Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (sleeps 2)
About Carol Johnson
We love the coast and all that it offers. Even though we can't live there at this time, it never leaves us. We think our condo is in the perfect location to explore Victoria as well as to relax and to recharge. Because it is a gem of a place, we want to share it it with others. John is a construction superintendent and I just retired from teaching.
Carol Johnson purchased this Condo in 2010
Why Carol Johnson chose Downtown
The first time we walked down Swift street to the condo, we knew we had found something special. We had a view of the water which became even better once we entered our unit. It is spacious, bright and from the living room, we can forget time as we watch the activity in the water.front. When we want to leave our tranquil environment, we can walk to restaurants, shopping and trails.
What makes this Condo unique
We have a private rooftop garden with views of the Johnson Street Bridge, inner harbour and the waterway. Whether you view this from the rooftop or the condo, you will feel a calmness and a sense of peace. Enjoy the fresh fruit grown on the rooftop. We have strawberries, cherries and apples. The bright flowers add an abundance of colour and mixes well with the smell of the sea.
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
We loved our stay at the condo. It is beautifully updated and has everything we needed. We loved our evenings on the rooftop patio with a glass of wine before heading out to dinner. The location is perfect. Close to great coffee, restaurants, shops, and all the sights of Victoria. Carol and Colette were easy to work with. We hope to get back!
Great stay in Victoria BC!
A good sized one bedroom apartment. Nicely furnished living area with a full kitchen made for an enjoyable stay. King size bed was very comfortable. Location is great as you are right by China Town so everything in downtown is within easy walking distance.
Wonderful harbourside apartment.
Communication with the owner Carol was excellent. We were greeted at the property by Colette who showed us around the apartment and explained everything we needed to know.
The apartment is exceptional. The quality of the kitchen furniture and design is outstanding. The rooftop terrace is an absolute joy. From viewing the harbour to watching the float planes come into land made my stay.
The comfort inside is wonderful and the bed is one of the most comfortable we have ever slept in.
Thank you again Carol and Colette. I cannot recommend this property enough. We have stayed in many lovely accommodations and this ranks as one of the very best. If we come back to Victoria this is where we will stay as it is also close to restaurants and attractions. If you visit Victoria and use homeaway stay here...you will not be disappointed.
We would love to have you return. It feels good to know the condo was comfortable and made your stay in Victoria so positive. Take care.

From it you have views of the Inner Harbour, Olympic Mountains, Gorge Waterway and Chinatown. Boutiques, art galleries, shopping and restaurants galore are steps away. During the day, enjoy the bustle of the harbour, teaming with ferries, float planes and kayakers. In the evening, marvel at the brightly lit Parliament Buildings.
In the summer take in the many festivals, the Sunday market, street performances and other cultural events. In the winter snuggle in the comfy condo, light the gas fireplace complete with a hand finished hearth and listen to music, read a book, watch a movie or TV.
Historic Chinatown is steps away from the condo. Meander through Fantan Alley to learn about its significance. Enjoy a meal, buy fresh vegetables and fruit or browse through the many shops.
Galloping Goose Trail is adjacent to the condo. This is an extensive trail system on which you can walk, run, bike, cycle or ride a horse. It follows the old railway line.
Horse drawn carriages take you through the inner harbour past historic sites and places of interest. If you prefer, double decker busses are available to take you on sight seeing tours. The tours include trips to Butchart Gardens, wine tours and tours up island. The Harbour Island ferry can be caught at Mermaid Wharf. It takes you up the Gorge, Fisherman's Wharf and the Empress Hotel (to name a few).
The Royal BC Museum and IMAX theater is always worth a visit. It houses the human and natural history of BC and brings in exhibits from other countries.
