Interaction with Guests
We try to meet our guests personally when they check in, and we are typically available by phone or email for the duration of our guests' stay should they have any questions about the property or the neighbourhood.
If we happen to be out of town when our guests arrive we always make sure there is someone to meet them and to be in touch during their stay.
We are located in Oaklands neighbourhood (walk score of 70) on a quiet family friendly street within walking distance to groceries, coffee shops, weekend summer market, parks, Camosun College, restaurants and shops (including Hillside Mall currently undergoing an $80 million dollar reno). We're only a short bus ride/bike ride/drive to University of Victoria and downtown. Our neighbourhood is very community oriented and there a wide variety of neighbourhood events.
Extremely convenient to major bus routes (transit score of 82) including bus 22 Vic General/Hillside Mall, bus 28 Majestic/Downtown and bus 27 Gordon Head/Downtown
Noise level should be kept to a reasonable level at all hours,
Please do not park in front of the house directly across from us because the woman who lives there is a blind senior and the handy dart must be able to access her home.
We stayed in Jenny's and Jesals place for four month and we had an awesome time there! We were three students studying at UVic and we had everything we needed and more to make us feel comfortable. Jenny and Jesal have been exceptional hosts. The apartment is very cozy and super clean. The two bedrooms are spacious and the closets leave enough space to store things. The sleep couch in the living room was perfect for people visiting us. The furniture is very modern and the fireplace makes the living room even cozier. You find everything you need in the kitchen. The bathroom is also big enough for three or more people. We were also allowed to use the nice patio in the front garden.
We would definitely recommend staying with Jenny and Jesal.
We fell totally in love with our condo and the city.
Jesal and Jenny, thank you so much for the great time!
Jesal and Jenny were great! They were only there for the first night when we arrived before leaving on their own trip and were busy packing, but Jesal came out to greet us with his adorable kids and gave us some great suggestions for things to do in Victoria.
The house was great and we had it all to ourselves (nobody was in the second guest room when we were there). Clean and homey with plenty of space. The only downside I would say is that you do have to take a bus to get to downtown and a series of buses to get to the ferry terminal and airport. However, the place is really close to the bus stop, so it wasn't any more than a minor detail.
My wife, our son and I stayed in this 2 bedroom self-contained unit for a total period of 5 days. The hosts live just behind this unit in a house. Both Jenny and Jesal were most helpful in giving us information about the unit which met our needs very well. The unit was well appointed and super clean. The house is a short bus ride from downtown Victoria making it very convenient to move around by public transport. Public transportation is great in Victoria and we managed without renting a car. The location is very convenient to shopping and dining with a Target, a shopping mall and a grocery store just a 5 minute walk. Could not have asked for a better place to stay in Victoria. I'd recommend this place to anybody wanting to stay in the Victoria area.
My wife, 13 year old son and I stayed here for 3 days and have to say that everything was first class. The hosts couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. The accommodation is in a very quiet residential area - 2 bocks from the bus stop to take you down town (around 15 mins drive) and 4 blocks from a shopping centre. The accommodation itself was superb - large living / dining area with a well equipped kitchen, 2 good size bedrooms and a very nice bathroom (excellent shower). Everything was pristine and very clean. At all time their was excellent email communication with Jenny. All in all 5 star and highly recommended!! Many thanks Jenny & Jesal.
We just spend the last week in Victoria and found the suite at Jenny and Jesal's to be ideal for our purposes. It accommodated our party of 4 (mom, dad, 2 teenage daughters) and provided enough space for us all. The kitchen was well equipped; all appliances were in good condition and the entire space was tidy and clean. Lots of room for us to unpack our bags and settle in for the week. We definitely utilized the WiFi and appreciated the superb mattresses on the beds. Probably as good as our own mattress at home. We didn't spend a huge amount of time in the suite during the day, but it was a great place to come back to in the late afternoon. There was never an issue with parking out front. Lots of space. Front door access to the suite was handy. The neighbourhood is quiet and it is within a 7 minute walk to Hillside Mall and a short drive to the grocery store. We would definitely stay here again. Loved this vacation.
We loved the house. It was clean and beautiful. Jesal is very welcoming and friendly.
