Chocolat Box

Guest Rating:

Vacation rental condominium. Sleeps 2, 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom. No pets allowed.

528 Pandora Ave Unit 216 Victoria, British Columbia V8W0C6 Canada

Starting from $150.00 CAD per night. If you love eclectic style and cosy comfort, the Chocolate Box is your dream destination. This stylish and beautiful one-bedroom apartment in Victoria's historic Chinatown is only steps from the downtown harbour and the best restaurants and shops the city has to offer. Filled with books and love, you'll adore this Victorian original. The apartment has the look and feel of a worldly nomad’s den, with maps and beautiful trinkets from around the globe. You’ll love sleeping in the cosy queen-sized bed, with its French cotton coverlet and soft bamboo sheets, and dining at a table overlooking the brick façade of Market Square. Stand outside on the Juliet balcony and watch the sun go down. Our rate Includes cleaning and administration fee


Imagine everything Victoria has to offer, right outside your front door. The great thing about this neighbourhood is that it's a lovely place to go for a walk, and there amazing places to eat and explore right here. Try Habit Coffee right downstairs for the best brew and French pastries in town. The place is also right next door to Fan Tan Alley, which is filled with wonderful treasures and some wonderful Chinese food places, such as the Fan Tan Cafe. A favourite place to get some organic local treats is Pure Lovin' Chocolates, right at the entrance to the Alley!

The Chocolate Box has all the amenities you’ll need to enjoy your stay, for as long as you want. This open-plan space is perfect for a single traveller or a couple looking to explore the city by foot. It's also a wonderful longer-term option for those looking to live in Victoria for a month or more, as it is a full apartment with a kitchen complete with a Keurig coffee maker, a washer and dryer, and a dishwasher. You’ll also have access to your own parking space. Come and stay a while. We know you’ll love it.

    a guest from 111, 111 recommends this vacation rental

    I recently stayed at this centrally located condo located on the border of Downtown Victoria BC & Chinatown. Think an eclectically decorated furnished apartment. It is professionally managed with questions quickly answered by a friendly & knowledgeable Strata Manager.

    That said, I feel introducing a FAQ to the Guest Information Booklet would benefit all parties as alot of my queries were of a minor nature. Suggested topics to cover include how to access optional services together with a map outlining the location of some not so intuitive amenities & directions to the nearest supermarket for example.

    Overall I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Chocolat Box & wouldn't hesitate to rebook or recommended to friends travelling to Victoria BC.

    Richard H from Melbourn, AU recommends this vacation rental

    Overall a great experience. Excellent location, easy walking distance to downtown Victoria. A couple of things seem to have missed maintenance: the power points behind the coffee pod machine seemed to be blocked off, the coffee machine itself did not work. We used the drip coffee device which was fine. Otherwise the whole experience was excellent.

    Everything within walking distance of this superb apartment. The art, books ornaments etc made the place very homely. Spaciousness of lounge/dining area fantastic. Very, very clean. Bed very comfortable though room itself a little cramped but as its only for sleeping, was not a problem. Would recommend the apartment to anyone. Thank you for such a find right at the end of my stay on Vancouver Island

    Donna B from St. Albert, AB recommends this vacation rental

    The apartment was just like the pictures and description...which was perfect! It was clean, quiet, safe, modern, comfortable, and ideal for a couple. The location on Pandora street makes it so easy to get around Victoria without using a car but if you have a car the parking is secure, well lit, clean and easy to use. The owner was very professional while being friendly and made us feel welcome - we didn't need anything on our stay but felt comfortable enough that we knew we could reach out if needed. The kitchen has all the essentials and the "leave one - take one" approach to dry goods is a great idea. I would stay here again and recommend to any couple. Staying here added to our trip to Victoria. Chinatown is one street over, Market Square is across the street and there are shops, restaurants, and pubs within minutes from your door but the nice thing is the streets are not crazy loud all the time and are actually quiet by midnight. We did not encounter any homeless people on our street at night or in the early morning. Two amazing places to eat are MoLe (steps from your door) and John's Place (a block away), actually there are too many great places to list them all! Just go - try it out - you won't regret it!

    We loved staying at The Chocolate Box in Victoria. The place was spotless, new and fresh, decorated with style and convenient to everything downtown. The building was easy to find, very secure and the entire experience was great from the first contact to our departure. We would recommend this place to our friends and would definitely stay here again.

    The condo was everything we could have ever asked for and more. The location was perfect if you are looking for a central, downtown spot. The building is new and nicely secured with key fob and touch code technology. The furnishings in the condo are eclectic and modern- they really appealed to our style. We enjoyed the games in the closet and especially the balcony- there is excellent people watching from that spot!! When we make our way back to Victoria- we will definitely book here. And not to forget, the manager who met us upon arrival and showed us around the premise and to our room was kind, sincere, helpful, and told us to reach him during our stay if we had any questions!!

    Valerie P from East Toronto (Studio District), ON recommends this vacation rental

    Was pleasantly surprised on arrival. The suite was exactly as pictured. Neat, homey, and convenient to everything that I needed. Walking to Beacon Hill Park was a breeze. The bus line to my brother's was around the corner; so too were the tea shops, coffee shops and groceries at Yates and Quadra. The Blue Fox for breakfast and The Drake for beer and ribs, (across the street). The entrance is off Theatre Alley which runs from Pandora St. to Fisgard St. The exit on Fisgard is right beside World Coffee, home of the best Pesto grilled cheese sandwich and carrot cake in Victoria. I'm a tea drinker, but I've heard the coffee is very good there as well. My last day in Victoria I could be found sitting outside enjoying the ambiance with tea and cake. I mustn't forget Pierre, the pleasant and ever so helpful concierge. Thanks Pierre for your welcome and your Au Revoir !
