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. Although there is no parking included with the rental there is a secure parking garage ( Bastion square ) across Yates street where for a small fee you can park your vehicle. For more information on parking please google the "city of Victoria Bastion Parkade" as their website will have all the info you need.

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.

About John Beaumier

I am a Realtor® in Victoria where I own several investment properties.

If you are interested in property in Victoria, I offer vacation packages to people who are serious about buying property on the southern Island on my real estate website. You can find out more about me and my business by googling my last name which is Beaumier and Victoria, BC.

John Beaumier purchased this condo in 2010

Why John Beaumier chose Downtown

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.

Awesome rental in Downtown Victoria

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this loft. Such a great location in the heart of downtown Victoria. Walking distance to everything you need for a weekend away in Victoria. Has an amazing patio, perfect for our morning coffee and evening glass of wine. Kitchen was stocked with all you need, and the loft bed was super comfy. We would love to stay here again next time we are in Victoria. The only thing that was difficult was the key situation, one was not left in the lock box for us, so we had to contact the cleaning staff. She promptly met us and gave us the key. Only a minor issue, but was quickly forgotten once we got into the loft. Thanks for a great stay. :)

Terrific location

  • 3 of 5

Very central to really good restaurants and sights in downtown Victoria.

Great to have a washing machine and dryer and extra space (compared to a hotel room). Nice courtyard.

Needs a properly fitting toilet seat. Also the toilet doesnt shut down after flushing. Bar stools are too large for the space - take up too much space.

Well equipped kitch n but we did not use.

Would have likes another option for bed covers. The quilt was too hot, but cold without it.

With a few tweaks would be fantastic.

Owner's Response: I appreciate the feedback Bruce, if you had only had a look in the downstairs closet you would have found another option for a comforter for the bed. I agree that the bar stools are a little large but any other options I have come across that took up less space have been very uncomfortable to sit on for more than a few minutes while the ones I chose can be tucked up closely to the bar and out of the way when not being used. The toilet seat is the one that came from the manufacturer but I will be sure to keep an eye out for one with a better fit. I really take pride in my rental and try to make improvements to it on a monthly basis so will try and keep your suggestions in mind for the future. Hopefully if you decide to visit Victoria again you will decide to stay with us again and I can only hope that your experience will be a little more in line with those of all my other guests.

A lovely base to explore downtown

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the loft. It's a well-decorated, comfortable and private space that manages to be quiet while nestled in the heart of downtown. Very happy having chosen this for the weekend in Victoria, and would definitely recommend it.

Perfect downtown location to see Victoria.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is tastefully decorated and well stocked. When you get sick of restaurants you can prepare your own meals in the good sized kitchen. The bed is also very comfortable. The historic building and alleyway are unique and quaint but also utilitarian - in a busy downtown where parking on the street can be tough, we used the alley to load and unload our gear. The parkade across the street had space even though we happened to check in during the new bridge ceremony so downtown was packed. Street parking is free after 6 and in all honesty parking was cheap compared to most cities. We will be staying here next time we go to Victoria.
