Why Deidre Langlois chose Victoria

The Astoria unit is in an area called Humbolt Valley. It is an area with some new hotels mixed in with historic Victoria. The Empress is kitty corner and the inner Harbour is just two blocks away. So many fun things to do in this area of downtown and you really don't need a car even though a parking spot is included. This is really a great building!

What makes this condo unique

This property is located in the heart of Victoria. Only two blocks from the famous Government Street, one block from Empress Hotel, Royal BC Museum, Parliament buildings, Inner Harbour and so much more!

Fantastic location but not as expected

  • 3 of 5

This condo is in one of the best locations in Victoria - literally walking distance to everything and is in a very secure building. Although it was very hot while we were there, the windows allowed for a nice cross breeze. The bedding was beautiful and there was lots of natural light throughout.

This condo is advertised as a two bedroom but really, it is a one bedroom plus den and the overall size reflects this. The condo is advertised to sleep 6 but with a family of 5 (my kids aren't even teenagers yet!), I don't know how you would possibly accommodate 6 people in this space. The condo advertised that only "personal items" are needed. And yet, one sample size shampoo was provided for 5 people for 4 nights. The amount of laundry detergent provided was only sufficient to get the loads of laundry started as requested by the owner.

Yes, I could have requested more supplies but honestly, after paying a cleaning fee (standard, no objections there), booking fee AND a service fee adding considerably more to the nightly rate plus tax, I expect things to be as advertised.

The instructions on how to access the building and operate everything inside were well laid out and easy to understand. I'm sure a couple or smaller family would do fine for a night or two - just don't expect to sleep 6 for a week.

Owner's Response: We are glad to hear you liked the location of this unit, the check in process and everything inside, but sad you were not completely happy. We pride ourselves on keeping a well stocked laundry room so this is too bad there was not a lot of soap left for you, but would have preferred you to use the remaining soap to do your personal things instead of saving it until check out to do the sheets/towels. We hope that you were able to do some of your laundry too. When you don't book your holidays directly with the owners/managers many of the sites now charge the guest a direct fee. We as owners/managers have no say over this, we did not start the fee and we don't ever see any of this. When you book directly on their sites and not on ours it can be confusing as to where this guest fee goes. We as owners/managers only charge the rental fee, cleaning fee and of course the processing fee for payment. Regarding the 'only bring your personal items', perhaps we should reword this as we include this into the arrival instructions thinking all beauty products as 'personal items' and the shampoo and conditioner are there only as complimentary items in case you forgot your own. Hotels are generally better equipped than vacation rentals if you are wanting these things. This is small unit at 750 square feet and were sorry to hear it was not big enough for your family of little ones. Hopefully they were able to enjoy the pool table and TV room in the common area of the lobby as a little extra space. As always, we thank you for staying with us and appreciate you taking the time with your comments for us and future travelers.

Nice central retreat after days of sightseeing.

  • 5 of 5

Dierdre was very helpful when I couldn't reach me info as was having phone troubles in Canada.

The apartment was clean and perfect for our group. The central location was great, as we did not need a rental car. Nice place to come to after several fun days.

Great place with everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

With a tiny bit of reorganizing it was the perfect home base for our trip with two babies and two toddlers! Walking distance to everything you need - it was wonderful!
