Recent The Islands property reviews

  • Lovely condo in a great location!

    "What a lovely place to call home while visiting beautiful Victoria! Fantastic location - close to the inner harbor, Royal BC museum, Parliament, several parks, and restaurants. We enjoyed being able to walk everywhere! The condominium is very well appointed with lovely furnishings - cozy and comfortable - even a Keurig coffee maker. Nice views from the balcony to the gardens below. The owners were quite accommodating and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!"

  • Beautiful apartment with one qualification

    "On a positive note the apartment is of a very high standard -we did not want for any extras and everything worked well .It was very convenient having the parking garage in the basement (especially when we saw cars being ticketed in the street outside ) .It was only a 10 min or so walk into town .It was also great to use the water taxis-which we did a number of times especially when we discovered Spinnakers bar/restaurant on the other side of the harbour .Canoe Pub was very convenient downstairs -there was some noise from downstairs when there was live music but it was generally over by 11.30pm. On a negative note when we were there it was very warm ,the apartment does not have air conditioning and even with the fan on and all the window blinds down it was like a furnace ,especially during the afternoon /early evening when the sun comes straight in .This meant that we had to sleep with all of the windows and balcony door open .As a result we could hear the tyre noise as cars went over the adjoining bridge for most of the night (the metal grid on the bridge changing the rumble of tyres to a high pitched noise as every car went over ).On the same theme it is not apparent from the photos that the apartment overlooks a construction site where the new bridge is being constructed (with the signs saying this will continue until 2016 ) . As a result we were woken very early every morning as the construction work started-on one memorable morning they decided to start spraying water to keep the dust down at 6.30 am as the water cart beeped loudly every few seconds . So our overall positive experience of the interior of the apartment was somewhat spoiled by the outlook and construction noise-maybe we were just unlucky and chose a particularly hot spell .Perhaps photos of the surrounding area could be chosen that show the views from the apartment"

  • Fantastically relaxing stay

    "This is a bit delayed as we enjoyed our long weekend back in April but nonetheless I feel compelled to send up a short note. Being first time VRBO users, we were a bit hesitant but it all worked out amazingly easy and Scott worked with me on translating the cost from Canadian to US. The condo is just beautifully seaside inviting, spotless and quiet. There is absolutely nothing you need to bring other than food and a good book! We stayed up and listened to the surf at night, woke up late in the morning listening to the birds, cooked most of our meals there, went to the pub down the road one night and had hot coffee every morning on the deck (thanks for the blankets on the chairs!). We were looking for a place to unwind and this was just the right ticket. We will be back for sure! Oh.. and the otters...hysterically sweet little creatures!"

  • Excellent suite with a view

    "Superb and comfortable suite close to Sidney, the Victoria airport and a reasonable driving distance to the city of Victoria and other sights. All the comforts of home and a helpful host on hand to offer directions and advice if needed. Resident deer wandered the property from time to time, much to the delight of my family. We would gladly return for another visit!"
