Shera and Chidakash are in love with people and with travelling. They live in the Gulf Islands near Victoria and have dedicated their lives to helping people make the changes they want in their lives and this work has culminated in a seaside retreat called Serenity by the Sea Retreat, on Galiano Island. To support guests seeking to make creative choices, Shera joins her skills as an artist, therapist and healer with the extraordinary energies of Serenity by the Sea, its waterfront and gardens. Chidakash has innate counseling skills and has created a unique style of bodywork called Expansive Body Integration. Together they offer transformational journeys in which personal transformation is an objective of the travel. This is why they are delighted that Victoria Serenity Vacation Rental and Mermaid Wharf are so close to many ways in which people can make discoveries and explore their interests and creativity.
Chidakash purchased this condo in 2008
Why Chidakash chose Victoria
Beyond a doubt it is the location that made buying Victoria Serenity Vacation Rental at Mermaid Wharf irresistible to us. We are at retirement age and here we will have all the pleasures of being in the centre with non of the hassles of traffic and parking!
What makes this condo unique
We had been unsure about what living in the city would be like, but finding Mermaid Wharf changed all that!! It offers everything we want. As active outdoor people we loved its immediate access to the water for our kayaks, and it is only across the bridge from the Galloping Goose Bicycle Trail. Shera, an artist, is delighted that she will be a few minutes’ walk from all kinds of galleries, and as lover of theatre and live music we are only a couple of blocks from the Macpherson playhouse. We love walking along the Inner Harbor side because it is so alive with, boats, buskers and people having a good time. And exploring the heritage lanes and buildings around Chinatown and Bastion Square is a treat for both of us. And when we want to hang out at home, we hear no traffic noise, or noise from neighboring condos. We enjoy the fresh openness of the rooftop patio and watching the harbor activities.
Guestbook comments from the owner
I so enjoyed our stay in your 217 at Mermaid. The weather was very cooperative for our stay, and we only had one day of wind, and we spent that afternon at the BC Museum.
We had so much fun being able to walk to just about everything, with exception of Buchart, and then it was nice to have our car.
I have already recommended your condo to others, and hope those that know will call to book with you.
Susan was very helpful in getting us in and arranged.
Thank you again for providing to others this fantastic space to use when in Victoria.
