Modern, comfortable suite in the heart of China town. Rich in history and character –the Union building is steps away from the beautiful Inner Harbour. Great restaurants, quaint coffee spots and shopping abound. Hop on a Harbour ferry and explore the waterway. If you want to eat in, the full kitchen has stainless steel appliances and cooking necessities to enjoy meals in. Sit out on the small balcony and enjoy the fresh air, views over Old Town and the Sooke Hills.

The space

While the area is vibrant, you can also retreat to the balcony for some relaxation and enjoy the fresh air, views over Old Town and the Sooke Hills. If you want to eat in, the full kitchen has stainless steel appliances and cooking necessities to enjoy meals in.

We have furnished our space with a comfortable Queen size lazy boy sleep sofa so our suite can accommodate up to 4 guests. The main bedroom boasts a Simmons Beautyrest Queen bed (the makers of the Heavenly bed) to support a great night's rest. The suite has a stackable washer and dryer, dishwasher and a dedicated parking space. We have dedicated wifi and cable television and music channels.

Very clean! Kim's instructions are very detailed and clear. I stayed there for work, and the unit and surrounding area had everything that I needed.

Kim was a lovely host! Fresh flowers and chocolates were a really nice surprise gift. She was very accommodating of our requests and very quick to respond. The condo is really nice and is in a wonderful location.

Kim's apartment is really nice, it is very well equipped, newly furnished and provides everything you need. Also the location is very good, you can walk everywhere around Victoria. Just be aware that the apartment is not optimal for more than two people as the door to the bedroom is only a sliding door so you don't have much privacy. Still we would definitely come back and stay at Kim's place again.

Thanks for staying with us Babsi. I'd be happy to have you again. I will add the descriptor of the master doors to my listing. Kind regards, Kim

Good: Fantastically central. Bad: The view is horrible - it looks over an old roof covered in seagulls and their droppings. The access to the place is not terribly easy to navigate. We never got an access code sent to us and when I scanned her welcome email again (which was really really long) it was nowhere to be found. She was available quickly however and made sure we were taken care of. It's not terribly kid friendly in the summer (bamboo stand is high enough to the balcony that a kid could climb up and fall off the balcony...) It's tiny. 4 people is a far stretch on a pull out bed. She asked us to cover an extra hour of cleaning because her bed was out place... what? We co-sleep so we had to move the bed to one side of the room so our little one doesn't fall out. She could at least ask what was out of place to us first rather than asking for money.

Response from Kim:
I am sorry that you didn't get the access code from Key Cafe as it was set-up. Glad there was no delay for you as I was available on my cell phone and able to resend it. Other guests have found the welcome information and details clear and helpful. Thank you for the feedback on the bamboo planter -I will be sure to alert other travellers with toddlers. As you know, the state you left our condo in was more much worse then the master bed and nightstands moved. I had asked you that cover the extra hour of cleaning that was required to restore it to the way you found it. Sincerely. Kim

The place looks new and clean. Location is great. Within walking distance to recommended places to eat. On Sunday we can hear the violinist playing on the street, the seguls flying above, the horse carriage going by and other tours being guided through Chinatown. I thought it was great to be in the city but be in the comfort of a home. The view was great. No other building facing us. Kim was great to communicate with. Def recommend this place. The dyson fans were great for cooling down the place.

Hello,
My name is Kim. My husband and I purchased this property as we love to travel and support Victoria tourism. We are both local business owners and are excited to have developed a comfortable place for people to enjoy. We live in the Victoria area and I am an active mother of 3.

I love the Union building as it is a perfect blend of modern comfort within an area rich in history. Old Town is vibrant and close to everything yet the building interior is quiet, offers privacy and makes it easy to catch some relaxation.
