Interaction with Guests
We're happy to provide our guests with as much or as little interaction as they wish. We welcome questions about the suite and amenities, and will offer any help they need in getting to know the neighbourhood and city.
Fairfield is one of the oldest neighbourhoods in Victoria and our home is in what used to be known as the Fairfield Farm Estates. It's friendly and very walkable. Only a five minute walk takes you to the Cook Street Village where you'll find shops, restaurants, and a few small grocery stores. A few blocks further down Cook Street and you'll be at the entrance to Beacon Hill Park and Dallas Road, on the waterfront. We frequently walk downtown for shopping or restaurants, only 15 minutes to the centre of town.
We're just one block to Cook Street and Fairfield Street, which are both major bus routes.
We use a common sense approach to 'house rules'...generally, people like things to be fairly quiet by 11pm. A mutual respect works for us, and if you're unsure about anything - please ask us!
We were pleased to find the listing just as described - new, bright, clean and well equipped. Linda is very pleasant and unobtrusive. This is a lovely, snug apartment in a quiet neighborhood within walking distance of downtown, Dallas Road, Beacon Hill Park, Government House, Fort Street shops and just around the corner from Cook Street Village. We fell in love with Victoria and our little home away from home.
We met Linda several months before we stayed in her condo when we rented an AirBnB two-bedroom suite from an different owner on the top floor of the same building.
She was very friendly and through her we learned that she was listing her one-bedroom suite through AirBnB. It was the perfect place for us for the period from Christmas 2014 to the end of January 2015. We knew we wouldn't have any guests visiting during the winter months.
The suite is beautifully decorated and had everything we needed for a most comfortable stay. It's often cloudy and raining a little during the winter in Victoria but when the sun poked out its head, the sunlight streamed into the apartment through a large window on the southern wall in the living room.
Linda lives above the suite, but we barely heard a sound from upstairs and she said she didn't hear any noise when we were moving about or watching TV. That's a great thing when you a living in close quarters with your neighbours.
The apartment is situated in one of the most beautiful and accessible neighbourhoods in Victoria, so we rarely used our car. There is a small patio at the front of the suite and it would be a great place to watch the sunsets in the summer months.
We had a wonderful time at Linda's home. Linda met us on arrival and showed us everything we needed to know. The suite was impeccably clean and was set up for an easy and comfortable stay. (The full kitchen and laundry are so nice to have!) Great location -- an easy walk to downtown, the ocean, Beacon Hill Park and some nice cafes and restaurants. Thanks for a lovely time in Victoria.
For me this place was perfect. It is a very nice apartment, very well gfurnished and very conveniently located.
One needs very specific indications when arriving at night.
Linda replied to my booking request immediately with a friendly email containing information about the guest apartment and how we would meet with her to get the keys. This was very helpful because even though I was already familiar with Victoria this was my first time making a reservation through airbnb. The apartment was absolutely perfect - a lovely updated 1 bedroom with a living room, fully equipped kitchen, spacious bathroom and even a washer/dryer. It is on the lower level of a beautifully remodeled heritage house on a quiet street, within walking distance of the Cook St. village area with shops and restaurants nearby. We actually did not have to bother Linda very much because everything we needed was already provided! We have visited Victoria many times and this was by far the nicest and most affordable place we have stayed.
Loved staying at your condo. It's very welcoming and comfortable. The kitchen is very well equipped. We felt at home. The area is gorgeous and walking distance to the beach and downtown. I hope to be back.
We had a great time in Victoria. Your place was spotless and very well equiped. We had a wonderful time at our Granddaughters wedding and most of the guests from Ontario were within walking distance, which was great. We ate at Buddy's twice and enjoyed it. We also had a 4 generation breakfast at Rosie's on Sunday morning. How wonderful Sure hope to return to Victoria in the near future. Sorry we did not get to meet you, however maybe next time

Welcome! I've lived and worked in the Victoria area for most of my life, and love everything about it...especially the beauty of each season, and the walkability to shorelines, parks, restaurants and downtown. From my travels far and wide, I have a good idea of what people want when they are staying in a city for the first time, returning for business or visiting family. The great thing about this apartment is that it has the best of both worlds...it's on a quiet street and just a quick walk to downtown or any number of close destinations in the city.
The Developer and designer have done an outstanding job of converting this heritage home into four unique apartments, with quality finishings and features. Inside, we've supplied everything you need to be comfortable and self-sufficient. As an artist and fan of good eats, I can recommend galleries, restaurants, and many other Victoria favourites.
