 When we walked in we were pleasantly surprised to see how beautifully, and tastefully this condo had been decorated. It has a special vibe that we really loved. It was very clean, tidy, well organized, and well appointed. You couldn't ask for much better location either. We loved all of the great restaurants all around, and everything was just minutes away. Walking along the harbour front was a great way to both start and end the day. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who really wants to have an authentic taste of old Victoria and enjoy the city. We absolutley loved it! And our hosts, Rod & Melissa were amazing from the moment they met us in front of the unit, until the day we moved out, they were very kind, organized & profession, and constantly went out of their way to help us in so many ways, completely unrelated to this rental. Thank you Rod & Melissa, we would rent from you again in a heart beat!

The right choice   Cosmopolitan Suite

posted on Sep 05, 2018

Victoria is a beautiful city filled with history. There are activities galore and food of every kind. If you like music you'll be in heaven and the people and always friendly. I can't remember falling in love with a city as I did with Victoria.

This very well furnished condo is in an outstanding location with a beautiful view of the city and mountains. The bus stops are nearby and if you buy the monthly bus pass you can go anywhere on the the southern part of the island with ease. Or, buy a day ticket for $5. However, the city itself is all within walking distance: grocery, restaurants, historical sites, shopping, the harbor, museums... It's a great experience.

Melissa and Ron were wonderful to work with and I may be calling them next year for a bigger place so that I can go back with girlfriends.

I could happily live there!

We loved our 11 night stay in this condo. Everything was perfect - the views are exactly as shown in the property photos. Melissa met us upon arrival and gave us all the information about the condo that we would need for our stay. Kitchen was stocked with coffee beans (& grinder), fruit, milk, whole grain bread & some butter & jellies so we didn't need to venture out to buy groceries until the next day. We had a minor leak under the kitchen sink and Rod was there within the hour to fix it. We loved our stay in this condo in Victoria - we even got to enjoy the Victoria Symphony Splash from our 19th floor balcony. We enjoyed it so much we will book it again in the future!

This property was AMAZING! Melissa and Rod were so organized and the unit had everything that we needed for a fantastic stay. The unit has beautiful harbor and city views and is within walking distance of everything.

Otherwise, there is nothing that I would change! Thank you for everything!

All major appliances worked perfectly ! Noise from within the building was not an issue. This was our first time in Victoria, "IMO", the location was beyond excellent. The harbour is 3 blocks, Irish Times Pub, 2 blocks, you can easily walk anywhere, the downtown is actually compact. The hockey rink is 4 blocks away, superb hockey , Junior A , WHL,......

Wow, Just Wow!!  Terrace Suite

posted on Apr 09, 2018

The Terrace Suite is an absolutely lovely condo in the best possible location in downtown Victoria. We researched properties for weeks last August before deciding on the Terrace Suite for our 6-week winter vacation, and what a wonderful choice we made. We loved being on the main floor (no elevator needed) and the condo's spacious private terrace was such an improvement over a typically tiny high rise balcony. The trees behind the terrace, which had bare branches when we arrived in February, gradually produced a profusion of beautiful pink and white magnolia blossoms. What a treat! All of downtown Victoria is just steps away, and Victoria's excellent public transit system provides access to every possible destination outside the downtown core. (There is an underground parking space included with the condo, but we never felt the need to rent a car.)

Over the years, my husband and I have rented a wide variety of vacation properties all along the east coast, from Maine to Florida, some through real estate agents, or rental agents, or, more recently, through VRBO. We have never found a property so fully and beautifully equipped nor a management team so thoughtful and responsive. A carefully prepared guidebook supplies tons of useful information about everything from the condo's appliances to the compost/trash/recycling process. All of the items I usually need to bring on vacation or buy (extra hangers, spices, food wrap, etc.) were generously supplied, and Melissa and Rod were readily available by phone when questions arose. For comfort and convenience in downtown Victoria, you really can't beat the Terrace Suite. But even if you are thinking of renting a smaller (or larger) apartment in downtown Victoria, I urge you to choose among the City Life Suites properties and you will not be disappointed. We have only been back home a few days, and we are already looking forward to our next visit

My husband and I stayed in the Market Loft suite in February 2018 and, as

 all that it promised in photos and more. It was turned over to us in sparkly
 clean condition and our evening arrival meant that we more than appreciated
 the bowl of fruit on the table and the breakfast supplies we discovered in
 the fridge.

 The suite is located in the renovated and repurposed Hudsons Bay Building on
 Douglas at Fisgard. Architecturally it is an interesting building and the
 renovation has incorporated the history in the interior design. Commercial
 spaces on the ground floor include the Victoria Public Market (a good place
 to pick up lunch or supper if you are in a hurry) and a popular yoga studio.
 The suite has tall floor to ceiling windows facing out into an indoor
 courtyard so its very quiet. The loft master bedroom and bathroom are

 The Market Loft is just steps away from Chinatown and close to all the
 downtown shops and restaurants. Two good grocery stores are nearby. And
 finally, Rod and Melissa are more than managers. They feel like hosts and
 they help to make any stay in Victoria more than enjoyable.

The Best Vacation Property We Have Ever Rented - Cosmopolitan Suite

posted on Feb 07, 2018

Our stay at the Cosmopolitan property was Amazing! The unit's VRBO photos were completely accurate and to our pleasure, the property was even better than the photos showed. Every item in the unit was in perfect condition and the entire place was literally 'Sparkling Clean'! It was also cheerful, bright and perfectly decorated. The bed was very comfortable and the kitchen fantastic, with absolutely every item necessary to prepare and serve any meal for four on matching dinnerware. Although the Cosmopolitan only sleeps two, it felt roomy and comfortable. The building( The Era) was well cared for with pleasant residents. This unit's location was perfect for exploring Victoria. We could easily walk from the Cosmopolitan throughout the Downtown area or easily find public transportation to the entire city and all its many delights. We felt completely safe walking to and from the many wonderful Downtown restaurants we discovered - even after dark! Finally, I would like to commend Melissa and Rod from CityLifeSuites for providing wonderfully thoughtful service. We would definitely rent the Cosmopolitan again or any unit on VRBO that was managed by CityLifeSuites. We loved our stay in Victoria and our VRBO home away from home! Theresa and Mike Madill

 My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our month in Victoria staying in in the City Vibe Suite. It's always a relief when the rental lives up to the promo pictures as City Vibe certainly does. In addition to being well appointed with everything that you need for a short or long stay, the suite is immaculately clean and well maintained. The kitchen/food prep area is fabulous and comes equipped with extras one doesn't usually find in vacation rentals - like roasting pans, a slow cooker, rice cooker, muffin tins and every utensil I needed to prepare and serve holiday meals (Special thanks for the rolling pin, Melissa!).

The location downtown, just a block from Chinatown, is ideal for easy access to shops, pubs and restaurants. There's plenty of great sightseeing and shopping that can be done on foot from this location. While we rented a car and made use of the building's secure underground parking, a vehicle probably wouldn't have been necessary. A wheeled shopping tote is thoughtfully provided for daily neighborhood marketing or ferrying groceries up from the garage.

Also excellent - the property managers, Rod and Melissa. The whole process from booking, check-in, communication before, during and after the stay was smooth, organized and low stress. We appreciate the personal yet completely professional customer service provided. Certainly we would not hesitate to stay at this or other City Life properties in future and feel confident in recommending them to anyone looking for a great vacation rental experience.

They even supplied a loaf of bread, milk, fruit, tea, coffee, spices, etc. A very nice touch that was very appreciated. It is very well equipped and the spacious patio was a real bonus. We walked everywhere we wanted to go and left the vehilcle parked in the free secure underground parking for the majority of our stay. Lots of wonderful restaurants, pubs and shopping within a very short distance. Close to the harbour! There was contruction going on in the next lot but it really did not bother us and the owners have no control over that. Lots to see and do in Victoria if you want to do it!

I recently spent six weeks in the Cosmopolitan Suite in downtown Victoria and could not be more delighted. The suite was very centrally located, with ready access to Victoria's attractions. I could walk to the Bay Centre in a couple of minutes, or wander down to the inner harbour in ten. Compact and efficient, the Cosmopolitan Suite has high end finishes and contempory decor. Most importantly, the suite was spotlessly clean and outfitted with every necessity for a comfortable stay. The building and underground parking were very secure and at no point did I ever hear a sound from another suite. As for the property managers Melissa and Rod- they should teach courses on how to run a successful business. From the moment I contacted them to enquire about availability to the time I checked out, they did everything possible to ensure my stay was as easy and pleasant as possible. Melissa greeted me like an old friend and walked me through the intricacies of the suite and building,then made sure I had their contact info in case I had any questions. This kind of responsiveness and attention to detail is a rare find inded. If you're looking for accommodation in Victoria, then City Life Suites is an incomparable choice. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

She also brought along some bread and fruit so that we had some snacks until we had time for grocery shopping. The condo is very comfortable and well decorated and we really enjoyed the views from the condo and balcony. Rod met us for check-out and helped us with our bags. It was a great trip and we will be back. Thanks to Rod & Melissa

One of the best experiences in our traveling years !  Zen Suite

posted on Jul 27, 2017

What a wonderful stay this was in the charming Zen Garden Suite ! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Melissa is so welcoming, helpful and informed about the area. She was a joy to deal with and felt she truly cared about us and our comfort. Zen Garden is meticulous, very well organized and easy to love. We walked pretty much everywhere in Victoria. We did rent a car and drove quite a bit up island and it was beautiful. We would stay here again in a heartbeat !

Excellent Apartment!  Southside Suite

posted on Jul 24, 2017

We stayed at the apartment for ten nights in July 2017. The location of the apartment is excellent; near to the inner Harbor and all that it has to offer. There are restaurants, shops, etc all within easy walking distance. The Bartholomew Pub is right next door and has an excellent lunch special Moday-Friday for $7. Rod and Melissa did an excellent job in insuring that everything was arranged before our arrival. Melissa met us at the apartment and showed us exactly how everything worked, and how to gain access to the building and parking garage with the security key. We highly recommend this apartment.

Excellent in every respect!  Zen Garden Suite

posted on Jul 18, 2017

We stayed at the Zen Suite for 10 days at the beginning of our move to Victoria, while we waited for the moving company to arrive with our stuff. It was perfect in every respect. Rod and Melissa are great to work with. Thety have the apartment stocked with everything you could possibly need and there is information about restaurants and local sights to visit. We loved the patio and the layout of the apartment. The kitchen was great and there was plenty of storage for our clothes. We appreciated the location, close to everything in downtown Victoria but not in the midst of hordes of tourists. There were several good restaurants within a couple of blocks and it is an easy walk to the harbour for a sunset stroll. One of the best rentals i have ever experienced. Stay here, you will not regret it!!

Exactly as advertised-Suthside Suite

posted on Jul 07, 2017

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.

‘City Life Suites, Panorama Suite”

posted on Jun 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.

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.

A Gem In Victoria-Terrace Suite

posted on Jun 14, 2017

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.

Beautiful Spacious Apartment In Excellent Location-Fusion Suite

posted on Jun 09, 2017

The apartment is in an excellent location just a few steps from the street leading into the Victoria Harbour and a 10 minute walk from the Bay Centre. Rod & Melissa were great with communication before the trip and met me at the apartment to give a tour, go over guidelines, and answer any questions. They also set up the apartment with essentials and cooking supplies to get me going. Much appreciated ! The apartment is quite large with a spacious living area, a balcony with table and chairs for relaxing outside, a comfy bed with lots of closet space in the bedroom, and a bathroom with a nice bathtub/shower. The place would be perfect for couples or a small family. There tons of restaurants and bars within steps from the apartment and also a liquor store attached to the building. I would definitely recommend this place for anyone looking to stay in Victoria.

“Wonderful Experience”- Zen Garden Suite

posted on Jun 05, 2017

Three adults stayed in the Zen Gaeden Suite and it was wonderful. The condo is well located, well equipped and certainly well maintained. The queen bed was very comfortable as was the pull out couch.The pull out was memory foam, therefore no spring jabbing you in the back. What was especially nice was the starter supplies which included bread, milk, fruit and of course, coffee and tea. That tied us over until we went grocery shopping the next day. All in all a wonderful experience and we would certainly recommend this unit.

Wonderful home for a full month ! D & D   City View Suite

posted on May 02, 2017

We spent the full month of March, 2017 in the City View suite. The condo suited us in every way. It was spacious, spotless, equipped with everything we needed and had so many extra touches. We cooked a lot and felt right at home in the kitchen. It had excellent quality cookware, dishes, and all the gadgets you would need for food prep. The light from the floor to ceiling windows made the suite cheery on the most grey, dreary March days. Although there is some city noise associated with the downtown location, it is worth it to be within walking distance of so many great places. The Astoria building is quiet, classy and well maintained and Rod & Melissa were super hosts. Couldn't ask for better ! We have stayed at a number of locations in Victoria over the years, and the City View suite with Rod & Melissa as hosts win first prize.

This one bedroom plus den condo in downtown Victoria was a wonderful place to stay. The location was within walking distance of all the downtown shops and restaurants. The condo itself was nicely furnished and well equipped. The fact that some of the basic kitchen staples were provided was much appreciated.

Southside Suite-December 2016-Narch 2017

posted on Apr 05, 2017

Our four month stay at the Southside condo was excellent. As it was such a lengthy stay it was important that we were comfortable-and we were. We enjoyed a very well equipped kitchen and comfortable bed. The views were lovely of the mountain tops, Juan de Fuca Straight and the well lit up legislative buildings. Everything is within walking distance. The attention we received from Rod & Melissa was above reproach. They made us feel most welcome. This is the second time we have dealt with this dynamic duo. We were once again more then pleased with their attentiveness and care. The box of chocolates on the counter was yummy and short lived. Thanks again Rod & Melissa for a great stay. We wish you well.

Thanks Melissa & Rod it was a pleasure meeting both of you during our stay. You do an excellent professional job of attending to both the property and your guests yet maintaining a personal touch that made us feel very comfortable and welcome.The very well outfitted kitchen met our needs most satisfactorily. This was very important since we were planning to stay three months. The walk score of this location is great ! Everything we could possibly need was within a 1.1km radius. Looking forward to our return next year.

posted on Mar 30, 2017

By now you read all the superlatives to describe the Terrace Suite. The place is exactly as shown in the photos, immaculate, extremely well equipped, very comfortable, excellent beds, and in a perfect location. The added bonus was the property managers, Rod & Melissa-professional, available(Rod met us the first night at midnight! to show us around the condo), most people would just leave a key somewhere ! They were concerned about how we were managing, asked if we felt the condo was lacking anything, and we had a feeling at all times that they were available to help make our stay perfect. A very considerate and generous touch , was supplying, fruit, bread, jam, milk etc. to have the first morning we were there. The condo location is right down town, walkable to all the main sights and near all your amenities. Overall rating 20/10.

Downtown Delight !

posted on Jan 30, 2017

This sky high Victoria condo is a downtown delight. Floor to ceiling windows make it cheerful and bright and the "mod", tasteful furniture is very comfortable. The place is spotlessly clean and has ample, uncluttered space for belngings. Full and quality kitchen needs are nicely met. The panoramic view is so entertaining and pretty. The lit up cathedral at night is particularly enchanting and lovely. Walk to everythimg in minutes...cafes, galleries, movies, museums, music, parks, restaurants, shops and more! From bookings to greetings to goodbyes, Melissa and Rod are hosts with the most! City Life Suites is definitely a sweet way to go.

Best experience as a customer I have ever had   Vibe Suite

posted on Dec 28, 2016

I think it will be very hard to beat the level of quality that Melissa & Rod offer when doing business with you. From the moment you book , their communication are prompt, clear, very helpful. The apartment I stayed in was very beautiful and nicely located in downtown Victoria. Very clean, with everthing I could need and more. The building had a high level of safety, and covered parking. Melissa even had the most delicate thought to bring a bit of food because she knew I had been traveling for a long time, and it was the end of the day. Melissa and Rod are extremely professional, think of everything before you ask for it, and if you ask for something, they will help you the best they can. It is as if you are dealing with friends. I would do business with them again with my eyes closed, and I highly recommend them.

“Two month stay”- Harmony Suite

We fell in love with Victoria and #405

posted on Dec 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!

Panorama Suite

posted on Nov 28, 2016

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.

Doesn’t Get Better Than This

posted on Nov 19, 2016

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!

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?

Location is perfect with the city core just a short walk. I stayed for 2.5 weeks. Even more perfect for a bachelor, a pub across the street. To much beer in the evening up for a nap, go down for a late evening beer PERFECT. Apartment well equipped for everything you need for cooking, not for me but for those who like that. Pub noise no problem you are so polite in Canada that you go home 11:00 pm in the night not like my country Norway where you stay out to 3:00am in the morning. Rod & Melissa are great hosts. It's not if, but when I will arrive back to Victoria ad this apartment.

The apartment turned out to be quite a gem. It had everything you could ask for. The beds were comfortable. The living area was roomy. The kithcen had everything we needed. The deck was awesome. The weather was great during our visit so we got much use out of the deck. As for the location of the apartment, it was absolutely situated in the middle of all our interests. Everything we wanted to do was within walking distance(the bus to Butchart Gardens was a short walk). It made it easy for us to explore the area to find the best shops and restaurants, of which there are plenty to choose from. Rod & Melissa wwere very helpful. Rod showed us around the facility, and told us were to get groceries and other nearby things to do. We knew if we had any issues (we did not) they would be there for us. In summary, a beautiful location in a beautiful city. We will definitely be back!

Fabulous Aprtment with Stunning Views-Panorama Suite

posted on Aug 27, 2016

We have rented dozens of properties over the years. The Panorama Suite is amongst the best for many reasons. It would be great for two couples sharing. The apartment is exceptionally clean and very well fitted out with everything you could imagine needing. It had a fully stocked kitchen and I'm sure there's a tool or gadget for every occasion. The downtown location puts everything in easy walking distance, There's even a good wine shop around the corner. The view is stunning over the sound and to the snow capped mountains. It's fun to ease over a leisurely sunny morning breakfast on the balcony while watching the seaplanes come and go from the harbour. The hosts, Melissa and Rod, wer efficient and very helpful. I would recommend them and the apartment to anyone visiting the area.

The apartment is well equipped but a dining table on the terrace would be a nice addition. Rod & Melissa were very professional and provided exemplary assistance in all steps involved.

What a wonderful week! Rod & Melissa are so nice to work with! The apartment is perfect! So clean, and it has everything you need. The location is outstanding! We could walk everywhere we neded to go, then we rode bicycles the rest of the time! The bed is so comfortable, and it is nice to have the fan that is provided. There are so many small touches, such as the shopping cart to walk to the market. We felt like quite the urban dwellers! The shower has great water pressure, something I always love since we don't have that at home. We were at the bike trail or at the ocean within a ten minute bike ride! We loved walking to the harbor, which was just a block away! Can't say enough about this great apartment! Thank you Rod & Melissa!

We have stayed in many VRBOs nationally and internationally and the Panorama Suite was the very best. It was impeccably clean with absolutely every detail accounted for. Of course the view is beyond spectacular but the condo itself is so comfortable and well organized it made for a seamless-and extremely enjoyable-vacation. Melissa and Rod of City Life Suites (which handles all rentals) were organized, thorough, friendly and efficient. Finally, the location is unbeatable. Steps to amazing restaurants and the inner harbour, as well as a stone's throw away from the beauty of Beacon Hill Park. No need to rent a car. This vacation rental is a true gem.

Lovely condo! Extremely clean and had everything you might need for your short term stay. Other than some food items we didn't have to buy a thing. Very quiet. Very secure. Parked the car and pretty much walked everywhere. Great location! Just a couple of things we had issues with. No black out drapery in the bedroom and the sun comes up around 5am. The a/c unit is quiet noisy when it turns on and the panel lit up the room somewhat. However, we still give this vacation rental a 5*. Melissa is wonderful! She goes the extra mile including providing english muffins, jam, butter, coffee, milk and fruit on arrival. Lots of toiletries. Definitely would stay here again!

This was our third year spending two weeks in the Horizon Suite and we have already reserved again for next year-we love it there! This place is absolutely the gold standard for a vacation rental. The spectacular view of the harbor from the 19th floor never loses it's attraction, and the apartment is attractively firnished with just about everything we could possibly want. Melissa and Rod even stocked the place with some bread and milk to get us started off, as well as a fruit basket with some plums apples and bananas. There is a car agency on the next block and a grocery store a fifteen minute walk away. We spent alot of time just strolling the harbor and city center. Melissa & Rod are very welcoming and told us to call if we needed anything. Highly recommended.
