About the property

Family Holiday Retreat, A True Destination Location

Booking a property through Victoria Prime ensures you get the highest quality property for the best value and nobody beats our customer service. Start with Liz and Maureen who personally work with you to make sure you find the right property for your specific needs or wants. Send us your wish list; we know all of the properties personally and can steer you in the right direction.

We make the booking process easy and secure, no hassles or worries. You can book online through our secure website and see all about us, our properties and services; or just give us a call and we will book for you on the phone.

Please Note: VRBO is now quoting in US dollars as the default currency, email us for a proper bookable quote link. You can also go to the Rates page on VRBO and at the top right hand corner you will see a drop down that will allow you to see the rates in the currency of your choice. As we are in Canada, our rates are set in Canadian Dollars. In any case, the settlement will occur on your credit card in your currency and the exchange rate given will depend on the policies of your bank.

After booking, you will be introduced to one of the members of our wonderful concierge team, who will answer all of your questions, and working with you to arrange a time to meet and greet you at the property so they can offer a proper building and unit orientation, make sure you know how to use everything and know the best places to go.

We hope you will let us show you what customer service is all about. It is the fun part for us after all.

(Note: Due to recent changes made by VRBO, our GUEST REVIEWS written into our guest books we have in our properties, have been moved to the MANAGER INFO tab right next to Photos. We at Victoria Prime greatly appreciate any and all feedback from our guests, but do not like to hound people to write a review online if they are not comfortable with that process. We find most of our guests enjoy sharing their experiences while relaxing in the condo after a fun filled day or they often respond to our thank you email and share their experiences then. We post them all, even if they are imperfect. We hope you will have a look.)

Sea It All has it all!

The pictures say it better than I can, but I just want to highlight what a special rental offering this is.

First of all, location, location , location! Walking distance to everything, markets, downtown, restaurants, parks and more, plus you are on the water with the grandeur of The Olympic Mountains a the back drop. Wow!

I field hundreds of rental requests a year and there are certain traits that everyone is looking for in a rental. Views is my number one requested trait, a convenient location is second, and a spacious rental is third. This is the dream list.

Sea It All has all of these traits in spades plus so much more.

All Victoria Prime properties start with a standard above the rest, all inclusive, with high speed wifi, cable, parking, gourmet kitchen standards and kitchen essentials to boot, and don't forget all units have in suite washer and dryers. You will want to wash those clothes after playing on the beach and splashing in the water just across the street from Sea It All.

As you enter the door, you are immediately drawn to the ocean at the end of the room, but on the way there, you will encounter a gorgeous office with a TV, the gourmet kitchen with granite and stainless steel appliances, a half bath and a lovely open dining area and a living room overlooking the Olympic Mountains and the ocean.

One floor up is the master bedroom with a King bed, super spacious, with a fireplace, TV and a huge balcony with doors that open up all of the way to let the magical views and fresh sea air and sounds in. The master bath has a separate stall shower and a jacuzzi soaker tub.

The ground floor has a full bedroom with Queen bed, a full bath and a huge multi-purpose room with a pullout couch and a futon. It's a great place for the kids with a TV and DVD player, or it can be a media room for the adults.

This house is ideal for two couples travelling with kids. It sleeps four in beds and has the two extra sleeping spaces for the kids in the multi purpose room.

Come spend the perfect week at Sea It All. One week minimum is required.

FULL MONTH rentals for January and February.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay for the month of April was fantastic! The weather was beautiful and we loved being able to walk to restaurants and shopping--especially the grocery store. The James Bay area is so interesting with all the old houses and I don't think we ever walked the same street twice. We spent many breakfasts and evenings in the front window watching all the people and dogs and ships, when we weren't out there ourselves. I agree with the comment someone else made about the lack of screens, though we did notice some under the front step and it was tempting to try them out! Even a couple of fans would help to move the air around when it gets warmer. The amount of space was perfect for 3, especially the main floor, and my husband loved the office area. The "Victoria Prime" people were very nice--we dealt with Arden--and were always prompt when we had any problems--thankfully, no major ones! We'd love to stay at this property again and would find even a longer stay enjoyable.

Best location in town!

  • 4 of 5

All the reviews are correct about this place, best location for sea views, seaside walks and ship sighting. Off street parking is provided, the office was a great plus for one of our party who does online teaching, and the kitchen was ideal for meal prep. The only reason for not a five star rating was the stairs, which were a bit much for older knees, especially since we all took turns using the only walk in shower on the top floor. Also, the outdoor chairs on the main floor were too uncomfortable and took a while to dry when it rained. (We looked enviously at the chairs on the next balcony). Lots of privacy if you stay with another couple, they would have a whole floor to themselves, and the TV room on the ground floor was great for gatherings. Kudos to Bruce for showing us around and helping with the bags!

Location, location, location! And the view!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

If Victoria was a jewelry than this house would be the beautiful diamond ring sitting in a picture window facing the ocean. Seriously, if you want to experience all of Victoria, the view across the ocean every morning, the smell and sounds of the waves, and the impressive sights of the majestic incoming cruise ships by day and even more glamorous at night, the closeness to downtown, to stores, shops, parks, ocean trails, to the beautiful illuminated parliament building and Empress Hotel, this is the nicest house in the best location you can imagine.

The house itself is very tastefully decorated in a way that I want to throw out my own wooden dining furniture and replace them with those contemporary glass and steel tables. I loved that there was no TV set in the living and dining room area (there is a large flat screen TV in the entertainment room with a super comfy couch that also can be converted into a queen size bed) because we were able to enjoy the beauty of the setting without the distraction of a TV. There is nothing compared to waking up to the sounds of the waves and the fresh smell of the ocean every morning. The view, again, is incredible and the pictures don’t do it justice.

The house has all the amenities you can imagine, TV, Wi-Fi, an office with computer monitor and printer, telephone, games, books and puzzles, plenty of fluffy towels, linen, each floor has a bathroom, and the master bathroom features a jetted tub which was very welcome after a long walk along the breezy ocean. The kitchen is well equipped and all kinds of necessities are provided (like soap, trash can liners, condiments, spices etc which I really appreciated after experiencing homes where we had to buy all those things). I wish all the properties offered on VRBO where managed by Bruce and his company “Victoria Prime” :) . Whenever we had a question he responded right away and was there if we needed help to solve some technical difficulty.

I can’t believe how fast our stay in Victoria went by. We already miss the sights of the ocean and this vibrant city. We will come back for sure! Thank you Bruce, Liz and Maureen for making our stay so pleasant and enjoyable.

We enjoyed every minute!

  • 5 of 5

The location on the water and central to downtown Victoria was priceless. In addition to that we had 3 levels of living, from 3rd floor balcony full water views to a basement level (above ground) that was rec room style for the family! It was very clean, well situated with amenities and easy to locate. One thing that could enhance this would be screens on the windows and patios for bugs, as there is no AC or fans, opening the windows is a must to get the cool ocean breezes, it is also one of the best parts of this location, the sound of rolling waves... heaven! And a TV on the main level that children can use while cooking etc. woild be helpful. We would love to come back and rent again. Thank you so much for enhancing our experience in Victoria.

Had great week with some family and grandchildren. Location is great as within walking distance to many different options, ocean, beaches, groceries, downtown etc... A busy, active area with many people out and about but surprisingly a quiet condo to stay in. Great upper deck for relaxing and a very bright and sunny home. We will likely be back but not quite large enough for more of the family to join us.
