Overview

About the property

Modern, newer condo with gorgeous views in best downtown location

Luxuriously appointed one-bedroom condo in the Union Building (built 2014) in the heart of downtown Victoria, BC. (If this unit is booked, please also see our other listing at same location, www.vrbo.com/1024853.)

A perfect location 1/2 a block from the inner harbour, the building spans the entire block between Chinatown to the north and Market Square to the south.

Our top-floor suite affords a spectacular south-facing view over the heritage brick buildings of Old Town, to the inner harbour and Olympic Mountains beyond. Enjoy spectacular sunsets from the small balcony or the living room's comfortable leather furniture.

The 9-foot ceilings and full-height windows allow lots of natural light. The bedroom has a comfy queen-size bed ... and room-darkening blinds for your afternoon naps.

Extra guests can be accommodated with the queen-size sofa-bed, and we also have a Pak'N'Play + bedding for your little one. The full kitchen has new stainless steel appliances and is fully stocked with everything you could possibly need to prepare gourmet meals.

In-suite laundry is provided, and other amenities include telephone, cable + a Smart 4K UHDTV, Netflix, free Wifi internet, air-conditioning, board games, and 1 parking spot in our enclosed, underground parkade. We even have a basic laptop for browsing if you need it (just ask, as it's in storage).

The harbour ferry stops one block away ... take a tour of the Gorge waterway or go for fish & chips at Fisherman's Wharf.

There are numerous excellent restaurants within a few blocks, including Swan's Brewpub, II Terrazzo, ulla, Green Cuisine Vegetarian, Canoe Brewpub, Brasserie L'Ecole, to name just a few.

You will be met by Margaret, our Manager, upon arrival. She will ensure that you have everything you need and answer any questions that you may have. She will be happy to send you info and links prior to your stay, for everything from our recommended restaurant list to transportation info (even bike and kayak rentals)... just ask!

Enjoy your stay!

About Karen & Tom Weiss

Married for 29 years, we love to travel and realize that our own city of Victoria is a very special place! Karen was born here and Tom's family moved here when he was very young.

Karen & Tom Weiss purchased this condo in 2014

Why Karen & Tom Weiss chose Downtown

We enjoy travelling and finding vacation-rental gems, and we wanted to help visitors to Victoria find the perfect spot from which to explore our great city. We picked a property that has all of the features we look for when we are searching for a vacation rental.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We very much enjoyed our stay at Karen's apartment in Victoria. We corresponded easily with Karen's sister, Margaret, and she met us when we arrived. She was very welcoming and accomodating, helping us store our luggage while the room was being cleaned and providing restaurant and bicycle rental recommendations. The location was perfect - easy walking distance to many restaurants, places of interest, and the bicycle trail, which we took to The Butchart Gardens. The coffee shop right next door (The Habit) had wonderful coffee and muffins. The indian restaurant on the corner of the block (Varsha) was delicious. The bicycle trail was beautiful and well-marked. The apartment itself was immaculate, comfortable, and secure. I would definitely stay here again. Thanks Karen and Margaret!

Excelllent stay

  • 5 of 5

Met all our expectations. Well equipped, comfortable, clean, good location, easy check in. Bed, although comfortable, was a bit too high off the ground for short old folks.

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

Having access to the heart of Victoria and staying in a cozy, clean, secure apartment was exactly what we wanted in our three day getaway. The manager Margaret gave us a concise rundown of the operations (elevator, secure parking area, tv remotes, etc.) and provided us with a warm welcome. We were looking for adventure without leaving the comforts of home - this place provided all of that. If I could give them (Margaret and the owners) ten stars, I would.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year staying here and would highly recommend this unit. Perfect location downtown and near the waterfront. The suite was equipped with everything you needed and Margaret was very helpful. If we go back to Victoria we would definitely stay here.
