About the property

Great Condo with 'Best of the Best' Views in the Heart of Downtown Victoria

This is one of downtown Victoria's best condos in one of Victoria's Inner Harbour's best buildings. The Astoria gets high praise from both owners and renters as a wonderful place to call home (even if for just a few nights).

It is but a stone's throw to Victoria’s bustling Inner Harbour. Easy walking to the Empress Hotel, Royal BC Museum, Parliament Buildings, harbour ferries & seaplane services, specialty shops, theatres, symphony, Fisherman's Wharf, Victoria's Bug Zoo, Beacon Hill Park (our favourite) and so much more. Downtown Victoria provides a huge number of wonderful cafes, bistros, pubs and restaurants.

Secure underground parking comes with your rental with us.

Being a southwest corner unit, Astoria Vista offers you views of historic Parliament Buildings, cruise ships coming & going, Juan de Fuca Strait & the snowy peaks of the Olympic Mountains and beyond. All of this from inside the condo looking through the expansive windows and also from the two balconies.

Inside, you will find the living areas and kitchen done in bamboo flooring and the bedrooms carpeted. The fully equipped kitchen has stainless steel appliances and many extras to ensure you have all that you need to create your next culinary masterpiece.

To save you time and money, the following amenities are provided: paper products (including paper towels and toilet paper), bags for waste, plastic wrap and foil, hand soaps, shampoo, dish and laundry soap, salt and pepper, sugar and oil too.

The living room has a large flat screen HDTV with an excellent cable package and a music library and high speed internet for your enjoyment. Oh, and for an extra great feature, if you are a Netflix addict like I am, the DVD player here will let you access your own Netflix account and watch away!

We know that most people travel with their own music playing device, so we have equipped this condo with a player so you can do just that. Comfortable furniture and a spacious feel draw you in to relax and enjoy the views. You've just got to sit in the big round spinning chair placed right in the window. It is amazing!

The master bedroom has a King Size bed, and a shower tub combination in the full ensuite bathroom. Windows in the master look to and through one balcony for 'to die for' views.

The second bedroom has a Queen size bed, a nice desk and (once again) wonderful views.

The second full bathroom has a stall shower, perfect for anyone with mobility challenges.

A secure underground Private Parking space is included in the rent.

The Astoria building has an amenities/lounge on the first floor with a billiards table and is great for a meeting place. The fitness room is adjacent to the amenities room for your workouts.

Important Notes:

As we are a Canadian company we deal in Canadian currency. VRBO defaults to US dollars. To see the Canadian equivalent please click View Details and then Continue Booking, on the right hand side of your screen.

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.

About Liz Van Cleave

We are Liz and Bruce of Victoria Prime Personal Property Management and we manage this property on behalf of the owners. You can learn all about us and even more about this property on our website.

Liz Van Cleave purchased this condo in 2010

Why Liz Van Cleave chose Downtown

There are only a certain number of properties with all of the features this one has. The views are the first reason, the quality and reputation of the Astoria building itself is the second, and the location is third. Shall I go on?

What makes this condo unique

Location, location!

If you have visited our website, you may have seen our Astoria Artistry unit. This condo has the same unique quality as that one because the owner is an artist and has decorated the condo with replications of her work. You can purchase and take home an original if you love it!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We celebrated a 50th anniversary visiting Victoria. All the restaurants Sharon recommended were terrific. Victoria is truly a walking city. The Fitbit came in handy and received a vigorous workout. The condo was a wonderful place to relax in and to enjoy the magnificent vista! The condo was a great place for us - thank you.

Home for Christmas

  • 5 of 5

Our family (2 adults + 2 littlies) had a wonderful & memorable time staying in Astoria Vista over Christmas. We booked several months in advance, and Liz & Maureen were in constant communication with us, which was very helpful & informative.

Once we arrived Sharon's warm & cheerful welcome in the front lobby was amazing (especially after 24hours of travel with 2 kids under 2). She also had the best tips for food & sights in the area. As a Victoria ex-pat, I know this is the best spot for anything & everything. Steps from the inner harbour, Beacon Hill & Cook St, really doesn't get much better! And the views are amazing to wake up to. Our 2 yr old would sneak into the lounge room, sit on the circle chair & watch all the "beautiful lights"!

The apartment had everything we needed to settle in straight away for our month long stay. It was warm and friendly. And having an underground parking spot in the middle of winter was extremely handy!

The beds were comfortable, the bathrooms & kitchen were spotless and the in suite laundry was new & reliable.

We'll definitely be returning to the Astoria Vista. The apartment was everything we could have asked for, but the amazing customer service & help from the team at Victoria Prime was definitely the cherry on top!

Great hideaway in the midst of everything!

  • 4 of 5

Great views, great personal space, two balconies. Security like a bunker! But appreciated, even if it seemed like overkill in a city that is apparently very safe! Couldn't get enough of the view. Appointments were very well thought out. Rules were a bit much, but manageable. Be aware, when two couples are sharing that the second bedroom is very small and the bathroom is through the living room and down the hall. There is one TV for all. There is no a/c which was not a problem for us, but with windows open all the time, it gets pretty noisy, especially about 5a when the trash trucks are working. Your neighbor is the JW Marriott, to help you with mapping. Easy walking to everything. Try 10 acres for a nice evening meal!

We would certainly stay again, we had a wonderful time.

Spring getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was such a stress free way to take a vacation! Victoria Prime answered our emails quickly and it was a pleasure to deal with them. The condo met all our needs and is exactly as described on the website. It is a perfect location, very clean, beds are comfortable. The kitchen is well appointed, parking is convenient. We walked to Beacon Hill Park, the harbour, shopping, great restaurants,and a great market for groceries. Sharon, our concierge was available to answer any questions and was extremely helpful. We would definitely stay here again!

Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful October visit to beautiful Victoria made all the better by our choice of accommodations. The condo at Astoria was clean, well appointed, very comfortable, super view, well located and just overall wonderful. Sharon, our contact with Victoria Prime, did an amazing job of making us comfortable in the condo and providing local knowledge for restaurants and other tips. Don't hesitate to choose Victoria Prime as its that personal service aspect you will never see from a standard hotel that makes this a much better choice.
