Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Cary's place was fantastic! He was very communicative in setting up the reservation, and met us promptly to give us the keys and show us the house when we arrived. Very friendly guy.

    The house itself is beautiful--we were wow'ed by the pictures, but in person it's even better. Everything is clean and spacious--perfect for 2 couples. Fast WiFi and cable television were a plus; after exploring Victoria, it was nice to just come back and relax. The house is conveniently situated near a number of grocery stores, restaurants, and shopping places, so that was nice as well.

    Victoria itself is beautiful, so I highly recommend staying at Cary's place and enjoying it yourself!

  • We generally enjoyed our stay in the Victoria area and specifically at this house. It was a nice and somewhat unique space. As usual, we had to adapt to the house for the week and get accustomed to some peculiar Canadian issues as US citizens. Cary was helpful in getting us settled in and at communicating with us before our arrival. For future US guests, make certain that you know that your cell phones and bank cards may not work. Canadian cards use chips rather than magnetic strips and not all businesses will take US cards. Our cell phones didn't work there and there is no landline phone service in the house. We had to purchase a basic phone and service which was an added expense.

    Response from Cary:

    If you have a pre-paid U.S. cellphone, there may be restrictions on making calls outside of the U.S. Since joining AirBnB as a host, I've had guests from Austin TX, Santa Rosa CA, Eugene OR, Seattle, Chicago and Philadelphia. All of these guests had cell phones that worked in Victoria. None of them mentioned problems with their bank cards.

  • This place is truly a gem... central location, quiet and close to the Swan Lake Nature Reserve. The sun room is absolutely fantastic, adding another beautiful hangout area in an already spacious and bright home. To top it all off, the host Cary is a delight to be near. He was incredibly accommodating and responsive to our needs. His warmth and sincerity made for easy communication - he's all around a solid guy.

  • I had a wonderful time at Cary's place. He was great at communicating with me leading up to the trip and greeted me upon my arrival to give me the keys and quick tour. The master bed was super comfy and had French doors out to a private terrace area which was a perfect place to read and enjoy a cup of coffee. The space is so bright and airy, I brought some canvases and paints and found the sun room area to be a very comfortable and inspiring space for my little studio set up.
    I highly recommend Cary's place to anyone and hope to stay there again!

  • My first time using Airbnb and I am very pleased with it! Cary was a fabulous host who ensured we had everything we could possibly want.
    No letdown from the pictures! The place was cozy and inviting.
    Definitely felt like a home away from home!

  • Cary was wonderful and this house was amazing! Very clean and spacious! Cary even had a few essentials for us in the fridge! Our puppy was well exercised with the enclosed back yard and neighboring dog park! We would love to stay here again when in Victoria!
