What a beautiful place to stay! It is clean, secure,quiet and exceptionally well equipped. It was great to walk in after a long flight and have a fruit basket on the table and breakfast taken care of! Steve and Trish went above and beyond in their introduction to the suite and building. Fabulous location close to all amenities. Could not have dreamed of a better place to stay. Janet B

Thank you for your very kind words Janet. We sincerely appreciate your review and we're pleased that you had a great stay with us.
You mentioned the great location of your suite and it's true, you really could not find a more convenient location in all of Victoria as it is close to everything from tourist attractions, shopping, dining, parks, the Inner Harbour and great walking trails.
We hope you return for another stay some time and, again, thank you for taking the time to post a review on Trip Advisor, we appreciate it very much.
Sincerely,
Steve and Trish

The suites are every bit as gorgeous as they look in the pictures. Great views.

Steve and Trish were ever helpful, friendly and available. We ate only at the restaurants they recommended, and we were always happy.

Thanks for your review Edward, the Horizon Suite is a beautiful apartment and the views of the Olympic Mountains and the Strait of Juan de Fuca are absolutely spectacular, aren't they?

We're pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and we hope you'll be back for another visit soon.

Very best wishes,

This is a comfortable, clean, and quiet bachelor apartment (the bed is separated from the street by the kitchen and living room). It is full of nice touches like the chocolates on the night table, the fruit, bread and milk that are there when you arrive. Steve and Trish are great, providing a friendly and informative welcome. I would gladly stay there again.

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at City Life "Panorama" with two adult daughters and a friend. We never tired of the city views and the location was perfect for exploring Victoria. The condo was immaculate and well equipped with two comfortable bedrooms and two full bathrooms. We spent most of our time in the condo on the outdoor balcony watching the birds, traffic and sunsets and moon rise. The condo managers were very gracious and helpful and we made good use of the wealth of information about Vancouver Island in the condo. We had a rental car for the week, but next time we would likely rent a car for a couple of days only as a car isn't needed in Victoria and transportation to the Butchart gardens and other island locations is readily available. The car was great for exploring the coasts and getting to hiking trails. When we left Victoria, we were already thinking about when we can return!

It is always such a pleasure to meet guests who are as charming and considerate as you M & S. We so much enjoyed meeting you and we're so glad that your visit to Victoria, BC, and your stay in the City Panorama Suite were both so enjoyable.
The reason that all of our self-catering vacation rental properties are located in downtown Victoria is for exactly the reasons you describe "a car isn't needed in Victoria and transportation is readily available". As well, the condos are all so close to the main tourist areas and there are lots of restaurants, attractions, parks, beaches, coffee shops etc. all within just a few minutes walk.
So, thanks again for your kind words and we hope you'll come and stay with us again the next time you visit Victoria.
Very best wishes to you and the girls!
Steve and Trish

City Life Suites was a home away from home for us while we were visiting Victoria. We were provided with a thorough orientation of the suite and the building, which made us very comfortable staying there.
The building is very secure with key fob access in and out of the building. The suite and the building is very clean and centrally located downtown. We were able to explore Victoria on foot and enjoyed several good restaurants within a few blocks.
Many amenities are provided in the suites such as umbrellas and even some food to get us started, so there was no need to rush off to the market to get some food right away. There was even a full carousel of spices to choose from when cooking!

We definetly plan to visit again and we will be staying with City Life Suites! Highly recommended!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Metro Suite of City Life Suites.The suite is beautifully decorated and impeccably clean. It has a fully equipped kitchen and everything in the suite is incredibly well maintained..The suite is very conveniently located, within walking distance to the inner harbour and downtown core.(Munro's Bookstore and the adjacent Murchies Cafe are not to be missed.) It is also walking distance to Cook Street Village and Beacon Hill Park.We highly recommend the Suite and thank Steve and Trish Young, the hosts, for their personal attention, their thoughtfulness and their gracious hospitality. We look forward to visiting again.
