Spent four months in this fabulous condo
"We stayed in unit 1402 of the Astoria. This condo was very well furnished. The kitchen was very well equipped with good quality dishes,cutlery,pots & pans, etc. The unit was very clean and is located in a very secure and quiet building. It is located right downtown, so we could walk to museums, art galleries, restaurants, etc. Janet and Dan are fantastic hosts and always responded quickly to any request. I would recommend this condo to all my friends and family."

"Firstly, we enjoyed our stay (our 6th different location in Victoria in the past 7 years). The location is great and much about the apartment is first-rate. The linen, towels, appliances, and furniture (save for an overly firm master bed mattress) were of excellent quality and much appreciated.
But there are some items which the owner might want to consider - more cutlery and dishes (we had 4 table knives and not enough dishes/glasses for all 3 daily meals). The remote (required) for the radio had no battery, which we purchased, along with metal tongs and a flipper for the BBQ (the plastic ones would not last long over a fire) plus juice glasses. And the largely empty walls begged out for a bit more artwork.
Any place we have previously stayed in, has a booklet with info about the apartment (wifi password, rules and collection days for garbage and recycling), location of stores/banks/pharmacies, and maps/brochures about local sites. The owner initially verbally gave us the wifi password for the suite below us and coverage was limited until we discovered his error.
Three of the windows on the street side rattle badly with wind or traffic, so much so that we had to stuff cardboard around their edges the first windy night.
Finally, the apartment is located adjacent to one of the busiest roads in James Bay, with many trucks and service vehicles gearing up/down as they approach the short hill nearby - the noise can be quite deafening during work hours.
So, I find it hard to offer 5 stars for this apartment - it is nice, but could stand some attention to details."

East Coast parents with adult children in the West
"Our family of 6 (plus one dog) stayed here for our Christmas celebration. The house was perfect. It was close to everything - parks, dog-parks, downtown, Butchart Gardens, etc. The house offered enough space for the group to have some alone time as well as together time. The kids went canoeing on Christmas day after taking the dog for a run in the off-leash park in the morning. Cooking for a crowd was a treat with the spectacular view from the kitchen. We hope to return in the future."

"We had a lovely stay in this well-appointed, exceptionally clean, and centrally located condo. All of the green features in this LEED-certified unique building made us feel environmentally conscious as well. The cork flooring was our favorite. Lots of pillows, and soft comfortable sheets made sleeping a dream. Thank you so much for sharing your home!"
