About Nic LeBlanc
We placed much hard work in renovating our home and have placed much effort to making a perfect vacation suite that would make the most of the views that it has. We have been relay lucky to find such a great neighborhood within Victoria.
Nic LeBlanc purchased this House in 2007
Why Nic LeBlanc chose Esquimalt
We loved this hidden gem of a neighborhood that we found, and also the beautiful views of the mountains 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.

I stayed for 23 days on Drake and liked the quiet neighborhood and the convenience to downtown and the Cancer Clinic. I also loved the walking distances to a bank, groceries, drug and liquor store, parks and pool. The suite was mostly clean except I found lots of dark hair after my first sweep and the windows and deck furniture were dirty. The fry pans were old and scratched and the bath towels were old and small. The shower stall floors were soft and the bathroom taps dripped. There were lots of stairs up to the suite but no handrails and when it poured rain the runoff from the roof was bad. Otherwise it was comfortable and the landlord was nice and accomodating.
Thumbs up: Wifi, hot tub and a pool, big bedrooms, its a very quite neighborhood, the suite is very cozy,all appliances are in working conditions (with washer and dryer), nice view deck, near to grocery store. Not very far from downtown.Most of all the host/owner is very kind. I am going to recommend their place to my friends.
Could use some work
We had a good time during our stay in this unit. The inside is nice, but the unit could use work in some areas:
- Deck is nice but needs cleaning and some wood has mildewed
- Lighting isn't great and light switches make no sense
- Negative first impression with piles of recycling and garbage cans at the entrance
- Pool needed cleaning so we didn't use it
- Toilet ran non-stop
This house was perfect for our three-generation family trip. We had plenty of privacy, and also lots of open space to share. The outdoor patio was spacious as well. The house was well stocked and comfortable. Nic was available by phone before and during our visit, and took care of everything we needed. We can't wait to visit again! Thanks, Nic!
Exactly what we were looking for
We loved the house! We had a group of 5 and a toddler. It worked perfect for what we needed. Loved being able to relax on the deck. We would definitely stay there again.
Dirty & Decrepit
Where do I even begin.First thing was the long steep stairs up to the unit, where there hundreds of huge jagged rocks balancing along side of the stairway ledge.Unsafe for kids and adults! Then there was the layer of black dust all over the dining room table & chairs. So much dust that my husband left an imprint of where he sat on the chair.The cheap furniture & finishings are falling apart. Baseboards are coming off of the patchy walls.Part of particle board are exposed on the cheap Ikea dining table.The faux leather on the dining chairs is cracking & ripping.The toss cushions are grey & tattered.The once cream coloured couch is grey & black.Then there's the linens.I found somewhere else's hairs on the extra pillows.All of the mismatched linens on the bed & extra linens have a thin velvety feel to them from being so worn down.All the linens also have a musty old smell to them. All of the pillows are lumpy & no more than maybe 1.5 inches thick.There were orange, yellow & brown stains on one of the comforters.There were also yellow stains all over the inside of the pillows. Two of the mattresses had stains on them.The worst was the mattress in the front room.The dark brown stains were the size of sewer covers. One stain at the head of the bed & the other around the middle.Then there's the bath towels of varying colours and sizes, discoloured, tattered & thin. None of the deficiencies above have been fixed or upgraded as the owner has promised past guest.We did bring the dirty linens & dust issues up to the owner. He blamed it on the terrible cleaner & offered to clean it himself while we go out again.We didn't want to have to leave right after checking-in, while the owner cleaned what should have been cleaned before we checked-in.So I cleaned it myself & washed all the disgusting linens in two loads.Fun Vaca! Honeslty seemed like the owner raided a squatters house to furnished this unit.The deficiencies above would have taken him hours to fix & clean. Hours that we were supposed to be using the unit we paid for! I also didn't like that there was no deadbolt or lock from the inside.I didn't feel at ease knowing the owner, who lives downstairs could come in whenever he wanted.Also the walls are paper thin.You can hear the people upstairs talking, laughing, flushing the toilet, running the water.First night I listened to a woman wailing, not crying, wailing, and a boy shouting from 1-3:30am.And the list goes on & on.I will NEVER stay here again.NEVER
Also you will find our location very convenient, as we are minutes from the Esquimalt village area with a variety of shops and services such as a grocery store, bakery, banks, post office, coffee shops, restaurants, pharmacy and much more within a 5 min walk.
