We are Steve and Trish, 'the Young's'. We have lived in Victoria, BC for 35 years and are closely connected to this city and all there is to do here.
We own and/or manage a number of lovely vacation rental properties in downtown Victoria and have been operating vacation rentals for 7 + years now.
We manage the City Courtyard Suite for a valued friend who lives outside Victoria and we agreed to do so because this suite is so unique and beautifully appointed.
We have also travelled extensively to many places in Europe, Asia, North Africa, the Caribbean, South Pacific, Australasia, Central America and, of course, all over North America.
During our travels we've learned a great deal about what it takes to make travel lodgings 'the best they can be'. We offer great, central locations, comfortable and spotlessly clean units, many amenities and extra 'added value' items that our guests just absolutely love.
Over the years we have met, and become good friends with hundreds of people from all over the world, and that's really the best part of what we do.
We hope you'll come and stay with us one day so that we can get to know you, too. Who knows, maybe we'll become great friends too.
The reason we manage this property is because it is one of the few properties in downtown Victoria, BC where you can be in the heart of the city and yet you can still escape to an 'inner courtyard sanctum' away from the madding crowds.
Another reason we love this property is that it is:
Just one block from Victoria's Chinatown
One block to the Victoria Public Market
One block to the Victoria Design District
3 blocks to the Upper Harbour waterfront and a Victoria Harbour Ferry Stop
3 blocks to historic Olde Town Victoria
3 blocks to the main Government Street tourist strip
3 blocks to Victoria City Hall and the central business district
5 blocks to the Save-on-Foods Memorial Arena (concerts, hockey games and events)
3 blocks to the beautiful, historic McPherson Theatre (live musical performances, theatre and a variety of acts)
In fact, you would be very hard-pressed to find a more interesting area in which to stay when you visit Victoria, BC.
Private flagstone terrace with BBQ
Patio table and chairs for 6
Access to courtyard garden, walk through the garden to the seating area, sit and enjoy the privacy while the sounds of the city filter in from the streets outside
Beautifully furnished with a deluxe leather couch that opens up into a double sofa-bed, so 4 people can sleep in comfort in the suite.
Large screen TV with high-end Bose sound system so you can hear the fidelity of your music, or the TV, without having to turn the volume up loud.
Beautifully equipped kitchen with everything you need to cook up a storm.
A work desk and chair
Access to free, high speed Wi-Fi
Free phone calls in North America
Free local calls,
Printer, shredder, desk lamp
Free, secure parking in a gated underground garage
A quiet building with great neighbours
The City Courtyard Suite is really well positioned, close to the Gates of Harmonious Interest (entrance to Victoria's Chinatown, the 2nd oldest Chinatown in North America) and adjacent to Victoria's Design District and just one block from the Victoria Public Market.
Walk just 3 blocks and you're at a Victoria Harbour Ferry Stop on the Upper Harbour, adjacent to the Canoe Brew Pub.
There's lots of interesting shopping too, at places like Capital Iron, Chintz's Eclectic Furniture and the shops in Market Square.
All in all, this is one of the most interesting areas of Victoria in which to stay.
