Lovely apartment within walking distance of many things.
The owner was wonderful about responding to emails and texts quickly, whether before our trip or while we were there. She was very helpful. If we had a problem, she was right on it. The apartment was decorated nicely, and the bed was quite comfortable. Not being city dwellers, we had a hard time sleeping the first few nights due to the noises (we stayed 8 nights), but we found ear plugs helped fix that, and we slept well the rest of our time there. We had a gated parking spot below the building, which we appreciated. The owner provided coffee and tea, as well as shampoo and conditioner. We were able to do laundry right in the unit, which was an added convenience. We appreciated the helpful books in the apartment with local suggestions. We are big walkers, so we walked daily from the apartment to many places, from Chinatown to Victoria Harbour to the Royal BC Museum. There is a nice market just a block away where we went for groceries, and a liquor store another block away (liquor is not sold at the markets in BC). Many restaurants and pubs are within walking distance. We will definitely be staying in one of this owner's units on our next visit to Victoria. She was a pleasure to do business with!
