  • Pristine condo, excellent location, and impeccable service

    "I cannot say enough good things about our experience. From start to finish, we were over the moon impressed with every aspect of our stay. Once you book the condo, you will receive numerous emails about the property, the area, recommendations, and check-in processes. That's a really nice touch because having booked so many places over VRBO/HomeAway, I'm sometimes nervous when I don't immediately hear from the booking service. Arrival information is clear and you're given numerous contacts to insure a smooth check-in. Lawrence was amazing and took the time to get us familiar with the area, recommended restaurants, and great attractions. The condo itself is sparkly clean (I'm almost a germophobe, so this is always a big deal for me). The layout is fantastic, giving everyone lots of space. As a corner unit, the windows are tall and the light is fantastic. Having stayed in so many vacation homes before, I was shocked at how well-stocked this home was. The kitchen is better equipped than my kitchen at home! The parking garage is safe and large. The condo is more beautiful than the pictures can show. As for location, it cannot be beat. Restaurants galore at your doorstep; literally, since there is a delicious restaurant at the base of the building. All of the restaurants, stores, coffee shops, ice cream places, Chinatown, the Harbor, farmers markets -- everything is walking distance. We always look for walking proximity to amenities and this condo more than fits the bill. I do not hesitate to recommend this property and this team! I only wish this team ran the booking for every property I want to book. Thank you for a wonderful stay!"

  • Surpassed our expectations!

    "In so many ways, Serenity By The Sea exceeded our expectations. The location is perfect, walking distance to everything, and water taxis available of a quick trip across the harbor. The condo is perfect. So comfortable and well appointed. We lacked nothing. And the views! Somehow our glasses of wine tasted so much better here! How can you not love a private rooftop patio? We fell in love with Victoria, and I'm sure Serenity By The Sea played a big part. Chidakash and Francis were amazing, making sure everything went so smoothly for us. They didn't miss beat! We highly recommend Serenity By The Sea to anyone visiting Victoria. But please don't take our week! Patty and Jim Scottsdale, AZ"

  • an oasis...

    "Wow. I stumbled across this place relatively late in my planning for a little getaway for my daughters and partner.. it sounded lovely, but really... at this late in the season, why was it available?! We lucked out.. This cottage is lovely. Becci is a gracious host, friendly, helpful and ensuring all was what was expected. We appreciated not only the full kitchen but also her supplying those items that are a pain to pack but don't want to buy a whole new bag of sugar, or tea, or coffee, or spices, or oil.. Freshly made scones were waiting for us, as were fresh flowers from her amazing gardens.. Always friendly and enjoyed talking about her property, the nursery and and answering questions about various plants, we thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Wandering the property in awe, and finding little hidden gems throughout.. sigh.. if only we could stay another night. But.. we will be back. thank you Becci!"
