to sun himself.

Patricia Hergt purchased this apartment in 2000

I fell in love with this house the minute I saw it. It is a rare 1907 brick house on a hillcrest with perfect proximity to downtown Victoria, transportation and walks. I have worked to return this home to its glory for the last 13 years and am so proud to share its restored charm with guests.

We are active users of vacation rentals throughout the world as well. We like to provide the same care and attention to your stay as we have appreciated when we travel.

Cozy and charming!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I plus our boxer dog stayed in Pat and Karl's "cottage" suite and it was absolutely perfect for our holiday. One of the best pet friendly places we've ever stayed in! Nice and private with everything you need, and the location is perfect. Pat and Karl were tremendous hosts and made sure we had everything we needed. We've been coming to Victoria every 2 years for the VISAs cricket tournament, and we know next time we will definitely book here again. Highly recommended!!!

Great hosts, great house, great location

  • 5 of 5
I cannot say enough about Pat and Karl. They are extremely warm, welcoming, and helpful. The house is in a great location, about 15 minutes on foot from Wharf street the fast way, or 20-25 minutes the extremely scenic waterfront way. We rented the top floor of their heritage house for an entire month and our family of 3 (plus a number of relatives who visited us during our stay) were very comfortable, and very sad to leave. Definitely recommended, and we will look to stay here again if and when we return to the Queen City.

Thanks again for everything Pat & Karl!

Could not have found a nicer place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
My husband, 4 year old daughter and I stayed here for 9 nights during our move to Victoria. The place was ideal - it had all of the amenities of home, with fantastically welcoming hosts (and is quite reasonably priced!). The location was great too, only minutes away from buses (which are cheap and frequent here), shops, restaurants, walking paths, and the ocean. We stayed in suite 13, which Pat may claim is small, but was suitable for our needs. She and her husband went out of their way to take care of us. We would highly recommend it!

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Suite #9 and had a fantastic time. The place is far bigger than any hotel you'll find and much cheaper too. It's about a 15 minute walk from downtown and has a nice view of the bay from the front yard and kitchen window. Pat was very friendly and helpful.

I've rented thru VRBO.com all over the world, and I have to say this is one of my favourite rentals. The location is ideal - about a block from a plaza with groceries, liquor store, specialty stores. A block past that, and you're on the waterfront - Galloping Goose trail in one direction, Gorge Waterway walking trail in the other direction.

The suite itself is delightful. Warm & welcoming, bright & spacious. VERY well-equipped. I did a full Thanksgiving dinner here for my family, and didn't find myself short of anything! I love the full formal dining room - it added to our comfort & enjoyment of our turkey dinner!

Pat & Karl, owners, are friendly & helpful - I thoroughly enjoyed my conversations with them. Also, being able to bring my Suki (my West Highland terrier) with me on my visit to Victoria just added to my enjoyment. Suki had the doggy door figured out within about 5 minutes! A fully-fenced yard for her to roam in was an added bonus.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this suite, and in fact, I've already booked for 2 more visits! If I have my way, this will be the only rental I use when visiting Victoria.

This apartment is clean, bright, interesting and exceptionally well located. Just a few blocks from both inner harbour and outer harbour. Bike rentals and access to Galloping Goose trail are nearby (recommended). Groceries, bank etc all within a couple of blocks. The owners are conscientious hosts, very friendly and knowledgable about Victoria. No surprises with apartment - exactly as shown in listing and photos. We stayed at this apartment for a month and were sorry to leave!
