During Covid-19 

At this time you may be needing a clean, quiet place to self-isolate safely or while being available to help loved ones in Victoria. Our downtown condo is a haven of peace in the heart of the Old Town. This lovely suite comes with a spacious, non-ground floor patio facing a rooftop garden, and has secure parking. Extras include a cozy electric fireplace, wifi, & Netflix. While some of the usual Victoria attractions are temporarily closed, it's a wonderful place to cozy up in front of the fireplace, watch free Netflix movies or read the current books in our library! Bookings are minimum 3 days and maximum 28 days.  

(We may rent some 2 day blocks when available so watch for these)

Sorry,  we will not be providing long term rentals at this time.

The Location

Whether you're in beautiful Victoria for business, romance or relaxation, the central location of our lovely new condo is hard to beat! A haven of peace in the heart of Chinatown, this lovely apartment comes with a spacious, non-ground floor patio overlooking a garden and secure parking. Extras include a cozy electric fireplace, bone china dishes, and a safe for your valuables. Take the bus around or enjoy relaxing strolls to cafes and restaurants, great shopping, theatres and the Inner Harbour!

The Space

This home-away-from-home exudes a feeling of welcome and relaxation. Virtually all furnishings and decor have just been purchased brand new, and great care has been taken to ensure quality and comfort. The ultra comfy pillow top queen size mattress and pillows, and the luxurious pure cotton bedding invite you to enjoy refreshing nights of sleep. The queen size sofa bed is also by far the most comfortable one we could find, both as a sofa or as a bed, so your guests or family members should sleep as restfully as you will!  Wake up and treat yourself to a soak in the tub or an invigorating shower, and then help yourself to coffee or tea. The kitchen includes full size appliances (fridge, stove/oven, microwave) as well as small appliances and pots & pans, so feel free to cook to your heart's content. Need some clean laundry on your trip? The stacked washer/dryer with detergent is available for your use. Highspeed Wifi is included! And if you'd like, relax and choose from the extensive programming (for all ages) on the 40" TV. For your security we have also included a digital safe large enough for your laptop and other valuables.

Enjoy too some of the little extras we have chosen to include--which you'll have to visit to find out about.

You're going to want to keep coming back for further visits!

Excellent Condo

Great condo, great host! The condo is clean and quiet as it faces a beautiful courtyard so even though you're downtown it's not noisy. It's walking distance to many restaurants and attractions. We normally stay in hotels when we visit Victoria however for now on this will be our first choice. It has everything that you need and secured parking spot. I highly recommend staying here!

5 Stars All The Way

Communication was very helpful for us and the small touches like cookies, bananas, bottle water, coffee and tea were great but who thinks to add cream for coffee! My wife was very impressed by this and I appreciate not having to step out to the grocery store for her. The place was as advertised - clean, super convenient and very comfortable. We will most definitely return in the future. 5 stars all the way.

Will Stay Again

We stayed a week for work. Designated secured parking is onsite very convenient to get to work early morning. We stayed in the same building many timed on other units. This is the best as it is not facing the main road so quieter.

Wonderful Little Apartment

Such a wonderful little apartment in a very convenient part of town! Beautiful natural light and very quiet. They had every kitchen amenity I could’ve ever needed (and more), easy and free parking (on property), amazing water pressure and all furniture was exceptionally comfortable! Gary was amazing in doing my check-in and very informative! I definitely would stay here or recommend this place to friends in the future.
