Hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

Nick is a wonderful host!

The rental was spotless. It was very well maintained with modern décor.

Although small, there is an amazing amount of storage for the footprint.

The kitchen is a full kitchen. Everything is stocked and equipped to cook full meals.

The bed is big and very comfortable. The basement apartment is very quiet. It gets sleepy time dark at night. My husband, who is a very light sleeper, got much needed rest.

The rental is centrally located to most downtown attractions. Just park and walk.

Rentals are expensive in Victoria. I'm really surprised at the price point the rental was so great! We'll definitely return.

Very clean, modern, secure and well equipped. Location in the city was great.

I would definitely recommend this to anyone. Keep in mind there are stairs which

may deter those that have mobility problems.

New bldg, quiet neighborhood, street parking with provided permit

  • 5 of 5

Nick friendly and helpful. Basement apartment newly decorated and very clean. Well out fitted and comfortable. Pin-drop quiet at night. Walking distance to all downtown attractions. Our car never moved until we checked out. Would stay again and recommend it to friends.

A place that is so much more than the pictures

  • 5 of 5

We were looking forward to staying in the "Green Suite" as our friendly and gracious host Nick calls it because in the pictures the place looked pretty good. We found the suite to be exceptionally clean, comfortable and within walking distance of downtown Victoria and close to major transportation to go further afar. The kitchen was well-stock with some basics though we had not expected anything. The washer, dryer and dish washer were also a welcome surprise. Wi-Fi was always fast and free! We are already planning our next visit to Victoria and the Green Suite. BTW: it's on Green Ave. I almost forgot. The rental price was more than reasonable for what we got. We have only praise and no complaints.

Great place to stay...especially if it's HOT!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in Victoria on one of the hottest days this year...opened the door to this rental and realized we'd made a great choice. Cool and calm. Everything we needed for a great stay. Comfortable bed, fantastic kitchen, linens, towels, dishes, pots and pans, plus a washer and dryer en-suite. You can't ask for much more. Two comfortable chairs to relax in along with speedy wifi (no cable tv), so streaming Netflix or Youtube were not a problem. The only suggestion that we can think of to improve this rental would be a ceiling fan over the bed. Because the suite is in the basement it only had one opening window and that opened onto the stairwell, so we found we didn't open it very much. At night it would be nice to have some air movement provided by a fan. The suite did have a small fan available in the closet but these tend to be noisier than the ceiling type so we didn't use it. Overall a GREAT place to stay and we would definitely recommend this suite to anyone.
