Overview

Victoria Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

This oceanfront, corner, unit with floor to ceiling windows along two walls looks into the harbour in downtown Victoria. If you would like a larger unit or if this unit is booked, we have another unit in the building. We also can accommodate some two day rentals

Sit on your private covered balcony and watch the boats in the inner and upper harbours during the day and the sunsets at night.

Walk to all downtown amenities. Take in whale watching, kayaking, water taxi and biking right outside your door on the wharf. BBQ or relax on the roof top patio.

Located in the heart of downtown Victoria in the Mermaid building. On the waterfront of the harbour and the edge of the Gorge waterway, the Mermaid Building allows its guests to experience downtown Victoria, the Inner Harbour, the Gorge Waterway, the ocean, the upper part of the island and Vancouver, with ease.

Some of Victoria’s most popular restaurants surround the building, making it easy to have gourmet meals with out the worry of taxis or drinking and driving.

Take a Whale watching tour right outside the door. Or rent a kayak and glide through the harbour to the open ocean to discover the Pacific’s wild life. Or paddle up the Gorge waterway and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Salmon Fish with a charter or rent a power boat and just take it easy touring Victoria from the water’s perspective.

Just steps away, the harbour sea planes take passengers in a half hour flight to downtown Vancouver, offering great shopping on Robson street, Theatres, Stanley Park and more, and all in a day allowing one to return home for dinner.

The Mermaid neighbours Historic China Town with its many vegetable stores, restaurants and curio shops.

Romantic horse drawn carriages carry passengers through the inner harbour past the parliament buildings, the world famous Royal BC Museum, live entertainment, Underwater Sea Gardens, Omnimax Theatre, Miniature World, Double Decker sight seeing tours, and tour buses to the renowned Butchart Gardens.

Cycle, stroll, run, or even ride a horse on the picturesque Galloping Goose Trail. This multi-use trail, formerly a railway line, moves right beside the Mermaid Building, through urban, rural and wilderness scenery on its 55-kilometre journey from Victoria to Sooke. Whether you're commuting to work, meandering on a weekend afternoon or pacing yourself from Sidney to Sooke, the trail is yours to enjoy.

Catch the little Harbour Ferry stopping at the Mermaid and travel right up the Gorge waterway to Tillicum and down to the Empress.

Nothing has been spared in furnishing this space. It is fully equipped with a 32 inch flat screen Smart TV, DVD player, high speed internet and modem, microwave, dishwasher, stove, fridge, toaster, coffee maker, washing machine and dryer. The kitchen is fully equipped.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have had such a great visit in your lovely city. Such a nice escape from the cold. We really enjoyed the magnificent sunsets. We found it so easy to walk everywhere. A real plus. Being right in the heart of the old town was lovely to enjoy the independent boutiques and restaurants. We would choose this part of the city again. The condo is so modern and beautifully equipped. Although the condo is not large, we did not feel cramped. Everything is full sized. We would like to recommend the condo to all. Please feel free to post this letter on your web site

Lovely Condo in the Perfect Location

  • of 5

Thank you Jeanie for providing a perfect home for our stay in Victoria. We have enjoyed VRBOs in many places and few tick all the boxes the way this unit did.

Wonderful Place in a great area

  • of 5

My husband and I have stayed here twice, and have loved it both times. It has wonderful views of the water, with all the rowing, paddling and other activity you could expect. Lots of great restaurants a short walk away. Jeanie is wonderful to deal with and overall I can't think of a better place to be!

Great place

  • 5 of 5

this was our first vrbo rental. We wanted to try a place we would know was 'safe'. This place was almost perfect. We really e joyed watching the boat activity outside the window.

When we had a small problem, Josie was there quickly. The only thing is, a step stool for the high cabinets would be useful. We had a car, but you could be here without one, if you were only visiting downtown Victoria. Better instructions for the TV would be useful.

All in all a great place to stay. The pictures tell the story

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

A magnificent condo with a magnificent view in a perfect location.

I'm not sure what more I can say! STAY HERE IF YOURE COMING TO VICTORIA.

The city of Victoria winds down early in the evening, so you'll be glad to have a beautiful place to call home each night. We liked Victoria a lot, but almost felt that merely staying in this condo was vacation enough. Great restaurants a short walk away. All of downtown Victoria is walkable from here.

The owner was wonderfully diligent and accommodating.

You needn't look any further for a beautiful home away from home in Victoria.
