Loved the condo. Convenience was key for us and it was all about location, location. Very familiar with the area, close to Galloping Goose walking trails and a 10 minute walk to inner harbour. Found owners accommodating, friendly and positive. They even personally returned two pairs of sandals we had left behind. Would definitely do a return stay in the future

I stayed at this rental unit for 13 months while in Victoria for work. The owners are wonderful people and I do not have a single complaint about my stay. Every need I ever had was tended to almost immediately and they even came in once a month to give the place a good thorough cleaning. The unit is absolutely gorgeous and very functional for one person or a quiet couple.
The location is amazing with everything you need (Grocery, Liquor Store, restaurants, clinics, chiropractors, you name it) is no more than 2 blocks away.
I would highly recommend this unit to anyone who may be looking at it!
