This new, well-appointed 2 bedroom suite is walking distance to downtown Victoria, the Inner Harbor, and Fernwood Village. Also a lovely stroll to Oak bay village, Cook Street Village, Beacon Hill park and the Beach. Restaurants, coffee shops, Craigdarroch castle, Government House, Belfry theater, movie theaters, and many other attractions are within walking distance.

The space

The suite, boasting 960 square feet (90 square meters) of comfortable west coast living with two bedrooms, is located on the upper floor of a completely renovated, 120 year old character home (rebuild completed in the fall of 2015).
Featuring a large, open concept living/dining/kitchen space, gas fireplace, all new stainless steel appliances, gas range, Brazilian granite counter-tops with under-mount sinks, all custom built cabinetry and two bedrooms with very comfortable queen size beds. There is also a comfortable queen size futon for additional accommodation. A crib is available on request.
Large windows turn all rooms into bright and sunny living spaces.
To complete the picture there is a 95sqft (9sqmt) covered balcony (complete with gas grill) overlooking the lovely gardens in the backyard, with a view to downtown Victoria and the inner harbor. This is a perfect spot to sit and enjoy your morning coffee and paper or a lazy afternoon of reading.
The bright, kitchen is well stocked with everything to keep the cooks among you happy. A perfect place to prepare all the fresh local meats and produce available from the local markets or the "catch of the day" from Fisherman's Wharf.
Wireless internet, laundry, off street parking, and an ideal location for those wanting to be close to all amenities, completes the picture.
Not only a great vacation spot but a comfortable temporary home for those on the road. Perfect for longer stays and entertaining.

We loved staying at Jim's place in beautiful Victoria! It was exactly as described, and very clean, welcoming, and quiet.

Jim was a super host! He stays in the house next door and you would park in the left most empty lot, directly in front of porch. Surprisingly, we had no idea he was next to us with his two dogs. There was no sound leakage. It does get bright in one of the rooms. Wasn't a big deal for me, but if you like sleeping in, probably need a eye mask. Clean, close (via cab), probably would've been a 20-30 minute walk to get to the heart of downtown.

The condominium has been better than expected. The pictures might not show it but it has been recently renovated and you will find everything you need for a relaxed stay. But the best part has been the host, Jim, who has been wonderful like providing bread and fruits for the breakfast. He made sure that everything was perfect for our stay. The location is about 10min walking distance from grocery stores/coffee places and 20-30min to downtown. The only thing is that it is quite bright on the mornings in the bedrooms but we had sleeping masks that helped.

Jim was a wonderful host, quick to respond and very welcoming. We have two little ones (3yrs, and 7 months) and Jim ensured the place was child friendly and safe. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We definitely will be back!

No hesitation in giving 5/5. Really nice space that is clean, well organized, nicely laid out. We cooked a couple meals and the kitchen/bbq has everything you need in terms of dishes, utensils, cleaning equipment etc. The knives are sharp and everything is high quality- would be happy to cook here again. Comfortable beds including the futon in the living area. I hope to bring my family back here again!

Fantastic host, very accommodating and the communication was absolutely fantastic. The suit was clean and contained absolutely everything that you would need to have a comfortable stay. Given it's location, the noise from the road can be heard and may bother some people. That is a trade off with choosing a place with easy access to public transport and close enough to walk to shops and restaurants. Not a bad thing but just something to be aware of. We enjoyed our stay.

Response from Jim:
Thanks Grant for reviewing your stay with us. There is indeed a bit of street noise during rush hour when people are traveling to and from work, but quiets down in the evenings. Thanks for taking care of the suite and leaving it in great condition. Hope to see you on a future visit to Victoria! happy travels ... jim
