Well located, close to downtown and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

The Condo apartment was very close to downtown and within easy walking distance of the Victoria Clipper terminal.

The apartment was well set-up and comfortable. Two very good restaurants (Fishhook and Be Love) were a short walk away.

Excellent Location and great little condo !!

  • 4 of 5

We were met by David at the condo and were given a brief tour of the condo, and we were on our way. We were granted an early check in as the unit as it had been cleaned and it was much appreciated as we had luggage with us and there is no secure storage unless you get into the unit.

It is within walking distance of everything major to the downtown Victoria. Located behind the Marriott, next to the Hilton and across from the Chateau Victoria, we were close to many restaurants and dining locations. Bus service was very close. Condo was just as pictured. It is a bachelor style condo but for the 2 of us it was just perfect. David was kind enough to supply coffee, tea and half and half creamer, although we just couldn't figure out the french press. Not his fault, but a plain coffee maker would have suited us better. Appliances were all functioning and we were able to get a supply of water and some munchies from the local 7-11 about 1.5 blocks away. Washer and dryer was handy as we did have to do a small load of laundry due to some sloppy eating on hubby's part. There is no air-conditioning but with the windows open you get a nice enough draft in there.

There really is only is one con and that is the bed. Although the mattress is comfortable enough, the bed itself is quite low to the ground (6"-8" off the ground) and being a senior couple, we found it difficult although humorous trying to get in and out of the bed that low. If you are a long legged or slightly over weight, it could be an issue. We kind of fell into it and rolled out of it -- making for some interesting videos.

Building is very secure as is the condo -- with access to only a specific floor. We would definitely stay again and would recommend this unit when visiting the downtown Victoria area.

Well kept, great location. Great for the price.

  • 4 of 5

Overall, this was a fantastic place. The location is tough to beat, and the bed and living room We're very comfortable. Laundry in unit was a huge plus, and so was the little deck. The building has good security, with floor-specific elevator access and a locked front access door. The only reason this didn't get 5 stars: there is a bus corridor right outside, and that can get noisey, although all the hotels in the area have the same noise. The place can get stuffy during the day, but as soon as it's opened up and the fan (in the closet) starts running it cools right off. Honestly, it probably deserves 4.5 stars, I just can't rate it that way here!

Very happy with our stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this condo 2 nights while we were in Victoria. David was very helpful and great to work with. The place was very clean and had everything we needed. It was in a fantastic location! We brought our dog, so it was great to be right around the corner from the park, and yet a block away from downtown. There was a lot of different great places to eat. Also the balcony was really nice to just sit on and watch the traffic and people walking by - just enjoying the city. We had a great time and I strongly recommend this condo to stay!
