Parking could be tight if you had a full size vehicle. Lovely owner
Great apt. Too loud for us
Too loud outside at night for 4 of the 6 nights. It was mentioned by the owner however I did not realize it was so loud. The parking spot requires a lot of expertise and I personally think it is too small for a full size vehicle. There were a lot of scratches on the concrete columns in most of the spaces. If you hesitate when the vehicle door is up, it shuts too quickly and came down on the roof of our rental vehicle. No damage as there were roof racks
In regard to the noise you refer to, I made enquiries and found there was an incident outside on the street on Thursday night which was very unusual and definitely not the norm. The strata council advises they are checking with the City to ensure this sort of incident doesn’t happen again.
The downtown location encompasses not only the excitement and convenience of being close to all of the wonderful venues/restaurants/music events but also the inevitable noise and bustle of an urban environment. And when asked about the brewpub or noise in general, I give an accurate view and have been thanked for the candid assessment, sometimes suggesting that accommodation away from the downtown core might be more suitable.
When you wrote about your noise sensitivity, I replied (I cut and paste here):
“I am a light sleeper (unfortunately). What floor is the suite located and which direction does it face?”
My reply: “The condo is on the 2nd floor facing north. So whereas it doesn't get the city and bridge noise, it does face Canoe Brewpub. They have live music on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights and though I find that the music is often not even noticeable, sometimes as folks leave the place they can be noisy. Some guests feel that putting the Dyson bladeless fan in front of the door creates white noise, and also this time of the year having the doors and windows closed is a huge help. There are also ear plugs provided. But this is something you definitely need to consider.”
Re the parking spot - I have had large pickup trucks and other oversize vehicles there.
Re the garage door - in the ten years that I have been entering/exiting the garage I have not had a problem, nor have I heard of there being a problem with anyone else. One cannot stop/park half in and half out as then the motion detector thinks the car is out and the door will come down. I have never wanted to test this so have never stopped half in/out! I believe all of these types of doors work the same.
It was very nice meeting you and I enjoyed our interesting conversation. I pride myself on providing all of my guests with an excellent accommodation experience which includes all the little extras, even cream for the coffee. I am happy to accommodate guests’ schedules by providing early or late check-ins and check-outs when possible and I work diligently to ensure that the suite is always in an immaculate condition.
Really liked everything about this place!!
Great place to stay in Victoria
This was our second stay at this property and we enjoyed it as much as our first visit. The condo is located on the Mermaid Wharf with a great restaurant right next door. It is within walking distance of many restaurants and sightseeing destinations. You immediately feel comfortable when you enter the condo. We will stay here again. Recommended!
The apartment was exactly as pictured. Clean and in a great area. It had everything needed for eating in and restaurants close by. Maureen was great to deal with. We will definitely try to stay here when returning to Victoria
Amazing place and host
Maureen was an excellent host. She showed us around the place when we got there and told us all of the ins and outs. Not only was the place exactly as described but it was immaculately clean with all kinds of extras. We will absolutely stay again.
There is an award winning brew pub/restaurant across the street. Kayak and boat rental at the on-site marina. Lots of golf. Many good restaurants of all types closeby. The condo is easy walking distance for concerts and events at Save-on-Foods Memorial Arena.
