Property description

Booking a property through Victoria Prime ensures you get the highest quality property for the best value and nobody beats our customer service. Start with Liz and Maureen who personally work with you to make sure you find the right property for your specific needs or wants. Send us your wish list; we know all of the properties personally and can steer you in the right direction.

We make the booking process easy and secure, no hassles or worries. You can book online through our secure website and see all about us, our properties and services; or just give us a call and we will book for you on the phone.

Please Note: VRBO is now quoting in US dollars as the default currency, email us for a proper bookable quote link. You can also go to the Rates page on VRBO and at the top right hand corner you will see a drop down that will allow you to see the rates in the currency of your choice. As we are in Canada, our rates are set in Canadian Dollars. In any case, the settlement will occur on your credit card in your currency and the exchange rate given will depend on the policies of your bank.

After booking, you will be introduced to one of the members of our wonderful concierge team, who will answer all of your questions, and working with you to arrange a time to meet and greet you at the property so they can offer a proper building and unit orientation, make sure you know how to use everything and know the best places to go.

We hope you will let us show you what customer service is all about. It is the fun part for us after all.

(Note: Due to recent changes made by VRBO, our GUEST REVIEWS written into our guest books we have in our properties, have been moved to the MANAGER INFO tab right next to Photos. We at Victoria Prime greatly appreciate any and all feedback from our guests, but do not like to hound people to write a review online if they are not comfortable with that process. We find most of our guests enjoy sharing their experiences while relaxing in the condo after a fun filled day or they often respond to our thank you email and share their experiences then. We post them all, even if they are imperfect. We hope you will have a look.)

This is one of downtown Victoria's best condos in one of Victoria's Inner Harbour's best buildings. The Astoria gets high praise from both owners and renters as a wonderful place to call home (even if for just a few nights).

It is but a stone's throw to Victoria’s bustling Inner Harbour. Easy walking to the Empress Hotel, Royal BC Museum, Parliament Buildings, harbour ferries & seaplane services, specialty shops, theatres, symphony, Fisherman's Wharf, Victoria's Bug Zoo, Beacon Hill Park (our favorite) and so much more. Downtown Victoria provides a huge number of wonderful cafes, bistros, pubs and restaurants.

Secure underground parking comes with your rental with us.

Being a southwest corner unit, Astoria Vista offers you views of historic Parliament Buildings, cruise ships coming & going, Juan de Fuca Strait & the snowy peaks of the Olympic Mountains and beyond. All of this from inside the condo looking through the expansive windows and also from the two balconies.

Inside, you will find the living areas and kitchen done in bamboo flooring and the bedrooms carpeted. The fully equipped kitchen has stainless steel appliances and many extras to ensure you have all that you need to create your next culinary masterpiece.
To save you time and money, the following amenities are provided: paper products (including paper towels and toilet paper), bags for waste, plastic wrap and foil, hand soaps, shampoo, dish and laundry soap, salt and pepper, sugar and oil too.

The living room has a large flat screen HDTV with an excellent cable package and a music library and high speed internet for your enjoyment. Oh, and for an extra great feature, if you are a Netflix addict like I am, the DVD player here will let you access your own Netflix account and watch away!
We know that most people travel with their own music playing device, so we have equipped this condo with a player so you can do just that. Comfortable furniture and a spacious feel draw you in to relax and enjoy the views. You've just got to sit in the big round spinning chair placed right in the window. It is amazing!

The master bedroom has a King Size bed, and a shower tub combination in the full ensuite bathroom. Windows in the master look to and through one balcony for 'to die for' views.

The second bedroom has a Queen size bed, a nice desk and (once again) wonderful views.
The second full bathroom has a stall shower, perfect for anyone with mobility challenges.
A secure underground Private Parking space is included in the rent.

The Astoria building has an amenities/lounge on the first floor with a billiards table and is great for a meeting place. The fitness room is adjacent to the amenities room for your workouts.

  • Booking Fee Estimate $38.24

Notes:

PAYMENT An advance payment of 50% of the rental rate is required to reserve the desired dates. The advance payment will be applied toward the room rent. Payments outside of Canada may be made in the form of credit cards (Visa, MasterCard) or bank transfers. Bank money orders, cashier’s cheques or personal cheques are payment options (for Canadians only) payable to Victoria Prime. Cheques must be secured by a credit card authorization while in route. Email transfers (Canadian banks only) can be sent to contact@victoriaprime.com. The advance payment is not a damage deposit. The BALANCE OF RENT is due sixty (60) days before your arrival date. All payments are in CANADIAN DOLLARS. All reservations will be charged a Booking Fee.

CREDIT CARD AGREEMENT Guests must provide credit card details as a guarantee of payment to Victoria Prime. Guests accept all terms and conditions of the rental agreement and accept all liability for rent and charges related to property rental, as well as any damage beyond normal wear and tear during the term of the rental. Guests understand that these costs will be charged to the credit card provided. In the absence of another payment agreement, guests authorize Victoria Prime to charge the credit card provided for payment of these items. The guest whose credit card is on file alone is liable for all payments and damages on a reservation and is fully responsible for the full reservation rent and charges.

CANCELLATIONS A sixty (60) day notice is required for cancellation. Cancellations that are made more than 60 days prior to the arrival date will be refunded less a $50 admin fee. Cancellations or changes that result in a shortened stay, that are made within 60 days of the arrival date, forfeit the full payment. Cancellation or early departure does not warrant any refund of rent, deposit or cleaning fee. However, if we are able to re-rent the property for the dates cancelled, we will be happy to refund all or any part of that.

50% of the rental rate is required to reserve the desired dates.

The balance of rent is due sixty (60) days before your arrival date.

Victoria Prime Services-Vacation Rentals

Year Purchased: 2010

About: We are Liz and Bruce of Victoria Prime Personal Property Management and we manage this property on behalf of the owners. You can learn all about us and even more about this property on our website.

Why Downtown (Downtown, Victoria, BC, Canada):
There are only a certain number of properties with all of the features this one has. The views are the first reason, the quality and reputation of the Astoria building itself is the second, and the location is third. Shall I go on?

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Location, location! If you have visited our website, you may have seen our Astoria Artistry unit. This condo has the same unique quality as that one because the owner is an artist and has decorated the condo with replications of her work. You can purchase and take home an original if you love it!
