                  About the owner: Steve and Trish Young have traveled extensively and know how important it is to find clean, well maintained premises coupled with welcoming amenities, when staying in accommodations away from home. We have tried our very best to ensure that's what you'll find when you stay in one of our comfortable and convenient vacation rentals in downtown Victoria. 'We love what we're doing and have made many wonderful friends who come back to stay in our properties, year after year.'

                  Why the Owner Chose Victoria:
                  This is absolutely the best location one could find in downtown Victoria. Close to just about all tourist amenities, just a couple of blocks from Victoria's Inner harbour and the Government Street shopping area. It is so convenient to everything....we suggest that you please read our guest book to find out what our guests say about the location of our Metro Suite.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  We always meet our guests 'in-person' to make them feel welcome and to get them settled-in comfortably to their new surroundings. We provide milk, bread, fruit, water, tea and coffee so that our guests have the 'fixin's' for breakfast on their first morning.
