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.

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.

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.

Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay in this cozy condo. Walking distance to many great restaurants and various tourist spots. Was disappointed in having to pick up the key in the rain, with our luggage, a couple of blocks away as opposed to just going to the loft, as we had to climb over a homeless person panhandling on the doorstep but it wasn't the last homeless person that we saw in Victoria. King size bed was very comfortable; shower and towels were great; well equipped kitchen; couch and chair comfortable and throw provided in loft was a plus.

Very cozy and comfortable. Great location. Suitable for short term stays. Ideal for 1-2 people.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our week staying at this delightful loft in an old historic building in downtown Victoria. Fantastic location, centrally located we could walk everywhere. We did have a car for touring and parked in nearby parade which

was cheap. Great restaurants nearby, close to shopping on Government Street. Loft was comfortable and clean. We had a problem connecting to wifi but after contacting owner problem was solved quickly. My reason for not giving 5 stars was that there were dirty dishes in dishwasher upon our arrival. Perhaps a tea kettle could be added to kitchen. Overall, a wonderful stay. Would recommend staying here.

Owner's Response: Sorry about the dishes in the dishwasher, I am going to have to speak to my cleaner about this. Other than that I am glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and would be happy to have you back in the future. John Beaumier

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was clean, comfortable and could not have been more convenient. We were able to walk almost everywhere. There was an inexpensive parking garage just across Yates and lots of nearby restaurants. We had a great stay. Thanks John!
