Please note: We are located on the quieter side of the building therefore you do not hear the noise of loud garbage and recycling trucks in the early mornings. We receive many long term guests who have very much enjoyed the suite and our well-maintained building and we are very pleased to see them return year after year. Welcome Snowbirds!

TOURISTS LOVE OUR LOCATION: You don't need a car, as we're just a couple minutes walk to the Inner Harbour, city attractions, Restaurants, Shops, Museums, Theaters, Pubs, Nightclubs, Bus depots, Ferries, Sea Planes, Beacon Hill Park, Activities, Spas, ...much more. Our building, the Astoria, is located in a safe, tourist-oriented location next to prestigious Hotels that do not allow loitering... such as: Chateau Victoria Hotel, Executive House Hotel, Marriot Victoria Inner Harbor, and just one block to the Fairmont Empress Hotel and Conference Centre. The Airporter Shuttle bus will drop you off at any of these locations. Chateau Victoria Hotel is our recommendation for drop off as it is right across the street. We have a very close view of the drop off area right from our living room and balcony. It leaves the Airport every 1/2 hour. We are happy to provide instructions.

Direct link to our popular 'Butchart Gardens' is right in front of our building. it's a quieter central area yet you're only steps away from the excitement of events and festivals all over the city and by the Inner Harbour.


'We spent a wonderful week in your excellent suite. It well exceeded our expectations. Strategically located, we discovered Victoria on foot and took our car only twice during our stay. We shall recommend your suite to any of our friends wanting to visit Victoria and we will come back on our next visit.' Francois and Elizabeth, Quebec, QC

'This home is wonderfully furnished and in a fantastic location. The owners also provide you with several special amenities that make you feel very welcome.'

I spent April in this condo...I was met by the owners after being dropped off by airport shuttle bus at Chateau Victoria across the street and shown around the building. Very secure...key fob needed for all doors and elevator. Welcoming bright lobby..two speedy elevators so never a wait. Condo has windows every favourite was right from bed..whole wall and a half was window...sunrises were beautiful. Condo has flatscreen tv in living room and bedroom, electric fireplace....washer and dryer in-suite so convenient, wi-fi. Though I didn't have a car, I had visitors drop by that did...the secure underground parking space was a bonus. Victoria is such a walkable, restaurants and shopping all close by. Great location, owners are available for any questions....a great stay in a beautiful city.

Loved the location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently spent 6 nights in the 12th floor condo in Astoria Building. The location was fantastic very close to many restaurants and the inner harbour. As mentioned by others this is a very secure place and lovely grounds; we used the parkade for a few days but did not need a car the whole time because of close walking distance to sites. We liked the idea of breakfasts and lunches in the condo and mostly went out for dinner as there are so many great eating places. Also enjoyed the balcony for sipping wine and enjoying the views. Bartholemew's British pub next door had good food and we attended one evening to hear a band playing classic rock tunes, nice to have live entertainment nearby. Others we liked were Nautical Nellie's, Red Fish, Blue Fish and Catalona. Janet, our host met us as planned and was very thorough ensuring we had a good tour of the premises. Would love to stay here again sometime in the future.

The best!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just spent 8 days in this suite, and it was better equipped than any place we have ever stayed. Janet and Dan have paid exceptional attention to detail. Since I did a lot of cooking while there, it was wonderful to find such a plethora of spices, staples, and condiments available. A variety of non-perishable food items (left by previous guests, I assume) was also appreciated. There was also no shortage of paper supplies or cleaning products.

We have been to Victoria many times, and this trip was intended mainly to work on computer projects without the interruptions and distractions at home. We were pleased to find that the wi-fi functioned flawlessly, and the environment of the suite was totally comfortable.

The location is wonderful, and Janet offered several useful suggestions for shopping, etc. My husband appreciated the opportunity to practice his pool game occasionally on the pristine table in the activity room off of the lobby.

Consider yourself lucky if this suite is available for the dates of your stay.

Another fabulous 6 week visit!

  • 5 of 5

We have now stayed in Janet and Dan's condo three times, so it now feels like our "second home". We loved it from our first visit, when we were warmly greeted by Janet and Dan, as we were with each visit.

It is very comfortable and is equipped with everything that we wanted/needed and more. Janet & Dan are very accommodating and always encourage us to let them know if there is anything else we might want.

The location is perfect and we really appreciate that the building is very secure as is the underground parking.

This condo is the best!! We highly recommend it. We are looking forward to our next visit!

Spent four months in this fabulous condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in unit 1402 of the Astoria. This condo was very well furnished. The kitchen was very well equipped with good quality dishes,cutlery,pots & pans, etc. The unit was very clean and is located in a very secure and quiet building. It is located right downtown, so we could walk to museums, art galleries, restaurants, etc. Janet and Dan are fantastic hosts and always responded quickly to any request. I would recommend this condo to all my friends and family.

Bus to Butchart Gardens across the street

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a nicer place to stay. The condo is very modern, clean, safe and quiet. The location is perfect! Everything is within walking distance. The Bus stop to the Butchart Gardens is just across the street - $5 round trip/person. It takes approx. 45 min from door to door. The Empress Hotel is just a very short walk away. It's worth the time to look inside. Shopping: Rogers' Chocolates, Murchie's Tea Store, Munroe's Book Store, Beadworld and Butchart Gardens gift shop, just to name a few. Thank you. we will definitely recommend
