The Metro Suite - We Loved It
My husband and I stayed in the Metro Suite for a week this last May and
loved it! Steve and Trish were incredibly friendly and accomodating, and
helpful in finding grocery stores, great restaurants, you name it.
The suite was exactly as we had expected from the website, but we were
pleasantly surprised to discover how well-stocked the kitchen was. They even
had a splatter-guard for us to use when frying bacon!
Not having ever vacationed in Victoria, we weren't really sure about the
city layout, but realized when we got to our suite that we could walk to
pretty much everywhere we wanted to go (there's so much to do, see, eat!) I
would definitely recommend Steve and Trish's Metro Suite to anyone staying
in the Victoria area.

Metro Suite - An Amazing Place To Stay
The Metro Suite is an amazing place to stay. It is a nice as it looks on the website. I stayed
10 days and it truly felt like home during that time. I would highly
Urban Suite - We Just Loved It
My husband and I stayed at the Urban suite this Summer, from July 3-16 2011
How can we sum this up for anyone planning on booking with City Life Suites.
Do not waste in time in looking anywhere else!! This is the place for home
away from home. I will list the amazing benefits of the suites.
1) Steve and Trish are amazing at making you feel so at home and welcome,
meeting with you when you arrive and giving you a walk thru of the unit
2) They also provide you with a start up kit of fresh fruit,milk and bread
etc to enjoy upon your arrival!! What a wonderful welcome, and needed after
a long journey
3) They provide everything you could possibly need in the unit,and it is so
comfortable and decorated and so well appointed
4) You do not have to go out and buy all the usual essentials. It is
provided for you in the condo, so much care and thought went into making
their guests have a stress free vacation
5)Location, location, location...right in the heart of Victoria, and walking
distance to most of the attractions. Made this unit and building a dream to
get around town
6) I have listed this again..Steve and Trish. From the first contact with
them through e-mail they answered all our questions immediately, yes I mean
immediately!! We are from Ontario, and even with the time difference they
got back to us at once. I even e-mailed them to ask about accommodation in
Tofino. Steve had already contacted hotels to find out their availability
and contacted us to let us know that where to book!!! Again made it all
stress free. I would recommend City Life Suites to anyone looking for a
fabulous stress free vacation. In light of some services out there today,
Steve and Trish go above and beyond. We just loved it

"Perfect in every way"
I have stayed in a lot of vacation rentals over the years and I'd rate this one 10 out of 10. The Urban Suite's location is superb, right in the middle of Victoria, steps to the harbor, restaurants, shops and a lovely park. Yet it's in a pleasant neighborhood of condo buildings and hotels, so quieter than you'd expect a downtown location to be and felt completely safe. It was immaculately clean and furnished comfortably and stylishly with everything you could possibly need and lots of things you don't really need but were very nice to have. My landlords Steve and Trish were incredibly welcoming and hospitable, checking before I arrived to see if there was anything special I needed. There was fruit, milk, bread, coffee, tea, cereal and lovely treats at arrival, so no need to rush out for supplies the first night. Everything was as advertised only more so! Steve and Trish had also left all kinds of info about things to do, etc and recommended a day trip in the Sooke Peninsula that was a delight. They are charming people and were available for info and service when needed but didn't hover, left me to enjoy myself and Victoria, a really beautiful city! I'd recommend this to singles or couples, just because it's too small for more than two people (well, maybe three if one is a very small child!)
My husband and I have travelled widely overseas and this was the first time
we had booked an apartment type accommodation. The location was excellent as
was the layout and attention to detail in the Metro Suite apartment.
It had a home away from home feel and Steve and Trish were very welcoming and made us feel like very special guests.
The apartment was very modern with all the mod cons
needed and some thoughtful and necessary extras thrown in. The location was
excellent and we were able to see and do all the sightseeing we wanted. We
would thoroughly recommend City Life Suites.
