Melissa Frank and Rod Carroll at City Life Suites Victoria purchased this Condo in 2012
Why Melissa Frank and Rod Carroll at City Life Suites Victoria chose Downtown
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.
What makes this Condo unique
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.

Thanks for taking the time. Hope to see you again soon.
Beautifully appointed with great kitchen, nice furniture and fittings. Perfect central position and very secure. Rod and Melissa very responsive dealing with any issues.
However, it is very hot (I was there in September) as there is no a/c in the apartment apart from a noisy unit in a cupboard that can’t be ran continually and the apartment gets full afternoon sun. Only one window to open for fresh air. A fan in the bedroom helped but still very warm. Would probably be better in the cooler months.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are aware of the apartment being on the warm side and understand your concern, We enjoyed having you and hope to see you again in the future. Hope your travel home was safe and uneventful.

Comfortable, well located apartment in downtown Victoria.
We were very happy with our stay at this property. The apartment was very well equipped. It had all the utensils, pots and pans that we needed. We were even welcomed with some basic food staples to tide us over until we could go for groceries. That was very thoughtful. The furniture and bed were very comfortable. The location was perfect. We could easily walk to all the Victoria downtown sights, bars, and restaurants. The property managers, Rod and Melissa, made the whole process of booking, checking in and checking out seamless. They were very responsive to any questions we had. They were there to greet us, and make sure we knew all we needed to know about the property, and they were there for our checkout to ensure the property lived up to our expectations. It did!

What a great stay!
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our month in Victoria staying in in the City Vibe Suite. It's always a relief when the rental lives up to the promo pictures as City Vibe certainly does. In addition to being well appointed with everything that you need for a short or long stay, the suite is immaculately clean and well maintained. The kitchen/food prep area is fabulous and comes equipped with extras one doesn't usually find in vacation rentals - like roasting pans, a slow cooker, rice cooker, muffin tins and every utensil I needed to prepare and serve holiday meals (Special thanks for the rolling pin, Melissa!).
The location downtown, just a block from Chinatown, is ideal for easy access to shops, pubs and restaurants. There's plenty of great sightseeing and shopping that can be done on foot from this location. While we rented a car and made use of the building's secure underground parking, a vehicle probably wouldn't have been necessary. A wheeled shopping tote is thoughtfully provided for daily neighborhood marketing or ferrying groceries up from the garage.
Also excellent - the property managers, Rod and Melissa. The whole process from booking, check-in, communication before, during and after the stay was smooth, organized and low stress. We appreciate the personal yet completely professional customer service provided. Certainly we would not hesitate to stay at this or other City Life properties in future and feel confident in recommending them to anyone looking for a great vacation rental experience.
