Interaction with Guests
I live in another unit within the same building, so can be easily reached with any inquiries! I'm happy to recommend anything from shops (my specialty) to restaurants (my other specialty), and will be available to help you with anything regarding the unit.
Chinatown is a vibrant community full of the great restaurants, trendy cafes, and unique boutiques that makes Victoria a special place. Everything from the newly constructed Hudson Bay Public Market (a great place to enjoy local foods and vendors) to the historic Fan Tan Alley will be right outside your door. Trust us - there is no better location.
The condo is a half-hour drive away from YYJ airport and ferry terminals, and we are able to provide transport as needed to and from those places. There are also shuttles and buses operating everyday. Please ask us if you have any questions as to how to get around.
No pets allowed, unfortunately. This is also a non-smoking unit. Please behave courteously to this property, as it is a brand new building.
My husband and I spent 10 days at this wonderful condo in Victoria's Chinatown. The condo is bright and is equipped with everything one would want. There is a lovely patio that overlooks a shared garden.
Chinatown, Victoria is the oldest Chinatown in Canada. There are a couple of fruit and vegetable markets nearby, a coffee shops, restaurants in the same block as this condo.
Shelly met us as arranged and all went smoothly.
I would certainly recommend this location if Victoria is your vacation stop.
I loved Shelly's place. She met me and set me up with a key right at the entrance to the building. The location could not be better, I hardly drove at all. All restaurants, yoga studios and sights all within a short walk. I really enjoyed the outdoor area of the suite, also.
Had a great one night stay at Shelly's apartment. The apartment was very clean and neat with a very convenient parking spot. Nice balcony to sit and relax. Pretty good location to walk around to restaurants. We enjoyed staying there and would definitely recommend this place!
Thank you Shelly for the warm welcome when we arrived. Everything was perfect.
Lovely location and condo, and although we never met Shelly in person she provided everything we needed! Would definitely stay here again.
Conveniently located. Clean apartment. Shelly was a very helpful host.
Right from the start Shelly was very accommodating. The description was spot on and the condo was just what we had been looking for. We are hoping that there will open dates for us next year as we have no reservations about coming back again except maybe staying a bit longer LOL. Shelly you might want to have a look at the dining room light and the bulbs that are in it. We did notice that it would flutter when dimmed. Its usually from the wrong type of bulb in it. Other than that see you next year

About the Host, Shelly
Hi! I'm Shelly, a third year Creative Writing student in University of Victoria. I like reading (Murakami, DFW, Zadie Smith, Jonathan Franzen), film (Sofia Coppola, Richard Linklater, Michel Gondry), and my two cats. I also like fake flowers, online shopping, mimosas, and ordering takeout. A lot. I'm mostly fuelled by consumer-related adrenaline and caffeine.
I love to travel, and have been all over North America, Asia, and Europe. Airbnb has been an incredible resource for me, and not only do I think it's great being connected to people all over the world, but like, having an apartment while travelling is an absolute luxury, and now you can get it for cheaper than a hotel room!!!
As a host, I live in the same building, and you can reach me at any time! I'm happy to recommend local restaurants or places you should sightsee. I've lived in Victoria for fifteen years, and I'd like to think I know the city pretty well.
If you decide to go with me as your host, I'm sure I can make your visit to Victoria lil bit nicer. Thanks for stopping by!

A simple coffee joint that locals love. This place really respects coffee - you wont find any mocha-chocolate-chip-frappuchinos here. Instead, honest drinks made by honest folk.Yates Street Victoria BC V8W 3S2
