About Checked in Victoria

Checked in Victoria has been managing vacation rentals in Victoria since 2008. Our background is in travel marketing providing all our guests with a unique hands on approach to each and every guest.

Checked in Victoria purchased this condo in 2013

Why Checked in Victoria chose James Bay

The Oswego Hotel is a lovely option for a vacation rental as it has the feel of a hotel, but is all self-catered units. If you don't want to cook dinner then just pop down to the bistro and enjoy the menu. There is often live entertainment and a lobby to sit and enjoy comings and goings of the hotel. It is just a block from the Clipper and the Coho so an easy stop for those coming from the US.

What makes this condo unique

This is one of the most unique vacation rental options in Victoria. You benefit from the condo enviorment but with the hotel feel. If you don't want to cook dinner you can just pop down to the lobby bistro and enjoy their menu.

Guestbook comments from the manager

First and foremost, we were most impressed by the first impressions. Walking in the door and seeing the layout, the table set and the overall impression was excellent. We found the “hotel” environment to be completely irrelevant in our overall experience. In fact, the convenience and ambience of their facilities is an advantage. We appreciated the full range of kitchenware and kitchen facilities. The unit was wonderfully quiet. The location was very convenient for our purposes and because it is one block removed from the action, the renter can choose the peace and quiet or easily access the full flavour of the harbour area. We found the unit very practical in terms of space and layout.

The master bed was very comfortable

Nice location

  • 5 of 5

Very nice location with a short walk to the harbor and major Victoria landmarks. The condo was very clean and well appointed. Dedria and Lidia went out of their way to answer any questions we had, and take care of our special request...thanks! Definitely better than staying in a hotel.

Beautiful retreat in the heart of downtown Victoria

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful condo was just the ticket for our recent four-night stay in Victoria. The location in James Bay is ideal for seeing the sights on foot. We didn't rent a car and didn't miss having one.

We took advantage of the well-equipped kitchen and ate several meals in. The 10-minute walk to nearby Thrifty Foods was pleasant and the grocery store had everything we could have wanted or needed -- except for wine, which was available at Spinnaker's wine shop next door.

The condo itself was very clean. My husband and I both found the bed to be very comfortable. When we returned from our first day of exploring, we realized that the unit gets the afternoon sun, which left the place quite toasty. Our second day there, we closed all the blinds before we left for the day and that took care of that small quirk. It's a small price to pay for the beautiful spacious balcony that spans the entire width of the unit and makes it so bright and airy.

The only other thing we could possibly find to complain about was the shower. The luxurious soaker tub has a hand-held shower above it, so you can't really take a traditional shower. Not a big deal to us in exchange for such a quiet (we never heard any noise from any other unit, not even voices in the hallway!), beautifully appointed place.

Interaction with the owners was minimal, which suited us just fine. They were very accommodating regarding making it easy for us to get in the unit. If you are looking for a personal connection with the owners -- little goodies left on the counter or an in-person welcome -- this probably isn't the place for you. We also really like staying in hotels, so we enjoyed being in a hotel with access to hotel amenities without actually being guests of the hotel. If you want a free-standing house in a neighborhood, this might not suit you.

For us, it was pretty close to perfect and we would book this place again in a hot second!

Lovely condo, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with the clean attractive new one bedroom condo. It is well decorated with contemporary furnishings. The building is new modern and well maintained. It's close to many tourist attractions such as the waterfront, the national museum, government building, whale watching cruises, miniature world and more. We enjoyed walking or biking all over the city.

We would definitely stay another time!

Perfect Victoria Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This condo unit was perfect for our family, we found it very comfortable, clean and with the option to cook occasional meals in the kitchen an added bonus. Super convenient location, easy walking access to down town Victoria, and surrounded by a quiet neighborhood with the occasional sound of horse hooves as the carriages go by. We will be back!

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

This condo is exactly as advertised.

We enjoyed walking to the beach, the wharf, or the inner harbour and then returning to the condo for a relaxed cocktail hour on the balcony. The secure parking and amenities provided by the hotel added to the stress-free atmosphere of our stay. If you choose not to cook, there are several nice restaurants within blocks of the condo.

Thank you, Deirdre, for sharing your condo with us.

The Oswego Hotel is located so close to the inner Harbour and downtown but yet in a quiet setting so there is virtually no road noise. This unit has the unique environment of a hotel with the options for room service, spa, gym, restaurant and bar. Also, all the downtown attractions are just a few minuets walk away along with a grocery store.
