Victoria apartment description

Booking a property through Victoria Prime ensures you get the highest quality property for the best value and nobody beats our customer service. Start with Liz and Maureen who personally work with you to make sure you find the right property for your specific needs or wants. Send us your wish list; we know all of the properties personally and can steer you in the right direction.

We make the booking process easy and secure, no hassles or worries.

Our wonderful concierge team takes it from there, answering all of your questions, and working with you to arrange a time to meet and greet you at the property so they can offer a proper building and unit orientation, make sure you know how to use everything and know the best places to go.

We hope you will let us show you what customer service is all about. It is the fun part for us after all.

(Note: Due to recent changes made by VRBO, our GUEST REVIEWS written into our guest books we have in our properties, have been moved to the MANAGER INFO tab right next to Photos. We at Victoria Prime greatly appreciate any and all feedback from our guests, but do not like to hound people to write a review online if they are not comfortable with that process. We find most of our guests enjoy sharing their experiences while relaxing in the condo after a fun filled day or they often respond to our thank you email and share their experiences then. We post them all, even if they are imperfect. We hope you will have a look.)

Welcome to Garden Cozy, a charming and spacious 1200 square foot suite with 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths. It is part of a 6800 square feet Victorian home built in 1908 and completely renovated in the late 1980's.

The location is ideal due to its centrality to most everything. Grocery stores, drug stores, banks, restaurants, cafe's, liquor stores, post office, hospitals, all of these and more (like the harbour and the beach) are within a 2 to 20 minute walk. All major bus routes can be caught in 1-2 blocks from the house.

Convenience is important, but beauty of your surroundings plays a major role in the attraction of this suite. St. Charles Street is home to more than its share of old Victorian heritage homes (some of which are B&Bs now) with amazing gardens and huge trees. Just down the street is the Government House with the majesty of its views of the Olympics and the ocean, not to mention the breathtaking gardens that some call 'mini-Butchart'.

'Well appointed' is a term that is commonly used to describe this unit. It has everything from high speed wi-fi to an ipod docking station and in suite washer and dryer; and if it doesn't have it and you need it, Liz and Bruce will get it for you. All of this, not forgetting the former heritage garden that wraps all around the house, provides breathtaking photo opportunities to send back home.

Perfect for those wanting to escape the 'tourism' of downtown, yet still close enough to walk to be in the middle of it all. This suite is ideal for the frequent visitor to Victoria and for those who like to live like a local.

Call or email us with any questions you may have. We look forward to speaking to you.
