Minutes from downtown and the harbour, Camosun College and the University of Victoria and Hillside Shopping Centre. One of the most centrally located properties in the city, the 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom fully equipped apartment has been fully updated in August 2013. MOST EVERYTHING IS BRAND NEW! The interior has been fully painted, the carpets replaced and cork floor offers warm and inviting comfort in the kitchen and bath area. The apartment is located on the top floor of the mansion (24 stairs up so may not be suitable for elderly guests or young children). The suite contains two bedrooms, one with a queen bed, and the second with a king bed. Top quality linens of 600 thread count and higher offer luxury during your sleep. Down pillows and comforters complete your restful evening. The home offers a wonderful living room area with a 42' flat screen HD Smart TV, a Bluray DVD player. A comfortable 6 seater sectional welcomes you to settle in and enjoy your favourite TV show, movie or novel. Over 12 pieces of stunning original global art adorn the walls. From the moment you enter this one of a kind home, you will feel the warm inviting colours and have a sense you have entered a fine art gallery. This very private 1/2 acre of land is located near Camosun College, UVIC and Hillside Shopping Centre in central Victoria. Very quiet noise free residential street. It is a 3-minute walk to multi-frequency bus transport to every part of the city including UVIC. The suite also offers its own patio for relaxation, reading or dining outside on the table. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you will need to prepare your own meals or snacks. There is even a WOK and microwave oven. Without question, this apartment offers one of the most private and tranquil locations in all of Victoria, and with the recent updates, make it seem as if the building is brand new. Be in the city, yet in the old growth forests of this magnificent neighborhood. More

About the neighbourhood
Located in central Victoria with immediate access to transit, yet in a very quiet area on Mount Tolmie. The local is second to none, with access to downtown and the harbour area in 10 mins or less, Camosun College, Hillside Shopping Mall, and the Royal Jubilee Hospital are all within minutes of this stunning rental. The University of Victoria is only 5 minutes away. Great shopping, small intimate dining establishments all dot this terrific inner city neighbourhood.
Getting around
I always recommend to my clients that they rent a car when visiting Victoria because they're so many areas to see outside of the central core that a car just makes traveling the area so much easier. However if renting a car is not in your plans the local Transit is literally a three-minute walk from the home. It's frequent because it's the university route so you rarely wait more than 5 or 6 minutes for a bus to take you downtown to the core in less than 10 minutes.
