Perfect home

  • 5 of 5
I had very pleasant experience staying at this property. We had no complaints during our stay. It was located very close to downtown Victoria, as well as beautiful parks, groceries, coffee shops, etc. The house was spacious enough for 3 adults and 1 toddler, and kitchen was adequately equipped. I'd definitely recommend this property!
