Victoria condo description

The Zen Garden Suite is a 1 bedroom Vacation Rental, located in downtown Victoria British Columbia

Close to Chinatown, the central business district, Victoria tourism areas, transportation, shopping, restaurants, historic buildings and Victoria’s Upper Harbour.

The Suite provides a quiet oasis of tranquility in the heart of downtown Victoria, BC. From the living room you can step out onto a private 150 square foot paved terrace, which looks into a tranquil Zen Garden, where building residents can relax and enjoy privacy, while listening to the sounds of the city outside the garden walls.

Located just one block from the Gate of Harmonious Interest - the entrance to Canada’s oldest Chinatown
Less than one block from the Victoria Design District
Two blocks to the Victoria Public Market
Two blocks to the waterfront, and a Victoria Harbour Ferry Stop
Two blocks to Old Town Victoria
Three blocks to Save-on-Foods Memorial Arena
Two blocks to Nirvana Pet Resort

The Zen Garden Suite is the ideal location for enjoying the vibrancy of the downtown Victoria, and then escaping to your urban retreat, away from it all.

                          The Zen Garden Suite is really well positioned, close to the Gates of Harmonious Interest (entrance to Victoria's Chinatown, the 2nd oldest Chinatown in North America) and adjacent to Victoria's Design District and just one block from the Victoria Public Market. Walk just 3 blocks and you're at a Victoria Harbour Ferry Stop on the Upper Harbour, adjacent to the Canoe Brew Pub. There's lots of interesting shopping too, at places like Capital Iron, Chintz's Eclectic Furniture and the shops in Market Square. All in all, this is one of the most interesting areas of Victoria in which to stay.
