Shera and Chidakash are in love with people and with travelling. This work has culminated in the building of a unique home and seaside retreat called Serenity by the Sea Retreat, on Galiano Island, in the Gulf Islands near Victoria. Shera is an artist and maintains a large studio gallery at home. She also has remarkable skills as a therapist and healer which are enhanced by the extraordinary energies of Serenity by the Sea, its waterfront and gardens. Chidakash manages the retreat and has created a unique style of bodywork called Expansive Body Integration. Together they offer transformational journeys to Peru and annual trips to Thailand to care for elephants hands-on. We are delighted that our Victoria Properties at Mermaid Wharf as a retreat to support people wanting to make their own discoveries and explore their interests and creativity.

Chidakash purchased this condo in 2010

When we walked into this condo we were blown away by the dramatic panoramic expanse of harbour view. It was a 'Wow!' factor that was irresistible. And we have already been delighted by the location of Mermaid Wharf and its proximity to so much in Victoria. 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!

This stunning penthouse property is a beautiful refuge for anyone who would like to rise above the turmoil and traffic of the city. Everything about it seems to be a celebration of the Harbour, and the ocean, the open sky. The patio garden on the rooftop adds a fabulous dimension to this waterfront experience. With a fridge and a barbeque and lots of seating, it is a delightful place to host family, friends, or colleagues

We stayed here for our anniversary (41 years) and we loved it. The corner suite allows for a great view of the harbour. It is fun to watch the action in inner harbor. Every day there was rowers of all kinds because the harbour is so calm. The tugs are always moving barges around. Many places are within walking distance such as Chinatown, the Empress Hotel, and plenty of shopping. The Canoe Brew Pub was next door and the food was very good. The weather was beautiful. The private roof top deck was very nice for an afternoon barbeque and to watch the sunset. The suite was very quite and well furnished. Everything was clean and neat. I felt very safe. Very suitable for 2, a little crowded for 4 but do-able.The harbour ferries dock here and you can take them anywhere on the harbours. It was a great experience.

We absolutely LOVED our week in Victoria and our wonderful condo Serenity by the Harbor. This was our first experience renting through VRBO and we can't say enough good things about it. Everything was just as described. We would definitely do a repeat of everything!!!

The location was perfect. We were able to walk to downtown and many of the attractions and restaurants. Watching the little Water Taxis go in and out and the kayakers and other water craft kept me entertained for long stretches of time.
The staples in the pantry and refrigerator were a bonus!
We were disappointed there was no coffee maker available on arrival except for the French press but Susan the on site "angel" went out and bought one. However, she supplied us with 2 filters and we were unable to locate a store that sold the right filter.
We were also disappointed with the condition of the private roof top patio area. The lock was very difficult to open and close, the plants were overgrown and it was very dirty. The grill itself was dirty and the tools were filthy. We soaked them but it was difficult to get them clean.
The windows were dirty with bird poop and that took away from the beautiful view. When we reported this to Susan she was very responsive and the next day Shara, one of the owners came and cleaned the sky light and the patio area as best she could.
Because of the fragility of the blind in the bedroom we opted to not open and close it and left the window closed during our stay.
Because of the number of small details that need some attention (all of which I shared with Shara) we could not give an excellent rating...but we probably would stay there again if we ever made it back to Victoria.
