Located right next to the Fairmont Empress, you are located in the hustle & bustle of downtown Victoria. Located next to bus routes and downtown Victoria ferry terminal.
You can't get any more downtown than this location. Two blocks away from the inner harbour and surrounding cafes and restaurants - this is a great neighbourhood.
  • Annie and Dave really make your stay in Victoria a luxury. The location of the condo cannot be beat, right in the heart of downtown, close to all the fun stuff to see, pubs, wharf, and delicious places to eat. The room itself is wonderful! It was incredibly clean, and well equipped for a fun night. They offer millions of DVDs to watch on their big tv or projector screen! We truly enjoyed our stay here, and for the price it's quite a steal. The view is also absolutely stunning.

  • My husband and I had a wonderful time in this condo. It had beautiful views, the interior was stylish, clean and new. It was comfortable and had everything you could need or ask for. We were walking distance to everything!! There were also lots of great restaurants and shops nearby. It was the perfect location to spend our holiday!

    Aleksandra2014-10-18T00:00:00Z
  • Anni was terrific - she answered every email promptly and provided outstanding instructions for accessing the condo. The space was perfectly located, well appointed and sparkling clean. We loved our stay!

    Rona2015-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • The condo was beautiful, immaculate, and in a great location close to downtown and the clipper. We walked everywhere and had a wonderful stay. We would absolutely stay there again.

    Lara2015-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I stayed in this lovely condo for our honeymoon and it could not have been more perfect! The condo was beautiful and comfortable, and perfectly located to explore all the sights and really take in Victoria! This was our first AirBNB experience but it won't be our last!

    Amanda2015-10-19T00:00:00Z
  • Clean, comfortable, and conveniently located. Since we had lived in Victoria in the past, we chose this location to spend an entire week knowing it was within walking distance to all the best restaurants, parks, transit hubs, and tourist hot spots. I have high standards when it comes to a clean home, and Danielle and James clearly do too. We settled in quickly and easily- it was that comfortable and contained everything we needed upon arrival. Plus Danielle and James were easy to get ahold, friendly to deal with, and provided a great info package. We're so grateful to you both for creating this wonderful, quiet space in one of the world's most beautiful cities!

    Alyssa2015-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • This was the perfect place for our Christmas stay on the Island. The central location and beautiful condo made for a wonderful home away from home. Danielle was responsive and helpful in the lead up to the stay and the condo is as appears in the listing. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place and will likely stay here again on my next trip.

    Louise2015-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Renting this condo was a wonderful airbnb experience. Located on a view-worthy, higher floor of a very well-maintained building, I enjoyed being easy walking to distance the best of downtown Victoria, including the inner harbour (3 min.), Royal BC Museum (10 min.), Robert Bateman Centre (10 min.), incredible selection of shops and cafes (1 to 10 min.), sea kayaking group at the Flying Otter Grill dock (5 min.), and Moksha Yoga studio (15 min.). The hosts (who emailed excellent instructions to access the condo) could not have been more accommodating, and were available by email or phone if questions occurred. The unit itself was immaculate and well-appointed, including a chef-style gas range and spa-lover's deep soaking tub. The queen-sized bed was very comfortable. I enjoyed the bright views of the downtown from all windows (with the ease of privacy binds at night) and waking up to the sounds of the seagulls and warmth of the morning sun. Extra perks included a bbq on the unit's deck, and a small but well-stocked convenience store on the building's lower level. I would definitely recommend this beautiful condo to others.

  • We had such a pleasant experience with Stephanie and Rene. They were easy to contact and quick to respond. They gave us excellent recommendations, information, and directions throughout our stay. They're such a sweet and warm couple- we felt very welcome! The space was clean and very comfortable. They baked delicious goodies and had a well stocked little kitchen that brought extra comfort to our stay. We would highly recommend them!

    Madeleine2016-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Stephanie and Rene are very nice and helpful people. We enjoyed it a lot to stay in their cozy garden house. As welcome they have prepared muffins, fruits and some things for enjoying breakfast. This was just great.

    Andrea2017-08-16T00:00:00Z
  • Stephanie and Rene are great hosts and so accommodating. I was held up and couldn't make my 3 pm time and Rene agreed to my request of meeting at 5 pm. The garden is beautiful and the views of the garden from inside the cottage was breathtaking! It was great to wake up to birds singing and squirrels running along the fence. Beautifuls walks to Oak Bay Village and the ocean that were very close. A definite place to return to!

    Pat2017-05-10T00:00:00Z
  • You will not be disappointed! Stephanie and Rene are the ultimate hosts, and their cottage is lovely. Location is close to the ocean, and walking is wonderful.

    gwen2017-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • This was a lovely, quiet place to stay the night. The garden that surrounds the private house was beautiful. The home was very comfortable, and perfect for a couple. Our hosts were great, provided some great information, and muffins for the morning. A little out of the city, but close to the water and some beautiful views. We also found some great pubs near by. I would definitely recommend this rental for a relaxing getaway!

    Elyse2017-05-27T00:00:00Z
  • the place very clean, had all amenities we wanted, quite street, good location to Victoria Golf and CC. Also Oak Street has many shops, grocery, pubs. Could not have been better...

    carl2017-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • What a great spot. This cabin is nestled in a beautiful garden in a lovely neighbourhood. Such a quite spot with all the amenities you'll need. I look forward to another stay here.

    Jaime2017-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • Great location. It is close to downtown but far enough away to be in your own little quiet neighborhood. It's just a short walk to the beach. Clean little room with everything you need. We stayed for a week and loved it.

    Charles2017-07-21T00:00:00Z
  • This place is the best ever in my airbnb. Awesome view, room, bed, washroom and kitchen. Everything is clean and beautiful. The only inconvenience is that there is no hair dryer. I spent a gorgeous night in the house! Thanks.

    Jiyen2017-10-10T00:00:00Z

  • This place is amazing. You can walk straight down onto the best beach in Victoria and wake up to spectacular views every morning. Yesterday I saw a bald eagle sitting in a tree outside! The home is gorgeous and comfortable. Best bathtub EVER too. Thanks Nancy and Rasool!

    E2017-03-31T00:00:00Z
  • Great Gonzales Bay location to be able to watch Otters playing in the water whilst having breakfast is just wonderful, that and flying over to the island on Harbour Air Float planes has just been epic, thanks for sharing the view !

    Duncan2017-07-01T00:00:00Z
  • This place had Amazing views of the bay and beach front access. It was close to all the sights we wanted to see and was very clean and modern. Would definitely come back!

    A large room in a character home with full bathroom. Only a 10-15 minute walk to downtown, close to bus routes, grocery and convenience stores, fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, king size bed, WiFi, it will feel like home away from home. 1908 character home with rock wall and front yard garden. It's a shared living space with your own private area in a great neighbourhood. The bedroom has a desk to use your computer at, your own private bathroom, and beautiful garden to sit in if you wish. The suite is a large private bedroom with full ensuite (attached and private) bathroom with fresh linens and towels included. You will be sleeping on a comfortable king bed and have lots of closet space for clothes. We like to cook so the kitchen is fully equipped including spices, coffee and tea and there is space for you in the fridge and pantry to store food. The house is very well set up for composting and recycling. WiFi is available of course. There are 6 steps to travel to enter the suite. We are easily accessible by email or phone / text. Either myself or my dad will be able to meet you and introduce the suite. Fernwood is a great neighbourhood, fun to walk around and enjoy the calm and beauty. There's a square with shops, wine bar, eateries and a theatre only 5 minutes walk. For places to check out and things to do, we have collected a bazillion brochures to cover off all sorts of interests from cycling to whale watching and more. Downtown starts with only a 15min walk if you aren't driving. Lots of eaterys and pubs in the downtown core. One of the best websites for food is ch(URL HIDDEN) which lists daily specials for lots of restaurants including happy hour specials. We love giving our opinions about food too (we work in the industry) so please don't be shy asking questions on where to go. =) There are a couple of bus stops ($2.50/trip) near the home but downtown is only a short walk. If you are driving, there's usually parking in front of the house. There are 2 short haired chihuahuas (Bruno and Ella) living in the same general space. They are well behaved and quiet. Respectful tenants live below and another AirBnB suite is above us.
  • Krisztina is a nice cheerful and chatty lady and very informative about the area etc. The massive bed was very comfy and it was good to have a bathroom with a tub. It is so close to the town centre so no problem getting around.

    Shirlie2017-07-18T00:00:00Z
  • Christopher & Krisztina were very friendly & welcoming. They know a lot about the area & restaurants, which was useful. The home is clean, comfortable, & just as described. I appreciated the hospitality. I would recommend!

    Annie2016-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Christopher and Krisztina are very friendly hosts and well communicated. House is very clean and in a convenient location. We will defiantly stay there again when we visit the area.

  • Super accommodation and hosts, convenient, exactly what I wanted!

    Norma2016-12-03T00:00:00Z
  • Chris greeted us when we first arrived. He showed us our accommodations and the kitchen area. He told us where we could store our food and he showed us how to use the coffee maker. Chris basically said that our part of the house was ours to use. The house was in a nice neighborhood and it was convenient to downtown Victoria. The room was sunny and bright.

    Richard2015-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • THE BEST HOSTS EVER. They are a lovely family that makes you feel just like in home. The room is very beautiful and clean. The house has many plants and Ella and Bruno (adorable pets) will make your stay even happier that could be. :)

    1quinze52016-05-03T00:00:00Z
  • Christopher and Krisztina's Place was awesome. Located in a really unique little neighbourhood and easily within walking distance to downtown. The house was extremely clean and our room was perfect. Although we just had a private room it felt like we had the whole place! And I'm not kidding when I say that bed was like sleeping on a cloud. Checking in was a breeze and they were quick to respond to any questions we had. I would highly recommend this gem!

  • We had a great stay at Jason's place. The pictures are very accurate - it is large and lovely. The location is excellent, the beach is at the end of the road. This would be a great place for cyclists to stay!

    Lorna2016-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Jason was easy to communicate with and responded quickly to any questions we had. The house and neighborhood was amazing. We felt right at home. The house had everything we needed for our weeks stay. We cooked several meals while we were there and did not lack for anything. We loved the location , walking distance to the park and beach. We would definitely stay there again. Thank you Jason.

    Diana2016-06-09T00:00:00Z
  • We had such a wonderful weekend staying at Jason's gorgeous house in Gonzalez Bay! The house looks exactly like it did in the pictures and the 6 of us were very comfortable our whole stay. We loved being close enough to walk to Gonzalez Bay as well, but also just a quick drive downtown. Most importantly, however, was Jason himself. We had about a zillion questions leading up to the trip and he answered quickly each time and was extremely helpful. He also gave us several restaurant/bar recommendations that we tried out that were top notch. We would absolutely stay here again.

    Alyssa2016-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • The most beautiful place we've stayed during any vacation we've had, the pictures don't do the beauty of the house justice! It was fully equipped with cooking essentials and home necessities, we didn't even want to leave the house to explore Victoria! Jason was the kindest, most accommodating host. He is also prompt and helpful with directions. An amazing experience staying here, will definitely request to stay here again when we visit.

    Hannah2015-10-03T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you Jason for providing a wonderful atmosphere for our family. The open and family style concept was a perfect for our large group. It was truly a home away from home with all our needs being met. Bedrooms were spacious and private and clean. Definitely would recommend this home and plan on returning.

    vivian2015-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • Jason's place was exactly as described in the listing. He has a lovely home. The house is extremely clean, and had close street parking for our 2 vehicles. Jason was a pleasure to deal with and promptly replied to any inquiries I sent his way. Thank you Jason for the wonderful stay!

    Patricia2016-08-28T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely beautiful house in a lovely location. Jason was easy to communicate with, always available and friendly. Everything was as expected and better.

    Kathy2016-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at the home with our family to celebrate our grand daughter's graduation from Uvic - It was the perfect spot - we were able to walk to pick up our groceries and was great to have the BBQ for our dinner.

  • Deb's place was comfortable, clean, and beautiful. The place had everything we needed and more. I would definitely stay here again.

    Tyler2016-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • My family and I had a great stay in Deb's suite. Very clean, cozy, and manageable for 3. The perfect location and Deb was an excellent host.

    Kendra2015-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • Deb was very welcoming and flexible (we only knew that same morning at what time we would arrive and it was no problem). She gave us all the info we needed and even provided us with a hand drawn map. The place was amazing! We felt at home immediately and I wish we could have stayed longer! Downtown is really close, we went on foot so we didn't have to pay for parking.

    Rebekka2015-06-24T00:00:00Z
  • Deb was a pleasure to deal with - easy communication and very helpful and friendly. The flat is beautiful, clean and in a great location - just a 10 minutes cycle to downtown and 20 minute cycle to UVIC. The bed was amazingly comfortable and I loved the little garden just outside the door. Deb made some wonderful suggestions on things to do in Victoria - thanks!!!

    Merrill2015-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • Summary: Accommodating and welcoming hosts, comfortable place, great neighborhood, sweet deal. I'd definitely stay here next time I come back to Victoria as it's in a great walking/running neighborhood (I had my dog Ebby) and really cozy. Details: On very short notice (like a few hours notice due to another Airbnb host canceling, arg) Deb and family set me and my four-footed companion Eb up with what I would call an attached a mother-in-law unit with private yard fenced in yard and entrance. Everything was recently updated, so very comfortable with all the basic amenities you could want. Note: As shown in the photos, the bedroom is off the bathroom, which worked fine for me, but good to be aware of if you are staying there with friends. Also, the bathroom sink is a bit small, but for short term use it was fine. Internet was quick and lounging in the living room / kitchen area with a private yard outside the windows was almost too comfortable. Eb and I ran around the neighborhood to get exercise as it is a really nice with tree lined streets and little traffic. It was very quick to get to and from downtown via car and parking was easy right out front. I was their first guest, so they were still finishing things up, but nothing that affected my stay negatively. This was my first Airbnb experience so I wasn’t sure what to expect, but it was great.

    Brian2015-05-22T00:00:00Z
  • I loved my little home in Fernwood. Suite was very comfortable for one, and just fine for two when my mom joined me for a couple nights. Deb was a great and unobtrusive host and answered all requests promptly. The suite is thoughtfully decorated and supplied, and very clean. There are some great heritage elements, like three stained glass windows. I enjoyed the fragrant lilacs and blossoming rhodedrons right outside the door. Great neighbourhood - just a block from the Fernwood pub and a neighbourhood coffee shop. Thanks Deb!

    Erika 2016-04-26T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect spot for a rainy weekend in Victoria with family dog in tow! The suite is beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable with all the necessities and more. Deb and her family were friendly and helpful hosts. We look forward to our next visit in the new year!

    Jill2015-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • Deb was so welcoming. After a very long trip, Deb and her daughter showed me and my dog the cozy, sunny and very clean suite. It was perfect for me and my doggie. The little, fenced in front yard was particularly convenient to let my dog out (and clean it up right away, of course!) Deb was very helpful to me when I had questions and is genuinely kind. I really enjoyed my stay-- I had everything I needed, and more!

    Bright ground level bachelor in the heart of Fernwood. Our spot is only a short walk from Fernwood Square which has restaurants, cafes, a theater and more! We are also on a direct bus route to downtown, or only a short 20-minute walk. Our suite has been recently renovated and is perfect for two people, but can also house a third.
    Our space is a bright 450 square foot, ground bachelor suite, located in Fernwood. The suite has recently been renovated, with all new furnishings, with its own private entrance. There is a full 4 piece bathroom and full, well-equipped kitchen, with all the basics. Coffee, tea and a Nespresso machine (with pods) are provided as well as en-suite laundry facilities and a closet. Suite is great for 2 people but additional bedding can be supplied for a 3rd. The small bed could fit two small children if needed. There is a brand new, comfortable queen size bed, as well as ikea sofa (that turns into a floor mattress), so this suite could sleep 3 comfortably (we are family friendly!). It is a bright space, with your own heating controls, WiFi, and TV, with Netflix access and cable. Laundry is located en-suite, and there is plenty of street parking available.
    Fernwood Square is a beautiful, historic location, and a community meeting place that is buzzing almost any day of the week. Fernwood is s community where neighbors know one another, and meet up at one of the many shops or eateries surrounding the square. We are also home to the Historic Belfry Theatre, which is a Fernwood landmark.
  • Aleigh and Nic were very welcoming! The place was beautiful and clean and I really enjoyed staying in Fernwood. A few minutes walk to the bus routes but a scenic walk it is. Thanks again!

    Jodi2017-04-08T00:00:00Z

    Michael2017-10-29T00:00:00Z
  • The location of this suite is in the lovely quiet area of Fernwood which is very walkable to downtown. The studio suite was clean and the kitchen was well equipped, although we didn't cook there. It was very easy to find a parking spot on the street which was nice.

    Ute2017-09-06T00:00:00Z
  • Great place. Great communication. It was as expected. Thanks for Nexpresso and laundry. We'll look you up again.

    Robert2017-09-19T00:00:00Z
  • Aleigh and Nic were wonderful hosts. They were very communicative leading up to our stay and provided us with everything we could want or need (guidebooks, lots of fresh towels, toiletries, even beer and fruit!) to make our stay as comfortable and easy as possible. The place itself was super cute and just a quick walk away from the bus stop. Would recommend them to anyone staying in Victoria!

    Mei2017-05-28T00:00:00Z
  • I was thoroughly pleased with Nic and Aleigh's suite for our weekend trip. The location made it very easy to access the places we wanted to visit in Victoria and it was set up with all things anyone needs. The space was comfortable, very clean and the hosts were easy to communicate with.

    Our cottage is a bright, calm space, accented with west coast simplicity and lush comfort. Organic herb garden for your harvest. Located in one of Victoria's most interesting residential neighbourhoods, steps from theatres, cafes, restaurants, and galleries, and only a 20-25 minute walk to downtown.
    We are excited to welcome you to our cottage! It is an airy and bright small space that has just enough and not too much. We love simple comfort and have invested in a great queen bed, quality linens, and a shower/bathroom that you won't want to leave. We also love to cook so the basics for preparing food are there for you, from sharp knives to a blender and coffee grinder/Bodum for great morning starts. The cottage itself is situated between the house and our organic vegetable and fruit garden. In the summers, with the skylight open, bird song, soft voices of people walking by or working in the garden, and the buzz of bees will fill the air. (Yes, there is a screen!)
    Fernwood has been called "Victoria's most interesting neighbourhood". To know the real Victoria, is to know Fernwood! Art abounds and the neighbourhood radiates with a sense of community. Stroll through community gardens, check out the galleries and boutiques in the square, pause for a coffee and the scene at the Cornerstone Café, and wrap the day off with dinner at one of the local restaurants and a play at The Belfry, Victoria's premier theatre. Everything is just steps away, yet the neighbourhood is completely residential in feel ! When you are ready to wander farther, Craigdarroch Castle is a 15 minute stroll, and downtown/chinatown/harbour/tourist attractions are only 25 min away! Some our favourite downtown restaurants are Agrius, Olo, Zambris, The Noodle Box, Rebar and Fishhook. For breakfast/brunch, we love The Ruby and Nourish. . . and maybe you'll discover something great to report back to us!!
  • Fernwood Cottage was the little retreat in the city I was hoping for. It was accurately described and nestled behind Jelena's home in a funky, centrally located neighbourhood with a few eateries, small grocer, eclectic little shops, yoga studio and holistic practitioners. There was also an evening market in the neighbourhood square one night. The cottage didn't have a TV, which I appreciated. Instead I had fun relaxing and reminiscing by spinning vinyl from the '60s, '70s and '80s on the retro record player. There was internet access and it worked effectively. I had a rental car and was able to easily park on the street in front of the property as I came and went. Jelena was quick and attentive in coordinating the booking and following up before my arrival. She was a friendly and helpful host, providing lots of tips and ideas for things to do. I experienced Victoria in a whole new way thanks to some of Jelena's suggestions and by staying in her cottage in Fernwood.

  • I stayed in Jelena's charming cottage with a friend en route to Portland and it was everything we needed for one night. It's in a great location walking distance to a good restaurant and coffee shop. It was clean and Jelena was very easy to communicate with. Thanks for having us!

    Candace2016-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • Jelena's cottage is picture perfect. We couldn't have dreamt up a better or cozier little spot for our tiny family. From the adorable bowl sink in the bathroom, the record player with all the best music at our fingertips, to the gorgeous garden, and BEYOND ideal location.. We truly never wanted to leave and we're dreaming up ways to convince her to let us stay forever. You will not be disappointed if you book. Thank you so much for your hospitality, we can't wait to come back :)

  • Jelena's place was perfectly convenient and comfortable. She was more than accommodating and friendly! We were able to easily navigate there, via the cheap bus system, from the ferry terminal in Sidney and access to downtown and was quick and easy. The cabin was warm, relaxing, well decorated and cleaned and provided a very relaxing environment. The small neighborhood of Fernwood was really quaint and within walking distance (0.1km) there were bars and cafes. We would definitely recommend this place to others and most certainly stay again.

    Amy2016-10-12T00:00:00Z
  • We loved staying at Jelena's beautiful little cottage! It had everything we needed and is perfect walking distance to cute shops, restaurants, and a cafe (try Shine Cafe on Fort street!). It is also fairly close to downtown, easily accessible by bus. Jelena was a great host - very responsive to our questions and made us feel welcome. We look forward to staying again :)

    Kate2016-10-23T00:00:00Z
  • Place is as described. Clean, comfy, well appointed. And welcoming. Fresh flowers from the garden we're a nice touch. Very safe location. We walked to the harbor in about 20 minutes. To the castle in 10. Pub/restaurant nearby as well as a coffee shop and organic grocery. Check out Butchart Gardens, and catch the fireworks​ show on Saturdays in the summer. We love Victoria and will stay here again for a return visit.

    Maryann2017-07-11T00:00:00Z
  • Jelena was a lovely hostess. We would love to stay here again. It had everything we needed and it was located in a part of Victoria that we had not explored before. Would highly recommend to others.

    Bev2016-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • Jelena and her cottage were amazing! My wife and I were there for our honeymoon and couldn't have had a better time. Jelena was very helpful, giving us suggestion on places to see and she was very easy to contact. The cottage was beautiful and very clean. It had everything we needed and more. The location was great being just a 20 minute walk to downtown and located in a lovely neighborhood. I highly recommend Jelena's cottage to anyone looking to stay in Victoria.

    Only steps away from beautiful Ross Bay and historical Ross Bay Cemetery. This totally new suite has it all: 3 HD flat screen TVs with hundreds of channels, UNLIMITED HI SPEED WIFI! Bus stop across the street, shopping centre at the end of the block, short bike ride to downtown and a safe, quiet neighborhood. Everything is brand new May 2016.
    A warm welcome awaits you in this lovely living room with natural gas fireplace and sound proofed walls and ceiling. The heated tile bathroom floor is so welcoming when you step out of the tiled tub and shower.
    Victoria is a wonderful city and our district, Fairfield, is one of the most sought after areas to own a property in. It is only a five minute drive to the downtown core but far enough away that you can enjoy the peace, quiet and safety of community living. We have a shopping mall at the end of our block which is only a four minute walk away. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fairfield,_Greater_Victoria
  • The house was perfect! Beautiful home, beautiful garden, beautiful location. It was great for my mother in law who has mobility issues due to a recent surgery and close to the beach for exploring tide pools and hanging out with the family. It was a wonderful weekend!

    Our home is located in beautiful Oak Bay which is a ten minute drive from downtown Victoria. It is a short walk to Oak Bay village with shops, restaurants and galleries. Willows Beach with its view of Mount Baker is five short blocks away.
    Our newly redecorated guest room and bathroom are comfortable and quiet. Both are furnished with new fresh linen. The bed is queen-size and the closet affords ample room in which to hang clothes. The room is equipped with a flat screen television with cable and Netflix. Wi-Fi is also available for our guests. This is a non-smoking home.
    Quiet, safe residential area with many beautiful gardens and heritage homes. It is a great neighbourhood in which to walk and cycle.
  • We had a really great stay at Lorraine's home, although we only were there for 1 night. The house is located only 10 min from downtown in a beautiful quiet neighbourhood, only 3 blocks from the beach where we could see eagles and sealions at night. She and her husband have been very welcoming and helpful with informations for the rest of our trip. The house is wisely divided so that we had access to our own bathroom. On the morning, they offered us some tea/coffee and really good homemade muffins and we enjoyed discussing with Lorraine while getting settled for the day. Would very much recommend this place!

    Camille2016-06-11T00:00:00Z
  • Lorraine and Jim are such lovely people! We really enjoyed our brief stay in their beautiful, comfortable home. Meeting Rory the dog, and having warm muffins for breakfast, were the icing on the cake. We'd definitely stay again.

    Nicole2017-06-10T00:00:00Z

    Alexandra2017-06-22T00:00:00Z
  • Lorraine& Jim were very welcoming. Everything was clean and organised and privacy was respected. They were really helpful about things to do and see in Victoria ( in a day and a half!). The loan of brollies was appreciated as was the tip to see the Butchart gardens- well worth the money. The area they live in is quiet/ genteel with easy parking and a lovely village to explore nearby, and easy drive into downtown Victoria. Can recommend it.

    Sarah2016-09-18T00:00:00Z

  • Had a wonderful two night stay with Jim and Lorraine. The room was clean, nicely furnished, the bed luxuriously comfortable, and the bathroom modern. I loved the location with easy access to downtown, Oak Bay village with quaint shops and eateries, and only a few blocks from the shore. My hosts were pleasant and well-informed in response to my queries about local things. Best of all, Lorraine's lovely, elderly border collie, Rory melted my heart with his affection. I will certainly consider booking on future visits.

    Garden level 2 bedroom suite in the heart of Fernwood. Our spot is only a short walk from Fernwood Square which has restaurants, cafes, a theater and more! We are also on a direct bus route to downtown, or only a short 20-minute walk. Our suite is perfect for four people, but can also house a fifth.
    Our space is a bright, garden level suite, located in Fernwood. The suite has no stairs and its own private entrance. There is a full 3 piece bathroom (no bath) and full, well-equipped kitchen, with all the basics. If something is missing or you need something, just message us. Coffee and tea are provided. Suite is great for 4 people but additional bedding can be supplied for a 5th. There is a 2 bedrooms; both with double beds. We have a pull out floor mattress sofa bed also. It is a bright space, with your own heating controls, WiFi, and TV, with cable. The bathroom is small. But does have a larger shower. Because this is a basement we want to be very clear about ceiling height. Height is as follows: Living Room/Dining/kitchen: 6'8" Larger Bedroom: 6'8" Smaller Bedroom: 6'9" but has a lowered ceiling in some area of 5'11" Bathroom: 6'4"
    Fernwood Square is a beautiful, historic location, and a community meeting place that is buzzing almost any day of the week. Fernwood is s community where neighbors know one another, and meet up at one of the many shops or eateries surrounding the square. We are also home to the Historic Belfry Theatre, which is a Fernwood landmark.
  • Nicely situated in a quiet neighborhood, has everything you need! The chocolates on the towel were a nice touch, and Aleigh and Erika have been very accommodating to our needs!

Thanks again Aleigh and Erika!

    Brendan2017-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • Aleigh and Erika's place was amazing. It was clean, cute and sufficient to accomodate 3 of us who had stayed. Very close to downtown Victoria which was awesome! Aleigh and Erika made our first Airbnb a breeze and answered all of our questions quickly. They even provided us with towels, chocolates and a few other essentials which was great! Definately would stay with them again!

    Travelers from far or near... you are welcome here. This private suite is located on the top floor of a large and quiet house. With simple furnishings, four skylights, and many indoor plants, the space has a fresh and relaxing energy. A comfortable desk area makes it perfect for the business traveler looking to get some work done. I am excited to meet you and to help make your stay amazing!
    In this private suite, there is a bedroom, bathroom and living space (with a desk and futon couch). There is no kitchen or coffee machine, so you will need to eat your meals out. There is a mini fridge in the suite though and a lovely cafe just down the street. The bedroom has a queen sized mattress (firm memory foam) that sleeps two comfortably. Up to two more can fit on the double sized futon in the living area, though it may not be the most comfortable stay due to the size of the suite. I will set up the futon as a bed if you let me know prior to your arrival. We use biodegradable and eco-friendly soaps, detergents and cleaners to keep the space fresh and clean!
    This part of Victoria is very quiet and safe. Neighbours are nice and friendly- predominately elderly and young families. I have lived here for 10+ years and I love it! There are grocery stores within walking distance, as well as many great restaurants, cafes and coffee shops- I can give you some "insider tips" i.e. the best sandwiches in town! There are also a few gyms really close by and many more in the Downtown area. I can suggest some great walks/runs nearby :)
  • The room was really nice and everything was very thoughtful. The host and hostess recommended some great places to explore around Victoria and had many maps and brochures for us.

    Sharon2016-10-10T00:00:00Z

  • We spent 2 nights at Odettes basement apartment in Victoria. The apartment is newly renovated and very light even its in the basement. A large well equipped kitchen invites for cooking and the bedroom has the perfect size for a short visit. Everything was really clean and organised and we felt invited from the first second. Odette is a great host which tries to make your stay as easy and enjoyable as possible and can give you advises and tips for your visit on the island. We can highly recommend her place to everyone who would like to stay a few nights in Victoria to explore the area. We will come back for sure ;) thank you! Mareike and Mathias

    Craigdarroch Castle is across the street. The official residence of the Lieutenant Governor is a five-minute walk away. Victoria’s downtown restaurants, cafés and stores, are within easy walking distance. Thrifty and Save On grocery stores are a mile or so away. A convenience store and gas station are two minutes away. The Jubilee hospital is within walking distance. Buses to U Vic are close by and frequent.
    The suite is newly renovated throughout and very clean. It includes new appliances and in-floor heating. The ceiling is 7 feet (84 inches) except the bathroom and shared laundry area, where it is 77 inches (6'5"). The bed is a medium-firm twin (width 53 1/8 inches or 135 cm. A queen is 59 7/8 inches or 152 cm)).

    Evelyn2017-06-20T00:00:00Z
  • This place is literally right across the castle in Victoria and is actually not too far from the downtown / inner harbour area. The unit is cozy but very comfortable for 2 people. The kitchen is well equipped and Philip generously provided a host of other things in the kitchen including condiments and olive oil during our stay. It was a fantastic stay and though the ceiling height is a bit low (as clearly stated in the airbnb description) this was not much of an issue for us considering our height.

    C2017-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • We rented out Phillip's suite for a guest we had staying with us. The suite was beautiful, very clean, and has everything you need to make your stay comfortable. The location is perfect, and an easy walk to downtown and to amenities. Phillip met us briefly to hand us the key, and was very helpful and kind. We would highly recommend this suite to anyone.

    Corie2017-07-24T00:00:00Z
  • My wife and I recently spent a couple of nights in Victoria and stayed in Philips lovely suite. Philip greeted us on arrival and gave us a friendly orientation. His suite has just recently been newly built. It is extremely clean and modern and very comfortable. It has all the amenities you could need for any length of stay. His house is about a 25 minute walk to downtown Victoria along Fort Street, which is a main street with many interesting stores and places to eat (I would recommend Avalon for breakfast and Cafe Brio for an amazing Italian dinner). We hope to be back in Victoria again soon and we will be back in Philips place, it is great value for anyone who doesn't need to be staying right in the downtown core.

    Ken2017-09-15T00:00:00Z

    Karine2017-10-23T00:00:00Z
  • This was the worst AirBnB we've ever stayed. To have no bathroom or water around your bedroom is not comfortable at all. The 'suite' is in the garden what is actually a small room. There is a water machine but is empty almost right away. The bathroom is in the middle of her house so everytime you want to use it you have to walk trough the living room - also in the middle of the night. In the room itself there were spider webs aswell.

    Michelle2017-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • This room was nicely decorated and cosy. It also had everything you could ever need. We stayed 10 days and cooked, stored our stuff, did laundry, and had complementary coffee and amenities. Great back yard patio as well. This Oak Bay place is right next to the grocery store, and within walking distance from restaurants. There is daily housekeeping, and a dedicated group of staff looking after the place. Houskeeping, and managers Linnette and Randy were the kindest most hospitable people. Couldn't have asked for more at a great price.

    Live like a local in a quirky carriage house near Royal Jubilee Hospital - Just a 10 to 15 minute drive, transit or bike ride to nearly any location in the city! The space is bright with two skylights; with a queen size loft bed, and a futon couch, it can comfortably accommodate two, or up to four people. This carriage house is very private and very central!
    -Perfect for two, but capable of fitting up to four people. -Very private with ground floor entry and your own patio area. -Fully-equipped kitchen (mini-fridge, two-burner stove, countertop convection oven, kettle, toaster, french-press, pots and pans, various dishware & utensils, coffee, tea, and more!) -Centrally located to all amenities including grocery stores, restaurants, coffee. -PLEASE READ BEFORE BOOKING: There are very steep stairs to access the queen size loft bed and limited clearance to the ceiling. If you are very tall, or think you might have trouble accessing a bed with a low ceiling, this could be a concern for you.
    We're in the heart of the city - just two blocks from Royal Jubilee Hospital and three blocks from Stadacona Park. We're also stumbling distance from the local pub, Christie's Carriage House. You can also hop on two different bus lines nearby to quickly get to downtown, UVIC, Camosun College, or nearly any other location in the city within 10 to 15 minutes! Restaurants and groceries are readily available just a 5-10 minute walk away.
  • Excellent accommodations and hostess. Very accommodating with a wealth of amenities available. Would highly recommend.

    Matthew2017-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • Great place! I enjoyed it's location in that it was conveniently located in between downtown and the University, allowing a quick bus trip up to Campus and a nice walk downtown. The place itself had everything one would need for a quick stay -- towels, french press, wifi, etc. I would certainly book again.

    Corey2017-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful spotless private space close to where you want to be in Victoria.

    Judy2017-06-30T00:00:00Z
  • Kate and Andy were fantastic! Super friendly hosts that were very responsive and helpful with any inquiries or trip suggestions. The loft was really adorable - minimalist vintage that felt very cozy. Everything was exceptionally clean and neat! It's a nice quiet neighbour that's close by amenities such as grocery stores. There's a rustic old pub around the corner too. Good central location for going downtown or local beaches. We really felt at home being here and it was an overall great experience :)

    Emily2016-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • Kate is very friendly and kind. We were enjoyed our stay.

    Mio2017-06-27T00:00:00Z
  • Kate is a great host! She is super friendly and easy to communicate with. Even before I arrived she made sure to make me feel welcome and at ease. There is parking available both on site and on the street. The loft is near major bus lines and is easily accessible without a vehicle. The loft suite inside is very cozy and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. With a full bathroom (shower only) and plenty of closet space to hang clothes. The queen loft bed itself is very cozy & comfortable. The suite was very clean and all linens were clean & plentiful. There is wifi and I had a bit of trouble with connection but a simple phone call to Kate solved that problem. She is quick to respond if anything arises. But she also respects privacy. I stayed 8 nights as I was in town for school. This is a great place to retire to at the end of a long busy day. There is no television but there are plenty of books. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the loft.

    Lori 2016-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at Kate's place for 3 nights. Check in and out was smooth as butter with the lockbox right out front. We didn't meet in person but communication was smooth and easy. The place itself is a converted garage suite. It's small but cozy. We enjoyed the hanging hammock. There's a full kitchen with everything you need (including growlers!), books and a few games to keep you entertained. Nice that there's also a parking spot on their driveway along with free street parking. The bed upstairs is a little compact so keep that in mind. As was the shower. We basically just used it to sleep so it was perfect for us. Good location (everything in Victoria is a 10 minute drive away) and very reasonable price.

    Jonathan2017-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • This was a great, private loft. Kate was very helpful in ensuring that I had everything for my stay!

    Melly2016-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • This is a wonderful place! The bed is super-comfortable, and the apartment feels very homey and snug. Amy started us off with biscuits, fruit, juice, and cream. Just a block or two from the bus line and restaurants and shops. Amy and Trent are both very friendly. We'd love to return.

    Arlyn2015-12-01T00:00:00Z

  • Easy, pleasant, hospitable. Amy and Trent have a perfect place for guests--a very private part of a lovely home with its own entrance on a quiet street in a great neighborhood. Just right for us because of the beach walks nearby and the proximity to some dear friends who had a house full of family for the event we attended. We really appreciated the extra touches: muffins and fruit and no pressure or obligation.

    John2015-09-13T00:00:00Z

  • It was late in the evening and as it's dark in the neighborhood i was not able to locate the house. Called Todd and he came out and found me. He greeted me and showed me around the first floor. The rooms are clean and the two bedrooms can accommodate four adults (beds are king/queen size). In general it's clean and comfortable. There are some fruit (banana, oranges) on the kitchen table. As it's BnB, so I think it would be better if some bread and milk can be provided. The refrigerator is almost empty. We didn't eat breakfast there.

    Claire2015-08-30T00:00:00Z
  • Heidi and Todd’s place was immaculate, very comfortable and inviting. Over the 4 months we stayed there, Heidi and Todd made us feel like we were at home and part of their family but we also had all the privacy we needed. They were excellent hosts- friendly, kind, caring and helpful in all ways. They went well beyond “the call of duty”. The house is very well located. The neighborhood is quiet but with easy access to downtown. We highly recommend their place to everyone who wants to the stay in the beautiful city of Victoria. The Novaks

Great space plenty of room.

    This cute basement suite is in safe residential Fernwood. It's close to public transit and parks, and steps away from a coffee shop and local general store. While there is no kitchen, it has everything you need to prepare simple meals at home: mini fridge, toaster oven, kettle, kitchen utensils, dishes, etc. You’ll love my place because it's cozy, and very clean. My place is good for couples and solo adventurers.
    This is a bachelor style suite in our basement, and we live upstairs. You have your own private entrance, your own full private bathroom and full size washer and drier. Please note there is no kitchen.
    This listing is in beautiful residential, and safe Fernwood. We live in the area of Haultain Corners, complete with everything you need: Koffi (coffee shop), a local general store with quality local meats and produce and gift items, a yoga studio, a barber shop, and two corner grocery stores. It's close to Hillside Mall and not far from downtown.

  • The room is adorable. Very clean and put together perfectly. the location is great. Since I had my daughter it was nice to have a park right down the street. Felt very safe. The stay was amazing. They have thought of everything for the room and even supply you with shower items and dishes. Awesome. They were great hosts and were quick to give me recommendations for restaurants in the area! :)

    Brooke2017-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • This clean little basement suite was perfect for my needs. I needed a workspace, quiet, good sleep, good internet, good shower, wee refrigerator, parking and safe neighborhood. Excellent on all counts. Excellent attention to detail! The ONE thing I would remind tall people about is that the ceiling in the bathroom is only a little more than 6’5” (196 cm) high in spots, including in the bath/shower. The gem was the coffee shop across the way called Koffi. Simple, artsy, friendly, unpretentious staff and REALLY good pastries and sandwiches. I recommend it and would stay there again.

    Awesome home in the heart of Victoria's Arts district, Fernwood. (The Gladstone House) is located at the door step of the historic Belfry Theatre, the Fernwood square and Victoria's most colourful neighbourhood. Stay here and experience the engaged creative community, a glass of wine at Stages Wine Bar or a craft beer and some food at the family friendly Fernwood Inn. Boutique shops, buzzing vibrant eateries, and a fun funky community is what you can expect to find on your trip to Fernwood.
    10' ceilings, original hardwood floors, custom furniture and fully renovated eat-in kitchen and designer bathroom highlight the character of this charming Fernwood home. Large bedrooms, a front porch to relax on and a very comfortable living room contribute to make this a great place to stay.
    Amenities at your door step. The Glamorous Gladstone House is only a few doors away from Fernwood Square which features boutique shops including an organic grocer, the family friendly Fernwood in restaurant, Stages Wine Bar the Cornerstone Cafe and more. Twinkling lights over the street, live music performances in the square and parks and playground across the street and nearby fill out what makes this a great neighbourhood. Not to mention you're only a 10 minute walk to downtown.
  • This place is as described. We didn't get to meet Ashley in person but her communication was very prompt and she did everything to make our stay comfortable. Please understand that this house is a little old and you can see the rustic charm in the floors and the decor. This may work for some, but not others. Overall, it was a pleasant stay with a fairly convenient drive to downtown Victoria.

    Clarissa2017-06-25T00:00:00Z
  • Cute little bungalow in a great neighborhood. Walking distance to shops, restaurants, and public trans. A bit out of the way from downtown though if that is a concern for you. The house sits in the back yard behind another house, which is under construction and there were workers all weekend, even working in the lower level of the airbnb, which we had not been told a head of time Minimal supplies, broken dishwasher, and dirty floors were a downside, but I imagine all will be taken care of shortly.

    christine2017-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • The home is centraly located we drove to the downtown less than 10 minutes. Shopping super convenient for groceries or snacks. The Ferwood cafe she recommends is like 7 min walking is phenomenal you get to experience the soul of the neighborhood. The home is nicely renovated. You do share the space downstairs is Another rental. But no problems or interference. Would definitely stay again.

She was so helpful with letting us know about the area, where to go, how yo get there and what streets to avoid due to traffic. We loved the tour she took us on... so wonderful to see places that only she could have shared with us. We enjoyed hearing her stories and history of the area. Breakfast was perfect and our room was just as we had seen and hoped. Thank you so much for making our stay special... one we will never forget! We will for sure hope to stay with here again when coming back to the lovely Victoria BC!

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our visit in Victoria. Constance made us feel at home, giving us suggestions, chatting over the breakfast she provided and giving us a home tour and educating us on Emily Carr and other local history. Guests should be aware that it's a smoking home in the event they have reactions to that, but being the weather was so nice, windows and doors were open and an air filter was provided in the guest room. We had our own car, but it's my understanding her home is close to the bus system. Her home is close enough to walk to the Oak Harbor community.

    Michelle2017-05-29T00:00:00Z
  • Constance was the best host you could have always happy to do anything and talk about anything she makes a connection like no other and is understanding of everything, I had the best time here and felt more at home than ever. I would recommend staying here to anyone.

    Our guesthouse is a bright airy space, with tons of room for two. Heated concrete floors and a full size kitchen, laundry facilities and a comfy queen size bed await your arrival. We are located on a nice, quiet residential street that is a 35 min walk or a 10 min bus ride or an easy 10 min bike ride downtown. Visit Koffi at the end of our street or head to Fernwood Square for dinner and a show at the Belfry Theatre.
    Farmers markets are abundant in the summertime. We have one on Wednesday nights at the end of our street featuring, local food trucks, pottery, jewelry, and a band. Great local coffee at Koffi or at Fernwood square.
  • This really was a beautiful guest house. It was everything as advertised and more. Very beautiful, comfortable and conveniently located. Jill responded quickly to all our questions and concerns and offered suggestions as to things to do. As an added bonus we got to meet her adorable dog. This was a fabulous place to stay in Victoria and will be my first choice for next time.

  • This is by far one of the best Airbnb places we have stayed at. It is perfect for a couple. The unit is clean, modern, spacious, very comfortable, and very well equipped. Our hosts were very friendly and welcoming. When we come back to Victoria, we will definitely try to stay here again. We highly recommend Jill's place.

  • This gem in the city was better than we expected. Perfect for a couple to use as a base to check out Victoria and had everything we needed to cook meals and pack picnics when needed but close enough to walk to our favourite cafes and shops. Pictures don't do it justice and it was extremely clean and modern. Jill was a great host, there if we needed but also made it a private getaway for us. Would definitely stay again!!

    Beautiful Guesthouse
    30 reviews
    The suite is one of two suites in a character 1912 house. The suite is entirely private with your own access, nothing is shared with the other suite in the house. The suite is close to restaurants and dining and the beach. You’ll love this place because of the kitchen, the coziness, and the high ceilings. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travellers.
    The suite is equipped with a fully-provisioned kitchen, so it is good for cooking your own meals and it has all the provisions for a great Keurig coffee and I have provided a range of different roasts/flavors to enjoy, but feel free to bring your own K-cup flavor along to and please leave recommendations for future guests too. Would love to hear what selection you would like or recommend. Same goes for tea. I believe most travelers are here to enjoy our outside beautiful Vancouver Island vistas, but I do offer cable and have Chromecast if you want to broadcast from your laptop. This is a one-bedroom suite and the bedroom offers a really nice queen-size bed. The living room has a chaise and a sofa. A cafeteria table comprises the dining area and you can pull it out for more seating to invite guests over for dining.
    The neighborhood is a quiet residential area, yet central and very close to a lot of restaurants, grocery stores and coffee shops. You could walk to any number of them within five minutes.
  • Pam was a wonderful, the most helpful and super kind host. That was truly my #1 Airbnb experience. The apartment is furnished with a lot of style and u feel immediately at home. Unfortunately we could only stay for one night and had to move further on. Connection to downtown is super easy with several Bus lines next door. Anytime again

    Till2017-04-17T00:00:00Z

  • Pam's lovely 1912 1/2 duplex is amazing value for a very pleasant Victoria stay. The suite, literally the front part of a lovely character house, is accessed through pretty tulip-strewn gardens and a wide front stair case. You enter into a large foyer with a gorgeous living room to the right, a generous bedroom to the left, dining straight on through and leading to a very large kitchen. The bathroom is smaller but perfectly adequate and functional with the all important large shower and very good shower head. The suite is beautifully furnished with many lovely details; i.e.: hard wood floors, stained glass windows, electric fireplace in living room, double white ceramic farm sink in kitchen, etc. There were windows for natural light in every room. The linens and towels were of excellent quality. Pam was easy and speedy to communicate with, met us as pre-arranged and provided very nice breakfasts through out our 3 night stay. We especially enjoyed the steel cut oatmeal with honey and dried fruits. We could park off street in the driveway at the side of the house. The location was across from the Royal Jubilee Hospital and while we could hear some traffic we didn't hear any emergency vehicles at all. The space and comfort of this suite is such that you could easily stay here a week or longer. Recommended!

  • Great little find. Easy walk to nice pub. Very clean. Most comfy bed. Pam very helpful. Thanks Pam.

    Diane2017-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • A great experience!! Pam's house is full of character, made all the more cozy by Pam's thoughtfulness and attention to detail. Breakfast was delicious. A great home away from home and very relaxing!

    Melissa2017-05-24T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you for a lovely stay Pam. We really enjoyed your advice about Victoria and we especially appreciated the delicious breakfast you made! BR

    Emil2017-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • The breakfasts were amazing. The space was great, lots of room. Pam had chrome cast, which allowed us to watch our Netflix. Nice! Oak Bay Area was pretty neat, so we walked a lot in the area. Penny Farthing restaurant was certainly quite nice to enjoy a beverage and a meal. We would come back.

    Theresa2017-03-22T00:00:00Z

    Bright, clean lower level suite. Private entrance opening on to backyard patio. Kitchenette with fridge, microwave, coffee machine, and toaster oven. Located a block and a half from Willows beach and a short walk to restaurants and shopping on Oak Bay Avenue or Estevan. 10 minute drive to downtown and close to bus routes.
    This is an older neighbourhood with character homes. Short walk to many stores and restaurants without going into downtown Victoria. Downtown is also very close, 10 min drive.
  • Great location in a quiet neighborhood. The unit is a basement suite that is a 5 min walk from a large sand beach, and is about a 10-12 min drive from downtown Victoria. Unit is clean and comfortable. Highlights include a large bed and a private outdoor patio with a large table and sectional. Trudy was always quick to reply and offered recommendations for things to do in town.

    Derek2017-07-16T00:00:00Z
  • Trudy was very helpful in getting us settled in, including directing us to the nearest grocery store. This location is an easy walk to the beach, a great coffee shop and a little further down the street is Oak Bay. Oak Bay has a quaint shopping district with galleries and other independent shops. This location has an easy access to downtown Victoria. The accommodation itself is very spacious for two people. The kitchen is well equipped. There is a separate entrance to the suite that includes an outdoor sitting area. There you will find a couch and dinning table. If we had more time in Victoria we would have enjoyed lounging around the outdoor living space! Trudy and her husband live upstairs, but are very quiet. Although we didn't cross paths in the week we spent in their home, Trudy was very responsive to messages. It was a lovely location and great hosts! We would certainly stay here in the future!

    Coralee2017-07-01T00:00:00Z

    Terry2017-04-30T00:00:00Z
  • Trudy and her husband were a most gracious host and their suite was very beautiful and decorated. This suite is very near to the beautiful beach and also less than 10 min to downtown. As well as, it was very comfortable​ like our home.

    Amin2017-05-22T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay comfortable and in a great location.

    Anne2017-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent welcome, great communication throughout our two night stay. Beautiful, well stocked apartment, photos show reality. Short drive to city centre. Wonderful beach for walks or picnics.

    Martine2017-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you Trudy for a great stay. I really enjoyed your place. It was perfectly located near Willow Beach, with easy access to transportation. It was clean, bright and included lots of little touches that enhanced my visit. Your beautiful patio was very much enjoyed.

    Andy2017-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • Trudys place was very clean and comfortable. The bed was incredibly cozy. We would stay here again. There were lots of little extras from home baked goodies to delicious coffee. A home away from home.

    Beautiful, bright space in historic Fernwood. Walk to local restaurants, theatres, coffee shops and more. Conveniently located close to major transit, shopping markets and the Royal Jubilee Hospital. We look forward to hosting you!
    Step into your modern, well appointed Victoria suite. Bathed in tons of natural light, the space features a private entrance and open-layout coupling contemporary design with classic touches. Prepare your meals in the thoughtfully equipped kitchen, soak up the warmth from the bathroom's heated-floor and walk-in shower or simply relax in the comfy, private bedroom. If you're visiting with friends or little ones there's plenty of space for all. Watch TV on the couch which conveniently converts to a comfortable double bed. Enjoy the ambience of the electric fireplace. In-suite laundry (not shared)
    Historic Fernwood is a family forward, centrally located neighbourhood in the heart of Victoria. The area features established restaurants, coffee shops and grocery stores. With many young families in the neighbourhood there are numerous parks to choose from.
  • A lovely, quiet part of Victoria, about twenty mins walk into town but a fair trade off against being in the touristy bustle. Heather was a lovely host, very kind and discrete. Stages, her recommendation for a casual dinner, was fabulous, as was loafing around this beautiful city.

    Mark2017-07-19T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay. Heather and Nick were very accomodating for us and our small baby. The place was very clean and comfortable. Would highly recommend

    Debbie2017-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • I highly recommend this place. Everything is very light, clean, equipped and has parking. The local suggestions were very helpful and the place is a perfect spot to explore Victoria.

    Tinne2017-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • The amenities are fabulous, the place was super clean, the hosts were extremely helpful with suggestions for where to go and what to eat, the location allowed for quick and easy access to Victoria's sights. We would highly recommend this to everyone.

    Dianne2017-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • This place was clean and cute. Loved it , recommend it for sure. Don't let the outside look or surroundings fool you. Its the perfect place and perfect price. I would do it again.

    Michelle2017-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • Heather and Nick's place is very beautiful, quiet and clean. It looks freshly renovated and had everything we needed. They provided helpful information about the neighbourhood and great places too go out and enjoy the city. They even left a local bottle of beer as a nice house-warming present :)

    Jenny2017-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • My wife and I stayed at Heather and Nick's and it was lovely. It was very simple and extremely clean. It was the perfect size for the two of us and even if there was another person in our party it would have had plenty of room. Heather and Nick were very welcoming and communicated very well with us as far as check in and check out. If this is available when we come back to Victoria we would stay again in a heartbeat. Also, as an aside there is a very good tapas wine bar called "Stage" that we can not wait to go back to, and as a bonus it is just a short walk away. Lovely place and thanks for sharing your home with us!

    Ryan2017-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • Great spot, perfect for our family. Heather and Nick are strong communicators and provided lots of very helpful information. Apartment was well-stocked with all we needed!

    This is a newly renovated ground level suite with a private entrance. There is a brand new king size bed and a full size crib, making this an ideal space for a couple or a small family with a baby or a toddler. Your suite is in a quiet neighbourhood and is a short walk to Fernwood village, Royal Jubilee hospital, Oak Bay village and many parks. 20 min walk to down town. Neighbouring house has a similar Airbnb suite if you are travelling with a larger group. Fresh espresso and tea available!
    If you are travelling with small children, you can travel "lightly". We have all the baby/toddler necessities available for your use, including toys, books, bath and more!
    Fenwood is a beautiful vibrant neighbourhood. Our street has a great coffee shop, a pub (Fernwood Inn) and the best restaurant in town (Stage). There are 5 parks within a few blocks. It is very walkable and transit to downtown is 1 block away.
  • This place is a great find. Spacious, clean, lots of amenities. Great location - not right downtown but very close and in a lovely, walkable neighbourhood. We didn't get to meet Vanja in person, but she was super helpful and accommodating over email. Check-in was super easy - even though we arrived really late. We'll book this place again for sure. Great value for money.

    Shannon & Dave2017-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay at Vanja's place. Walking into the studio the atmosphere is bright, and tidy. The studio is furnished in a simple but well-finished style. On one side of the room there is a large and very comfortable bed (and a crib for our daughter). Vanja was so nice to leave some toys our little one could play with, it was very much appreciated!! On the other side of the room there is a table and a kitchen and by the door a small open "closet" for jackets and shoes. The kitchen has a microwave, a fridge, and a great coffee machine with steamer. We really enjoyed sipping our homemade cappuccino in the morning. Unfortunately the stove top is not available for use as they were not able to install a vent. We loved walking around the Fernwood neighbourhood, it's a nice and quiet residential area. Few blocks from the studio there is a lively corner with shops, theatre, Café and restaurants. The communication before and during our stay was nice and smooth. During our stay, we had a slight misunderstanding, but Vanja was very kind and helpful. I highly recommend this studio for a relaxing stay enjoying the beauty of Victoria.

    Francesca2017-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • No surprises! Vanja's suite was exactly how it appeared in the photo. It was clean, and bath and kitchen were stocked with just enough (we did some light food prep: cutting up some fruit). Check-in/out was a breeze and very convenient. Prior to our stay, Vanja was great with providing suggestions for things to do in the city. She was very mindful of stocking the suite with toddler essentials. We loved how close this location is to the downtown core, just a 7 min drive.

    Hina2017-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • Vanja and her spot in Fernwood are wonderful! It's bright and well laid out. She definitely has a designer's eye. The shining star of the place for us was the shower. It was glorious! So much heat and pressure. And she has a lot of different shampoos and conditioners available. I hadn't planned on washing my hair so I didn't pack any but went for it when I wanted to stay in a little bit longer. Also exceptional was the set up for traveling with a child. I've never stayed in an Airbnb that was so easy with a toddler. The crib was fantastic, the high chair at the table was really nice to have, and the toys and books! So many! My daughter immediately went to work when we arrived, exploring everything. Vanja also sent us a great list of recommendations for things to do around the city. Her communication was just beyond expectation from the time we booked until we went home. The bed was indeed brand new, and everything was super clean. We had plenty of the warmest and softest bedding. We didn't know where the space heater was the first night but it was fine once we were under the covers. The king bed is actually two twin beds pushed together. Totally fine for a couple, but with us sleeping all 3 together in the bed, it did tend to leave one of us in the crack. It will be so nice when the stove is working, I'll probably want to just move in. The tea kettle was great! Vanja has a great selection of teas that I really enjoyed while we were there. All in all, it was a great and really comfortable place for our family to stay. Thank you, Vanja, for being such a wonderful host!

    Bright ground level studio suite in our beautiful 1911 character home on a quiet street in the heart of Fernwood, an area known for its eclectic culture & community spirit. We are a few blocks from the restaurants and shops in Fernwood Village and a 25 minute walk to downtown Victoria.
    This is a cheerful, 500 square foot ground floor studio suite in our 1911 character home located in Fernwood, one of Victoria’s most cherished neighborhoods. The suite has been fully renovated, newly furnished and has its own private entrance. There is a full bathroom and a full, well appointed kitchen stocked with all the basics including tea and local Fernwood coffee. If there is anything you need and don’t have, please feel free to ask! We are three blocks away from the heart of Fernwood village, so our local coffee shop, pub, restaurants, organic market and more are at your fingertips. There is a comfortable queen size bed as well as a futon style sofa, so this suite can comfortably sleep up to three adults or a family of four. It is a bright space with 7’ ceilings and you have access to your own heat controls, wifi and TV with Netflix access. Our laundry room is located near the entrance of the suite and is free for use. There is plenty of street parking available on our quiet tree-lined street. Please note: our family home is a busy house with two small children, a dog and a cat (and 2 adults) living on the main floor above the suite. The house has been soundproofed and we are respectful of our guests, but it is an old house and you will hear us upstairs and occasionally run into us and our friendly dog Leo and cat Milton in the backyard. We are a great fit for couples, business travelers and families but not those looking for utmost quiet and solitude.
    Our home is located in Fernwood, one of Victoria’s most treasured neighborhoods known for its historic charm and dynamic community. We are three blocks away from Fernwood village where you will find our local coffee shop, family friendly pub, restaurants, organic market, art galleries, shops, day spa, and the Belfry, Victoria’s celebrated theatre with regularly playing shows. There are also bakeries, cafés, a bagel shop, a hand-crafted ice cream shop, tennis courts and parks within close walking distance.

  • I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Kate & Jessica's place and hope to return during my next visit to Victoria. The place was very clean, fully equipped kitchen, and just set up in a very comfy/homy way. Great neighbourhood with nice coffeeshops within walking distance, and a little grocery store.
