Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment turned out to be quite a gem. It had everything you could ask for. The beds were comfortable. The living area was roomy. The kitchen had everything we needed. The deck was awesome. The weather was great during our visit so we got much use out of the deck.

As for the location of the apartment, it was absolutely perfectly situated in the middle of all our interests. Everything we wanted to do was within walking distance (the bus to Butchart Gardens was a short walk). It made it easy for us to explore the area to find the best shops and restaurants, of which there are plenty to choose from.

Rod and Melissa were very helpful. Rod showed us around the facility, and told us were to get groceries and other nearby things to do. We knew if we had any issues (we did not) they would be there for us.

In summary, a beautiful location in a beautiful city. We will definitely be back!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very much as shown and described. Very comfortable and clean, centrally situated so perfect for tourists in Victoria wanting to visit the main attractions, shop, and eat out. The best feature of this place is the terrace. It is huge for the location and faces east south and west faces so it is great all day. The apartment is well equipped but a dining table on the terrace would be a nice addition. Rod and Melissa were very professional and provided exemplary assistance in all steps involved.

Outstanding experience!

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy with the rental and highly recommend it. The apartment felt like a home-away-from-home. It is beautifully decorated with comfortable furniture and pillows and even a throw blanket. The television is af high quality and easy to use, which was important for watching championship basketball! The patio is wonderful with a chaise and other seating options. A real bonus to the experience. While the apartment is on the first floor, the side of the building where the apartment is has a "lower" floor so once in the apartment one is not on the first floor, meaning that a stranger cannot look in at you in the apartment or on the patio. There is total privacy. The apartment is also way off the lobby so we heard absolutely no lobby noise. The kitchen is perfectly equipped with pots, pans, spices, knives, plates etc so we were able to cook some delicious meals and heat up left-overs. There's a washer/dryer and two bathrooms with showers. A parking space if you have a car. The location is perfection! One block from the Empress Hotel and a few blocks from the Inner Harbour. We felt so lucky to be staying there. Melissa was so friendly and helpful during the process and during check-in. We recommend a million percent.

Just like the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

We took the airport shuttle from the airport and it let us off 1/2 block from the Astoria. Melissa met us and took us to the condo, helped set up the WIFI and showed us the apartment amenities. The unit was perfect for the three of us, right on the ground level from Fairfield Road. The walk to the inner harbour is quite easy. We shopped at the Market on Yates which can be walked to, although we took a taxi. A car really is not necessary, we took the water taxi to Fisherman's Wharf (great fun), could walk to the BC museum/IMAX, caught the bus up Douglas to the shopping centre, took a city bus tour from the Empress, which we could see from our terrace, and could have taken a bus to Buchart Gardens from the Empress as well. Melissa had put milk and bread in the fridge as well as fresh fruit on the counter for us, which was a totally unexpected pleasure. We would certainly entertain the thought of returning to the Astoria in the future, we were delighted with the professionalism of Melissa and Rod in all aspects of planning the trip. We wish them well in their business.

Warm and Inviting

  • 5 of 5

Our personal choices for a getaway are great beds (which they were) and a well equipped kitchen (which it was). The whole week was fun for my sister and brother-in-law who walked all around the area enjoying the gardens, well kept homes and then returning to the comfort of The Astoria where I fed them from the beautiful kitchen. I enjoyed my small walks from the unit to the waterfront, museum, and bus trips around the beautiful Victoria area. We would go back in a minute to stay at the Astoria. Melissa is the best greeter we have met and explained the unit amenities, the Victoria. Area, and Rod was friendly and efficient when there was a light bulb issue. We appreciated the fruit selection when we arrived. Melissa thinks of everything. Well worth the time we were there.

Clean, well appointed and fantastic location, this condo unit was perfect for our stay. We could walk to good restaurants and bars and the harbour is only 2 blocks away.

It is always nice to go into a rental that has been so obviously been cared for. If you want to explore Victoria, this unit is a gem.

This is arguably, the best location in downtown Victoria, BC.

It is close to tourism activities, the Victoria Inner Harbour, shopping, dining and entertainment.

Also, just a 5 minute walk away, is Beacon Hill Park a 75 hectare oasis in the city where you can enjoy nature, a childrens petting zoo, miniature golf course, cricket pitch and duck ponds.

In another direction, just 2.5 blocks is Victoria's world famous Inner Harbour where you can watch the marine traffic or hop on board a Harbour Ferry, for a trip around Victoria's waterfront.

Just across the street from the Astoria Building is Clives Classic Bar, voted one of the top 10 cocktail bars in the world.

There are so many restaurants and coffee shops in the area it is almost impossible to list them all.

Victoria's Public Library is just 3 blocks away and the Royal Theatre is also just 3 blocks from your residence.

So many more places to go and things to do, the best way to do it all is to come and stay for a while.

Cancellation Policy
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.

Manager's Cancellation Policy

Please ask the manager or check their rental agreement when booking the property.
