About Pierre Ouellet

My name is Nermeen Alireza. I moved to Victoria 15 years ago from Vancouver and never looked back! My father did the development of the building, and thus retained 3 suites that we operate via VRBO. I work from home and am always available if you need me.

Pierre Ouellet purchased this condo in 2007

Why Pierre Ouellet chose Downtown

I love the character and charm of the building; it is an integral part of Victoria's architectural heritage. Each suite is unique and has interesting features of the original structure. I love the architectural design and all our guests tell us how wonderful it is to stay here.

What makes this condo unique

When you stay in our suites, not only will you admire the marriage between old and modern architecture, but you will also enjoy a spacious and functional condo in the heart of downtown Victoria!

Comfortable apartment but.....

  • 4 of 5

I would like to give this place five stars but the bed's mattress is much too hard and the sofa bed is uncomfortable to sit on. Also the windows are not well-insulated so the noise from the busy street is annoying especially at night. Everything else was just fine.

Downtown location, spacious. Just what we needed.

  • 5 of 5

having travelled 3500 km in 2 weeks we needed somewhere to relax and explore. This place ticked the boxes and has everything you need to either cook all meals or whatever. Try Market on Yates, it has some fantastic bung in the oven dinners.

The apartment was everything it said it was going to be, the sofa bed is a wee bit small for two teenagers but not a drama.

Apartment was a little hot, air con machine either wasn't working or I was too stupid to work it but it has windows.

Ideally located for downtown, 5/10 minute walk depending on where you want to be.

We really liked Victoria and this would be a good place to stay if the town is your primary choice to stay. Parking is provided & you need it.

Excellent spot, building and unit

  • 4 of 5

The condo is right in the heart of downtown, about 3 blocks from the water. If you like the windows open and don't mind seagulls all night, you should be OK.

The ceilings are very high, the bathroom is oversize and the walk-in closet is huge. Several of our visitors said that they could easily make it a home. The condo feels very large and comfortable. There are plenty of closets, electrical outlets and cupboards and a full kitchen. It was clean and well-supplied.

There were a few downsides, mainly on the service, and easy to fix. First, it was a rare very hot week in Victoria. A window AC was there, but we were told that it was not working, so they got us a fan. Secondly, there were a couple of deficiencies on check-in, such as a missing bulb in the pendant lights and a fridge that rocked enough to spill something inside. We were told they would be looked after, and they confirmed that we were OK with them coming in. By check-out, 6 nights later, it had not been done.

The mattress definitely needs to be replaced. One corner appears to have completely collapsed and the whole thing is wavy.

There are no drawers for clothes, and no shelves in the closet. They should put in a bureau or some shelves or even a closet organizer.

These were not enough to make it a bad experience. We enjoyed being downtown and close to everything in a comfortable place. Overall, we enjoyed our stay very much.

Will be staying here again in the future and definitely recommend for others wanting to stay in downtown Victoria. Close to everything.

Great Victoria condo

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just finished staying for five nights. The condo was exactly as described. Nermeen was very helpful and willing to make great recommendations. Yes, there is some street noise. Yes, the crows and gulls begin early in the morning. But, you're in downtown Victoria. We grew accustomed to the neighborhood sounds. The location made for a great home base for walking all over downtown. We loved it.

Great location, great space!

  • 5 of 5

Just stayed 2nights, and this was the perfect location in Victoria. We parked the car and never had to drive for the whole stay. We did all our sightseeing, brewery tours, restaurants, etc on foot, this location is perfect for it all!

The unit was stocked with everything we needed, and the perfect size for my

Husband, 5month old and myself.

Nermeen was so kind an accommodating, and so quick to respond! She made the renting process seamless and even helped us with our luggage upstairs!

Can't wait to stay here again!
