Great suite in great location!

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week in beautiful Victoria and this suite and the location certainly made it enjoyable. Rod & Melissa were very friendly and efficient, Rod was waiting for us upon our arrival to welcome us and show us to the Harmony suite and explain how everything worked. They even supplied a loaf of bread, milk, fruit, tea, coffee, spices, etc. A very nice touch that was very appreciated. It is very well equipped and the spacious patio was a real bonus. We walked everywhere we wanted to go and left the vehicle parked in the free secure underground parking for the majority of our stay.

Lots of wonderful restaurants, pubs and shopping within a very short distance. Close to the harbour!

There was construction going on in the next lot but it really did not bother us and the owners have no control over that.

Lots to see and do in Victoria if you want to do it! We had a great week and hope to return and would certainly stay in this suite again!

Thanks Melissa & Rod!

We had a wonderful stay at Horizon Suite. The apartment is nicely furnished and very well equipped. Since we had great wheather we especially enjoyed the terrace and the opportunity to barbeque .

Also loved the perfect location - everything within walking distance.

Special thanks to Melissa who made everything so easy (from the first mail contact to the check out).

We certainly will come back!

Really enjoyed this facility, was very central to everything for walking, and very accessible for vehicles.

Melissa is a lovely bubbly lady who greeted us when we arrived.

The price is fair for the amenities provided.

Would recommend this facility.

Excellent and central

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 8 days in this nice apartment. Big enough for a family of 4 adults and very central and safe. Own parking in safe underground garage. Free WI-FI and TV with lots of channels was just an extra plus. Administration of the suite handled by City Life Suites was excellent, smooth, precise and very friendly.

Cancellation Policy
Our reservation and cancellation policies must be more restrictive than a large hotel since a cancellation is very disappointing to both the guests and to us as, in most instances, we will have turned away other guests who would have reserved the apartment for your dates.
Our cancellation policy states that, "should you fail to use your confirmed reservation, we reserve the right to retain all funds received as liquidated damages until the unit is re-rented at the same rate for the same time period. If the latter occurs we will retain a $100 CAD administrative fee."
We recommend you consider trip cancellation insurance to protect your vacation.
We are required to charge taxes on all reservations. If your stay however is one month plus one night (or more) taxes are exempt.
British Columbia Provincial Sales tax requires that we charge taxes on all occupancies of one month or less. If you reserve for one month, plus one day (or more) your booking will be TAX EXEMPT
