Property description

Our rate structure of giving more discount to longer stays is not supported
by VRBO, so we just put $1. Actual rates are listed as 'Notes' under VRBO's 'Rates'.
Sorry but our rates are firm. We offer daily & weekly rates, but not monthly rate. Our rates are all inclusive. No damage deposit, taxes or cleaning/other fees will be charged.
Please email us for availabilities as we do not use VRBO calendar.

Harborwalk is licensed for short term accommodations by the City of Victoria since 2004. Please visit our web site harborwalk.ca for photos, floor plan, etc.

One reason we're popular is our terrific location in downtown Victoria. We're so close to Victoria's main tourist spots you can avoid using a car. (For example, it's only a 3 minute walk to the Royal BC Museum or the inner harbour) If you have a car we provide free private parking.

Harborwalk is a 'character suite'. The decor is fresh, clean and relaxing. And, we keep it spotless! The suite has a private entrance from the front porch (pictured above.) It consists of three rooms connected by a short hallway - all yours, nothing shared.

The main room is a bedroom/sitting room. It has a queen sized bed, a gas fireplace, bay windows, a TV/DVD and a leather sofa that converts into a single bed. The second room is a kitchen and dining area. The dining area can also serve as temporary sleeping quarters (by adding a roll-away single bed). The third room is your private washroom, complete with antique clawfoot tub (1932) and overhead 'sunflower' shower.

Time and again we're told that Harborwalk is a delightful experience. It should be. Harborwalk has a charming 'country cottage' appeal. Our quiet lane, dotted with evergreens, started life in the 1800's as a footpath to the seaside. Today it's a character street, popular with horse drawn carriage tours and curious tourists.

Vancouver Island's biodiversity and natural wonders attract visitors from around the world. It's a wonderful place to get away, relax and spend some quality time. And there are plenty of ways to fill your time too. Tourism is Victoria's #1 industry.

We want you to have a great experience, because when you feel good about it... so do we.
