  • The Patio Suite earns a most definite WOW factor!

    "Fleeing Edmonton to seek an early Spring with blossoms, flowers, trees with leaves, clean fresh air, pleasant walks, the magic of the ocean, and small town amenities, we discovered a gem of a "home away from home" with the Patio Suite! Don and Susan are very attuned to the needs of their guests, providing many kitchen aides and appliances, dinner and table wear, even umbrellas! The luxurious touches such as the bath robes, the thick spa towels, the ever-so-comfortable king sized bed and the wine, flowers and chocolates upon arrival, were most pleasant and appreciated. The generous welcome extended to our family pet was also another reason for us to select this property. The housecleaner is an "Over the Top Professional" with very high standards. Cleaning aids were also available to make daily maintenance easy. Sidney is a friendly, exciting and lovely city to visit, with many side trip possibilities in and around Victoria. It is impossible to get enough beach walks and sight seeing and Susan has narrated many excursions in the "household binder." As we have family living nearby, we were able to invite them to the suite to share lunches, dinners and memorable moments, knowing we would be able to entertain them in a warm, lovely and beautiful atmosphere. We would like to extend our thanks to Don and Susan for facilitating our visit and for providing this perfect sanctuary! It is our pleasure to recommend this property."

  • Great South Chesterman Townhouse!

    "We love staying at Pura Vida at South Chesterman, so much so that we go at least once, if not twice, each year. The townhouse is comfortable, conveniently located and well stocked. One of the main attractions to this specific unit is that you can watch the surf from the comfort of the dining room...never miss a good set again! The townhouse is perfect for a large family or a small group travelling together. The bedrooms are spacious as are the bathrooms and living spaces. I always sleep really well! I highly recommend staying at Pura Vida!"

  • Great Location

    "This was a very comfortable place to stay. The hosts made every effort to ensure a warm welcome. We loved the close proximity to downtown Ganges, and the fact that an awesome, friendly , fabulous bakery was right across the street to get fresh croissants and cinnamon buns for breakfast . We really enjoyed the Saturday market, the art galleries and book stores in Ganges. Hope to make a return trip"

  • Great location for exploring Victoria

    "Stylish studio condo in perfect location for exploring Victoria, just a short block off of Wharf Street which is the border of Downtown Victoria. From it, a 10 minute walk to the heart of downtown, 10 min walk along the waterfront to inner harbor. The property matched the listing description, was clean and well maintained, was across the street from Canoe Brewpub and a few blocks from Swans with countless restaurants all within walking distance. Great view, 180 degrees; very comfy bed. It was cloudy/rainy while we were there, but I imagine you'd get great sunsets. Will add that the correspondence with the owner and representatives was excellent. We were met at the property and given a whole tour, not just given a key. That was a nice touch. And because we came on the clipper and our phones didn't work in Canada, it was especially nice that we were well accommodated by someone who was waiting for us to arrive as we couldn't just call when we arrived. Yes, there is a fair amount of urban noise here ranging from music at the nearby brewpub, festive groups outside, seagulls/trash service in the a.m. etc. so I will admit it isn't the quietest place. It did not bother us. I would highly recommend this rental."
