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.

The location is amazing ... close to everything you want to visit in Victoria, we walked everywhere. Lovely and clean and well equipped. Greeted by owner to run through the fobs that needed to be used to get into the building.

Great Location and Very Clean

We loved our visit to Gary and Rosemary's condo in downtown Victoria. Walking distance to restaurants, shops, and tour buses. Rosemary met us when we arrived and was very helpful with pointing out the best restaurants, sweet shops and other areas of interest. My husband and I slept in the bedroom and our 21 year old grandson was comfortable on the pull out sofa bed in the family room. Everything was spotless clean and the condo is very well stocked. Even tea and coffee pods - I was impressed. We will absolutely stay in this condo on our next visit to Victoria. Couldn't be happier with the accommodations or the Hosts.

Visiting Victoria

Rosemary and Gary's condo on Pandora was wonderful and provided us with just the anchor we needed while we explored the area. Breakfast on the sunny patio was a highlight. Rosemary and Gary were always attentive and helpful. I hope we will return. Diana

Very Nice

We enjoyed our stay in Rosemary and Gary’s condo. Communication was great and the condo was just as promised. The location was great for walking most everywhere we wanted to go. Rosemary even met us with a bottle of wine for our anniversary. We would definitely stay here again.

Wonderful Experience

Our stay was excellent. Rosemary and Gary were extremely accomadating to our schedule. The location is perfect. Everything we wanted to see was in walking distance or by use of the transit system. Rosemary answered all of our questions about activities we were interested in. And lots of special touches to make the stay special. The property itself is in a quiet and secure building. Highly recommend!!!

Great location!

This is a very comfortable condo. Nicely appointed. Comfortable bed. Good shower. Very clean. It has a nice patio area which would be great in warmer weather. The free off street parking was a real plus in the middle of Victoria. We were within a few minutes' walk of a zillion places to eat and also near the water. Aside from our day trip to Butchart Gardens (which is a definite must-see), we walked everywhere else. The location is really what set this place aside.

Wow! Superb accommodation!

This modern, well appointed apartment is in a perfect, safe location for touring the city. It is near the waterfront and Chinatown, only a short walk to the center of the city and many shops, pubs and restaurants. We appreciated the comfortable bed and lounge space, the large private patio, the security of the building and how quiet and peaceful it was in the apartment. The apartment and the surrounding neighborhood are exactly as shown in the listing. Rosemary is a lovely host and her special touches (coffee, teas, fruit & cookies!!) and detailed orientation got our stay in Victoria off to a great start. She kept in close touch to coordinate our checkin and departure times, making both very easy. Highly recommend this apartment and would definitely stay here again!! Thanks Rosemary & Gary!

Thank you so much for highlighting so beautifully the features that you most enjoyed about our vacation condo! We're glad you had such an enjoyable stay, and would love it if you would come and visit again! Thx again, Rosemary and Gary

Comfortable well-located condo in Victoria

We had a great stay in Rosemary and Gary's condo in Victoria. The location was ideal, in the middle of Chinatown and downtown Victoria. The condo was very comfortable with everything we needed for our visit. Rosemary graciously welcomed us with information on the area and the condo. We would definitely stay there again.

Thank you. It was lovely to host you and family and we're so glad you had a great time in Victoria, and found our condo comfortable and just right for your needs. Please come again anytime!
