Great stay, warm hospitality

  • 5 of 5

I met my husband in Victoria for a 9 night stay at this wonderful, modern and fully equipped studio apartment. Our host, Mitch, so generously offered to pick up my husband at the Victoria Airport and then swing by the ferry terminal to pick me up and take us to their garden suite - amazing hospitality! The suite is immaculately clean and very light and bright, and the "starter" pantry and refrigerated staples provided were much appreciated. It is possible to walk to downtown (and we did this once), however, the bus stop is conveniently located several blocks away, and the trip to downtown takes only 5 minutes, $2.50/ride or $5 for an all-day pass. The bus service is great ... reliable, frequent schedules, and on time, and we used it frequently to get around. We had a wonderful time here which was made even more special by our warm hosts, Mitch and Judy.
