Our Services

 

The Renaissance consists of 59 large suites in a 3-storey building that was originally built in 1963 as a multi-family apartment building. In 1998, the building was redesigned for its present purpose and given a complete upgrade. There is over one acre of grounds area from the circular drive and landscaped areas of the front yard; the deck, water fountain, rose garden and visitor parking area in the courtyard; to the open and covered resident parking and landscaped area at the rear of the building.

The building amenities include an 86 seat, 1800 square foot dining room that extends from the front of the building facing Esquimalt Road to the patio deck in the courtyard. The library lounge and the billiard room are adjacent the dining room and also open to the courtyard deck. Next to the billiard room is the Guest Suite. The guest suite is available to residents’ visitors at a nominal fee of $55 per night (including breakfast). Just off the courtyard lobby is the mail room and hair salon. The mail is delivered daily around lunchtime. The hair salon is open every Tuesday for men and women.

 

Our Services included:

Sample MenuDinner is a fully served meal prepared daily by our chef, Hernando. The meal begins with a choice of soup or salad both of which are freshly made that afternoon. There are always two choices for the main course. Residents are provided each week’s menu in advance and can request an omelet or cold plate as an alternative. The dessert varies each day from cake to pies and ice cream to yogurt. 

 

 

Gone are the days filled with housework and cleaning. We take care of life’s everyday chores so you can spend more time enjoying life’s special moments. Our professional housekeeping staff will come into your suite once a week to wash, clean, and vacuum. Bed linens and towels are laundered, the kitchen and bathroom are cleaned, carpets are vacuumed, and the furniture is dusted. Your suite cleaning can be customized to your needs ensuring an immaculate living space every time.

All utilities are included in the rent. Heat is provided by a large gas fired boiler that heats and circulates hot water to baseboard heaters in the suite. Each suite has its own thermostatic control in the living room. The cable vision provided by Shaw includes all 3-tiers, which gives you access to more than 60 channels.

Jane, our Director of Activities, is always planning new and exciting activities for you to enjoy and excursions for you to go on. During the year The Renaissance has 12 special dinners in which Chef Hernando features new and extraordinary cuisine. Wine is usually served at these dinners to compliment the rich and complex flavours.

Our elegant dining room isn’t just home to some of the best cooking in Greater Victoria it’s also a place where musical guests come and perform for the residents of The Renaissance.
