Victoria, British Columbia is located on Vancouver Island and can be accessed via ferry. Colonial influence has left the beautiful city with intricate architecture, which is enhanced by the natural beauty of the land. Predominantly, the city is known for its flowers and the celebrations surrounding them, but downtown houses an abundance of eateries, shops and major sites to see, including Chinatown. Many of our selected Airbnbs sit conveniently within the walkable perimeters, but you can always hop on a horse-drawn carriage just for fun!

Best Waterfront Downtown Location in Victoria
Presenting simply, there’s an upscale touch to this Victoria condominium.
