Second visit was as good as the first

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit to Victoria and our second stay at this accommodation. The booking and payment process was efficient and accurate. Communication was prompt with the owner. The accommodation instruction booklet is as thorough as any we have ever seen, outlining instructions for all appliances, ingress and egress, amenities, grocery shopping, places to eat, and local highlights. The pictures are quite accurate - and as this unit is on a corner with glass surrounding the dining table and the living room on two sides, the Parliament building lighting at night is visible.

The location is so convenient to public transportation - to go to/from the airport, and to/from Butchart Gardens. It is in walking distance to the Empress Hotel, the Harbor, Chinatown, the Maritime Museum, the Information Center, the fast ferry to Seattle, the Parliament, and the Royal British Columbia Museum.

The apartment was cleaned thoroughly, and is well stocked with nice linens, amenities and cooking and serving ware. All appliances worked as intended, and the WiFi was strong and reliable.

Would recommend highly and would return should the opportunity arise.

rented this fantastic condo for a month

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place it is exactly as shown in the pictures. It is a perfect location and immaculately clean. It is well equipped for cooking and monthly rentals. Great cooking utensils and clean products supplied. Bedrooms small but nicely furnished with comfortable beds. Bathrooms very nice and master bath is large with great tub. All in all quite lovely. Owner helpful and checking and out perfect. Beautiful view of parliament at night. Great access to many parks walking areas and great shops and restaurants. Couldn't have asked for more. Pool and hot tub not used as it was rainy and out of season but that also looked fantastic. Refund for damage very promptly returned. Awesome rental. We will return if ever in Victoria.

Beautiful modern condo, good location, smooth stay

  • 5 of 5

First I will say that the reservation process was a bit cumbersome, but was totally worth it when the result was a perfectly communicated stay. The concierge was prompt and informative. I do not say this lightly: this is the cleanest house/condo/hotel I have EVER stayed it. Absolutely amazing. We really wanted a 2 bedroom unit for our trip to sleep two adults and two kids and this condo was around the same price as a 2 bedroom hotel at a moderately priced hotel. The bedrooms are small, but adequate. The kitchen is fairly well outfitted and the dining table worked out great for basic meals. The windows are great and while there is a somewhat strange view of the restaurant next door, the night view of the lit up buildings further away was great. The living room area was comfortable. It was in such a convenient location that we didn't drive anywhere during our 3 night stay; unfortunately, this meant that we didn't notice that we'd left a light on and our battery was dead when we tried to leave to catch the ferry! We called the concierge who was so kind - she said we could stay there past our check out time while we had the car fixed and they just cleaned around us! Fantastic. It ended up feeling like a special stay and we would definitely stay here again.

Luxury condo, ideal location

  • 5 of 5

We loved this condo! Beautiful furnishings, luxury baths and linens and so many extras! We could walk to most destinations but also had parking provided for our rental. We had a gorgeous view of the Parliament buildings which were beautifully lit at night, and a partial view of the landmark Empress Hotel. There are lots of great bars and restaurants in the neighborhood, and we enjoyed walking around the inner harbor after dinner. For those who want to cook, there is a beautiful kitchen with just about anything you might need. There was also a washer and dryer with soap and fabric softener provided. This was the most beautiful place that we have ever rented.

Perfect Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our 4 your old daughter just got back from spending 33 days at this amazing condo. We wanted to experience what it would be like to live in Victoria, and not just visit, and this condo fit the bill perfectly. It has everything that you could ever need for a comfortable stay. The kitchen was fully stocked with cookware and even spices so we were able to cook whenever we wanted. The location was perfect with almost everything within walking distance. There's even a mall less than a 5 minute walk away. The only time we took the car out was to go to Walmart for groceries. The condo was set up perfectly and looks exactly like the pictures. The views from the balcony and even the kitchen were amazing especially with the buildings decorated for Christmas. Fernando was great and helped us with everything that we needed. Do not hesitate to book this condo. You will not regret it. We just left 2 days ago and we miss it already.

A wonderful break for a worn out accountant after tax season !

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay and will book again next spring. Location is fabulous. Amenities plentiful. Condo is bright and sunny. Beds are super comfortable. Big screen TV wonderful for evening movies. Parking very convenient and secure. Loved the gas stove as we cooked dinner every evening. Checking in and out was beautifully efficient. Concierge and assistant were great. Fernando , you are a great host. Communication with you was a pleasure.
