Luxurious Escape From South Texas heat

  • 5 of 5
This was a terrific vacation, five weeks in spacious surroundings with the feel of an art gallery, yet comfortable, inviting, and with all the nice conveniences that help make the stay particularly relaxing. For location this is Hard to beat. Fronting on the harbor, a wonderful restaurant/brewpub next door to the complex, Victoria's Chinatown With great food, TV's, acupuncture and massage beginning literally across the street from the other side of the loft complex. Yet thanks to positioning and excellent soundproof, your secure and quiet inside Until you choose to go out and see the sights.

This unit is also just a short walk (in Victoria's wonderful Summer climate) to the inner harbor with the Empress Hotel, Legislative lawns and the provincial capital's legislative building, and site of numerous concerts, festivals and other public events. If you stay for a week or more like we did, by all means have a rent car to explore the island, your inside secured parking is less than 50 feet from your entrance door. But for short stays there's plenty to do within walking distance. In fact walk West along the meandering harbor coastline Out to where you can sit and relax enjoy the magnificent inner Harbor view of both the Empress and legislative incoming cruise boats and international ferry, plus watch the seaplanes take off and land. For break from walking, jump on the harbor taxi right outside the door to your loft And take a fun ride to wherever you want to go in the local harbor. Also a spacious loft office set up made what was for me, unavoidably, partly a working vacation painless and comfortable. This place is a winner, come visit and enjoy!

We love to walk, and we wanted to see downtown Victoria, and we found this Townhome to be the perfect place to stay. Just one block from China town, we cut through every time we went for a walk. There was always something interesting going on there. My wife and I are vegan, and Victoria is the most vegan friendly city we have ever visited. Be Love and Rebar were two of the best restaurants that we have found. And don't leave without taking a whale tour. After cruising with a pod of killer whales, I will never be the same.

The Waterfront Loft was as nice as the pictures. I enjoy cooking, and found the kitchen to be fully stocked with the appropriate cookware for making some nice meals at home. After a trip to the farmers market, we found everything we needed to prepare the food. Frances was very helpful when we arrived and made up feel very welcome. We had a rental car, and it was parked close to the door and very convenient. A two block drive and you are on the main road to the airport. The loft could not have been in a better location.

We are already discussing dates for a return to Victoria. It is a beautiful city.

Mermaid Loft

  • 4 of 5
What a wonderful location for a vacation.It is close enough to Chinatown for most provisioning and within very easy walking distance of downtown Victoria where there are inumerable good pubs and restaurants.
We had two adult kids with us,stayed comfortably for a month, and managed quite well without a car although we did go further afield by the #31/32 bus from nearby Douglas St. to the Uptown Mall outside the city for some supermarket items unavailable from the Chinatown shops--a 15min or so ride.
The property itself was well presented,the owners very friendly and helpful and otherwise everything was as we were led to believe it would be.
There is absolutely no doubt that were we to return to Victoria this would be our first choice for accommodation

Kal and Family Made Our Stay Exceptional

  • 5 of 5
This beautifully decorated and well situated loft was the best-ever experience my son and I have had with VRBO. It is truly a family affair once one arrives: each of the owners bends over backward to make sure all aspects of one's stay are first-rate. The furnishings, appliances and cleanliness of the loft are of a luxury class and the loft itself, situated right on the Victoria boardwalk, is decidedly the nicest area of town. I highly recommend this stay.

Mermaid Wharf was Great!

  • 5 of 5
My aunts and I were in Victoria for a long weekend. We had a terrific stay at Mermaid Wharf. The location is a short walk to everything downtown and being on the water was fabulous...loved watching the rowers going by every morning. The condo was larger than I had imagined and we had tons of room for 4 of us. Everything we needed was there and Francis and Toivo who care for the condo were so lovely and accomodating. Very clean and comfortable and even though it is close to the bridge we all remarked on how quiet and peaceful it was. Made for a great stay, thanks so much!
