Description of the Victoria vacation condo rental

Superb, central location in downtown Victoria, B.C. on beautiful Vancouver Island. Close to tourism attractions, shopping, great restaurants and pubs, libraries, museums and just two blocks away from the fabulous Inner Harbour.

Here's just one of the many positive comments we've received from our guests.

"We rent vacation homes and condos throughout North America, probably 4-5 each year, and this is one of the very best. You'll love it.
Kerry & Pam Dunn, Redlands, California

We have taken into consideration some of the hidden costs that might be overlooked by our incoming guests. Stocking your newly arrived-at rental with "basics" can really add up. For this reason, we supply our condos with lots of "extras" that many rentals do not offer, such as paper goods (enough toilet paper and paper towels for the duration of your stay), trash bags, foil, plastic wrap, hand soaps, laundry softener and detergent, dish soap, a nice selection of herbs and spices, coffee,tea, and many other essential every-day items that you would normally need to purchase on your own.

We also provide the convenience and cost-savings of unlimited, free local and long-distance telephone calls anywhere in N. America, as well as voice mail, so you can keep in touch with friends and family while you are staying with us. In addition, all of our apartments provide free wireless internet access, so you can surf the net and check your Email accounts while you're away from home.

Our City Life Suites "Metro" apartment is in the very best central downtown location in Victoria and it comes loaded with amenities.

Full gourmet kitchen, en-suite laundry, soaker bathtub/shower, 2 TV's, DVD, stereo, pull out sofa bed for extra guests, phone, internet, free parking and access to free car wash bay.

Fully self-catering apartment in downtown Victoria BC with all the comforts and conveniences you need to make your stay totally enjoyable.

The apartment is strictly non-smoking and has never been smoked in, so it is always fresh and clean

Ideal accommodation!

Three of us stayed in the Metro Suite for a week and it was the perfect spot to come home to. Tasteful decor, comfortable beds, convenient in-suite laundry and secure parking all contributed to making the stay so enjoyable. The owners provided many thoughtful details, from outfitting the kitchen with every possible amenity, to stocking the fridge with "starter" groceries and a welcome bowl of fruit. They were also very helpful with suggestions on restaurants and tour companies. The location couldn't be better for seeing the sites....close to downtown, the inner harbour and Beacon Hill Park. We would be happy to book here in the future.

Steve or Trish Young

Owner's reply:

Thanks so much Louise, it was a joy having you all as guests in our Metro Suite. You are welcome to return at any time and we're glad you found everything you needed in the apartment and that it lived up to your expectations.
Thanks again, come back soon:-)

I will list the amazing benefits of the suites. 1) Steve and Trish are amazing at making you feel so at home and welcome, meeting with you when you arrive and giving you a walk thru of the unit 2) They also provide you with a start up kit of fresh fruit,milk and bread etc to enjoy upon your arrival!! What a wonderful welcome, and much needed after a long journey 3) They provide everything you could possibly need in the unit,and it is so comfortable and decorated and so well appointed 4) You do not have to go out and buy all the usual essentials.

Wonderful Condo

Thank you Steve & Trish for a great experience! The condo has everything you could possibly need. The bed is so comfortable and the condo is so clean & nicely decorated. It is in a great location. We walked to just about everything. It is close to the water, shopping, museums, sight seeing & restaurants...just about anywhere you would like to go. Steve & Trish picked us up from the ferry terminal & took us back on the day of our departure. They left us fresh fruit, milk, bottled water, coffee, tea, sugar....the basic stuff. It was wonderful! We even had Hershey Kisses by the bed! Now that's 5-Star service!!! They definitely go the extra mile. We would definitely rent from them again. They even gave us suggestions on things to do and places to eat (which they were right on). We went whale watching, salmon fishing, toured the Gardens, Royal Museum, Fisherman's Wharf, Bird of Prey..there are so many things to do and see. Thanks again Steve & Trish! Linda & David

"Perfect in every way"
I have stayed in a lot of vacation rentals over the years and I'd rate this one 10 out of 10. The Urban Suite's location is superb, right in the middle of Victoria, steps to the harbor, restaurants, shops and a lovely park. Yet it's in a pleasant neighborhood of condo buildings and hotels, so quieter than you'd expect a downtown location to be and felt completely safe. It was immaculately clean and furnished comfortably and stylishly with everything you could possibly need and lots of things you don't really need but were very nice to have. My landlords Steve and Trish were incredibly welcoming and hospitable, checking before I arrived to see if there was anything special I needed. There was fruit, milk, bread, coffee, tea, cereal and lovely treats at arrival, so no need to rush out for supplies the first night. Everything was as advertised only more so! Steve and Trish had also left all kinds of info about things to do, etc and recommended a day trip in the Sooke Peninsula that was a delight. They are charming people and were available for info and service when needed but didn't hover, left me to enjoy myself and Victoria, a really beautiful city! I'd recommend this to singles or couples, just because it's too small for more than two people (well, maybe three if one is a very small child!)

The Metro Suite - We Loved It
My husband and I stayed in the Metro Suite for a week this last May and
loved it! Steve and Trish were incredibly friendly and accomodating, and
helpful in finding grocery stores, great restaurants, you name it.

The suite was exactly as we had expected from the pictures, but we were
pleasantly surprised to discover how well-stocked the kitchen was. They even
had a splatter-guard for us to use when frying bacon!

Not having ever vacationed in Victoria, we weren't really sure about the
city layout, but realized when we got to our suite that we could walk to
pretty much everywhere we wanted to go (there's so much to do, see, eat!) I
would definitely recommend Steve and Trish's Metro Suite to anyone staying
in the Victoria area.

It Was Wonderful
Thanks for meeting us at the condo and taking us thru the details of bldg security, etc. We also appreciated the food that was already in the condo! Great! You were more than helpful and made the visit very easy and restful. The condo is wonderful and cozy. It was nice to leave the car in the garage and walk everywhere!
I have recommeded your condo to my sister and she and her husband plan to contact you later this year/early next year about a week of summer 2012!
Again, thanks. We will be your way again someday soon and will contact you as our first priority!

" Best Vacation accommodation Ever"

I can't say enough good things about City Life Suites. The apartment is lovely--beautifully furnished and thoughtfully equipped with everything one might need including enough "starter" food to last until a trip to the grocery store can be made. The location couldn't be better--right downtown and within walking distance of most activities. Steve, our host, was attentive to all our needs and went out of his way to make us welcome and insure a pleasant stay. My only regret is that we did not have a chance to meet Trish who, Steve says, is the genius behind all the delightful little details in the apartment. We hope to return again someday.

You can stop looking and book your Victoria stay here. I consider myself a fairly seasoned traveler and have never stayed anywhere better. Incredible hosts - they even had milk and bread in the refrigerator and fresh fruit on the table when we arrived. I asked about wireless internet for my itouch and they installed it for us! Full size washer/dryer right in condo was great. Exercise room/ pool table room with entertainment area on first floor was free to access. Very safe/secure and perfect "home base" location. City Bus to Butchart Gardens across the street (the bus system is amazing and inexpensive). Thank you Steve and Trish for a dream vacation.

We visited Victoria and stayed in this property. It was wonderful! The location couldn't get any better. We were able to walk all over the city. The condo was immaculate and decorated very nicely. We would highly recommend this property. The owners take the extra steps to make the stay memorable!

We very much enjoyed the time we spent at City Life Suites. Steve and Trish Young (owners) did an excellent job of providing us with a well equipped full kitchen. The apartment was very clean which was important to us and they provided excellent recommendations on grocery shopping, restaurants and attractions in the area. We would definitely recommend this condo to others seeking vacation rentals in Victoria. We rarely got in our car. Everything we wanted to see was walking distance from the suite. When you walk, you don't have to worry about parking. We did lots of walking, used the gym that was available for guests, ate in the suite and at local restauraants, Browns Social House, Spaghetti Factory, Rick's Grill, Earls, etc. They were all great.
Von & Mo, Calgary, Alberta, Canada

Best accommodation we ever rented-spotless,very well decorated, bright and very well equipped kitchen. Steve/Trish,the owners are the amazing host and hostess, they welcome you personally and make your vacation an absolute comfort and enjoyable. Upon your arrival, they even stock some groceries to get you started and 16 different spices on the counter for your use during your stay. They really take pride and joy in how they run the place. I was absolutely impressed. excellent value for your money. The building is very well maintained, gym is very clean and adequate which is a real bonus. The location is very central in the upscale part of downtown. One can walk everywhere: library,shopping,groceries,museum,theaters,airport shuttle terminal,water front,Chinatown etc. Renting a car is not necessary. But should you need one, rental companies are just within the walking distance.Renting with Budget through Steve,you can get 15% off. It was an awesome vacation for one month !!!!!! I will not hesitate to recommend the place to my friends and relatives.

This is just a lovely spot. Your are a 5 minute walk from the harbour or down town, 5 minute walk to the museum and a ten minute walk to the gorgeous park at Signal Hill. The apartment was clean and has everything you'd want in your own home for 2 people. The weather wasn't great for us but it didn't slow us down on our walking/touring around. Park you car in the secure parking and enjoy. Security in the building is second to none. Umbrellas are included!

We just got back from New Orleans where we stayed in an apartment that had absolutely rave reviews.  Great location in the French Quarter, but I can tell you that it did not hold a candle to your rental.  So, just a quick note to say again how much we appreciated:
- Your service
- The wonderful apartment
- Its location
- The fact that it was spotless
PS 
 Hope you have been able to enjoy some of the Winter Olympics in person!
Thanks again

The Metro Suite is a beautiful, secure condo in a great location in downtown Victoria. I have stayed in several condos in the same area but none as nice, as comfortable, nor as well equipped. The owners are charming and were extremely helpful and hospitable. They have provided every amenity you could possibly imagine. I just spent a month in this lovely condo and look forward to another stay in the future.

We arrived later than planned but Steve was there to meet us off the bus and show us to the Metro Suite apartment. We were so grateful for the goodies, bread, milk, butter, tea etc and as our bags had not arrived with us the toiletries were most welcome. The apartment far exceeded our expectations and was equipped to a high standard. TV, DVD player, stereo and internet access with free local calls really helped to make us feel "home". The laundry system was great too so no need to bring so many clothes next time!! Trish and Steve went out of their way to make our stay comfortable and pleasant. Their hospitality & frindliness is genuine. Thanks Trish & Steve you helped to make our holiday truly memorable. All the best for the future Chris & Alan.

We found your suite to be very comfortaable and your attention to detail very well done as well as friendly helpfulness. Our 2 month visit with your town was great for us in many ways. We were pleased with security, parking and building ammenities. We wish you well

August 15, 08

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!

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!

"The Metro Suite has to be one of the cleanest most well equiped units we've ever stayed in. Very close to the harbour, quiet and close to many attractions. We made many walking tours to Beacon Hill Park and enjoyed the wild life immensely.
Thanks so much Steve and Trish. We are planning for next year already.

We really enjoyed our stay in BC, especially because the condo was so perfect! It is modern, clean, centrally located to everything including transportation and our hosts Trish & Steve were so helpful! We would highly recommend City Life Suites to everyone! We hope to visit again one day. Thanks for making it a home away from home and adding so many extra touches!

November 22/07

We have just completed a three-week stay in this suite which is very well equipped and furnished and the location in downtown Victoria could not be better. Lots of good restaurants and shopping within short walking distances. The high-speed internet is fast and reliable. The building is quiet and we encountered no noise in the hallways. There were no negative surprises. In fact, we had a wonderful, positive experience.

Steve and Trish are very attentive, helpful owner/landlords.

Alan & Maureen Bowbyes, Toronto, Ontario

October 25/07

The quality of the apartment was excellent, very well equiped and furnished to a high standard. Trish and Steve achieve a 'home from home' environment and their personal attention to detail and information as well as their natuaral hospitality made our stay in Victoria the more enjoyable.

Mark Grimwood, London UK

October 01/07

What a great place. The Metro Suite was perfect for a week's stay with my family of four.

The central location means you do not need a car; and being in modern, fully furnished apartment (as opposed to a cramped hotel room) adds up to a very relaxing trip.

Thanks Steve & Trish!

Frank Purcell, Portland, OR

September 29/07

Many thanks to Trish and Steve for their friendly and helpful hospitality. This apartment is beautiful! 5 Stars. You have not missed a single detail - from the well equipped kitchen to the extensive book of information on everything from the condo complex, security system to all the tips on where to eat, attractions to see and the personal touches in the bathroom.

You won't find a better location in Victoria - walking distance to all the main sightseeing highlights of beautiful Victoria and the inner harbour.

We will visit again for sure. I recommend this beautiful condo to anyone visiting Victoria. Thanks and see you again - Jessie Albanese & Mary Blizzard.

Thanks Steve and Trish for a wonderful stay!!! My only complaint: I wish I had found you online sooner :) The beautiful suite had everything that I needed and more, with a warm welcome and goodbye from both of you and lots of little thoughtful touches in between. I know that I will be travelling to the city again for business and for pleasure - I will be back!

Tara, Vancouver, BC

September 10/07

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here in Victoria. This apartment was like home to us and Steve and Trish were very welcoming and helpful. The location is fantastic and you can easily walk everywhere to see the sights during the day and to all the local restaurants and bars in the evening, if you don't want to cook in the beautiful well equipped kitchen. I would recommend this apartment to all visitors to Victoria either on holiday or business. try it and see for yourself. We were very impressed and would definately go back there next time we visit.

Thanks again Steve & Trish,

We really enjoyed our stay in the Young's condo while in Victoria celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. The condo was very nicely furnished and the hospitality extended to us by Steve and Trish was second to none. They pay attention to every detail and we are thankful we chose CitySuites over hotels in the area.

Steve & Trish were great hosts, which included kindly providing a few groceries for our late arrival. The apartment was well located downtown, was in excellent condition and was very clean. The apartment was modernly furnished with stainless steel appliances and unique furnishings. The building was extremely secure with an advanced security system. The free long distance calls were a nice inclusion. Try the coffee shop that is in the building (Cafe Mela.) It was very good.
Steve and Trish made our stay very enjoyable and we highly recommend this property to other customers
Neil & Caroline Copeland, Calgary, Alberta

August 8, 2007
To Trish and Steve our thanks for for you hospitality and kindness. The appartment was perfect for our needs and I would recomend it for anyone who is attending a conference in Victoria. As for Victoria itself the iconic attractions are everyting they are touted to e but there is a depth and beadth to Victoria that is worth discovering. The Maritime Museum, Mungo Martine House, The BC Museum and Beacon Hill park were the second level "finds" that made Victoria a first class conference and holiday. We happen to think the appartment, Trish and Steve were also standouts in their own way of our time in Victoria. Would like to do it all again one day.

Bob Stanley, Canberra, ACT, Australia

The apartment was absolutely ideal for our needs! It was extremely smart, well decorated and in a very convenient location. Steve and Trish made us extremely welcome and the attention to detail on what was provided was second to none. Many thanks to both of them for their efficiency but above all for their hospitality. We are happy to recommend this accommodation.

A huge part of our fantastic vacation in Victoria was Steve and Trish's condo. Besides the fantastic location, the condo was comfortable and we weren't missing anything. Thanks for your great hospitality!

I have stayed at both City Life Suites now on two occasions for business travel. The suites are by far my favourite place to be while visiting Victoria. What could be better than coming home from a day of work than having all the comforts of home. I've hosted guests for dinner in the cozy living room, enjoyed morning breakfasts on the patio, and made tea in the kitchen late at night. Everything you need is there - I woke up one morning to rain (and no raincoat) and found umbrellas in the closet! You just can't get that level of comfort - or the incredible hospitality and support that Trish and Steve offer - from a hotel. I highly recommend these suites for business travellers - will make your stay feel like a vacation!
Carol Maas, Kitchener, Ontario

July 2007


We had an excellent experience staying at the Urban Suite. It provides a far superior alternative to a generic hotel room. Our exceptional hosts, Trish and Steve keep an immaculate place and their thoughtfulness is evident in the smallest details such as the umbrellas for inclement weather, the chocolates on the pillow, the cherries from their very own tree! For short or long term stays - the suite has it all. The location is excellent, just 5 mins from Government Street and the Empress Hotel. Beacon Hill Park is also a pleasant stroll away. I have no hesitation in recommending the Urban Suite to any and all discerning travellers.

We found Steve and Trish to be absolutely wonderful hosts. Their apartment was nicely furnished, clean and had all the amenities you would need. The location is just perfect for touring Victoria as it is only 2 blocks from the harbour, B.C. Legislature buildings and the Royal Museum. We would immediately recommend this suite to anyone considering it.

We truly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful luxury apartment.Clean, modern and met all of our needs.
Close to all ammenities.... the Inner Harbour, Convention Centre, shops and great dining places. A little noisy with the bus traffic and inner city traffic. However, enjoyed whale watching, and smelling the beautiful flowers. A must do again experience.

Doreen and I did not want to leave! The decor and attention to detail made our stay memorable. The building is quiet with fast elevator service. The downtown location is great.
Trish and Steve are very accomodating.
Highly recommended!

Trish and Steve are the ultimate hosts! They have thought of every little detail a guest may require away from home. The suite was most comfortable and enjoyable and it exceeded my expectatiions. The location is also superb as it is within walking distance of the center of town with all the shops and restaurants and entertainment. Steve and Trish went out of their way to make my stay not only totally comfortable but successful and productive as I was there on a business mission.
Highly recommended facility!

Our stay for the month of January in Steve and Trish's lovely accomodations and all the little extras provided were very much appreciated. The proximity of this condo to downtown and all the local interests couldn't be better. With our thanks!

We have just returned from a wonderful week in Victoria at the very best located accommodation ever!!! Quiet, beautifully decorated, well equipped and very affordable, within walking distance of all the touristy stuff, lots of restaurants, and great shopping. We will definitely stay here again but for a much longer visit. Many thanks to Trish & Steve for their warm welcome, breakfast supplies, and luggage help. We have new friends now in Victoria!!!

“Our hosts were wonderful (they even provided basic "fixin's" for breakfast). Added benefits were free calls (even to the US) and the fact that many buses (we used all local transportation) stop just outside the door of the complex.”

“We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful Victoria condo. It is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need. The layout was extremely comfortable for the two of us, and the unit is impeccably furnished. The location was ideal--a 5-minute walk from the harbour. The best part was the hosts' enthusiastic welcome upon our arrival and their interest in seeing that we had everything we needed. Their suggestions for places to visit and things to do were perfect. We rent vacation homes and condos throughout North America, probably 4-5 each year, and this is one of the very best. You'll love it.”

“We are so glad we chose this suite! This apartment is so clean and organized. Also I really liked your service, ex. snacks for arrival and easy to contact you. It was very nice to have fruits when we arrive, and wherever I have a problem, I can always phone and reach you. That was very helpful. Again, I'm very glad to stay here and meet you. If I come back to Victoria again I will stay here again. Thank you very much!!”

“The apartment is so convenient to everything, attractions, shopping, restaurants, the beautiful inner harbour, Beacon Hill Park and the B.C. Museum....we just loved it. Everything we needed was provided and the apartment was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The owners were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable and helped us with information about places to go and things to do in Victoria. We would definitely stay here again. Thanks for one of the most enjoyable stays we've ever had, anywhere!”

“Having stayed at this tranquil retreat while on our honeymoon, we can easily attest to this lovely condo's ability to relax even the most uptight folk. Arriving in Vic straight from the wedding, our jaws dropped at both the crisp & clean modern decor and the owner's vast attention to detail. Scented soaps, a coffee grinder, flat screen TV's, a rice cooker, lush towels, bamboo floors and even candles to help jumpstart our romantic seafood dinners on the patio. We were also thrilled to find such an accommodating condo that was close enough to the inner harbour in case we wanted to hit the tourist attractions and yet still secluded enough to slip away from the crowds. Close to great parks, Market square, the organic grocery on Yates, movie theaters, the Strathcona, and Pescatores. We simply cannot say enough --- five stars! We'll be back for another sleek getaway soon!”

“It was a pleasure to stay here. Having just moved here from Toronto, this was a perfect introduction to downtown living in Victoria before moving into my new home. The location was perfect. Everything is within walking distance! The suite is beautiful, very comfortable, safe and clean. Loved the full kitchen and to be within walking distance of one of Victoria's famous organic food markets (Market on Yates) was a real treat! It was also lovely to walk downtown within minutes to take part in the tourist activities. I must thank you so very much for the great service you provided. I really enjoyed my stay!
Thank you again.”
