Restored heritage buildings in Canada's oldest Chinatown
One bedroom, pet friendly, condo with all the amenities, located walking distance to everything downtown Victoria has to offer. In Canada's oldest Chinatown's you can stay in the heart of it all, while still having your privacy. Will sleep four between a one (queen sized) bedroom condo with a pullout (double bed) couch in living room, but, best suited for two people (especially for a longer stay). Newly restored back to its original use and situated between Pandora St and Fisgard St, only steps to the best coffee shop in town ("Bean Around the World" of course). Private patio off the bedroom gives guests some greenery via an urban garden and a serene spot to enjoy a morning coffee or a late night cocktail. Our home is equipped with everything you'll need for a short vacation, or a longer stay, including washer and dryer.
Take a stroll around the neighbourhood and enjoy local and international cuisine! Victoria is second only to San Fransisco for highest number of resturants per capita in North America, and you'll be staying right in the middle of it. Rather eat in? Grab fresh produce and local meat from neighbouring markets and prepare it in our fully stocked kitchen, equipped with full sized oven and stovetop, crockpot, microwave, blender etc. Clean up is easy with dishwasher to help.
Though there is no parking included, the condo has ample street parking and a Robbins parking lot across the street. Though we recommend the city parkade located within a block up Fisgard St or even better, leave your vehicle at home!! The Clipper ferry is about a 30min walk (with luggage) or a $6 cab fare, Harbour Air is about 15 min walk. Flying in, or ferry from Vancouver? can cab or bus!! Once here make use of Victoria's diverse transport with transit system, shuttles, taxicabs, varying types of tours and tour buses, kabuki cabs, horse drawn carriages and even water taxis around the inner harbour. Every day there are 100 aircrafts and 1073 vessel movements through the inner habour! You also have use of our two pedal bikes as you can't visit the cycling capital of Canada without bikes, so enjoy ours! A great way to see a bit more of the city while still being able to leave your vehicle at home. Bikes come with locks and helmets, and Victoria recently installed bike lanes to make it easier and safer to navigate the streets. We recommend a ride down along the harbour and on to the beauty of Dallas road.❤️
Neighbouring buildings house pubs, liquor store, convenience store, shopping, restaurants (including breakfast joints, sushi, Vietnamese, of course Chinese cuisine, etc), McPherson Theatre, two brew pubs (Swan's and Canoe Club)... and that's just within one block radius!
Whatever adventure is bringing you to Victoria, you can rest assure that your stay in this cozy historical gem of a condo will only enhance it.

Born and raised on Vancouver Island (one of us immigrated from outskirts of Calgary). Love Victoria and Vancouver Island to satisfy all the outdoor activites one could desire to do. We have a large dog and a little baby:)
Owner purchased this Condo in 2017
Why Owner chose Downtown
We used to rent a flat in this heritage building for 10 years, and only moved out because they kicked us out to do renovations and change into condos. We knew we had to purchase here to keep a piece of Chinatown and the place our family together began and where it grew. We are so happy we did. Though not the same place we started, this condo is light and airy and private, just perfect

Amazing condo with an unbeatable location!
We really enjoyed our stay at this lovely, memorable property. The condo was clean and bright and in a fabulously convenient location. The owners were very helpful and very responsive. We'd stay here again in a minute! Thank you!
Thank you for the great review! And thank you for being such clean and awesome guests !!!
Great location - they have thought of everything
This was the most adorable property. Very clean and thoughtfully laid out with everything you need for a comfortable stay. We spent 6 nights and loved it. The location was walking distance to many things, including public transportation which we used to travel to Schwartz Bay and Butchart Gardens. Lots of great places to eat close by. I highly recommend Jam for a wonderful breakfast experience and Drakes for beers and small bites. The La Tana bakery has amazing Italian breads and sandwiches. We were celebrating a milestone anniversary and Jason recommended a fabulous restaurant, Brassiere LEcole, located only a block away. I had occasion to ask a couple questions and he responded promptly. We would return for sure and definitely recommend it to others.
Thanks so much for the lovely review! We are so happy you enjoyed our home! (And wanted to mention it’s Molly (and Jacob), no Jason hehe, no biggie, just wanted to clarify to avoid any confusion :)
Lovely, cozy, convenient -EXCELLENT Choice!
We really enjoyed our stay at the Lamb's apartment in Chinatown. It is very well appointed, and the bed was quite comfortable. A great feature is that you step on the door, 5 steps across the walkway, and then you are in a great coffee shop. The dim sum at Don Mee, 50 yards away, made for a delightful brunch. Easy walking to so many great places, close to the bay/inlet. And it was only a 15 minute walk from the Black Ball Ferry terminal. You can't go wrong with this most comfortable location. The only minor drawback is that the TV does not access cable/air stations, so you cannot easily get the local news, or other programming; though you can access Netflix and other internet options.
We will definitely stay here again!
Thanks so much for the lovely review, and so glad you enjoyed your stay!! We’ve thought about adding TV/cable! Thanks for input :)
The apartments location is perfect, you can walk to anything and everything! There is free public parking in the parking garage up the street from 6pm-8am. There are lovely shops and restaurants all around. The apartment itself is perfect. The kitchen had everything we needed, the bathroom was clean, the bed was comfy, washer and dryer were perfect, and the access to netflix was perfect for movie nights. Thank you!!
We stayed for just one evening, but found everything we wanted within the same block as the condo! Thanks for a lovely stay. We would definitely recommend this place for others.
Well located intimate flat in heart of Chinatown
The Lambs' condo in Chinatown is wonderfully located and immaculately kept. The size and accommodations were very intimate but functional for our brief time in a city we love. Great access to everything that matters!
