The neighbourhood is beautiful, within walking distance to downtown, quiet and gently tucked away from major traffic arteries, close to transit. Marianne's is a very lovely and welcoming apartment and she is the sweetest host.
We had a great stay at Marianne and Olive's place.
We enjoyed staying in the charming residential area of Fernwood, with the city just 15/20 minute walk away. Though quite small, the suite was well equipped and spacious enough for two people for a few days. The suite was private, quiet and clean.
We appreciated Marianne's flexibility with our arrival time and would definitely stay again/recommend.
Our hosts made us feel quite welcome to the neighbourhood with excellent suggestions for groceries, restaurants, and entertainment. Close to public transit stops, great specialty shops, and not a far walk from downtown. As we were in the second half of our two week trip, the high efficient laundry was a welcome sight. Love the tiny library on the front lawn! Great kitchen, we made use of the oven to heat up some locally sourced croissants. I could easily imagine myself spending a lot more time at this location, for business trips into Victoria. Or to finish writing a novel or a personal retreat where I needed to get away from my current walk of life. Extremely happy with our stay!
We had a lovely time in this little hideaway. It's a short walk to downtown and everything you need. Lovely, friendly and helpful hosts. The place is in lovely condition and really comfortable! We would highly recommend this for anyone staying in victoria!!
Met all our needs . Good Location . Quiet neighborhood . The suite was very clean and had everything we need. Marianne helped with your tips . Recommended . The tomatoes were very good . Thank you .
Der Aufenthalt in Mariannes and Olives Appartement war super. Die Bilder des Appartments sowie die Beschreibungen zu Lage etc. passen perfekt und waren für uns als Fußgänger perfekt zur Erkundung von Victoria.
Marianne and Olive haben uns sehr nett empfangen und auf unsere Fragen viele Antworten und Tipps für die Umgebung gefunden: auf Mariannes Empfehlung haben wir auf einer Wanderung einen wunderbaren Strand entdeckt. Wir sind den beiden sehr dankbar für ihre Gastfreundschaft, Herzlichkeit und Gespächigkeit und können jedem Besucher von Victoria nur empfehlen bei Marianne und Olive Gast zu werden.
Great place, about a 20-30 minute walk to downtown. Only a block away from a grocery store and a fantastic Greek restaurant. Cute place, perfect for 2. Full kitchen, and cute outside patio area. Hosted by a great mother daughter duo!
Hello! Olive and I love living in our beautiful house in Victoria's sweetest neighbourhood, Fernwood. We share a passion of making our living spaces cozy and fun - this includes our sweet suite. We look forward to sharing this amazing fresh, green part of the world with you. Enjoy the clucking hens in the back yard, and the charming village of Fernwood just a block away.
