This property was everything and more then what the pictures and other comments say. Really nice home away from home and anything you could possibly need this place had it. The owners greeting was very welcoming and walk through of the property was awesome. I would stay here again in this beautiful city.
Gorgeous location, clean suite!
What a great place to stay! I came to Victoria with two of my daughters - one of whom was racing in a big mountain bike race. This suite was the perfect homebase for the end of busy days training and site-seeing. The suite was clean, the owners friendly and the view and setting gorgeous. The owners went over and above providing a bottle of wine, a bowl of fruit, basic kitchen supplies making it easy to whip up a yummy meal, laundry facilities with detergent and a comfortable bed to sleep in. I would highly recommend this location and only regret we couldn't stay longer to explore the island a little more!
Bright with Mountain view
Property is on the side of a mountain with a very steep driveway, however parking is available across the street near the Canada Post mailboxes. Area is very dark at night and with a February - March stay dark is quite early. Lots of deer in the area and you can be startled coming back after dark. Bed is memory foam and as such can cause some people to sweat, not my choice for a bed.
Overall good, very spacious and clean. Hard to find from the street.
They have a bunch of supplies other than the standard stuff, like a hair drier, band-aids, shampoo and soap and such in the bathroom. The water takes forever to heat up and slippers are definitely recommended.
The house is down in a knoll off a very steep hill and is impossible to see/find from the street - it took three passes up and down the street to actually find it, the third pass involved parking the car down the street in a mailbox parking lot (parking on the street is not permitted due to the steep hill) and walking up the hill to verify the address and actual location of the house.
The driveway is a whole issue onto itself, highly recommend that when you enter the driveway that you stop as soon as you get off the road - do not proceed down the driveway.
Located on a steep hill in between two blind corners, the only way to safely enter the driveway (and to initially find the place) is from coming up the hill. The driveway itself is extremely narrow with a steep downhill to the house, an embankment on one side and a sharp drop-off on the other. There are no markers, lights or reflectors, so backing up or down the driveway is extremely treacherous (if not dangerous) especially at night; the risk of sliding/rolling down the embankment is pretty high as you cannot see where you are going and there are no visual aids to guide you. Backing out onto the street is just as treacherous (again, especially at night) because there is no driveway or street lighting; you have no idea or sense of where the street is and you can't see if there is traffic coming up or down the hill because of the two blind corners.
An absolutely great ace to stay!!
The Sunheights Suite is an absolutely great place to stay. Whether it be for a few days, or even longer. Angelika & Rob's attention to detail is unbelievable. Everything you could possibly need for your stay is on hand.
The laundry machines came in handy after a couple days.
The views are awesome and the suite is located no more than 25 minutes from pretty much anywhere.
Fantastic stay while on RRU residency
I decided not to stay in the RRU accommodations on campus as I have some special dietary needs and there are no cooking facilities there. Angelika and Rob's place was only an 8 min drive off campus and a perfect choice.
I arrived to find a welcome card, wine, a fruit bowl and some chocolates waiting for me! The bedding was amazing and I slept beautifully on the queen size bed (when I wasn't pushing for crazy project deadlines until 1am). The amenities were ideal and I had constant entertainment in the morning with deer drifting by my window to graze. Nice little seating area on teh side porch to sit out and relax in fresh air. Pictures show exactly what the suite looks like. It was super clean and the owners were always available if I needed anything. I recommend to anyone doing a residency at RRU and other groups of 2 that need a suite in the area.
Great Location to explore Victoria and Vancouver Island
