“Adorable place, fantastic location and lovely owner!”
Reviewed 7 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We had a lovely stay in the apartment, we are two students and there was plenty of space for the two of us! It's right next to Fisherman's Wharf (which you HAVE to visit to feed the seals and visit the artsy boutiques) and about a 15 minute walk to downtown. The kitchen is very small so only appropriate to cook basic things like pasta or prepare breakfast but it suited us fine. Thomas was also a lovely host, giving us loads of helpful tips and letting us use his washing machine and drier. The garden is also gorgeous for sunny days and there is a barbecue if you're up for it! Would recommend to anyone looking for a great Victoria vacation.

Actually, have have had a no. of repeat guests that stayed here for a whole month and the kitchen was large enough for all their cooking needs. It has convection/toaster owen, microwave, induction hot plate, rice cooker, slow cooker, fridge, a sink and an outdoor BBQ.

“A Perfect base for exploration”

This apartment is absolutely perfect for a couple. We stayed for 10 days and were very comfortable. The kitchen is extremely small, but has been carefully planned so that should you wish to, you are able to prepare and cook simple dishes. The lounge area is small but well organised and stylish. The bathroom has a fantastic shower and the bedroom is nicely proportioned and has an extremely comfortable bed.
It is a few minutes walk from some of the most stunning scenery on Dallas Road and Fisherman's Wharf, where you can go on a whale spotting cruise, feed a couple of resident seals fish or eat Barb's delicious freshly cooked fish!
There are a lot of interesting things to do in Victoria and this apartment is very close to the Inner Harbour and has easy access to everything.

“Very convenient to downtown Victoria”

This place was very conveniently locate, clean and had a separate entrance. We were very comfortable. The kitchen is really just a converted closet, but it works well for the little bit of cooking we did. There is a grocery store just up the hill and was an easy stop on our way to and from downtown. If your going on vacation to watch TV you will be disappointed. There is a TV in the room, but it all seemed to be pay per view. I didn't spend much time on it. The back garden was very pleasant an relaxing. We would definitely stay here again.

“Small, quiet and friendly”
Reviewed 3 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

people found this review helpful

This little apartment is in a quiet residential street in James Bay, about a 15 minute walk to downtown Victoria. The owners (and their old dog) were friendly but not intrusive. It seems like a great neighbourhood. The apartment is small but well equipped - although unlike your average Australian holiday rental there was no coffee, tea or milk provided, and no corner shops nearby. So come prepared! It's a short walk to Fisherman's Wharf - where you can hang out with the local seals, and a sea otter if you are lucky, while eating delicious fresh local seafood and walking past rows of quirky float homes (house boats).

Stayed for two very comfortable nights in St James Bay. The apartment was small but very nice and in a very good location easy to walk to the coast, cafes and central Victotia. Thomas was really helpful with recommendations. Would stay here again.
