With an open-concept space and a prime location, our place will make your stay in Victoria comfortable and convenient. Will comfortably fit two, but can also fit up to four people with a queen bed and a pull out in the living room.
The guest will have an access to the entire apartment.
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.
The apartment is great- just like the photos! Very clean and organized. It was nice to have that large patio to hang out and make plans for the day, especially on warm and sunny days like those when we were there.
The location couldn't have been better. Lots of cool cafes and restaurants around, and a short and pleasant walk to downtown.
Shelly was very responsive and replied to our questions (via IM) really quickly.
Would definitely recommend this place! Just wish it was pet-friendly ;)
Shelly is an excellent host, she was quick to re[ly to emails and very helpful with our arrival. The unit is light and airy and very well equipped. There is a large patio which overlooks a garden and catches the afternoon sun, The location is very good and has easy access to local buses. We were very happy with our stay and would stay there again.
Highly recommended, thanks Shelly for a lovely stay.
Had a great time staying at Shelly's place. It is super-convenient to everything ... short walks to great restaurants, coffee shops, and the harbor. The deck faces south, so lots of warm sun during the day. Thanks, Shelly!
Shelly couldn't meet us, but her representative did. The condo is in a great location, literally steps away from a fantastic cafe and numerous restaurants. I really appreciated having an underground parking spot, too. The condo itself is well furnished: The bedroom isn't spacious, but it's comfortable enough for two. The pullout in the living room is pretty good. The kitchen is well stocked with new appliances. The bathroom isn't big, but it has everything one might need. There is lots of closet space and having the full laundry in suite really makes this place good for travelers. The deck is spacious and would have been nice had it not been so windy during our stay. All in all, a great place to stay in Victoria!
Bel emplacement au coeur du Chinatown et central pour aller un peu partout. L'apt est bien mais nous n'avions pas réalisé que la chambre n'avait de fenêtre extérieure ... un peu étouffant pour dormir. Pas de clim ni de ventilateur pour faire de l'air. Nous avons également eu un soucis au niveau du stationnement au garage. Bien que nous ayons stationné la voiture au bon endroit, elle a été remorquée et quelqu'un d'autre a pris la place. Quelle surprise quand tu sors le matin avec tes valises pour te diriger vers l'aéroport pour prendre ton vol et que ta voiture n'est plus là ! Nous n'avons pas vraiment su pourquoi notre voiture a été remorquée, et n'avions pas le temps de faire cette démarche, mais nous l'avons récupéré moyennant des frais que notre hôte nous a remboursés immédiatement. Alors attention à votre voiture ! Pour l'accueil, Shelley était là quand nous sommes arrivés et quand nous sommes partis. Elle est très sympathique.
Shelly and the apartment were great - exactly as advertised and pictured. This one bedroom apartment is new, clean and in a great location. It is in Chinatown, only steps from everything one needs - stores, great restaurants, sightseeing and, for me, the requisite, wonderful coffee shop just outside the door to the building. Will definitely stay again in future visits.

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!
Great, local food prepared by fine dining chefs. We recommend that you make reservations, but the food here is always amazing and fresh, and the service is fantastic.Fisgard Street Victoria BC V8W
Don Mee is a great place to visit for morning dim sum, and is popular among locals and visitors alike.Fisgard St Victoria BC V8W
A breakfast place where you can really indulge. From red velvet pancakes to a curry-seasoned salad, this local joint is great for all ages and all kinds. Also makes amazing ceasars!Herald Street Victoria BC V8W 1S5
Amazing French cuisine and crafted drinks, can be casual or fine dining. Menu changes daily so check the website before heading in!Government Street Victoria BC V8W 1Z4
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
