Description

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).

 

1403 West is a bright, airy, quiet, romantic and private 14th floor experience that is just a click away. Local managers personally meet you and walk you through the property to show you how everything works and will help you with all of your planning needs and offer concierge services as well. We look forward to your stay with us. Please check availability in the Instant Quote box for your dates.

 

Welcome to Victoria, the shining crown of Canada’s west coast.

My wife Jennifer, 8 year old daughter Sabine, and I decided to spend a week out in Victoria in June traveling in from Tampa, Florida. This was our first time out to Victoria and wanted to feel like we could experience as much as possible. We stayed at 1403 West in the Juliet. To date, we cannot not stop gushing as to how amazing the entire experience was! Our concierge, Dani, met us outside of the property as soon as we arrived. On checking in, we were immediately given the low down on the area, and pointed to the book where we could find some of the best eateries in Victoria. The place was immaculately clean and the large windows provided an incredible view of the city. The beds were incredibly comfortable, and we loved the light breeze we felt as we let the air in from the wrap around balcony. The rest of our first stay was spent in bliss, watching the seaplanes land at the harbor, while sipping coffee from the terrace. We have been raving to everyone. The stay felt magical!

We loved our stay in Victoria! Rented bikes, rode the Lochside Trail, grabbed lunch to go at the Red Barn Market on the way and ate at Cordova Bay. Another day we drove to Sooke and rented kayaks from Westwater Kayaks, spent a lovely few hours, after having lunch at Delicious Shirleys (amazing place, pastries to die for). Last day we walked around Victoria, ended with a few drinks on the terrace at the Empress, ordered a few snacks which we very tasty. Had one meal at 10 Acres, great. Another at Aura, which was also great. Enjoyed our G&Ts on the balcony, wonderful views. Dani was great at giving us tips and telling us how everything worked.

The location could not have been better, we were able to walk for groceries and to the waterfront with ease. The road to Butchart Gardens is right behind the building. The secure parking is also a plus. We didnt do any cooking while on vacation but if we had everything was available. View of the harbour and city is fabulous. We would return in a heart beat!

This condo was convenient to everything we wanted to do in Victoria. We also enjoyed watching the sunsets all week long with such a front row seat to see all the sights of Victoria. Things we enjoyed while here were bike riding the Galloping Goose trail from Coastal Cycle to Glen Lake as well as enjoying a day at Gonzales Beach Park. In addition enjoyed our walk on the Breakwater, running the Galloping Goose trail from the condo across the Johnson St Bridge, eating in Chinatown, going to the Bug Zoo, visiting the Butterfly Gardens and seeing the running of the goats at the Beacon Hill Park Childrens Farm.

We had a really lovely time in Victoria and have particularly enjoyed this fabulous apartment. It was marvellous to sit on the balcony in the sunshine, admiring the view. We have been so comfortable here. The Butchart Gardens are not to be missed. And weve never been in such a fantastic supermarket as Whole Foods-nothing quite like it in the UK. We highly recommend Red Fish Blue Fish for a fish and chip supper.

I cant imagine a better place to stay in Victoria! This 2 bedroom condo is set up perfectly to afford privacy with its split bedroom plan. It is beautifully and tastefully decorated with recliners in the living space positioned for the spectacular view over the wrap around balcony. Dani met us on arrival and filled us in on all the details of the condo as well as recommendations for what to do and where to eat. We were there for Canada Day 150 which was a huge fun celebration. Our balcony was the perfect place to view the spectacular fireworks display. Victoria is just so much fun and a walkable city to explore. Thank you for the opportunity to stay in this wonderful condo in a delightful city!
