The hosts made my arrival very easy with a place to store my luggage in th case of arrival prior to check in time. They let me know when I could check in early and I especially appreciated this. The suite is bright and clean and the perfect size for one or two people. The bathroom reno is beautiful. Marianne was helpful and answered any questions I had. I would definitely stay here again.
Great little suite, it had everything we needed. Quiet neighborhood with great stores and cafes around. Marianne made everything so easy for us with directions laid out and great recommendations for food and shops!
The "sweet suite" is exactly as the picture presents it! I stayed there on my own for three nights, and it was quiet, clean and cosy. The bed is very comfortable and there is a wonderful shower and lovely locally made soap. There is a good supply of books of all kinds, including many cookbooks! The suite is well supplied with all of the pots, pans and utensils you could need for cooking. There are herbs outside the door that guests are welcome to use. Marianne and Olive were both lovely - very easy and casual. They left tomatoes from their garden twice, which were delicious and made me feel very welcome. I felt very safe staying on my own. I was out a lot, but I knew that they were there if I needed anything at all. The check-in and out was easy and convenient, parking was very handy and nearby. The neighbourhood is in an older part of Victoria, with many character homes and close to the Belfry Theatre and some excellent coffee shops, bakeries and restaurants. It is about a 20 minute walk to downtown. I enjoyed my stay at Marianne and Olive's place very much. This was my first AIRBNB experience and it was a very favourable one. I would highly recommend this little suite to anyone who would like to stay in Victoria, near downtown, at a very reasonable cost!
Eine großartige Unterkunft in Victoria!!! Das Haus ist wunderschön, das Zimmer ist in einem seperaten Bereich mit eigenem Eingang, eigener Küche und eigenem Bad. Alles war sehr sauber und liebevoll eingerichtet. Wir haben uns super wohl gefühlt, nicht zuletzt, weil Marianne eine super nette und hilfsbereite Gastgeberin ist. Wir durften uns sogar von ihren Tomaten und Gurken im Garten bedienen. Wir würden die Unterkunft auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen und jederzeit wiederkommen!
One of our best AirBnB experiences! Perfect location in town, great space, and incredible host! I wouldn't look anywhere else in Victoria!
We had a great stay at a very charming studio in beautiful Victoria. Marianne was very kind and helpful and the studio had everything we needed. The neighborhood has nice places for food and drink and is just a walk to downtown.
Marianne was a happy and very friendly host. She greeted us with a smile and a friendly welcome. Her place looked exactly like the pictures and the neighborhood was cozy too. We truly enjoyed our short stay and would definitely recommend Marianne's Sweet Studio to friends and family. Thank you very much!
