Wonderful, Convenient Suite

  • 5 of 5

This beautifully decorated suite is the perfect home base for a stay in Victoria. Gillian is a lovely and helpful hostess and her family and neighbourhood are quiet. The kitchen is completely stocked and the suite is close to grocery stores if you want to do your own cooking. Convenient to down town Victoria , too!

Fantastic quiet convenient suite!!

  • 5 of 5

This suite was even better than I expected! It's bright, clean and warm with its own private entrance. The view and access out to a lush back yard with beautiful gardens and its own little patio area was very enjoyable. Staying in this small convenient community while staying in a big city made my trip!

A nice bright comfortable suite with all the extras.

  • 5 of 5

This little suite is extremely comfortable with all the extras to make it feel like home. Though it is the lower level of a house, the large windows out to the garden make it feel light and airy. The kitchen is well stocked and the furnishings are well placed for a relaxing stay. It's a great area for walking and easy to get to downtown and the harbour.

Great location, nice space, and super owners!

  • 5 of 5

I definitely recommend this property!

We were late coming in due to the plane fuelers striking in Toronto... real late. By the time we arrived at the property it was creeping toward midnight.

The property owners were exceptional. Very understanding. We were met at the curb, giving a brief tour, and were made to feel welcomed, even at that late hour.

The suite was very clean, nicely furnished... the bed was comfortable.

My husband and I got up early in the morning to explore. We walked down the hill and found an amazing path that skirted the water and went into town. 2 blocks from the house, we spotted a pretty little brown deer grazing in the neighbor's yard. I had my camera - there was a huge variety of wildlife to be seen all along the path. Simply wonderful. My husband found coffee and we watched the float planes come and go.

We spent the day exploring the island, going to various beaches and visiting with locals. People were very friendly.

Then we returned to the house with cheeses, fruit and wine. We gathered our feast and sat on the little back patio enjoying the fresh evening air.

Thank you! It was really that nice.
