You will be staying in a uniquely designed townhome in a perfect location in a magic city in one of the most beautiful area of the world. You be living in a custom designed suite at the front of one of the most admired houses in Victoria with a view that is arguably one of the best anywhere. I can forward a link to an article published several years ago about the house if you contact me directly (Tripkey prevents me from including it here). Your living space is compact yet designed for maximum enjoyment. Much of the furnishings are classic designs or beautifully rendered copies thereof. Your guests will admire your taste and you will enjoy the pleasure of seeing the sun rise each day over Ross Bay and then you can stroll downtown and enjoy one of the most livable cities in North America...You will be staying in a uniquely designed townhome in a perfect location in a magic city in one of the most beautiful area of the world.

The home to which you are attached is one of the most original designs anywhere with all steel construction, a stainless steel roof, floor to ceiling glass walls overlooking the ocean where whales, seals and sea life frolic and passing ships offer unending entertainment. Why would you not come and stay?More

I had seen this house on a previous trip to Victoria. I promised myself that I would return and experience this unique place. The entire experience exceeded my hopes. The structure alone is fascinating. Every detail is planned and executed in the most thoughtful way....More

We found the location was amazing - right across the street from Juan de Fuca Strait. The owners may us very welcome into their home. It was only about a ten minute or less to downtown Victoria where we spent most of our time sightseeing.

A well equipped ultra modern condo with an exceptional view of the ocean in a quiet location close to everything you need. With a manual to operate everything all is well.

About the neighbourhood
Victoria is a special place that has only just been discovered so is still fresh and friendly. Over 200 cruise ships stop every year and half a million passengers come to see where they could live or visit. Many do come back so it is growing and receiving new home owners from around the world. Like Carmel in California, the local residents are an interesting group and the local entertainment scene is very rich for a city of 300,000 since artistic and wealthy people can live anywhere. British Columbia is a special place due to its location and local geography. The Japanese Current brings warm ocean waters to the islands and Fiords that line the BC coast. This means that there are over a dozen high quality wineries within a 15 mile radius of the city and many more nearby on the main land...
