Hello, I’m


Welcome to Victoria

Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value . . .

My Story

I came to Victoria on holiday a “donkey’s age” ago. I fell in love and never left.

This is my story and the story of many who come here for a short trip and decide to stay. No matter where you live in the city, wherever you look you see beauty.

Whether it’s sunset, forest, greenery, ocean, harbour, hills, sea and sky, beauty is all around.  How bad can a place be where lampposts are festooned with  bloomin’ flower baskets all summer and thousands come each year to take in the natural beauty and the charm of Victoria.

Came to play, chose to stay . . . .

Victoria, a city made entirely out of gingerbread.

The crown of the city is the Causeway or inner harbour full of colour and sound all year ’round. The backdrop to the Causeway is the iconic Empress Hotel, the jewel in that crown. Victoria is a small city dotted with gingerbread charm with big city amenities.  Plenty of ethnic diversity is reflected in our cultural events and restaurants. It’s still a growing city and I enjoy sharing it with business and leisure travelers alike – so welcome All!

Established “downtown furnished rentals” in 2006 and has been growing the service over a number of years. I enjoy meeting people and if I can help with a problem – great. I have always strived for quality over quantity in just about everything I do. This means I will never be rich but that’s okay because personal fulfillment is more valuable.

Helena has been the property manager of our downtown Victoria condo for the past three years. She has made being an absentee property owner and landlord very, very easy. She is super efficient. Very fair and easy to communicate with, and reach if necessary. Most importantly, in those three years we have not had a single day without a tenant. We unreservedly recommend Helena and Downtown Furnished Rentals.


Claire and Tim

Helena manages rentals for clients such as myself. Simply put, she provides to the owner a knowledgeable and disciplined approach to rentals. She is considerate and has a very intuitive approach to her customers whether she is acting on behalf of the unit owner or the rental tenant. I am pleased to recommend Helena to anyone who requires professional management of their furnished or unfurnished rentals.
