The listing description was accurate and exactly what we expected and needed for our business trip. The hosts allowed us our privacy and adhered to their own quiet hours policy etc.. The neighborhood was pleasant and a 30 minute walk to downtown Victoria; there were several restaurants and other establishments even closer reducing the need to go into downtown.
What a cozy place! Close to everything- grocery store, downtown, china town etc. The house was clean and two bedrooms had great beds. It was a pleasure meeting Ryan who showed us the place and recommended few attractions in Victoria. We had a great time. Thank you
We were in Victoria for an Ironman event and it was great to have a home base to relax before and after the race. The kitchen had everything we need and the mattresses were super comfortable. It is the basement of their home and you can occasionally hear them walking upstairs, but the night before the race, they made it a point to keep it to a minimum, even though I wasn’t able to sleep much because of pre-race jitters anyways.
It's a great location, located in a cul-de-sac with plenty of parking. We drove downtown but it's definitely walkable. I met Ryan and Jonah and they were both extremely friendly. We left one of our phone chargers when we left and they even reached out to me to ship it back. Great Hosts!
Great location near all the main attractions of Victoria. The space was easy to access and very clean. It is a basement apartment, so there is a little upstairs noise and the ceilings are low. However, a great value for the quality and location. Melissa was easy to get in touch with as needed. I recommend staying here if you're visiting Victoria!
