I would highly recommend anyone to stay with Anne at her establishment. I was welcomed with enthusiasm and was provided a warm and personable introduction to the property, neighbourhood and city. As a first timer to Victoria the location was ideal. Morning runs along the ocean and easy access to all the downtown has to offer without the need for a car. Anne was a gracious host with the offer to provide any assistance requested but not intrusive at all. The suite was exactly as it was advertise and more than met the expectation of the visit. I hope to return to Victoria and be another of the return visitors to the Character Suites.
Ann made us feel most welcome and the neighbourhood was within walking distance of anywhere we went, downtown, Beacon Hill Park and Abkhasi Gardens. Lovely walk. The experience exceeded our expectations.
Wonderful experience at this place.. Ann and Michael were very hospitable. They even let me use their private garage to safely store a bicycle when I was not using it. Great location as well, making it easier to access all the important places.. Thanks again Ann & Michael!
Ann was very welcoming, and the comfortable room was a wonderful place to stay during my time in Victoria. I loved the balcony overlooking the street and the in-room coffee maker! I felt comfortable coming and going as I pleased - it's an easy walk to downtown, and I had fun being so close to Beacon Hill Park. I would definitely stay here again.
I spent a week in Ann's beautiful home in Victoria. The space was just as described and pictured - spacious, with all the appliances you need for a nice breakfast. It was a very comfortable place to return home to after a long day. Ann and her son were great hosts, very friendly! A lot of choices were provided for breakfast, and they were delicious.
I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone. The location is great for exploring Victoria, and the room is big, bright, and comfortable.
This was our second stay with Ann at her beautiful home. We enjoy staying here because it feels like home. The room was very clean and well stocked with tea, coffee, fresh fruit, fresh bakery items, cold cereal etc. Ann and Michael even had a carton of Almond Milk in the fridge for me, a special request. We like the location of the home because it is in a beautiful neighborhood full of character homes, and close enough to downtown that we mostly walked to where we were going. The few times that we did decide to take a cab, it cost less than $10 CAN (each way) to get to restaurants and shopping. Keep in mind, there is no phone in the room so I do recommend either planning on using your own cell phone or make as many arrangements ahead of time as you can so the use of a phone isn't necessary.
Having stayed at Ann's previously, I knew it would be perfect to book for for a friend coming to Victoria after a long trip. Luckily it was available, and my friend loved it. Ann provides everything you need for breakfast in your suite, so you don't have to worry about a thing. Thanks Ann!
