About the property

Modern, luxurious condo with views & secure parking in best downtown location!

Our New Fisgard Flat @ the Union is a luxuriously appointed one-bedroom condo in the Union Building, located in the heart of downtown Victoria, BC.

You'll love our perfect "Design District" location 1 block from the inner harbour. From our suite, look out at the beautiful sights of Chinatown: lucky red-paper lanterns, gas-flame lamps and the famous Gates of Harmonious Interest (built as “a permanent monument to mark the harmony of the multicultural society which all Canadians enjoy.”) The Union Building was built in 2014 and spans the entire block between Chinatown to the north and Market Square to the south.

Aside from the sights of Chinatown, our top-floor suite affords a spectacular north-facing view over the heritage brick buildings of Old Town, to the inner harbour and Vancouver Island mountains beyond. Enjoy spectacular sunsets from the balcony and the living room's comfortable leather furniture.

The 9-foot ceilings and full-height windows allow lots of natural light. The living room offers designer touches - such as the gloss-laminate coffee table with a lift-top - and affords ample space to relax on the leather sectional couch. The dining room is romantic and cozy with the wall-mounted fireplace.

The bedroom has a comfy queen-size bed. The condo is best suited for 2 people, however one extra guest can be accommodated on the long couch, and we also have a Pak'N'Play + bedding for a baby (please note the height of the balcony and its furniture make our unit unsuitable for toddlers and small children!!)

The full kitchen has stainless steel appliances and is fully stocked with everything you could possibly need to prepare gourmet meals.

In-suite laundry is provided, and other amenities include telephone, cable + HDTV, Netflix, free Wifi internet, board games, and 1 parking spot in our enclosed, underground parkade. We even have a basic laptop for browsing if you need it (just ask, as it's in storage).

The harbour ferry stops one block away ... take a tour of the Gorge waterway or go for fish & chips at Fisherman's Wharf.

There are numerous excellent restaurants within a few blocks, including Mo;le, Jam, Swan's Brewpub, II Terrazzo, ulla, Green Cuisine Vegetarian, Canoe Brewpub, Brasserie L'Ecole, to name just a few.

You will be met by Margaret, our Manager, upon arrival. She will ensure that you have everything you need and answer any questions that you may have. She will be happy to send you info and links prior to your stay, for everything from our recommended restaurant list to transportation info (even bike and kayak rentals)... just ask!

Enjoy your stay!

About Karen & Tom Weiss

Married for 29 years, we love to travel and realize that our own city of Victoria is a very special place! Karen was born here and Tom's family moved here when he was very young.

Karen & Tom Weiss purchased this condo in 2017

Why Karen & Tom Weiss chose Downtown

We enjoy travelling and finding vacation-rental gems, and we wanted to help visitors to Victoria find the perfect spot from which to explore our great city. We picked a property that has all of the features we look for when we are searching for a vacation rental.

Truly AMAZING!!!

  • 5 of 5

From the time we arrived until the time we left Victoria our stay was amazing!!! We were met and welcomed by Margaret to the condo and what a great way to start our holiday!! She is an excellent representative for the owners !!!! She was very helpful in everything we needed to know - places to visit, shop, for dining or for directions to somewhere, etc.. The condo is very, very well put together with every convenience possible to make a vacation truly memorable. The bed was excellent!! We thank you for giving us a time to remember!!!

Excellent location and very nice flat!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is modern and cute. The view from the balcony isn't great, but the location is fantastic! We could walk to all the great restaurants in the area, and it was wonderful to have a secure place to park the car. We really enjoyed our anniversary trip to Victoria!
