Reviewer Comments:

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Lotus Waterfront Retreat. The home is amply prepared to accommodate our large group of two families with children. The bedrooms and bathrooms were very comfortable. The large kitchen was perfect for cooking and grilling, and was stocked with every tool or dishwear imaginable. We enjoyed lounging on the oversized patio and watching a seal from the dock. Just taking in the views from the family room was relaxing! The staff at EMR were outstanding in their customer service. We highly recommend working with them and booking this home.

Reviewer Comments:

We were on a girls trip to Victoria and this house was fantastic! The property made it easy for 7 moms to relax and have some fun. There was plenty of room to spread out so we each had our own space as well as some great gathering areas around the house. The home came with everything we could have possibly needed including tons of kitchen tools and spices (and an all important garburator!). We spent just as much time in the outdoor spaces as we did the indoor ones. If you are looking for a property that feels luxurious and offers you all the comforts of home, this is the one. We were even able to walk in and out of downtown from the house. It was definitely a lengthy walk but doable. This home is a must for large groups.

Reviewer Comments:

It is with regret that we review this property very poorly. While EMR staff made efforts to rectify the situation the owners treated this situation very poorly and EMR did little to acknowledge that this was our VACATION! Send a bottle of wine, or a box of chocolates or something to apologize for the mishaps - NOTHING. Our four day vacation was dealing with workers around the house, hot tub repairman coming and going and the doorbell going at 10pm at which our child was woken up by. No regard that this was our vacation. We arrived with no heat in the house. The heating panel board was actually fried. No ones fault - however, given our stay was during the fall when your heat would be on you would think that you would check the house a day or two before to ensure all is working. NO HEAT - it was freezing. EMR brought over two mini heaters, great if it was a 200sq ft apt... not sufficient to heat this house. Fireplaces also did not work, no water in the hot tub despite specifically asking prior to arrival if the hot tub was in working order and being told yes. I also should point out the greeter was fairly useless. Did not know how to operate the heating system, the tv, etc. If you are going to greet guests you should know the property inside and out. This was not the case and a waste of time. Even after being back home and emailing back and forth with EMR - it was quite disappointing to say the least that there was never a note of apology or understanding. I recognize the majority of this was out of anyone's control but an acknowledgement can go a long way. Knowing it was a 70th birthday getaway - send along a card and perhaps a gift card saying sorry AND thanks for your patience. Because PATIENT we certainly were! Sure hope you take some pointers on how to treat guests in the future. PROPERTY DETAILS: kitchen utensils were old and dated, beds not very comfortable and no blinds in the basement for bedroom and bathroom. Not bang for your buck

Reviewer Comments:

While the location and public spaces were wonderful, we were disappointed in some aspects of the house. The house is not well suited for rental by multiple couples. At reservation time we made it clear to the EMR representative that we would be four couples renting the house together. Perhaps she did not know that this house might not be satisfactory for that kind of group. At the time we rented, the VRBO website said there were 5 bedrooms with 4 bathrooms. We were surprised to find that 2 of the bathrooms were actually powder rooms and only one bathroom was attached to a bedroom. We also found the pair of kid's beds in one of the bedrooms to be totally inadequate for adults to sleep in. We ended up having one couple sleeping on couches each night. In general, none of the mattresses were very comfortable and we suggest the owner should strongly consider upgrading them to hotel quality mattresses. The EMR representatives we dealt with were very helpful and we appreciated our interactions with them during the rental period. Check-in and check-out processes were very smooth. They have a good team. Unfortunately, overall we felt we were misled by the VRBO listing and paid hotel type prices for a disappointing and misleading house set-up.
