I am writing this review into the 2nd week of our 2 month stay. Our unit is The Cosmopolitan located in the Era building on Yates St. We are very impressed Excellent downtown location - walking distance to everything; 75 steps to the Odeon Theatre; 150 steps to the Liquor Store and an exceptional Asian Restaurant; across the road from a nice pub with terrific Happy Hour specials. A modern, posh, quiet, very secure, immaculate building. Our unit is bright, exceptionally clean and very well kitted out. The attention to detail is impressive. The bed is sooooooo comfy. Melissa & Rod are very charming and accomodating. I am known as a bit of a "fusspot" and can be very discerning. If I could provide a 10/5 rating, I would with no hesitation. Highly recommend City Life Suites.

City Life Suites is an excellent company. Melissa and Rod are professional, efficient, prepared, and responsive. The suite had EVERYTHING we needed. Perfectly clean, extremely comfortable, tastefully appointed, and the view is All That. The building location is perfect, both for its views and its walkability. Victoria is our favorite June City, and next time through, we would certainly go with City Life Suites again. With one caveat. We were there one month. Exterior re-painting began the day we arrived, so we had painters hanging in our window at unpredictable times throughout the month. We could not use the balcony (and had to store the balcony furniture inside the unit). Of course maintenance is both desireable and necessary. But as a one-month renter during “painting month”, I think a heads-up is fair, if not an opt-out option.

Dear Roy & Ting, Thank you so much for your review of the Horizon Suite in Victoria BC and also for your kind words for our family owned agency! The view from the Horizon Suite are amazing, overlooking Ogden Point and the famous Inner Harbour, and yes, the location can't be beat! The Astoria Building is requested time and time again from our repeat guests! We try very hard to make sure everything is just perfect for our travelers so this painting project was definitely a thorn in our side. It effected only a few of our suites in the Astoria, however unfortunately, your balcony was one of those effected. If we would have known in advance of what side the painters were starting on we would have absolutely given you some advance notice. We were unsure of what to expect as communication between the trades and building lacked, but we are thankful it will be another 12 years before the building is repainted again! We look forward to seeing you again on your next trip to Victoria! Most Sincerely, Rod & Melissa City Life Suites Ltd Victoria BC

We stayed in the Horizon Suite because the one bedroom property we had reserved was not available. What an amazing upgrade! We can't imagine staying in any properties other than City Life Suites. Melissa and Rod are great hosts and the properties are equipped with everything you might need during your stay.

We have rented many homes and condos in the past, but there is just no comparison to be made with the level of service Melissa and Rod offer. From the moment you inquire about a rental until the day you leave to return home, Melissa and Rod are available for any needs you may have. From making sure that there is coffee, cream and fruit upon our arrival to finding a temporary parking slot in a pinch, arranging for additional cable services during our stay as well as a cleaning service, they cheerfully offered their help no matter what we needed. We stayed twice in the Panorama Suite, each time for a month. The building is perfectly located and the suite is beautiful and immaculate. The view from the suite is spectacular. I would do business with Melissa and Rod any time and recommend them without hesitation.
