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.

Fabulous location exquisite accommodation
Fabulous location exquisite accommodation
Thank you Val for allowing us the opportunity to stay at your beautiful condo. Everything was just perfect. The view was to die for and all the extras were true luxury. It is hard to believe that such a beautiful property is available to rent. Attending our daughters convocation from UofVic was one of life's special moments and your accommodation made it extra special for all of us and we will have wonderful memories forever. It was my first experience renting on VRBO and I will definitely use them again. I look forward to spending more time at your place in the very near future. Thank you so very much. K/B & J

Owner response: We are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and that you had a nice time visiting the wineries in the Cowichan Valley area. We are thrilled that you chose to stay at our condo and we look forward to seeing you again next year!
My husband and I took my parents to Victoria for a little getaway and by absolute luck we found this wonderful home! First, the pictures do not do this home justice! The views are so breathtaking we almost regretted leaving to tour the city everyday. The bedrooms are well appointed, and the beds were so comfortable (seriously, best night sleep ever) that my mom asked Valerie all the mattress details to go replace her current one (which the sweet and very attentive Valerie was kind enough to provide...even emailing me after with extra details) I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay! Thank you Valerie!

Short stay in Victoria
Short stay in Victoria
We were a group of 3 ladies spending time in Victoria to celebrate our birthdays. The condo was very clean, beds very comfortable, owner accommodating and wanted us to enjoy our "vacation". The condo included many conveniences and offered a spectacular view of the area. It was convenient and close to restaurants and shopping. We were able to get on a bus outside the building to go to Butshart Gardens. We walked to and from the ferry with ease; the trip from the ferry to the condo was uphill, so walking to the condo should be considered by persons with any physical limitations.

The long weekend was amazing! The pictures don't do the place justice - it was like living in the pages of the Architectural Digest magazine! We took the shuttle from the airport to the Empress Hotel, then walked the block to the condo. Everything you want is within walking distance. You've got to go to the inner harbour and check out all of the artisans with their crafts and art work. Tons of excellent restaurants in the area made it difficult to choose where to eat. We made our own breakfast each morning, and enjoyed it out on the balcony (watching sea-planes land and tugboats cross the harbour) before heading out for the day. We didn't do much cooking, but the kitchen has everything you need. My only negative observation was that the oven is rather small - you wouldn't be able to cook a 25 pound turkey, but then who needs to? And if you are a light sleeper, then you should probably bring ear-plugs. The Sticky Wicket has amazing food and is a great place to party, but when the windows were open you could hear the noise of the revelers. However, closing the window and turning on the fan pretty much erased the noise. Next time I'd like to enjoy the hot tub and gym. Didn't have time on this visit - too much to see and do in a four-day weekend! I'd recommend this site to anyone who wants an incredible holiday experience.
