This new, well-appointed 2 bedroom suite is walking distance to downtown Victoria, the Inner Harbor, Craigdarroch Castle, Government House, the Victoria Art Gallery, and Fernwood Village. Also a lovely stroll to Oak bay village, Cook Street Village, Beacon Hill park and the beach. We are central and convenient to all downtown amenities.
The suite, boasting 960 square feet (90 square meters) of comfortable west coast living with two bedrooms, is located on the upper floor of a completely renovated, 120 year old character home (rebuild completed in the fall of 2015).
Featuring a large, open concept living/dining/kitchen space, gas fireplace, all new stainless steel appliances, gas range, Brazilian granite counter-tops with under-mount sinks, all custom built cabinetry and two bedrooms with new queen size beds. There is also a queen size futon for additional accommodation. A crib and booster seat is available on request.
Large windows turn all rooms into bright and sunny living spaces.
To complete the picture there is a 95sqft (9sqmt) covered balcony (complete with gas grill) overlooking the lovely gardens in the backyard, with a view to downtown Victoria and the inner harbor. This is a perfect spot to sit and enjoy your morning coffee and paper, visit with friends, or a lazy afternoon of reading. In the evening, watch the sun set over downtown and the inner harbor after grilling the perfect meal!
The bright, kitchen is well stocked with everything to keep the cooks among you happy. A perfect place to prepare all the fresh local meats and produce available from the local markets or the "catch of the day" from Fisherman's Wharf.
Wireless internet, cable tv, laundry, off street parking, and an ideal location for those wanting to be close to all the amenities, completes the picture.
Not only a great vacation spot but a comfortable temporary home for those on the road. Perfect for longer stays.
