Appliances include: Gas Cooktop, Stainless Steel Refrigerator, Convection Oven, Microwave & Dishwasher and In Suite Washer and Dryer.

The ensuite bathroom features double sinks with limestone vanity tops, backsplash, cast iron soaker tub, marble flooring, frameless glass shower surround and marble wall tile in the tub and shower. There is also a 2 piece powder room.

If your party has three people, or if the kids need separate sleeping areas, there is a full pull out couch in the living room.

Swimming pool & hot tub are processed through a water filter system, tested daily & conforms with the Health Act. The pool area is seasonal and has usage hours that vary season to season.

The location is nearby all of Victoria`s best attractions. Walk to Beacon Hill Park or take a stroll to the Inner Harbour and enjoy the street performers. The world renowned Royal British Columbia Museum and IMAX Theatre is two blocks away and right next to the legislature buildings of British Columbia. Take a whale watching tour, a scenic sailboat ride, a harbour ferry, or a fishing charter. Indulge in one of the Historic Walking Tours, some ghostly, some not; or perhaps a carriage ride. Take a bus tour to Butchart Gardens or visit The Victoria Bug Zoo. All of this is within a 5 minute walk from your front door and there is so much more to do within a 20 minute walking radius. You will be busy while you are here in order to experience all of the "must do" things Victoria has to offer.

Local public transportation is at your door step.  Getting here, or going back, the BC Ferries Connector bus service, providing service to The Gulf Islands, Vancouver and the Lower Mainland is just one block away. The Victoria Airport is 30 minutes away with convenient shuttle service (YYJ Shuttle) available, also just one block away. The Coho Ferry to Washington State leaves from the Inner Harbour. The float planes fly daily straight out of The Inner Harbour traveling to Seattle and Vancouver. The Victoria Clipper passenger-only-ferry sails into downtown Seattle and offers ground transport shuttles to other destinations in Seattle, such as the airport.

We like to inform our guests that being in the heart of it all, you should expect some city noises.  We sometimes have people who want to be in the middle of it all, yet want it to be countryside quiet.

Important Notes:

Bike storage can be a tricky issue.  Every building has a different bike storage policy and there are no guarantees that spots will be available.  Every building has a zero tolerance for bikes in the lobbies or elevators, fines will be issued for such.  Unfortunately this building has no availability in the bike room.
We recommend renting bikes while you are here, many of the bike rental companies will allow them to be stored there at the end of the day even if you rent them for a week.

If you have a large vehicle, please be sure and check the garage clearance for the building to make sure your vehicle will fit.

Please see NOTES for more specifics related to this property.

We have booked rentals through Victoria Prime at least 5 times, I think (could be 6 times, but can't remember for sure!), and I have only great things to say about Victoria Prime and its high-quality, professional service and attention to detail. The properties are beautifully maintained and excellent value, and the great concierges (thank you to Lawrence, Karen and Allison!)always make staying in Victoria a great experience.

We have stayed in Empress Views a couple of times, and it is a beautiful, well-furnished condo in a beautiful building. The small den (in addition to the living/dining area and the bedroom) makes the condo spacious and comfortable. The location is perfect - right downtown on Douglas Street and within easy walking/biking distance to everything we need for a holiday in Victoria. We really appreciate the air conditioning in this building (as we usually seem to be in Victoria during a heat wave).

This is our fourth time staying at 707 and we love it. Great weather (thank you Victoria!). Drove out to Sooke, enjoyed the walk along Whiffen Spit. Great meals at the surrounding restaurants. We'll be back.

The flat was well furnished to a high standard and well equipped. It was very clean on our arrival. The flat is located downtown and we were able to walk to all the restaurants and sights we wanted to visit. Much better than taking a room at the Empress!!

Only problem was that it was too short a stay! 707 is perfect for Cheryl and myself, second time we've had this condo and look forward to staying there many more times. What can we say about Lawrence, we truly look forward to seeing him and he just makes the arrival that much better. Thanks for a great stay!

We very much enjoyed our stay in Apt 707, 707 Courtney St, Falls Building. This apartment was well located, well appointed, well provided, clean and had a great sunset balcony. At times (on a long weekend Sunday night, with Blues Bash, Classic Boats event, Fringe Festival all on) it was a little noisy but the noise didnt worry us because we went to all those things! We have been to Victoria before so perhaps we didnt need the time spent on a personal Concierge check-in. However, everything went smoothly and everyone was where they needed to be at the set time which was good (unlike others we saw waiting) and contactable if things didnt go according to plan. So if we find ourselves in Victoria again we would certainly stay in that apartment which seemed to be much better than our friends. Thank you all for an efficient, well-organised stay. Thank you to the owners who thought about what future guests would want.

Ideally located to access all downtown Victoria has to offer. Really enjoyed the hop on hop off tour and the 5$ extra for the harbour tour is a bargain. The Royal British Museum was great and especially the scene during the solar eclipse. We went to the local movie theatre and enjoyed the comfy recliner seats and big bag of popcorn. The local pub scene was a lot of fun too. We had come off wilderness adventures so it was nice to have a way to do laundry and to chill in the pool with wine and nibbles only a short elevator ride away. Such a great city to be in the heart of things.

We visited Victoria from the San Francisco Bay area. We loved this condo because of the location and the comfort, plus we enjoyed the balcony. Very well equipped. Our four days here were exceptionally warm which was perfect for us. Lawrence was very helpful when we arrived and made our move into the condo very easy. Great recommendations from him! The artwork makes your place extra special. Thank you!

This little condo is an absolute gem in beautiful Victoria. It is LITERALLY 2 blocks up from the Empress and waterfront and STEPS to wonderful restaurants and shopping. We were able to walk EVERYWHERE and had so much fun exploring. On arrival we found the condo to be very clean and well decorated. The photos don't (can't) show the "comfort factor" and this has it...we felt instantly 'at home'. There is a little office available (in case someone needs to do a bit of work) a fabulous kitchen and warm/inviting living area with gas fireplace for cool evenings. The bed is very comfy and the bathroom really very nice as well. Condo also has a 2nd bathroom near the office which is nice to have. Walk in closet fit our two very large suitcases and we were able to hang up our clothing. Loved being able to do a load of laundry as well. Evenings we sat outside and had our glass of wine and chatted. A perfect end to each wonderful day. HIGHLY recommend this condo! We would and will book again.

Heather and I escaped. the Ontario winter for a month or so and enjoyed our stay in your lovely condo. The condo and the location were great. The weather was less delightful but that's not the condo's fault. Lawrence and Bruce from Victoria Prime were very helpful and attentive to our needs. Found the DVD player a bit problematic and would have a enjoyed a TV in the bedroom. All in all, we enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to return.

We had a lovely stay here The weather was cool, light rain, on most days, but three beautiful sunny days. We loved the condo, great comforts, comfortable and right in the heart of everything. Beautiful island and we enjoyed New Years Eve celebration and especially getting to Sooke Potholes, and Goldstream. We took a ferry ride to see Saturna, Mayne and Pender Islands, and spent a lot of time walking the beach that is straight up Douglas Street. We saw a Catherdral,a castle, floating homes and harbour seals. We drank way too much beer and you gotta go to Big Bad Johns just one half a block away in the Strathcona. We loved our excellent adventures 2016, and we'll come back to see Victoria and Vancouver Island when it's warm. We know exactly where to stay.
