Overview

About the property

Almost Double Ensuites / Bedrooms on Opposite Ends of Condo

1403 West is a place to remember. It’s a Victoria sanctuary where you can enjoy a morning cup of coffee or romantic glass of wine while watching seagulls soar by at eye level.

Located in the vibrant, and wonderfully walkable downtown Victoria, you are close to all the places people come to Victoria to experience and enjoy. 1403 West’s space is relaxing and inviting, contemporary yet warm, comfortable, and not at all pretentious where you wake up to views of the city, the inner harbour and distant mountain vistas.

In the evenings, the 14th floor panorama offers you sunsets year-round from inside the 8-foot high glass “4th wall” with its north to west to south views as well as from the spacious 460 square foot wrap around outdoor deck with its refreshing breezes. So, whether you are an early riser watching the sunrise’s light wake-up Victoria, or you prefer sleeping in, relaxing, and being as leisurely as you like, the views from 1403 West are spectacular day and night.

This secure location with its easy to access underground, double gated parking is perfect for 2 or 4 guests. Your ample parking space is just outside the door to the elevators, which makes transferring your luggage to the 14th floor a breeze.

1403 West is conveniently located close to Victoria’s fabulous restaurants, markets, sports/concert arena, Chinatown, the inner harbour, government buildings, Imax, Beacon Hill park, the Galloping Goose Trail as well as the other attractions for which the capitol city of British Columbia is known.

Whether you are vegan, gluten-free or regular diner, your biggest dilemma, however, may be deciding which of Victoria’s fabulous restaurants you can get around to in just a week’s time. Of course, you are welcome to stay with us for two weeks to simplify your task. (http://www.tourismvictoria.com/things-to-do/restaurants/).

If you decide to stay in for breakfast, make it in your well-stocked kitchen while looking out at the inner harbour, and the coastal range mountains listening to your favourite music playing in the entertainment centre. The public market and Yates Street markets are within short walking distances, and can provide all your culinary needs with much to choose from for you vegans and gluten-free folks too. Or if you prefer, take the elevator downstairs to the locally owned Macchiato Caffe & Paninoteca (macchiatocaffe.ca) where you can get freshly baked pastries, bread, bagels, coffee, teas, juice, ciders or a London Fog to help get your morning started.

For you runners, hikers and bikers, explore the Goose, the world class Galloping Goose Trail (http://www.gallopinggoosetrail.com/), which begins just a few blocks away at the Johnson Street Bridge. It offers 60 km of fantastic sights along the meandering trail from coastal waters to forest.

Bike rentals are available in Victoria from May to the early part of October. Bring your saddle and pedals to personalize the rental bikes. And be sure to make your arrangements before arrival. If you choose to bring your own bike, please check with Victoria Prime for convenient bike storage as bikes are not allowed in the building.

And for you water sport enthusiasts, kayaking and canoeing opportunities abound. From coastal kayaking the Juan de Fuca Strait with its whales and orcas to the Haro Strait and to the calmer experience of inner harbour and the Gorge Waterway, there are no shortages of experiences awaiting you. (http://www.hellobc.com/victoria/things-to-do/water-activities/kayaking-canoeing.aspx).

If you are walkers, Beacon Hill Park is for you. A beautiful park with ponds, flowers, peacocks, ducks, and deer on occasion, Beacon Hill has miles of paths. This urban jewel is just a short walk away. Be sure to bring your camera as the park abounds with picturesque photo opportunities year-round.

In addition, there are wonderful and spectacular golf courses to choose from around Victoria. In fact, you can see 1403 West from the Bear Mountain course. (http://golfvancouverisland.ca/vancouver-island-golf-courses/)

And the wonders of Victoria don’t stop with autumn. Vancouver Island is known for the mildest climate in Canada. 1403 West offers you a warm and cozy get-away from the harshness of East Coast winters. (http://livinginvictoriabc.com/general-info/victoria-bc-has-the-mildest-climate-in-canada).

1403 West is a bright, airy, quiet, romantic and private 14th floor experience that is just a click away. Local managers personally meet you and walk you through the property to show you how everything works and will help you with all of your planning needs and offer concierge services as well. We look forward to your stay with us. Please check availability in the Instant Quote box for your dates.

Welcome to Victoria, the shining crown of Canada’s west coast.

Important Notes:

Bike storage can be a tricky issue. Every building has a different bike storage policy and there are no guarantees that spots will be available. Every building has a zero tolerance for bikes in the lobbies or elevators, fines will be issued for such. If you are bringing a bicycle, please check beforehand for bike storage options. We recommend renting bikes while you are here, many of the bike rental companies will allow them to be stored there at the end of the day even if you rent them for a week.

If you have a large vehicle, please be sure and check the garage clearance for the building to make sure your vehicle will fit.

Please see Amenities for more specifics related to this property.

Why Liz Van Cleave chose Victoria

The Juliet building is perfectly located to be close enough to all that downtown offers, yet far enough to escape the noise that often goes with Inner Harbour events.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We really enjoyed our stay in the condo! Waking up to the fantastic views every morning was a great way to start the day! Our first visit to Victoria was awesome and we were lucky to have perfect weather for the entire visit.

Fabulous condo close to all the fun in Victoria

  • 5 of 5

I can't imagine a better place to stay in Victoria! This 2 bedroom condo is set up perfectly to afford privacy with its split bedroom plan. It is beautifully and tastefully decorated with recliners in the living space positioned for the spectacular view over the wrap around balcony. Dani met us on arrival and filled us in on all the details of the condo as well as recommendations for what to do and where to eat. We were there for Canada Day 150 which was a huge fun celabration. Our balcony was the perfect place to view the spectacular fireworks display. Victoria is just so much fun and a walkable city to explore. Thank you for the opportunity to stay in this wonderful condo in a delightful city!

Really are best views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for the month of May 2016 (and the month of April 2015) and loved this condo. It is in an excellent location and the views really are spectacular. We walked most places including Fishermans Wharf and Beacon Hill Park. The concierge team of Lawrence and Dani were great too. From helping us with bringing our bags from the (safe) underground parking to recommending places to see and eat!

We'll be back!

Definitely a five star accommodation!! Best views for sure.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this condo for a month in October/November and absolutely loved it!!! The view from the condo was amazing, even at night. The building is very secure which makes you feel safe. It is close to shopping, many restaurants and attractions. It was clean and fully equipped. Would stay again.

Relaxing May Long Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay in this very pretty, clean, comfortable condo. The views are spectacular, especially the evening arrivals of the float planes into the inner harbour. Lawrence is a fabulous host. We will happily return and again and would highly recommend this unit to others.

Gorgeous

  • 5 of 5

The booking was so easy and the condo was exactly as pictured. The view was even better than the pictures show. At lease 10 ft. high windows so light streams in. From the condo and huge balcony, you can see the inner harbour and watch float planes take off and land. You can see boats zipping around the harbour too.

It is only a short 7 minute walk to the harbour and 20 minutes to walk to Beacon Hill Park. Restaurants and bars, grocery and clothing store within minutes. We parked our car in the underground garage and hardly used it the month we were there.

The condo is well stocked even for four people with plenty of wine glasses! The two bedrooms are at each end of the condo so pefect for two couples sharing. The roof top terrace has 360 deg. views of the entire city plus two BBQs! Lawrence the concierge was great. He was so helpful and accommodating and supplied us with lots of info about city sights and events.

Perfect. We will definitely be back.
