Property description

Welcome to Awarehouse Loft - which extends across the entire building right above the clothing store in the picture. Located on the second floor, accessed by elevator or stairs, it has floor to ceiling windows 14 feet high which create a lovely ambience and an interesting view of the ever changing street activities below.

Please consider that the wooden heritage windows which flood the loft with light, also let in street noise from people accessing the various restaurants, pubs as well as occasionally from construction as heritage buildings are renovated.

Converted from a historic warehouse it boasts old red brick side walls with historic wood and sash windows. Awarehouse loft at 811 square feet was carved from a unique warehouse space and all it's living areas are more spacious than the majority of lofts/condos in the historic downtown area. It may be the only loft in the Leiser Building with a king sized bed in an enclosed bedroom.

The living-room/dining/kitchen open space contrasts heritage architecture with modern furnishings. The open space makes cooking and entertaining a pleasure. The kitchen has been furnished for people who love to cook. It is fully equipped with a dishwasher, stove/oven, microwave, coffee grinder, coffee makers, Tassimo, blender, food processor, toaster, toaster oven and all of the comforts of home. The separate dining area at one end of the living space comfortably seats four. There is also a bar counter with seating for two.

The living room area has four leather lounge chairs for seating. The entertainment unit houses a 40' High Definition TV with Personal Video Recorder and DVD systems. Cables enable you to stream from your laptop to the TV. WIFI is included in the rental.

Your clothes will be well looked after, there is plenty of closet space, a coat closet and a large wardrobe in the bedroom. The loft has a washer and dryer. The bathroom is spacious and has a bathtub and shower and heated towel rack.

Awarehouse Loft is a non-smoking space for couples, singles, snowbirds or short-term vacationers who enjoy a comfortable self-catering holiday. We are sorry but no pets are permitted. The rental price is all inclusive, high-speed internet access, high definition television with full HD cable connections, free local phone calls, all electricity and heating charges, sheets, towels, liquid soap and staples in the kitchen (salt, pepper, coffee, tea, sugar and more). You will be met and given assistance to settle into the apartment.

Enjoy Victoria's marvellous waterfront and old town vistas from Awarehouse Loft's rooftop patio. Experience the charm of old town architecture, sightseeing, water tours, shopping, nightclubs and great restaurants just steps away from Awarehouse's downtown location. Victoria is a charming city with lots of activities, great places to explore, fabulous dining and great nightlife opportunities. Whether you are in town for three nights, two weeks or months at a time, there is always lots to see and do in our lovely Provincial Capital.
