The Urban Suite is an absolutely superb apartment, comfortable and convenient for the harbour and downtown. We came here after being at the Empress and preferred this place. Many Thanks to Steve for his wonderful welcome and great hospitality. The only downside is, WE WILL BE Back!! Best Regards, Bob and Jean Adamson.

We were so pleased to find such a wonderful place for our week in Victoria. We have used the Vacation Rental By Owner (VRBO) web site to find apartments or villas both in the USA and in Europe. Our condo apartment, the Metro Suite, in Victoria rates #1, tied with a favorite apartment in Engleberg, Switzerland. We found our suite to be immaculate and very well equipped. The location was perfect as we just wanted to be downtown near the harbour and great restaurants. We did shop at the wonderful gourmet market for some meals we prepared and served on our deck balcony. The notebook of information was especially helpful in finding restaurants and places we wanted to visit. We would add Camille's to the restaurant list. Steve and Trish are the ultimate hosts. Due to both a plane and ferry delay, we arrived in Victoria at 11:45 p.m. Steve and Trish insisted on meeting us, even at that hour, to take us to our apartment where we found fresh fruit and other choices for snack or breakfast. Having a contact in case of questions or emergency was reassuring. We especially appreciated the use of the phone for calling back to the states due to a family illness. We also appreciate the fact that recycling is expected and made easy. We enjoyed having the harbour, Parliament, the BC Museum, Fisherman's wharf, a gourmet grocery, and wonderful restaurant choices within walking distance. Since we had been to some of the other attractions in the Victoria area, we chose not to rent a car this trip. We even took the city bus out to the University as we love exploring different university campuses. We were fortunate to be in Victoria during the Dragon Boat Festival which we enjoyed very much. Nice to compare this benefit to similar benefits in our home city. We hope to return to Victoria and will check the calendar to make sure this rental is available before we make flight reservations.

What a wonderful month's stay in the Metro Suite. Vacation rental pictures online rarely match reality but the Metro exceeded our expectations. It sparkles, bright, clean, nicely furnished with so many personal details to make the stay enjoyable. We so appreciated having juice, coffee milk and bread already in the fridge so we didn't have to shop as soon as we arrived. Our guests really appreciated a sofa bed mattress that is actually comfortable to sleep on. The location is superb - within easy walking distance of the inner harbor, shopping, restaurants, markets, etc. The added bonus is the superb hospitality of our hosts Trish and Steve. They are the kind of hosts you always hope to find - warm, helpful, caring, honest. See you next year!

We would like to highly recommend the Metro suite in the Astoria in DT Victoria. This condo has location, style, security and all the conveniences of home. Our hosts, Steve and Trish are wonderful people and communicate extremely well. The accommodations totally enhanced our two week stay on the island. Thanks again!

Trish and Steve: We had a wonderful time in Victoria and your Metro Suite was the perfect home base for all our adventures. Thank you so much for making us feel welcome and for your attention to detail. If we ever make it back up your way, we'll be staying at your apartment!
