“Victoria 70.3”

Reviewed 17 Jun 2016

The owner, Don, was great. The house was perfect for our group and reasonably priced for the time of year and during the Ironman 70.3 event which we all participated in. We would absolutely rent from Don again and request this property. There was plenty of space for the 6 of us and we made good use of the hot tub. I would recommend this property to my friends and family if they are planning a trip to Victoria with out hesitation.

Owner's reply: Glad you were happy with our place. Our proximity to great trails makes it a great place for athletic types that are active. Thanks - Don - Super Suites

“Mysty Woods Mansion - perfect property”

Reviewed 1 Apr 2016

8 students from Australia, plus myself, stayed in Mysty Woods for 2 weeks in January. We were completing a course at UVic, and the location of this residence was perfect for our requirements. The bus stops to the uni and to town were located on the road just outside the property, conveniently accessed via a gate in the back fence.The house was very comfortably furnished, with ample bathrooms and sitting areas for this large group. The kitchen was very well appointed, and the laundry allowed us to keep up with the heavy demands of a group of this size. The little touches like paper towels and detergents made day to day living very simple, and Don and his wife were very obliging with pickups and dropoffs, even with our large amounts of luggage. This is an amazing rental for a group.

Owner's reply: It was a pleasure to host you ladies from down under. Look forward to having you back next year again. Don & Anne

“Great place for family.”

We rented this house to accommodate 8 people attending our daughters wedding in Victoria. Awesome place with just enough bathrooms! Beautiful location. The hot tub was an great place to relax in the evening. It has all the must have's like full kitchen, internet, flat screen tv etc. Don was a super host and showed us around his home as soon as we arrived and was readily available if you needed anything. Highly recommended for large groups who want to spend some time together in beautiful Victoria

Owner's reply: Thanks guys, I love it when people enjoy my property. Regards - Don

“Excellent on all counts!”

Reviewed 5 Apr 2015

Myself and 3 others stayed at Mysty Woods for one week. We found it very comfortable, clean and well located. It took us about 16 min to get into downtown Victoria where we were meeting several times a day. We took the highway (easy easy drive to downtown) but there are non highway routes as well that are only minutes longer. Don (the owner) was very thoughtful right down to some excellent pasta sauce and a bottle of wine and some beers for our arrival :) The house is spacious with lots of room for everyone to spread out! The kitchen is great. The decor is dated but that did not bother us at all - the beds were very comfortable, ample parking for many cars, great quiet area but close to the highway, grocery shops and all other shops. Very close to Saanich Pool so excellent location if you are attending an event there. With no traffic it was a 6 min trip and with some traffic about 10-12 min trip to the pool. Price is great. Owner is honest and very helpful and hospitable. Highly suggest this as a place to stay if you are visiting Victoria :)

Owner's reply: Eileen: Pleasure to host you and your swimming group. Look forward to seeing you all again. Don - Super Suites

“Wonderful home!”

Reviewed 2 Jan 2015

My family (Children & Grandchildren) stayed here for this past Christmas and found this home to be exactly what we hoped it would be. Spacious, comfortable & user friendly. If you are looking for a vacation rental, it will be impossible to go wrong with this one!

Owner's reply: Lorne: It was a great pleasure to host your extended family over Christmas, some even from as far away as Norway. Look forward to seeing them all again. Don

Hello Don,
Thank you for your email. The four of us were extremely happy with the experience, and we would reply to each of your questions as follows:

1) The welcome and explanation for the property were very good. We were immediately made to feel relaxed and satisfied with our choice.

2) Everything exceeded our expectations, so we were more than satisfied with the rental.

3) My son said that the coffee maker was one of the best parts, but my wife and I thought that the comfortable bed was really appreciated. Our daughter thought that the hot tub was one of her highlights, since it helped with the pain in her knee.

4) It was difficult to find something that we disliked. However, the only comment that we would make is that we would have been happier if we could have put the recyclable cans, bottles and cardboard somewhere. We felt that we should have kept your property less cluttered!

5) The only change that I would request is that you provide an electric kettle. Unfortunately, like most British, we make a cup of tea with "boiling" water. Other than that, keep to the standards that you already have because we thought the service from yourself, and from your gardener was excellent.

6) You didn't do an exit checkout with us because we had to leave fairly early to say our "goodbye's" and to catch the plane. We were more worried that we left the house to your satisfaction.

We all felt that you did everything to ensure that all was to our satisfaction, and that you didn't impose upon us during our stay. Needless to say, we would highly recommend you for future rental accommodation.
Our very best regards,
Phil and Family.

Hi Don: We appreciated the homemade spaghetti and the wine when we got there.

Don and his Uncle and Aunt enjoyed the wide assortment of Keurig Coffee paks.

The house was very clean and you did a great job of meeting us there and explaining everything to us.

We like having access to the big back yard and Don grilled us a steak dinner one evening and we enjoyed eating outside.

The house was ideally situated and we enjoyed the access to downtown and Sidney. Not too far to drive to Nanaimo either which we liked.

All in all we had a great time at your place in Canada.

Hi Don, Thank you for letting our family gather at your beautiful home.

It was an awesome week we spent together.

Everything at the rental was wonderful.

Lots of room for everyone, no one ever felt cramped.

The back yard is where we spent most of the time and the location to everything was great.

We loved everything about it (maybe not the wasps! ) Ouch :( They really loved your place to.

We will certainly let our friends and family know about this rental and they to can enjoy your wonderful home.

Thank you once again.

Hello Don,

Thank you very much for the refund. I must admit I completely forgot about it. My mother was very happy to know that you found everything clean and in order. She enjoyed herself and hopes to come back soon, so she can sit outside, in the chair by the entrance.
Now, to answer your questions:

We were welcomed very warmly and were extremely grateful, that we didn't have to do no line ups to pick up a rental car. Finding pasta and wine, in the apartment, was very thoughtful. I don't think it would have been easy to find food so late at night.

The fact that, toilet paper, laundry detergent, Keurig coffee was provided free of charge, was greatly appreciated.

We loved the location of your property, surrounded by nature, peace and quiet. All the stores, shops, restaurants were nearby also. Big plus.

The checkout procedure was satisfactory and the lift to the airport was priceless.
Thank you Don.
