Rory is a very nice host! Responsible, responsive to inquiries while at the same time very respectful to the guest's privacy. The flat is very clean, tidy, comfortable and nicely furnished. Located within convenient distance from many tourists attractions. I highly recommend this place for the visitors to Victoria!
Staying with Rory is a delight - his home is beautiful, the room is large and airy. I was made to feel very at home but given all the space I wanted.
It is a perfect place to explore Victoria , an easy walk to the central city ( even with luggage ), and there are also bus routes nearby.
I wish I stayed longer at this lovely spot - Rory is a superb host!
Rory's house was perfect. It's in downtown so it takes about 10 min on foot to core part of downtown. My boyfriend and I didn't have to use bus except for Buchart garden. House was really clean and Rory always tried to make us comfortable and help us. We enjoyed Victoria a lot and definitely recommend you to stay here!
Rory was a wonderful host throughout my stay, beginning with contacting me to check my estimated time of arrival, providing breakfast each morning and being on hand to give advice about where to go and what to do.
Rory's home is lovely; very clean and tidy with a really peaceful feel to it. Perfect to unwind after being out and about all day. All this plus a really comfortable mattress/bed, made my stay one that stands out from other airbnb's I've stayed at before. I'll be back for longer next time!
Rory es el anfitrión perfecto.
Nos hizo sentir como en casa desde el primer momento.
Nos dio también algunas recomendaciones para el dia que pasamos en Victoria.
En conjunto la experiencia fue inmejorable. Lo único que lamentamos es haber estado solo un dia.
Couldn't have asked for a better host for our short stay in Victoria. Rory was friendly and welcoming and even had breakfast ready early for us because we had an early start to leave for Vancouver. The room was lovely and the apartment was very central, only about a 10 minute walk from the city centre. A fantastic first Air BnB experience for us - we'd thoroughly recommend Rory as a host to others.
About the Host, Rory
Single professional gay male who is well travelled and knows first hand how tiresome and impersonal hotels can be and so hopes to offer a friendly, safe, comfortable accommodation as an alternative.
I am proud of my home and my city and happy to share them both with visitors. I will provide information and advice on things to see and do in Victoria or, give you the privacy and space you need to manage your own visit..
I enjoy good food, wine, music - mostly classical and jazz - and interesting conversation. I love to laugh and enjoy exchanging a good story.
