Every item in this top floor unit was purchased in 2011 or since. As you enter the unit there is a small restroom on one side and a lovely kitchen with granite countertops with all of the equipment one would need. A personal favorite of the owners is the Griddler on which you can make Panini sandwiches, a steak, fish, etc. and, with the alternate cooking plates, have a flat griddle for pancakes and the like! The kitchen also features a dishwasher and microwave. The owners, who regularly rent similar units when they travel, have worked to outfit the unit with everything that they have wanted/needed in their travels. The living space has a good sized living room with a couch/hide-a-bed, a good reading chair, a 42 inch TV and a blue-ray player. There is Telus Optik as the satellite TV and internet service and yes, the unit has full WiFi. There is a step up from the living room to the dining room where you have a wood drop-leaf table that easily seats 6 and could seat more. Both the living room area and dining room area have large windows, as does the bedroom, which look toward the Olympic Mountain Range of which you have a partial view.
The bedroom's main feature is a queen size bed with a wonderful Temperpetik mattress. The bed has four drawers underneath and there are two nightstands which also have 2 drawers on both sides of the bed. Know that the interior of all of the closets have been professionally designed to maximize storage space. The owners have a storage area separate from the unit, so you will not be denied access to any area. The large ensuite bathroom provides all of the normal amenities. In a closet inside the bathroom are the washer and dryer. All 3 closets have been professionally designed and finished providing significant storage. The floors are wood throughout, with the exception of the bathroom floors, which are tile. There is a good sized private deck that you access from the living room. The deck has lounge chairs and a small table as well as a propane BBQ.
The Camden Green building has been awarded the Gold Standard for its construction and use of energy. Hot water and heating is done by a geothermal unit which means there will be plenty of hot water and for those cold days, the heat coming through the floor will keep your feet warm.
The owners have provided two notebooks for guests. One has the information on all appliances large and small, while the other provides an array of useful information on things from where to buy groceries, to sites to see the Parliament Building , Butchart Gardens, etc, to an array of outdoor activities from walking tours, to hiking, kayaking and the like, restaurant information and much more. There is also a section on what to do outside of Victoria on Vancouver Island.
This unit is the perfect location from which to plan your travels of Southern Vancouver Island or to use as a base of operations while working in the area. It is a great location, a new building with green living in mind, truly the Place to Stay!
