About Teresa

Hi, we are Teresa and Hunter. We are originally from Edmonton, Alberta. Our family came here for a visit in 2006 and stayed in the downtown area of Victoria. We fell in love with everything about the city and made plans to move here permanently. Just the smell of the fresh ocean air was enough to make us realize that this was where we needed to be. We moved here in 2008 and have never looked back. I am retired from law enforcement. I am now a stay at home mom and raise my 13 year old, who is the youngest of four kids. We spend our time outdoors in the yard and at the beach with our rescue dog. We enjoy meeting the many tourists that come to our beautiful city and learn a great deal from all those we have met in our daily ventures. Victoria is a very friendly city and we have never felt safer then we do here. We live only 15 minutes away from the condo and are available to answer any questions you may have at any time. We look forward to sharing our condo with you and believe you will enjoy your stay as much as we have.

Teresa purchased this condo in 2016

Why Teresa chose Downtown

We have bought and sold lots of property throughout the years and decided we wanted to do short term rentals so that we can interact with visitors more then we did with long term tenants. After searching in many areas of the city, we felt that this location was the very best for people coming to stay. There is everything you need right outside the secure building. We wanted to purchase a home that we believed would provide the safest, and enjoyable stay for all. A home away from home. This is the perfect place.

What makes this condo unique

We are on the 6th floor and face both south and east. Sunlight pours in from many huge floor to ceiling windows and a large balcony. It is most relaxing to be out in the sun on the balcony and enjoy a cold drink before or after your daily adventures in the city. Its great to return to a home that you can finish off your day in the pool (seasonal only) or hot tub (year round) ,or get a little exercise in at the complex gym. Then unwind completely in front of the fireplace while watching your favourite TV shows from the two TVs with dozens of cable channels to please everyone, or relax and catch up on your email from the free high speed internet.

Heart of it all!

  • 5 of 5

Teresa's condo is perfectly situated in the downtown area which makes it possible to walk just about anywhere downtown. The secure parking is a big benefit and makes it possible to have a car for those out of town excursions. The condo is in new condition and very comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked with what one needs. The four of us rested well each evening and also appreciated the availability of a Scrabble game. Teresa was easy to communicate with and immediately responsive for questions. Great place!

Excellent location, beautiful condo, well maintained, comfortable beds, and had the extra added touches in case you forgot your tooth brush, and bottled water in the fridge.

Highly recommended!
