Testimony for Manor Suite Off Rockland

We spent all of April at Elizabeth, Bob and Louie's suite. The neighbourhood is beautiful and it is a 20-25 minute walk to downtown, Cook Street Village and Oak Bay Village.
The unit was well equipped, clean and bright. We look forward to staying with them again.
There seemed to be overkill in the amount of paperwork sent by the Property Management company. I feel that it could be streamlined in some areas.

Testimony for Miraloma 209

ProsOur week in this suite was very comfortable and spacious. The balcony overlooked the beautifully landscape grounds with a peek at the marina and bay. There are ocean views and some beach within a 5 min walk. In April the building was very quiet and it seemed we had the gym and sauna to ourselves. Amazing bathroom with lots of storage for makeup and hair tools with cozy heated floors. We loved the location being 5 min to the ferries and Victoria about 30min away. The underground parking and bike storage was also great! The kitchen was a very nice size for the week.
Cons for some reason we didn't find the beautiful king bed very comfortable could be just us
Otherwise, one of our best vacations! I would return here for the slow pace and peace and quiet in this elegant setting.

Thank you for your review and for taking the time to share your experience with other travellers.


Testimony for Herons Landing

We had a great time staying at Herons Landing. The house was beautiful and clean with anything you could need to cook in the home. Close to the water and easy drive to Sidney or Victoria.

That being said, the ad listed on both VRBO and AirBnb stated this was a rental house, not shared living. It stated there was a SEPARATE caretaker or renter residence ON THE PROPERTY. It did not say it was a shared home or shared yard. We rented this house to specifically have it to ourselves. The yard was shared with renters in the basement who let their dog out into the backyard. The ad seems dishonest and misleading. We wouldnt have rented if we knew it was a shared house/yard.


The EMR Vacation Rentals Response

Thank you for your review of the property. Glad to know you enjoyed your stay. The suite in the house is not shared space. It is by definition a completely self contained and separately living rental suite. If you have concerns about the disclaimer please consider asking us before booking. There is some areas of the property that are consider common area such as parking spaces and walk ways to the house from the road, and some parts of the back yard but not the decks or living spaces of the rental property. Thank you again for staying at Heron's Landing and we hope to host your stay again in the future.

Testimony for Kye Bay Beach House

The amazing location and fantastic views made it a memorable stay.

Testimony for Dalmeny Farm Estate

We were travelling with family from the Toronto area, neither had been to the Island. Wanting 3 bedroom accommodations, a house was the best option for us! We all enjoyed the house and would come again! We were about 20 minutes from Victoria but managed with GPS! Home very clean , comfortable,and beautiful views! Yes! The hot tub thumbs up!

Testimony for Beachside Cottage On Saanich Inlet

We had a wonderful Easter in the beautiful quaint home. You can tell it is well taken care of and well thought of. Super user friendly and easy to get to. Comfortable and cozy home away from home . Thanks for sharing your home with us. Good price too!!


The EMR Vacation Rentals Response

We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay!


Testimony for Station Villa Executive Condo

Condo was in Excellent location for golfing. Lots of courses working a half hour drive. Was bigger than expected. Cleanliness was average. If you were a extra clean person you might not be satisfied. Was fine for us. Close to Costco Walmart superstore and other shopping at the small mall was also great.


The EMR Vacation Rentals Response

Can we suggest that you advise us immediately if they are any issue as we would like the opportunity to address ans issue that you may have to ensure that you have a perfect stay.


Testimony for Pendray House

Clean and quiet. There was 12 of us and plenty of room. Yes would recommend


The EMR Vacation Rentals Response

We loved hosting you and look forward to welcoming you again soon!


Testimony for Pendray House

We loved everything from the cozy house to picturesque views! The kids LOVED the bunk beds!


The EMR Vacation Rentals Response

It was a pleasure hosting you and we are happy that the kids enjoyed themselves!


Testimony for Pendray House

We completed a long weekend at Pendray House with three generations to celebrate a 90th birthday. The home was perfect for everyone with enough space for quieter types and open gathering places in the kitchen, living room and dining room for conversation and laughter together. The beach in front allows for walks on the shoreline, exploring tide pools and for the hardy soul, swimming. It is about a 15 minute drive to Sidney with great shopping and restaurants and about 35 minutes to Downtown Victoria. I would definitely recommend this home for families or for a group of friends wanting to enjoy a reunion in a relaxed environment. The check-in process was seamless. Our greeter Richard, was very welcoming as were the neighbors that we met on the beach. All in all, it was a great place to holiday at.


The EMR Vacation Rentals Response

Thank yuo for choosing us for your 90th celebration and stay. We are truly delighted to hear that you enjoyed yourself and look forward to welcoming you in the near future. We will also be sure to pass on your regards to your greeter Richard.


Testimony for Pendray House

It was a lovely spot to reunite with old friends. Very nice feeling to the place. Shopping was handy by. We cooked a lot. A very nice kitchen and dining room combo for preparing meals together.


The EMR Vacation Rentals Response

Thank you for your kind words and for staying with us!


Testimony for Pendray House

We had a wonderful staycation. The property is breathtaking. The ocean and beach are just outside your backdoor. The patio is a perfect place to have a BBQ, Happy Hour or just sit back and relax. Loved the wood burning fireplace inside house and that wood was provided. Lots of beds available for everyone and we all slept well. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, glassware and cutlery. Maybe a bit over stocked with other items. Some reorganization of the kitchen cupboards and drawers might also free up some space for any groceries that you bring along. Not a big deal, just a suggestion. Would not hesitate to book again!


The EMR Vacation Rentals Response

So happy you enjoyed your staycation! We loved hosting you!


Testimony for Miraloma 209

It was everything as described. Loved the location, easy access to downtown Sidney. Can't say enough, wonderful condo with everything you need. Small hotplate burner could have been a stove but we managed. Will stay here again if we get the chance. Will definitely look at booking through EMR as they were very helpful and easy to deal with. Wonderful, wonderful.


The EMR Vacation Rentals Response

Thank you for the wonderful review Scott! We look forward to welcoming you again.


Testimony for Miraloma 209

This property is beautifully appointed, cozy and very comfortable. Great walk-a-bility, right out the front door. Lovely garden area and semi-waterfront view from porch. Enjoyed our visit to Sidney and the Saanich Peninsula area of Vancouver Island very much, and plan to return here hopefully soon.


The EMR Vacation Rentals Response

Testimony for Miraloma 209

Enjoyed our stay. Unit seemed as though it was once lovely - but very tired now and needing repairs . Priority ... new bedroom linen, and repairs to lifting of kitchen floor following severe water damage. One side of recliner doesnt work.


The EMR Vacation Rentals Response

Thank you Simon for your review, I have passed on your comments to our property management team.


Testimony for Miraloma 209

Highly recommended. Everything you need in kitchen to cook a full meal. MW convection oven like a regular oven. Unit clean and comfortable. Lovely king size bed. Location is very quiet and picturesque, near trees and ocean, with a nice bench to sit with your sweetie and watch the water.


The EMR Vacation Rentals Response

Testimony for Miraloma 209

Nice quiet place


The EMR Vacation Rentals Response

We are truly pleased that you enjoyed your stay!


Testimony for Camden Green Mews

This was a great rental property. The building is well kept. The location is ideal for exploring the greater Victoria area. For those with bicycles it is perfect as they have a very secure locked bike storage room and the Galloping Goose trail is easily accessed down the street. This is the best and most generously equipped and organized condo that I have ever rented.
Everything including the gas bbq, the comfortable bed, the printer, the washer/dryer, the secure underground parking and more made this a very comfortable stay. I would highly recommend this unit.


The EMR Vacation Rentals Response

Thank you for your amazing review. We also enjoyed hosting you!


Testimony for Heron View Cottage

Once again a terrific experience in Jim's cottage. Great location within walking distance to Sidney and ocean etc. Clean, comfortable, well appointed. Our home away from home.


The EMR Vacation Rentals Response

Thank you for your review! We are pleased to read that you enjoyed your stay and would love to host you soon again!


Testimony for Columbia Beach House

Fabulous location. EMR was excellent in responding to issues that needed attention. Disappointed that the fence was not repaired until just before we left so our small dog was not able to use the yard.The wall oven was problematic and needs to be replaced and the carpet in the living room was very stained and also needs to be replaced. Lots of dishes and utensils but a few more pots would be nice. The sectional in the living room is showing it's age as well as the patio furniture. A few coasters would be good in the living room. Kudos to Yvonne and her staff as well as Diane and Brad the gardeners.


The EMR Vacation Rentals Response

Thank you for taking the time to share this with other travelers. Since your departure we took the liberty of fixing the issues that you have listed as we would love the opportunity to host you again so that you can create more memorable moments at the Columbia Beach House. We will also pass on your regards to Yvonne and her team including Diane and Brad.


Testimony for Pacific Coast Beach House

Wonderful place to stay for a getaway


The EMR Vacation Rentals Response

Thankyou for your wonderful review! We look forward to hosting you soon again!


Testimony for Pacific Coast Beach House and Suite

I was frustrated and disappointed in this rental.- firewood is not included.- the building was stone cold when we arrived- missing equipment and broken equipment eg shovel for fireplace, no tea pot etc, no candles or matches
- the hosting process is inconvenient
- there is no safe access to the water- the gazebo was locked, so we couldn't spend time near the ocean.
for the 5 bedrooms there was a total of 2 extra blankets. you need more blankets. there were no extra linens for the beds. For example, there were no sheets for the hide-a-bed.


The EMR Vacation Rentals Response

Thank you very much for your review of the Pacific Coast Beach House and Suite. We are sorry to read that the property did not meet your expectations. There is a private beach at the house but during the winter the gazebo is locked up due to winter storms. We will look into some of the missing items you mentioned. The house is getting some new upgrades this winter. Hopefully you can give it a try again in the future.


Testimony for Arbutus Hill

Wonderful, the only issue was the hot water did not work properly the last night. Also, the shower in the master bedroom was too short.


The EMR Vacation Rentals Response

Thank you for your wonderful review. We have looked into the hot water and it is working.


Testimony for Arbutus Hill

Our fun group of ladies had a wonderful time together at this beautiful and spacious house. It was a relaxing sanctuary to come back to after a long day of sightseeing. The hot tub was bonus, the large fully stocked kitchen made meal prep easy and the comfortable beds provided a good nights sleep.


The EMR Vacation Rentals Response

Thank you for your fantastic review of your stay. We happy to know you enjoyed your stay. Hope to host you again soon.

Testimony for Oceanside Lodge On Saanich Inlet

We had a wonderful 4 day family reunionthe property was great. I'm mentioned the coffee maker not working, a plumbing issue and not being able to reset the breaker that tripped to an EMR employee. I suggest you provide documentation for the barbeque.


The EMR Vacation Rentals Response

Thank you for your review. Since you last stay we have changed the coffee maker and fixed the issue with the plumbing and home alarm. We would love the opportunity to host you again!
