About Mike and Arne Killins

My husband Mike and I came to Victoria in 1994 and fell in love with the city, the ocean and the mountains. Victoria is filled with tourists in the summer and snowbirds in the winter, a perfect

scenario for a vacation rental place. Now we meet people from all over the world, what can be more interesting.

Mike and Arne Killins purchased this apartment in 1997

Why Mike and Arne Killins chose James Bay

Our customers tell us we are in a perfect location. A quiet street, two houses off the ocean and the ocean walkway and just ten minutes walk to dowtown. Half a block away is a corner store and bus station and one block away you'll find a shopping plaza with a supermarket, drug store, liquor store, Starbucks, walk-in clinic , restaurants and so much more.

What makes this apartment unique

The suites have all the conveniences of home and are spotless. You have your own entrance and privacy, but if you need help we are there to make sure you have all you need.Property Address:19 Menzies Street,Victoria BC, Canada

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Menzies Manor commands a great location: right beside the ocean, near Beacon Hill Park, a few blocks from the James Bay community with Thrifty's, liquor store, coffee shops and restaurants, and for those who like to walk - walking distance to the Inner Harbour and downtown Victoria.

Our unit had everything we needed and was exceptionally clean. Mike, the owner, is always available. This is our go-to place when visiting Victoria.

Great Location, Clean and Pleasantly Appointed

  • 5 of 5

Called basically last minute and Mike was very accommodating and met us at the apartment with very short notice. The unit is very well kept, the furniture and decorations are very clean and nice, and that king size bed was so comfortable!!

The ocean is literally about a minute walk away.

Thanks, looking forward to our next trip.

Great place to stay! Everything you need is there for you and it is very clean. We enjoy the theme rooms. The owners are there for you at anytime. You are only steps from the ocean and downtown. Highly recommended.
