EXCLUSIVE TWO STOREY HERITAGE PENTHOUSE IN THE HEART OF VICTORIA

Victoria Condo Rental Photos and Description

1273 Sq Ft Suite, Plus 800 Sq Ft Private Roof Terrace & Garden.

One block from the inner harbour, on Government Street, in the heart of the tourism district and walking distance to a wide variety of fine restaurants, is where you will find this exclusive penthouse.

The spacious two storey condo is a stylish heritage conversion perfectly located in the heart of old-town Victoria. What sets this meticulously restored building apart is that it meets modern building requirements, yet preserving one of Victoria’s heritage treasures, the famous 122 year old Victoria hotel. Originally built in 1892 as a first class hotel designed by architect Thomas Hooper, it is now named Vogue and is the perfect blend of modern facilities with the romance and magic of old-world design.

Located at one of the hippest intersections in the city's commercial core, the rows of storefront and upper storey windows of this building provides an intermediate connection between the historic Old Town and Chinatown.

The private, beautifully landscaped, 800 sq ft roof terrace and garden overlooks the popular intersection of Government and Johnston streets. This gem is truly one of a kind!

Its unique heritage features are exquisitely blended with all the modern comforts.

• Two spacious bedrooms, two bathrooms

• 13 foot ceilings with 8ft tall original sash windows, facing south and east that ensure maximum sunlight.

• Original red brick walls and 18” by 12” douglas fir beams.

• Fireplace.

• The suite is 1273 sq ft, plus the 800 sq ft roof terrace and garden.

Why owner/manager chose Victoria

Carole and I have a special love for Victoria. Our penthouse reflects the ideal location & heritage value in the heart of Old Town, within walking distance of all the great spots.

What makes this condo unique

Our distinctive 1273 sq ft unit is located on the top floor of a dominant three storey heritage building in one of the most beautiful cities in the World.

The 800 sq ft private roof terrace and garden with its wooden planters, flower pots and 'camp fire style' natural gas heater, overlooks the intersection of Johnson and Government streets, one of the busiest intersections in the city's commercial core.

The 13 ft ceilings, original red brick interior walls and huge 18” by 12” douglas fir (original) beams make it very special.

This in one of the best properties we have rented in many years, its exactly as described in the details, although the pictures do not do it justice. Its ldeally located everything is within walking distance, the property is well looked after and sparklingly clean, the roof terrace is fantastic we used the fire pit on a few ocassion and spent many a great evening enjoying a glass of wine. Heather and Tim were very helpful recommending places to go and assisting with any details we needed. I would highly recoemmend this property and know for certain we will be coming back!

Even better than expected!

  • 5 of 5
This apartment was absolutely beautify (I imagine due, in part, to the artist owner)l, with a hip urban vibe (exposed brick and wood beams). In addition, it was absolutely modern and functional, comfortable, and very clean. It felt larger to me than the photos suggested. The location was wonderful: we could walk everywhere (no need for a car - the tour buses are so easy and frequent to Butchart Gardens, for example). Very convenient to have the property managers, Heather and Tim, living down the hall. If I had to suggest anything for improvements, it might be that the t.v. remote be easier to use (we barely watched t.v. - too much to do) and that the futon in upper small room be stabilized - my son didn't want to sleep there because it wobbled around - but one could definitely sleep there). Seagulls very noisy in morning, but this is just a charm of harbor living, and these minor nitpicks that wouldn't keep me from recommending this place 100%. If we return to Victoria, I will definitely book here again - it was truly one of my favorite things about our three nights in Victoria.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your review and useful comments Ruth, it’s feedback like these that make us improve the guest experience. The remote controls the TV, PVR and the Bose sound system and can be a tad difficult to use but Tim/Heather take the time to explain how it works to each of our guests.

We look forward to hosting you on your next visit.

Thanks again!

Highly recommend this property!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great stay. The condo exceeded our expectations from the pictures, it was clean and well maintained with very comfortable beds. We felt at home right away and especially enjoyed the roof-top deck. The location was perfect for downtown shopping, with opportunities for lots of scenic waterview walks.

Great location and fabulous property.

  • 5 of 5
We really loved this home. The location was great, the property was beautiful and the roof top deck was fantastic. Victoria is a lovely city to stroll around and we had the perfect location from which to do that. The managers were friendly and helpful and made sure that the suite was well stocked. We couldn't have wished for anything better. We would definitely stay here again and will recommend it to our friends.
