It Doesn't Get Better Than This In Victoria!

  • 5 of 5

We've been fortunate to have stayed in many places throughout the world and this Victoria unit is right at the top of our list. Outstanding accomodation, views and location! Open plan living, dining and kitchen. Modern, comfortable furnishings. Fully equipped kitchen with every kitchen gadget and appliance you can imagine. Spectacular views of the park, Fisherman's Wharf and the amazing active Harbour from all front rooms and the large balcony. Views of Victoria neighbourhoods and mountains from side balcony. No need for a car here. Walkway along the Harbour to downtown is out front, Dallas Rd sea wall walkway is around the corner and local bus hooks up everywhere else.

Manager Nancy really knows how to make you feel at home. She has a wealth of knowledge about eateries and great places to visit in Victoria and area. If there's anything that needs to be taken care of in the unit, she's there in a flash. What's not to love!!

Movie Star living!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in #502 at The Reef and I'd still be there if I had my way!! I considered attaching myself to the balcony but realized it wouldn't be very elegant......

The Reef is located in James Bay overlooking a lovely park as well as Fishermans Wharf. The view of the harbour from the floor to ceiling windows is incredible, with ferries, boats and planes going by during the day and a view of the West Vic skyline and the Empress hotel and legislative building at night. Because this condo is on a corner, the views of James Bay and the mountains are also breathtaking. The condo is very modern, with leather furniture and a large glass dining room table that overlooked the view. The kitchen is amazing, being well equipped with small appliances, lots of dishes, wonderful cookware, wine glasses, candles etc. The bedroom also has wall to ceiling windows so that you can lay in the king-size bed and gaze over James Bay as well as the mountains. The location of the Reef is very conveniently situated in Victoria and it is possible to walk to restaurants, groceries, downtown etc. There is a fresh fish market next door which apparently has the best fresh fish in the city. The downtown bus stops outside of the building, and the water taxi from Fishermans Wharf takes you across the harbour. Because the building is concrete, there was virtually no noise in the condo, other than the buses going by.

We LOVED our month in the Reef and wish that we could have stayed longer!

Great Condo, Great Location, Better Service

  • 5 of 5

We currently spend about six months a year traveling away from home, this after decades in senior management in the resort industry. To say we have a lot of experience with vacation lodging is an understatement. We would be hard pressed to think of a better choice for Victoria than this Reef condo. The location is unbeatable: right on the harbor, easy walk to the center of activities, excellent shoreline walk toward cruise ship harbor and beach. We really felt like we were living in the best neighborhood in Victoria enjoying every aspect of the city. Outstanding unit with floor to ceiling windows on two sides and a large terrace. Unlike most rentals, which seem to be furnished as cheaply as possible, in this one every detail down to the glassware and dishes has been thought out and is first class. As good as the unit and location were, Nancy Martin's service was better. She was a total professional from before we arrived working through some hiccups in payment, to a very complete orientation on arrival, to immediately resolving the one or two very minor issues with the condo while there. If you are lucky enough to find a vacancy, take it as quick as you can

Exquiste location, a beautiful condo, wonderful management It's dynamite

  • 5 of 5

This was a second stay at his great condo but hopefully not the last.The views spectacular, the condo so well appointed, the access to seafood so convenient all in wonderful James Bay that it made my May truly terrific. The only hard part was coming home.You never know when you return somewhere if your expectations will be met; mine were exceeded. If I won the lottery I would try and make this condo my own. But for now I will depend on Nancy Martin to make me feel like an owner and ease my way into a wonderful vacation home. Really she and the condo owner were just terrific, easily overcoming my challenges of an awkward arrival time and a broken garage fob. The condo and the management have my unqualified recommendation.

Excellent condo and great management

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed at number of times at this remarkable condo and it has become our favourite holiday location. We will be returning again for the month of September for our fourth time. The condo is beautiful and bright and we find it very peaceful. The views from the condo are absolutely spectacular. My daughter and I are floatplane pilots so the non-stop floatplane action in the harbour, which we can view directly from our deck, is delightful to watch along with all of the other watercraft activity. We do not rent a vehicle when we are there and simply walk everywhere. Shopping, grocery store, restaurants, fresh seafood store, parks and beautiful walkways are closely located making this location ideal if you don't have a vehicle. The property manager has been exceptional and we have always received excellent service and care from her both leading up to our rental time and during our stay. She has kindly provided us a bottle of wine on each arrival and the condo has always been in prime condition. If we have had any questions or issues arise while we are on site she has always replied promptly and things were taken care of very quickly. We would not hesitate for a second to recommend both this property and manager.

Exceptional James Bay Condo Minutes to Downtown

  • 5 of 5

The condo photos are completely accurate but the flow of the unit, the world outside the windows (which changes with the time of day) and the energy of the building and location put it over the top. Management, caretaking and liveability are exceptional. I see the caretaker nearly everyday and he meticulously maintains the building and grounds to a very high standard. The unit is incredibly well stocked and cared for. Downtown is a few minutes stroll away and in July there is no limit to what you can see and do there. Every suburb of Victoria has its own appeal but the peacefulness of James Bay has to be the best. You will love wandering the leafy streets. Every amenity needed is close. This has been my favourite holiday. I am now planning my permanent return one day. Grateful!
