About The Owner

Aloha. I am a interior designer and reside on the island of Maui. I own and operate vacation rental properties on the islands of Molokai and Victoria. I enjoy enhancing guest's experiences by creating beautiful environments.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2008

Why The Owner chose Victoria

Canadians are incredibly genuine and friendly. The inner harbor is an intimate, pedestrian friendly community by the sea where everything is so centrally located, a vehicle is not necessary. Victoria's summers are incredible and the days are long. Everyone is outside. The location of my unit is perfect. Everything you need or want to explore is just a steps away.

What makes this condo unique

I enjoy creating spaces that enhance my guest's experiences. The unit is a true home away from home. Beautiful, high quality furnishings and amenities. The west facing windows captures the day and sunsets and is very private. The roof top patio is large and has a 360 degree views of the city, mountains and ocean. Assigned parking available. Most vacationers arrive into Victoria's inner harbor on a sea plane or ferry which is a short walk to the loft.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I took our first trip to Victoria. Booking this condo was the best choice we could have made. The location is PERFECT!! We were steps from all the restaurants and shops. Also, we had easy access to running trails, water taxis, and bus system. The condo itself had everything we needed and was a comfortable stay. We for sure will choose this place for future trips.Allie, accommodated our early check in, gave us excellent recommendations for area attractions and was a pleasure to do business with. Thanks for an awesome experience.

Perfect for a Couple's Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our long weekend away in Victoria in this adorable loft in its fabulous, central location. We experienced professional check in and check out. The bed was comfortable and the apartment immaculate. The building has an amazing rooftop deck that you should definitely check out at sunset and for morning tea. We do recommend guests bring earplugs, especially for a weekend stay. It's lovely to sleep with the windows open, but the bar scene is within earshot. We appreciated the complimentary parking pass, the central location, the great view and the totally comfortable stay. Victoria is definitely a city with something for everyone, and this loft was a great home base!

Comfort, Convenience, Cleanliness in Central Victoria with short walk to The Empress!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking for a romantic Victoria getaway and we are so pleased that we found the loft. Cleanliness and a great sleep are both paramount to us and it was obvious that this owner really cares. The linens, sheets and amenities are of the highest quality and there were little designer touches and art everywhere. The bed was super comfortable and I was particularly pleased with the great water pressure in the shower. The wifi connection was fabulous, and the designer couch in the sitting room was so comfy that a couple of nights we just lounged and stayed in. We rented bikes for our stay, but if you have a rental car, a car parking stall is included (not easy to find this in central Victoria!). The ceiling to floor windows open on to historical Waddington Alley which is foot traffic only, so you thankfully miss out on traffic noise. I really wanted to find a location near The Empress Hotel and this did not disappoint as it was a very short walk away. You enter through a locked gate in to a private courtyard where you can lock up your rental bikes and then you enter another locked door to the elevator which takes you up to The Loft. We spent quite a few sunsets sipping our wine and watching the boats entering the harbor on the private roof terrace just one floor up. We highly recommend this little Victoria gem. Book early though! If you are lucky enough to stay, try two of our favorite restaurants right in Waddington Alley around the corner: Terrazzo (phenomenal, romantic and super popular among the locals. You will need a booking) and Willie's for the best breakfast ever!

Wonderful Honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I are from Oklahoma, and we wanted to do something a little out of the ordinary for our honeymoon and we settled on Victoria (which was an excellent idea) and ended up in this loft! It was my first VRBO experience so I don't have anything to go off of, but I can definitely say that this loft was everything I hoped it would be.

Location - PERFECT - we bought some bus tickets when we arrived, and we didn't even end up using them all because we could walk virtually everywhere we wanted to go! The loft itself is beautiful and the pictures hardly do it justice. It's in a gated building and we felt much more secluded than we would have in a hotel of twice the cost... I don't think I even recall seeing/hearing any neighbors. In regards to noise from the street, I would say it's just something you have to expect being in a busy part of town, we definitely didn't have a hard time sleeping!

My only critique would be the the property management company. I informed them about 2 weeks prior to departure that my flight will be arriving around 9 pm (they had never asked what time I was arriving, that I recall), and for some reason they kind've panicked and decided to mail me my room keys to Oklahoma so they wouldn't have to meet me that late in Victoria to get me the keys. The keys didn't make it to OK in time, so I ended up having to hunt down my room key at the airport because they decided to drop off a spare key for me to pickup. Ended up being an extra hour of hassle to find the dang keys, after 6 hours of traveling... not what you want to worry about first thing you arrive to your honeymoon destination.

Again, the loft is everything I could have imagined, just be sure you work out all of your arrival/departure details LONG before you get there! Apparently it's a little too much work to get your client's their room key after 5pm.

Owner's Response: Aloha Ryan. I am really happy you ultimately enjoyed your honeymoon at my loft in Victoria. When I read your review I immediately contacted the management company whom I have worked with for several years and are good personal friendsof mine. They identified the challenge and immeidatley put a new policy in place so this will never occur again. I know they reached out to you with their apology and sincere offer for you to return to the island some day soon. All the best in the new year.

The unit was clean and well stocked in the kitchen ie dishes, cutlery, pots and pans. Bed and bath linens were well stocked. Leather sofa could be a little more comfortable but was very spacious. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay whether reading a book or out and about.

Owner's Response: Happy 2014. Glad you enjoyed your stay. You will be happy to know I added new organic upholstery fill to the sofa and it is once again so very comfortable. Hope to see you back in Victoria and my loft.

Such a beautiful loft with awesome location

  • 5 of 5

Wow, talk about a find. This loft is so well designed and the amenities are first class and in abundance. Can't believe you can walk out the front gates of the building and be anywhere you want to be in the heart of the inner harbor and downtown Victoria. We couldn't wait to return to the loft each night and just chill. The building's roof top deck is such a great feature as you can see 360 degrees of the entire city. You do not need a car. Just walk or rent bikes. We come to Victoria often and will definitely book this jewl again. We are thinking about an extended stay and hope we can visit for a full month next summer. Thank you for letting us stay here.
