Great views of a working harbour
The City Harbourside Suite is located overlooking Victoria's busy Upper Harbour Area, where there's always something going on. It's great for watching tugboats come and go, sailboats, rowing boats, kayakers and canoeists, as they play on the sheltered waters.
Right at your doorstep is a Harbour Ferry Stop and a seasonal Water Taxi service that will quickly sail you to the Inner Harbour or, anywhere else around the harbour you may want to go, such as Fisherman’s Wharf, Point Ellice House, the reversing falls on the Gorge Waterway or the West Bay Marina.
Next-door is The Canoe Club that has it's own Micro Brewery and make some very tasty ales. In the summer you can dine on their waterfront terrace, enjoying the afternoon sun while sipping on your favourite beverage or enjoying a delicious meal from their menu.
On Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, head over to the Canoe Club for the best live music in town, it's a whole lot of fun and it's just a stones throw away. (Don't worry about disturbing your sleep patterns, they close down at midnight, have noise level rules.)
So 'go with the flow' and enjoy the ambience and the fun.
Head one block up the street and you’re in Canada’s oldest Chinatown, where you’ll find many unique shops and restaurants. Explore the “secret” alleyways, like Fan Tan Alley and Dragon Alley or shop for Asian curios and foods or locally-grown and imported produce.
Just around the corner is Victoria’s historic Old Town area, where you can visit Market Square to browse the shops or enjoy a musical concert. This is also the location of the “Lo Jo Fashion Area” the home of many locally-owned and operated boutique fashion emporiums.
A few minutes away you'll find all kinds of things to do; such as whale watching adventures, deep sea fishing, walking and cycling trails, beaches, gardens and parks, historic buildings, walking and bus tours, wineries and vineyards, organic farms, forests to take your breath away and mountains you can climb to see incredible views.
Steve and Trish own and/or manage 6 vacation rental apartments in downtown Victoria. We have traveled to many places in the world and love meeting new people and making new friends. We hope you will be one of them.
The tremendous location, close to the Harbour Ferry Stop, across from the Canoe Club (great food, micro brewery), a few minutes walk to Chinatown and Old Town, make this the perfect location for visitors.
You're never more than a short walk from sightseeing, many attractions, restaurants, shopping, banks, cafes, theatres. You are, in fact, in the heart of everything that makes downtown Victoria such a great place to be.
