Not great!

  • 2 of 5

The living space here is really tiny! We knew it would be compact, but were still surprised at how small it was; although the bedroom is huge (strange utilization of the space!). The kitchen is stocked with a mishmash of unmatched dishes and cutlery, and was not particularly clean. The tiny bar fridge had not been defrosted in quite some time. The bed was ok, but the pillows were old and awful. Although we were disappointed with the accommodations, the location was handy - but a long walk to downtown and the inner harbour.

Owner's Response: The living space was adequately described and the guest knew that the living room was small. "mishmash of unmatched dishes" is not very helpful or descriptive, next time I will change it to this guest's liking if they give me design preference. Also, what does "not particularly clean" mean? Was it clean or not? I know it is clean and get compliments all the time on how clean it is. The fridge was defrosted about 3 weeks earlier. Two pillows were brand new memory foam pillows and the other two were regular new pillows. Is 15 minute walk to the inner harbour too long? The address was known and was also in the description. Since the guests were planning to have dinner outside, I provided them with a propane space heaters and outdoor furniture. It is impossible to please some guests.

Great one bedroom suite in the James Bay area

  • 4 of 5

This suite is in the perfect location. My daughter and I walked everywhere: exploring downtown, fisherman's wharf, harbour front, easy bus access, and food options (including a grocery store). Tom was a very kind and helpful host offering help when needed and giving us space to enjoy our suite and vacation.

The suite is looked after well and has an adequately stocked kitchen allowing us to prepare small meals when we were in. There was enough room for the two of us to be comfortable during our stay. The pictures posted on this listing do represent the suite (and house it is attached to). The suite looks out, and is accessed from, the lovely backyard.

I would stay here again and recommend to others to stay at Tom's place.

We enjoyed our stay!

  • 4 of 5

Small, clean, efficiency apartment - thoughtfully decorated and equipped (not intended for making big meals) with a backyard with lots of fruit trees and a friendly pup. Nice neighborhood - that's mostly quiet, except for seagulls and when the helicopters are taking off and landing. Tom was very friendly and helpful and postponed construction on house while we were there (which we really appreciated).

Great place for a great price.

  • 4 of 5

The house was fantastic for 2 people. Tom was welcoming,friendly, and helpful host. The location is super close to everything you could ever need. Great stay! Only thing that took me by surprise at first was that it was a basement suite type of place, but it was perfect for two!

Owner's Response: The suite is definitely NOT a basement suite, it is ground floor suite, there is not even one step leading into the basement, we do NOT have a basement. All the windows and door open into the garden.

Centrally located, clean and well appointed with all you could expect in a studio apt.

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean and well cared for. The room was perfect for a couple. I liked the bed but my wife said it was too soft for her. It was centrally located for easy access to all areas of Victoria. Tom was friendly and helpful. I Would stay again if I needed a place in Victoria.

Great Place to Stay in Victoria!

  • 5 of 5

Tom was a great host and the apartment worked out well. It was very clean and comfortable. It also had a terrific location; close to many of the sites. I'd recommend it to friends and plan to stay there again the next time we're in Victoria.
