The apartment looks appealing and very nice from the photos; it is better in person! Darryl was responsive from the start. He extended a warm welcome and provided a property tour and helpful tips upon our arrival. The apartment is in a very nice location with an easy 5 minute walk to the bus stop heading downtown. The grounds are...

We had a great stay at this place, it was very clean and had a nice atmosphere. Darryl was very friendly as well and Lucy (the dog) wanted to play fetch with our son. One possible improvement I would like to suggest is curtains in the master-bedroom. It was very light, early in the morning.

Management response:

Hello Ronald. And thanks for your wonderful review of my home. It was my pleasure also to have you and I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay. As the blinds are Venetian blinds sometimes it's a matter of which way you direct the light if you turn the venetians upwards the light is considerably reduced than if you have them...

First off, the host, Darryl was amazing. From our first contact he was informative and professional. His apartment is bright, located on the top floor and ULTRA CLEAN. We have done vacation rentals before but have never found an apartment so well appointed and so CLEAN! The beds are amazing as well. The King bed is memory foam and we...

About the neighbourhood
Located in central Victoria with immediate access to transit, yet in a very quiet area on Mount Tolmie. The local is second to none, with access to downtown and the harbour area in 10 mins or less, Camosun College, Hillside Shopping Mall, and the Royal Jubilee Hospital are all within minutes of this stunning rental. The University of Victoria is only 5 minutes away. Great shopping, small intimate dining establishments all dot this terrific inner city neighbourhood.
Getting around
I always recommend to my clients that they rent a car when visiting Victoria because they're so many areas to see outside of the central core that a car just makes traveling the area so much easier. However if renting a car is not in your plans the local Transit is literally a three-minute walk from the home. It's frequent because it's the university route so you rarely wait more than 5 or 6 minutes for a bus to take you downtown to the core in less than 10 minutes.
Car not needed
