Lovey place, Inspiring, Best location in Victoria.

  • 5 of 5

You can't ask for a better location. It's centered right in heart of Victoria. The apartment is warm, bright, inviting, and exceptionally inspiring with it's maple wood furniture and decor. Lots of storage space and nicely laid out. It's quiet, and my experience was virtually problem free. Loved the style of this place.

Deposit was promptly returned.

Charming Building, PERFECT Location!

  • 5 of 5

This sparkling CLEAN & SPACIOUS studio is an easy few minutes walk to major Victoria attractions, world class restaurants, bakeries & chocolate shops. The locally famed Canoe Restaurant & Brewery, with it's lovely harbour side seating and tasty pub style menu, is right across the street. The studio kitchen is well stocked, but with all the food options available we used it only for light breakfasting. The good sized patio, endless HOT water, complimentary long distance service & bicycles were all pluses. Make sure to check out the views from the roof. Put this one on your short list!

Awesome Location

  • 5 of 5

I had a lovely stay at this suite for 3 months this past winter.

It is perfect for location being right on the inner harbor as well as walking distance to all the sights in Victoria.

The owners are extremely attentive and if I needed anything during my stay, they were right on top of it making my stay as comfortable as possible.

The summer would be wonderful there, as the patio is quiet and private. I definitely recommend this studio for one to two people. I will be back! Thanks so much!!!
