About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath, Sleeps 4

Urban sophistication and sumptuous luxury is yours to experience as you enjoy a taste of life in Canada’s “Mediterranean” city, Victoria. Soaring 15 stories above Victoria’s inner harbour, this vacation home is simply magnificent. Spectacular views are offered from every vantage point in this large corner suite, from the floor to ceiling windows in the bedrooms, to the wall-to-wall gazing windows in the open-concept grand living area, to the amazing porcelain tiled, glass railed wrap-around balcony – the city is yours to discover! The Falls offers calming water feature pools, beautiful landscape gardens, and spectacular cascading waterfalls as part of its amazing architectural features.

Conveniently located within comfortable walking distance of everything you want to explore, from Beacon Hill Park to the famous rose gardens of the Empress Hotel to the hustle and bustle of Canada's oldest Chinatown – you are within mere steps of the artisans who display their wares in the Inner Harbour, and across the street from Victoria’s most famous entertainment hotspot, the “Sticky Wicket”. Amazing pub fare, night club dancing, and a game of outdoor roof-top beach volleyball are yours to enjoy any night of the week. Don’t feel like crossing the street? Take the elevator down to the main floor, and enjoy a meal at Browns Socialhouse. Need only a snack? There is a 24-hour 7-11 on the main floor as well. Feel like eating in? Whip up a meal in the chef-approved kitchen while enjoying the panoramic harbour view of the setting evening sun, followed by the breathtaking twinkle of the city’s lights at night.

Exhausted by the adventures you’ve enjoyed, rotate the black leather headboard of your bed so that you are facing the wall-to-ceiling window, turn on the white-noise fan to erase the sounds of the nightlife surrounding you, then drift off to sleep on the tempurpedic mattress, snuggled under a goose down duvet. Pleasant dreams, as your thoughts turn to tomorrow’s adventures – shopping, horse-drawn carriage ride, fine dining, galleries and more will be yours to explore.

Very nice condo with amazing views

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed in this beautiful condo for 1 week. It has a beautiful view of the harbour and the balcony is a very nice place to enjoy the sunset. The kitchen is fully stocked for those who want to cook. The condo is very well maintained and does not look run down like a lot of rental units. There was a fair bit of noise from the rooftop bar located next door. The owner Valerie told us about this several times before our arrival. Valeri is very helpful and pleasant to deal with. We would rent this property again.

The rooftop bar right across the street provides late night noise beyond being acceptable. The master bed was very difficult to get out of because of the wide padded rail. The living room furniture was not comfortable for 'lounging'. In a positive note: The condo was clean.

Owner's Response: Our condo is located in the heart of downtown Victoria and with that comes noise from the surrounding activities. Most travelers find the location to be a wonderful asset due to it's proximity to all the restaurants and attractions. If you are looking for a quiet retreat another property outside of the downtown core might be a better option.

Stayed here twice in last year for 3 weeks and 1 week, respectively. Truly excellent accommodation and location - all amenities & great views. Plus, owner is appropriately responsive, organized & helpful, but non-intrusive.

Elegant condo - great location and amazing view and amenities.

  • 5 of 5

This condo was absolutely beautiful with the highest quality construction, furniture, amenities, etc. The entire front room directly overlooks the Victoria Harbor and we spent quite a bit of time on the balcony or from the front room just watching the city go by. The condo has a full kitchen, well stocked for cooking or entertaining. Both bedrooms were also well appointed, with incredibly comfortable beds. While we look forward to staying here again, I would not recommend this property to those looking to bring children. The high quality of the furniture and amenities also comes with the risk of items being broken. Additionally, I would not feel safe having kids with any access to the balcony as the railings are fairly low and there condo is quite high up. Otherwise, I highly recommend this property!

Everything about this place is perfect from the furnishings to the monogramed wash cloths. It is equipped with anything you would need for a home. The view is like watching a beautiful painting that changes from night throughout the day. I cannot forget to mention Valerie, who is so helpful and works to make your stay the best possible.

Great location next to the Empress Fairmount with incredible views. Walking distance to everything that you need from great restuarants, grocery stores, shopping, Oldest China town in Canada, etc. It is quality accommodation and the owner Val is wonderful. One of the best VRBO I have ever booked.
