Hi, we are Teresa and Hunter. We are originally from Edmonton, Alberta. Our family came here for a visit in 2006 and stayed in the downtown area of Victoria. We fell in love with everything about the city and made plans to move here permanently. Just the smell of the fresh ocean air was enough to make us realize that this was where we needed to be. We moved here in 2008 and have never looked back. I am retired from law enforcement. I am now a stay at home mom and raise my 14 year old, who is the youngest of four kids. We spend our time outdoors in the yard and at the beach with our rescue dog. We enjoy meeting the many tourists that come to our beautiful city and learn a great deal from all those we have met in our daily ventures. Victoria is a very friendly city and we have never felt safer then we do here. We live only 15 minutes away from the condo and are available to answer any questions you may have at any time. We look forward to sharing our condo with you and believe you will enjoy your stay as much as we have.
Teresa purchased this Condo in 2016
Why Teresa chose Downtown
We have bought and sold lots of property throughout the years and decided we wanted to do short term rentals so that we can interact with visitors more then we did with long term tenants. After searching in many areas of the city, we felt that this location was the very best for people coming to stay. There is everything you need right outside the secure building. We wanted to purchase a home that we believed would provide the safest, and enjoyable stay for all. A home away from home. This is the perfect place.
What makes this Condo unique
We are on the 6th floor and face both south and east. Sunlight pours in from many huge floor to ceiling windows and a large balcony. It is most relaxing to be out in the sun on the balcony and enjoy a cold drink before or after your daily adventures in the city. Its great to return to a home that you can finish off your day in the pool (seasonal only) or hot tub (year round) ,or get a little exercise in at the complex gym. Then unwind completely in front of the fireplace while watching your favourite TV shows from the two TVs with dozens of cable channels to please everyone, or relax and catch up on your email from the free high speed internet.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Perfect for the 4 of us
This was an ideal home for the four of us to stay. It’s a lovely place from which to explore the city. Very well located. Hopefully we’ll get to stay longer next time.
Near everything you want or need
Had a wonderful week at Teresa’s condo. It is so lovely and has every amenity ever needed. She is a treat to deal with and immediately helpful. Right beside The Empress Hotel....amazing!!!!!
The condo was fantastic. Very clean, great windows and balcony. Teresa was super easy to meet for check in. Thanks!
Teresa was an excellent host, very prompt and kind responses, she was at the condo when we arrived and made us feel very welcome! Very clean condo, everything was in excellent working order.
We couldn’t have been more happy with the place of the location (directly behind Empress Hotel and great views to parliament building).
We appreciated the recommendation for a whale watching company and had an unforgettable experience.
The kitchen is well equipped, a handmixer would be a nice addition...
The parking spot in the garage is very secure.
Beds are really comfortable.
We would stay at this condo in a heartbeat again and hope to return someday.
Every aspect of this reservation from reserving to occupying the condo was 5 star rating. Awesome all the way around!!
Incredible Rental Property
Having stayed in many holiday rentals I feel compelled to write a review on how special this one is.
Teresa could not have been a more helpful host. She greeted us at the entrance to the apartment building and personally showed us around (without being intrusive).
The apartment is stunning and immaculate. I didn’t even get the anti bac wipes out and do an initial run over - it was spotless.
All appliances are of a high standard and there is EVERYTHING you could possibly need plus more. Teresa left little touches which I will leave as a surprise for you to find.
The bed/bath are both large - especially considering it’s an apartment. The office was an added bonus.
We sat on the balcony for every breakfast and with a bottle of wine in the evening. The view of the city hall lit up at night is stunning.
We used the pool and the gym. Although small, the pool was a great wind down for the kids in the afternoon.
The position could not be better. Chinatown and Downtown are walkable and Fisherman’s Wharf (we did the Eagle Winds whale watch and saw several Orca and Hump Backs) is a 20 min walk away. There are plenty of bars and great restaurants and we loved Browns which is literally next door. Happy Hour 3-6!
All in all, I can’t recommend this property enough. Thank you Teresa for letting us stay there.
We are so close to most attractions that you don't need a car, though a secure underground stall is included in your stay. Everything for the kids fun, families, couples and adults only, is all right around the area, most within walking distance. The famous Fairmont Empress Hotel is right across the street, and the popular downtown district is all within minutes from the condo. Too many to mention but information will be available upon check in.
