Overview

Victoria Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Enjoy the charm of "Old Town Victoria" in the convenience of a newly renovated modern waterfront condominium, situated on Victoria's beautiful Inner Harbour. View the harbour activity and the beautiful sunsets over the Olympic Mountain range from your bright and airy living room or the private roof top patio.

Imagine a holiday where you sip your morning coffee while you watch the boats come and go. Take a leisurely walk to enjoy Victoria's fine restaurants, pubs, antique shops, quaint book stores and leave your car in its designated secure indoor parking stall because everything is within walking distance and you can now have that glass of wine.

Enjoy your evening barbeque while watching the sunset from your private roof top patio. Want dessert or a change of scenery... take a water taxi (located outside the buildings front door) and explore the other side of the harbour, which includes Fisherman's Wharf and many other treasures.

The security in this building is second to none so you can enjoy total peace of mind. Upon arrival and departure you will be personally greeted by our property manager at the condo, allowing more time for your many vacation activities, located just outside your doorstep.

This truly is a remarkable location and a holiday meant for total relaxation.

Why Alistair & Charlene Sim chose Victoria

Fabulous location. Able to walk everywhere.

What makes this condo unique

Private rooftop patio overlooking working harbour.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"The condo was beautifully designed, warm, inviting, clean and spacious. We thought the platform bed was very clever, in addition to providing storage space. My mom quickly made good use of all the drawers and baskets.

We all commented and enjoyed the easy floor plan layout (easy to maneuver within the space, which is a challenge with three women & luggage). Your attention to detail in the decorating and all the amenities (anyone would need), was spot on, right down to a roof top set of dishes for enjoying the view.

Loved all your notations on restaurants, shopping and sites to see. We all enjoyed the music selection...used the Internet access for our Kindles and easily connected....the bed was very comfortable...and how could we not, love and enjoy the water view!

...shared the couch bed and we were glad that you had upgraded the mattress. I believe one person or a child whould sleep more comfortably on the couch bed, rather than two adults.

Lastly, we all felt very safe and secure in the building and in the parking garage. We were impressed with the efficiency of the boat & bike rakes in the parking garage and support Victoria BC's commitment to recycling and environmental awareness and conservation

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We visited Victoria the May long weekend and really enjoyed our stay at this condo. Having used VRBO for trips to Italy and Spain we are always leery of the photos but we had nothing to worry about here. The condo is in a great location, so close to China town, wonderful restaurants and the new market just a few blocks away with the best cheese, chacuterie and chocolate selections. The real gem of this condo is the rooftop patio, with spectacular views of the harbour. Francis was very wonderful checking us in and out. Would definitely stay here again!

Very nice spot !

  • 5 of 5

I liked this vacation property very much. It was close to most everything and bus stops weren't very far away. The view is lovely and the roof top garden was my lunchtime hideaway ! It is only a hop, skip and a jump from Chinatown which I really enjoyed. Hoping to get back next year.

February in no snow Victoria

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent a wonderful month in Victoria in this beautiful condo.

When we arrived we were so pleasantly surprised with the spectacular view overlooking the harbour which you never tire of watching.

The condo is so well designed. Everything we needed was supplied. The stainless steel appliances are all new and the kitchen is stocked with all your basic necessities to make meals. The bed was so comfortable and there is plenty of storage for personal belongings.

We enjoyed the rooftop patio on a few warm days to watch the sunset over the harbour.

The secure underground parking was greatly appreciated.

Francis was extremely helpful when we checked in and out.

We hope to return again - such a great location right in the heart of downtown Victoria.

The owners were very accommodating with their rental arrangements.

Earthquake Proof at Christmas time

  • 5 of 5

The first week of our Christmas holiday was spent surrounded in absolute comfort. The condo was just beautiful as it had just been refurbished with new stainless steel appliances, tasteful decor, and any kitchen item one would need for daily use or entertaining. The location was excellent for shopping and dining. Lights galore surrounded the Inner Harbour and gave a festive glow for the holidays- who needs snow!! Thank you for making our stay outstanding and memorable; re:earthquake. The owners and management team were very approachable and conscientious as to check in and check out. We found the building very secure and appreciated being able to park our vehicle onsite. Definitely a place to return to!

Even better than we expected

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a busy week with family and friends on Vancouver Island. This trip was made all the more enjoyable by this condo. When we booked online the pictures of the condo looked very nice but when we arrived what a surprise. It had just been renovated with new paint and stainless steel appliances as well as new linens, towels and kitchen supplies. You often fear that places will not look as good as their pictures. This place surpassed its online appearance.

Checking in and out was easy with Francis available at our convenience both times. He was also easily reached with any questions throughout our stay.

The condo is stocked with many basic necessities making it easy to make meals there suiting our busy schedule. Nearby are many great restaurants, coffee shops and stores. The walk to the harbour, the museum and the Songhees Walkway provided some interesting tourist attractions.

The building is very secure and the underground parking is an added bonus in a city where parking is a premium. If you are flying in the airport shuttle drops off at a couple of nearby locations from which you can walk or take a short cab ride.

Though it was December and therefore cool we did enjoy the rooftop patio for short periods of time to take in the view of the harbour. It would be an real added bonus on warmer days.

We hope to be back again soon.
