Our reservation and cancellation policies must be more restrictive than a large hotel since a cancellation is very disappointing to both the guests and to us as, in most instances, we will have turned away other guests who would have reserved the apartment for your dates.
Our cancellation policy states that, "should you fail to use your confirmed reservation, we reserve the right to retain all funds received as liquidated damages until the unit is re-rented at the same rate for the same time period. If the latter occurs we will retain a $100 CAD administrative fee."
We recommend you consider trip cancellation insurance to protect your vacation.
We are required to charge taxes on all reservations. If your stay however is one month plus one night (or more) taxes are exempt.
We accept Visa or Master Card, or if you have a Canadian bank account, we will gladly accept payment via e-transfer.
Rates are subject to change up to time your reservation is confirmed by your deposit.

Why Downtown, Victoria, BC, Canada:
There is an 'energy' in this small pocket of downtown Victoria, BC that can't be found anywhere else. A 'vibrancy' and an international flavor that stimulates one's senses. The City Vibe Suite is located in the middle of the Victoria Design District, Chinatown, The Victoria Public Market and the Government Street tourist strip. There's lots of places to shop for interesting food items, souvenirs, imports, local arts and crafts and regular, everyday supplies. You can walk to almost anywhere in downtown Victoria from here and then return to your comfortable, well equipped suite, relax in front of the large screen smart TV and ease away the rest of the day.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The enclosed Zen Garden in the central courtyard is pretty sweet for sitting and relaxing while you listen to the sounds of the city outside the walls. The proximity to Chinatown shopping and dining is a definite asset. The amazingly efficient layout of the suite makes it a wonderfully comfortable and convenient place in which to stay if you're a couple wanting an affordable, spotlessly clean and well-equipped vacation rental in which to stay while you're in Victoria, BC.
