I could just see Rory on the first day of my trip. However, he was very helpful to give hints about Aces to go in the city and show me everything in the place where I was being hosted. The linen were clean, the towels were fresh and the shower were warm and relaxing for the mild Canadian winter of Victoria. I hope to come back in the summer and enjoy the city better at Rory's place.
What a wonderful experience we had staying with Rory in his immaculate and charming apartment. The photos are exactly what you get...clean, neat, quiet, charming, and everything you need for a comfortable stay in Victoria. The location is convenient to most everything in Victoria and street parking is available which is a bonus.
Rory also had a lovely array of light breakfast options and beverages to jumpstart our day. In addition to all that, Rory was just a delight and we enjoyed the time we had to visit. We will definitely be back when we return to this beautiful city. Thanks, Rory!!
Rory's lovely apartment is in a great area of Victoria, close to the downtown core. We felt very welcomed, had great sleeps (super comfie bed, quiet at night) and appreciated the breakfast fixings provided. The apartment has been beautifully updated and was immaculately clean. If Rory opens up his space for airbnb again in the future we would be sure to stay here next time we are in Victoria. Thanks Rory!
Although I didn't have the pleasure of meeting Rory, my other host Mac was comfortable and accommodating. He made me feel at home immediately - having breakfast offered as well as amazing coffee was a plus. Wonderful/clean...not to mention a great room w/ a bed providing heavenly sleep. As my first airbnb experience, this is certainly the way to travel! Thanks for everything!
Rory and his friend Mack were a friendly hosts and we enjoyed it very very much. A beautiful stay in the center of Seattle. It was very clean and comfortable. We want thanks Rory for the beer and the nice breakfast.
Best regards/Met vriendelijke groeten (dutch),

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..
