The property was wonderful. A great location and had al the amenities of your own home.

  • 5 of 5

Everything was great. Close to many wonderful cafes and we could walk almost evertwhere in Victoria.

The one thing that would complete it (for those of us on long term stay) would be a little vac. The swinger didn't quite do the job. Otherwise fantastic.

Contemporary, Cozy and Romantic

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for allowing us to stay in your suite. It was really nothing short of perfect. The suite was very clean and well thought out. The location was quiet and fantastic for enjoying the amenities of downtown of Victoria.

Although the weather did not allow us to enjoy the rooftop patio, it was a nice option. Personal favourites were quiet moments near the fireplace, and the view of the harbour and its activities over breakfast.

The property manager was also accommodating to our arrival and departure times and very pleasant.

Thank you again and we definitely recommend this property to anyone who would like a combination of exploring the city and quiet time to reset.

Great Location, Stylish apartment=Great Stay.

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful downtown condo. The owner thought of pretty much everything you might need and

the property manager was very helpful with suggestions of places to eat and see. We walked everywhere and took the water taxi on the occasions we were too tired to walk. Victoria was a really fun place to regroup and the condo only added to the relaxing few days we spent here. Loved the rooftop patio with views of the river and crewing teams. We did happy hour up there a couple times and once next door at Canoe. Have breakfast at Jam at least once during your stay!

Gorgeous condo in a fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

I can't imagine wanting or needing anything more than this condo has to offer. The location is fab - amazing view - and great coffee shops, restaurants and shopping are all walking distance (although we really appreciated the parking stall in the secure underground parking which was included in the cost of the rental). The building itself is very secure - I called it the Fortress of Solitude as my husband and I enjoyed a drink together on the balcony while watching the harbour activity below.

The decor is outstanding - everything so beautiful - and I loved the tasteful mermaid touches. We've stayed in my holiday accommodations where the bedding is like a hodge-podge of stuff - in this condo the sheets, blanket and duvet cover/decorative cushions were gorgeous. The place was decorated by someone with style!

Additionally it is very well equipped - same thing about the dishes - really nice and matching pieces - no assortment of whatever bowls/glasses/mugs that have ended up there, like so many vacation rentals.

Check-in/check-out was seamless and quick and easy.

Thanks again - we'll definitely be back and plan to stay longer next time. I was sad to leave this cool and trendy place!

A very modern well maintained property with so much harbour entertainment at your doorstep.

  • 4 of 5

I had a wonderful experience and was impressed with how lovely the overall appeal was in this condo. I felt very comfortable and loved my view of the harbour and Gorge. There was immediate response to one little problem I had and and no other issues following that. The parking could be a bit of a challange but only if the renters drive a large truck or similar vehicle. I have a fairly large SUV and made out fine. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for relaxation and adventure within the downtown core of Victoria. I surely plan a return visit myself!

Great condo and location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the Victoria condo for a week in June. We were impressed at the location and the condo interiors. It was a relaxing space and we felt at home. The information folder was very useful. We went to many of the attractions, The Butchart Gardens, Butterfly exhibit and whale watching. We highly recommend Eagle Wings for that excursion. We found that we should have made dinner reservations for many of the nicer restaurants earlier in our stay. The breweries were delicious and we enjoyed many local craft beers.

The location was great and we enjoyed the small balcony to watch the activity on the water. The water taxis were right outside our door. We could walk most places but enjoyed the freedom of having a car.

We definitely recommend this condo.
