There are two flights of stairs to reach the suite. Guests with difficulty climbing stairs may which to inquire about our ground level suite. This property is also family friendly.
I placed much hard work in renovating our home and have placed much effort to making a perfect vacation suite that would make the most of the views that it has. We have been relay lucky to find such a great neighborhood within Victoria.
The Owner purchased this house in 2007
We loved this hidden gem of a neighborhood that we found, and also the beautiful views of the mountains and ocean from the property.
We enjoy all this neighborhood offers within walking distance, a recreation centre, a library, grocery stores, various shops, restaurants, a kids play park, and a short walk to Saxe Point park on the ocean. The large decks provide a good deal of enjoyable outdoor space, with a wonderful view of the ocean and mountains. This is a very safe and friendly neighborhood that is centrally located.
We enjoyed our stay at this suite. It is conveniently located in Esquimalt. Being pet friendly was a huge plus for us especially having the grass area on the upper level. There is a lovely view up top but unfortunately we stayed in March so wasn't able to enjoy the deck area but would be a lovely spot in the summer to hang out. The suite is neat and quiet at night.
The only downside is the trek up the outside stairway to the entry door and then the flight of stairs inside the unit. We were pre warned about the stairs but we had lots of groceries and luggage to pack up to the suite. Overall our experience was good, the owner was friendly and answered my email questions promptly. We would stay here again.
We stayed for January and February. This unit was perfect for us. We love to cook, entertain and this condo was well stocked and laid out great for both. Close to stores and a nice walk thru park to bus stop. The views and sunsets from the decks were awesome. Nic and family were very gracious hosts and quick to respond to our needs...which were few!
Would stay here again!!
The property on the inside was accurately portrayed by the photos. It is a small space with all the basic amenities, furnished very inexpensively with Ikea furniture. The pull out sofa bed mattress was very thin, you could feel every coil, very uncomfortable for sleeping. A foam mattress topper would be a nice addition. The bedroom pillows in both rooms were very thin and lumpy they all need replacing. The biggest disappointment was the outdoor living space. The pictures do not accurately represent this space. There was no hammock, no umbrella, and the deck was filthy. I get that trees drop leaves and that the deck needs to be swept frequently but it was much more than that. The glass table had not been wiped down at all and had a huge sticky spill on it along with bird droppings. The cushions were covered in dirt and bird droppings it was really bad. The glass balcony railing was so dirty you could hardly see through it. The hot tub was hardly accessible do to dirt and debris around it. Not a garden oasis by any stretch. Overall a big disappointment.
I will say the owners were easy to deal with and the location is very accessible to downtown.
The unit was very clean and exactly as advertised. Easy access to transit, grocery store, restaurants, and recreation centres. All of the appliances worked great, no issues with noisy neighbours, great neighbourhood. Nic was very prompt at answering emails which made checking in and out very easy.
The only two things requiring improvement would be to possibly upgrade and/or fix the TV (as previous reviews have mentioned, it has two permanent lines running down the middle) and to provide oven mitts. Both of these were very minor issues. We searched everywhere for oven mitts but couldn't find any so just used dishtowels when removing things from the oven. We might have just not looked hard enough for them
We stayed in the Ocean Aire suite which is on the top level. The suite was clean, the kitchen well supplied with dishes, utensils, appliances; the beds were comfortable; a BBQ was provided, the sunsets from the fairly spacious desk pretty awesome with a wide view of mountains and ocean. An informative booklet told us what we needed to know about the suite and Nic (owner) was very helpful during booking and after. We had wondered about the location, but found it was a nice neighborhood with street parking for guests. The local grocery store was really well stocked and a Serious Coffee was close as well. A good value for a very nice vacation rental. We'll be back!
Our experience staying here mirrors most of the comments already posted. We arrived to find a suite that was very clean and well stocked. There were ample dishes, and linens. The outdoor patio (s0 is the place to spend most of the day to soak in some sun or lie in the hammock. The in-home wi-fi has a strong signal and its availability is a fantastic benefit if you are on an international phone plan.
The place is away from the city and the noise if you are looking for a quiet vacation spot yet close enough to grocery stores, banks and a 10-minute drive back downtown. The access to freeways through the back roads lets one avoid all the downtown traffic getting out of town.
- As someone else suggested, a handrail and lighting around the stairs heading to the top unit.
- The television in the living area has a couple of lines vertically across the screen and may need to be replaced soon.

Have the best of both worlds! We are just a 10 minute drive from the bustling activity of the heart of downtown Victoria yet located in the quiet historic community of Esquimalt, place of shoaling waters. Still part of the Capital Region we are only a short stroll from parks, beaches, shopping, dining, transit, rec centre, library and so much more.
