THANKS FOR LOOKING!
I had a very relaxing and pleasant stay here. The host did meet with me and showed me where everything was located such as laundry and compost/garbage etc. While the suite is small it is well appointed and has a nice combination of new design within an older house. It is perfectly situated for walks to Downtown or Cook Street Village and other sites. There are many cafes and restaurants in the neighborhood as well.
I had the loveliest stay at Mireille's beautiful Carriage House. It exceeded my expectations, their standard of hospitality is exceptional. Everything one could possibly want for in a self-contained suite is provided, it is exceptionally clean and sparkling, modern, fresh, and so tastefully furnished. Cosy, comfortable, and so central to everything. Thank you Mireille for the very positive Airbnb experience.
My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Mireille and Dennis are very personable and helpful hosts. I had originally tried to book another of their properties which was unavailable. Mireille promptly contacted me to let me know that this place was available for our dates. This was a service I really appreciated. This place is perfect for 1 or 2 people who plan to spend most of their time out "on the town" as it is very very small; even after looking at the photos I was surprised at it's compact nature in "real life". It isn't really set up with lounging around in mind. Everything in the unit is tasteful and functional and the bed is very comfortable.
This place is great! It really is just as described, small but very well put together. The kitchen and bathroom are recently re-done and are very nice! We enjoyed cooking together rather than eating out every night and found the kitchen quite adequate for what we used it for. The neighborhood is great and it is only a short walk to downtown. We walked so much while we were in Victoria and found it a great town to explore without a car. Thanks to Mireille for this great space! I highly recommend it!
We stayed at the Carriage house for a month in may/june 2014. We really enjoyed it. The place is nicely decorated and very clean. The neighborghood is quiet and safe. The location is perfect and really in walking distance to almost any attraction in Victoria. Very close to downtown. Mireille and Denis were fantastic hosts, always ready to answer any question we had.
All in all we loved it and would recommend it to anyone who passes through Victoria for a day or for a month.
This place was very cozy and cute. A terrific location. Mireille and Denis were very responsive, attentive and nice. Overall a great place to stay when visiting Victoria.
We enjoyed our stay at the Carriage house. We arrived after dark and it was easy to find. Mireille was easy to communicate with and responded very quickly to emails and message. The place was clean, comfortable, and it was nice to have a little kitchen.
