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!
Really nice place. Clean, comfy, and cute location. Would definitely like to stay next time we come to Victoria.
Marianne's studio is a wonderful quiet, comfortable, and cute place to stay. You can't beat the neighborhood either!
I'd like to say thank you to Marianne for letting me stay in her splendid little suite. It was spotlessly clean and perfect for me. The suite is in a perfect location for anybody wanting to explore Victoria and its surroundings.
We had a wonderful experience! We were so glad to have made the decision to stay in a quiet residential area away from the touristy hubbub. The Fernwood neighborhood is full of art and creative energy. Great little cafes are just a block or two away. Everything in Victoria is easy to get to by bus or some by foot from this location.
Marianne's sweet apartment made our stay in Victoria perfect and we enjoyed every minute! It is big enough for two people, has everything you need and a lot of space to put your own stuff, but it is also small enough to create a very cozy atmosphere right in the heart of Victoria. The area around the apartment also offers everything from grocery stores to coffee shops and with a 20 minutes walk you are already in Chinatown. Thank you so much for the fresh eggs in the morning and all the information you gave us. We felt at home right from the start! Cheers, Ulla and Anna
Marianne and Olive's sweet suite was great! We stayed for four nights and had an amazing stay. Marianne was welcoming and made us feel at home. Everything from when we first arrived, to all the great food and event recommendations, to the day we left was just perfect. The sweet suite was clean and had everything we could have asked for. We felt at home and would definitely stay again. It was close to everything and easily accessible by foot and transit, which was great for us.
