Victoria condo description

Urban sophistication and sumptuous luxury is yours to experience as you enjoy a taste of life in Canada’s “Mediterranean” city, Victoria. Soaring 15 stories above Victoria’s inner harbour, this vacation home is simply magnificent. Spectacular views are offered from every vantage point in this large corner suite, from the floor to ceiling windows in the bedrooms, to the wall-to-wall gazing windows in the open-concept grand living area, to the amazing porcelain tiled, glass railed wrap-around balcony – the city is yours to discover! The Falls offers calming water feature pools, beautiful landscape gardens, and spectacular cascading waterfalls as part of its amazing architectural features.

Conveniently located within comfortable walking distance of everything you want to explore, from Beacon Hill Park to the famous rose gardens of the Empress Hotel to the hustle and bustle of Canada's oldest Chinatown – you are within mere steps of the artisans who display their wares in the Inner Harbour, and across the street from Victoria’s most famous entertainment hotspot, the “Sticky Wicket”. Amazing pub fare, night club dancing, and a game of outdoor roof-top beach volleyball are yours to enjoy any night of the week. Don’t feel like crossing the street? Take the elevator down to the main floor, and enjoy a meal at Browns Socialhouse. Need only a snack? There is a 24-hour 7-11 on the main floor as well. Feel like eating in? Whip up a meal in the chef-approved kitchen while enjoying the panoramic harbour view of the setting evening sun, followed by the breathtaking twinkle of the city’s lights at night.

Exhausted by the adventures you’ve enjoyed, rotate the black leather headboard of your bed so that you are facing the wall-to-ceiling window, turn on the white-noise fan to erase the sounds of the nightlife surrounding you, then drift off to sleep on the tempurpedic mattress, snuggled under a goose down duvet. Pleasant dreams, as your thoughts turn to tomorrow’s adventures – shopping, horse-drawn carriage ride, fine dining, galleries and more will be yours to explore.
