We absolutely loved our stay here! Rory was very welcoming, friendly and had very good advise on what to do and where to go. The apartment was very beautiful and clean and had everything we needed, from cooking facilities to wifi. I honestly cannot suggest anything to improve, it was perfect just the way it was! Thank you for being a great host!
Rory was an awesome host and his place was so amazing it made me want to buy a nice vintage apartment like it! He was super hospitable, with refreshments ready for us even though we had an unavoidable hold up and showed up late for our check in. He was super friendly, gave us some great tips on what to do around Victoria. His taste is impeccable and you will see that when you stay at this beautiful apartment!
Rory was an excellent host. He was very helpful and generous. He let us check in early, shared food and drinks, and offered great advice on getting around and what to do. He was friendly and easy to get along with. The space was great, very close to downtown, but on a very quiet street. The bedroom was large and the bed was very comfortable. A great place to stay!
This was my first experience with Airbnb and it will be hard to beat! The accommodations were perfect and the host extremely gracious. Rory provided a clean, comfortable and welcoming home. He truly thought of everything and even provided us with breakfast each morning. The location is great, just a short walk to Cook Street Village or all the action downtown. I would highly recommend staying here while in Victoria!
Rory was very welcoming and friendly. He was a great host and he provided breakfast every morning.
The room is close to downtown but still a quiet, tidy, clean and comfy place to come home to in the evening.
It was a good experience!
PERFECT AIR BNB (and now we even know what the "air" in airbnb is all about)!
My boyfriend and I arrived very late and although Rory was asleep, the place was set up perfectly (our way in simple), lights on, clean towels, tidy room.
The room description is spot on. Everything is clean (anti-bacterial clean), well-lit, and in the perfect location near downtown Victoria. In the mornings, multiple breakfast options were out and ready with a handwritten note greeting us. Eventually, we met our incredibly personable host Rory, who proceeded to make us freshly brewed coffee and immediately making us feel like part of his family.
Throughout our stay, Rory was incredibly friendly and was always available with great advice (perfect dinner place and place for drinks afterwards).
Overall, we could not have asked for a better host, room, and location in Victoria and it was truly a pleasure to get to know Rory during our stay! We cannot wait to visit again in the future.
Rory is a super kind and warm person.
Room is clean and cozy,and I love the breakfast.
I'll rate more than 5 stars if I can!
