A very nice property in a great location, just three blocks from the center of everything. All harbor and downtown attractions are in easy walking distance. (We're a mid-fifties couple who came to Victoria as tourists.) The unit was spotless on arrival. The hosts provided milk and fruit, bread and cereal to give us time to get to the grocery store. The kitchen had every gadget and utensil we looked for. In our week there, we heard no noise from the other units in the building-not even plumbing. You will hear some street noise in this property, but closing the windows eliminates most of it. If/when we go back to Victoria, we'll try to rent from these hosts again.

Wonderful apartment with a prime location near the Harbour, Museum and principal srteets in downtown Victoria.

Outstanding Apartment with a great location- Southside Suite

June 20, 2017

We have rented many homes and condos in the past, but there is just no comparison to be made with the level of service Melissa and Rod offer. From the moment you inquire about a rental until the day you leave to return home, Melissa and Rod are available for any needs you may have. From making sure there is coffee, cream and fruit upon our arrival to finding a temporary parking slot in a pinch, arranging for additional cable services during our stay as well as a cleaning service, they cheerfully offered their help no matter what we needed. We stayed twice in the Panorama Suite, each time for a month. The building is perfectly located and the suite is beautiful and immaculate. The view from the suite is spectacular. I would do business with Melissa and Rod any time and recommend them without hesitation.


‘City Life Suites, Panorama Suite”

Building is in very good condition, common areas kept very clean and tidy. Unit was well equipped for a short term stay. Furnishings and bedding very comfortable. Traffic noise can be an issue until you get used to it. Internet was great, TV availability could be expanded beyond basic cable plus Nelflix. Melissa & Rod were excellent to deal with, very accommodating and professional. Overall a pleasant way to enjoy downtown Victoria.

Clean & comfortable, excellent downtown location   Southsidw Suite

My wife and I recently spent six weeks in the Astoria Terrace Suite, and I would highly recommend it to anybody contemplating a visit to Victoria. Even before we got to Victoria, Rod and Melissa were extremely professional in their dealings with us. The queries we had about the condo were promptly answered by email and the entire booking process was simple and efficient. We got to Victoria quite late, but Rod was there waiting at the condo (we have had experiences where we had to wait for the owner/manager of the condo/apartment) and he showed us everything we needed to know. In addition, they provided a binder to which we could refer for help. And when we did need to reach them (for example, over a minor problem with cable access), Rod or Melissa always answered the phone, even after normal work hours. Before our arrival we let them know that my wife has allergies to scented products, and we asked that no scented products be used to clean the condo and to avoid room deodorizers. When we arrived we found that non-scented cleaning products had been provided for us. The condo has a fantastic terrace, which is a major reason why we chose it, but we did mention to Rod and Melissa that while there was ample patio furniture, there was no dining table and chairs that would have allowed for outdoor dining. We arrived at the condo late Thursday, and Saturday morning Rod delivered an outdoor dining table and four chairs ! Apart from the woderful manner in which we were treated by Rod and Melissa, the condo itself was perfect. The building is immaculate and the condo is as attractive as the photos depict. It is spacious (one night we had six for a sit down dinner) and well furnished. The location could not be better (a five minute walk to the Visitor Information Centre and the Inner Harbour, the Empress Hotel is visible from the terrace), with two supermarkets, restaurants, bakeries and liquor stores within easy walking distance. We took in three theatre performances while there and all three were within easy walking distance.

In short, the Terrace Suite is the best vacation rental we have ever stayed at.
