My husband and I love living in this historic yet modern Canadian city. We travel frequently but always relish returning to just right-sized Victoria allowing easy access to world class sites and experiences. We look forward to sharing with you what we know about Victoria and its many attractions.
The Owner purchased this condo in 2010
This location is second to none. In the historic portion of Victoria, it retains all the charm of yesteryear with its refurbished heritage buildings. Yet it is five minutes walk through cobblestone streets to the Inner Harbour and 2 blocks from the oldest Canadian Chinatown. Outside the doorstep are numerous award winning restaurants and the LoJo (Lower Johnson) design area filled with one of a kind shops.
The building is in the heart of all the downtown action, yet is quiet and serene when you step indoors. Quality finishing and thick brick walls envelop you while the 12 foot ceilings flood the space with south and west light. The terrace is a show stopper, adding over 800 very enjoyable square feet to the living space.
This condo on Johnston is a truly great place to stay. The location must be the best in Victoria, as everything you could possibly want to do or see is in walking distance.
The layout of the condo is very flexible, the kitchen is brand new with excellent stainless steel appliances and plenty of cutlery and crockery etc. There is also hook up to wi fi available.
The piece de resistance is the huge corner patio which has a gas fired BBQ, is a glorious sun trap, and means all the doors and windows can be open in the summer for fresh air, with absolute security.
The best thing this listing has going for it is the location and parking. It really couldn't be better if you want to walk the street and see the downtown and have a car.
Living room with couch and two comfy chairs are nice although the fireplace is not easy to operate and when it did light there was not full ignition of the gas flame . For this reason we would say it really doesn't work.
Listing this as a luxury property is definitely misleading. It appears the owners have not listened to the previous reviews as the same deficits still exist.
The bed in the master is an old queen mattress on a king bed frame. The bed is hard and sags and the over size frame makes it difficult to get in and out of as you always have to remember to gauge for the size difference when getting in or out. Pillows are not comfortable, linens are cheap and definitely not luxurious.The mattress cover is extremely stained which we would not have known about but as were were asked to strip the beds ( even though we paid an $85 cleaning fee) before we left we saw the condition of the linens. Yikes , awful.
The broom is so old that it is not useable as it's permanently bent over, tea kettle is gross. WORST of all the dishwasher is so loud it cannot be used while anyone is sleeping in either room OR when anyone is in the house. It's really like a train coming down the tracks and you have to yell over it! We could not use it.
There are no ceiling fans and when the sun comes out this place is HOT with no air circulation. They do supply a dinky floor fan .....really?
The second bedroom is an office with a bed in it, no counters , closet or table, advertised as an accommodation that sleeps four, but really not private enough for two couples as there is only a half bath on the other side of the apartment for the second bedroom. It would be ok for a couple of kids.
All in all it seems like what is in the apartment are a mix mash of things just barely good enough for a students use in college and the other items seem to be left over from other tenant's occupancy. We only had 1& 1/2 rolls of toilet paper for our 5 night stay.
There is a only a small bistro table and having a meal on it is neither comfortable or roomy enough especially if you were an older person.
The amenities make this property just a good choice verses the truly excellent choice it could be with very little effort made !
Beware of really loud seagulls early in the AM !
We had a 3 night stay in Victoria and this was the perfect location. It was a lovely place to stay - modern, clean, great facilities. Tania was very helpful and met us as the property. We would highly recommend this property and would stay here again!
I stayed all the month of March 2016 in this apartment and enjoyed it very much. It is perfectly located, full of light, clean, well furnished and I have appreciated the fireplace very much.
The mattress in the bedroom should be verified as half of it seems to have been used more than the second half. Maybe it is because there was no rotation done.
The only noise that woke me up early in the morning was from the seagulls. Those birds are very big! Of course, they leave their business card, but there is nothing you can do against that. For this reason, I would recommend to the owner to put a parasol for the outside table for the guests who come during the summer. It is so sunny that I think there is a need for that if you eat outside.
During my stay, I noticed that the electric heating was not working except for one or two baseboards. I mentionned it to the owner before leaving. I used the fireplace to heat and give a nice atmosphere to the living room.
At the end of my stay, it became quite hot in the apartment so I had to shut all the blinds to prevent the sun from entering the apartment.
The security in the building is perfect.
I would definitely go back.
What a fantastic find! The condo was warm and inviting, yet modern and most of all...Clean. It has high ceilings and abundance of natural light coming through the large number of windows. Extremely large private outdoor space that was easily assessable from each room. Great floor plan, cozy gas fireplace, well stocked with kitchen supplies, books, and games. Shops and wonderful restaurants are literally just outside the building (that felt safe a secure)!
It was very easy to get in touch with Eileen via emails and phone calls, and she was super sweet and super accommodating to us!!
We look forward to coming back to this home away from home!
My wife and I wanted a few days in Victoria around the Christmas Holiday season and this apartment hit all the right buttons for us. From the gated off-street parking, to the secure entry, the layout, and the view it was a wonderful place to stay. Admittedly it was winter time so we didn't get to use the terrace much, but I could certainly see how that would be an amazing living space during the summer months! We were within walking distance of dozens of restaurants, and even more retail shops. The waterfront is 4 blocks away, so we didn't have to drive all that much unless we wanted to see more than just downtown Victoria.
The owners couldn't have been more accommodating or welcoming. It was a pleasure dealing with them. When we come back to Victoria we will most assuredly be checking this on for availability right off before looking elsewhere. We recommend this one very highly.
An excellently appointed apartment right in downtown Victoria. Comfortable beds, well appointed kitchen, rooftop deck with views over the city, handy to shops and restaurants and the harbour. All you need for a fantastic stay in Victoria. Very welcoming and helpful hosts. Highly recommended.
