Victoria condo description

Victoria’s beloved “Blue Bridge” was the inspiration for this one-bedroom vacation rental suite in the historic Old Town area of Victoria.

Located in the newly-built Union Building, which spans the entire block between Victoria’s Chinatown and Victoria’s historic Old Town areas, it is close to the site of the original Johnson Street Bridge (the Blue Bridge) which was designed by Joseph Strauss, who also designed San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge.

This iconic landmark served Victoria for 90 years and became a symbol of our city’s connection with the neighbouring community of Esquimalt. Now it is to be replaced by a new, more efficient and safer bridge, but the memories of the Blue Bridge will always be preserved in the finishing and décor of the Victoria Landmark Suite, as you enjoy your stay in this fabulous vacation rental apartment in downtown Victoria.

We have prepared the Victoria Landmark Suite so you can enjoy your vacation rental in Victoria as a “home away from home” with maximum comfort during your visit to British Columbia’s Capital City.

We have furnished your short-term rental apartment with modern appliances, the best of bedding. In addition, your living and dining room furnishings are of the highest quality, which will provide you with comfort in your surroundings.
