Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • There are already a lot of positive reviews and most of them are correct. Great location, enough space, good beds and nice kitchen etc. but two things disappointed us a bit. Most pictures are true to reality, except the outside picture. When you arrive it looks not nice. The siding of the house is in bad shape, the place to sit outside is not nice, not even swept. No flowers, a few signs of the realtor, basically you don't want to sit there to sip wine or drink coffee. The second issue is the kitchen is not really stocked to make a real meal. Yes, the basics are there, but thats all. Maybe we were spoiled by a previous cottage, who had a kitchen where we could make a christmas dinner for a family, they even had eggs, all spices, many teas and all kitchen tools you can imagine. This kitchen didn't even have scissors. Besides those two issues all the positive reviews are true. Janine was a wonderful host and responded very quickly if we had a question or request. ( she would have provided the scissor if we had asked, I'm sure). The bathroom was really nice and updated. I loved the shower-head.
    So, it is a good place to be to explore wonderful Victoria.

  • HOST, Janine, is friendly, charming, helpful and on top of it. Her small one bedroom unit is attractively furnished and comfortable and the location can't be beat. A sweet residential neighborhood one block from Gonzales Beach and about 5 minutes away by car from downtown. Best of all, it is dog friendly, as is a fabulous dog walking beach across the street from Beacon Hill Park.

    It might be helpful to know that there is also an AirB&B right next door (on Richmond) which is a little larger (2 bedroom), has a small and very pretty outdoor space, w/d, and also dog friendly. Someone needing to house a group could rent both spaces. Talk to Janine about this or find it in the listings. (Host Jason).

  • We enjoyed our stay in Victoria so much. Brandon and Janine had a very easy and comprehensive way for us to check in and check out, which was great since we were traveling internationally and wouldn't have been able to call or contact them without wifi. The neighborhood was adorable and the suite was beautifully decorated. They even left recommendations about nearby places to get coffee and a quick route to the water. We walked down to the water and had a blast picnicking and meeting the locals whom were all very nice. Overall, excellent experience.

  • Great neighbourhood with beautiful oceanfront houses . Great host and house as described in the ad. Would highly recommend. We had a short stay there and this place was perfect for our needs.

  • Amazing experience with Janine as our host. She gave us ideas for what to do in Victoria for our honeymoon and listened to our requests even when she was busy with meetings for her real job. We would love to return to this amazing beach cottage just a few miles from downtown, easy bus or bike trip. Bike takes about 12min (we did it 5 days) one way. The private beach (Gonzales) is incredible and only a block away!

  • We loved staying in Brandon's beautiful suite! We didn't get a chance to meet Brandon, but did meet and have good conversation with his wife. She was gracious and welcoming, recommended great things to do on the island even though we were only there for one night, and even went above and beyond when she did our laundry for us in finding out we had been laundry-less for over a week! Also, the location was phenomenal...there was a beautiful beach right down the road and it was only a block from Seaside Drive, which allowed us to bike along the coast. We recommend staying here to anyone who wants to be comfortable, meet wonderful people, and see Victoria from its real and charming neighborhoods.

  • Quick response, ease of check-in, great little space, perfect for our stay.

  • We enjoyed our stay at this cozy little suite. It is just a block or so from the water in a quiet part of town. It's a short drive up the coastal Dallas Road to Beacon Hill Park and the Victoria attractions.
    The bathroom looked like it had been recently updated with new fixtures.
    We liked having a separate bedroom bath from the living room. The TV was a small set but this was not important to us. The Wifi was strong.

  • Lovely neighborhood and location! Comfortable suite, clean and quiet. Would certainly recommend.
