Pet friendly downtown apartment!
Very clean, centrally located apartment. It was lovely to be able to stay in a pet friendly accommodation. Great access to downtown and the Galloping Goose. Very walkable!

Excellent location and condo
Fabulous location, Owen, the owner,is super attentive when needed.loved the kitchen . Would definitely return.
Its a great location and great place. All the amenities are as per the description and very accurate. The place is kept very clean and well maintained. You can find all the supplies you need for a comfortable stay. The kitchen is well equipped with all appliances for those who enjoy cooking. The shopping complex across the street is very convenient and the place is just next to the goose trail, and a 15 minute walk to downtown. Owen and Haydee were amazing hosts! I would definitely recommend this place and consider it for the future for myself.
Best place to spend a month in Victoria
My wife and I and our dog arrived in Victoria and needed a place for a month while we searched for a permanent place to live. We have travelled all over the world and rented apartments in many countries, this was the best equipped place we have ever been in. It has every thing you could think of to make your stay pleasant and if for some reason you are missing something Owen&Haydee will go out of their way to get it. Also this unit is a ten minute stroll to downtown Victoria and a short walk to two great trails. Grocery, Starbucks and a post office/pharmacy are 3 minutes away and a local coffee and organic bakery are 2 minutes away. If you need to be in Victoria for any reason this is the place to stay.
