, British Columbia
is located at the southern end of Vancouver
Island. Harris Green is its smallest neighbourhood encompassing only 12 city blocks. Harris Green accommodations are situated on the eastern edge of Victoria’s downtown area
. Having a vacation rental in this gateway to downtown gives easy access to Victoria’s main attractions
Harris Green is centred around a section of Victoria’s Yates
Street, a central downtown corridor, so condo rental visitors can easily walk or make a short stop on public transit to their destination. The Harris Green neighbourhood itself has all that you need to make your accommodation feel like home. There is a local grocery store, restaurants, cafes, and specialty shops.
Victoria is full of activities, and attractions for visitors with vacation rentals in the city. The Royal British Columbia Museum
is one of them. Located near Victoria’s Inner Harbour, it is a fabulous collection of natural and human history displays, and artifacts. After a visit there, put a bit of luxury into your day, and take tea at the nearby Empress Hotel
For something a bit different from your condo rental, take a walk from downtown to see the amazing Craigdarroch Castle
. This mansion built on a hill overlooking the city was built in the late 1800s for Robert Dunsmuir, the richest man in Western Canada
, who made his fortune in coal. The building is full of gorgeous stained glass, intricate woodwork, and an outstanding collection of Victorian-era furnishings
Holidays in Victoria would not be complete without a visit to Fisherman’s Wharf
. Visitors with Victoria condo rentals will delight in this fully functioning harbour. You can buy fresh fish from the fishing boats
arriving here each day. Take some back your lodging, and enjoy the taste of the sea. A variety of eco-tours are also offered from the Wharf
. These will take you out to sea to find the huge Orca whales, on a kayaking tour of the Inner Harbour.
For vacation rental visitors who enjoy a bit of shopping, Government Street is the place to go. Running through the downtown area of the Inner Harbour, it is the perfect place to find that souvenir to take back to your accommodation
. Condo rentals near downtown are also close to Canada’s oldest Chinatown, home to Fan Tan Alley, the narrowest street in the country.
A bit further from Harris Green accommodations is the spectacular Butchart Gardens
. It is open year round, and is considered as one of the world’s premier floral show gardens
. Each season has its own amazing burst of colour. It also offers fireworks displays, and concerts in the summer, and an outdoor skating pond in the winter
