Heart’s Delight Suite at the Mermaid Wharf
Comfort and Convenience come with a Great View
Heart’s Delight Suite is our home away from home, and in many ways it’s better than home – literally our heart’s delight. Luxuriously furnished, our 750 square foot open concept studio suite is a waterfront apartment with high ceilings and large windows that let the day’s full light in. Facing the Upper Harbour Marina, Heart’s Delight Suite is ideally situated in Victoria’s downtown and close to many of the major tourist attractions. Our quiet sanctuary is perfect for a business trip, a romantic getaway or a family vacation with room for four.
Heart’s Delight Suite is a few minutes’ walking distance from Chinatown, live theatre, cinemas, shopping, supermarkets, business and government buildings. Dozens of fabulous restaurants, cafes and pubs are located in the neighbourhood – the only problem you face is choosing which one to pick to please you palate.
As you walk out the front door, you can turn right to find yourself at the foot of Chinatown and the rest of downtown Victoria or turn left to the marina. The harbour ferry stops right at the door to take you further down the Gorge Waterway or toward the Inner Harbour. Heart’s Delight Suite is steps away from the Galloping Goose Trail, museums, historic sites, whale watching tours, float planes, day spas, yoga centres and all the sites that make Victoria the attraction it is. If you are coming to Victoria for work you will find that business, municipal and provincial government offices are so close that you may never need to drive or hail a cab. Efficient public transit will take you directly to the University of Victoria.
After you have visited the city you can choose to make a gourmet meal in our beautiful kitchen, pick from a wide selection of movies to watch on a 40 inch high definition screen, curl up in front of the fireplace to read a good book, light the candles and relax in the deep soaker tub, or just sit with a glass of wine and watch the ever changing spectacle on the water from the comfort of the living room or the balcony. Heart’s Delight Suite has everything you need to do all of these and more.
Our apartment was conceived as a home, not a temporary foothold. You will be in full comfort with a King size Sealy Perfect Sleeper in the “Snug” and an American Leather Comfort springless sleeper sofa with a high density foam mattress. Furnishings include high quality leather and solid wood furniture along with a selection of East-meets-West Canadian art. The kitchen is fully appointed with just about everything you might need or you can enjoy a BBQ on the rooftop common with a 360° view of Victoria. We have a workstation with broadband wireless internet access where you can set up your laptop, along with a laser printer for your convenience. All the basic needs for apartment life are supplied: cleaning supplies and detergents, garbage bags, soap, shampoo, along with kitchen essentials, as well as Yoga mats, umbrellas, and an insulated picnic backpack.
Heart’s Delight Suite is located at the Mermaid Wharf, a beautiful modern concrete and steel building that allows Heart’s Delight to be free of the noise from other units, and secure underground parking.

In our travels, we found that staying in a space that “feels like home” is essential to making a trip successful, and that having good access to the conveniences your seek while away from home allows people to relax easily. That knowledge served as our key motivation when looking for an apartment in Victoria, one where we could take advantage of easy access to the benefits of the city center while being in a quiet and serene location. It was important for us choose a location that would provide our guests with an environment in which they can feel settled the moment they pass the threshold.
Heather-Ann Scott /Pierre Pepin purchased this condo in 2009
Victoria provides a sense of the city while having easy access to rural areas. It is one of our preferred vacation sites, a place where we know we can feel settle in our home away from home.
Being in the hearth of Downtown Victoria was essential to us. It is easy to get around and from the waterfront location, we can access all the activities that are important to our stay.
This lovely condo is warm and welcoming with everything anyone can need to make a "nest." The new bath and kitchen with granite counters and stainless steel, came equipped with everything we needed , including all the basic staples. The furnishings were comfortable, and the view of rowers in the upper harbor was simply mesmerizing. The apartment was not only clean, but everything worked effortlessly. It was very apparent that the owners have equipped the condo with much care and thought. A great location for anyone staying in Victoria. We lived on salmon and halibut (purchased fresh in the fish store at fishermen's wharf --a pleasant trip via the water taxi from the dock outside the condo). Breakfast at the Sour Pickle, produce and lunch in Chinatown and the Market at Yates Street were all great suggestions from the owners. The condo was a block from Chinatown and an easy ten minute walk to the Inner Harbor. These owners have created a place that is special to them and not just an investment. My only regret in writing this review is that the condo might not be available if we want to rent it again.
My family (2 adults and 1 child) had the pleasure of staying in Heart's Delight Suite for 4 nights. The location is on the Waterfront and right in front of Chinatown. The walk to the main area of the harbor is only around 10 minutes as well as a watertaxi stop right in front of the building. The condo itself is exceptional. The condo's decor is just lovely and compliments the outdoor views beautifully. It appears that every inch of the condo was well thought out and planned. The owner has stocked the kitchen, bathroom and supply area with almost anything you may need. I especially felt the folded wheeled cart for shopping by the front door is a lovely touch to have for grocery shopping. The cleanliness of the apartment was just wonderful. I have stayed in many vacation rentals and so far the effort the owner makes to make this condo comfortable is the best I've encountered. Things to consider though with this condo: It is a one bedroom but the bedroom door is a curtain and the walls aren't completely closed. This may be an issue if someone has a baby or is a light sleeper. We didn't have an issue but I can see how this could be difficult for some.There are a few breakable decor items around the apartment. My daughter is a very calm 6 yr. old who spends her time coloring or reading. I was not nervous about anything getting broken or ruined but with multiple children or very active children you may want to move a few things to higher areas. The owner was very accessible for any questions and always got back to me in a timely manner.
My two daughters and I just got back from a week in Victoria. We feel so very fortunate to have found this place to stay! It made our trip even more special. The conco is beautifully decorated and in the perfect location with a fantastic view. We were able to walk our the front and rent kayaks or catch a water taxi. The Canoe Brew Pup is right there for good food and fun happy hour. We were abble to leave the car parked for most of the time and could walk into town to shop and sightsee. Heather (owner) is a delight to work with and organized beyond words. The condo is equipped with everything you could possibly need and then some. We appreciated having spices to use on the fresh from the boat salmon we bought. She has such an extensive DVD collection that was an extra bonus. There is plenty on Victoria to keep you buys and, of course, Heather has lots of I for on all there is to see, do and eat! We did zip lining, high tea at the Empress, wine tasting, hiking around Sooke (beautiful!) and even went over to Salt Springs island for their fantastic Saturday market. Great vacation and I would highly recommend this condo to everyone! Thank you for sharing your place with us Heather!
We really enjoyed staying in this beautiful apartment. We loved the waterfront view from the balcony. The location was perfect. The apartment is very well-stocked with every amenity you can think of including a LaserJet printer, which really came in handy. And, the owner was a pleasure to deal with in booking this vacation rental. It all made for a very pleasant stay in Victoria. I wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again.
the place had it all. If I had any complaint it would be that bedroom is very tiny and we felt we were sleeping in a boat...but that become fun after we settled in. Other than that had a great view, walking distance to everything. My wife is very fussy when it comes to cleanliness and the condo passed the test with flying colors. We would come back in a Heart beat to Heart's Delight Suite
There is nothing bad to say about this place or the owner. Perfect down to every detail! Great location to walk to the city areas. We would like to go back and spend more time. We were there only two days. First class!! Can't imagine staying in a small hotel room when you can stay here. Owner is very professional in every way.
