About the property

Jr 1 Bedroom, Sleeps 4, 1 Bathroom, Best Location Downtown

Welcome to the Era Retreat. A junior one bedroom, one bathroom suite located right in the heart of downtown Victoria. This is an upscale unit in an one and half year old building that includes all the necessities and comforts of home. It has a well laid out kitchen with stainless steel appliances (stove top, oven, microwave, and dishwasher), a convenient eating bar and in suite laundry. A deep soaker tub to rejuvinate your bones after a long day of exploring all the corners of the city. Two high-definition televisions with cable and PVR, complimentary wifi, a Blue Ray DVD player, stereo, board games, and a landline phone for local calls provide entertainment without even leaving the suite. There are 11 underground guest parking spaces available on a first come first served basis. No guarantee of a space but street parking is free from 6 pm to 9 am Mondays to Saturdays, and free all day Sundays. There is also a parkade on the street behind our building.

The unit can accommodate up to 4 people with a queen size bed and a sofa that pulls out into a comfy double bed. Sorry no pets.

Enjoy your coffee on the furnished deck in the morning sun or sip a glass of wine in the afternoon/evening and watch the vibrant downtown action around you.

Just steps outside the door you will find every type of restaurant to please your palate, a movie theatre right next door, museums, bars, shopping, sightseeing, and night clubs to keep your days and nights busy. Historical Chinatown (we recommend Fan Tan Cafe for the best Chinese food!), the Inner Harbour, Fisherman's Wharf, City Hall, Victoria Public Market, Market Square, the Parliament Buildings, Government Street, Empress Hotel, Antique Row, and theatres are all within walking distance. Other must-see attractions that are outside of the downtown area include Butchart's Gardens, Goldstream Park, the Town of Sidney, and many beautiful golf courses for the golfers.

Victoria is a beautiful, friendly, city that offers many attractions and activities for an amazing and affordable vacation. Come and enjoy all that Victoria has to offer.

Portable Air Conditioner for that extra level of comfort

If this Unit is booked for the period you are interested in, starting April 15th 2017 we have another brand new condo with inner harbor water views, The Janion, downtown. Please let us know if you are interested.

  • 5 of 5

We spent 9 days here over the Christmas holidays. We were greeted with a Christmas tree in our condo which was thoughtful and a nice touch. We liked all the furnishings and decor. We didn't want for anything and even more than we expected. So comfortable to come back to after a busy day or evening. Able to walk to all of the downtown and the close proximity to China town,coffee shops,shopping and restaurants was nice for us. Our host was friendly and informative and smiling all the time. Everything was set up in such a way that even seniors as ourselves easily used the parking garage,elevator and all appliances . Thank you for a worry free stay and hope to one day return.

Great location, Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Our first time in Victoria, and this place was great! Rick met us at the unit to let us in and show us around. Very nice! It's in a very good location with the liquor store directly across the street, above a bakery and coffee shop. We walked everywhere. To dinner, the castle, the water. Great condo. Nice and clean. We were able to do a load of laundry and watch our college and NFL games too. We would stay here again for sure. Thanks Rick!
