We have rented the Garden suite for some of our out of town workers. Gary has been extremely accommodating, professional and friendly. The suit is always clean and well kept. It is very central and close to grocery stores, malls and gas stations. Highly recommend. 10/10 from us at Pino-Lite Glass!!

I stayed in this suite with my fellow classmates for our clinical rotation in Victoria. It is an ideal space for anyone to stay. It only took 15 minutes to bus or drive into the downtown area. It took approximately 20 minutes to walk to Royal Jubilee Hospital or 10 minutes or less (depending on traffic) to drive. It is one block away from multiple major bus routes that can get you anywhere you need. There is also a great shopping mall to buy groceries, eat out, or do anything really. The house was fully stocked with everything you need in every room. Gary is very generous and provides great cleaning supplies, linens and bedding, and tea and coffee when you come in. Whenever we needed Gary he was always there. He responded very fast to messages and could answer any question or fix any concern promptly. He also was able to provide some great recommendations for food and fun things to do in town. I highly recommend staying at Gary's Pearl Suite in Victoria. You will not be disappointed! Thanks for being such an amazing landlord, Gary! :)

The Pearl House Garden Suite was the perfect short-term rental! My roommates and I were on a 5-month clinical semester at the BC Cancer Clinic and the suite was in the most ideal location. It was a 20 minute walk to the hospital, 5 minute walk to Hillside Mall and nearby many food options, gas stations and a grocery store. The unit itself was identical to the photos and in pristine condition. We did convert the media room into a 3rd bedroom with the bed on the platform which Gary had no problem with. Gary was the perfect landlord who was readily available to us whenever we needed him, which was not often. He went above and beyond supplying many basic necessities including sheets, towels, pots, pans, paper towel, toilet paper, shampoo, etc. He was very respectful, reasonable and was very easy to communicate with. I would 100% recommend this suite to anyone looking for short-term rental in Victoria!

We required a five-week rental close to the Royal Jubilee Hospital, and 1519 Pearl - Garden Suite was perfect. 1519 Pearl has everything a couple would need to live and rest while in treatment. The Hospital was close; 5 - 10 minutes away depending on road work. The Hillside Mall (recently renovated), had a good grocery store, Thrifty's, as well as Starbucks, and a good selection of stores - all within walking distance (6 minutes). 1519 Pearl - Garden Suite was furnished and nicely appointed - much nicer than a hotel room - we had everything we needed for the kitchen, dining room, bathrooms, bedrooms (very comfy queen sized bed, and a large TV (full selection of channels) and an excellent wi-fi connection. Everything also included basic supplies not usually seen in a rental - tea, coffee, sugar, water, cleaning materials, vacuum and the garden had a table, umbrella, and chairs (just like home). In the early days, our host Gary checked with us regularly to ensure that we were comfortable. If we needed anything, it was supplied, quickly, willingly and with no hassle. Gary is a Superhost and we were comfortable during our stay. A bonus in July and August is a local community market on a Wednesday evening with live music, beer garden, local foods, and food trucks. Well attended by the local community and a plus for us. We are happy to recommend 1519 Pearl.
