Description

This popular rental is filling up fast for the summer season. Book now to guarantee your summer vacation in the heart of Old Town Victoria.

This rental is for short term rentals of minimum 2 days.

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.

Ultra highspeed Wifi (150MB) 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!

Lovely Condo

We were blessed to have had the opportunity to spend a few days in this lovely condo! We were met by Gary who gave us a tour of the condo which was awesome. It was so nice to meet the owner. The condo was very very clean and well equipped with everything one needs for their stay. Perfect location and very quiet! Thank you Gary and Rosemary! We loved our visit and we will be back soon!

Amazing place , Amazing Owners

It was our fifth stay in Victoria and we spent 2 nights in the condo, it was clean, quiet and perfectly located. But I don't have enough words to speak about Rosemary the owner! She met us at the check in and gave us flowers and bottle of wine because it was our 26 years wedding anniversary! she was simply a genius! We will be back for sure and recommend this place to our friends.

Had a Great Time

Had a great time in beautiful downtown Victoria. Apartment was easy to get to and close to everything. Having secure parking was a bonus. Rosemary and Gary met us there and made us feel right at home. Even accommodated our change of arrival time. Apartment was clean and had everything we needed. Would definitely stay here again. Thanks again. Kim and Gord

A Perfect Stay

Our stay at Rosemary and Gary’s condominium was exceptional and all we could hope for. It’s amazing to have a city condo in the heart of Victoria’s old town and Chinatown that is as quiet as a library. This is because the room overlooks the gardens in the central court and not a street. The kitchen is well supplied with cookware and dishware. No issues. The bed and linens are perfect. The bathroom is ideal; the bath is comfortable and the shower perfect. Clean as a whistle. The interior parking is in a well-lit and spacious garage. Simply put, it’s a comfortable, roomy, well looked after and properly furnished vacation condo. Having stayed in Victoria previously, I know the area to be ideal for a stay. Everything is nearby. Downtown is a short walk away. The bridge across the inlet is handy. Restaurants abound. (More restaurants per capita than any city in Canada by the way.) Terrific coffeeshops and pubs nearby. That enjoyment of the city begins with an owner (Rosemary, in my case) taking the time to give visitors a thorough orientation to both the condo and the area. As it happens, I had a brother staying nearby who could have used that sort of help when he moved into a different building. A perfect stay. Thank you.

Blown Away

Stayed at Rosemary & Gary’s place for two night's and were blown away. This was by far the best whole unit AIR-BNB we've experienced. They really have thought of everything. The unit is small, so be forewarned, this is the size of a studio apartment, but it is packed with features. The full kitchen has everything you will need to eat in, including tea and coffee and a proper tea pot and kettle. Rosemary is a great host and can provide a lot of advice about the neighbourhood or you can just wander. The apartment is located in the heart of downtown, right on the edge of Chinatown. It couldn't be better placed to see the sites. I highly recommend this accommodation and host!
