Very pleasant surprise

  • 5 of 5

We returned this year to our annual visit to find a brand new kitchen. The new design has made the apartment even more comfortable. We will be returning soon.

Magnificent condo with spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had the absolute pleasure of renting this beautiful condo from December 1st, 2016 to March 31st, 2017. The condo is modern and very well appointed with new gorgeous wood cabinets and appliances. Entertainment system is top notch with new Sony HD TV and large wide selection of HD channels to pick from. The PVR was widely used and thus never missed any of our favorite TV shows. King size comfort bed was delightful always having a wonderful sleep each night.

The floor to ceiling windows that are the full length of this magnificent condo offering a spectacular view that never ceased to amaze us. The condo manager is very attentive and most pleasant with her going the extra mile for us. Thanks Wendy!

The enclosed underground parking was very secure! The entire condo complex was immaculate.

Having once owned a condo that we rented my wife and I always were appreciative of respectful and caring renters. The previous tenant of this condo was simply a filthy slob who did not give a damn! He left piles of garbage bags on the balcony and never cleaned up after leaving fry pans with food charred in them. His filthy clothing left everywhere. How dare he! He was nothing short of being a pig! Thanks to Wendy and her cleaning staff it took them hours of toil and extreme effort on our arrival to restore this condo to its beauty. Thanks Wendy!

For the owner of this beautiful property my wife and I want to thank him most sincerely for allowing us to rent his condo. We are returning next year because we loved it so much! For other potential renters my wife and I encourage those to consider this fantastic condo! Thanks Gerry!

Decent place, too bad management was rude and incompetent... and SCAMMED my deposit

  • 1 of 5

When I leave a substantial cleaning deposit, (on top of a damage deposit) i expect for that cleaning deposit to be used for cleaning. I expect NOT to have to hire an additional cleaner before I leave... well, I left the kitchen a mess, and I got talked to so rudely by management for leaving it a mess, that I was deducted almost half my damage deposit ON TOP of my cleaning deposit.

If I hadn't left a cleaning deposit (that was about about 4x more expensive then it would have actually taken a cleaner I could have hired to do the job) I would have cleaned up before I left, THAT is the point of paying a cleaning deposit.

On top of that, I was spoken to so rudely by the management, and all of this happened AFTER I had over a week of jackhammer construction noise in the unit directly next door that management apparently had NO IDEA about... believe me, 4-5 hours of shouting level jackhammer noise starting at 8:30am in the morning is enough to ruin your vacation pretty quick.

Even after suffering this poor management, I still had my damage deposit scammed. BE CAREFUL with this one, you don't know what you're getting. The owners should probably hire new management on this unit, because the unit itself is not too bad.

Owner's Response: Mr R .arranged to rent my unit through a third party for the months of October and November. During the month of November a next door unit remodelled their bathroom which resulted in a lot of jack hammering. Mr R. was understandably upset as it was constant for most of the day. I was informed of this on Nov 22 and apparently it had been ongoing for 5 days. Mr R. wanted to cancel the rest of his stay and I agreed to reimburse him for 10 days which he agreed to.He neglected to mention this and also neglected to mention he left 17 bags of garbage on the patio, plus a lot of clothing, 9 bags in all including dirty underwear.??? Essentially a pig! Broke most of the wine glasses, left empty liquor bottles all over including under the bathroom sink? Lots of rotten food in the refrigerator and generally left the unit a pigsty. Why any self respecting person would do this is a mystery. If other owners read this beware of Mr R.

Very convenient

  • 5 of 5

Apartment is very convenient for enjoying all Victoria has to offer - not big but very comfortable and well stocked with essentials. We have used this apartment for visits over several years and plan to return in the future.
