About: We have lived, worked and played in Victoria BC for 35 years. We've also traveled extensively and have come to understand the many diverse needs of travelers who wish to stay in Vacation Rentals. We have been honoured with the Trip Advisor/Flip Key 'Top Vacation Rental, Victoria' for two years in a row (2011, 2012) and we're working our way towards a Hat Trick! If you need to know anything about Victoria and area, about any of our vacation rental properties (all of which are in downtown Victoria) please don't hesitate to contact us.
There is an 'energy' in this small pocket of downtown Victoria, BC that can't be found anywhere else. A 'vibrancy' and an international flavor that stimulates one's senses. The City Vibe Suite is located in the middle of the Victoria Design District, Chinatown, The Victoria Public Market and the Government Street tourist strip. There's lots of places to shop for interesting food items, souvenirs, imports, local arts and crafts and regular, everyday supplies. You can walk to almost anywhere in downtown Victoria from here and then return to your comfortable, well equipped suite, relax in front of the large screen smart TV and ease away the rest of the day.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The enclosed Zen Garden in the central courtyard is pretty sweet for sitting and relaxing while you listen to the sounds of the city outside the walls. The proximity to Chinatown shopping and dining is a definite asset. The amazingly efficient layout of the suite makes it a wonderfully comfortable and convenient place in which to stay if you're a couple wanting an affordable, spotlessly clean and well-equipped vacation rental in which to stay while you're in Victoria, BC.
