January 11, 2019 - 6th Airbnb Superhost Award
We are very pleased to have received our 6th in a row Superhost Award from Airbnb. When we started our short term vacation rental we decided that we would work towards making every guest have a wonderful experience in our condo. We consistently greet all guests so they know where to park, know about all the features of the condo and building, and know more about Victoria than when they arrived. We do inspections on our condo before each guest arrives after our cleaners are done to make sure everything is perfect. We then add many extras to create great value for our guests. This award confirms that our quality of service is working and that our guests are receiving the quality and service they deserve when they rent from us. We will continue to make sure all our properties meet the highest standards for our guests.
Our slogan is our rentals are "Better Than Home". This award shows we are meeting this objective.

January 5, 2019 - 100 Review Milestone
We are excited! Last night our lovely short-term vacation rental in Old Town Victoria (on Vancouver Island, Canada) just received its 100th review on the major booking sites we are listed on! With consistent work, prompt communication, and of course the good will of our great guests, we have successfully maintained our 5-star status since opening 17 months ago, as well as our Superhost and Premium Partner status.
Our very first review in August 2017 was from a Dutch family who arrived on opening day, and since then we’ve been booked for all but a few nights of each month. Our guests have come from around the world, and we've even received a review in Korean and one in Italian! 87.7% of our guests have kindly taken the time to post a review after their stay, and we are encouraged by their comments that we are providing a quality experience for each of the 100s of people who have stayed in our private downtown rental condo/apartment. Beyond the essentials of having a great location and a secure underground parking space, we feel the key has been a combination of attention to detail in providing everything our guests could possibly need during their stay, as well as working with meticulous cleaners, and giving our welcome a very personal touch. Hospitality has lifelong been one of my core values. Gary and I (or our co-host Sue) have personally greeted every guest who’s arrived and given them a helpful orientation as well as a welcome gift of fresh cookies, fruit, and flowers and more!
It’s been genuinely fun, and Gary and I love running this (licensed, fully legal) short-term vacation rental. We would be delighted if you, our friends, would kindly ‘like' our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/BeautifulVictoriaRentals/and ideally share it with other friends who like to travel. The West Coast is so beautiful, and we would be particularly thrilled if you would consider our lovely city of Victoria and our very cozy rental condo as you plan one of your next trips!
