Christine is the reason we purchased this unit. She grew up in Victoria and has family here. So owning property in Victoria is a natural fit. Being well located downtown, in a luxury building, adds another dimension. So, being where you want to be, with great amenities, in a superior location, is really all that one could ask for.

So come join us, when you can find the time.

Great introduction to HomeAway for Girlfriends' getaway

  • 5 of 5

I brought with me 3 friends to stay in the hub of Victoria's Down Town Inner Harbour location. 2 friends have never stayed outside of a hotel and discovered what a joy it is to have space and amenities that broaden one's visiting experience. Although we really only used the condo for breakfast and snacks for eating - it offered such a great location to try some terrific eateries so close. From Rebar (a vegetarian restaurant), to Bard's and Bankers (a pub full of quaint nooks and corners for visiting), to Pagliacci's (an unbelievable Italian restaurant - walk in only). Truly a great location to so many wonderful finds. Looking to for an inspirational Knitting and Needle craft store, book stores or boutique shopping -- it is all there! Thank you Howells and to Diane for making us feel welcome.

Owner's Response: Kathy Thanks for taking time to submit your review. Much appreciated. Vancouver Island Concierge Services keeps the suite at a 5 star service, so I take it that your comments suggests it is time for a repaint of the suite. We concur. Therefore, we have scheduled a full re-painting of the suite for January 5-14, 2018. Regards, David Howell

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, myself and our son stayed in this condo for 4 nights. It was fantastic! Everything was perfect...beautiful and well appointed condo. We have stayed in many VRBO properties and this was by far our favourite. The kitchen had everything you could possible need and there is plenty of room for dining and entertaining. The beds were very comfortable. Our booking and check in and out were very smooth. We will definitely be back.

Wonderful condo right in the heart of Victoria

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with my parents during the Thanksgiving weekend for the Victoria marathon. Wonderful location a few minutes walk from everything! Lovely condo is spacious and very well appointed and both bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms, which is great for couples sharing. We enjoyed having breakfast and lunch together in the condo and exploring Victoria's tasty dining scene in the evening. Wonderful bike riding up the Galloping Goose and Lochside trails, and hiking in East Sooke park. Murals on the Ogden Point breakwater are worth a look too! We'd love to come back next year, and highly recommend a stay here.

True Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

This suite provided all the true comforts of home right in the hub of Victoria's finest downtown area. Diane provided a tour of the suite and building ensuring we were comfortable before she left, which made the transition seamless and easy to get settled and begin enjoying our stay. The beds were cozy and comfortable. The kitchen was fully equipped with easy to use appliances. Following a day full of sightseeing on a sea taxi, enjoying the market, browsing unique shops and taking in the local fare, relaxing with a glass of wine by the fireplace perfected the day. We loved this secure suite and location and look forward to returning and staying here again. Thank-you for this comfort and the warm hospitable environment.
