Max guests: 7
Upon arrival we noticed how dirty the floors were. We swept and ended up with large piles of debris such as socks crayons and other weird things. When washing the floor with the provided mop the floor was so dirty we had to wash it multiple times. You said in a previous review that you have professional cleaners. I highly doubt that. There were broken glass outside and inside, cracked tub surrounded. The hot tub is so far away it's not convenient. Location is good, if that's all you are interested.
Great Location, Poor Maintenance
The views and the location of this property were excellent. The layout worked well for us, and there were lots of amenities within an easy walk. However, there were many maintenance issues that made our stay less than perfect. When we arrived we found a note from the previous guests that the toilet had been broken since early in their stay. I emailed the host but never received a reply; we ended up having to make a temporary repair to the toilet ourselves. The grill was almost unusable due to broken burners and decaying grates, and the microwave door was very difficult to open/close correctly. The pull-out couch is so uncomfortable that I think it would impossible to actually use it as a pull-out--fortunately we only had five guests so one of us slept on the couch without using the pull-out. There were lots of other little issues that made the unit feel like it hadn't been cared for. Several multi-bulb light fixtures had only one bulb working. The yard of the ground-level unit was full of garbage and broken toys, which didn't really affect us but contributed to the general feeling that the property was being neglected. Overall the location was great, with easy access to downtown Victoria, and the decks offered fantastic views. With a little care, this place could be stellar!
Nice views, nice location.
The deck has nice views. It's good value for the price. Easy access to downtown just 10 min away. There were a few minor issues that the owner took care and of right away.
My family and I enjoyed staying at this property. There are a lot of stairs, but the suite is a good size and the deck is huge. 7 of us (3 adults and 4 children) spent a weekend and had more than enough space. Would stay here again.
Good location and pet friendly!
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.
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.

About Nic LeBlanc

Nic LeBlanc purchased this House in 2007
Why Nic LeBlanc chose Victoria
We loved this hidden gem of a neighborhood that we found, and also the beautiful views of the mountains and ocean from the property.
What makes this House unique
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.
