“Cozy, Comfortable and Convenient”
Reviewed May 17, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

A very nice house in a beautiful and quiet neighborhood. A great location only a few blocks from a huge park with a waterfront paved walking trail. Walk through this historic area to downtown in 15 to 20 minutes or to a grocery store and Starbucks only 10 minutes away. The cherry trees and tulips were in bloom during our stay. Awesome!! Really enjoyed the house, neighborhood and the beautiful gardens of the homes along our walks.

“Comfy, cozy”
Reviewed October 26, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We enjoyed a relaxing, pleasant, 6-day stay in this home. So close to cafes, interesting shops, decadent restaurants and an easy 2-minute walk to the grocery store; it made all our decisions easy. The kitchen was stocked with all the necessities for meal prep and the bedrooms were comfortable. I would stay here again on future trips to Victoria.

“Great house in a perfect location”
Reviewed September 21, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We stayed for two weeks with our young children and were impressed with the comfort of the house. It has everything for cooking with extras like spices, and we loved that there was already a high chair and things like shampoo and laundry soap. The only thing I would recommend to the owners (and why I gave it 4 stars) is to invest in a king bed for the master (something we have at home and really want when travelling...and a luxury for those who don't) as it is a big enough room, and perhaps a couple more bath towels. We enjoyed our stay and will be definitely be back as Victoria has always been our favorite place to visit!

A very clean, comfortable and well equipped house within walking distance of the harbour and downtown attractions. Also conveniently located for exploring the greater Victoria region.

“The house was clean and had everything we needed and more.”
Reviewed April 30, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We loved the house and its location - in Victorian part of Victoria. We walked and bussed everywhere we wanted to go. The beds were comfortable, quiet area and laundry room had everything we needed.
We would have loved to have a hot tub to soak our weary feet at nite.
It was easy to find and I found hot having keys was great.

“Wonderful sense of neighbourhood”
Reviewed October 9, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

person found this review helpful

After several visits to Victoria, staying in hotels, it was very satisfying to rent this 2 bedroom house a block from Dallas road and the ocean (also very close to a major supermarket and the James Bay Centre (drugstore, liquor store)) and a great coffee shop and sushi restaurant. The house was very comfortable, sunny, with a slight view to the ocean from the living room. The decor is pleasantly Ikea modern and the kitchen is well-equipped including a crab pot and many herbs/spices. It was also great to have laundry facilities and a backyard patio with BBQ. Major tourist attractions are within walking distance (transit was also available close by), but this visit we felt less like tourists and more like residents. James Bay is a lovely neighbourhood; recommend for a long-term stay.
We had one issue when we were there--the dishwasher sprung a leak, and it was fixed promptly.

“our little house in James Bay”
Reviewed March 1, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

person found this review helpful

This was our second stay at Palmer House. 2 years ago we stayed for 3 weeks and this time stayed for a month. We love the location as it's a block from Dallas Road - which goes along the waterfront. The neighbourhood is great for walking tours, with lots of interesting architecture, a 24 hr grocery store is an easy 2 block walk, and a government liquor store just across the street. Downtown Victoria is just a kilometer away for a walk or short drive. There are two bus routes with stops about 2 blocks away in either direction.
The house is cozy and well renovated and maintained. One of the things we noticed and appreciated for both visits was that the basics are there when you arrive: coffee, tea, soaps, spices, paper towels, toilet paper etc.
Trish and Rick are easy-going hosts; although we didn't even see them this visit.
The beds are comfy, the electric heating allows for a cool sleeping room and a warm living area. If we had one small complaint it would be the lighting in the livingroom could be a bit better for reading. We had to move some lamps from the bedrooms to have enough light.
