Lovely private garden retreat

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I had a great stay here and really enjoyed the quiet garden setting. The suite was fully equipped and it was easy to prepare our own meals. The bed and other furniture was very comfortable and it was so convenient to be able to do our laundry while staying here. We found the location to be very convenient for exploring neighbourhoods, beaches and accessing downtown. If you have any mobility challenges, be aware that there is a short exterior flight of stairs down to the suite. We highly recommend this flat and would definitely stay here again.

A lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Die schönste Wohnung auf unserer langen Reise. Sehr gemütlich mit bestem Standard und Ausstattung in ruhiger, wunderschöner Umgebung mit liebevoll gepflegtem Garten. Ein Ort an dem man sich sofort wohl fühlt. Sogar für das erste Frühstück hatten Cathie und Ron alles vorbereitet. Sogar selbst gemachte Konfitüre von Früchten aus dem eigenen Garten, einfach wunderbar. Wenn wir könnten, würden wir gerne einen sechsten Stern vergeben. Danke an Cathie und Ron für unsere Wundervollen Tage in Victoria.

I would stay here again

  • 5 of 5

Waterloo Gardens is an excellent place to stay when visiting Victoria. The place has everything you would need for a very comfortable stay. The gardens in back arez beautiful. We found getting into and out of Victoria very easy which somewhat surprised me since this was our first visit to the city.

If and when we return to Victoria we would definitely want to stay at Waterloo Gardens.

12 out of 10!

  • 5 of 5

An excellent accommodation in all aspects. Nothing has been overlooked. Well equipped, tastefully furnished, and generally perfect. We were greeted by a charming and helpful young lady. The fridge was stocked with everything we needed and the garden was spectacular. What more to say? I'm tempted to recommend to everyone I know but fearful that it may become too popular! Many thanks for making our stay in Victoria so splendid.

Cheers,

Alison Wright & Donald Munro

Would absolutely stay here again, and highly recommend this property to my friends.

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to stay. Really can't say enough good about this property or the hosts. Cathy has thought of everything. The kitchen is fully equipped, super comfortable bed and sitting room. We ate all our meals on the patio surrounded by beautiful gardens. Location is good, on a street with near zero traffic. Nearby bus connections to anywhere in Victoria.

Thank-you Cathy for being a great host and providing such a great place to stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing to stay here with us at Waterloo Garden. We appreciate your comments too! We did our best to make sure the kitchen contained "everything" a person could possibly need to enjoy a great stay. We know a comfortable night sleep is highly important too so we selected the best quality mattress that we could! We are so pleased that you enjoyed being immersed in our garden oasis. Thanks for mentioning the convenient location and that public transit is just steps away. You were such wonderful folks to have here. Thank you for taking such good care of our suite too. You are welcome back anytime!!!!
