Overview

About the property

Condo, Studio + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Located in historic Waddington alley in beautiful Victoria, British Columbia you will find my beautiful loft at Morley's Soda Factory, a Heritage conversion by local builder Chris LeFaivre. I was lucky to get my hands on this place as he was planning on keeping it and I was in the right place at the right time and snapped it up when he decided to let it go. As it is on the backside of this 1886 soda factory, it is incredibly quiet and feels quite open due to the high ceilings and walk-out private patio in the hidden courtyard. Most of the decor in the unit is fairly modern and all of it is quite high end, it has concrete floors and carpet upstairs in the loft. The kitchen is equipped with just about everything the chef needs, with granite counters and a dishwasher. The four piece bath has shower / soaker tub, towels and soap and in the living room the sofa pulls out into a bed,

The unit is amazingly quiet for being in the centre of downtown's hustle and bustle and within walking distance of just about everything the city has to offer. There is a secure parking garage ( Bastion square ) across Yates street where for a small fee you can park your vehicle.

Whether it is the Lojo shopping district, the world famous inner harbour, the city's finest restaurants or Victoria's nightlife you will find it within seconds of your door step. The sea plane terminal is less than a five minute walk away and is where you can catch a thirty minute flight to downtown Vancouver or to the south terminal at Vancouver international airport.

I can guarantee this is one of the most unique, vacations rentals you will find in Victoria. I have put a lot of love into it and I am sure you will enjoy your stay.

Keywords: A quiet historic loft with modern furnishings and a private garden patio only steps from the harbour and the cities best shopping, restaurants, attractions and events.

Why John Beaumier chose Victoria

This is a one of a kind and I have seen nothing like it in all my years in Victoria real estate.

What makes this condo unique

You have it all at my Waddington flat, you are steps away from some of the city's best restaurants and hippest nightclubs yet while in the suite it is perfectly quiet and you really have no idea that you are in the heart of downtown. The unit features a massive garden patio that you would maybe expect in something in the suburbs but you are maybe a hundred and fifty feet from the inner harbour. If you could see through the back wall of the courtyard you would be looking into Ill Terrazo which is consistently rated as one of the top restaurants in the city.

Serene and stylish. An oasis!

  • 5 of 5

John's place is perfectly situated to enjoy Victoria. It's in a hopping neighborhood, but is tucked away in a historic building down one of Victoria's many cool alleys, so that it feels incredibly peaceful. The outdoor space is a lovely retreat--we had our coffee out there (when we weren't checking out one of the city's many hip java joints). All in all, a super-cool space and a perfect stay!
