Absolutely incredible place to live!! Lived in the building for the past few years. Work had me move out of province. I never wanted to leave, but a promotion was too good to turn down. Within 1 month in my new place, I realize just how good I had it as a renter living at Villa Monika. This place is first class for the rent you pay, and it's all because of the on site property manager (Richard). I already had problems in my new current place when i moved in and its been a month. I have been a renter for some 20 years and I have, quite frankly, had many problems at most of my rentals (5) before VM. I never had any problems when I moved into Villa Monika. The suite at VM was very well maintained when I moved in and super clean as goes for the rest of the building. The manager is very organized and expects the tenants to be also, which is what I appreciated. You better have your ducks in a row if you come into this place! It was a great experience moving into Villa Monika and it remained top notch through out my stay. They are very quick and organized with maintenance. As this is now my 7th rental, I can honestly say that Villa Monika was by far the best place I have ever rented. It's quiet, clean, and safe. Like anything in life, you get used to a good situation until you are no longer in it, and then you realize how good you had it.
I am happy to attest to the previous comments as they are very accurate. Thanks Richard for everything, you deserve every bit of credit here!!

The last review is spot on! By far the best rental I have ever had. It's nice to see a manager lead by example. They get great tenants in there and everyone appreciates the management, or at least the many I spoke with. That building should be the example for most of the West End. Although my new place is nice and better suited to me now, it still does not compare overall to what I had at the Villa Monika. If your a quality renter who wants a very quiet and clean place, you can't go wrong here. I'm surprised this manager is not running more of their properties. After living in one of their other buildings, which was a pain and the management was so so, I came here. Wow! is all I can say. Best move I made. Thanks for everything VM, and thanks for letting me live in such a well run place.

Fantastic building. Lived there for almost 2 decades. Building was just ok until about 7 years ago when a new Property Manager took over the place. They completely turned this building around and made it a very safe and clean place to live. Did a ton of maintenance to the place. Quite frankly, I have never seen a manager run such a good operation for a rental in my 35 years of renting. Of course everybody always has something to complain about, but this is definitely one of the best buildings to live in in the West End. Unless of course your willing to pay $1800 a month and beyond. They run it the way it should be run. Clean, safe, well maintained. I saw more changes in the final 5 years than i did in all 15 plus years previous. Nothing but good about this place.
