“Merry Christmas 2013”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

We booked our City Life Suites apartment via Trip Advisor and from the outset the information we received directly from Steve & Trish was excellent. Lots of good directions and the apartment was in very good condition, and exactly as stated in the advertisements.
We were met by Steve who was the perfect 'host' and took us through everything before handing over the keys. They even provided us with a christmas tree and lights - how thoughtful - many thanks.
Everything we needed, and more was available in the apartment and when we did need to call 'them' they could not have been more helpful.
The only negative comment, and this is no means the fault of City Life is the street noise from about 0600 every morning (except Xmas Day) the garbage trucks or similar seem to turn up to empty bins somewhere, but this did not detract from our stay - just ensured we made morning tea that much earlier!
Great spot to stay and we would certainly recommend City Life Suites to anybody else looking for a trouble free stay in Victoria.
Thanks to Steve & Trish especially

My family, 2 adults 2 children, stayed in the Victoria Luxe Penthouse Suite. It was great. The location was within walking distance to everything downtown. The neighborhood was safe and had a large assortment of restaurants and shopping. The Market on Yates is directly across the street and contains anything you could want at a reasonable price. Steve and Trish are very attentive and helpful with everything. This was the best place we have stayed in as a family. We cannot wait to visit again.

We have nothing but raves for the Horizon Suite! We visited in mid December to meet a new grandson. We were able to walk, bus, as needed everywhere,all while our vehicle was safely parked ready for use if required.. Perfect for us. Several members of our family also stayed for a few days and the suite accommodated us all in style. We felt at home immediately.The suite was immaculate, beds super comfortable, the kitchen set up for breakfast,the view something you dream about,lots of seating for visiting ,great climate control,an office to use for business, good light for reading, laundry in suite with supplies . Really a home away from home.
The building is extremely secure and well managed. We all are ready to move there!

We really appreciate your very positive review Cheryl and we are so pleased that you found the Horizon Suite to your liking.
It was great meeting you and Monte and we certainly hope you'll return again to stay with us.
The views from the Horizon Suite really are incredible aren't they? Today the sky is clear and the views across Juan de Fuca Strait to the Olympic Mountains in Washington state are absolutely stunning.
In closing, we are most grateful to have met you and, again, we hope you'll come back for another stay with City Life Suites very soon.
Take care!

I stayed here for a few months. It was ideal. The owners are thoughtful, friendly, and very helpful. They even invited me out for tea. They were always available whenever anything came up. The place looks exactly like the photos and on the website. It is spotless and I never had a problem with anything. The building has nice amenities and the parking spot is big. The location is good, right Downtown Victoria. I would stay here again and recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay.

I stayed in the metro suite. I found their description on their website to be true. Extremely clean, centrally located, and almost everything walkable--took shuttle to Butchart Gardens and cab to Oak Bay. So centrally located it was easy to stop back at the suite if I forgot anything or wanted to drop off purchases mid-day. Greatly appreciated that Trish and Steve stocked the suite with modest breakfast foods (fruit, bread, butter, and beverages) prior to arrival. They also provided great restaurant and walking tour recommendations. Would stay again in a heart-beat!

This is a city suite which means you will hear city noise day and night. I actually like city noise, but if this is a problem for you bring a white noise machine or download a white noise app on your smart phone.

Thank you very much for your comprehensive and complimentary review Katie, we really appreciate it! We do our best to ensure that we exceed the expectations of our guests and try to make them feel warmly welcomed into our vacation rental suites.
Thanks, too, for the "white noise" suggestion as a tool for noise sensitive guests. We branded our company as City Life Suites so that there would never be any misunderstanding that all of our properties are located in the heart of downtown Victoria. As such there will always be the sounds of the city outside. Most of the time they are barely audible, but if you like to sleep with the windows open you will surely hear the traffic outside (although almost all of our apartments are located on side streets away from main thoroughfares).
Anyway, thanks again for your very kind words and we certainly look forward to seeing you again the next time you come to visit Victoria.

We stayed in the Harbourside Suite for 10 days in October. The condo was perfect! The first thing that struck us was how clean it was. The kitchen had everything you would ever need to cook a meal. I mean everything!! The bed was so comfortable, even for my 6'3" husband.
We had fun watching the activity outside our window in the harbour. The tug boats and the kayakers as well as a few seals. The building is very secure. Steve and Trish were wonderful to work with. Very helpful and friendly. We highly recommend this condo.

The unit (Harbourside Suite) is in a fantastic location, easy walking distance to restaurants, entertainment, and whatever else you might want or need. The efficient layout of the room made the small space seem larger than it is, although we did not spend much time in the room. What sets City Life Suites apart is the high level of service. We had fresh fruit, coffee and other basic supplies in the room when we arrived. Steve picked us up at the bus depot and gave a thorough tour of the space as we arrived. At the end of our trip Trish brought us back to the depot and made sure we we on our way before leaving. While we were there, they had many good suggestions on how to spend our time and even helped us rent a classical guitar. We will be back!

Room Tip: Harbourside suite is tripping distance from the Canoe club.
