IN THE HEART OF VICTORIA'S HISTORIC OLD TOWN AND CHINATOWN AREA

Victoria Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom with pull-out sofa bed. Looks out over inner courtyard garden.

Victoria’s beloved “Blue Bridge” was the inspiration for this one-bedroom vacation rental suite in the historic Old Town area of Victoria.

Located in the newly-built Union Building, which spans the entire block between Victoria’s Chinatown and Victoria’s historic Old Town areas, it is close to the site of the original Johnson Street Bridge (the Blue Bridge) which was designed by Joseph Strauss, who also designed San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge.

This iconic landmark served Victoria for 90 years and became a symbol of our city’s connection with the neighbouring community of Esquimalt. Now it is to be replaced by a new, more efficient and safer bridge, but the memories of the Blue Bridge will always be preserved in the finishing and décor of the Victoria Landmark Suite, as you enjoy your stay in this fabulous vacation rental apartment in downtown Victoria.

We have prepared the Victoria Landmark Suite so you can enjoy your vacation rental in Victoria as a “home away from home” with maximum comfort during your visit to British Columbia’s Capital City.

We have furnished your short-term rental apartment with modern appliances, the best of bedding. In addition, your living and dining room furnishings are of the highest quality, which will provide you with comfort in your surroundings.

• Contemporary wide-plank laminate flooring, porcelain tile, quartz slab countertops, and polished chrome and brushed nickel hardware lend an air of sleekness throughout.

Steve or Trish purchased this condo in 2014

Why Steve or Trish chose Victoria

Wow, what a great location, straddling a whole block between historic Old Town Victoria and Canada's oldest Chinatown, one block from the main tourist area, just two blocks from the Victoria Public Market and two blocks from Victoria's central business district. You will never tire of staying in this location, there is so much to see and do. But...at the same time, the apartment faces over an inner courtyard, so you are away from the noise of the street traffic.

This is a brand-new building, just completed in 2014 and the features are superb with secure, gated parking, secure access entryways, elevator service to all 5 floors and a wonderful use of space inside the apartment.

The design of the Union Building, in which the Victoria Landmark Suite is located, is superbly designed and build and fits right in to the local historic architecture.

What makes this condo unique

Easy access to so many activities and experiences. Exploring Chinatown, shopping in Market Square and the Lo Jo Fashion District, close to Harbour Ferries and Water Taxi services, close to the Victoria Public Market where you'll find fresh fruits, vegetables, breads, meats and seafoods.

Mom and Daughter Trip… 10/10 on everything!

  • 5 of 5
On short notice, my daughter and I planned a trip to Victoria . I was fortunate to make an inquiry on this property as I heard back from the manger, Steve , almost immediately. He was very helpful, kind and thorough which made our stay flawless.The suite was new, clean, bright and quiet. My daughter slept in the bedroom and I sept on the pull out couch which was as comfortable as a bed.The building and parking are secured so coming in and out is easy at all times.The location is fantastic as it has so much to offer and walking to the inner harbour is a short 10 minute walk away.The building entrance opens into China town which has a remarkable history. We highly recommend the China Town walking tour. We rented a car to travel outside of Victoria but otherwise a car is not needed in this location. Would we rebook this suite again? Absolutely! Thank-you to Steve, Trish and Susan.
