Great safe location with free parking
We stayed here for 3 nights & loved the location & plenty of space for 2 people with secure underground dedicated free parking spot & secure building. Area is safe to walk around & explore, & views on rooftop were great.We took advantage of rooftop space one evening with a bottle of wine & some cheese. Condo space is great,& murphy bed is nice, it folds up out of the way during the day, which is easy to do. It was nice to have laundry facilities right in the unit & took advantage of that. Bathtub is deep & nice for a bath if desired. The chairs in the living area were comfy (reclining) & views of the water out the huge floor to ceiling sliding door was great. We did not have any noise from the restaurant below. Pros: Easy drive or walk to almost everything. We walked down into the inner harbor on 2 days/nights, had lunch & dinner at various places around the condo. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from between the condo & inner harbor, which is nice. There was free concert on Labor Day (day we arrived) when we walked to the inner harbor & that was a nice treat. Good grocery stores within 5 minutes of the unit, which we went to & cooked all our breakfasts each morning. We even got something for dinner at the grocery store & cooked in the unit one evening. Fisherman's wharf is a little far to walk, but one could take the water taxi there (we drove to it one day after out exploring area, & had no problem parking for free on the street instead of paying for parking int he wharf lot). It's quaint, floating homes & boats, mostly food spots and only 1 little shop, seal feeding, but nice little walk around there (not a half or full day stop, maybe 2 hours at most). Two gardens visited while there were a short drive from the unit (Abhazi Gardens & Government House Gardens, ), had lunch in Fairfield area & drove along seawall walkway back around to the wharf & inner harbor & back to condo, nice drive. We drove north on 1 to Kinsol Trestle which was fantastic, had lunch in Cowichan Bay, then over to Butchart Gardens in afternoon & stayed there till 9pm, with another short easy drive back to condo. Cons: There is only 1 glass corning bowl to use if you want to use the oven. It would've been nice to have another pan or oven dish as well. The magnetic key used in elevator is touchy & had to play with it every time. Thank you for your hospitality, Karen & Paul have a fantastic place!
