Description

This is one of downtown Victoria`s best condos in one of Victoria`s Inner Harbour`s best buildings. The Astoria gets high praise from both owners and renters as a wonderful place to call home (even if for just a few nights).

It is but a stone`s throw to Victoria’s bustling Inner Harbour. Easy walking to the Empress Hotel, Royal BC Museum, Parliament Buildings, harbour ferries & seaplane services, specialty shops, theatres, symphony, Fisherman`s Wharf, Victoria`s Bug Zoo, Beacon Hill Park (our favorite) and so much more. Downtown Victoria provides a huge number of wonderful cafes, bistros, pubs and restaurants.

Being a southwest corner unit, you will enjoy views of historic Parliament Buildings, cruise ships coming & going, Juan de Fuca Strait & the snowy peaks of the Olympic Mountains and beyond. All of this from inside the condo looking through the expansive windows and also from the two balconies.

Inside, you will find the living areas and kitchen done in bamboo flooring and the bedrooms carpeted. The fully equipped kitchen has stainless steel appliances and many extras to ensure you have all that you need to create your next culinary masterpiece.
To save you time and money, the following amenities are provided: paper products (including paper towels and toilet paper), bags for waste, plastic wrap and foil, hand soaps, shampoo, dish and laundry soap, salt and pepper, sugar and oil too.

The living room has a large flat screen HDTV with an excellent cable package and a music library for your enjoyment. Oh, and for an extra great feature, if you are a Netflix addict like I am, the DVD player here will let you access your own Netflix account and watch away!

We know that most people travel with their own music playing device, so we have equipped this condo with a player so you can do just that. Comfortable furniture and a spacious feel draw you in to relax and enjoy the views. You've just got to sit in the big round spinning chair placed right in the window. It is amazing!

The master bedroom has a King Size bed, and a shower tub combination in the full ensuite bathroom. Windows in the master look to and through one balcony for `to die for` views.

The second bedroom has a Queen size bed, a nice desk and (once again) wonderful views.
The second full bathroom has a stall shower, perfect for anyone with mobility challenges.

The Astoria building has an amenities/lounge on the first floor with a billiards table and is great for a meeting place. The fitness room is adjacent to the amenities room for your workouts.

Secure underground parking comes with your rental with us as does high speed wi-fi and local phone.

We look forward to greeting you on your arrival and will be on hand to provide the highest quality of service throughout your stay. We love what we do, and a big part of that is ensuring that you have the best “home away from home” experience ever. Everything that you need has been thought of; you need only bring your suitcase.

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.  If you are bringing a bicycle, please be aware that it is your responsibility to check to see if the unit you want to rent has a place to store it.

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.

My wife and I had a great trip to Victoria and it was all thanks to this place. The condo is amazing. The view is the first thing you see when entering, and continues through the entire condo. There is a view in every room. The place was very clean and well maintained. We loved that we walked every where, and never moved the car except for zip lining in Sooke. Sharon was a great liason and went well beyond what was required. She pointed us the direction of what to do and where to eat. And even responded to a question about where to go late in the evening. Every place she recommended was spot on! I am looking forward to returning in the future. I recommend this place to anyone looking for a great Victoria experience.

A comfortable, well located and beautiful condo. Our family enjoyed the short but sweet stay. We could walk to all the nice places, the Museum, Parliament Bldgs, Inner Harbour, Beacon Hill Park and all the nice places to eat. Canada Day celebration was the jewel in the crown, with all the people, music and fireworks. Our boys enjoyed the day. Thanks to Sharon for her advice and helping us with the extended check out time. And the views of the snow capped mountains in the daytime and the lighted Parliament bldgs were simply spectacular. We plan to be back again.

Great condo with a perfect location. Enjoyed the balcony a lot as weather was fantastic most of the month. Loved the view of the Olympic Peninsula Mountains, the city especially at night and the legislative buildings. The condo was well stocked with kitchen necessities. All in all we truly enjoyed our stay. Liz and Sharon at Victoria Prime are so nice to deal with. This place is a keeper-would love to come back again.

Our family (2 adults + 2 littlies) had a wonderful & memorable time staying in Astoria Vista over Christmas. We booked several months in advance, and Liz & Maureen were in constant communication with us, which was very helpful & informative. Once we arrived Sharon's warm & cheerful welcome in the front lobby was amazing (especially after 24hours of travel with 2 kids under 2). She also had the best tips for food & sights in the area. As a Victoria ex-pat, I know this is the best spot for anything & everything. Steps from the inner harbour, Beacon Hill & Cook St, really doesn't get much better! And the views are amazing to wake up to. Our 2 yr old would sneak into the lounge room, sit on the circle chair & watch all the "beautiful lights"! The apartment had everything we needed to settle in straight away for our month long stay. It was warm and friendly. And having an underground parking spot in the middle of winter was extremely handy! The beds were comfortable, the bathrooms & kit

This city is absolutely beautiful! Our family especially enjoyed walking through Beacon Hill Park, bike riding, hiking to the top of Mount Aerosmith, white water rafting down the Thompson River (in Lytton) and ziplining in Sooke. The weather here is perfect compared to all the heat we get in Texas! Thanks for the wonderful condo. It worked as a perfect base camp for all the activities we were doing during our stay. This condo has awesome views of the Parliament Buildings. Hope we can visit sometime in the future.

Fabulous view, fun times and great friends. Butchart Gardens was incredible. We went in the day and enjoyed it with many others. We returned in the evening for the concert on the grass and it was lovely and so peaceful - almost like we were there on our own. We went to Swann's Brew Pub - the guys liked their beer. Canoe's is a lovely setting and the food is tasty. We walked all over - through the park, L. Governor's home - lovely gardens, and to the Moss Street Market in Cook Street Village. It all has a warm friendly vibe. Bubby's has a yummy breakfast! Have fun! So much to do! Can't wait to come again!
