About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Located in the vibrant heart of downtown Victoria, the Queen Victoria Royal leaves nothing more than five minutes from your fingertips.

Stunning 360° rooftop views of the ocean horizon, Victoria’s Historic District, China town, Antique Row and exquisite cathedrals built by European explorers first to discover the wild beauty of British Columbia. Spend your days absorbing the sunny coast while touring Centennial Square, Jazz Fest and the many other spectacular events of the Season. All while the art of local musicians echo over the magnificent Pacific Ocean. Excite the night with breathtaking walks across Dallas Beach. Enjoy Market Square and live entertainment at the Inner Harbor lit up by the Parliament buildings wrapped in Sparkling lights. Wind down your evening with drinks and dinner at one of our many lounges, jazz clubs, five star restaurants or on the private roof top with a barbeque dinner and a glass of wine, while you relax at home in the rooftop Zen garden embracing the view of the city, the spectacular sunset symphony of colors. Meditate to the music of the city night.

Day trip by sail to Seattle on the Clipper, Helijet to Vancouver or ride to Tofino for Sensational surf. Or maybe you could just relax right here and enjoy the endless possibilities waiting right beneath your balcony.

Why Victoria Royal Vacations chose Downtown

I choose to buy a vacation rental unit in the Juliet building because the view from the suite is like a dream in Heaven. The gorgeous Sunsets down over the Pacific Ocean horizon and under the majestic snow-capped mountains. Every day the picture is different and more beautiful. From the living-dining room and the bedroom there is a 180 degree panoramic views of the Inner Harbour and the Victoria City Centre. It is one of the most beautiful places that I have ever seen. Once I saw it I wanted to share that beauty with the rest of the world.

What makes this condo unique

There are two beautiful Juliet balconies - one located in the living-dining room and one in the bedroom overlooking the Pacific Ocean with a panoramic view of the Victoria Inner Harbour and City centre. Relax on the sofa in the dining room or dine or enjoy the magnificent sunset from the privacy of your own bedroom while inhaling the fresh summer breeze coming from the Pacific ocean through the French doors of your suite. Capture the magic and romance of the city. On Canada day you can view the glories fireworks from the privacy of your living-dining room or from the Juliet balcony

Suite is very comfortable and well equipped with fantastic views over the city to the water and mountains. It is well situated for exploring the downtown area. We would definitely book with Victoria Royal Vacations again.

This is a great looking apartment with all the accommodations that I wanted:

Accomodations: Nice view, separate bedroom space, full kitchen, laundry en suite, and very clean. There are a few quirks, however! Please remember to bring shampoo, conditioner & laundry detergent as not even a sample of these are provided. The kitchen has salt & pepper & spray oil to help with food. (That is all) They do not provide coffee--not even a sample- or creamer or sugar packs. So, if you are extremely tired, remember to find the grocery store before you decide to unpack. The bed is very comfortable but the sheets are "pilly" so if you have texture issues, you may wish to bring your own bedding. The windows provide a great view, but the apartment gets very hot because of the sun access. Opening the windows allows all the sounds of the street to become part of your experience.

Access to the building: The property manager does a good job at sending a "form" email to you prior to arrival. If you respond to the email, don't expect to get a personalized response. This makes for frustrations on initial access. We waited 40 minutes outside the building (there is a coffee shop) for someone to arrive with the key faubs. The instructions say you can perform self check in. But not sure how that is realistic because they do not provide the code to access the building--only a key faub. Once we had the faub we didn't have any issues. The lady who met us was very friendly and very helpful.

Location: This apartment is within walking distance to the inner harbor, local shopping and harbor attractions. There is currently a high-rise under construction right outside the window. So, if you are planning to stay during a weekday, be prepared for jackhammers, steel clanging, heavy equipment back up alarms and engine noises during business hours. On Saturday these didn't happen. Also, the street the building is located is where the social services are available to transients and homeless people, so you will see a different mix of locals and get to hear some mentally ill people screaming at themselves. The ambulances and police are very proud of their sirens and like to run them in the middle of the night.

(If the window is open, it can sound like it is coming from inside the apartment) During our walk we discovered other streets nearby that were much more quiet.

Remember to read the binder-. It provides very specific directions that may affect your total cost.

Great location! Beautiful view! Excellent building!

  • 4 of 5

The suite is very well-appointed and well-maintained. Beautiful view of downtown. Easy walking distance to so many Victoria attractions, shops and restaurants. Building is very secure. Rooftop is amazing.

Our first night was the Saturday of a long weekend and there was definitely an issue with noise downtown. After the weekend was done it was much better.

Overall would definitely recommend.

Great room, but service was lacking

  • 3 of 5

First, let me say that given everything that happened, I have no regrets about staying here. The room was very nice and had a great view. It was the customer service that was lacking and hopefully they make improvements in this area.

When we checked in, we were given the option to have someone meet us there. (You definitely want to have someone meet you there because there is no way to use the elevator without a key fob.) So a woman (Diane) met us there and the code we were given for our room didn't work (the room is locked with a code). So even if we had made it upstairs on our own, we would not have been able to get in. Then, the two fobs that were left there didn't work either. If she hadn't figured this out, at some point we would've been stuck outside with no way to get in. She managed to leave us with one key fob that worked. Unfortunately, she didn't know the area (she had just moved there) and couldn't answer any questions about where the nearest store was, etc.

There is a binder in the room with info in it, however the restaurant discounts mentioned don't exist. There was supposed to be a discount for the Indian restaurant Sizzling Tandoor, but the restaurant said there wasn't. Also, the binder mentions a coupon that isn't there.

We were there for 11 days in July and the room gets afternoon sun, so it gets very warm in the afternoons. There is no central A/C and no one told us that there was a portable A/C unit in the closet. We finally found this on the third day and started using it. It works very well, just put the vent hose outside the balcony door.

We considered using the rooftop BBQ but it was dirty, even though people are supposed to clean it after they use it. The view up there is nice, however the seats are not very comfortable and it can get quite windy so it's not somewhere that you want to hang out.

After being there about a week, we got a call from the downstairs entry. I wasn't expecting anyone, nor did I know how to buzz anyone in. A few minutes later, people were trying to get into our room, using a different code. It was quite frightening! I called Radie's number and a man answered, saying they were supposed to check into the room next to us. I felt really bad for the family, whose wife had to go back downstairs just to call someone. No one came to help them.

Overall, I felt like the people managing these units were not very organized or responsive. I would wait days and sometimes get no email response.

Beautiful space

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 3 nights here at the beginning of December. It is a beautiful building in a very convenient location. The condo has everything you'll need for a ocomfortable stay. The owners were very helpful and accommodating. I would stay here again.

Great vacation rental!

  • 4 of 5

This is a corner, top-floor unit, and the rooftop deck has some pretty great views. The unit itself has an abundance of windows and glass doors, so there is plenty of natural light inside. The owner was helpful and very courteous. It is not in the most touristy part of town, but well under a mile from it, and we enjoyed a little walk. I'm also not sure I would really want to stay in the touristy part of town. One of the best things about it was Lady Marmalade, the restaurant downstairs. The only downside when we were there was that apparently somewhere within a block or two is a nightclub with some pretty loud music. I'm a pretty deep sleeper, and it still woke me up once or twice. But it seemed to not be open more than one night a week when we were there. And there was a lot going on around town that week. An aircraft carrier was docked or anchored nearby, which apparently is quite rare. It was on the news, even. On the whole, I liked this rental almost as much as I like Victoria itself, and I really, really loved visiting Victoria.

P.S.: Its been too long since I visited for me to enter the date of my arrival, which was on or about June 9, 2014. But it's a required field so I had to fib.
