Excellent location away from the tourist crowds
We stayed for two weeks while visiting family in Victoria, and had not stayed in this part of Victoria before. It was very convenient for downtown (a quick 5 minute car ride or 15 minute bike ride) and there are great walks in the area along Victoria Harbour and Selkirk Water/Gorge. Shopping is an easy 5 block walk, and there is a super brew pub down the street (Spinnaker's). The accommodation was clean and comfortable, and the street is quiet - well away from the hordes of tourists who flock to Victoria in the summer! My only complaint is that there is no dishwasher and we had to do our laundry at a laundromat (although I believe we could have used the washer and dryer in the host's home at additional cost). This wasn't the end of the world, but it would have been nice to have these amenities included.
