Why Property Manager chose Downtown
This condo blends the old and the new with elegance. Heritage exposed brick, original stained glass facade, 13' ceilings and 700 square feet of floor space - it is a truly unique space and nothing compares to it in Victoria. Thats why it is A Jewel that we can all share.
What makes this Apartment unique
The location is truly unbeatable. Close to the Inner Harbour, the Gorge Inlet, the positioning makes it suitable for both those that like to take things a little slower or those that are more adventurous at heart. Go kayaking, or Stand Up Paddle Boarding with rental available from Ocean River at the ned of the street and explore the inner harbour from the water. Paddle under the Blue Bridge and dodge Sea Planes taxing in and out of Canada's second busiest water airport. Paddle over to Fishermans Wharf and enjoy some ice-cream, watch the seals and tour the inner harbour back. For this land lubber types, you can also stroll through the inner harbour, sit and watch the float planes come in and out, stroll along Laurel Point along the harbour and end up at Fishermans Wharf on foot. Feel like Whale watching or taking a tour on a pickle boat of all the fantastic harbour side pubs? Why not try High Tea at the Empress Hotel or stroll around the Legislature Gardens? You can walk to all of this and more from the Jewel.

Beautiful apartment, great food in the area!
We loved staying here - the apartment is stunning and perfectly laid out. The area is full of great restaurants and bars as well as close to all sights in Victoria. We had an issue with the cleaning of the apartment (it was a little grubby upon arrival) but the manager came round himself to tidy it up for us. Would stay again!
Our 31st Wedding Anniversary
Hotels no more I say ! , not when you can find eclectic places to stay like the "JEWEL " ! Our contact John was terrific , meeting us out on Fisgard Street ,to walk us in to our place and give us our door codes etc.
The decor was so fun , touches of red everywhere , even a record player but alas no records !
Only glitch was no WIFI , we had done alot of searching online for Victoria things , but couldn't access but managed using our phones. We will most definately be back
Unique and Comfortable
Stayed 4 days at this comfortable, fun and a little funky apartment. Very well supplied and in a perfect location for discovering Victoria proper. Although it sounds impossible, it's actually even nicer then the pictures!
Lovely condo in Chinatown
My husband and I really enjoyed our weekend - great location and the condo is so beautiful!
I really like Chinatown and it felt like a special get-away to be completely immersed in it, from the stunning condo decor, to easy convenient access to the best food in town (in my opinion). I loved seeing the red lanterns from Chinatown lighting the inside of the condo at night. For a downtown location, it was quiet too!
Access to the condo was easy and I loved the inner alleyway of the complex.
Bed is very comfortable.
The appliances are upscale.
We appreciated having laundry.
Paula was a super-host and answered questions and provided information as needed.
We would love to stay here again!
Beautiful well appointed bnb. Great location, good service.
We enjoyed our stay in The Jewel. Comfortable bed, modern appliances and well suited for a longer stay. No problem checking in and in the heart of Chinatown so good walking distances to major attractions. Minor problem with internet was addressed promptly by Paula. Double set of stairs may pose challenge for those with mobility problems. All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Suggest that a TV schedule be provided for out of towners.
