- We try to stock the apartment with the basics to make your stay more enjoyable: shampoo/conditioner, cooking tools, spices and oil, laundry detergent, books, etc.

Full access to entire loft apartment. Roof top patio has great view of Harbour!

The Neighbourhood

Close to everything-in the heritage side of town. Canoe Brew pub is right next door! Water taxi within steps. Walking score is 98/100.

It should be noted that being downtown -it can have some noise-they are constructing the new Johnson Street bridge next door

Yes-very easy by bus and taxi or walking and airport shuttle...

About Julie Sullivan

My husband and I are longtime Victoria residents, having made our way west from the snowy central part of Canada....We are industrial hygienists by profession, which means we try to keep workers safe from hazards such as asbestos and lead etc etc. It is fun and challenging work!

We are looking forward to being able to travel more and get to see all the wonderful places our guests tell us about!

Julie Sullivan purchased this condo in 2014

Why Julie Sullivan chose Downtown

When we retire, we plan to live here part time-it cannot be beat for conveniences and comfort. South facing we get the sun and never even need to turn on the heat-even in January, although the fireplace is cozy!

What makes this condo unique

concrete, very secure, great roof top deck!

Perfect apartment

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this apartment. The apartment is on the third floor, with elevators in a very secure building, with access to the rooftop with gorgeous views. Julie and Bill were very helpful when we arrived with places to eat and information on the water taxi. We will definitely stay here again.

Great location & perfect condo in Victoria!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a couple nights in this wonderful condo. The condo is exactly as described and is very clean. The kitchen and bathroom is very well stocked and has everything you could need. The roof top deck has a great view. The location was easy walk from the ferry & blocks from Chinatown. Tayler was great to work with and getting the key for check-in was a breeze. We would definitely stay here again and I have already recommended it to a friend. Thanks again for a wonderful stay!

Perfect condo and in Victoria

  • 5 of 5

Taylor was a great host and take care of everything with a really easy communication. The appartement is amazing and super clean. Very well furnished to cooking also. We opened the big window to get fresh air from the Bay. It is very modern and tv and wifi worked very well. The patio on roof offer great view! The location is really perfect and the pub just beside is really great also. Will recomand this appartment to my friend and family for sure!!!

Perfect location, nice amenities, would definitely stay there again.

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 2 adults and 2 kids (4 and 6) stayed here for two nights in July. It was very comfortable, had far more plusses than minuses. We would definitely stay there again.

PLUSSES: 1) The location is perfect - out of the downtown fray, but a quick 1 min walk to Chinatown, a tiny bit longer 10min walk to the harbor, and literally just a few steps from the Chinatown water taxi stop (with connex to all over the harbor) and from the Canoe Brewpub (a top notch brewpub with great waterfront patio in the rehabbed warehouse next door). 2) The condo was clean, had all the appliances you'd need, was intimate but not overcrowded for our family of 4 (although we live in a 1300 sq foot home usually). 3) Perhaps one of the best perks is the rooftop patio, while more difficult for the kids to see much by the adult-chest-high wall, it was just about perfect to hang out and watch the sunset over Victoria harbor while sipping beers bought in a growler next door at Canoe. The kids did like reading bedtime stories under the stars to the sound of seagulls and clanking boat tackle. 4) Our liaison at the condo was friendly, communicative, and really easy to work with.

MINUSES (may not apply to everyone): 1) curtains were broken so we couldn't really open them easily - but we were warned when we arrived that they had just been broken - probably will be fixed by the time you come. 2) our Subaru with cargo box wouldn't fit in the secure building parking garage, so had to be parked in the open lot next door for a small fee and moved by 6 am; 3) only portable A/C unit, so didn't cool down super fast (although to be honest, I think we had really bad luck, because we were there on a few of the hottest days of the year, and normally you wouldn't need an A/C at all and would get a great breeze off the harbor).

Thanks and see you next time!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your detailed review! It is much appreciated-and sorry that the blinds were not working while you were there. They were fixed as soon as we could get the repair person in. We hope we will see you again some day!
