In the winter snuggle in the comfy condo, light the gas fireplace complete with a hand finished hearth and listen to music, read a book, watch the flat screened TV complete with 5:1 Surround Sound wiring.

About Carol Johnson

We love the coast and all that it offers. Even though we can't live there at this time, it never leaves us. We think our condo is in the perfect location to explore Victoria as well as to relax and to recharge. Because it is a gem of a place, we want to share it it with others. John is a construction superintendent and I just retired from teaching.

Carol Johnson purchased this Condo in 2010

Why Carol Johnson chose Downtown

The first time we walked down Swift street to the condo, we knew we had found something special. We had a view of the water which became even better once we entered our unit. It is spacious, bright and from the living room, we can forget time as we watch the activity in the water.front. When we want to leave our tranquil environment, we can walk to restaurants, shopping and trails.

What makes this Condo unique

We have a private rooftop garden with views of the Johnson Street Bridge, inner harbour and the waterway. Whether you view this from the rooftop or the condo, you will feel a calmness and a sense of peace. Enjoy the fresh fruit grown on the rooftop. We have strawberries, cherries and apples. The bright flowers add an abundance of colour and mixes well with the smell of the sea.

                                                          Patty F.

                                                          What a gorgeous condo! Amenities of an upscale 5 star hotel. Private rooftop deck is amazing perfect for morning coffee or evening star gazing. Bed was super comfy even for someone like me with a bad back. Located steps from all the attractions of Victoria's harbour front, leave the car in the secure parkade as you are literally steps away from shops, restaurants, walk along the harbour front or to fisherman wharf. Don't want to walk? No problem ... there is a harbor ferry dock right outside the condo (Chinatown dock) Make sure you download a ferry harbor map before you come. Super easy to get to from airport & very easy to access the rest of Victoria area. (Great golf, Bouchard Gardens, hiking in 600 year old forests etc all 15 min away) Condo has an onsite manager to greet you, get you settled and help should you have any problems. Can't thank you enough Carol for sharing your amazing home.

                                                          AMAZING PLACE!!!

                                                          Joanne P.

                                                          We absolutely loved this penthouse, everything in it was top notch more than we expected! The rooftop patio is private and has fantastic views of the water and city. You can walk everywhere from this place, there is also a water taxi stop outside the building and a restaurant across the street. The main hub of the harbour is about a 15 minute walk, Chinatown starts across the street, and there are more stores and restaurants than you could count all within a 15-20 minute walk. We arrived after a late day of travel and Charlotte was so accommodating and gave us the tour of the building, elevators, and anything else we

                                                          needed to know! There is a huge notebook in the apartment that has all the information you need, we were able to order take out from one of the Chinese restaurants our first night there because of this resource and it was delicious. If you want delicious quick seafood the fisherman's wharf has the best fried oysters I've ever had in my life, all the places are casual pick up windows with picnic tables outside. If I ever get back to Victoria I would love to stay here again, and highly recommend it to anyone else who vacations there. The owners were so nice, accommodating and helpful through the rental process, it was an excellent experience in every aspect!

                                                          My husband and I stayed here July 24-27. The condo is beautiful and the location was perfect. We walked almost everywhere. The rooftop patio was a great feature. We would definitely recommend staying here and can't wait to come back.

                                                          Fantastic location and amenities in charming Victoria

                                                          Virginia B.

                                                          This condo was absolutely perfect for our anniversary celebration! We loved the location--near to everything but not in the thick of it all. We didn't do much cooking, but had we wanted to the fully stocked kitchen would have made it a pleasure. The furniture and decor was as lovely as described, and the king-sized bed was oh-so comfortable. But, the crème de la crème was the private rooftop garden space. The plants were just on the verge of blooming, and I can only imagine how beautiful it is in the height of summer. Still, it was such a relaxing place to sit back, read, enjoy a glass of wine, and marvel at the beauty of Victoria. We hope to return again one day!

                                                          Take care and thanks for staying at our condo.

                                                          Location

                                                          Downtown, Victoria, BC, Canada

                                                          We hope you enjoy your stay in Victoria and your stay at our condo. From it you have views of the Inner Harbour, Olympic Mountains, Gorge Waterway and Chinatown. Boutiques, art galleries, shopping and restaurants galore are steps away. During the day, enjoy the bustle of the harbour, teaming with ferries, float planes and kayakers. In the evening, marvel at the brightly lit Parliament Buildings. In the summer take in the many festivals, the Sunday market, street performances and other cultural events. In the winter snuggle in the comfy condo, light the gas fireplace complete with a hand finished hearth and listen to music, read a book, watch a movie or TV. Historic Chinatown is steps away from the condo. Meander through Fantan Alley to learn about its significance. Enjoy a meal, buy fresh vegetables and fruit or browse through the many shops. Galloping Goose Trail is adjacent to the condo. This is an extensive trail system on which you can walk, run, bike, cycle or ride a horse. It follows the old railway line. Horse drawn carriages take you through the inner harbour past historic sites and places of interest. If you prefer, double decker busses are available to take you on sight seeing tours. The tours include trips to Butchart Gardens, wine tours and tours up island. The Harbour Island ferry can be caught at Mermaid Wharf. It takes you up the Gorge, Fisherman's Wharf and the Empress Hotel (to name a few). The Royal BC Museum and IMAX theater is always worth a visit. It houses the human and natural history of BC and brings in exhibits from other countries.
