The Owner purchased this condo in 2009
We chose to buy at Bear Mountain for the proximity to Victoria and all its offerings, while also enjoying the majestic natural splendor of being on a mountain top with an ambience similar to Whistler.
When we stay at the condo we enjoy the many outdoor activities including the pool at the Mountainside Athletic Club, but we also like sight-seeing in Victoria strolling around the harbour, shopping and eating at the many wonderful restaurants. The Butchart botanical gardens are a must for us every summer and every Christmas season.
After reading all other reviews, I don't have much to add except it is has well equipped kitchen and very nice BBQ. It was fun stay and couldn't be any better.
This was our third stay at this apartment at Bear Mountain. The condo is a beautifully appointed home-away-from-home on the 8th floor with a lovely mountain and golf course view. We could have whipped something up for dinner in the gourmet kitchen, but instead we chose to walk to the Westin just down the street. In the morning, after a restful sleep in their very comfortable beds, and breakfast, we hiked up the trail towards Mount Finlayson. This luxurious condo has a lot to offer - it is spacious, quiet, and modern with close proximity to the City. The owners were excellent to deal with. We would recommend this condo very highly, and look forward to our next visit.
Beautiful spacious condo in the heart of Bear Mountain village. Very quiet location at the back of the condo building with views of the mountains and forest. Handy underground parking.
Easy access to Langford and Victoria
We stayed at this beautifully decorated & well equipped penthouse condo for four weeks. The condo appears to be fairly new with great amenities. It's on the 8th floor overlooking hole #1of the Mountain course. We enjoyed watching both golfers & hickers from their spacious balcony. We used the movie room (high end audio/video equipment) as well. The location is great. It has two challenging but quite memorable golf courses designed by Jack Nicholas. The whole area is a great resort setting with very good restaurants within walking distance & just a short 25 minute drive to Victoria. Also found one of BC's first pubs just ten minutes away.
Will recommend this condo to all our freinds & will definitely return.
This is a wonderful condo. It is spacious, beautifully furnished and gorgeous. The kitchen has every appliance and gadget you could ever need along with lots of spices and condiments which is great for a short stay. Seeing deer on the golf course every day was an added bonus. I highly recommend this condo!!!
Thank you for sharing you wonderful condo with our family. We were very pleasantly surprised by the quality and size of the condo. It was well equipped with everything we needed, including the tennis equipment, which we made good use of. We had a wonderful and refreshing week and would highly recommend it to anyone.
