1403 West is a memorable Victoria sanctuary where the inner harbor and mountain vistas are framed by the 8-foot high glass “4th wall.” The newly designed interior space, complimented by the 460 sq. ft. outdoor deck give you a very spacious 1,340 sq. feet from which to enjoy Victoria.
Drink your morning coffee while watching seagulls glide by at eye level, or have a romantic sunset glass of wine watching the night lights of Victoria come to life in this excellent 14th floor contemporary sanctuary.
Whether you are an early riser watching the sunrise’s light wake-up Victoria, or you prefer sleeping in, relaxing, and being as leisurely as you like, the views from 1403 West are spectacular day and night.
Located in the vibrant, and wonderfully walkable downtown Victoria, you are close to all the places people come to Victoria to experience and enjoy. 1403 West provides you a relaxing, inviting, and comfortable place to come home to at the end of a day exploring the crown jewel of Canada’s west coast, Victoria.
This secure location with its easy to access underground, double gated parking is perfect for 2 or 4 guests. Your ample parking space is just outside the door to the elevators, which makes transferring your luggage to the 14th floor a breeze.
1403 West is conveniently located close to Victoria’s fabulous restaurants, markets, sports/concert arena, Chinatown, the inner harbor, government buildings, Imax, Beacon Hill park, the Galloping Goose Trail as well as the other attractions for which the capitol city of British Columbia is known.
Whether you are vegan, gluten-free or regular diner, your biggest dilemma, however, may be deciding which of Victoria’s fabulous restaurants you can get around to in just a week’s time. Of course, you are welcome to stay with us for two weeks to simplify your task. (http://www.tourismvictoria.com/things-to-do/restaurants/).
If you decide to stay in for breakfast, make it in your well-stocked kitchen while looking out at the inner harbor, and the coastal range mountains listening to your favourite music playing in the entertainment center. The public market and Yates Street markets are within short walking distances, and can provide all your culinary needs with much to choose from for you vegans and gluten-free folks too. Or if you prefer, take the elevator downstairs to the locally owned Macchiato Caffe & Paninoteca (macchiatocaffe.ca) where you can get freshly baked pastries, bread, bagels, coffee, teas, juice, ciders or a London Fog to help get your morning started.
For you runners, hikers and bikers, explore the Goose, the world class Galloping Goose Trail (http://www.gallopinggoosetrail.com/), which begins just a few blocks away at the Johnson Street Bridge. It offers 60 km of fantastic sights along the meandering trail from coastal waters to forest.
Bike rentals are available in Victoria from May to the early part of October. Bring your saddle and pedals to personalize the rental bikes. And be sure to make your arrangements before arrival. If you choose to bring your own bike, please check with Victoria Prime for convenient bike storage as bikes are not allowed in the building.
And for you water sport enthusiasts, kayaking and canoeing opportunities abound. From coastal kayaking the Juan de Fuca Strait with its whales and orcas to the Haro Strait and to the calmer experience of inner harbour and the Gorge Waterway, there are no shortages of experiences awaiting you. (http://www.hellobc.com/victoria/things-to-do/water-activities/kayaking-canoeing.aspx).
If you are walkers, Beacon Hill Park is for you. A beautiful park with ponds, flowers, peacocks, ducks, and deer on occasion, Beacon Hill has miles of paths. This urban jewel is just a short walk away. Be sure to bring your camera as the park abounds with picturesque photo opportunities year-round.
In addition, there are wonderful and spectacular golf courses to choose from around Victoria. In fact, you can see 1403 West from the Bear Mountain course. (http://golfvancouverisland.ca/vancouver-island-golf-courses/)
1403 West’s expansive deck is a great platform for photographers. You can shoot snow-covered Mt. Baker off to the northeast, the picturesque Gulf Islands towards the north, the Olympic Mountains in the southwest, not to mention Victoria, the harbour sights and sunsets to the west. Make sure to bring your favorite telephoto lens and a tripod. For those of you new to HDR, and wanting to create some memorable HDR shots, get a copy of The HDR Book by Rafael “RC” Concepcion for an insightful step by step guide. [https://www.amazon.com/HDR-Book-Unlocking-Post-Processing-Techniques/dp/0321966945]. RC has a couple of his photos taken from 1403 West in our Photos section on this site. For you photo buffs, the shot of Mt. Baker, which is about 70 miles away in Washington state, was taken using a Really Right Stuff TQC-14 tripod with a BH-30 ballhead, a Tamron 150-600mm lens, and a Nikon D810.
And the wonders of Victoria don’t stop with autumn. Vancouver Island is known for the mildest climate in Canada. 1403 West offers you a warm and cozy get-away from the harshness of East Coast winters. (http://livinginvictoriabc.com/general-info/victoria-bc-has-the-mildest-climate-in-canada).
