“Nicely stocked and comfortable!”
We really enjoyed our 10 days in Fernanda's unit! It was very thoughtfully equipped with everything we could need and more! The beds and linens were wonderful! We would definitely stay again! Thanks Fernanda!!
Response from the owner Thank you for choosing to stay here and taking the time to share your experience. Likewise, we would enjoy having your family stay here again. Good luck with your renovations - I hope it will not bee too long before you enjoy the improvements- I know renos require a lot of patience!
“Fabulous Accommodation for Large Family”
I cannot say enough positive things about this suite. Travelling with a large family with young kids and teens, both the house and the garden were perfect for us. The attention to detail was superb and the hosts were excellent. We will definitely be back!! The Flynns, Dublin Ireland
“Looking forward to coming back!”
We stayed at Torquay Drive with our two kids (13, 9) and thoroughly enjoyed it! This place is excellent for a family vacation. The apartment is not only fully furnished with lots of taste and sense for detail, it has EVERYTHING a fully equipped household needs. We felt extremely comfortable and settled in from Day 1. Stephen added to it by supporting us swiftly and unobtrusively, whenever we had a request. The neighbourhood is really calm and quiet, the kids could walk and bike on their own to sports facilities (recreation Center) and parks available conveniently nearby. The nearest beach is 15 minutes walking distance and Mount Doug within sight. A car is definitely helpful, although busroutes pass by a few blocks away. Mount Doug market which is the closest supermarket, can be reached within 15 minutes walking, as are some small shops in the local plaza Apart from our pleasant experience living in the Apartment, we thoroughly enjoyed the Patio, where we BBQed quite often and had friends over for meals. The patio is delightful and quiet; you also get a chance to see the hummingbirds coming by in substantial numbers. It is secluded and offers nice privacy. We love Victoria and hope to come back soon - and we will definitely stay in Torquay Drive (availability provided)!
“great home away from home”
My family of 5 (kids aged 10, 12, 14) stayed here for a few days while visiting my brother in Victoria and it was wonderful. We had plenty of space and made great use of the kitchen and laundry facilities. Everything was was exceptionally clean and modern, and the beds were all very comfortable, including the added cot for our 3rd child.
“A Home from home”
Fernanda, Stephen, thank you for the opportunity to stay in your outstanding home. As a family we have recently emigrated to Canada and required a long let to enable us time to research, view and purchase a property. Choosing a place to rent is a big step in itself because if you make the wrong choice you inevitably end up moving again. Research can be daunting and after a lengthy search settled on Fernanda's property in Torquay Drive for a four month stay. My wife and daughters (18 &13) arrived first on the 7th of January, tired, jetlagged and full of apprehension for what awaited them. Their fears were unwarranted as the email I received the following day explained in great detail how palatial and clean the two bedroom apartment was. My son (20) and I arrived a few weeks later and as my wife never tired of telling me, it was indeed immaculate. The two bedrooms, two bath, two kitchen served us very well as the dining/sitting room houses a folding double bed and when visitors arrived (yes we got those) Stephen kindly provided a folding bed which fitted comfortably in the spare kitchen. Torquay Drive suited our purpose very well; it is ideally located in Gordon Head giving easy access to the main arterial routes and in our case potential areas to settle. It is a very private and peaceful location which was a blessing after hectic days house hunting. There is easy access to bus routes which was ideal with two children job hunting. The property is stocked with everything you could possibly need, it is indeed a home from home. We could not have asked for a better place to stay during what is a very stressful undertaking and we were actually sorry to leave. Thanks again Fernanda and Stephen you have an outstanding home and I cannot recommend it highly enough. Kind regards, Bill & Mary
“I would stay there again”
Property was great, really clean and completely well organized. Was super happy with the set-up and the basics being available in the kitchen, and being able to serve dinners in stylish serving trays and on nice dishes! Convenient location, friendly location and perfect backyard for bbq dinners. Note from owner was sweet and informative, with wifi password and offer to help if needed. Would definitely stay here again if visiting Victoria..
“Loved it here...would definitely come back !!”
My husband, adult son and I stayed in the suite on 4458 Torquay for 10 days, and would highly recommend it ! The suite is situated in a mature, quiet neighbourhood, only a few blocks away from Mt. Doug where you can hike through the natural forest and up to the peak where you can lookout over the area. We had rented a car, so had no problem getting to and from the suite...there is a bus stop not far from the suite, not sure how long it would take to get downtown Victoria though. There are no grocery stores, or restaurants within easy walking distance that I saw, so having a car definitely was an advantage...the reason I only gave 4/5 for location. The suite has just been redone, so everything is brand new, with quality furnishings and is tastefully decorated, and spotlessly clean. The kitchen is large, well equipped, and well lit. There are plenty of linens, which are all high quality too, and a washer and dryer in a closet so you can do laundry if you want. The washer, dryer and dishwasher are all quiet, so you can run them while you are watching TV or visiting with no problems. Fernanda sent pictures of the suite once it was finished...I don't think they are shown here on this listing, but they are exactly as the suite looks. The patio is wonderful to sit out on and have a glass of wine, or cup of coffee...sitting either in the sun or shade, as both are available. The flowers and trees give the yard a real homey feel, the yard fenced for privacy and to keep the little kids inside :) Booking is very easy as Fernanda is quick to reply to emails, and will call to discuss your stay if you prefer. Payment was made through PayPal, which is always nice and easy, reassuring too somewhat when you are making the booking from hundreds of miles away. Fernanda will send a contract to be filled out and returned. Rest assured, you will not be disappointed ! I will definitely stay here again, if not booked :), when I return to Victoria.
“What a gem for our family of six!”
Our family of six found this incredible place last Summer and we cannot say enough good things about it! First of, the owners are extremely helpful from the first email to while we were staying. But the nice thing also is that the place is completely private too. We are certain that we could not have found a more suitable place for our large family - the location was perfectly convenient and easy to get to anywhere with all the amenities we needed nearby, the way this place was designed is awesome as it pretty much has two separate units connected by the hallway/laundry room. We were impressed by the quality of everything from furnishings to the dishes, appliances, bedsheets, everything is amazing! We have stayed in many vacation rentals as it is much easier to be self contained but we never experience this quality and for a very reasonable rate. My wife was very happy to cook in this wonderful kitchen with better stuff than we have at home! The owners really thought of everything and it showed that they really care - the place did not have a speck of dust and everything was very tidy and uncluttered. The beds were very comfortable and the sheets felt like a five star hotel. We noticed that unlike many places we have stayed at, the stuff put into this was did not look like a mix of hand me downs - everything was new and tasteful throughout. We all loved the backyard too - had many family meals and everyone was happy. Will definitely and stay there again when we return to Victoria someday! Thank you so much for creating such awesome place for our family vacation!
