After doing days of research for our BC trip I came across this little gem of a place in James Bay. It's a lovely house broken up into apartments. We chose the African Suite and it was just perfect for our needs. It's in a quiet, residential area but within easy walking distance of the city and with parking space at the back of the house.
The apartment is quite compact but even with 2 small kids we never felt on top of each other. The boys slept on a pull out sofa, while we had a separate bedroom with one of the largest beds I've ever seen.
The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed and more, with a lovely large dining table that fitted the 4 of us easily. Everything was spotlessly clean too.
Spacious bathroom, plenty of lovely fluffy towels and a comfy tub to soak in.There is also a laundry room nest to the suite and access to a laptop 24 hours a day.
The owners were very friendly and extremely helpful with local information, (thank you Mike)
From the house it was spitting distance to the beach and a lovely walk along the beachfront or to Beacon Hill Park just a couple of minutes away. It would take us about 10 minutes with 2 dawdling kids to walk into downtown Victoria and just 3 or 4 minutes to get to a food store and fantastic fish and chip/Chinese restaurant.
All in all we absolutely loved it here and if ever happen to be in Victoria again would definitely stay here.
