About the property

Enjoy Sunrises From The East And Olympic Mountain Grandeur To The South

Relax and restore, in this beautifully decorated one and one half bedroom corner suite, with views to Olympic Mountains.

West Coastal influenced, you will find a superb combination of comfort with contemporary touches. Stunning design elements such as the driftwood inspired floor lamp and coffee table base, the unique barn board bistro dining table that seats 4, and beautiful accessories inspired by Victoria’s ocean setting. Watch the magical colours of the sky change as the sun sets while relaxing in the leisure recliners. We dare you to stay awake. Cozy up on the comfy sofa, watch tv, enjoy a good book, or daydream the day away.

Form follows function and no details have been overlooked in the bedroom, from the comfortable queen sized bed, wrapped in exquisite linens, lots of storage, and a plush carpet to land your feet in the morning. A Murphy bed, complete with linens, and a work space with high speed internet can be separated from the bedroom with a portable shoji screen. The “reading room”

or bathroom has a soaker tub, with two shower heads. Start your day enjoying coffee on the deck and watching the sunrise in the East.

You’ll enjoy cooking in this well stocked kitchen complete with stainless steel appliances including microwave, glass topped stove, fridge and dishwasher. But if cooking isn’t your forte, then………

Victoria has an extraordinary variety of cuisine, elegant fine dining, waterfront pubs, casual bistros and killer cocktail lounges, all located just steps from the Inner Harbour. Using the freshest local ingredients that reflect the West Coast, a number of restaurants, public markets, and food festivals have put Victoria on the culinary map. We would be remiss if we didn't tell you that we also have some amazing food trucks.

The prestigious Astoria is in the perfect location, it’s walking distance to Victoria’s gorgeous Inner Harbour, the Royal BC Museum and The Empress Hotel and Victoria’s own Fisherman’s Wharf, a charming community of houseboats, where you can eat seafood on the dock and watch the seals feed. You won’t want to miss Beacon Hill Park, 200 acres of landscape, with bridges, lakes, ponds and waterfalls. While at the park, stop at the Beacon Hill Drive Inn, a landmark in Victoria for over 50 years, famous for it’s soft service ice cream.

Boasting the mildest climate in Canada, Victoria is green and beautiful all year round.

Vancouver Island, where Victoria is located, is rated the Top Island in the continental USA

and Canada, and one of the Top Ten Islands in the World by Travel/Leisure World magazine.

Important Notes:

As we are a Canadian company we deal in Canadian currency. VRBO defaults to US dollars. To see the Canadian equivalent please click View Details and then Continue Booking, on the right hand side of your screen.

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 check beforehand for bike storage options. 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.

About Liz

We are Liz and Bruce of Victoria Prime Personal Property Management and we manage this property on behalf of the owners. You can learn all about us and even more about this property on our website.

Liz purchased this condo in 2105

Why Liz chose Downtown

There are only a certain number of properties with all of the features this one has. The quality and reputation of the Astoria building itself is the first reason, and the location is second. There are some views of water and mountains that add to the appeal. Shall I go on?

Guestbook comments from the owner

Always a pleasure staying here in Victoria. We come here once a year and this is our second time staying at the Astoria. We love renting apartments vs hotels...the service, the location, the amenities and the price always make it the best choice. Victoria Prime and Yvonne are so professional yet down to earth-AWESOME EXPERIENCE! We love Victoria and the entire island. See you next year.

Great Stay

  • 4 of 5

The condo that we stayed at was very clean and stock with some common accessories that did come in handy. Everything we needed was here for us and the location could not have been better. We felt welcomed and would definitely recommend this location to family and friends.

The only negative point about the location was the loud traffic in the early morning hours. We had to close the windows until the morning traffic dwindled.

The guest whose credit card is on file alone is liable for all payments and damages on a reservation and is fully responsible for the full reservation rent and charges.

Cancellations or changes that result in a shortened stay, that are made within 60 days of the arrival date, forfeit the full payment. Cancellation or early departure does not warrant any refund of rent, deposit or cleaning fee. However, if we are able to re-rent the property for the dates cancelled, we will be happy to refund all or any part of that.
