About Steve or Trish

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.

Steve or Trish purchased this condo in 211

Why Steve or Trish chose Victoria

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.

What makes this condo unique

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

We owe Steve & Trish many thanks for a totally awesome month in their Courtyard Suite. This was our first visit to Victoria and we will definitely be returning. After a long day of travel, we were extremely pleased to see the fresh fruit and basics we needed for breakfast. From the minute we walked into that suite, we were comfortable. Everything was immaculate! And wow...was that bed comfortable! So comfy that we slept in every morning, and that is a rarity for us!

The kitchen is so very well equipped with upgrade pots, pans, utensils, dishes, and every spice you might need. It was super enjoyable to make most of our meals at home, and that is exactly what we had hoped for.

The very first week we were there, I had to seek medical care. Steve & Trish were very helpful providing me with info in regards to a clinic, as well as hospital care, should I need it. We just never felt stressed because we knew that they were only a phone call away.

We always felt very safe and comfortable in that location, with the building being security controlled.

Steve & Trish; thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

A super month in the Courtyard Suite

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Courtyard suite for a whole month. It was wonderful. Steve and Trsi were super hosts and even provided all the basics needed to have breakfast the next morning, including fresh fruit and good coffee. Our suite had absolutely everything we needed. We enjoy cooking and found the quality and variety of cookware, utensils, dishes and glassware to be excellent. This suite is equipped with everything you would have at home and we soon found ourselves feeling totally comfortable. It is beautifully furnished and decorated with a comfortable bed and cozy duvet. The suite is in the newly developed Design District just a short walk from Chinatown. We really loved the location and enjoyed being so close to the heart of the city. The secure underground parking meant that we rarely used the car and put on many miles exploring the city. We would definitely recommend City Life Suites for anyone wanting a classy, comfortable place to stay in Victoria.

Victoria - Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

I was fortunate enough to spend 3.5 months in Victoria. During the time, I chose to rent 3 different vacation rentals. Although each of them were fantastic (for different reasons) and all property managers were top notch.......Steve and Trish from City Life Suites were the perfect hosts! Upon settling in, I discovered that they had left a fresh loaf of bread, cream, coffee/tea and some fresh fruit to welcome me. Such a thoughtful gesture especially for guests who would arrive late. They could at least wake up in the morning, have a cup of coffee and breakfast before starting their Victoria adventure.

Steve and Trish were only ever a phone call away if I needed any questions answered or any assistance. I mentioned to Steve that I was excited to BBQ and he delivered a fresh tank of propane the next morning.

I could seriously go on an on regarding Steve and Trish, but I will simply say.....they started as my vacation rental hosts and now I am honoured to call them my friends. CLASS ACT!

As mentioned, this was my 3rd vacation rental this year and the unit itself is beautifully furnished and decorate. It was "stocked" the best out of the 3. I entertain a lot, so it was nice to have all the extra's (napkins, placemats, wine glasses, matching dinnerware and even champagne flutes) provided.

I would highly highly recommend City Life Suites for your next vacation!

Big thank you Steve and Trish! I will remain in touch!

Owner's Response: Thank you very, very much for your sincere and very supportive reviews Dawn. You were such a wonderful guest, so considerate and always a pleasure to talk to. We hope that your future in the real estate business in Edmonton is a great success and, whenever you need a break, that you will come back and stay with us again. We are truly grateful for your business and, again, thanks for being such a wonderful guest. Take care, Steve and Trish

A great return visit

I have stayed with City Suites three times now and the Courtyard Zen is without a doubt the best I have had. Great comfort and complete kitchen adds to the experience. Within walking distance to shopping in the Govenment St. area and China Town.

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.

This is a secluded suite with a courtyard view. It does not face onto the street, you can hear the sounds of the city when you are seated on the private terrace or in the courtyard garden, but other than that it is very quiet. The suite is not a 'bright and sunny' space, but rather offers a cool and tranquil retreat from the hustle and bustle of the outside world.
