“Great location”
Reviewed May 8, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

My family really enjoyed the location of the loft and the look of the building. We were very tired, especially me, when we got to the location and upset that the code to the front door had been changed. I did not bother to look at emails after I left New Zealand due to everything being sorted before I left, including the code. It was a minor inconvenience, however when you're tired it's a big deal.
My brother was going to sleep in the loft, however found it to be too close to the ceiling for his liking and the stairs to the loft were a bit unsettling. We couldn't believe that the stairs and rails would actually pass a safety inspection. You really should sort these out. We thought that a better use for your closet facing the hide away bed would have been to perhaps to install a "Murphy Bed" thus giving everyone a proper bed and they easily stow away. The hide-a-bed was fine for a couple of days.
If I return to Victoria in the future I would love to bring my husband to this apartment. It was neat and I appreciated the fact that you showcased the Hudson Bay items throughout.

We pride ourselves on our great communication with our guests - both before and during their travels. We're sorry that the communication of our door code was lost in your travels but we did our very best to get that information to you. We made attempts to contact you both via both Flipkey AND your personal email in the 24 hours leading up to your arrival as your NZ mobile would not allow us to text.

As for the loft, the stairs and the sofa-bed, we are also very clear in ALL of our communication about their dimensions and design. None of these things should be a surprise to any of our guests if the photos are viewed and documents are read.

In the past 10 months we have more than pleased every other one of the 60+ guests we've had stay at our apartment and are very proud of both our service and our dwelling. We've strived to make our apartment as functional and unique as possible but recognize that it is not going to satisfy the tastes of everyone.

Loved the location! Apartment has tons of character and supplied everything we needed for our short stay. will need to come back and stay longer next time. The host was very accommodating and we had no issues finding the place or accessing it. Thank you!

“Gorgeous hipster delight”
Reviewed August 8, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This too adorable condo downtown Victoria on Yates has everything you could want. The two beds (one in the loft and one pullout) were perfect for me and a friend traveling on Vancouver Island. All of the items were perfectly curated - we both wanted to scoop up everything in the condo and take it with us. In addition to the great condo and location, there is also a rooftop patio where you can drink a glass (or three) of wine and ogle the city.
Also, Jules was easy to work with, accommodating my text-only preference (as my US cell plan would have charged for minutes), and her friend Mimi, who showed us around the condo, provided great recommendations for places to eat.
Would definitely stay again. One pro-tip - bring a sleeping mask as the skylights make the condo a bit too bright a bit too early in the morning ;-)

We had a very positive experience with Tiffany, from our first email through to her check-out. Three cheers for no surprises! She and her friend left the apartment very tidy too, making them dream guests. We would happily host T again and wish her the best on her travels.
