Everything was newly redone, including a brand new kitchen with new shaker cabinets, eat-in peninsula, granite counters, stainless steel appliances, plus dishwasher. The bathroom is redone with new tiles, new vanity and granite countertop. The hardwood floors are all newly refinished.

The suite comes fully equipped with brand new furniture, appliances’ and everything else you need to enjoy your stay in Victoria.

Clean, comfortable and wonderful place.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, clean and comfortable studio perfectly located between downtown and UVic, with bus stops one corner away. Bathroom is nice and new, and the apt is well-furnished with dishwasher, iron, and hairdryer.

Nearby we found a nice park, a gluten-free bakery (Origin, on Pandora st), café, pub and convenience stores.

Overall a wonderful place where we had a memorable week.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

First time to use VRBO and it was a great experience. Martin was so accommodating. He made the process so easy. Our accommodations were great. We were about a 30 minute walk downtown. There is a great restaurant across the street as well as great pizza.

Cozy little apartment!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were in Victoria to attend a family wedding. We had never used VRBO before and were not sure exactly what to expect. Martin was very patient with us with our inquiries before we decided on the Fort Street location (he manages several other rentals in the city). Everything was there that you could want for a comfortable stay. There was even coffee in the cupboard to start us off the next morning! Off street parking was a bonus as we were borrowing our brother-in-law's car for the duration.

All in all it made for a memorable trip as we felt at home in short order, were able to have the use of a full kitchen, off street parking included and close proximity to downtown ( with a vehicle)....hated to leave at the end of our stay!!!

Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was my first vacation rental experience and it was amazing! The suite was stylish, comfortable and clean. Way better than a hotel room... The location was great, very central. I had a nice meal across the street at Shine cafe. I drove to both Downtown and to ocean in James Bay in under 5 minutes. Checking in was simple and straight forward. Highly recommended!

Ideal "home away from home"!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment, perfect central location. Clean, cozy suite - well-stocked with all the necessities to make one's stay comfortable. I did run into a little hiccup upon my arrival, but Martin answered my text msg almost instantly, and was quick to address my concerns.

I generally travel with my little Westie, and this location is ideal. A short block from Stadacona Park for walks, as well as the Governor's house about 10 mins away. I was a little concerned that, being on Fort St., I'd be dealing with traffic noise. But the suite is on the back side of the house, so it was very quiet.

On the fringe of Oak Bay, restaurants are plentiful. Beacon Hill Park is a few kms away. Shopping is close, as well as downtown with all Victoria has to offer! Craigdarroch Castle is a few mins walk, and the beautiful character homes in the area are worth a look.

I'm keeping this suite in my list of "returns" - I'd definitely recommend it & I wouldn't hesitate to rent it again.

A wonderful stay in a wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

I've always wanted to visit Victoria and had a lot of pent up anticipation for this trip, which in my experience can be the perfect set up for disappointment. But to my great joy, everything turned out better than dreamed of. We stayed in a lovely furnished suite on Fort just a few blocks from downtown. We had a small grocery store a block away and the bus at the corner. But the best part was that this suite was beautifully furnished and perfectly equipped for our two week stay. The place is an old stately home that was turned into suites. Loved it. And will visit again.
