Reviewed 17 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Very comfortable apartment. Everything in good working order. LOVED sitting on the bay in the evening after a day of touring. Perfect location for day trips. Hosts are really kind and hospitable. Knowledgeable about local tips, very helpful. Gardens are a tiny version of Butchart, lovely. One thing to note, very steep steps up to the apartment over garage.

Management response:

Sorry you were bothered by the stairs. I describe in the listing very clearly that it is a second floor apartment. Thanks for staying with us, Barb and Bruce

This place is a true gem. So quiet and serene. Far from the hustle and bustle but only a $25.00 cab fare from city centre. The hostess is truly welcoming and helpful and the water which includes beautiful white swans and a multitude of Canada geese couldn't be better. The garden is lovely. Spent a day whale watching, eating fish and chips at fishermans wharf, visited fan tan alley and all the other touristy things. The casino is close by if that s your thing and there is a beauty school close where you can get massages, beauty treatments and general pampering at low rates. The apartment is top notch with everything you need. Clean and comfortable. This is a great choice for a solo traveler or a couple. The only negative is a long stairway up to the apartment which was difficult to climb with a heavy bag but the host has offered to carry it down for me.

About the neighbourhood
Victoria & surrounding area is gorgeous! It enjoys incredible natural beauty with huge trees, mountain backdrop and sparkling ocean vistas.
The city of Victoria is a world class tourist destination and offers our visitors tons to do and see. It is a sophisticated little city which offers a huge number of fabulous restaurants & eateries, great shopping, theatre, music, gorgeous scenery, whale watching, charter fishing, year round golf at any of dozens of courses.

Victoria is a year round tourist destination because our weather is the best in Canada, with mild winters (hardly every snows) and seldom do temperatures go below 0 Celsius. Therefore this region is a favourite for those wanting to escape Winter in other areas. Spring, Summer and Autumn are spectacular.
