About Us

Since 2006, Downtown Furnished Rentals has provided a platform for owners and renters offering or looking for mid to long term rentals. Constantly striving to improve our  standards & services and to be the absolute best in the industry, it is with great pride I welcome a new partnership with IRIS PROPERTIES. Together we can achieve so much more. IRIS properties are going to bring us to the next level.

To specialize in the development, procurement and management of real estate assets within the short term and extended stay accommodation space:

  • apartment-hotels
  • vacation rentals
  • luxury villas
  • executive furnished rentals.

I came to Victoria a “donkey’s age ago” as a visitor and decided to stay. This is my home now and I love sharing my city with visitors and newcomers alike. Everywhere you look there is beauty; sea, to sky, field and forest and blooming flower baskets downtown, it’s all here.
