Victoria(n) Get-A-Way   Cityview Suite

June 19, 2016

We were so happy with the rental and highly recommend it. The apartment felt like a home-away-from-home. It is beautifully decorated with comfortable furniture and pillows and even a throw blanket. The television is of high quality and easy to use, which was important for watching championship basketball! The patio is wonderful with a chaise and other seating options. A real bonus to the experience. While the apartment is on the first floor, the side of the building where there apartment is has a "lower" floor so once in the apartment one is not on the first floor, meaning a stranger cannot look in at you in the apartment or on the patio. There is total privacy. The apartment is also way off the lobby so we heard absolutely no lobby noise. The kitchen is perfeclty equipped with pots, pans, spices, knives, plates etc so we were able to cook some delicious meals and heat up leftovers.There's a washer/dryer and two bathrooms with showers. A parking space if you have a car. The location is perfection! One block from the Empress Hotel and a few blocks from the Inner Harbour. We felt so lucky to be staying there. Melissa was so friendly and helpful during the process and during the check-in. We recommend it a million precent.

Outstanding Experience-Terrace Suite

June 17, 2016

This condo is in a great location in downtown Victoria, within walking distance to the Legislature, Museum and harbour. Th view from the condo is second to none, you could waste hours just looking out the windows. On top of all of this, this is one of the best equipped vacation renals we have stayed in and we have rented literally hundreds on 5 continents. Everything you could want is in the kitchen. There was also coffee, tea, spices, sugar, plus food to get you started for breakfasr your first day. The entire place is spotlessly clean, the beds are comfortable. The hosts were very efficient and wonderful to deal with. We were more then happy with this rental and would highly recommend it to others.

Panorama Suite-Spectacular View in Well Equipped Condo

June 10, 2016

We just spent seven great days in Victoria while enjoying this sweet condo. The downtown location makes walking a breeze to all the local attractions and restaurants with a Budget Car rental a half a block away(15% discount if you mention City Life Suites) and an assigned parking spot in the building. The condo is very clean and well maintained. The kitchen is well equipped and the utensils and pots/pans etc were spotless. Don't let the downtown location turn you away, I'm a noise freak but the 18th floor and excellent windows allow you to sleep in. We always worry about the availability of property management but Melissa met us at the door to explain all the particulars of the condo. We thoroughly enjoyed this condo and would recommend it.

Seven Great Days in Victoria, Cityview Suite

June 01, 2016

We took the airport shuttle and it let us off 1/2 block from the Astoria. Melissa met us and took us to the condo, helped set up the WIFI and showed us the apartment amenities. The unit was perfect for the three of us, right on the ground level from Farfield Road. The walk to the inner harbour is quite easy. We shopped at the market on Yates which can be walke to although we took a taxi. A car really is not necessary, we took the water taxi to Fisherman's Wharf (GREAT FUN), could walk to the BC museum/IMAX, caught the bus up Douglas to the shopping centre, took a city bus tour from the Empress, which we could see from our terrace, and could have taken a bus to Buchart Gardens from the Empress as well. Melissa had put milk and bread in the fridge as well as fresh fruit on the counter for us, which was a totally unexpected pleasure. We would certainly entertain the thought of returning to the Astoria in the future, we were delighted with the professionalism of Rod & Melissa in all aspects of planning the trip. We wish them well in their business.
