We stayed at the Harmony Suite for two months as we relocated to Victoria. The location at the edge of downtown was perfect. The suite was very comfortable, well equipped and very well manged. Thank you Melissa and Rod!

“Two month stay”- Harmony Suite

December 07, 2016

We spent a month at Mermaid Wharf, #405 and it was just the right size for the two of us. Very cozy! The suite was equipped with everything-and then some-that we could have wanted and while we did go out for some breakfasts and dinners, had most of our meals at home, gazing at the paddlers, rowers and tugboats in the harbour. The suite is so handy to everything in Victoria and while we did have a car for some time, walked around a lot on the trails and downtown. Our only slight complaint- and nothing Rod & Melissa can control-is the noise on 3 nights each week from the Canoe Club next door. But it mainly shuts down at 12:00 and really didn't keep us up once we got used to it. Rod & Melissa were very helpful with everything. Will certainly be back!

We fell in love with Victoria and #405

Tis 2/bd/2ba with den was a palace for just the two of us (senior couple). It sits just above the harbor, with a drop dead breath-taking view of Parliament and Victoria's harbors (upper & inner). We are also so grateful to the owners of this unit, who have meticulously decorated the Panorama suite with such care and attention to details. We were never left wanting or needing anything during our stay. Accomodation: stellar! Altho' parking was included, we didn't need to rent a car as eveerythin was within walking distance-eatery, shopping, entertainment. We felt like Victoria residents. The current managers Melissa & Rod are so awesome! It's as if the previous manages Trish and Steve never left. Of all the City Life rentals this has become our favorite. We left with such heavy hearts, but can't wait to return. This time we plan to book two months or more- particularly if it is with the Panorama. Love City Life Suites!!! Wish there were additional City Life Suites in other areas of Canada that we visit.

Panorama Suite

Rod & Melissa were simply consumate hosts, and made it their duty to ensure our perfect stay. We couldn't have been happier. The Astoria Terrace Suite is not the most luxurious vacation rental in that neck of the woods, but has every convenience, no matter how small, to make life perfect-even little key hooks near the door to hang those pesky, never-be-without-one fobs. My husband and I continually commented on how well run the Terrace Suite was, how secure and happy we felt about our stay there, and what a genuine pleasire it was to know Melissa & Rod were discreetly and ever so promptly available to us. Melissa is downright charming and they're both superb professional property managers who make complicated logistics smooth and simple. We have since stayed in another vacation rental nearby, higher end(fireplace, granite countertops and wall ovens) but with so many annoying shortcomings, it is a struggle to appreciate it.(What's the point of installing blackout curtains if the curtains don't slide on the rod ?) So if you want to be happy for the whole of your stay, my advice is to opt for a property that Melissa & Rod manage. A happy experince, guaranteed!

Doesn’t Get Better Than This

My wife and I could not be more pleased with our two month stay at the Herald St. apartment. Although small the apartment itself was clean and thoughtfully appointed with modern new furnishings that were efficient without being excessive. Close attention had been given to supplying the kitchen with everything needed to prepare three meals a day if required, including start up supplies. Best of all was management, Rod & Melissa met us on arrival and made themselves available to respond to queries, however minor, on how things worked. Finally, the central location allowed us to try the best restaurants, take in some theatre and see the sights almost entirely on foot. What could be better?
