What's the trick to getting the Apple TV to work?

It can be a bit temperamental, but it's pretty easy once you do it once. Each TV has a main remote and an Apple TV remote. Here are the instructions:

For the main TV: 1. Turn on the TV using the main remote. 2. Make sure the Input is on 'Cable'. 3. Push the round centre button on the Apple TV remote. This turns the unit on. 4. Scroll on the Apple TV menu using the arrow buttons on the silver remote to search Netflix. 5. Push the round centre button the Apple TV remote to select and play the show you want to watch.

For the TV in the bedroom. Same as above except the Input is "No. 6" instead of 'Cable'.

As always, please contact the Homeowner if you have any difficulties.

Comfortable home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was perfect for our family. It was in a quiet neighborhood that had easy access to the beautiful Beacon Hill Park and downtown. Alan and Kursti were very responsive to any questions we had. Would gladly stay there again.

Our stay was very good and we would definitely go back. The 1 bedroom suite was very spacious. It was clean, quiet, nice renovated bathroom with a big shower. It was so nice that we could have our dog with us. Beach and dog park was only 2 blocks away. Great overall

Good location in Cooke St village

  • 4 of 5

The suite was perfect for my needs. It was clean and the property was well maintained. The owners provide everything one needs in the suite. There was some noise from upstairs but not a big concern. The neighbourhood is quintessential Victoria. The location is great with Cooke St. village close by. It's about a 1/2 hour walk to downtown or there is bus service closeby. The ocean and Dallas Road (boardwalk) is only a couple blocks away.

My only complaint is that you are expected to leave the suite as you found it with dishes done, garbage and recycling taken out. I question why the $50. cleaning fee?????
