  • We had a great time getting to know Linda. Her home was comfortable and she was very friendly and easy to talk with.

  • We loved staying in Linda and Andy's home. Andy was away so we didn't get to meet him but Linda is a really lovely host, very warm, welcoming and generous. We felt completely at home staying here and would happily have stayed longer. We also loved the district of Fernwood, very neighbourly and funky.

  • This is our first experience with airbnb and it was excellent! Linda was super hospitable and her home is cute, quaint, and in a nice neighborhood. We took the ferry into Victoria and rode our bikes to her house. It was a few kilometers but a very nice ride thru the pretty neighborhood. The room and bathroom were large and clean and she provided yogurt, berries, eggs, toast, and a few other little things for us to prepare and eat in the morning at our leisure. The bed was soft and cozy and her garden is very nice to sit around in, in the evening and has a hammock. Would recommend!

  • We had a great time staying with Linda. The house and garden were beautiful and we really felt at home. The Neighbourhood is great and a convenient drive to Dowtown. Linda had everything ready for us and even took me for a bike ride around the block to her favourite bagel place. We'll definitely be looking to stay here when we're in Victoria next.

  • Such amazing hosts! Andy and Linda really went above and beyond to make my stay feel like home, from freshly baked cookies to helping me catch a bus. And their dog Taco is just the sweetest! Also, the bed I slept on may have been made of clouds.
    The location is great, a leisurely 15 minute walk from almost everything, and the neighbourhood has great historic houses. Just amazing!

  • Linda and Andy were great hosts and we enjoyed our talks with them. The room and the bed were comfortable. The area is great for walking and dining.

    September 2013
  • This was our very 1st airbnb so we weren't sure what to expect when you are welcomed into someone's home as total strangers - it was a great experience. Linda & Andy are warm welcoming hosts who make you feel at home from the outset. Great bed so good night's sleep but if you don't want to wake up at the 1st crack of light bring along an eyemask; there's a skylight over the bed. Linda was most helpful directing us to restaurants within a few short blocks, fabulous local food & wine was had at "(email hidden). We knew we had had a good time with Linda & Andy when it seemed as we left, the visit had been too short.
