This space is a brand new studio apartment (completed December 2016!) in a waterfront heritage building right in the heart of downtown Victoria. When staying here you are within walking distance of everything you need to have a superb experience in Victoria - breweries, pubs, restaurants, shopping, Chinatown, old town Vic, tourist attractions, water sports including kayaking and SUP.

The space

This studio apartment is located on the second floor of the heritage Janion building. You have a view of the water from the Juliet sliding doors, where you can catch beautiful sunsets in the evening! The queen size wall bed ensures that you get the most out of the small space. The bed converts to a table when not in use. We know you'll have a great time all around Victoria, but we also want you to have a great time while staying in our apartment, so we have included some fun extras:
* Record player and our personal favourite records
* Board games
* Books (including colouring books!)
* Growlers that you can fill up at local breweries
* DVD player and huge selection of DVDs

We want to make sure that you have everything you need to enjoy a comfortable stay, and also cook your own meals if you feel so inclined. Things you will find in the apartment are:
* Speedy WIFI
* Front-load washer & dryer
* Iron & ironing board
* TV with Optik cable
* Full refrigerator & freezer
* Dishwasher
* Oven & flat-top stove
* Toaster
* Kettle & french press

* Robes
* Baseboard heater
* Umbrella (hopefully you don't need it, but we've got your back if it rains!)

Guest access

* HUGE common area rooftop patio with panoramic views of downtown, the water, and the legislative buildings; this is a great place to watch the sunrise/sunset while sipping a glass of wine - BBQ is yours to use as well! - this area is free for you to use except the odd time when it is booked for a private event
* Indoor common area just inside the rooftop patio with tables, chairs, and a kitchen - this area is free for you to use except the odd time when it is booked for a private event

Interaction with guests

We are always available to answer any questions you have or give suggestions/recommendations on what to do around Victoria (we love this city, and would be so happy to give you the inside scoop on what to do around here - both within walking distance to the apartment or some trail/mountain adventures just out of the city - we are trail runners so we know exactly where to go!). We don't live in the building, but are very close by if you need us!

Other things to note

If you have any questions about the space, the building, or anything else that may not be mentioned above, don't hesitate to contact us! We can also provide many recommendations of our favourite things to see/do around town and aid you in planning the perfect itinerary for your visit!

Our check-in/check-out times can be flexible depending on how booked up we are. Just ask if you'd prefer a time outside of the allotted time frames and we will do our best to accommodate!

Perfect place for a short stay in Vic. The place has everything you need and nothing you don’t.

My girlfriend and I stayed here and we thoroughly enjoyed it. By the best restaurants (Grace Sushi!), wonderful views from the airbnb and the roof, and close to everything you need/want to do. Cozy but not too small and the hosts provided everything we needed (and then some - they have a great taste in music judging by their record collection!) We really loved staying here.

I stayed at Modern Funk for 2 weeks, I would totally recommend staying here for your Victoria trip (best for solo or couples travelers). The location can’t be beat, was super convenient for walking, public transit, restaurants, etc. Heather and Chris were awesome hosts, and all communications prompt and friendly! The apartment had everything I needed, and was comfortable and cute.

Heather and Chris made sure I found the home and got in ok. The space is cozy and has all of what you might need for cooking, eating and sleeping. Nice and quiet for sleeping. The blinds are more for privacy than keeping light out, so you may want an eye mask if you like full darkness (especially after sunrise). The location is very central, with many great restaurants and shops nearby. There is a partial view of the water... mainly you see the parking lot beside the building.

Thank you Heather and Chris for letting us stay at this prime spot. Great location, very clean and has all the amenities you need. Love how close it is to the ocean! The LP is an added bonus and enjoyed some Michael Jackson. Recommend this spot to those wanting to explore downtown Victoria.
