Bright and clean well appointed in fantastic location of Oak Bay.

  • 5 of 5

Great location in Oak Bay Area of Victoria. First time to Victoria and Barry and Aaron of The Village restaurant were very accommodating in making recommendations of places to go. Just a minute walk down the street is the Willows Beach with incredible sand and gorgeous views. Very walkable area and lovely views wherever you go. City transit is very accessible just up the street. We took the city transit each day into downtown and even to the Butchart Gardens. The Brunch included with our stay was amazing . Can't say enough about how wonderful our stay was and will definitely be back to visit again and will highly recommend the condo at The Village in Oak Bay to family and friends. Thank you again for making our mother and daughters vacation to Victoria such a memorable one. 😎💕🌸👙☕️😊🇨🇦🦌🍷🐳🦅

Great little place steps away from Willows Beach!

  • 4 of 5

What a great little place! Easy to get to and access. Clean and comfy with exactly what you need for a getaway! Close to so many waking paths and the beach. It got a little noisy in the mornings but nothing ear plugs don’t solve! Thank you Kirsten!

The perfect fit!

  • 5 of 5

This little apartment was the perfect fit for myself and three kids! An older building with perfect character, updated with a modern touch. Bright and really clean, we immediately were at ease. After a long day of travel, we were met at the door by the wonderful owner and given the key. Once inside, we were blown away when we saw the fridge, and table stocked with snacks (all my families staples not to mention!). We were in love with the neighbourhood, and the piano just outside the door. We were here for a family gathering, so we didn't have the chance to eat at the restaurant, unfortunately. I was sold on this place when I read how close it was to Willows Beach, one of my favourite places since I was a kid. It was so fun to be able to walk there with my own kids (a piano there too!). And the little bakery across the street was a nice little bonus too :)

Our trip to Victoria this summer was to say goodbye to my grandpa. Our stay at Kristin's place was perfect. Each night we came back and felt so comfortable, and safe. It's a very quiet street. We would love to stay again, and are already planning our visit for next year. The communication was excellent, from start to finish. We hope everyone loves it as much as we did! Thanks from the bottom of my heart in helping make our tough time so great ❤️

Super cute place!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here! Everything was very clean and it had everything that we could possibly need with our 2 kids. Location was awesome. The Brunch was delightful and the goodies left for us when we got there were so thoughtful! The only thing that might be nicer were black out blinds as the street lights were quite light during the night.

Thanks so much!

Generous hosts, quiet, clean and cute space near Victoria's best beach. We loved it.

  • 5 of 5

We came from Vancouver with our one year old daughter for a few days of visiting old friends and playing at Willows Beach. The apartment was clean and welcoming. The hosts had it stocked with everything from snacks and wine to beach towels and a high chair for the baby. They even left us a box of toddler books and toys.

This was just the blend of hospitality and privacy I like, too. The hosts were available and even had their staff downstairs at The Village at the ready but weren't intrusive at all... speaking of The Village, I hadn't been in a few years but it was every bit as good, maybe better than I remembered. If the Salad Niçoise special is on, do it!

This rental was flexible and accommodating. We would love to stay again and we'd recommend it to anyone.
