Sid and I loved your place. Excellent space for a day or a month. The space was clean and quiet. The pictures showed the space as it trully is. Nicole and Gilles you were great hosts. You made an all out effort to make sure we had everything we needed. You were available to answer our questions about what to do in the area and the best restaurants to eat in. The area where your house is located was great for walking or driving to the center of town. It was a short walk to the beach. The Saturday market was fanastic and we got some great food and gifts. I bought canned tuna that was caught,dried and packed by the same people who caught the tuna. It was the best can tuna I have eaten yet. Sid and I caught two garage sales and found some real bargins. Sid and I enjoyed shopping on Cook Street. We found two health food stores, a grocery store, a wonderful clothing store and lots of excellent retaurants. Nicole and Gilles, you made our road trip so much easier and so much enjoyable. Sid and I want to thank you. We highly highly recommend this space to anyone who is coming to Vancouver Island. If we return we would love to stay at your space.

We were delighted with our (email hidden). Village Suite. The accommodations were just as pictured--immaculate, comfortable, perfect down to the smallest detail and convenience. Nicole made us feel welcome and "at home". The neighborhood was quiet with lots of very good eateries and every amenity nearby. We would have been happy to stay longer if it had not already been booked.
It was like coming home at Nicole and Gilles place. When you enter the backyard there are three chickens waiting for you to say hello it's really nice. The apartment is under their house and it's beautiful it has a nice set up and enough room. We didn't use the cooking amenities because a lot of nice places to eat are right around the corner. Really enjoyed staying here and I would advice it to everybody. Nicole and Gilles are friendly people and we had a couple of great chats. Thank you for having us!
C'était super ! Nicole et Gilles nous ont accueilli avec beaucoup de gentillesse et ont pris le temps de nous expliquer en détail tout ce que nous devions savoir pour nous sentir "comme à la maison". L'appartement est grand, lumineux, impeccable, aménagé avec goût, convivial et très confortable. Situé dans un quartier résidentiel calme, il n'est pas loin du centre ville de la très british Victoria et en même temps proche de la magnifique route côtière de Oak Bay. Un excellent rapport qualité/prix !
Nos charmants hôtes nous avaient préparé des muffins, fruits et jus de fruit... de quoi nous apporter plein de douceurs pour un séjour encore plus chaleureux, mais trop court malheureusement !
situated in a quiet, friendly neighborhood near the centre of Victoria, where you can spend a lot of time
It was comfortable and clean and surely a nice place to stay
Une bonne adresse pour des voyageurs qui apprécient le calme et qui recherchent une proximité avec la ville. Tout est accessible à pieds si on est un peu marcheur. Le logement est propre, bien équipé, le lit confortable, la douche géniale! !!! Un plus: La possibilité de prendre les repas dans le jardin, au soleil! Gilles est accueillant, prévenant et compréhensif. ..merci encore! Ce fût un bon séjour. ..... trop court.
Great experience. Suite was nice and bright, close to restaurants and in a nice neighbourhood. The orange juice and muffins were a great touch!
