Victoria apartment description

Step back in time and enjoy our 1907 brick home set atop a breathtaking rock garden with views of downtown Victoria, the Outer Harbour and the Olympic mountains. This historical home has been lovingly renovated into three distinct suites with separate entrances and garden patio for a cottage feel. Each suite is fully-equipped with modern amenities such as dishwasher, washer/dryer, microwave, WIFI and TV. Please note that there are steps required to reach the house (not wheelchair accessible).

Your well-behaved and non-aggressive pet is welcome here--each suite has a fenced-in area and a doggie door.

This listing (and calendar) is for Suite #1, which is a stunning 1 bedroom with wrap-around veranda and and all the charm of this 1907 home. If you would like to view the other suites or check their availability, please see listing # 612221 (for the other 1 bedroom) or listing #612335 (for the 2 bedroom +den).


Suite #1 is a large one bedroom suite with 1 1/2 bathrooms a full-sized living room and formal dining area. It was built from the main section of the house and features high ceilings, pillars, stained glass and hardwood floors.

Sit outside and enjoy the temperate climate in a garden patio or on a wrap-around covered veranda featuring a propane BBQ. You can smell the ocean in the air.

The suite is fully furnished and has a queen sized bed and a pull-out couch in the living room. Suitable for short-term or long-term stays.

The home is located in a quiet neighbourhood within walking distance of downtown, everyday shopping needs, and a scenic oceanside walkway that travels around the inner harbour. If you don't feel like walking, a cab ($10 CDN) can get you most downtown tourist attractions.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2000

                      About the owner: I am a retired registered nurse my husband, born in Germany still runs his Music studio and store. We are long term residents of Victoria, (my mother was born one block from our house). We have been married 40 years. We enjoy the wonderful amenities Victoria has to offer on a regular basis. We truly love animals and welcome your pets. We have a one legged Seagull we have named Heathcliff which we nursed back to health after finding him near death on the beach down the road. He is has adopted us and spends a lot of time perched on our roof or sitting on the rock to sun himself.

                      Why the Owner Chose Victoria:
                      I fell in love with this house the minute I saw it. It is a rare 1907 brick house on a hillcrest with perfect proximity to downtown Victoria, transportation and walks. I have worked to return this home to its glory for the last 13 years and am so proud to share its restored charm with guests.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                      We are active users of vacation rentals throughout the world as well. We like to provide the same care and attention to your stay as we have appreciated when we travel.
