Facing the mouth of the Victoria, B.C. harbour, our condo is light-filled from sunrise to sunset, yet cooled by breezes off the water. On the edge of a waterfront park/walkway, we are a 15 minute stroll from the centre of town with easy access to a wide variety of activities, entertainment and shopping. The condo has a large living dining area with excellent views, an efficient kitchen equipped with new appliances, a large master bedroom with ensuite and walk in closet, second bedroom/study furnished with a comfortable sofa bed, a second bathroom with shower only, a separate laundry, and two small decks. On the main floor of an eight-storey building, it is more than a full storey above the ground and fully secure.

The neighbourhood

Type:Coastal

Victoria is situated on the southern tip of Vancouver Island (450+ km long, 100 km wide), 35 km across the straight from the Olympic mountains in Washington State, USA, and known for the beauty and variety of its gardens and ocean-side drives. The Island offers a wide variety of outdoor activities - hiking, kayaking, salt and fresh water fishing, golf, mountain biking, camping, sailing, etc., outstanding scenery, and a temperate seacoast climate similar to mid France or southern England, with wet winters and dry summers. Vancouver/the mainland are a 2.5 hour bus/ferry ride away.
